With any of the suggestions below, members may call the Village if you need support accessing any online or “app” type resources. We have staff and volunteers who can help get you connected, even if we can’t come to your home.

Although there have not been reports of pets or other animals becoming sick with COVID-19, it is still recommended that people sick with COVID-19 limit contact with animals until more information is known about the virus. Humane Rescue Alliance has good information about emergency preparation for pets: http://www.humanerescuealliance.org/blog/posts/a-message-from-lisa-lafontaine-on-covid-19

Atlas Doghouse on H St. NE is a locally owned and operated dog care organization. Check out their website for both boarding and per-diem dog care services.


Wag! is a network of pre-screened and insured pet sitters and dog walkers. In less than 15 minutes you can book a nearby dog sitter, daycare provider, or dog walker, who’ll take complete care of your loved one – at their place or yours.

Wag! pairs your furry family member with an experienced and vetted dog walker in your neighborhood. All background checked and insured.

The price of a Wag! dog walk is determined by location and walk length and usually starts at $20 per 30-minute dog walk. It includes GPS tracking, video and text message updates during the walk. Wag! accepts all major credit cards, including VISA, MasterCard and American Express. Never pay by cash or check as this makes your booking ineligible for premium insurance and 24/7 support.

Wag! offers three types of walks: ASAP, One-Time, and Recurring. ASAP walks are best if you would like your walker to arrive within the hour. One-time walks are best if you are looking to have your pup walked at a specific time in the day, or if you’re looking to schedule a walk for a later date. Recurring walks are the way to go if you’d like to set up a recurring schedule with a walker on a weekly or daily basis.
