As nature's most lovable codependents, dogs never tell their owners, "I need my space." In fact, affectionate furballs get mopey when their parents have to do silly things like leave the house and maintain human jobs, and they get full-blown melancholia when their folks go on vacation. Since pups can't take showers or make long distance calls, Reserved Barking fills the void with spa staycations replete with array of pet care and pampering services. In doggy daycare, happy critters gallivant and socialize in indoor and outdoor play areas with over 15,000 square feet of wiggle room, all while being lavished with emotional and mental stimulation by a dedicated staff of dog lovers. Boarded dogs enjoy the daytime daycare attention before snoozing away in kennels. Meanwhile, full-service, breed-specific grooming primps pooches for Westminster runways. Reserved Barking also conducts a training academy that teaches dogs how to reply to commands, overcome aggression and fear, and learn manners such as shaking hands or picking up a check.
Trainer Michelle Yue started Good Dog DC to coach canines and offer solutions to their behavioral issues.

Michelle boasts a solid stack of certifications and professional memberships, and each year she adds to her arsenal of tools with more educational programs.
For many people, pets are a part of the family. So to ensure that the furriest member of your household gets the care it needs, the staff at Dog Gone Walking & Pet Care offer their clients’ pets socialization, exercise, and daily care while their owners are away. Whether simply letting a dog out during the work day, keeping them fed and cared for while owner are on vacation, or taking pets to the vet, the staff work to keep pets happy and healthy without owners having to install that pet door into the refrigerator. While team members visit your house, they can also provide miscellaneous services ranging from bringing in mail to running necessary errands.
The six veterinarians that helm VetweRx share more than the office's high-tech equipment: they genuinely love the animals. The ultramodern equipment does come in handy, though, as the veterinarians deliver treatments to domestic and exotic pets. Together, they provide vaccinations, dental cleanings, x-rays, spaying and neutering, and surgeries to quell joint pain and bone problems.
Happy Tail Grooming Salon?s staff pampers pets with the same care they would give their own family. These furry children get their hair washed with all-natural shampoos and trimmed to best highlight the features of their particular breed. Staff members then check on the pet's skin, eyes, ears, and teeth to make sure they aren?t suffering from any common medical problems and apply special creams to get rid of any fleas or ticks.
