Whether you’re taking a few weeks off for vacation or will just be out of town for a day or two, Paw Pals Pet Sitting is here to love and take care of your pup anywhere in Northern Virginia.
Paw Pals provides a wide variety of personalized and loving in-your-home and out-of-home dog sitting services to keep your dogs happy and healthy while you’re away. We are a locally owned and operated business with a great team of fully vetted pet sitters and dog lovers at heart. Our dog sitting services are flexible and designed to help out dog owners who care deeply about their dogs and do not want them put into boarding or a kennel while they’re away.
Paw Pals Dog Sitters
Paw Pals sitters are highly trained and fully certified professionals who will guarantee the “Best Care for your Best Friend” in all of Northern Virginia. Each of our sitters will care for your dogs just as you would and will love your dogs as if they were our own—because each of them are puppy parents as well! We give your dogs the interaction, exercise, and love they crave while helping to keep them in their regular routines while you’re away.
Paw Pals is licensed, bonded, fully insured, and our sitters are 100% PetTech certified in Pet CPR and First Aid. For your convenience, we offer regular Vacation Visits (non-overnight), In-Home Overnight Dog & House Sitting, and our Bed & Biscuit service where your dog stays overnight at a Paw Pals pet sitter’s home. Each of our services can be paired with our House Sitting and Garden Watering service where our pet sitters look after your home while you’re away.
Paw Pals pet sitters love to care for and play with your dog while keeping them happy in their regular routines while you’re away. This helps minimize anxiety, stress, and loneliness for your dog, as well as keeping them stimulated at regular intervals. Vacation Visits are available from anywhere between 30-60 minutes depending on your preferences. Vacation Visits include walks, playtime attention and affection, brushing, treats, fresh food and water, cage cleaning (if needed), and medication administration. Our pet sitters are also able to take care of minor household tasks while you’re away to help secure your home and make it seem as if someone were home, like bringing in papers and mail, alternating lights, opening and closing blinds, and watering house plants.
For the wellbeing of your dogs, they will require at least 3 visits per day while you’re away. This keeps them happy, healthy, and stimulated to avoid any misbehavior or home damage. For more information on pricing for Vacation Visit services, check our Pet Sitting Rates and Prices page.
Overnight House & Dog Sitting
If you’re reluctant to leave your dogs alone at night, our sitters can come to your home and stay with your pets overnight with our Overnight House & Dog Sitting service. Overnight Dog Sitting includes a 30 minute walk for your dogs in the evening and in the morning, as well as walks, playtime, brushing, treats, fresh food and water, medication administration, and attention and love as if they were our own! In addition, our sitters will bring in all mail and papers, water your houseplants, open and close blinds, alternate lights, adjust thermostats and take out or bring in the trash and recycling. Our sitters are always respectful of and courteous toward your home, and will leave it at least as well as they found it—guaranteed.

Bed & Biscuit Overnight Dog Sitting
If you don’t want your best friend to be alone at night but prefer not to have a dog sitter stay in-house while you’re away, your well-behaved dogs may stay overnight at a Paw Pals pet sitter’s home with our Bed & Biscuit Overnight Dog Sitting service. Bed & Biscuit staycations are for 24 hours, and include three walks a day, feeding, a comfy bed, medication administration, and lots of TLC. Each stay is highly personalized to allow your dogs to continue with their typical routine as closely as possible. Dogs are treated as part of the family when they stay with our sitters, and you’ll return home to find them with a smile on their face! To be eligible for Bed & Biscuit, dogs must be social, friendly, house trained, and be current on their shots and flea and tick medication.
