    Woofies has a great special on specialicious rightnow for 3 20 minutes visits for $25! but today is the LAST day to buy...


    they have been walking my Beemer for 5 years and are the most reliable, caring company EVER. nothing but the highest praise for them!

    PS- I work for Northern Virginia MAgazine which owns specialicious.

    Woofies just watched my dog while we were on vacation for a week. They went above and beyond to care for him. We came back to a very happy dog. I would highly recommend them!!!

    I use Mommy and Me Pet Care. Sandi has very reasonable rates and really cares about the pets she takes care of. She also offers services like bringing in the mail, watering the plants, etc.

    I heard great things about Woofies. Stream Valley Vet Hospital recommends them.

    Our family has used Pick of the Litter Pet Care for YEARS! Erica is wonderful, responsible, and part of the family. Our 2 dogs love her (we have done middays and overnight pet sitting).

    Woofies has been walking our dog since February. They took care of our dog while we were on vacation. They picked him up and sent us txt message updates and photos of him almost daily. Honestly he looked like he was having a better time than we were! I highly recommend Woofies.

    We took off this weekend and woofies was taking care of our beemer friday.
    When they got to our house friday, the power was out. rather than leave him in our hotter by the minute house, since they had no idea when the power would be back,, they took him to another walkers home and kept him there until our power was on and sustained. that is the kind of caring service and attention and care they ALWAYS provide.
    Its invaluable and they have us as clients for life!!!

    We ended up going with Woofies, since I know who our dog walker is that helps! Thank you for all the recommendations.

    We use Pitter-Pat. Very nice, reasonable, professional. The Owner is Donna King and lives in Ashburn. She has helped us out many times. We will likely go back to 2x a week mid day walks soon due to work schedules.
