(21)

The Animals' House provides a complete, preferred, quality, and convenient dog daycare service. Our services include dog daycare, obedience training, various dayschool options, agility classes, dog taxi service, in-home pet care, and overnight boarding. We utilize the latest techniques in animal training and daycare by employing a knowledgeable and professional staff, outstanding recreational acti

vities in our facility, and a diverse curriculum of training and interaction instruction. Unfortunately, caring animal owners often do not have the time throughout the workweek to adequately provide a healthy lifestyle for their companions. The Animals' House solves this dilemma by providing animal daycare throughout the workday, and training and educational services during the evenings. Our service is conveniently located and staffed with professionals with many years of experience.

Say Hello to Ash (the puppy) and Goose (the bigger puppy). Both are German Short Hair Pointers and as goofy as they are beautiful. They are not related but gravitated towards each other almost instantly. We just had to let them meet. Once Ash is a little bigger they will play all day we're sure!

Follow us on Instagram for some cuteness overload!

Did you hear the scoop? Gelato is our newest pet of the week! ๐Ÿพ

Gelato is a 7 month old English Bulldog whose sweet, wrinkly face will have you melting! This girl is so independent... She loves coming to daycare and playing with all of her friends. When sheโ€™s not busy winning a game of tug-of-war, thereโ€™s a good chance sheโ€™s chillinโ€™ (and maybe even snoring ๐Ÿ’ค) in the corner. We are so lucky we get to hang out with this cutie while her pawrents are at work - her sweetness always brightens our day!๐Ÿฆ

The Animals' House is finally on Instagram and just in time because this week's Pet of the Week features double the cuteness... Meet Odin and Freya - the sweetest Aussie sibling pair we have ever seen! Odin, 11 months old, is the best big brother to little Freya, 4 months old. He has had a blast showing her the ropes of The Animals' House as they participate in one of our boot camp programs. When they aren't busy posing for the pup-arazzi, playing chase with their friends, or learning new skills with their trainer Kathy, you can find (and join!) Odin and Freya in a big cuddle puddle. We wish these lovebugs could stay and play furever but we know how much their mom is missing them... we hope they come back to visit soon! ๐Ÿพ
If you are interested in learning more about our boot camp programs, head over to our website (link in bio) or give us a call at 703-433-1300. ๐Ÿถ

We highly recommend them for their boarding/traning.
Harry Rochester & I just passed the Pet Partners team evaluation!! We are restricted to non-fragile people for now because of his young age, huge size, and high exuberance ๐Ÿคช
Big thanks to The Animalsโ€™ House crew and especially Matt, Nicole, and the Day Care staff for helping us prepare for and pass this test!!
This was too cute not to share.
Harry is all tuckered out after Mattโ€™s leash class

This moment wouldnโ€™t have been possible without the amazing tools of boot camp for these two graduates Moochie the cattledog and Rose the rottweiler mix. Thank you!!
