I highly recommend Your Dog Smiles to anyone who needs a caring, attentive and loving pet sitter. The updates and photos after each visit were so reassuring , I knew my little guy was in good hands. Thank you!!

Your Dog Smiles always provides excellent service and is great with all of our pets, even the turtle! The best part is that you get thoroughly documented updates telling you how the visit went, what was done during the visit, and even pictures of your pets during the visit. It really helps put your mind at ease, and lets you feel confident that your pets are in good hands.

Colleen is amazing! She always goes above and beyond to entertain our cats (and herself!) We truly think they look forward to her visiting, even if they don't show it. We happily trust Your Dog Smiles with our pets every time we are away.

Your Dog Smiles was recommended by a neighbor who had used them for five years. We were thrilled with their attention to detail and adaptability. Our dog, who is energetic and fun-loving, fell in love with Colleen and waits at the door each morning. Very happy we are using Your Dog Smiles.

There is no other company that I would entrust my pups to other than Your Dog Smiles! Colleen takes care of my dogs as if they were her own and they absolutely love her. I could not recommend them more!

If you are looking for a professional, friendly, qualified pet sitter, Your Dog Smiles is your answer. Wonderful team who genuinely cares about your pet.

Smokey is a super shy cat. I have been through multiple cat sitting options and decided to try YDS on a recommendation from a friend. For the first time ever Smokey overcame her shyness and interacted with the sitter (Tammy), and on the first visit no less! I can finally feel that Smokey is in good hands when I am away. Thank you so much!

Colleen and her team always provide top-notch care for our two fur babies. I can rest assured they both are being cared for how I would care for them. Seth, our Siamese usually hides when it comes to strangers and on day one came out for scratches and cuddles from Colleen. That says volumes to me. I highly recommend YDS to anyone looking for pet sitters!! Thanks again for the great care and attention you provide to Hapi and Seth.

Ashley took great care of our kitties, just like she always does, and we really appreciated that Jasmine was able to tell our neighbor that I accidentally left my phone at home. Above and beyond your usual excellent service!!!

The walkers are all amazing. You know how Fenway loves Chris and his daily walks, but you can see how happy Fenway is in the pictures Marly takes and she provides the most upbeat and detailed notes which is great when leaving your fur baby overnight alone.

Allie - Reston, VA

Marly is so sweet and Ellie seems to like her. Thank you!

Scott - Great Falls, VA

We enjoy the photos of our pets in their environment and the maps of where they have been walked during the session. It is comforting to know we have someone reliable to take such loving care of our pets and spend time with the when we are away.

Pamela - Herndon, VA

My experience with Your Dog Smiles has always been wonderful! The sitters go above and beyond to love on my pets and make sure they are well cared for in my absence. If they have any questions they always call or text ,and every single sitter is very personable, responsible, and kind.

Sarah - Aldie, VA

Very impressed with the new gps on the report. It is nice to see where the dogs walked. The sitters had great communication and cared for my dogs well. As always, great dog watching experience!

Rachael clearly is a wonderful sitter! This is the 3rd time she has sat with our pets and we could not be more delighted with the care they get.

Paula - Sterling, VA

We loved getting the journals after each visit and it gave us so much peace of mind! The pictures were such a wonderful added bonus!!! It was great knowing that Charlie was SO well cared for! This was Charlie's first experience with a sitter and IT WAS WONDERFUL!!! I will recommend you to all our friends when looking for a dog sitter!

Susan - Reston, VA

It is such a great comfort to have Your Dog Smiles sitters looking after our very senior dog. Her vision and hearing problems made for some special problems that each of the sitters handled very well. They were all very patient and understanding with her.
We have used YDS several times now and have always been pleased and impressed. Thanks so much!

Angela - Reston, VA

August 2018

I appreciated the humor and the details regarding our very shy cats who were non-existent except for Max who got caught in a picture.

Jennifer - Reston, VA

July 2018

They were both very attentive to my cats and very informative to me, letting me know how the place was overall as well as details about the two boys. And very responsive with questions I had.

Mia - Leesburg, VA

We had another very positive experience with YDS. The kitties have really warmed up to Colleen and Shannon. Love the journals and photos that are sent at each visit. Will definitely use YDS again!!

Matt - Chantilly, VA

Rachel provided great updates and seemed to really care about our cats. We enjoyed having her as a sitter.

