About Us

Welcome to The National Capital Area Professional Pet Sitters Network, formerly The Northern Virginia Professional Pet Sitters Network. Founded in 1998, the Network is an all-volunteer, membership-based non-profit, with a mission to promote professional pet sitting in the DC Metro area, including Northern Virginia, the District of Columbia and Maryland. We maintain a membership base of independently owned and operated area pet care businesses whose owners are committed to excellence in professional pet sitting, community outreach and involvement.

Hire a NCA Professional Pet Sitters Network member and you will be guaranteed to get a professional, insured and bonded pet sitter or dog walker. While out of town or stuck long days at the office, you’ll know that your pets are being well cared for and are safe and happy in their own environment.

Member companies provide the following services*:

  • Vacation Pet Sitting

  • Midday Dog Walking

  • Overnight Visits

  • Bed & Biscuit Home Boarding

  • Basic Home Care and Security Checks

  • Medication Administration

* Please note that this is a sampling of the services our members provide. Please check with individual companies for specific services.

For your peace of mind, all members are required to be insured, bonded and affiliated with at least one national pet care industry organization. In addition, all members have signed our Pledge of Professional Conduct.
