Visit Website

Business Description

Romp N Roam is a mobile dog daycare with cage-free boarding that is insured and bonded in the state of Virginia and works out of Springfield. It has won Best of Annandale twice for dog boarding from the Annandale Awards Program, and the owners have more than three decades of experience, having started in the pet care business in 1987. Mobile daycare works similarly to grooming services in the sense that a licensed professional will pick up the dog (or dogs) from the owners’ house and bring them back at the end of the day. A typical day consists of alternating trips to local dog parks or planned five-or-six-mile hikes to keep dogs from growing complacent.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you need a license to run a doggie daycare?

Licensing requirements for dog daycare centers vary, depending on the jurisdiction. No federal licensing requirement exists. So, many state, county, and local governments establish laws, regulations, and ordinances for businesses that board animals. Check with your local government administration office and your state board of agriculture to learn about any licensing or permitting requirements in your area.

Does doggy daycare help with separation anxiety?

Separation anxiety is typically caused by undependable schedules, the introduction of new people, the loss of a family member, or a move. Separation anxiety can be awful for your four-legged companion. Fortunately, doggy daycare is an effective countermeasure.
