I love this service. It is pricey (especially for two dogs like mine, not so bad for single dog families), but definitely worth every penny. I have two younger (3 years old and 2 years old) dogs that are both VERY active. While this isn't a problem when I am at home, they hate going to the kennel when I travel. I started using Affectionate Pet Care over a year ago and I haven't used anyone else since. Both my dogs love going there and are TIRED when they get home, which is perfect for me, since the last thing I want to do after traveling for hours is have to wear out my dogs. Even though my dogs were social before going here, I definitely feel that they are more so now. I have never had a major issue after leaving my dogs at Affectionate Pet. They provide report cards telling you the names of the dogs your dog played with, how often they were fed, and how your dogs behaved. It really gives you the feeling that they know your dogs and are aware of what is going on instead of just letting dogs run wild. They also go out of their way to stay open a few minutes late if you are running late and have great customer service in general. BOARDING: A+ Their dog walkers are great. I just recently started this, because I needed to board my dogs last minute for a weekend, but Affectionate was booked. So I tried out the dog walking service. Cindy was the walker that worked with me. She took notes about the dogs, refilled their water bowl, and in general took care of them. I came home to two dogs that were eager to see me, but not hyper with pent up energy after me being gone for 18 hours. You can have them come by multiple times a day and they try to schedule your walks when you think they should. DOG WALKING: A+ Their grooming is good, however neither of my dogs are difficult to groom, so for dogs with special cuts I couldn't speak to. It is convenient to have the dogs groomed after a stay, but I generally prefer to have them kept playing with other dogs to wear them out. As for price of grooming, it isn't bad, but you can find more competitive rates at other places. However, I have never had complaints about Affectionate's grooming, while I can say that I won't use other more and quot;competitiveand quot; places any more. GROOMING: A-. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient. They get your dogs ready quickly and you are on your way. I have never had an issue with any member of the staff and they pretty quickly realize which dogs belong to you after seeing you a few times (this also makes me think they really know the dogs). One of my dogs is very indifferent about people, but she loves seeing and greeting the Affectionate staff, so I think that is a very good recommendation in itself. STAFF: A+. Overall, this is the best dog boarding/walking service I have found since living in the NOVA area for almost two and a half years. I strongly recommend that you give them a try. Book way in advance for holidays (after me though), since they fill up fast.
