DC DOG SITTER | 'Where All Pets Become Family!': what do users think?


Alexandra Dittmer: I have been using DC Dog Sitter to care for my Olive while I am away at work and I am SO HAPPY I CHOSE THEM!! They send the cutest pictures of Olive having tons of fun with them on her walk with messages about their time together!! They also make sure to follow all of my special requests which makes me feel Olive is very safe with them! They are also super kind and accommodating of my requests! They also sent the most adorable Christmas package for Olive and I with the cutest ornament of Olive!! DC Dog Sitter is a must have if you’re looking for reliable and loving pet care!!!

Elizabeth Baker: I’ve been using DC Dog Sitter since I got my puppy and I can’t say enough good things about their services! Jenn, the owner and her team are always communicative, accommodating, and have also offered me amazing advice. My puppy loves her two dog walkers, Gabby and Gina and I always feel that she is safe in their care. They update me with photos and a summary of the walk, which I love.
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words! We are so grateful for you and L! 🐶🐱🐦🐾 😊❤️

Mary Thompson: The best Pet Sitters on the East Coast!! Our dog jumps for joy when she sees the DCDS Team and heads out the door with barely a look back. If you can get over the feeling that your dog might prefer to be more with the DCDS Team than her own family - all is great! Here is a recent photo from her DCDS vacation while we were away. The team is awesome about keeping us up to date as well as providing great adventures. Jenn is also a wealth of information for nutritional tips and reducing your pets overall toxic exposure.
Response: Thank you so much, Mary! We love caring for your sweet girl! 🐶🐱🐦🐾 😊❤️

Claire Alsup: These folks are simply the best. We have a cat with critical daily medication needs. When we go out of town I always feel secure and trust that She's being well taken care of with anyone from DC Dog sitter. It's clear they truly love animals. They are over communicators on the portal so we know exactly how our girl is doing, her meds, etc. recommend to everyone!
Response: Thank you so much!!! 🐶🐱🐦🐾 😊❤️

M. Mattison: I wish I could leave 10 stars. DCDS is bar none the best dog sitting service out there. What sets Jenn and company apart from everyone else is how much they cater to both you and your pet. Jenn and company are prompt and responsive with communication, and if you are pressed for time will pick up your pet and drop them off at the beginning and end of each stay. Each member of this group LOVES animals. They cater to any particular pet diets, provide specific home remedies for any pet ailments, and make sure that each stay is a pampered vacation for your pet. However, what truly impressed me about Jenn was how she worked with me when a family emergency extended my five-day puppy sitting in to five weeks. Jenn fed my baby on her own dime *not charging me*, took my little girl to extra puppy play dates, checked in with me to see how I was handling everything and was thoughtful and compassionate when I was completely stressing out. I can’t articulate enough how wonderful everyone was, going so far as to pick me up from the airport and leave me and my Scarlett a little goodie basket when I got home. I’ve used DCDS several times and don’t trust my fur baby with anyone else. If you are looking for a fantastic and loving group of people to take amazing care of your furry one, DCDS is it.
Response: Love this! Thank you so much! We are so grateful for you and S. 🐶🐱🐦🐾 😊❤️

david hoag: We used DC Dog Sitter to take care of our cats while we were gone on vacation for a week. They were great! Very communicative, as they would send messages when they were on their way to our place, and then again after they had been there, providing alot of detail and photos of what they did while they were there. They took great care of our pets, and it gave us great peace of mind as we we away, that our pets were getting attention and well cared for. They followed our instructions to a T, including watering the plants as well as all the cat-related stuff, and they took pictures of the cleaned litter box, their food, and of course our cats during their visit. Very happy with this service in our first time using them.
Response: Thank you so much!!! It was our pleasure to care for your furry crew! We look forward to providing care again! 🐶🐱🐦🐾 😊❤️

Erin Matson: DC Dog Sitter is such a great small business! When we adopted our small terrier mix dog a year ago, she was nervous around new people and new dogs. The team at DCDS met her where she was at - taking the time to slowly introduce her to her walker and to other pups. Since lockdown, we’ve been sending our dog on Adventures with DCDS, and it’s been by far the best thing that happened to her. She has blossomed. She cannot wait every week for the DCDS team to pick her up and whisk her away for a few hours of awesome adventure. The staff are responsive - weekends, late nights, whenever we have a question or need to reschedule. DCDS has helped bring our dog out of her shell! Thank you to the DCDS team!
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words! We so love having you as part of our DCDS Family! 🐶🐱🐦🐾 😊❤️

Jillian Campbell: Jenn and her entire team have been wonderful with our dog. They walk him every day during the week when we are at work and he goes on "adventures" on Thursdays. The adventures often consist of hikes, trips to local parks, and over the Summer lots of swimming. We also use DC Dog Sitter for sitting when we go away. Our dog has some special needs, but DC Dog sitter has been exceptionally accommodating and understanding. They are extremely reliable and I love getting numerous messages/pictures throughout the day on what he is up to. All of the dog walkers have been great and we have not had any issues. Jenn is great about communicating with us and is so knowledgeable about dog health and diet. She has been a great resource for us and has always gone above-and-beyond to answer any of our questions. I know my dog is safe and happy when he is in the care of DC Dog Sitter. I cannot give them higher praise.
Response: Thank you so much, Jillian! We love helping Toby get to his happy place swimming and running free! 🐶🐱🐦🐾 😊❤️

Fatima Delante: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Reliability, ResponsivenessThe team is really professional in handling pets, especially Jenn! She knows effective tips and tricks that I never knew I can apply on my pet. DC Dog Sitter goes above and beyond in caring for your furry companion!!
Response: Thank you so much! 🐶🐱🐦🐾 😊❤️

Wendy Gordon: My doggo and I have been using this service since our dog was a pup. We participate in Adventures. Such a wonderful program! Our dog loves it and he adores his team of walkers and canine friends he has met and plays with every time he goes out. It gives him socialization, exercie and a little training review--all of which is so helpful. The fact that I get a review and photos after each hike is fantastic as well. I love this service. Highly recommend.
Response: Thank you so much! 🐶🐱🐦🐾 😊❤️

District Pet Care: what do users think?


Brittany Etters: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Reliability, Responsiveness, ValueJackie and her team are excellent! We have used District Pet Care two separate times and our kitties and fish were well taken care of! I love that we receive daily updates of and photos while we are away. It is such aa great relief to know that our pets are in great hands while we are away.

Hannah Tickle: Great service and very reliable! I always get picture updates with a sweet message. I can trust my animals will be safe with District Pet Care while I’m gone.

Kyle Barnhart: Jackie was a lifesaver when my petsitting plans fell through a few days before a two-week trip! She was quick to respond and set up a meet-and-greet with me and my cat, during which she explained District Pet Care's procedures thoroughly and took note of my cat's specific needs. Throughout the trip, she provided regular updates with photos and notes. The cost was reasonable and the peace of mind was priceless. I would highly recommend District Pet Care to anyone looking for petsitting services in the DC area.

Peri B: Jackie is very sweet and professional. She was flexible in terms of schedule and made me feel very comfortable leaving my two fur babies in her care. She also sends updates and pictures every time she visits, which is awesome. I will definitely use District Pet Care again whenever I go on my next vacation! It is nice to finally have a good pet sitter established!

Amy Smith: We love our District Pet Care friends! Jackie and Samiksha and the entire team are warm and friendly and take amazing care of us!! They also take fun photos and send them to our Mom every day! We agree with our Mom that Jackie and the team are the best sitters ever - so take it from us, you want District Pet Care taking care of you like they do us! - Sam and Kevin

Lianna Salva: Thanks so much to Jackie for taking care of my two boys while I was on the other side of the country. I've always been nervous to leave them alone when I travel, but Jackie's consistent updates made me feel better. She also has a way with animals, as one of my cats never leaves his hiding spot for strangers, but on the second day he let Jackie pet him. I'll be using District Pet Care for as long as I live in DC.

Tiff Cunin: I would like to give Jackie and her team at District Pet Care a 10/5 stars!! My partner and I have 2 kitties that have absolutely fallen in love with the care and attention they receive from District Pet Care who has been taking care of our furbabes since summer 2018!! The District Pet Care team is beyond professional and reliable. We feel safe and at peace when out of town, and though we miss the babes, we know they are in amazing hands. When we get home, whether from a weekend trip or a 10-day vacation, our kitties are content, healthy, relaxed upon our return indicating they have been cared for and socialized appropriately. We are super grateful to have found Jackie and her team, and cannot imagine our furbabes/home in anyone else's hands.

Katie Griffin: Jackie has taken care of my cat twice now, while I have been away for a week at a time. She does a great job! She is very professional and very good with my cat. There's no hiding under the bed when Jackie comes to visit! I love that I get photo updates and messages while I'm gone. I feel very comfortable trusting Jackie in my house and with my cat.

P A: Very highly recommend Jackie! Super sweet and reliable. When we returned home everything was spotless and our cats were happy and relaxed. She provides daily updates with photos which is greatly appreciated, plus she brought up our mail and watered our plants. Felt completely comfortable leaving our home and pets in Jackie's care and will definitely be doing so again!

Jenna Goins: Jackie is wonderful. I can't say enough nice things about her, she took absolutely great care of my cat while I was away, and kept me updated each visit with pictures. It made for such a great vacation, there was no stress worrying if my cat was in good hands or not. I will definitely be using Jackie the next time I need a pet sitter.

Pet Peeps: what do users think?


Brianna Marie Gorence: Gus and Mavid are great and have been taking care of my cat Nico for several years now. Gus is always friendly and has in numerous instances gone above and beyond to accommodate last-minute changes in my travel schedule. I know my cat is in good hands with them and would recommend them.
Response: Wee love Nico. And, thank you so much. It is nice to be appreciated. :-)

alonso bautista: DO NOT SKIP THIS REVIEW: As a pet parent - communication is vital to me. I spoke with Gus on the phone, he assisted me with questions, concerns, and thoughts I had. We spoke on the phone, we even had a meeting to make this process easier. It all worked out. I felt respected and heard, and most important I felt my pets were cared for. I never had pets before, so I am always concerned if they're okay - and with Gus I had that peace of mind. So look no further, prices are excellent, care is exceptional, and Gus is awesome. Alonso B.
Response: You're making us blush. Thanks, Alonso.

