An Alexandria-based dog walking, training, sitting and boarding company for people and their best friends. We love cats too! Ask about our cat sitting specials.

We have been clients of Thomas and the team at For the Love of Dog for nearly a decade now, and continue to recommend them to friends and neighbors in Alexandria, VA. Ginny is our primary walker now, and we cannot speak of her highly enough. She is kind, patient, reliable, trustworthy, friendly, and went above and beyond to take special care of our golden retriever who was terminally ill (and required checking on, and special, shorter, walks). Thomas is also one-of-a-kind, and is extremely reliable, trustworthy, and there to count on for any last minute walks. They also try to accommodate pet sitting needs as best as possible, though the schedule books up fast. We also appreciate that FTLOD charges on a per-walk basis as opposed to a monthly contract, and that they are flexible with cancellations and schedule changes. Both Thomas and Ginny truly love animals, and have a lot of previous experience with training, rescue, and also have that "little extra something," which shows that this is more than just a business to them.
