Deliciously Charitable

The Lost Dog Café is located in various parts of Northern VA, and is most definitely the place you want to go if you are in the mood for a sandwich and beer. Dogs are more than welcome, so feel free to enjoy the outdoors if you have your pup with you! Proceeds of your meal go to The Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation, so you can feel great about having eaten out!

The Stray Cat Café is located in Arlington, VA, and is a cat-themed version of The Lost Dog Café. Proceeds of your meal go to The Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation, so you can feel great about having eaten out!

 

Behavior & Training

dOgBEDIENCE‘s expert Police K-9 handler and private dog trainer, Michael Peer, is doing an amazingly excellent job with Rosco, my parents’ Rottweiler-German Shepherd mix puppy. We are super happy with how far Roscoe has come from when we first adopted him! I cannot recommend Michael enough, especially if you have a large dog.

Jackson Galaxy‘s ‘My Cat From Hell’ show and YouTube videos on cat behavior are superb and don’t make you feel like an idiot for not knowing everything there is to know about cats, or for making a mistake. They were a great help when introducing Shelby and Cass.
