Boarding Your Dog in Washington D.C.

Adding a new furry family member is a really exciting time, but can make everyday scenarios harder. One of the most challenging aspects of having a pet is taking trips, whether for work or for fun.

The last thing you want to be worried about while on a fun vacation is how your pet is doing. It can be hard to find a place that you trust, that fits your budget, and provides the right level of care for your dog.

At Patrick’s Pet Care, we provide three different options to meet your budget and desired level of care.

Traditional Kennel

This option is most like a traditional boarding facility that is kennel drive. Your dog will spend some time in a comfortable and appropriately-sized kennel, for meals and while sleeping at night. The rest of the time, they will be free to roam, provided they socialize well with other dogs and aren’t destructive.

You can board your dog in our traditional kennel facility for short-term stays, long-term stays, and even monthly stays. You might think a month is a long time to board a dog, but many of our clients work for the State Department and the World Bank where long-term travel is a fact of life. We make sure their pets barely miss them while they are away.

Each day at the kennel, your dog will be treated with one peanut butter kong or chew toy, four outdoor walks, and regular socialization with our professional staff as well as with other dogs.

For an additional price, dogs can get a bath and nail trim so they look their best when you pick them up!

Dog BnB

We also have a slightly fancier option if you are looking for additional pampering for your dog. The Dog BnB is like a regular bed and breakfast, where the guest’s comfort is the top priority. Dogs that stay at the BnB get to roam in an “apartment” and are under constant supervision.

At the Dog BnB, guests will get one peanut butter kong or chew toy a day, four walks a day and regular socialization. Optionally, dogs can be taken on a fun Rock Creek Park Excursion! Overall it’s a much quieter and calm environment than the traditional facility where senior and less social dogs, in particular, can relax in peace, just like you when you’re at the beach.

One of the pros of boarding your pet with us is that you don’t need to worry about providing food dishes, bedding, or crates. We provide all of that. You just need to bring your dog, their food, and any needed medication. You may want to pack one of their favorite toys to enjoy.

We also provide daily email updates on your pet, starting the second day of your trip. For a small fee, you can even get a short video update included in your daily email.

In-Home Care

If your dog has strong personality quirks or gets upset or stressed when his or her environment changes, we also offer in-home overnight care that allows you to perfectly maintain your dog’s everyday routine while you are away.

At Patrick’s Pet Care, we know that it is hard to leave your pet with someone else, so we want you to feel confident that they are receiving the best care. Call us to today to set up a boarding reservation!