Alexis Vitiello: I just got off the phone with Pet Peeps after inquiring about my reactive German Shepherd and had the most incredible conversation. Gus walked me through options and helped me address all my needs regarding my not so sweet lady. I have a lot of confidence in his recommendation and opinions. For the past three years I have done A LOT for my dog, driven many miles, jumped through many hoops, and talked many folk's ears off. However in the 15 minute conversation I had with Mr. Elfving, I have never felt more heard, or understood. For the first time in 3 years I felt "helped" and I genuinely appreciate it. He did not meet my dog but I'm attaching a photo because she's cute.
Response: It was a pleasure to chat with and assist you, Alexis. I/we hope some of the recommendations are useful. And, yes, she is crazy cute. ;-)

Cameron R Rocha: Positive: ReliabilityThank you Pet Peeps for cat sitting during the Thanksgiving holiday. We had a sitter visit for four days, and each day we got updates with photos. It was easy to set up and the sitters are reliable and responsive. I highly recommend Pet Peeps.
Response: Thanks, Cameron. Glad you were able to enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday!

Marcie Cohen: My name is Zooey and I am a 13 year old Puggle. I have asked my person to write this note recommending Pet Peeps to take care of your beloved pets. Gus was my first dog walker when I was a puppy. I love him so much. He took me to my first Pride parade. We had sooo much fun together (we still do). He is reliable, responsible and my person said he is reasonable in price. Gus mostly manages these days but we still use Pet Peeps for my walks. My walker and I enjoy each other’s company as we walk around my neighborhood. My human and I strongly recommend Pet Peeps. Woof!
Response: We love you, Zooey!!!

Shannon Felder: We used Pet Peeps to walk our dog when we first adopted him in early 2018. Gus was very kind and we had a great first meeting with him before starting our walks -- you could tell he loves all pets and that he is passionate about his business. While we only used dog walking from Pet Peeps for a short time (we figured out our dog had separation anxiety and needed full time daycare to be his happiest), I would certainly recommend Gus and his team!
Response: Thanks for choosing Pet Peeps! It was a pleasure working with you.

Mallory Marlin: Positive: Professionalism, ResponsivenessThe owner, Gus, was able to find availability for my two cats on extremely short notice for the holiday season. My sitter was prompt and conscientious, providing me with photos and texts upon her visits. I was very pleased with the service. Thanks to Pet Peeps for taking good care of my cats!
Response: Happy to help, Mallory!

Ryen Burris: I requested pet sitting for my pet rats in College Park, and was contacted right away. While sadly the business doesn't serve College Park, Gus was so kind and helpful with helping me find places that would serve my area and provide great care. Would give 5 stars for how friendly Gus was, but one star off because you can't find on their website that they don't serve the DC suburbs, only DC proper.

Bruno Carvalho: Gus and his amazing staff have been petsitting our three cats for over four years now, taking care of all of their food, water, and cat litter needs- as well as making time to play and interact with them during their visits. Signing up for the service was easy- after a quick house visit with Gus, the owner, we exchanged keys, and from that point on, were easily able to book an appointment on their website. In addition, once the appointment was set and we were away from our home, Gus and our assigned sitters were extremely responsive to any questions or concerns we had, and were more than happy to send us daily photos and videos of our cats or to accommodate last minute requests or detailed instructions. Whether we were away from our home for a 1 day getaway or a 10 day vacation, it was extremely comforting to know that our cats were well cared for, interacted with, and and well taken care of. I would highly recommend this company for anyone looking for an affordable, responsive, and well-organized pet sitter!

Mike Anderson: Gus and petpeeps have looked after our cats for several years. They’ve always been responsive and friendly, even when I gave them extremely short notice sometimes (sorry!). The care has been top notch and nothing short of professional. 11/10 would recommend in a heartbeat to anyone looking for pet care!
Response: Thank you for the props, Mike. We much appreciate them and your continued loyalty through this trying period. Happy to be of service. Here's to S&T!!

Tails of the City Pet Care: what do users think?


Candice Ellis: I use Tails of the City for their cat-sitting service and have nothing but great things to say. The owners and staff are kind, professional, and responsive. Scheduling is a breeze, and pricing is very fair. I love that I receive a personalized email with photos and a detailed description of my kitty's mood, behavior, eating habits, etc, at the end of each visit. It really puts me at ease knowing that she's being looked after by such caring folks while I'm away. Thank you for being so awesome, Tails of the City! Kitty and I appreciate it very much :)

Joanna Ong: Great experience with Guadalupe! I hired her to walk my fearful reactive dog who avoided strangers to the point of paralysis. The goal was to get my dog to a point where housesitting when I travel for work could be possible. Within two weeks of daily walks, Guadalupe was able to retrieve and walk my dog on solo walks without me.

Shelley Thompson: We love Tails of the City! They are affordable and we get the best pics and updates from our dog walker (and portrait mode glamour shots!). Our shy girl has come out of her shell so much through her weekly walks with a group of other dogs through Tails of the City and has learned to play with other dogs at the dog park (previously she would just hang with the humans)! They are incredibly responsive in terms of scheduling and have a very easy client portal.

Jenny Gersten: Tails of the City saved me when I had to relocate to DC for 6 weeks with my dog. I came with my Labrador thinking she'd stay with me for just two weeks, but the care and service we got for dog walking and overnight pet-sits was so excellent that we ended up using their services for all 6 weeks. We had three different dogwalker and all of them took care, were prompt and communicative. My dog was very well taken care of, and I couldn't recommend this service more highly.

Denise Wales: We love Tails of the City! We use their dog walking and boarding services frequently. They take such good care of our pets and provide great customer service.

Jennifer: Great company! Have provided care for two of our pets over the last few years. Easy scheduling process and excellent communication with owners on how each visit goes.

Jonathan Spencer: Great service, trustworthy, and have attention to detail. They’re loving and competent care givers for all pets.

Quinn Tshudy: Tails of the City Pet Care goes above and beyond.

Kisha Tubman: Great place to cRe for your pets

Fetch! Pet Care: what do users think?


Whitney Louchheim: Our cat care person is reliable, responsive, thorough, and loving towards our cats. I appreciate FetchCare's logging system, in which we can see photos every day with a description of the cats' behavior. What a great way to let us relax while we are away!
Response: Thank you for your business and feedback!

Claire Crowley: Great service from Rob and Nadja! They took care of our beloved cat Petty for over a week while we were on vacation. We received photos and updates in the Fetch app. I'm so happy that Petty received quality care and attention while we were away. Rob and Nadja are the best! Thank you!
Response: Thanks so much Claire! Feedback from our clients means the world to us. We look forward to our next opportunity!

Sandra Brody: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, ReliabilityPersonable and responsive Company. For over 5 years I've trusted them to take care of my cat every time I go on a trip. The pet sitters are kind and well trained. I get daily reports and pictures so I know my cat is in good hands.
Response: Thanks so much Sandra!

Chris Lorrain: Ease of sign up - both to open an account and to schedule walks.Quality of dog walking; always arrives within the time frame, uses information provided to assure a good walk/care.Communication - if there is an issue or question I have, it's answered quickly.
Response: Thank you Chris! We appreciate the feedback and trust!

D B: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Reliability, ResponsivenessPet Sitters/Service Persons: I greatly appreciate the flexibility, reliabllity and professionally performed services. The cats love our sitter Matt. I am also very pleased with the Fetch app: makes it so easy to request services and make changes. I really do appreciate having this feature.
Response: Thank you! Your review and business means a lot to our team.

Vic Clarke: Great experience. Will use Fetch again. My pet sitter, Matt, did a great job and arrived at my house promptly to tend to my two cats. I like that Fetch assigns sitters who live in the vicinity of their assignments. My sitter got to my house at the agreed AM & PM timeslots. Also, I like that Fetch gives you options as far as number of visits per day and length of visits. Additionally, Matt communicated very well with me during the assignment.
Response: Thank you Victoria! We enjoyed providing care.

Matthew Westerby: Positive: Professionalism, ReliabilityFetch! knows how to communicate. It's so easy to schedule through their website, but if I need to talk to someone they are easy to reach. The pet care I've received is top notch -- always professional and thoughtful. I definitely recommend.
Response: Thank you Matthew! Your review and business means a lot to our team.

Emily S: I was really impressed with the level of communication I received while interacting with Fetch! From the moment I created my account to the journals sent by my pet care associate, I was always updated on the process and the services being provided. This level of communication put my mind at ease, especially the visit journals when the pet associate visited my cats. The brief summary and photos were great! It was nice to get to see my cats were receiving much needed attention while I was away!
Response: Thank you Emily! It was our pleasure. Look forward to next time. 😊😺☑️❤️

Nina Dsa: Fetch! has been really great! I've made two short trips in the last couple of months and I was assigned a primary sitter for my cat which means whenever possible, the same person will come to sit for my cat when I'm away. I've definitely been so much more at peace now...the pet sitter has been very responsive and communicative, I get detailed notes and pictures of my cat, and they seem to have gotten along really well too. I can rest assured that he's fed, has good company, is well-maintained, and just looked after when I'm gone.
Response: Thank you Nina!

Emily Tokarowski: We love the great service from both the Fetch team in the area and the pet sitters! Quick response rate, super nice and helpful, just an all around great experience. Plus, we love that there are checklists and images provided after each visit--it really puts us at ease knowing that our pet is receiving such thoughtful and detailed care.
Response: Thank you Emily! We love providing care for you all. 😊

Patrick's Pet Care - Columbia Heights: what do users think?


