"We believe experience equals quality care for your dog.  Our staff brings together
knowledge and experience in animal b
ehavior to fuel our passion and love for dogs!"
Owner
After spending 21 years in advertising for The Washington Post, Kim Houghton decided it was time to branch out into her own business.   But it was more than simply owning a business; Kim wanted something she was passionate about.  After researching businesses she learned about the doggy daycare concept and this new trend in pet care services. She knew this was a perfect fit for her love of dogs.   Kim developed her own concept based on providing upscale services, in a premier facility with a staff certified in dog behavior and handling.

Currently, Kim is a Certified Pet Care Technician, who volunteers with Lost Dogs Rescue, Pets on Wheels and other various canine groups.  As a former board member of ArlingtonDogs, she helps out with the Canine Community Areas (dog parks) of Arlington County.  Kim's love of animals began as a child growing up with three to four dogs as part of the "human" family. Over the years Kim's love of dogs grew with her own dog family beginning with "Max", a lovable and loyal mutt.  Now three lovable companions Roxy (Lab), Ronin  (Tibetan Terrier) and Daisy (Mutt) fuel her passion for canines and her desire to open Wag More Dogs.  Kim consulted with dog trainer and dog daycare expert Robin Bennett in building her facility and getting Robin's stamp of approval on her daycare and boarding services.
