Clients and Friends, let’s talk about the future at a time when the very word “future” is no longer a thing of certainty.

So many small businesses have been able to “pivot” their model during this crisis to serve people differently in a way that keeps them in business. Those of us in the service industry are not able to do that as easily. There are no “virtual dog walks” ☺️. We rely on normal - normal work schedules, normal school schedules, normal travel schedules. Without people leaving their homes - or having the extra money to use a dog walking company- our services become less necessary, however we are grateful for some exceptions the last 2 months.

The next 2-3 months will determine the future of Suburban Tails. People will cancel their trips due to travel restrictions, closures, safety, and also because of financial instability (vacation < paying mortgage). Midday dog walking will get cancelled because teleworking is winning out in keeping people gainfully employed.... or people are still unemployed ☹️. Teachers/students work and study at home and the plan for LCPS 2020/2021 is still very much an unknown.

HOWEVER: We are open for business NOW! If you do a day trip, move forward with your vacation, brought home a new puppy and need some extra help, or still want your dog to start having a regular walk again as our county inches back into some version of normal CALL US. If things don’t return to a level of ongoing stability then I will have to pivot myself into a new direction for the security and well being of my family. Until the moment comes when I have to consider that- we are HERE for you, as we have been since 2005.

Much love and good health to ALL of you,
Colleen O'Rourke Dixon

Taz and Callie!!
These two beautiful pit mix rescues came to dear friends after years of their daughter struggling with severe dog allergies. After going through allergy therapy and finding out their daughter was actually allergic to dog SALIVA they were able to find a treatment that worked. Not only are they able to be devoted and loving dog owners but their daughter now works in a doggie daycare!
This is important for people to know in regards to animal allergies- sometimes the saliva allergy is not considered, and there are no true hypoallergenic dogs because all dogs have saliva. Please do your research and due diligence when it comes to allergies and pets.

Kitty cat Friday!

Don’t be afraid, my friend @lukecatwalker not a giant tree-sized monster cat, this is merely a photo trick. Whew. His personality is as big as this tree though and is very specific about showing me where the treats are. In case I’d forgotten from the last time. Happy Friday!

Harper and Poppy. These two... I don’t even have enough space to write about these two. A beautiful, elegant Vizsla and her mini GoldenDoodle sister have been in our lives for several years now. They are consummate love bugs, as you can see in the first picture they are crawling over each other to give me kisses. We love these two and are happy we are still spending time with them these past few weeks!

Kitty cat Friday! Coco and Chanel are deserving of a special spotlight for many reasons! The first being that they are so gorgeous and sweet. They know I come to give them love and yummies!
I was also extremely fortunate to have their owner work for me this last year, and it gave me such peace of mind to have someone so committed and dependable keeping my business moving forward. Thank you Carol!

It’s kitty Friday! Penelope is a long time pet sitting client and is a total LOVE. She runs down the stairs to greet me as soon as I come in the house and knows I have to fill up her food/water and clean her littler before she gets all of the snuggles. She’s extremely affectionate and such a good girl 🐱. Miss you Penelope!

I’m a softie for any kind of bull breed, and Maggie holds one of the softest spots for me! She is one of the chillest puppies I’ve ever cared for and is so lucky to have the sweetest family. Whether she’s enjoying a midday walk or cozying herself up to us in our home we can count on her bringing a smile to our faces.

Most dogs have a quirk or three.... Caseys’ quirk is SHOES! She loves to lay on them, carry them around, show them to you, yet she’s never destroyed even one. Casey is a gentle Beagle soul who moved out of the area some time ago but we thankfully still get to see every so often ❤️ We love her and all her oddities with all our hearts!

Happy Monday! It’s gray and gloomy, seemingly as a Monday should be even during a quarantine so I HAVE to show off this sassy face . Owen is a 5-year old Cavachon with 10 miles of personality in a tiny little body. Wherever he is, he is in charge. His mom admits she sometimes likes him more than anyone else in their house.... we can all relate right?!?