Jessica Roberts: Posy absolutely loves Mini Mondays at Patrick's. As soon as we get anywhere near the building, she starts whining with excitement, and once through the front door, she doesn't look back at me once. Ian and Emma are such wonderful trainers with her and I can tell she's getting a ton of enrichment playing with other dogs and doing activities all day. I've already noticed a huge improvement in her sharing abilities and recall and can't recommend the Mini Mondays Montessori program highly enough for small dogs! It is the highlight of her week and I love seeing her so excited.
Response: Awww, thank you for the kind review, Jessica! We <3 Posy. She comes to class with such a wonderfully happy-go-lucky attitude and she is such a positive, welcoming influence on her classmates!

Sneha: Baloo just completed Patrick's Puppy Head Start Part One and Part Two with Nikita, and I can't say enough good things about it. The first day I dropped him off, he was shaking and clinging to me. The second time, and every time after that, he ran right in. He clearly loves going and absolutely adores Nikita. I don't know what we would have done without them, we were very overwhelmed when we enrolled Baloo in their program. It really gave us a structured plan to work on with him, and it's been amazing to see him improve from week to week. Nikita is a puppy whisperer. She helped us with every problematic behavior he had, and he's grown into a really good boy. There are still a few things we need to work on with him, so I won't say we've 100% solved everything....but he is miles ahead of most other dogs his age that I meet. He's polite, he comes when he's called (even in distracted environment ). He's good about checking in. He also has all his important commands down. They introduced it during Head Start, and we reinforced it at home. I find that with new commands, the hardest part is getting it to click, which Patrick's does amazingly. Concepts that take me multiple days to teach the puppy, Nikita manages to do in a few short hours. They've helped him become socialized to grooming, weird noises and different surfaces, all important in a city! He's also learned excellent play behavior with other dogs. Nikita does such a great job of monitoring the puppies and reinforcing positive, healthy behavior. I also loved the photos and report cards at the end of the day, so did Baloo. When Baloo hears Nikita's voice, he drops whatever he's doing to come over and look for her. Overall, such a positive experience. I find that you really get out of the program what you put into it! The more you work with the puppy out of hours and reach out to the instructors for help, the more progress you see. Highly recommend it!
Response: Thank you for the kind words, Sneha! We loved having Baloo in Puppy Head Start. His confidence grew leaps and bounds durning his 16 weeks with us, and we truly loved watching him learn! We miss Baloo—hope to see him again soon!

Seraphina Ferraro: I cannot begin to sing the praises of Patrick's loudly enough. I brought my 7 month old puppy, Emet, who is a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, to see them today for his first ever grooming appointment. They were so communicative during the appointment, including me in Zoom calls throughout the day and letting me know how he did on breaks. It was obvious from the video chats that they put a lot of effort into getting him comfortable and gaining his trust. He's already an outgoing little guy, but they were so patient with him and it showed in how happy he was in the videos. Their report card was incredibly thorough and really let me know how things went, and included bonus videos of him getting trimmed as well as photos of the process. It's clear that they really love dogs and love what they do. He came out looking great, and they laid the foundation for many more happy grooming appointments to come.

Simon Roberts: We are so happy with the service and attention that our Shih Tzu/Mini Poodle mix Rocco has been receiving that if I could give Patrick's 6 stars I would. Their attention to detail and general concern for every dog in their care is amazing from Ian with Mini Dog Mondays to Emma with small dog Montessori. Their reports are frankly more informative than anything I ever received for my kids and given our dog's separation anxiety, knowing exactly how Rocco is doing is very helpful. In addition, the webcams give us the option to check on Rocco throughout the day. Great organization.
Response: Thank you for such wonderful feedback, Simon. We love having Rocco with us and are so happy to hear you're finding the reports valuable!

Jack Zietman: I don’t have enough good to say about Patrick’s Pet Care. Our small dog loves everyone there—human and dog—and the staff engage warmly, playfully, and attentively with her and all of the dogs. Our dog has been through the Day Care 101 program and now regularly attends Doggie Montessori School; she also goes to Patrick’s for grooming and some additional training. I can’t imagine sending our dog anywhere else—Patrick’s is just wonderful.
Response: Thank you, Jack! It is always a joy working with your amazing, sweet Ella!

Susan Patterson: I've been sending my pup Georgia to Patrick's Pet Care Montessori School for two months now, and she is making great progress! Georgia's social skills definitely needed some improvement, and Emma (aka the Dog Whisperer of Columbia Heights!) has been amazing with her, helping her gain confidence and teaching her to play well with the other dogs. Georgia isn't even sad when I drop her off in the mornings any more - she runs right in to say hi to Emma and her new four-legged friends. Highly recommend!

Zoe Yousik: I already recommend Patrick's to everyone I encounter on my walks so making it more official here. Emma Teller first did an amazing job training and guiding my cautious puppy through the newly created Dog Daycare 101. Then in the regular daycare Emma continues training all the attendees. She does the most to make sure the dogs are playing in appropriate energy level play groups, learning new things, and getting constant attention. The end of day report cards are lovely. Getting a video of my puppy walking up stairs, and activity she had completely refused to do, was the highlight of my week! We do grooming at Patrick's as well and they do a great job while still keeping my puppy so excited to attend.
Response: Thank you, Zoe. We love Memo!

Daniele Wilson: I wholeheartedly recommend Patrick's Pet Care!! Hands down, Patrick's Pet Care is one of the best doggy daycares in DC. My dog has slight anxiety around larger dogs and would prefer to spend all day cuddling with humans, which doesn't make for a great time at most of the other daycares in DC. Patrick's Pet Care not only has a location specifically for smaller dogs but their enrichment activities are a sure fire way to make sure your pup comes home happy and exhausted. The entire team at Patrick's Pet Care is great, but Emma is by far the best. Emma takes great care of my dog and makes the best report card videos that I look forward to watching every single time. I'm so happy that I found Patrick's Pet Care!

Capree Houston: Patrick's Pet Care is 5 star! After researching various doggy daycare options, I decided to give Patrick's a try. It is one of the best decisions I've made for my 11 month old Frenchie! My pup is a very "spirited" dog who goes from 0 to 100 in an instant, and never meets a stranger. Emma has done a great job helping her to focus, learn how to regulate her excitement level, and learn how to play at appropriate levels. I love that Emma teaches her new things and has helped her meet her goals in such a short amount of time. Although I pass several doggy daycares on my way to Patrick's in Columbia Heights, I wouldn't take my dog anywhere else!

Michon Bunch: I am super grateful to Patrick's Pet Care especially Emma. My pup absolutely adores Emma and loves the Montessori School curriculum. During drop off, Kori jumps out of the car and runs and dances all the way to Patrick's front door! As soon as Emma greets us, Kori runs in not even looking back for me. At the end of the day, I always look forward to the detailed report card and pictures of Kori's exciting day. Don't look any further than Patrick's for all your pet care needs even the excellent fear free grooming. Signed, a very satisfied mama and pup.

Saving Grace Pet Care: what do users think?


Julie Rush: My husband and I recently moved to the Navy Yard area with our 2 cats. We travel frequently, and finding someone new to care for them was a huge stress for us. We selected Saving Grace because of their reviews, and we have not been disappointed. We have used them on three separate occasions, and all three times, Paul Weiss was the caregiver. He leaves daily notes and will send photos if requested. Our most recent trip was two weeks long, and he watered our plants and freshened the litter box. We are so very happy with their service and highly recommend Saving Grace.
Response: Thanks, Julie! Paul is indeed a rockstar of the pet sitting world. So glad you found us!

Melinda Krakow: We have had wonderful experiences with Saving Grace dogwalking and boarding services. Our dogwalker, Selena, is the best! She is very reliable and leaves us notes each day to let us know how the walk was. She was especially wonderful in working with us on special requests when our senior dog was quite ill. We now have a young dog and she is very patient as he learns his puppy manners! Saving Grace has also been a great service for pet-sitting, even over longer holiday trips! Our pets have always been very well-cared for with SG services! Highly recommend if you have pets in the Capitol Hill area!

Alison McRae: I've used Saving Grace Petcare for almost a year now to care for my cat while I'm out of town. They truly are a saving grace! I don't know what I would do without a neighborhood petsitting group like this one. Very easy to drop off my keys before leaving town and they take care of everything. Very attentive staff as well -- I always receive cute photos and updates on how my cat is doing. They really pay attention to the notes in my account on how to feed/care for my lil guy, and I never come home to a messy litter box. Thank you, Saving Grace Petcare!
Response: Thanks, Alison! We love kitties and are happy it shows!

Nick Kaufman: I've used Saving Grace for cat sitting for at least the last three years. It's almost always the same woman who comes and visits, and my normally shy tuxedo has developed quite a fondness for her. Great service, can't recommend enough.

Emily Johnson: Tisha and her team are simply the best if you live in this neighborhood. I have worked with a few of the different petsitters in the past 18 months and have always been impressed--each one is a devoted animal lover, and treated my (loud, nosy, and often difficult) cat as their own. I cannot say enough good things about Saving Grace!

M: Really easy, web-based services that are perfect for helping busy people arrange pet care. I got daily updates with photos letting me know how my pet was doing while I traveled, and the pet sitter, Nancy, did an awesome job making the effort to connect with my pet and keep me in the loop. Highly recommended!
Response: Thanks, Marcus! Our pet sitters love what they do!

Kaitlyn Boecker: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Reliability, Responsiveness, ValueMy pup loves saving grace! Cries for about 10 minutes every time Patrick leaves after a walk 😂

Susanne Furman: I am providing this rating because of Buster's dog walker - Aaron. He is the best! He takes extra time with Buster, he carries him down the block to ensure that he gets a walk rather than taking him out and bringing him right back in. We are fortunate to have Aaron as Buster's walker!

JJ Miller: DO NOT GIVE THIS PLACE YOUR MONEY. The owner Grace is some gross right winger living in the 1950s. She didn't respect my pronouns and mocked instead, saying she "doesn't care".
Response: This review was written as part of a harassment campaign by a disgruntled Paychex staff member. We have never provided service for this person. Not only does she leave negative reviews but she has enlisted her friends to leave negative reviews about Saving Grace.

John Ransom: I've been using saving grace for two years now and have never had an issue. The staff are friendly and always leave a helpful note with a summary of the walk. I would recommend them to anyone.
Response: Thanks, John! We're so pleased that you are happy with our service!

