The Animals' House is your pet's home away from home.

 

The Animals' House provides complete, preferred, quality, and convenient dog daycare, boarding and training services. Our programs include dog daycare, overnight boarding, obedience training, agility classes, dog bootcamp, mid-day dog walking, and a variety of specialized and diverse dog training courses. Our highly trained and professional staff members pride themselves in providing the best possible care and attention to both our canine and human clients.

 

We are focused on the everyday needs of caring animal owners and their companions. 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 dog daycare throughout the workday, and training and educational services during the evenings. Our facility is conveniently located and staffed with professionals with many years' experience. We offer a variety of programs that foster strong relationships between dog owners and their companions.

COVID-19 Updates

June 1, 2020

     As we move forward into Phase 2 of Northern Virginia's reopening, we have the following updates to share: 

     Our doggie daycare, overnight boarding and boot camp services are all open and running on a normal schedule.  Feel free to call the office, or email us to make your reservation now.

     'In Person' Obedience classes are beginning again soon!  Here are the guidelines for our group classes:

Disinfecting Protocol

  • Hand sanitizer will be available at all entrances and exits.

  • Areas that are commonly touched such as door handles, sink handles, toilet handles, soap dispensers and hand sanitizer dispensers will be disinfected immediately after each class.

  •  In order to maintain a clean and sanitized facility, The Animals’ House has committed to increased cleaning frequencies throughout the day, including cleaning and disinfecting all kennels, play areas, toys, play structures and all client areas. The disinfectant used regularly throughout the facility does kill coronavirus.

Class Protocol

We ask everyone to follow these procedures if you will be in attendance for a class at The Animals’ House.

  • Upon entering the building, everyone will be asked to either wash hands or use hand sanitizer.

  • Hand sanitizer will be available at all entrances and exits.

  • All students, parents, and staff are asked to wear a face mask for the duration of their time in the building until further notice.

  • Dog training classes will take place outdoors whenever possible.

  • Class sizes will be limited and chairs will be placed in a manner to assist with social distancing.

  • Until Phase 2 begins in Northern Virginia, we ask that there only be one family member attending classes.  When Phase 2 begins, you are welcome to bring more family members with you to attend classes.

General Health and Wellness

  • All clients, students, parents, and staff are required to be symptom-free and without fever prior to the start of class.

  • If you are feeling sick or have been in contact with anyone positively diagnosed with Covid-19 in the last 14 days, we please ask that you refrain from coming to class. We will provide you with alternative options!

     To date, there is no evidence that companion animals or pets can spread COVID-19 (per CDC guidance). For the latest information about coronavirus and pets, we encourage you to visit the links below:
