We understand that selecting a suitable pet caregiver is one of the most important decisions a pet owner has to make. That is why, at Happy Hounds, we strive to make the experience for you and your pets as comfortable as possible. We are committed to taking care of your pets as we would our own.
This principle includes our commitment to observing your pet’s behavior during the visit and notifying you by phone of any apparent illness or something out of the ordinary. Our top-quality services include: mid-day dog walking, pet sitting, overnight in-house care and cat care.
Happy Hounds enjoys an excellent reputation for the professional pet care services we have been providing in the Arlington and Alexandria areas since October 2001. The reason for our success is our strong record of providing the same professional pet nanny on a daily basis while you are away from home. This permits your pet and the care provider to develop bond and long-lasting relationship.
We are fully licensed, bonded and insured, and are members of Pet Sitters International. To assure your pet’s safety and your satisfaction with our service, all caregivers must go through an extensive background check as well as the “Zeke, Pepper and Lily” test before being hired by Happy Hounds. Ask Kim to explain this test when you and your pet meet with her!
We are strictly a “one-on-one” dog walking service. This means that we walk dogs from one household at a time. If your dog needs to go to the dog park (the county provides a fenced-in playground) for recreation or other purposes we will be glad to work with you. Call us today at 703-587-4834.
