We have taken our dog to woofs doggy day care for about a year. Our dog has a great time there - and has learned to socialize with other dogs. We would highly rec this day care. I often get told funny stories about what our dog does during the day. We have also boarded our dog there and have taken obedience classes too. I know they work with her through out the day as her behavior has improved over the last year. I was also pleasantly surprised around the holidays when we got a picture of her surrounded by "snow" wearing a red cap. And I must give kudos to the staff. I have a newborn and often it is hard to bring him inside while picking our dog up - so all I have to do is call from my car and someone will bring our dog out. I really appreciate that!

I have been a client of WOOFS for over five years. I am quite knowledgeable about dogs, dog training, and the behavior/ language of dogs. I participate in dog sports, as well. This is just to say I know of what I speak.I have had only very positive experiences with WOOFS and when I say positive, I mean positive. I have found the owner and her staff to always be professional, caring, and extremely helpful. I pop into WOOFS at all times of the day due to my schedule and some health issues. They are ALWAYS supervising the dogs. And as far as the puppies are concerned, there is a person who sits in the room with them.I have used other day care facilities (none since my experience with WOOFS) and I was always disappointed, as I did not feel they supervised the dogs that well or gave them the attention they needed as there were not enough concerned staff. Whenever, I called, they said "oh she's fine". WOOFS, on the other hand, gives me detailed information and tells me how they did with added bonus of simple training exercises they do during the day. I have sent a total of six dogs to WOOFS who have always gone way beyond the call of duty to care for my dogs. The owner and staff are in this field because they love caring for dogs and their well being.I have also used WOOFS for boarding my dogs and training. It is the only place I will board my dogs as I love the cageless boarding and the dogs get to play during the day. When I've called either while on vacation or in the hospital, I have always received the utmost in information, any issues, and assurance. I call frequently to see how my dogs are doing. Not because, I don't trust WOOFS, it is the ONLY boarding facility I do trust. That's just me. Boarding my dogs or leaving them in daycare puts my mind at rest when I have other things to concentrate on. I NEVER worry about my dogs at WOOFS.I am not unrealistic in that things do happen when dogs play. My boy, Sammie, was severely injured in a dog park and I watch my dogs like a hawk. Another dog slammed into him and he ended up with degenerative joint disease in his knee. Did I feel it was the park's fault or the other dog's fault, of course not. Due to this, Sammie will not be able to do agility but his joy in playing in the dog park far outweighs my desire for him to do agility.In summary, I, needless to say, have been more than a satisfied client--I am an ecstatic client and as I mentioned, I've been using WOOFS for well over 5 years. Several of the staff have their CPDT certification, which means they have taken numerous seminars regarding the training and care of dogs. They also are required to have extensive hands on training/care of dogs and take a certification test. BTW, they have a superb training staff- I have taken several dogs to their classes. Even though I belong to a dog club where I can take classes free, I come to WOOFS as they train with only positive methods. Apart from their superb training staff, they also have one of the best, if not the best, agility instructor in the area.Finally, I could not have come through my extensive surgery last winter without the help, caring, and expertise of WOOFS, I knew they were in great hands and I could focus on healing. They never heard from me except for me to say, they'd have to stay longer and even though it was a holiday weekend, they were more than than willing to accommodate.I have definitely sung the praises of WOOFS but it is due to what THEY do day in and day out!

My fiance and I boarded our 4.5 month old terrier mix at Woofs for a day in a half. While she was there she fractured her leg and none of the staff members noticed until it was dinner time. Worse yet, they didn't call us or take her to the vet. It wasn't until the next night when we came to pick her up that we learned there was a problem. They were not helpful and neglected to pay proper attention to our dog. They left puppies unsupervised which is probably when our puppy fractured her leg. When we picked her up she was whining and in terrible shape. They showed little concern and said that it was not broken, although last I checked the woman at the front desk did not have x-ray vision. We took her to the vet the next morning and found out that it was made much worse by her walking on it for the 36 hours before. She's in a splint and is facing permanent damage as she is developing and growing. She is facing a month of no walks, no playing, just rest and short potty breaks. When I explained what the vet told me to the owner of the establishment, she got very defensive, dropped the f*bomb twice as well as other curse words. No one can tell me what happened because no one was watching her! I was calm on the phone with her, I just wanted answers and she was very difficult to speak with. She showed no concern for our dog's well-being. They robbed our puppy of at least one month of her life because they neglected to provide the care they promised. We were going to sign up for obedience training, and daycare at least once a week - but after the horrible treatment our dog received we want to warn others what could possibly happen. When asked what happened the owner said that there were risks associated with daycare - apparently one of those risks is being left unsupervised. Think twice before you trust them with your dog's well-being. It's been very disturbing to witness the pain that our puppy is going through. Woofs will not accept responsibility for what happened to our dog and told us that it would be impossible to take every dog that limps at daycare to the vet. Our dog was not just limping, she was only walking on three legs, switching between holding her leg up and letting it drag behind her on the floor. Her leg was hot and swollen and tender at the joint and they did not notice. We're facing thousands in vet bills, biweekly vet appointments, and multiple months of recovery Our dog was not just limping, she was only walking on three legs, switching between holding her leg up and letting it drag behind her on the floor. Her leg was hot and swollen and tender at the joint and they did not notice.

We take our dog to the Shirlington Woofs for daycare/boarding. When he started having issues at doggie daycare, they were very helpful and took time to talk to me on the phone about his issues. They know the dogs that come in and are very affectionate and friendly with them. We also used Woofs for training. As a new dog owner, training with them helped set us up for success with our dog.
