Patrick’s Pet Care coming to Columbia Heights

Patrick’s Pet Care’s website says:

“Going on vacation? Need to leave town on short notice? Have a pet with special needs? Get in touch and I will come pick up your pet(s) or you can bring your pet(s) to my place in Columbia Heights where they will have free reign and I will care for them as my own. Or, if your pets are more comfortable in their own environment, I will happily come to your place to care for their every need according to your existing routine. If you prefer I will even stay overnight at your house while you’re away and take care of the place as I would my own.”

Locations are also listed in Adams Morgan and Bethesda.

Ed. Note: This is the third iteration of a pet store at this location. Updates when an exact opening date is announced.


  • Interesting that he chose to have a store front when his website seems to reflect that he does a lot of home visits. That said, best of luck, Patrick! We can always use more reliable pet sitters in the area.

    As an aside, I want to give a shout-out to another pet service I discovered recently–U&Pet’s pet taxi. I needed to take my cat to a specialty clinic in Virginia and Claudio was prompt, kind, and wonderful! For those without a car, I highly recommend him.

    Anyone know if he’s taking over the entire ground floor? It looks like the old Arthur’s might become a food option. I was a little bummed to see another pet store try to make a go in that spot; was hoping for another restaurant.

    i’m excited about to have him in the neighborhood! patrick has walked our skittish greyhound and has also cared for two of my neighbors’ pets, all with great care and really clear communication with the owners. highly recommend his services.

      We just adopted a greyhound and are looking for an occasional walker, so good to know!

    Ya, interesting choice of another pet store but hopefully it does well.

    Experience related to Patrick’s services were mediocre with the pet sitting part. Found out my dog was kept in a crate for several hours while he was off walking for other clients. Not the worst thing in the world but not the best for my anxiety ridden shelter dog. We paid for house sitting and we’re told that he could roam free (dog is well behaved and doesn’t chew). When asked if he was crated we were told no when we could clearly see he was being let out of a crate when we arrived.

    My understanding is that this location will be more of a “doggie day care” than a pet store, based on my own conversations with Patrick. I’m not sure how this will affect his boarding arrangements (i.e., whether he will still board dogs at his own home or at this facility). Either way, good luck to Patrick as he expands his business!

      Free-roam doggie daycare? I have NOT had a good experience with any doggie day cares in DC. Looking forward to Doozy Dogs opening on 14th St. Has anyone heard anything about their status?
