About Heidi

As a pet owner, I know how nerve racking it can be to find a safe and happy place for your four legged loved ones. But don't worry! They will have a great time hanging out with me, Meg and Allie! Three plus walks a day, yummy food, and all the cuddles they want. Don't be mad if they want you gone more often! I live in Falls Church, Va with my husband and our roommate. Our house is nice sized and very pet friendly - no children! My husband and I have been involved with fostering both cats and dogs for several years now and enjoy having pets of all types come to visit. I work part time as an event coordinator for a local nonprofit and not far from the house. Your pet would not be left alone for more then 5 hours. We only do one reservation at a time and availability is based on first reservation request.

I would definitely recommend Heidi and her husband - they were fabulous - Qouga had a lot of exercise during the weekend and was a happy dog when returning. Both made sure to keep us in the loop about how our dog was doing and sent pictures. Thanks again- so sorry it took me a while to leave you a review!

Would have loved to take him on our honeymoon, but didn't think he'd enjoy the islands as much as we did. So, he went to his other island and loved it as always.
Heidi is simply the best.
We miss her when she's not available and Shone has to go to the "other" guys. :)
Very recommended!

Halo, my name is Shone, I amma doggie and my speaking English is not so gut. Butt, I wanna say I love Heidi....she is my favorite hotel when mommy and papi are not home. Tank u Shone
Wonderful as usual....what more to say...:)
We continue to feel very lucky to have Heidi take care of Shone whenever we're out of town. She is very accommodating, gives Shone all of her love and simply allows us to not worry about him when we're gone.
Heidi and Mike were awesome hosts...from the "Meet 'n Greet" to the actual stay. Their love and compassion for their own dogs is shared with their furry houseguests.
Heidi & Mike were tremendous. They took a lot of time to get to know our dog and what she was like. They clearly love dogs, and we felt very comfortable leaving our dog with them. We'd do it again without a second thought.
I usually feel a little sorry for anyone that has to dog-sit our extremely energetic and playful 10-month-old pup, Zoey. She can be an extra helping of crazy when she's in a new environment and around other dogs, but Heidi didn't seem too phased by the time we picked up Zoey. I also received a few pictures via text of a calm, sleepy puppy - these were much appreciated. Clearly Heidi has a way with animals and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone with a fur baby.

Why do I keep getting the feeling that my dog likes it better at Heidi's house than at ours? :) Because Heidi is a great host to our dog, cares about him and ensures that he has a great time while we are out of time.
I can only recommend Heidi, it's as simple as that. Thank you as always.

Heidi was outstanding. I am new to the area and my parents did a test run with DogTopia. I was not impressed at all. I know my parents wanted to take their vacation so I suggested they look at Dog Vacay. Luckily they found Heidi, who accommodated a quick request for a Dog Vacay.

Heidi was around, played with me, took me on walks and made me feel like part of their family. She even provided updates and pictures to mom and dad so they knew I was in good hands.

I hope to see Heidi again in the future!

This must be the third or fourth time we leave our doggie with Heidi while we're out of town. And I am running out of ways to describe our great experience with Heidi. So, simply put: Thanks and we will be back....:) Highly recommended.
Since this was our first time away from our year-old Shih Tzu, we were a bit nervous to leave him for 11 days, but Heidi and Mike's care and concern for Cooper made them spectacular hosts. We received comforting updates from Heidi, and the photos she shared certainly underscored how much Cooper enjoyed his stay. Our family was able to enjoy spring break, knowing that we didn't have to worry at all about our pet. Upon our return, it was clear that Cooper had enjoyed his vacation as much as we had enjoyed ours. Our trust for Heidi and Mike mean we will definitely try to arrange all of our vacations around their availability.

My pup Sofie and I had a terrific experience with Heidi and Mike. They took time to describe their routine in detail, show me around their space (and let Sofie explore), and hear about Sofie's routines and habits. While I was traveling, Heidi communicated every day to let me know all was going well. Sofie was as happy and healthy when I picked her up as she was when I dropped her off. I couldn't have asked for better care for Sofie and will definitely be reaching out to Heidi and Mike again in the future.

Heidi and Mike were wonderful hosts! The picture updates were very sweet and they even worked with my puppy on learning some basic commands. Rudy was worn out by the time I picked him up so I know he had a great time with them and their girls! As a first time owner of an indoor dog, it was great to hear their suggestions on leashes, collars, and other supplies, and training. Thank you Heidi and Mike!

Knowing that our dog will be safe and happy with Heidi is most likely the biggest reason why I don't think twice anymore before deciding to travel overseas, whether it's for just a couple of days or over a week.
Heidi is a host that anybody will come to appreciate and be able to rely on.
Thank you as usual!

Right away, at our first meet at great, I knew that I had lucked out by finding Heidi. She is a responsible and caring host, and I would definitely bring Buddy back for a second "vacation". I am a worry wart, but I was amazed by how at ease I felt at leaving Buddy in Heidi's care. My biggest worry while I was away was that Buddy would like his vacation spot better than his home! He was happy to see me and my husband when we picked him up, but I could tell he really like Heidi, too. Thanks a bunch Heidi!

Having left our dog with many people in many different places over the last years, I can say without a doubt that this has been by far the best experience, and this is solely due to Heidi! Her experience, calm nature and never-ending love for our dog has left him happy during our absence and has given us peace of mind.
Whether communicating before or during his stay at their house, everything worked out perfectly. Their house with attached yard is great, no dog could ask for more.
The next chance we get, we will trust our Shone to her again.

Heidi is an awesome host! I'm so happy I was able to leave Izzie in such capable hands. Heidi was extremely responsive and very flexible regarding drop off and pick up times. I enjoyed getting pictures and updates from Heidi which put my mind at ease while away. Izzie was very happy when i came to pick her up and didn't want to leave. I highly recommend Heidi and family. Thank you!!!

We are so grateful we have found Heidi to help us watch our dogs while we go on vacation. She was extremely responsive and we could tell Romeo was so comfortable staying in her home! We were relaxed while away and did not have to worry about him not getting enough attention or being unsafe. Thank you again Heidi and family!

Heidi is a very conscientious host; I felt as comfortable leaving Caico with her as I do when she is at home. And Caico did not want to leave!
