I am a vegan animal lover with a deep love and respect for companion animals. I simply can't get enough time with dogs, and I will adore your pup(s) during their stay with me. Before joining DogVacay, my roommate and I used to hang out at the Shaw Dog Park - yes, without a dog - just to get our doggie fix! I spent my formative years with furry family members (4 years experience living with and caring for two dogs) and am comfortable interacting with the smallest Chihuahua to the biggest Golden Retriever.
I live in a dog-friendly and cozy rowhouse surrounded by families, with a small fenced front yard and the Shaw Dog Park a five minute walk away. My two roommates are also dog-lovers, so your furry friend will have endless care and attention. I work just blocks away on 14th Street with an hour-long lunch break perfect for midday check-ins, so I will be spending time with your pup morning, noon, and night.
Our home is clean and well-kept with plenty of space for your dog to relax and play. Food is never left out or accessible in the kitchen so your dog is safe, and dogs are welcome on the couches (if you allow that at home). Pups can sleep where they are comfortable and will be free to roam the house. There are a plethora of parks nearby from Logan Circle to Meridian Hill, and many of our neighbors are also dog-owners so your pup will be very welcome on our block. We are in a rowhouse with thin walls, so we do best with dogs who don't bark.
I work a standard 9am-5pm job in the neighborhood so pickup and drop-off times during the week will be during the mornings and evenings. During weekdays, I will be available outside of working hours and during the lunch hour to attend to your pup. During weekends, I will be at home to spoil your dog nonstop other than running a few hour-long errands. I am an active and playful person, so each day your pup will enjoy at least 3 walks and unlimited playtime at home. I also offer baths and daily runs if that's something your dog would enjoy.
Look forward to welcoming your furry family into a loving home-away-from-home.
*** Additional fees and rate info:
Please note, if you are unable to pick up your dog by 8am (weekdays) or 10am (weekends) of the last day of the visit, you will be charged a $15 late pick-up rate. Pickups after 6pm will be charged $20.
Federal holidays plus the day after Thanksgiving will have an additional charge of $10/day added to my standard rate.
