About Justin

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
To ensure your pup has the best experience possible, we typically avoid overlapping Vacays. The calendar will be marked as "Unavailable" if another pup is staying here on a given day. If you're interested in a day that appears blocked off, please feel free to send a general inquiry and we may be able to work something out.

Ajax and I live in a spacious row home with my girlfriend, Michelle. Our house includes a large, closed in patio and is also within easy walking distance to plenty of green space.

Each day includes walks around the neighborhood plus unlimited indoor playtime at home. I am able to provide transportation to a vet in the event of an emergency. In fact, Atlas Vet is just a few blocks away.

As long as the pups all get along, I am comfortable caring for any breed and any age.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions that you may have. Ajax and I look forward to meeting you and your pup.

Follow us on Instagram too! Our handle is @uniondogboarding.

Justin was great! Very organized prior to the visit and provided regular updates over the holiday weekend.
As always our two dogs, Rowdy and Colleen came home from Justin's, very happy and relaxed. Justin had some hysterically funny video of Rowdy chasing Colleen, showing us how happy he is at Justin's home. Ajax is a perfect host.
Rowdy and Colleen were very happy dogs staying with Justin. Even though it rained for many days, Ajax kept them occupied and willingly shared his bed and toys with them.

The daily photographs were entertaining and clearly showed how content the dogs were staying with Justin.

I love having Justin take care of our dogs. They come home contented.

Our pups just returned from another wonderful weekend with Justin, Michelle and Ajax. The dogs had a fun-filled weekend and came back with smiles on their faces. We look forward to booking with Justin and Michelle again!
Our dogs are ecstatic and know when we are arriving at Justin's - almost overcome with joy to be arriving. Justin sends great photos and updates which we really appreciate.
Justin and Michelle take such great care of our dogs. They come back happy and healthy!
Union Dog Boarding is always our top choice when we travel. Whenever we can, we adjust our trip dates to make sure Rudy can stay here.

As always, Justin did an awesome job taking care of Rudy. When we arrived to drop him off, Rudy (tail wagging) led us right up to the front door.

Great photo updates throughout the stay (one funny one: Rudy watching 'cat tv' through a crack in the backyard fence), and a happy dog when we arrived for pick up. I'm sure Rudy is looking forward to his next visit!

Justin, Michelle and Ajax did a great job of taking care of Rowdy and Colleen for the day, when we went up to NYC to visit museums. The two dogs looked extremely comfortable in the photo that we received of them lounging in the backyard. When we picked them up they were happy to see us, and very relaxed.

Thank you again and again, Justin, Michelle, and Ajax! Now I feel guilty for not having a kiddie pool. ;)
Justin and Michelle took excellent care of Rowdy and Colleen. They shared pictures of the dogs every day, sometimes showing Rowdy and Colleen sunning themselves in the back patio or resting comfortably in the living room. Both come back very content. I highly recommend Justin and try to use him whenever he is available.

Very easy and flexible. Our dogs go beserk with joy upon arrival in anticipation of some time at Justin's.
Our dogs love coming to Justin's
Great, flexible, easy once again!
Fantastic as always!
Justin was great. He sent daily updates, often with adorable photos, which was wonderful since this was our first time there and my dog doesn't always like other dogs. But Ajax is so laid back that they apparently quickly became good friends and did joint squirrel patrol in the back yard! Justin's emails reassured me, which allowed me to enjoy my 2 week trip. I would definitely use him again.

Our two Brittany puppies couldn't have been in better hands. The daily pictures and narratives kept us in touch with them, and they clearly had a wonderful time with him and his own Brittany, Ajax. Our only concern is that they might like his place better than home!

I'm grateful that I can leave for vacation feeling like my pups will be in good hands. Thanks, Justin, Michelle, and Ajax for another DogVacay!
Justin and Ajax are excellent hosts. Rowdy and Colleen thoroughly enjoy being with Ajax. He does a fantastic job of keeping them entertained. They come home happy and exhausted. A wonderful combination.
We were having work done on our bathroom and didn't realize it would be so loud. The dogs were not happy! I called Justin at the very last minute and he agreed to watch them for the day. The dogs couldn't have been happier when I asked them if they wanted to go see Justin and Ajax! Justin and Michelle, what would we do without you?!

