About Ani

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome to your puppy's second home! Between my husband James and I, we have nearly 30 years of combined experience with pets. We love dogs and look forward to hosting your family member.

While here, your pet can enjoy full access to our sunny, first level, screened in porch - perfect for naps, and our large yard with the back fully fenced. We live at the end of of a cul-du-sac and rarely have to worry about traffic. We can also offer a private bedroom for pets that just may need a little 'me' time.

In addition to daily walks, we offer bathing services with a walk-in shower, ideal for older or disabled pets. We are also happy to provide daily texts/pictures to pet moms and dads so you can see how your family member is doing.

****Dogs over 40lbs will be accepted on a case by case basis, and a meet-and-greet will be required for all dogs over 20lbs.

Excellent host! Thank you Ani!!
No issues...first rate care
This was our first time using a pet sitter in their home and it was a great experience. Ani and her family are amazing and Angel was very well taken care of. She had lots of love and attention and the pictures Ani sent every day were greatly appreciated. We'll definitely use Ani again.
This review is overdue, my sincere apologies. Our Daphne had a wonderful time at Ani's. She was very accommodating, responsive to messages and kept me updated throughout the day with pictures.

Wonderful family! Daphne is usually a little hesitant around kids, but it was completely heartwarming to see her feel comfortable with them at the end of the day when I picked her up. She came home tired from a day full of adventure and we couldn't be any happier with our decision. We highly recommend her for your pet(s).

Thank you very much Ani!
Ali is a first rate host. Our Puggle Princess was very happy. Ali communicates promptly, and was flexible with drop off and pick up times. Thank you!
Ani went above and beyond while watching our pup. She sent us pics and kept us updated as to how he was doing. This was our fist time using a dog sitting service and it was extremely comforting to us to know that our pup was 'at home' at Ani's.
Our dog looked great-content, happy, and energetic as usual when she came home-all proof of good care. Our dog had a great experience with this family. Ani sent pics daily that were much appreciated!
Ani She treated my dog as own of her own children, and kept me update every day on Joshua...Wonderful family. I'd rate Ani a 10 + Thank you for all the love you gave my boy
Ani did a great job!
The dogvacay was ok. I had to ask for photos to be sent. My dogs seemed to be relaxed. Would have preferred an onsite meet and greet.
Daisy seemed to have a good experience. I appreciated the pictures and updates provided.
Overall, having my dog stay with Ani was a good experience. She did a great job staying in touch with me during the time I was away. I got an average of about 2 texts a day with pictures of my pup looking happy and well cared for (which helped quell my worry about leaving my dog behind for a long weekend). I will be bringing my dog back for future stays!
Ani did an amazing job and my puppy was sad to leave her care. I would highly recommend her and I will definitely be requesting her care again.
Ani, thank you for an awesome stay for our pup! Shelby seemed to enjoy the company of your family and we certainly appreciate the pictures and daily updates. It made our trip stress-free knowing she was in good hands. Thank you again and we look forward to requesting your services on our next adventure! David & Nicole
While visiting in Woodbridge, VA, my girlfriend and I decided to take a weekend trip to New York City. We needed a place to board our dog Cesar. While doing some research, I was lucky enough to find the DogVacay website and so lucky to find Ani on this website. Ani and her family were great with our dog, Cesar and her dog Charlie was a great playmate for Cesar too. Cesar had a great stay and came home very happy. Ani, provided daily photo updates, which we really appreciate to see while we were on our trip. This was a great experience for us and Cesar too. Thank you so much Ani!!! It is a pleasure to recommend Ani to anyone in need of dog daycare or overnight boarding!!! Thank you Ani & to your family too!
Ani was amazing and super helpful and flexible with taking care of Enzo. From the meet and greet to dropping him off, Ani made sure Enzo with comfortable with his new setting and that I as an owner was comfortable as well. She sent constant updates and was very reachable. Such a fantastic host.
We have stayed with Ani several times and always have a great experience. She sends pictures, and my dog seems to feel at home. We plan to choose Ani anytime we need to board.
Molly loved her stay with Ani and her family! We will definitely be using her as our pet sitter from here on.
Nice place for a puppy stay. They took good care of Maloo. They do have a lot of other dogs in and out of there as well, which I probably should have asked about prior. Our malamute isn't fixed yet and he marked (first time he has ever done that in a house). Other than that though, fenced yard, and he was walked. :)
This review is long overdue but I wanted to make sure to write how pleased Stover and I were with the stay at Ani's house!!! Ani and her family was so friendly, welcoming and quick to respond to any questions I had concerning the stay. Ani was a great host and responded immediately to my reservation request.

