About Lauren

Hi there! Welcome to the Dapper Doxie Den! (AKA, my spacious, safe, and puppy-proof apartment in a quiet residential section of Ballston.)

If you haven't guessed, I have two adorable rescue mini dachshunds named Hunter and Penny (ages 5 and 6 years) who love to play and snuggle. I've owned dogs my entire life, and have dealt with pretty much every possible doggy issue from separation anxiety to epilepsy to picky eaters, so I'm comfortable caring for any pups with special needs.

I live on a quiet residential street in a garden style complex with a HUGE lawn/grassy area for the pups to play in. Unless otherwise requested, a stay with us will include three walks a day (20 mins minimum, 45+ in the afternoons), play time, and lots of snuggles.

I'm happy to discuss any additional requests (baths, trips to the Shirlington dog park, special meals, etc), and can provide some basic obedience training if needed (I'm not a certified trainer, but I've had to hire professionals for almost all of my dogs in the past so I've picked up some tricks!).

Pups are welcome in the big bed, or I can crate them depending on your preference. The furniture is all puppy friendly as well and I have a Bissell Pet SpotBot to take care of any accidents. I am willing to take one large, or two small dogs at a time. I regularly pet sit for my friends with small dogs and am used to having up to four at a time.

Penny and Hunter love to play, and can't wait to meet you and your pooch!