It was a full house with our dog (Pilar), Ajax, and Rocky another guest dog. What could be better than picking up a happy dog who wants to stay and keep playing with her friends? She had an epic 24-hour play date. We have had only GREAT experiences leaving Pilar with Justin. Looking forward to the next one in a couple weeks.

Justin and Ajax the spaniel were fantastic! I felt great about leaving Gatsby there from our first meet and greet. Gatsby adores Ajax, and I know they had a great time. I think we've found a great local dog care option for our travels.
Pilar LOVES staying with Justin. She doesn't want to leave. We love getting text messages with photos seeing all the fun she is having. Communication and everything is easy and great.
Butters had an amazing time per usual with Justin and Ajax. Butters was beyond thrilled to ring in the New Year with his buddy Ajax. Justin came through in the clutch during the holidays and kept me updated throughout my trip. Can't recommend them enough!

Thanks, Justin and Michelle, for another great visit!!
Justin is so great with our two dogs. He sends a photograph every day to show what they are doing and the dogs are always mellow when we pick them up. We always know that they dogs are having a great time at Justin's house.
This is the second time my puppy Pit Bull at four months has went to Justin. My pup's energy is at 98 (out of 1 to 100) at all times when he is at home with me. The following morning after a day at Justin and Ajax's I took my dog out for his regular potty time and back in to eat. My pup is usually the one to wake me up for potty and breakfast but not this morning. I had to make him wake up and push him outside. He came back in and went straight to his cage and flopped right back down. He never goes in his cage unless I direct him to. He is either pup tired from his day of partying with Ajax's or broken hearted because he couldn't find Ajax. Either way it appears his day at daycare was successful.

Another wonderful experience with Justin and Ajax! Our dog, Titus loves spending time at Justin's. We received plenty of pictures and status updates to let us know how our dog was doing and it was obvious he was having a great time. We always feel Titus is in great hands when he stays with Justin. Thanks again and see you next time! :)

Viggo had another great visit with Justin and Ajax! Justin is great about providing us updates and photos of Viggo daily to put our minds at ease when we're on the road. He has also been very flexible with drop off and pick up times surrounding our travel itineraries. Highly recommend!

My dog is "hooked" on Justin.
Justin loves dogs - need I say more?
Justin was great, as always. When we made the reservation, we had one healthy dog. When it was finally time to go away for the weekend, we had adopted a second dog and our first dog was recovering from minor surgery! Justin took on all the pill-giving and epsom salt-soaking responsibilities without complaint and checked in throughout the weekend. It was a very stressful time, but Justin helped make me feel like everything was going to be ok. Best of all, the pups had a great time. Thank you, Justin!

Everything was easy and flexible with plenty of responsive communication. Receiving texts and photos showing how Pilar was doing was great as well as the fact that Justin has a dog and the two had a lot of fun together!
Justin was an incredible host! He was able to accommodate us on short notice when others backed out. He had great communication leading up to our stay as to what to bring, what to expect, and he wanted to know as much about Dottie (our dog) as possible.

During Dottie's stay Justin sent us regular texts and pictures to let us know that she was having a great time.

Justin was also super flexible when our travel plans were delayed and we couldn't pick up Dottie until 7pm. When we picked Dottie Justin gave us a full overview of the weekend.

It's almost impossible to find such great service in DC, let alone flexible and affordable. It was great to know that Dottie was getting personal care rather than just being cooped up in some strange kennel all weekend. It was also nice that Dottie would have a welcoming fur-host and playmate, Ajax (he's awesome too). We will definitely be visiting again and would recommend Justin to anyone looking for a great host.

Justin and Ajax made Rowdy and Colleen extremely comfortable. I loved seeing the pictures of them absolutely exhausted from activities during the day. I have never seen my dogs so tired..it was awesome.
Justin was a wonderful host to Hades. and Ajax was a fun companion. I got plenty of updates on Hades, and he came back home happy and tired. I'll definitely use Justin and Ajax for my future DogVacay if they are available. Thank you so much!!!
We have two English Cocker Spaniels and they were very contented dogs when we picked them up from Justin. They had the run of the backyard, which they clearly enjoyed. They also found a great place to sleep in the dog bed. We were very pleased with their stay at Justin's and would highly recommend Justin as a place to stay.

