The perfect place for your dog’s next overnight stay

U&Pet Waterfront Dog Retreat is your dog’s dream stay come true.

The Waterfront Dog Retreat features a 13 acre property with many open fields, winding paths through luscious greenery, and clean sandy beaches where your dog can step away from the concrete jungle for some all-natural R&R.

Next, your dog can get up to speed on all the latest canine gossip during social hour in our 30,000 sq ft shaded dog park, all while listening to the soothing sounds of the diverse bird population and smelling the wildlife of Piscataway Park.

At night your dog will bed down, not in a chain-linked kennel, but in a comfortable home-like environment that will have them at ease.

U&Pet also provides complimentary door-to-door transportation to/from the Retreat to Washington DC.

Pick-up times are 8am – 10am or 4pm – 7pm.

Would you be able to pick up and/or drop off my dog?

Yes, pick up and drop off is complementary for any dog that lives within the District of Columbia. For those in Virginia and Maryland, we have a central pick up and drop off point that we can coordinate with you. Alternatively, you may drop off or pick up your pet directly at the pet sitter's home.

What is your cancellation policy?

Cancellations made with at least 24 hours notice will receive a full refund. Cancellations made without 24 hours notice will incur a non-refundable 15% fee.

Holiday Visit Cancellations: Please understand we are very busy for all holiday seasons and we fill up quickly. If visits are canceled in the last few days prior to service, we can’t refill those spots. Any cancellation within 1 week prior to the first scheduled visit will be incur a 15% charge and within 3 days a 50% charge.

Will you let me know how my pet is doing while I am away?

Yes, absolutely! We will keep you posted with personal messages and pictures throughout the stay.

What happens in an emergency?

We will do everything in our capacity to ensure that your pet is safe and secure throughout the pet sit. We will follow any emergency recommendations that you have provided and will keep you updated throughout. In the event of a serious emergency we work in conjunction with a 24-hour vet.

How much notice do you require for scheduling?

We like to have as much notice as possible, but we try to accommodate short notices (less than a week) whenever we can. We realize that sometimes our clients are unable to avoid a short notice (emergencies, travel for work, etc.) so we try to do our best to accommodate those needs.

Just remember that the sooner you schedule, the better the odds of securing the time you need.

Please understand that short notice visits require extra effort on our part and may be subject to additional fees (usually 10-20%). Please also note that the pet sit time may be shorter if we are having to fit the sitting into our already busy schedules. We will, however, do everything we can to be there when needed in an emergency.

All extra fees must be included in your payment for short notice scheduling.

Do you work on weekends and holidays? Is there an extra fee?

Yes, we work 7 days a week and every holiday! There is no additional charge for weekend visits but most holiday periods are subject to an additional charge, which can vary depending on the holiday.