Patrick's Pet Care - Brookland: what do users think?


Mandy Dean: I really can't say enough to express how wonderful Patrick's Pet Care is. We've been taking our Miniature Schnauzer, Steven, here since October 2020 and have had nothing but phenomenal experiences in every aspect - in Day Care 101, the staff worked extremely hard to help Steven with his severe separation anxiety, and Joe (who is now the training/dog walking manager) went above and beyond to form a trusting relationship with Steven so he could learn and thrive. After several months of consistent training, Steven was able to go to Montessori School, where he continues to enthusiastically engage in every activity and playtime that is provided by Emma, Bradley, Hannah, and Melissa. We will be forever grateful to the staff at Patrick's for helping our boy overcome his anxiety and be the fun-loving, energetic little ball of happiness that he currently is!
Response: Thank you for sharing Steven with us, Mandy! He's doing fabulously in Montessori School and working hard at playing with the appropriate energy levels and making friends with his classmates. We think he's so charming and confident!

Susan Kim: Patrick's Pet Care is amazing! My rowdy hound mix, Henry Potato, has taken advantage of Patrick's many offerings, including Daycare 101, individual training with Joe, and regular enrichment walks with the crew (Dakota, Ricardo, and Jacob). Joe has worked with Henry on improving his playtime manners with other dogs, and his leash reactivity. I appreciate and admire their commitment to being up-to-date on the latest science on dog training and behavior, and that they take their commitment to force-free, positive reinforcement training seriously. Also, Henry absolutely adores the enrichment walks with the team. They make sure he has a wonderful time on their adventures exercising, sniffing, and playing games - the videos and photos are a highlight of my day (see photo). I would highly recommend Patrick's to anyone looking for training, walking, and daycare services for their dogs - your doggos will thank you!!
Response: Thank you, Susan! Henry Potato is an absolute delight, and we're so grateful you give us the opportunity to be transparent about his walks. He's a Cup Game pro!

Jeremy Brownlee: Patrick's Pet Care has really helped 8-year-old Eugene come out of his shell. He came to us extremely anxious and jumpy. Since August 2021, through Daycare 101, the Dog Montessori School, and one-on-one trainings with Joe (who is amazing!), Eugene has gained his confidence to more happily interact with us, other people, and other dogs. We have been really impressed with the care that the whole Patrick's team has taken with helping Eugene grow -- I truly don't know what we would do without Patrick's.
Response: Thank you for your kind words, Jeremy. It's our honor to have you and Eugene as a part of the Patrick's Pet Care family! Seeing him grow and matriculate into Dog Montessori School this past summer was so rewarding. We're so proud of both of your hard work!

Alyse Mineroff: I brought my nervous Samoyed in for grooming and was thrilled with the quality of the fear-free grooming program they have at Patrick’s. They took all of the steps at my dog’s pace and made her feel comfortable along the way. My dog’s comfort was my top priority and they put lots of effort into making sure this was a positive experience for her. They provided me with a detailed report of how they did each step and how she felt about each part of the process. We will definitely be back!
Response: Thank you, Alyse! We're so glad to hear you and your gorgeous pup had a positive, comfortable experience. We can't wait to see you again!

Katt Aubry: Pluto absolutely adores Patrick’s Pet Care, and so do we! We have gone a couple of times for their fear-free grooming, and Rebecca’s attention and care for Pluto has been wonderful. We had been in contact with Emma for a couple of months as we wanted Pluto to join the Montessori school when he turned 6 months. We just started taking Pluto for daycare and the experience has been amazing. He was welcomed for an assessment, and Emma asked us about any goals we had for Pluto. She informed us that we could watch through their cameras all day as Pluto played with the other pups and participated in enrichment activities with Patrick’s Pet Care staff. Emma gave us a call midday to give us an update on Pluto which is something we never get at any other places. After the day was through, Emma talked to us for a while about Pluto’s experience, and provided an extremely thorough and illuminating report card with absolutely adorable photos of Pluto having a great time all day. According to the report, he performed really well except for during the dogs’ structured downtime. Pluto had a hard time settling down, especially with no humans around to comfort him. No surprises there - it’s something we’ve wanted to work on with Pluto. As a result, Emma recommended that Pluto work with Joe at Daycare 101 before he joins the full daycare program. She helped us secure an appointment for that the very next day, and Joe went right to work with activities to help Pluto become more accustomed to settling down when he’s by himself. When we went to pick up Pluto, Joe talked us through what they did, what worked, and he wants us to practice with Pluto at home. He also provided his own thorough report card and a video report, as well as some cute pics of Pluto in action. We anticipate that Pluto’ll probably need a few more weeks of 101 before he “graduates” to the full daycare class. We’ve been promised a graduation cap when he’s finally ready :) All in all, we are so thrilled to be working with Patrick’s Pet Care to give Pluto the enrichment, care, and training that he needs to be the best dog that he can be. We’re so excited to keep working with the entire Patrick’s Pet Care team. Thank you to everyone at Patrick’s who shower all the pups with so much love!
Response: Thank you for showing some of that love back, Katt! We love Pluto and are so happy to see him realize his full potential!

Angela Washington: Patrick’s is a leader in the DC community. I’ve been to the gamut of conventional doggie daycare places and they are the best. The truly individual attention my pup receives gives me peace of mind while at work. The personalized video report cards and photos at daycare also give me a chance to see just how joyous his day was. You can really tell that dog development is their passion. It comes through in the quality of service and great care they take with your dog family. So happy to have found them!
Response: Thank you, Angela – this is exactly what we are striving for and it's so great to hear! We love Diego <3

Meg Oates: Joe at Patrick's Pet Care is amazing! Patrick's Pet Care team is passionate, knowledgeable, and devoted--exactly who you want working with your dog. When we started working with Joe, our dog was afraid of the dark, ate the mail, and difficult to walk. Joe didn't just teach our dog new behaviors to address those issues, he taught me how to work better with my dog. Backed with the science behind positive dog training, Joe gave me tools to address my dog's behavior and manage challenging situations. Joe also helped customize plans for my needs like being able to walk the dog and push a stroller or getting my dog to find me upstairs when the mail comes so I can reinforce good behavior. As a result, my dog is more confident and affectionate, and I feel like a better dog parent.
Response: Oh my gosh, Meg – thank you for such kind words. We're so happy that we were able to help you and Val. It's been an absolute pleasure working with the two of you!

Katie Karp: We love the Patrick's Pet Care team! We have a anxious and fearful 2.5 yo bull terrier mix. The PPC team is always patient and accommodating with her- whether they are coming into our home for a walk, she goes to the PPC Brookland facility for fear-free grooming, or brings her best doggy friend with her to feel more comfortable during Enrichment 1:1 days! More than that, the PPC team is always excited to see her and take care of her as if she is their own. We wouldn't use anyone else and are so appreciative of the entire team! The webcams and report cards with pictures and video are also the best! We love to check in on her and see that she is so relaxed and having fun or snuggling with team members throughout the day!
Response: Thank you, Kathleen! We love having Moira around. Her gentle and trusting presence makes the grooming and teaching process so rewarding. Thank you for sharing her with us!

erin colleran: Our experience with Patrick's has been fantastic. The team at Patrick's has been working with our exuberant Whoodle, Bruce, since he was only 4 months old. We've enjoyed Puppy Class, one on one training with Nikita and Joe, Daycare 101, and fear free grooming. Bruce is now a regular at Montessori and rushes in each morning to enjoy his friends and the creative and fulfilling enrichment activities. Daycare 101 and one on one training with Joe has helped Bruce with some of his toughest challenges, including learning to rest in a safe space and leash reactivity. This has made our lives easier and, most importantly, made Bruce a more content dog. It has also been great to learn about the Fear Free training philosophy. I have never had a negative experience with any staff member at Patrick's and would recommend any and all of their services to any DC area pet owner.
Response: Thank you for such positive feedback, Erin! We truly love having Bruce and have really enjoyed helping him learn and grow over the past year!

Kei Tolliver: Our 1 year old pup has been going to Patrick's about 6 months now and we LOVE them so much. He is a regular at their Montessori School and also has done individual training and grooming service. Every single staff at Patrick is so wonderful, caring, kind, knowledgeable and genuinely LOVES what they do - our pup is always so excited to see them. We love the fact that they really pay attention to your dog's types/personalities and customize their approaches instead of forcing "this is the way" type of training. They encourage and celebrate positive behaviors and never punish "bad" ones. We love and appreciate their daily reports (much more personalized and detailed than the school reports we receive for our human child). We know our pup is in a great care and are so happy to have PPC in our neighborhood. Highly recommend!!
Response: Thank you, Kei! Cuddles is an absolute gem and we all love working with him!

Anju T: Ed is amazing! He delivered my new kitten Gizelle from D.C to Dallas, TX. I had multiple updates along the way. It was a great experience. Even after having her a few days, he has been a great resource to me. It has been a while since I was a mommy to a kitten.

Darrah Beasley: Trusting someone to pick up a brand new kitten sight unseen made me a bit nervous honestly- But I have never had an “Ed” Before :) The communication was incredible I even got pictures of each state as he traveled through them. Shared photos of the pick up and inside van so I would know my baby was safe and happy. He even checked up a later to see how we all were adjusting! Do not even hesitate to hire this man!!! He is a unicorn- super rare! Thanks Ed💛

Miranda Kathrein: Ed is so amazing and such a sweetheart! He has a heart of gold. He transported my kitties Milo and Maggie from Virginia to Chicago.

I cannot imagine anyone being better at this than Ed. He is just phenomenal! Thank you so much for everything! You have a friend for life. 💜🐱🐱

Jan Grant: I cannot say enough wonderful things about Ed! He is the kindest person I have met in a long time and we are now his biggest fans. He took pictures of our new kitten on his lay over to our state and assured us everyone was A-OK. He was very patient when we were 20 minutes late meeting him, and has followed up with us since we last saw him a week earlier to be sure the kitten has adjusted to his new home. If I could give him 10 stars, I would!!!
Response: Wow! Thank you so much for the glowing remarks! I am so happy that you were satisfied with the service we provided!