Justin and Ajax were great! Justin was very responsive from the start -- always keeping in touch with us as we went out of town and sending great updates daily. Ajax was also a great companion for our pup -- enough energy to keep him going and very playful. We could tell Gonzo was having a great time. I highly recommend Justin to anyone out there looking for a place to leave your pup for a weekend or so.

So glad I found someone to take care of my dog, at a reasonable price!
Our dog Rudy had yet another excellent experience with Justin and his dog Ajax. When we arrived to drop Rudy off, he got really excited as we walked up to Justin's door, and started pulling trying to go inside.

When possible, we plan our vacations around Justin's schedule because we've never had a better experience. It's great being able to travel without worry knowing Rudy is having fun with Justin and Ajax.

Justin, Michelle and Ajax are awesome. Teddy is a puppy and therefore high maintenance but they took it all in stride and sent me the cutest pictures/videos. I think Teddy had more fun on his vacation than we did! I would leave Teddy with them again in a heartbeat. They went above and beyond on all counts and made me feel great about the whole process. We had a flight delay situation and they were super accommodating of Teddy having to stay one more night last minute. In summary, they are really excellent. Their place is super nice too.

Justin was awesome and super accommodating of our last minute daycare request. He even sent us photos mid-day to check in! We'll definitely be leaving our pup here again next time we're in DC!
This was Rudy's second time staying with Justin, and we were again very happy with the experience.

Justin takes great care of Rudy, and this time even took him out to swim in the Chesapeake Bay over the weekend to escape the heat.

Rudy will be back for another week later this summer!

I always feel super comfortable leaving Wyatt with Justin, Michelle, and Ajax. Whenever we walk by their house on walks Wyatt always tries to go in. That's about the best endorsement you could get!
This was Butters third time staying with Justin and Ajax. He came back exhausted from all the weekend playtime. Can't recommend them enough!
Wyatt had another great stay with Justin, Michelle, and Ajax! He came home happy and exhausted. Justin is great about checking in with photos and notes every day and is extremely responsive. We always feel very comfortable leaving Wyatt with him when we go out of town. Wyatt is already looking forward to his next stay.

Justin took great care of my dog! He was very flexible with my schedule which made drop off and pick up incredibly easy. He has a lovely home for dog vacay and provided my German shepherd with plenty of exercise. He also sent pictures and status updates on how my dog was doing. I would definitely recommend H Street Dog Boarding!

Another great stay with Justin, Michelle, and Ajax! We were so worried when this last snowstorm made an unexpected appearance while we were away, but they made Viggo feel right at home. Can't thank them enough for the peace of mind knowing Viggo is in good hands!

Justin is great! The only thing I worry about is that someday he will not be a DogVacay host. :)
Justin was extremely easy to work with and was able to accommodate a last minute reservation. This is the second time my dog has stayed with him, and I highly recommend him!
Our dogs Junie and Jake just spent their second stay with Justin and Ajax. Once again, they came home happy and tired! We will be back again in the future!
Viggo had a wonderful time with his buddies Ajax and Justin! This is Viggo's second Dogvacay at their H Street Corridor home, and both experiences have been great. Highly trust and recommend!
Lucky had a wonderful week with Justin, Bryan and their dogs. I liked getting the daily pictures and updates. Lucky had as good a vacation as I did. I would definitely take her back.
Justin was great. Hudson got along with his dog Ajax very well. We receive photographs of Hudson during our stay which was very nice.
As always, Justin was great. I know Booker has a great time when he's there and that he's in the best hands.
This was Butters second time with Bryan and Justin. Can't recommend them enough! Pickup and drop-off was extremely flexible, and Butters came back tuckered out from all of the fun he had.
We didn't think twice about leaving Booker with Bryan and his crew. This was our second time (with a third already reserved), so the drop-off and pick-up were especially easy. Booker is still a puppy, so we know he can be a handful, but I never feel like he's a burden when he's there. I really can't recommend these guys enough.