Are you in love with this face yet or what? Say hello to “Coco”! She’s a boxer/pit/lab mix who lives with a wonderful young family in South Riding. Coco LOVES walks, but had an uncertain life before she found her loving family so things can still be scary for her sometimes, but things are scary for us sometimes too right? Her color is amazing, she’s a velvety gray with tan brindle, truly one of a kind. How lucky she is to find a family so committed to her and I am committed to her daily walks as well.

We miss our clients SO much. While we are all SO thankful to be safe at home with our families it’s hard not to be working. To brighten things up I will feature one of our furry clients EVERY DAY!
Today we are loving Patches! She is an American Bulldog with a pinch of bully stubbornness but full of love, sweetness and joy! I’ve seen her come such a long way and love that I still get to walk her and help her human out during the shutdown.

Thank you ALL for all the support you have given us at this difficult time. We know we won’t see some of our fiends soon and some we see daily still because their families are doing very important jobs that will help all of us get through this. But we love each and every one of you and can’t wait for all the walkers, licks and snuggles when it’s over ❤️

A few words from us.... While what’s going on in the world this week is unprecedented, please know we are here for you. We realize not everyone has the benefit of telework so if your pet needs care we will be there. That being said, if you or anyone in your household is showing signs of illness please do the courtesy of postponing visits until things are clear. While we are a service business, us and our families’ health and well-being come first.
Please take care of yourselves and each other 🍷

Animal abuse suspect to open pet store with familiar name in Chantilly

Editing to add: Sign this petition to stop animal abusers from ever operating businesses like this eve again!

https://www.change.org/p/virginia-state-house-stop-people-who-have-been-charged-with-animal-cruelty-from-operating-a-pet-business?utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=custom_url&recruited_by_id=116b9b30-5972-11ea-9b87-8749d37939be

This is AWFUL. Those who know how disgusting the local “pet stores” like Dreamy Puppy and My Next Puppy are, the owner who is being convicted of ANIMAL ABUSE is opening a new store in Chantilly Crossing called Woofys... name sounds familiar? That’s because a very professional and respected pet sifting company called Woofies has the same name, and is fighting this all the way to court.
PLEASE PLEASE do not ever set foot in these kinds of places, they are the reasons puppy mills exist. Mama dogs suffer their entire lives so they can provide profit for these hellholes 😡

At least one man awaiting trial on animal cruelty charges for the way he allegedly ran a Petland store in Fairfax City is now reportedly tied to another puppy store set to open in Chantilly, Virginia but he’s being met with some pushback.

Shenandoah Shepherd Rescue has over 100 dogs available for adoption. Some are special needs, some need an extra alpha owner to take charge, some have just been overlooked for no reason. Please read, share, consider adoption, share to someone who might be looking for their new best friend , or make a donation if you so desire.

https://www.facebook.com/1166849383431144/posts/2706137059502361/

Friends, we need your help, and not in the usual way.

We have nearly ONE HUNDRED dogs available for adoption. The amount of pleas pouring in is unbelievable and completely overwhelming. We are now at a standstill until we can move some dogs into their forever homes and open up fosters for the dozens of dogs waiting in Texas.

For the sake of simplicity, this post will focus on the dogs already on the east coast and ready to go to their homes immediately.

These dogs may be deemed 'safe' in your eyes and less urgent, but remember, until they are adopted they are tying up homes leaving us to say no to the hundreds of GSD pleas we see every single week. Many of these dogs have been with SSR for months, some even over a year.

Please, please consider opening your home to one of these amazing dogs.

Please share this post.

Please consider fostering.

So many lives left to save, but we cannot forget about the ones already under our care!

As a small dog walking and pet sitting business for the past 15 years we appreciate each and every client that has trusted us with the care of their family pets. We will never be an enormous franchised company with 100+ dog walkers and that’s fine with us, your business keeps a small community operation running and my little family very happy. Thank you all again and we hope for many more years of service to the community!

Tess is a 2-year old #brusselsgriffon and Maggie is a 17-year old #beagle! Maggie is blind and deaf but still powers on each and every day! I am so grateful every chance I have to visit with her ❤️
