*Taking care of your pets is our number one priority.*
Hi my name is Tara, I live with my family which consists of 2 dogs, Parents, 2 younger sisters and grandmother. I will be providing Daycare and grooming with the help of my youngest sister Rubaa, who also has experience with dog sitting, check in/visits and working at an Animal Hospital walking and feeding pets. While I have worked at various Animal Hospitals doing the same but also as a Vet Assistant in Fairfax County area. I have taken care of family pets on various occasions in addition to pet sitting, check in/visits for various clients. We both are personally dog lovers but we do love all animal's. We treat every pet as if they are ours, and they deserve nothing but love and respect. So your pet will be in good hands.
I offer full grooming service in our home for only Small & medium Dogs ( 1 - 40 lbs ). I will contact guest once there pet is all done to go home.
**For bathing at the moment I use a regular hair dryer which does not dry as fast, so it takes longer to groom the pet.
Contact me for individual services such as bath, nail trimming, de shedding, and anal glands.
Note: My rule is health and safety first, If you let me know that your pet is a biter or has other nervous issues, I will take precaution. However, there are times an owner does not know their pet has any issues during the grooming process, so if your pet gets too stressed, without any warning given by guest, I will stop immediately and contact the guest to let them know it could not be done, no charge, I will only charge for services I am able to finish. I do not rush through my grooming's, so if your pet is matted it may take longer and your pup may need to be completely shaved depending on how bad the matting is. Please let me know in advance if this is something that may or may not be a problem so I can give my full attention to the pup. Feel free to message me with any questions.
I have different hair length charts to choose from
Our 2 dogs are Tyson an 8 year old Maltese and Milo 2 year old Beagle mix. stay's inside most of the time whether in the bedrooms or by someones side, he is people friendly but does not like other dogs so we keep him away. Milo is a sweet guy and happy guy who loves to say hi to people and pets, he also loves to play in our backyard. So when you drop off your pet, he/she will have full access to our backyard and home while playing with our pup.
*Suggest to bring your own crate if you own one*
If your pet is not into playing with our dogs or does not get along with them, no problem, I will make sure both my dogs are kept away. Will crate yours if needed, if crate is available. If your pup does not do well in crates or you do not have one, we will separate the pets ourselves within one our bedrooms in which they will be accompanied by one of us, you can be assured your pet will be on constant watch while in our care. All pets have access to water all day, If you would like to bring food for your dog with the drop off, just let us know. This way you can feel satisfied that your pet will be in safe hands.
Our backyard is fenced up completely with Slats and fenced on one side, and all Slats on the other side. Pictures are up so you can see for yourself. You can see Milo playing in a few of them. Our gate may look a bit off due to being rusty but i can assure you it is always locked and completely safe.