Lance Mathis: Ed is a great person and was absolutely amazing with our dogs. He always did his best to make things work with our schedule. During the process of our overseas move he made getting our four legged family members to and from their appointments easy and stress free.

Dog Dot Cat Pet Care LLC: what do users think?


Zach Adorno: Dog Dot Cat is amazing. I’ve had multiple dog walkers in my life and Magic (the walker/owner) is the best. When we first moved back to DC, she spent a lot of time with us working with our nervous dog to befriend and calm her—now our dog’s tail starts wagging when she gets to go on walks! Magic takes both our dogs (a 10 year old and a 3 year old) on walks 2-3 days a week in NoMa, and they get to spend time with other furry friends (great for socializing). They love her and she clearly has a passion for animals. We highly recommend Dog Dot Cat.
Response: Thank you, Zach! It has been so nice to see R & R's progress over these past months. Glad to be working with you all!

Bronwen Rice: Dog Dot Cat have been providing our cat care for 4 years, ever since we moved to the Trinidad neighborhood in DC. They are super organized, professional, and easy to schedule with. When one of our cats had a serious medical condition they were able to handle the medication and relieve some of our anxiety leaving a sick animal at home. They have even helped us out in a pinch when we accidentally locked ourselves out of the house! Having a trusted pet sitter definitely helps take the stress out of travel, and we are so grateful to have found a dependable company like Dog Dot Cat here in our neighborhood. Highly recommended!
Response: Thank you Bronwen! Happy to be of support!

Joe James: Magic and Diane have been trusted caretakers for three generations of pets in my household as a dog walker and sitter and cat sitter. They are reliable, trustworthy and their genuine love and concern for animals is very apparent. I very highly recommend them!
Response: Thank you, Joe. So glad to be of support to you and all of your fur kids over the years.

J: Magic and Diana are wonderful! For 5 years, my dog has enjoyed her daily, mid-day walks with the pack. The pack walks are great because in addition stretching her legs and taking care of business, my dog gets to socialize with other pups. I love that after each walk, Magic and Diana provide a report on where the pack went that day and any notable events so I never have to wonder how things went.
Response: Thank you, Julie! It's a pleasure having Lou on walks and seeing her and friends take off on their walking journeys.

Justin Antos: Dog Dot Cat has taken are of our cat for over a year now, and they are reliable and great. Website makes it super-easy to request and manage visit schedule, payment is easy. Bonus pictures of your pet while you're away!
Response: Thank you, Justin!

Rasha Elass: For several years now I have relied on Dog Dot Cat Pet Care to look after my two cats located in the Capitol Hill area anytime I travel. I can rest easy while I'm gone knowing that the team at Dog Dot Cat are making sure my fur babies are well fed and comfortable at home, and I love that they send me photos every day with a progress report that puts my mind at ease. I highly recommend this service and I will continue to use them.
Response: Thank you Rasha! It is always enjoyable visiting your fur children. They are so sweet and endearing. We are glad that through our updates you are rest assured and can enjoy your travels having that peace of mind. Happy New Year!

James Knudsen: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Reliability, Responsiveness, ValueDiana and magic are awesome. Our dog is difficult to work - I completely trust both magic and Diana with my dog. Further, it’s very easy to schedule our daily walks. Highly recommend.
Response: Thank you, James! It's a pleasure working with you each week and walking Emelia.

Beth Millemann: Diana and Magic are the absolute best pet-carers I can imagine! They have done both day- and over-night visits with our cat for years, and they’ve never been anything less than 100% reliable, helpful and engaged in their care-giving. They’ve been with our cat through periods of illness when they’ve had to administer medicine to him, and through his younger days of taking off on adventures! They’ve covered cat care from a day to a few weeks. I trust Diana and Magic completely to take great care of my cat and also my home as they come and go. I could not recommend them more highly!
Response: Thanks so much, Beth! It is always a pleasure caring for Taran, treasuring the sanctuary and function your home provides, and getting to know you and your family over the years.

Matthew Kloss: Dog dot cat came highly recommended to us from a friend. After going through several pet sitters and dog walkers on Rover, we finally found someone who cares for our bud-buds the way we do. Since we moved to Capital Hill, Magic has walked our dogs and provided boarding services. Our dogs are always excited to see her, she sends great pics, and she keeps us updated on anything important from their time with her. Both of my dogs can be a little anxious – It makes me feel better that when they spend time with Magic they are getting the love and attention they need. I have had dogs for 30+ years and highly recommend dog dot cat!
Response: Thank you, Matt! It has been satisfying to work towards the goals of bringing stability to Arthur and Abby's weekly dog routine, and seeing progressions in their terrier and hound natures within the urban environment.

Erich H: When we moved from Capitol Hill to Hillcrest, we did not expect to find a dog walker easily, east of the river. However, Dog Dot Cat not only walks our dog here for over seven years now, they also take great care of our cats when we're away, including administrating medicine for one cat. Of the many businesses we use, Dog Dot Cat is the best, the most reliable, the most professional, and the most fulfilling. Absolutely recommended for dog walking, cat sitting, cat / dog medicines, short trips, long trips, and daily visits.
Response: Thanks so much, Erich! It is a pleasure coming your way to visit your fur kids. They are a wonderful group, always hospitable hosts. We always enjoy a fun time together!

UnderDogs Pet Care: what do users think?


Natalia Johnson: We have been using UnderDogs for almost five years now and could not be happier with their services. It offers such peace of mind to know how well UnderDogs operates and cares for their furry charges. They are reliable, responsive and most importantly, trustworthy. Our primary walker (Thomas) and the rest of the team have been patient, kind and caring with both dogs that each have had their unique quirks. UnderDogs has been amazing throughout the pandemic as well and we continued walks throughout because the consistency and socialization they offer for our dog is so important. If you're looking for a stable, reliable and consistent dog walking service, I would not hesitate to hire UnderDogs. Love you, UnderDogs team!
Response: What a heartfelt message! You have been such an amazing client, and truly a pleasure to work with. Were it not for clients like you, we might not have made it through the pandemic. Its such an inspiration to all of us to keep pushing on and we could not be more excited to be there for you guys in the future!

Peter Larson: You will not find better dog walkers, or better humans, in NW DC! These folks set the bar high and then raise it higher. Underdogs have walked our two dogs for the past five years. When we moved from U Street to Park View, we were so happy that Greg and company could continue walking them. Every walker that we have worked with at Underdogs has been professional, punctual, responsive, and most important of all extremely loving toward our dogs! This is a small business that we are so proud to support. Throughout COVID, they have been steadfast. When we were stuck working from home, it was a joy to hand the dogs off each day and have a socially distanced chat. If you’re getting ready to go back to the office, definitely contact Underdogs. They will go above and beyond for your dogs every day.

Johanna Schmidt: I am grateful to Underdogs for all the services they provided for my dog. They were kind, responsive, and able to help me ensure he had the best quality of life possible during my work schedule. I have never had any issues, and everyone is a delight to work with. Even more importantly, if I ever needed last minute services, they were easy to book, and I always knew they would be able to ensure my pup was taken care of. We are sad to be moving and therefore no longer be able to work with them !
Response: Your kind words mean the world to us! Ollie has been a joy for us to work with and he will be missed! You've been an amazing client and we're so thrilled we were able to be of service for as long we we were!

Chelsea Hart: UnderDogs dog walking is truly wonderful, I'd recommend to anybody looking for a reliable and trustworthy dog walker in DC. Thomas was great at taking the time to get to know my dog and very communicative. He was very knowledgeable about how to handle dogs in the pack to make sure everything went well. Thomas, Greg, and the UnderDogs team have set high expectations for any future dog walkers!
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. We will miss you and Peanut so much! You both have been a real pleasure to work with!

Jessica Geller: Greg and his team have been walking our pup, Sammie, for almost 6 years. Not only Is UnderDogs very reliable (they have never missed a scheduled walk), but perhaps more importantly, they are incredibly kind and loving to our furry family member. They are very responsive, communicative, and I always feel confident that Sammie is safe and happy on her walks!
Response: You guys have been stalwart clients over the last half decade, and we're so grateful for your continued patronage during this crazy time (Covid-19)! You guys and Sammie are fabulous!

Michael Engel: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Reliability, ValueGreg is wonderful with our dog! We starting utilizing Greg back in July of 2021 for our ~75 lb very energetic goldendoodle. Could not ask for a better dog walker - he is always on time, our dog loves him, and he is also a great guy to work with in general! Highly recommend!!
Response: You guys are fantastic and I could not enjoy my walks with Luca more!! What a sweetie pie!!

Olivia Gusman: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Reliability, Responsiveness, ValueThe folks at UnderDogs are the best! Greg has always been so responsive and kind with any inquiries I've had regarding my account/service. Grace is my dog's favorite person. This business is such a gem. Please support them! Best dog walkers in DC!
Response: This is just so kind, thank you! It's really heartwarming to know that something I started over a decade ago is still going strong and that we're still able to make a difference in the lives our clients, both two and four legged. I could not be luckier to have co-workers, like Grace, that are so fantastic! You have been an amazing client and your patronage during a global pandemic is so appreciated.

Jes Waddell: Positive: ReliabilityUnderDogs is the BEST dog walking service I've used in the city. They really care about your dog as if they are their own. One great thing about retaining them through my working from home was getting to hear my pups excitement each day when they arrived. Cannot recommend them (esp Thomas) enough!
Response: Toby is the sweetest dog! Its always a pleasure!

Riley Greene: I love Underdogs!!! Their service is thorough and reliable, their prices are reasonable, and it's clear how much the team loves and understands animals. Our pup Dewey always comes home with a smile on his face, and I appreciate that he gets some energy out in the afternoon!
Response: Dewey is SUCH a joy! It's always a pleasure to see his shining face. He's so well adjusted and such a happy camper it makes our job a that much more fun!