During our meet and greet, Ani gave us a tour and the big screened in porch and the big back yard is a dog's dream. I was pleased to get a picture of Stover watching cartoons with Ani's son and getting lots of attention from him. He was part of the family!!! I will definitely recommend Ani and I'm glad to know she's right around the corner when I need help in the future!!!!!
This is the 2nd time Chewy has been with Ani and from the pictures we received he fit right in with her family. Chewy usually hides from children since he is a little older, but with Ani's children he was right by their sides. Again we thank Ani and her family for providing exultant care for Chewy. We HIGHLY recommend her for your pet.
This was our 1st time using Ani and we were very pleased. Chewy appeared to have received top notch care. We really like that we were able to meet Ani and her family at our house to see how Chewy interacted with them. This, we feel, is a very important step when choosing someone to take care of your pet. We highly recommend Ani as a great care giver and person.
Ani and her family were awesome! They really made sure our dog, Skye, was comfortable and a part of the family. Reservations, drop off, and pick up could not have been easier, and she really took a lot of the stress out of leaving Skye for a week while we went out of town. The daily pictures and updates were fantastic, too!
Thank you Ani!!!
Our dog Candy just loved staying with Ani and her family. They are super nice people and go that extra mile to make sure your pet is comfy. Ani and her family rocks ????
It was great! They were super nice and welcoming and updated us with pictures throughout our dogs stay. I highly recommend Ani for your dogs stay and I plan to work with her again on my next trip.
We've actually boarded our Hungarian Vizsla Remi with Ani, Jamie and family three times. You could not ask for a better family to leave your fur person with! Lots of playtime for Remi and daily photo updates for me. I have nothing but praise!
Duchess was well taken care of and I know she received cuddling time. . She's a lover, even if she is a foody. Thank you.
Ani was great! She sent me pics and updates every day of Nessie. She had a couple other dogs there so Nessie had plenty of playtime with them and Ani's son.
Another excellent experience for my pups! Ani
and her family treats our dogs like family. One of my dogs is very shy but she gets along so well in Ani's home as Ani takes special care to help Luna and Stella feel safe and comfortable. We really do not have to worry about them at all when they dogvacay at Ani's home. In addition, we received awesome picture updates!
Thanks Ani!
See you in January ;)
Kate, Mark, Stella and Luna
Ani and her family were great - she took great care of Bentley and I would highly recommend her!
Ani and family were absolutely wonderful. She took my dog in on short notice, had a fenced yard for the dog to go out and play, and sent daily pictures and updates. I wasn't at all nervous and my dog very obviously loved her stay. I'm so glad to have found some good, local people to help out when I'm busy. Thanks Ani!!!!!
Ani and her family were great with our puppy Harley. We used her daycare services and Harley came home a happy and tired pup. Ani was very flexible and friendly. Her little pup Charlie was also a delight. He was very patient with our hyper puppy. You can't go wrong with this family. Thank you so much Ani!!!
Ani and her husband were a terrific resource! I've used them on multiple occasions and they are incredibly accommodating on short notice and saved me great deal of headache and cash.

I would recommend Ani for anyone looking for someone responsive and open to your concerns about leaving your loving pet in someone else's house.

Thanks Ani!
You can not go wrong trusting your fur babies to Ani (and her wonderful husband too)! Our trip was very last minute and Ani replied right away to our request; we set up a meet 'n greet, to make sure everybody felt comfortable with everybody else - dogs and humans! - and the rest is history! Fenced yard, enclosed porch - which the doggies loved! - and a home built for dogs and dog love! Our 1yr old had trouble sleeping, so Ani brought her crate into her bedroom to sleep so she wouldn't be lonely! Ani kept in contact daily sending pictures so we wouldn't be lonely or worried! We would use Ani again in a heartbeat!
I am so happy that we chose Ani and her husband Jamie to watch our dogs! Both were wonderful, warm, and seemed very knowledgeable and prepared to take care of our little ones. Ani was kind enough to give me periodical updates on how my guys were doing. Their home was clean and they were very accommodating for our XL crate. We will absolutely be using Ani and Jamie in the future.
Ani was great! We had our husky stay with her really last minute but she was really accommodating, especially after we changed the pick up time. Kato had a great time, thanks Ani!
