About Robert & Stephen

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a dog-loving pair that grew up with dogs in our native state of New Mexico, and are excited to provide a happy, loving, home away from home for your four-legged loved ones!

We both have previous experience dog sitting, and have been doing so from very young ages. We have a combined experience of 12 years dog sitting. We are happy to host the dog in our apartment as well as watch over them at your residence.

Stephen is very active and goes on long runs, and is more than willing to keep your furry friend in shape on these runs. Both of us are more than willing to take your dogs on walks as well. We are both active and do not mind playing fetch, frisbee, or any other activity that your dog loves.

We live on 17th between T and U and are one block away from the S Street dog park. If you would like, we would be more than happy to walk our guests to the park. We also have a front and back yard that are fenced off and provide a nice space for your dog to get out and get a bit of fresh air.

Robert and Stephen have a very pleasant basement apartment in a small house. The front yard is dedicated entirely for their use (the back patio is for the upstairs unit). There is also a dog park conveniently located extremely close to their apartment for dogs who enjoy playing with other pups!

While I was there, Robert and Stephen were watching a little white doggie and they seemed to have a great rapport with her. Both are very excited about having a chance to take care of dogs!
Robert and Steven were our "go-to" dog sitters while they were in DC when we had a busy wedding season. We're sad that they left DC, but would highly recommend them to anyone in their new city!
Robert and Steven were great with our dog. We would definitely use them again!
Robert and Steven were great with our dog. We're so sad they left DC! We would highly recommend them.
This was my second time leaving Titan with Robert and Stephen. They continue to be great hosts, and sent me several updates while I was out of town. Titan seemed to have a great time, and Robert and Stephen will continue to be my top choice for dog sitters when I need one!
Robert and Stephen were great. Super friendly and Riley seemed to have a great time. They sent great pictures! Definitely would have her stay with them again.
Robert and Stephen were so great with my pups. From the meet and greet, to drop off/pick up, they were attentive and quick to respond. Teds really felt at home (as evidenced by their photos) and I can't wait to use them again!
This was my first time leaving my newly adopted dog with a sitter, and I was pretty nervous as to how she would do. But Robert & Stephen sent me reassuring texts and pictures every day (knowing I was an anxious new dog mom), and Mo seemed very happy! I would definitely use them again.
These guys were great to work with - very responsive, clearly super attentive to our dog, and really friendly. I'd take him to stay there again in a heart beat.
Robert and Stephen were very flexible and took great care of Minnie. They were able to stop by for feedings and regular walks so she was able to stay in her own home. Minnie was happy and relaxed when I got back. I will definitely use them again!
Robert and Stephen were so awesome and flexible. They watched both of our dogs - Tyson and Sam - for a weekend. They kept us updated with pics and bent over backwards to meet our schedule, even when it changed. We are using them again this weekend!
Thanks, guys!
Robert and Stephen were great hosts!
Robert and Stephen did a great job! They sent me a few updates with photos of Lily throughout the week, and she was a happy pup when I picked her up and took her home.
I hesitate to give these guys good review in fear they will get more clients. I want to be sure they always have space for my dogs. Seriously the best dog sitters I have used in DC. Very knowledgeable, flexible and good communication.
Robert and Stephen are our "go to" sitters for our senior dog. They send photo updates, are highly communicative, and are very easy to work with. I cannot recommend them enough!
Robert and Stephen are the best. They are very responsive and flexible. I look forward to working with them in the future!
Our pup, Bo, had a great time staying with Robert and Stephen. We live in the neighborhood and walk Bo near their apartment often. Bo now stops in front of their apartment telling me to open the gate so that he can go in and say hi to Robert and Stephen. This gives me a good indication that our pup enjoyed his vacay!
Robert & Stephen are the best! They are very attentive, responsive and use common sense when taking care of our pets. I plan on using them all the time for when I am on travel for business and leisure! I encourage you to do the same. My pup was smiling when I picked him up.
Robert and Stephen were very responsive and easy to work with. Even when our dog had a stomach virus while we were out of town, they communicated clearly and were responsible. I would definitely recommend them to other folks in the Dupont/U Street/Logan neighborhoods!
I had a great experience with Robert&Stephen! I would definitely book with them again.
Robert and Stephen were very accommodating hosts. They were very flexible on pick-up and drop-off times, which worked great for my travel plans. Titan came home very happy, and I would gladly ask them to take care of him again the next time I travel!
Robert and Stephen are amazing! They made us feel so comfortable while we were on our cruise. They updated is often and our puppies were so happy with them!
Robert and Stephen took amazing care of our pup! When we got stranded at our destination for two extra days due to a snowstorm in DC, they graciously extended our pup's vacay and even volunteered to go buy her extra food! We look forward to hopefully booking another vacay with them again soon!
Great experience with these guys, very flexible for pick up and drop off.
Robert and Stephen are amazing! Our dog, Belle, loves spending time with them. They always update us with pictures on how the trip is going, which is such a comfort. We trust them completely and we appreciate the love and attention they give to our dog. We are so happy we found them!
So awesome! They are so sweet and lovely. Stevie loved them and they stayed in touch constantly.
Exceeded my expectations and that's not easy. Robert and Stephen were incredible hosts for my dog going so far as to send me pictures and texts updating me on her stay. Would highly recommend them. This is my first time using this service but will def. do so again.