Crystal Hahn: I've been using UnderDogs for about 5 years. We've had the same amazing walker (Thomas). The consistency and trust is unparalleled to other companies. Greg and the other managers have also been super easy to communicate with. Knowing that I can trust my keys and most of all, my dog, with UnderDogs and Thomas, has been a blessing!
Response: You and Tate are the best! We're better dog walkers because of great clients like you!

Two Tails DC: what do users think?


stacy zimmerman: Lara at Two Tails takes exceptional care of my elderly cat. I always know Stella is in great hands with her. Lara has been flexible and accommodating when my timing for travel changed mid-trip due to flight delays etc which I especially appreciate. And she loves my girl, so I don’t have any anxiety about how she’s doing while I’m gone. Highly recommend!

Nic Martinez: Lara was perfect in every way. My wife and I were leaving town to get married and would need someone to look after our cat for two weeks. We reached out to Lara through a referral from another cat-sitter and within a few days we were able to schedule a meet-and-greet to get to know each other and so Lara could meet our cat and get to know her special needs and quirks! For anyone in the neighborhood looking for pet-care services, Two Tails is the way to go! We received pictures and videos of our cat during our vacation, which was always a special treat to see that she was doing okay while we were gone. Lara went above and beyond in care and I would highly recommend Two Tails.

Lonnie Shekhtman: I'd like to preface this by noting that I'm a paranoid dog mom who can't bear to think of her dog in any bit of discomfort. This is why I have a hard time with dog walkers or daycares or ... god forbid, boarding. All I can say is, Lara is a blessing. The moment I met her and heard her philosophy on dog care, I was in love. I bet she cares about dogs more than their owners do in some cases. She is super professional, reliable, and trustworthy. Don't even consider anyone else.

Erin Taylor: We can't say enough about Lara--she is responsible, professional and Milo LOVES her. Lara has been walking Milo since he was a puppy and we trust her implicitly. Lara has not only helped our pandemic puppy expand his horizons, she offers great advice and genuinely cares about making sure all the dogs she works with get good exercise, socialization, potty breaks, and stay safe in all weather.

Colleen Long: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Reliability, Responsiveness, ValueI highly recommend Two Tails. Lara is wonderful. She took great care of our high-needs cat Logan James for two weeks and was responsive, thoughtful and caring. He was happy and healthy when we got back and our plants were still alive, too. Highly highly recommended!

Leslie Hall: Lara is the best! She was so helpful with our dog and went above and beyond to help us make sure we had the right gear to make sure she walked well on leash. Our dog loved Lara (and she didn't like many people) and we know that Lara cared for her too. It was nice to know that when our dog wasn't with us, she was with someone who treated her so well. When we chose to adopt a second dog, Lara helped us with the qualities that would ensure we found the perfect match. And she was spot on! Our new dog fit in very well with our particularly, sassy old lady. We really appreciated the updates after walks and the photos were so so good!

Lauren Dennis: My first impression of Lara was that she loves animals and loves her job! I have two very shy, semi feral cats. Much to my surprise and delight, Lara had them eating out of her hand (literally) by the time her 11 days of caring for them ended. I loved getting the daily pics and video clips along with progress reports. It was such a comfort knowing she was taking care of them while I was away. I highly recommend two tails DC and Lara.

Allison Walker: Even though my partner and I have been working from home during the pandemic, we realized our energetic corgi, Fudge, would benefit from pack walks a couple of times a week. Our neighbor referred us to Lara and we cannot adequately express how much we value her. She is reliable, responsive, knowledgeable, friendly, and caring and Fudge ADORES her, so much so that she drags us down the street to Lara's house when we walk her just in case Lara happens to be outside. We haven't boarded Fudge with Lara yet, but plan to in the future and know that Lara will love Fudge as if she was her own. We enthusiastically recommend Two Tails DC for all of your pet care needs!

Isabella Shaulis: I HIGHLY recommend Two Tails DC. This company was recommended to me by another pet sitting service who was unable to accommodate my last minute request for a cat sitter. I messaged Lara with an urgent, very last minute inquiry for a cat sitter. She responded promptly and went above and beyond to make time for me. Lara is incredibly professional, kind, and responsive. She has watched my cat twice now and always provides me with updates, photos, and any other developments with my cat! I feel so reassured knowing Lara is watching my cat Missy and I don't think I would trust anyone else to do the job after having such amazing service from Two Tails DC! I cannot recommend Two Tails enough!! Thank you Lara and Two Tails DC!

Michele Johnson: My golden retriever Casey arrived at my house in June 2008 as a one-year old foster through a breed-specific rescue. I hired Lara to be his midday walker before he even arrived at my house! Casey passed away in June 2020. Through those twelve years, Lara was a constant in his life. Lara made sure he was well exercised, socialized, and most of all— loved. Lara gave great advice to maintain Casey’s health and general well-being. Lara also boarded Casey. Thanks to Lara’s care and consistency, Casey was a successful PAL dog, volunteering at the Armed Forces Retirement Home and a DC public library. I appreciated that she was able to match him with other dogs, to maximize his walking experience. Casey loved Lara as his special aunt. Highly recommend Lara!

Wanderpups Dog Walking and Pet sitting: what do users think?


Sam Carter: I reached out to Wanderpups immediately after adopting my dog, so he could get into a routine and get over his aversion to strangers, and they've always been phenomenal. His dog walker, Dany, is fantastic about communicating and giving me updates about how my pup did on his walk. Whenever issues have arisen, Melonie (the owner) has always communicated quickly and worked with me to figure it out. If you live on Capitol Hill and are looking for a dependable, professional dog walking service that will care as much about your pup as you do, Wanderpups should be at the top of your list.

Candice Frost: Positive: Professionalism, Reliability, ResponsivenessBest dog walking company I've worked with in D.C. They absolutely provide services at the right time with people who truly love dogs. Their walkers are considerate and kind.

Soph B: Wanderpups is amazing. They've been walking my dogs for at least four years now and have always been reliable professional and accessible. They are woman and veteran owned by Melonie who also lives in the Capitol Hill area. I have two large dogs, an akita and an alaskan malamute mix. My malamute is thirteen now and wears a limb replacement accessory. They have always taken the time to fit his accessory correctly so he can walk, they send me photos consistently of my pups. They walk my dogs individually, not with a 'pack' of multiple dogs, and always give them the attention and care they need. Highly recommend them.

Lindsey Gardner: The Wanderpups team is amazing! I have used their services for daily dog walking and overnight care. I have a senior dog and they are amazingly patient and caring with him and his health needs. They are incredibly reliable, rain or shine. They give great reports and photos after each walk, which give me so much comfort knowing my dog is cared for while I’m at work. Wanderpups uses consistent walkers, which is great so my dog can build a trusting bond with them. I would recommend their services to anyone looking for reliable, loving care for their pets.

Ryan Linthicum: We love Wanderpups! For almost four years we've used Wanderpups since our first dog was a puppy. Everyone is incredibly reliable and so sweet with our dogs. We really feel apart of a community of dogs and dog parents. Thank you for everything!

Allison Evron: Wanderpups has been amazing to my dog and I. I couldn’t recommend them more. They have been walking my dog for almost a year and a half, since my dog was 4 months old. I work full time so having a puppy home alone was hard but Wanderpups helped tremendously! They are so sweet and loving to my pup and she adores her walker. My pup has a lot of allergies and in the beginning she would get sick a lot. I could call Wanderpups same day and ask them to check in on my pup while I was at work and I would have the peace of mind. Thank you for all you do Wanderpups!

Kathryn Beard: Wanderpups is wonderful! Mel and the entire team are great. My dog has special needs in terms of where she can and can't walk and everyone at Wanderpups was so accommodating. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Super easy to schedule, very reliable and easy to communicate with. My favorite part of my day was getting the pics of my dog on her walk.

Jason Snyder: Absolutely a wonderful experience. Been using Wanderpups for almost a month and it's been nothing short of exceptional. From the owner, to the office staff, to our dog walker....all top notch service. My five month French bulldog and absolutely loves his time on his midday walks. Easy booking, easy invoicing, and always great photos and updates on the walks. My highest recommendation and will be using them for a long time.

Becca Lloyd: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Reliability, Responsiveness, ValueWanderpups is Woman and Veteran owned. Their dog walkers take special care to get to know your pups and their quirks. My rescue beagle, Jake has made great improvements with his reactive behavior since doing regular pack walks with Supe amd Wanderpups. Highly recommend Wanderpups for your local dog walking services.

Joseph S: Our experience with Wanderpups has been great. Mel first started walking our dog a few years ago and now she has been doing cat check-ins for us when we're away from the house for more than a couple of days. Her communication is great, very dependable, and she has been able to accommodate short notice requests as well. We always know that our cats get the attention and care they need when we are gone. Five stars, for sure!

Patriotic Paws Dog Walking: what do users think?


Nam Duong: Patriotic Pet Care was great!! We used their services to take care of our Fur-baby Einstein during our wedding day as we wanted him to be a part of the wedding Festivities. Kim and Barbara were very accommodating to our needs and request. The initial meeting began with a consultation and explanation of how things worked and what to expect during the day of. Barbara was able to pick up Einstein from our home, bring him to the venue, and watch him while we took wedding pictures with him. She took care of him in between during our wedding related obligations, and continued to watch Einstein while he participated during the cocktail hour festivities. Afterwards, Barbara let us say goodbye to Einstein before she took him back to our home, not before waling him and making sure he was taken care of. Price-wise, they were very reasonable for the wedding services and looking after our dog. Would absolutely recommend Patriotic Pet Care if you’re looking to have your pet as part of your special day!
Response: Thanks Nam! I hope you, Beth, and Einstein are doing well!

