About Megan

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We would love to have your pup join us and our golden retriever, Steve at our Alexandria home with a 1/2 acre fenced in yard! Steve loves to meet new friends!

As dog lovers, we know the uncertainty and anxiety that come with having to leave a beloved furry family member, and so we'll take extra care to make your pet as comfortable as possible, while also keeping you aware of what we're up to.

We regularly watch the dogs of our friends and family members.

We often go on local hikes and jogs with Steve, so please let us know if you'd like us to offer extra exercise in this way!

Our schedule and the dogs:

We are home much of the time, as we work both remotely and close to home.

A typical workday would involve:

An early morning walk and play time in the yard before we leave.
A walk or run in the yard at lunch time from 12-1.
Nonstop care from 4 pm until bedtime (The doggies are welcome to sleep wherever they are comfortable).

A typical weekend would involve:

Nonstop fun! We like to go on walks, jogs, hikes, car rides, trips to the VA wine region etc.. Just let me know if you have any concerns or restrictions!

Our house:

We live in a two story house with an open floor plan. We have a half acre lawn that is entirely fenced in (Steve likes to sit and wait for squirrels).

The dogs would be free to roam the house while we are there. If we were to leave, we would simply fence off the formal living room and they would have free access to the rest of the house.

Always a blast having Megan and Stevie watch our dogs. Megan is a sweet heart and Stevie is the most lovable pup ever. Our dogs really enjoy visiting and running around in the huge backyard.
Megan did a great job caring for my 2 dogs for a week. Our girls enjoyed playing in their fenced yard with her golden retriever, Steve, and going for walks. I like seeing the photos that she texted each day. Our dogs seemed happy when we returned and were in no hurry to leave. We would definitely use her again.

My two Labradors thoroughly enjoyed their stay with Megan, Charles and Steve. They are wonderful host, and that attribute was abundantly evident by the level of attention, dedication and pictures I received while they stayed there. They have an ideal set-up in that their fenced in yard allows for the dogs to roam around freely. Both of my boys were exhausted when they returned home; in fact, one was snoring shortly after we left to drive back to Arlington.

I strongly endorse their services and definitely have them listed in my "preferred" provider.

Megan is wonderful and our dogs love Stevie. I was so happy that their first overnight experience was here at their house. We were away for Labor Day weekend and just had a lot going on. Megan was flexible with drop off and pick-up time.

She also put up with the overnight shenanigans our dogs pull on us. They're notorious for falling asleep in their dog beds and waking up in our bed, so they adjusted well to that. Trust me, it's not easy when a 55 lbs and 35 lbs dog try jumping in your bed.

Anyways, happy the pups are staying with her next month and look forward future dog vacays with Megan and Stevie.

Zoey was so well cared for with Megan!! She loved playing in their big back yard and in their beautiful home. Megan sent great updates and pictures so we always knew she was having fun. We plan to do another vaca soon when travel plans come up. Highly recommended!!

Megan and Steven are great hosts! They watched our fur babies and played with them on a super hot and humid summers day.

Megan was very flexible with our schedule and we did drop them off rather early. I definitely appreciate how she sent a video and it was just the pups darting around the huge backyard enjoying life. Malbec and Bordeaux were so exhausted when we got back, they just crashed. In this case, a tired pup is a happy pup. :)

Steven is such a cuddle bug too and has such a great temperament. Can't wait to see them again in a couple weeks.

Bernie loved his stay with Megan! He loved having a big yard and a playful dog to keep him company while we were away. Megan sent regular updates and pictures of the fun he was having. Bernie returned exhausted and slept for his first two days back.
Megan was amazing to work with and Steve is a super sweetheart! We scheduled a meet and greet and she responded very quickly and was very flexible with pick up and drop off times. Our dog loved their huge backyard and was very tired when she got home. We would definitely recommend her to anyone and look forward to using her again.

Megan was awesome! She was super flexible with pick up times and took great care of my Blue, who had so much fun with her dog Steve. I will definitely use her again!
My two Aussies stayed with Megan and her husband while we went on a last min vacation. They loved it! Megan has a HUGE backyard for them to run and play. She took extremely good care of my girls and sent us pictures and updates often.

We will definitely use Megan in the future. Highly recommend!
