About Krista & Dave

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are Krista and Dave, a married couple who is hoping that we can open up our household filled with love to your dog while you are away!

Six years ago, we rescued Jessie, a Jack Russell Terrier Mix. This was the best decision ever as Jessie has shown us a new world of animal love. Recently, we rescued Baxter, a Beagle Mix, to add to our family. Jessie and Baxter love to play with dogs of all ages, types and sizes and love long walks and cuddling up for long naps. They both belly rubs! Jessie and Baxter are spoiled rotten and we would love to spoil your dog the same while you are away.

We live in a single family home with plenty of space to run around inside and a fantastic yard for outside playing. We have plenty of streets around for walking as well as fantastic trails down by the Potomac River. You are welcome to bring us your dog’s favorite things or anything that will make your dog feel at home. Jessie and Baxter are also willing to play and share their toys!

We are both working professionals but can be flexible with drop off and pick up times. Additionally, we are available at home on the weekend; so on Saturday and Sunday your dog will receive constant attention, love and belly rubs. Finally, we would be happy to send you photos of your dog while you are away as we know how important pictures can be when traveling!

We welcome dogs of all ages and most sizes. Housebroken dogs only please. If your puppy is under the age of two, we would require a kennel or cage for your dog just for times when we are not at home.

Bella enjoyed her stay with Krista and Dave! We had a last minute request and they were very accommodating. We will definitely use them in the future!
Our two dogs were well cared for with Krista and Dave. We would definitely consider leaving them again for future trips.
Our 50 lb goldendoodle has stayed with Krista and Dave twice now, both have been wonderful experiences! They were very flexible on the drop off and pick up time and great at communicating with us, but those are just logistics. They are truly wonderful people who genuinely care for your dog. Their sweet dog Jessie was great with a new dog around. Usually our pup doesn't eat much when we're away but she did eat at Krista & Dave's. When I picked her up I was worried she preferred to stay with them :)
Krista and Dave were a great introduction into DogVacay. Our pups are currently passed out exhausted and after receiving multiple pictures throughout the day, we can tell they really had a great time and made some new pup friends.

Since this was the first time we used DogVacay, we were a little nervous b/c that was the longest time we were both away from our pups, but it was all for nothing... we can't say enough good things about Krista and Dave.

Thanks again and Bordeaux/Malbec looking forward to staying with y'all again.
Rusty loved them! They took great care of him! Definitely recommend them.
Krista and Dave are fabulous. Truly dog loving folks. Their puppy Jessie was such a sweet host as well. My Cairn Terrier, Andy, got along so well with Jessie who was very patient with him. Krista and Dave took wonderful care of Andy and kept me informed with pictures along the stay. Their home is well suited for this and kept extremely well. I was very pleased on the meet and greet and had a much nicer vacation knowing Andy was in such good hands. I will certainly go back again to them. Great sitters!!
Wonderful! Our energetic dog was kept busy and active all weekend. Krista and Dave sent picture updates throughout the weekend and were flexible coordinating drop-off/pick-up times. We will definitely be calling them for future trips!
Krista and Dave did a great job taking Gus in on fairly short notice. We were able to do a meet and greet very quickly and were immediately put at ease with how well he got along with their dog Jessie. They were very flexible and accommodating to our individual situation. Gus was happy and relaxed when we picked him up and the pictures we got along the way let us know he was having fun. I'd definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a dog friendly environment.
This is a late response but Maxx got excellent care. I would always bring him back.
Krista and Dave were great sitters! They made the dogs feel very welcome and took great care of them. My one dog wanted to stay with Dave. :)
Krista and Dave are VERY thoughtful and attentive caregivers! My wildling was well taken care of and happy during his long visit
Dave, Krista and Jesse were amazing host. Lilly loved her time while she stayed at her house. They sent updates to us daily as well as some great pictures.When we picked her up she didn't want to leave. They truly took care of Lilly like she was one of their own dogs. Excellent response time on all questions and really made us feel comfortable leaving Lilly with them. Thank you for taking care of Lilly and they will always be our first choice to watch Lilly whenever we travel. Thanks again!
Hank has stayed with Krista & Dave several times now and they have been awesome every time! I always feel that he is very well cared for. They have sent me photos while I was away and they have always been accommodating with pick up and drop of times. They are absolutely my first choice whenever I need someone to watch him! I highly recommend them!
Krista and Dave were awesome! Their flexibility and overall warmness made a very hectic moving week so much easier. My pupster received a warm welcome and I would highly recommend them to anyone.
My timid, shy dog had a wonderful time with Krista, Dave, and their dog Jesse. I received prompt and excellent communication, as well as photos, videos, and updates about how my little girl was doing. It was such a relief not to have to worry about her.

Thanks so much for taking such good care of my baby!
Krista and Dave were both very nice people as well as welcome hosts to our dog, Chopper. They were up for a meet and greet within 24 hours and were able to accommodate our dog on somewhat short notice (3 days). Daily pictures and updates were nice, we could tell Chopper made himself right at home. Would recommend and book again!
Krista and Dave were great! We were traveling from out of state for a wedding and Krista was wonderful at communication and even came home before she left for a meeting so we were able to drop our dog off earlier. We received several pictures and updates throughout our dogs stay. I wish they lived closer so we could use them regularly. I would definitely book with Krista and Dave again if we are back in the area. Thanks guys!
An extremely nice young couple. They were very accommodating and easy to work with. Sent pictures regularly and seemed to really enjoy having Remy. He was happy when I picked him up, and tired when we took him home. Grateful to have Krista and Dave as hosts for Remy, and look forward to using them again..