Melissa: While I was out of town for only a few days, the owner of this company changed my cat's litter without asking me to a different, heavily scented brand. As most cat owners know, this change could have caused my cat to have an allergic reaction or may have stopped my cat from using the litter box entirely. When I got home and discovered what happened, I emailed her to explain these potential repercussions, and she didn't respond. Most recently, my regular pet sitter, whom I acquired through this company, moved away without telling me. She took my apartment building's keys with her and has not responded to my email requests to return them to me. Aside from the security concerns I have now, my building charges a substantial fee for providing duplicate keys. In the past, I'd been told that my keys were safe and secure in the care of the pet sitting company and its pet sitters. When I emailed the owner about this, she told me that she had no control over what this person does. Each response to my emails about this problem was minimal and curt, which was increasingly frustrating. I need to have my keys returned to me, or I should be reimbursed for the cost of them being lost. The owner is refusing to reimburse the key fee.
Response: Melissa was a client of Jule's Pet Sitting. When I acquired Jule's Pet Sitting many of the sitters took their clients and went off on their own. They saw it as an opportunity for financial gain and I let them go as they are not a fit for my team. This is what happened with Melissa's sitter. In acquiring the business I was not required to enter into any sitter or client agreement that the previous owner Jule had entered into. Melissa and I did not enter into a client/sitter agreement. Melissa's sitter and I did not enter into an employment agreement so this sitter was not on my team. Melissa was working with someone who I was not. Melissa was scheduling directly with her sitter from Jule's and not through me or my company. My clients schedule through me. Melissa only reached out to me after she had problems getting a hold of her sitter. She threatened to leave bad reviews and bring down my rating on review sites if I didn't reimburse her $50 key fee. I will not be bullied into paying for someone who is not with my company. I go to great lengths for my clients and communicate with them all hours of the day. I can provide references to anyone interested in hearing from my actual clients.

Kim R: I have two Jack Russel Terriers. They have a ton of energy so I had to hire a dog walker about a year ago. I'm lucky in that the boys liked Kim when they met and they have been walking together ever since. I recommend her and her team for dog walks.
Response: Thanks so much Anna!

Hannah Davis: I always use Patriotic Pet Care when I need someone to watch my cat Ollie. I've had a few of their sitters watch him for a few days at a time and he's always happy and healthy when I return. They really love animals.
Response: Thank you so much!

Marla Ann: They took great care of my senior cat Libby when I went out of town. I received updates with pictures because I'm a worrier! I would use them again.
Response: Thank you so much! We hope to see her again soon!

MD. Nursari Hasan Sheham: Back in December I hired Kim to walk my goldendoodle and everything has been going great since!
Response: Thanks so much! Cookie is doing great on her walks!

Wagamuffin Pet Care: what do users think?


Louise B: Literally THE BEST! DC has a variety of good pet care providers to choose from - but Wagamuffin SETS the standard for others follow. Wagamuffin’s all-star team, impeccable level of care and unapologetically pet-centric philosophy makes them exceptional. We’ve been customers for almost 7 years; both our pooches adore their Wagamuffin pack. I think given half a chance, both dogs would gladly tell you that their walker Joey, is their favourite human.

Allyson Eno: I have been using Wagamuffin since 2016 when I got my puppy, Wellington. They have been the ONLY dog walkers we have had and truly they have helped me raise him. He loves them and they love him. I can't say enough good things about the company and the amazing walkers.

Chris K: Great dog walkers! Very reliable and easy to work with. Love getting photos every so often of our dog on walks with his dog buddies.

Stacey A Herndon: The team from Wagamuffin is awesome with my pups!! I know I can trust them when I am not home!!

Erin Crossett: Wagamuffin is the best! They're extremely responsive and accommodating. Our dog loves Joey, who has been so sweet with her and helped her acclimate to other dogs on walks. If you need a dogwalker, look no further!

Noah Kowalski: We have been using Wagamuffin for almost a year for regular walks for our 9.5 year old dog after moving to 16th Street Heights/Petworth. Our regular walker Ally is fantastic and goes above and beyond in taking care of our old guy as well as providing stellar pictures and updates. Communication is prompt, updates are clearly communicated, and you can tell these folks truly care about your pets as if they are in their own family. Highly recommend!

R F: Fantastic service. Prompt responses when last minute needs/changes. My big pup loves his buddies at Wagamuffin Pet Care. They love fur babies and it shows!

P B: I travel pretty frequently for work and I’ve been using Wagamuffin to take care of my two cats for many years now. They’re great! Appreciate the communication from them while I’m gone and especially the app, which lets you order the type and frequency of care you need, and to change details on the fly as needed. It also notifies you when someone’s been there that day. And every couple days, the woman who feeds them is nice enough to send me a couple photos, which is reassuring :) Highly recommend them!

Eliza Cava: Great walkers, excellent communication, competitive prices.

DC Dog Sitting: what do users think?


Alice Games: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Reliability, Responsiveness, ValueJonathan is a life saver! He is great with my rambunctious puppy and always prompt and professional. I highly recommend his services.

Macy Doverspike: Jonathan is the absolute best! Both of our rescue dogs instantly adored him. We adopted our newest rescue, 2 year old, Stanley in October after he came into the rescue as an abuse/neglect case. Although he is the sweetest boy, he suffers from severe separation anxiety and other behavioral issues as a result of his previous neglect. We are currently doing an extensive training program to help him overcome his anxiety and our trainer, Toni, recommended Jonathan for us so we could introduce another friend into Stanley’s life and also to give us a break. Jonathan has worked closely with Toni and even has an anxious dog of his own so he is very comfortable handling our anxious and also rambunctious boy. I am disabled and have an immunodeficiency so I have been isolating at home for the duration of COVID and Jonathan has been so understanding and takes all the precautions when he is here. He has given my husband and I some much needed relief and a break after a very hard first few months with our new baby boy. Stanley is not an easy case at all but Jonathan is great with him and is not phased by any of the extra work he requires. My 9 year old pit bull service dog, Addie, loves Jonathan so much that she mopes around when she knows he’s downstairs with her brother so Jonathan always makes sure to spend some special time with just her every time he’s here. If you want someone who will not only love your dog but also does an amazing job at understanding their unique needs and making sure they are all met, then Jonathan is the perfect dog sitter and walker for your fur babies too. We really cannot recommend him enough!

Posh Pets: what do users think?


Tabatha S: Posh Pets has been by far my best experience in the NOVA area. I was scrambling to find a reliable sitter in a short window and Posh Pets came through and I haven't looked back since. The owner personally reached out to ensure my cat had the care she needed while I was away. I was able to meet the owner and additional sitter even with the time crunch which gave me the peace of mind I needed to leave my cat at home. It's clear that everyone at Posh Pets really cares about animals and also their owners. They've been incredibly accommodating with my sporadic travel schedule. My older cat has a lot of medical issues and doesn't play well with others. That said, my cat is always mellow and happy when I return. She loves the Posh Pets sitters and will cuddle with them (she normally does not take well to others!!)! They even brought her a small gift for the holidays (which she loved)! I get regular updates and if my cat needs additional assistance, Posh Pets has worked with me to adjust her medication as needed while I'm away. Their expertise is terrific - they have clearly worked with all manner of animals at varying ages. Kimberly was able to provide some insight on my cat's behavior that I was able to bring to the vet to start additional treatment. I strongly recommend Posh Pets to anyone looking for a reliable, responsible, kind and friendly pet service. Your pets are in good hands with Kimberly and the team at Posh Pets.
Response: Aww thank you so much for the review. Your words truly mean so much. We absolutely adore Snickers and love the time we spend with her. ❤️ We are so happy to know that our services give you peace of mind when you travel. We know how important this is, especially when it comes to older pets who need medication. Thank you again so very much for the kind words. It’s a pleasure and an honor to care for your kitty!

Danielle Kle Richert: Posh Pets has been truly amazing!! I have a 16-year-old cat named Foxy and I'm very particular about who comes in to take care of her while I'm away. The team at Posh Pets has always been very responsive and caring towards her, they know exactly what her routine is and what her favorite playtime activities are (yes, she still chases a laser at 16!). I get daily updates on how she's doing along with pictures or videos, and it always puts me at ease to see how happy and playful she is with her "new friend!" The biggest testament is when I come home... when I walk in the door, she is always happy as a clam, like she hardly even missed me which is GREAT!! With other cat sitters I've had she has been scared and runs to hide as I come home, but with Posh Pets she is perfectly happy and content. It truly puts me at ease knowing that she's in such good hands when I go away. Foxy always gets exceptional care from her friends at Posh Pets, I cannot recommend them enough!
Response: Thank you so much for your review, Danielle! We love Foxy and she's such an amazing member of the Posh Pets family! We love how comfortable she is with us and it makes us truly happy that you are at ease knowing she's in good hands.

Kristen Svarczkopf: Posh Pets has been amazing for me and my dog Echo. The walkers give detailed reports of her daily 45 minute walks and take cute pictures so I know exactly what she was up to that day. She always comes home happy and exercised. They went above and beyond to get a walker on short notice when my husband dislocated his shoulder and we were at the hospital. I trust them completely with my dog and enthusiastically recommend their services!
Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful words, Kristen! It’s been an absolute joy being part of Echo’s life and we appreciate you entrusting us with her care. ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

Corina Freitas: I found Poshpetality after moving to Alexandria and having a somewhat terrible experience with my first dog walker. My Bounty is almost 14 years old and I have always found excellent dog walking companies everywhere we moved, that I stayed with for years! My last one crashed and burned quickly... but Poshpetality has the makings of a great business. The owners are extremely versed in hospitality and the attention to details shines through! Bounty is very happy and well taken care of the times he needs. Medications, overnight stays, last minute cancellations and bookings... Poshpetality is able to take my crazy life in strides and go with it! I am very at peace with them caring for my furry baby.
Response: Thank you so much, Corina! We absolutely adore Bounty and are so happy that he is part of the Posh Pets family. ❤️ He’s a special guy for sure and we love our visits with him. Thank you so much for your kind words and for placing your trust in Posh Pets.