Mia - Leesburg, VA

I love how reports and photos of each visit are provided. We felt so comfortable knowing our kitties were both taken care of so well. We will not worry the next time we leave our kitties in your hands. Thank you relieving the stress of leaving our pets. We know they are good hands with Your Dog Smiles.

This was our first time using a service and we are very impressed. Having the dogs taken care of made our vacation much more enjoyable. Thank you all.

Stacy - Potomac Falls, VA

Yes. Love the text messages & pics!

Julie - Sterling, VA

May 2018

I felt extremely comfortable leaving my Riley with Kevin S. Although Riley is shy around men, he bonded right away with Kevin and snuggled up to him on the couch at our meet and greet. Kevin is very professional, asked me the right questions, had Riley’s safety and best interests in mind, and has a true heart for pet care. I developed a level of trust with Kevin in my home- he was mature, respectful, and left no trace. We arrived back to a clean home. I would highly recommend Kevin S and Your Dog Smiles.

Cheryl - Herndon, VA

March 2018

I appreciated visit details and pics of the kitties. I have also had Kevin and Morgan K. sit for me and throughly appreciated their feedback and pics too. Very happy with my experience! It's so nice to know that my kitties are well taken care of and loved on, and the team waters my plants too! It's also nice to have details handwritten in my pet services journal. A nice touch in a techie world. Would be happy to refer your company to anyone!

Steve rocks! One of my dogs is shy with men, but Steve won him over in a few days. He has been taking care of my boys for about 2 years now, and he is 100% reliable; I'm so grateful for him. If he ever has a question or concern he immediately calls or texts to make sure I'm aware. I love the notes that he leaves about their walks, and I know my boys love him. Thanks for everything, Steve!

Edna - Fairfax, VA

As usual, Ashley reports my dog's general mood, his walk and what his does("business"). She marks the time and adds pleasantries.
I relax knowing my pet has a visit and a walk during the time I am away from home. Thank you.

Virginia  - Fairfax, VA

We have been with YourDogSmiles for over four years. They have been easy to schedule and work with. The staff have all been a pleasure. They have gone above and beyond in taking care of my picky pup, especially Ashley. Ashley has been excellent to Windsor, always giving him love and honey, his favorite treat. We are confident he is well cared for during his midday walks and it allows us flexibility in our professional careers.

My boy Leo is always very well taken care of by your dog smiles!!!
I will always recommend using their services.

Kathleen - Ashburn, VA

July 2016

Gwen was awesome. She was incredibly communicative on how my fur babies were doing at every visit, including sending us pictures. When she had a question, she immediately called us to double-check our instructions. Leo has medical issues, and she did great giving him his meds (he can be a handful!). Having YDS take care of the kitties while we were gone really allowed us to relax and enjoy our vacation knowing our babies were well cared for. For service and value, YDS can't be beat. Thanks so much!

Jessica - Sterling, VA

May 2016

Gwen is terrific!! We always come home to happy pups & funny notes! She also sends pictures with each journal and detailed text messages to ease our minds while being away

Jean - Reston, VA

YDS is the by far the best pet service ever! They are reliable, and caring and if you don't already use them you should! What would I do without them?!

Jessica is ideal. Super great. I really appreciate what she does and I feel like you all go above and beyond. Thank you so much. I don't know what I would do without you. :)

Daniel - Fairfax, VA

The sitter was terrific. Joey was well cared for and happy. We were glad to receive a lengthy note about the care he received.

Dyann - Reston, VA

January 2014

I am new to the area and have used your services on three occassions to care for my kitties while I have been out of town. I appreciate that Jessica has been available each time. She texts me to let me know how they are and leaves me notes each time she visits. Most recently, my work schedule changed on short notice and I had to be out of town the a day earlier than expected. I appreciate you and Jessica being flexible to care for my kitties.

Allison - Reston, VA

January 2014

Alexa and Kristina were awesome! Holly is typically very anxious and although she did not approach them willingly when they came, they worked with her and by their second visits, she was friendly and excited to see them. Kristina even sent us a picture of Holly getting a belly rub the second night we were away which eased our minds. Holly was in great hands and we now know we can go away with peace of mind that Holly will be well cared for!

Michelle - Oakton, VA

October 2013

Julie was terrific. I feel so much more at easy going away when the sitter texts me. She did a great job with that and texted me at least once a day. I hope she will be available again to take care of Rocky :)
