About Sarah and Kevin

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We love dogs and enjoy spending time outside. We live right next to the Shirlington Dog Park and we usually take our dog, Kojo, there once or twice a day (he loves the small dog section of the park.) Both of us are local public school teachers, so it's hard to find two people who are more patient and have a better work schedule, especially during the summer when we are at home!

Our dog Kojo is friendly and partial to small dogs, which is why we created our Small Dog Sanctuary. We know how difficult it can be to find places where our dog is comfortable (he's usually a bit timid around large dogs), so we wanted to set up a place where small dogs like Kojo can feel welcome and secure.

While our condo is not the biggest in the world (we are public school teachers after all) it is cozy and welcoming. When we aren't at the dog park or on walks we spend most of our time snuggling with Kojo on our couch and we would love for your dog to join us!

We look forward to hosting your furry family member!

**Unfortunately with the school year starting back up we aren't as available as we are during the summer. We still would love to host your puppy, but if they will be staying with us during the week they will be home alone with Kojo from about 7:30-3:30 monday-friday. Kojo loves having a friend with him while we are at school, but just be aware that during that time they won't have the opportunity for a potty break or a walk. However, in the morning before school and when we get home in the afternoon the first order of business will be a fun trip to the Shirlington small dog park!!**

**Unfortunately Kevin has developed an allergy to dog hair, we kindly request only low or non-shedding dogs**

Misiu's another great stay with Sarah & Kevin. They took a great care of Misiu while we were traveling. Without them, we wouldn't have a worry-free vacation. They were nice to take care of Misiu even though they were already fully booked. They sent photos every day & dropped off our dog to our apartment the night when we were back. Highly recommend.