Bryan, Rooster, Justin and Ajax are the best! Cheppie was tuckered out after wrestling matches with the pups, and they posted great pic updates on their Instagram account! Highly recommend to anyone in the DC area for dog overnights.
Bryan and Justin took great care of Rudy for eight days. They posted several photos and a video on Instagram (@hstcorridordogboarding), and we could tell from the pictures that Rudy was relaxed and having a really good time. He looked like he was doing the exact same things he does at home which is exactly what you want to see.

We'll definitely be using H Street Dog Boarding for our next trip. Highly recommended!

Bryan and Justin were fantastic with my dog! I usually hear that she is hard to handle, but they had no complaints and made her feel comfortable and cared for. I especially appreciate the daily walks and text/photo updates!
This was a return visit for Montez and a first time for his sister Kala. Seems like they had a great time with Rooster - it was hard to get them to leave! Thanks to Bryan for taking such good care. Montez is looking forward to his next visit!
We came back from our trip to two happy, tired dogs! Our dogs can be a handful and one of them is particularly picky about her friends (both human and canine), but it was obvious that Bryan knows what he's doing and is knowledgeable about dog behavior. We loved the text updates and photos. We will definitely send Junie and Jake back to hang out with their new friends again!

Bryan and his pups were great. Lucy was a little shy when I dropped her off but two days later when I came to pick her up she was jumping around. I know that Bryan and his pups put her at ease.
It was our first time leaving Clementine to a dog-sitter, so we were a little bit nervous, but Bryan was great--making her feel at home right away and sending us some texts and pics to let us know how she was. Clementine seems to have had a great time at Bryan's, enjoying the spacious house and the friendly company of Ajax and Rooster. We'll definitely go back to Bryan's next time we travel.

My dog had a great time with Bryan and his dogs.

Bryan was very responsive to my request and our dog meet up went great.

While I was away Bryan set photos and updates and he was very flexible on the timing of my pick up.

My dog was well cared for and had a great weekend playing with his new dog friends. I'll definitely look to Bryan for future dog care needs.

This was my first time using DogVacay and it was a great experience. Bryan was very quick to respond to my initial inquiries and answered all of my questions. We set up a meet n' great time where my two pups could meet his -- everyone got a long well. I knew my two pups were in good hands while I was gone over the weekend. Bryan kept me updated and sent pictures. He was also very flexible with me on pick up time. I would highly recommend Bryan.

Mollie LOVES going over to Brian's, and he takes great care of her.
My 7 month old puppy Ollie had a great time at Bryan and Justin's, and he got along well with their two dogs. They were VERY quick to respond to my texts, and posted a lot of pictures on Instagram. I'll definitely be contacting them again in the future!

Bryan and his roommate were an awesome find! We were trying to find someone to keep our 4 month old puppy while we went out of town for an extra long weekend, and were having a tough time. No one wants to keep a puppy, they're so much work! Bryan met with our puppy Booker and it was an instant connection. His other dogs got along fabulously with Booker and we didn't think twice about leaving him there. Bryan sent lots of photos and texts while we were out of town, which helped ease our guilt of leaving him - we knew he was having a good time. We will certainly use Dog Vacay and Bryan again!

We were delighted with Montez's stay. Seemed like he fit in perfectly with the hosts and the host dogs! We appreciated the daily photos and the Flickr page with more. Thanks!
Butters had an awesome time during his long weekend with Bryan and Justin. They sent pictures throughout the weekend and were very flexible in coordinating drop-off and pick-up times. Will definitely be contacting them again in the future for Butters' next vacation.

Mollie had a great time, Bryan was very friendly and flexible on timing, and I will definitely check with him first next time I need someone to keep Mollie.
Bryan and Justin were great hosts to my dog, Lola. They were very flexible with scheduling and sent me updated pictures throughout the weekend. I will be using them again.
Bryan was great! He sent us pictures, and even a video, of our dog while we were away. She had a great time playing with the other dogs and clearly got lots of affection from Bryan too. And when our flight home was cancelled he was able to host her for another night. Would definitely use Bryan as a host again!