Kat C: If you're considering a pet sitting service, look no further - and get on the books with Posh Pets immediately - these guys will be fully booked with clients soon if they aren't already! They 100% earned the Washingtonian award, so word is getting out - they are some of the best in the biz around town - and service remains consistently top notch. Chris and Kimberly are hands-on business owners who treat you and your pets like members of their own family. They start off with a personal and thorough consultation/meet-and-greet with your furry friends, including introducing you in-person to the walker/care-taker for your pets. You immediately feel at ease with this type of personal attention. My pup has recently been diagnosed with cancer, and they've taken the utmost care in staying abridged of his situation and accommodating his services as his condition changes. They've been wonderfully flexible in scheduling appointments (the portal is very user friendly) and respond immediately to any notes or questions you send. The staff they employ are trustworthy, caring, and go above and beyond. Send a big shout-out to Mehtap and Tyler, who have treated my pets with the best care, always sending thorough reports, documentation, and pictures. Mehtap identified some changes in Rooney's walking habits that were key in reporting to the vet when they added up to declining health/cancer diagnosis. If that isn't attention to detail, I don't know what is! Tyler has recently started walking Rooney and has paid careful attention to Rooney's changing needs post-chemo. He even took initiative to help change Rooney's doggy diaper and reported on Rooney's eating habits, and confirmed he received medication. Additionally, he's started helping him up stairs with a lift harness and lets me know with each report how Rooney did on his walk/on stairs, etc. I'm not sure how I would have returned to the office two days a week without knowing my pets were in such good hands. I can't thank Posh Pets enough.
Response: Kat, wow, thank you SO, SO much for this amazing review. We are truly humbled and grateful. We absolutely love what we do as do every single one of our wonderful team members. Tyler and Mehtap are AMAZING! They truly love Rooney and Lemieux as if they were their own, as do we. Thank you so much for placing your trust in Posh Pets and welcoming us into your lives. ❤️

Sara Bruce: We couldn’t be happier with choosing Posh to care for our dogs. They are incredibly diligent and accommodating to every request we send their way. From the very first visit they’ve taken detailed notes on every interaction with our pets. They know our dogs well and truly care about their well being. We are so thankful to have found them.
Response: Thank you so much, Sara. We truly appreciate the kind words and love being part of Suki and Charlie’s lives. ❤️ Thank you so much for entrusting us with their care!!!

Jeff Villani: From the very first conversation inquiring about their services, Posh Pets has been fantastic! They have a great app and make booking/cancelling or editing visits so easy! They are extremely reliable and help ease the pet into their routine with a Posh Pet expert. We could not be happier with Posh Pets!
Response: Thank you SO much for your kind words, Jeff. We absolutely adore Luna and are so grateful to be part of her life. Thank you so much for trusting Posh Pets with her care. ❤️

Elise Young: Posh Pets is by far the best dog-walking experience we've had since we adopted our puppy over the summer! They are incredibly responsive, trustworthy, and reliable. One of the owners of the company came with our walker to meet our pup at our initial consultation, and being able to meet and chat with both the owner and walker instilled so much confidence! It is evident that everyone at this company loves animals and is highly responsible and caring! Our daily walker is always on-time -- sometimes coming early to spend extra time -- and is so friendly. She gives us very detailed and friendly readouts and is willing to work with us on training commands to give our pup consistency. We are so thankful that we found Posh Pets. We love our walker as well as the owners, who are so friendly, conscientious, and accommodating! With Posh Pets, you get much, much more than what you pay for!
Response: Thank you so much for your incredibly kind words, Elise! We adore Freya and are so blessed to have her as part of the Posh Pets family!! We are also so blessed to have such a wonderful team and walkers like Freya's who LOVE what they do and truly do adore the pups they walk as if they were their own. Thank you so much again for the wonderful review. 💕

Sami C: Chris and Kimberly and their whole team are fantastic!! They’ve been my walkers for over a year, and have done cat visits too when I traveled. My dog absolutely adores them, and even though I only pay for dog walks, their walkers always make sure to give lots of love and attention to my cat too during every visit. I feel very comfortable with them coming to my house when I’m not home—way more so than I ever felt with Wag or Rover. They are a small, close-knit team, and as their successful company grew, if they ever had a new walker come on board to walk my pup (which wasn’t often, they were very consistent with my dog’s walker), I always had the opportunity to meet them first if I wanted. I really can’t recommend this company enough, I always feel safe knowing my kiddos are in great hands!!
Response: Thank you so much for the kind words, Sami!! We absolutely ADORE Rowdy and Charlie and have loved being part of their lives. Truly cannot thank you enough for entrusting Posh Pets with their care. They are an absolute joy! ❤️

AF Flem: Kim and Posh Pets took care of my two cats this week. Kim was good with my shy cats, knowing not to push too hard and letting them decide when they were ready to make friends. Posh Pets uses an app which notifies you when the sitter arrives. After each visit the sitter puts a report on the app detailing everything that happened on the visit, including photos. I also like the fact they are bonded and insured. I felt so comfortable knowing exactly what was going on. I will definitely use Posh Pets again in the future
Response: Thank you so much for the kind words, Ann! We loved taking care of Grace and Riley. We just know Riley will warm up in her own time and come to enjoy playing with us just like Grace does.

City Dogs Daycare: what do users think?


Laura Vincent: I love bringing my dogs to citydogs for doggy daycare. They come home happy and dog tired. I love reading my daily report cards, so cute :) The staff are friendly with me and observant of my pups’ needs. For example, my dogs are in between a big dog and a small dog size. Ginsy is confident and can play with any sized dog, the David is beta and submits easily to bigger dogs, but they are bonded. One day, David wasn’t having as much fun in the big dog room. So, the staff moved them both to the small dog room to see if that was more enjoyable. It was! Since then, both my pups get the most out of their visits and are always excited to go back. The one downside is that the facility is indoors and the floors are tile. It’s inevitable their paws will be a little stinky when they get home. But you can’t blame city dogs for that! This is very common for doggy daycares in the city; It comes with the territory. I recommend using “Scrubby rinse free shampoo mittens” with oatmeal waterless shampoo or oatmeal wipes. It’s a great alternative to a full bath that will still get them clean. If it’s time for your dog to get a bath, city dogs has bathing services that are affordable. And they schedule the bath around when you will pick your pup up, so they are fresh and clean when you arrive.

MICHELLE MARSHALL: This is my first dog and her first grooming experience. I was very excited for her. However, when I got home to see her I cried. She looked horrible. All her beautiful fir on her face was gone. Her hair was frizzy, dry and wild. The cut looked very unfinished and uneven even though all we asked for was a trim. The groomer cut too close on her nose and created a cut/irritation. She’s been scratching at it ever since. Not to mention one of her paws is still sharp. I’m not only dissatisfied but I feel guilty for Putting her through this. I’ve wasted money before and can get over that but my baby is looking bad right now. I haven’t gone there to complain or argue…. Even though I’m angry and sad. What’s done is done. She will not be returning for a grooming experience. I’ve seen better work at petco. If you believe me check out the before & after pics……

Natalie Bohnet: Positive: Reliability, ValueMy energetic beagle mix Pablo goes into City Dogs daycare very enthusiastically. He comes home tired & happy. Buying the pass makes it reasonably priced. I love the photos on the door welcoming the new dogs! Great place!
Response: Hi Natalie, Pablo loves to play with his friends Cali and Lucas when he visits. They always have a blast together. Thanks for choosing up to spend time with Pablo. Love, City Dogs

Haddassah Goldberg: I have been considering giving City Dogs a try because we recently moved to the neighborhood and they’re so close to my home, but I walked by this afternoon and they had their front door propped wide open. My dog is a runner, and I’m sure he’s not the only dog who would make a break for it if he made it to the lobby. I will be looking elsewhere because this left an awful taste in my mouth.
Response: Hi Haddassah, if your dog is a master at opening doors, we do appreciate that you haven’t brought him to try our services. We share and understand your concern for dog safety, but we do have mitigations in place on occasions where we’re bringing in some fresh air. Please come take a look inside sometime. We consider our dog customers and their human parents like family, and we appreciate the chance to talk through concerns with customers before posting a review. After our front door, 4 additional doors separate our play rooms from the outside. Our play areas are on the lower level and we have two doors in the stairwell and two doors on each playroom. We would never encourage a customer to bring their dog if it’s not a good environment for them, and we won’t hesitate to let you know. So please, come inside sometime and check it out for yourself sometime.

Amanda Blake: Positive: Professionalism, Reliability, ValueMy pup had such a good time at City Dogs!! I love how they put her photo out front the first day to welcome her and sent videos of her in her "report card." I was able to see the facilities before I dropped her off, and everyone was very kind and clearly loved dogs. She's currently asleep, worn out from her super fun day. 10/10!

Jenelle Thomas: My furry kid’s first day was amazing! We felt so welcomed, especially seeing his personal ‘Welcome’ sign. The staff were patience, friendly and attentive, all the qualities my senior dog needs. I truly appreciated the video update of my pup- to see that he didn’t appear anxious and was very intrigued. I’m excited for my pup to join the City Dog family!
Response: Hi Jenelle, Thanks for the wonderful review. We're pleased to know you and Prince enjoys daycare here at City Dogs. Welcome to the CD pack! Love, City Dogs

Alison Griner: Took my dog to daycare, inside is clean and they keep your dog on leash until past several doors. It was her first time there, so she received a free bath, an adorable framed photo, and a detailed report card. Felt very welcome by the staff including posting a welcome poster of her on the door!

Colleen Turner: Positive: ProfessionalismI send my dog to City Dogs H St for grooming. The staff is so friendly and takes great care of him. He comes home clean and in a good mood, which says A LOT for a dog who doesn’t love a bath!

Traycie Powell: Voltaire always has the best time with his City Dog friends. He is exhausted by the time he gets home...which shows me he had a blast! I love all the pictures and videos the staff send when requested. Great hours for those of us who work long days. 🐾5 PAWS 🐾

Megan Bailey: I brought my dog there for the first time and put in specific instructions regarding my dog being sensitive and to go slow. I also gave instructions when I dropped him off. When I picked him up I asked how it went and they said great! He was cut shorter than I preferred but that was fine. I get my dog into the car and he is absolutely terrified. He growled at me several times when I tried to touch his tail or feet which has not happened before. I am not sure what they did to my dog but I would never recommend this place. As an FYI I also emailed them and it has been over a week with no response about this.
