Pete and Annie

“Aunt” Rosemary has been Pete’s and Annie’s friend, confidant, and bringer of tasty snacks for several years now. They have always eagerly anticipated her daily visits or weekend stays at our house when we go away. While Pete was always willing to get up and go for a stroll regardless of the weather, Annie could sometimes be a bit of a chore, but one that Rosemary has always been able to handle with finesse, a gentle tug on the leash, and a few select words said with the right emphasis. Our Puppies love their “Aunt” Rosemary and so do we, as well as trusting her completely with our precious Pups.

I have been using K9 Nirvana for over a year now and cannot be more pleased. I have 4 elderly cats that Rosemary watches while I am on vacation and they all love her. She always leaves detailed notes about their "antics". I can take a vacation and not worry at all- I know the cats are in good hands and will be well cared for. Since my cats are ages 15-19, I also have the piece of mind that if one becomes ill while I am away that she will get them the care they need. I also have 2 young Golden Retrievers that she walks twice weekly- they can be a little unruly and she does a great job with them and has been teaching them proper manners on a leash. K9 Nirvana is great!!!!

We have a 6 month old, 110 pound, great dane puppy named Astro. Karen at K9 Nirvana has been walking our boy twice a day for a couple of months now. Karen and Rosemary ROCK! Astro loves them. We love their flexibility, dependability, and the compassion they have for our animals. They leave us detailed notes for each visit so I know exactly what's happened each day. They truly love animals, and they are responsible and knowledgeable. I highly recommend them.

K9 Nirvana is a wonderful company. We use their dog walking services and feel that we get a very personal experience. Rosemary (our dog walker) really understands our dogs and we trust her with access to our home. We have one dog who can be a little stubborn in getting out of the house and she knows how to handle him well. We have two other dogs with medical issues and she has been very attention to their needs. We LOVE K9 Nirvana and would would highly recommend them.

I was fortunate enough to find K9 Nirvana before I brought my 8 week old golden retriever home. Rosemary has cared and nurtured both Remington and myself for 8 months. To refer to K9 Nirana as just a dog walking and pet sitting service is not an accurate reflection of their value. Rosemary is an integral part of our family. Make sure she and her team are a part of yours.

Hale & Remi, Centreville, VA


We have used K9 Nirvana on 3 vacations so far. Rosemary is very quick to respond to email sitting requests. Our cats love Jenn. She takes great care of them and leaves us detailed notes of what their visits were like. We don't worry at all and can fully enjoy our vacations knowing K9 Nirvana is taking excellent care of our furry family members!! Highly recommend K9 Nirvana!!

Rosemary has been coming to take care of my 4 kitties since January of 2012 and I could not be happier with the service she provides. It is nice to leave on vacation and know that my cats are in good hands and will be well cared for. Rosemary always leaves litttle notes about the gang during her visit. I would highly recommend K9Nirvana for anyone looking for a reliable sitter for their dog or cat.

Max & Franklin

I recently moved to Centreville and found Rosemary through a web search. I consider myself to be very lucky because she is WONDERFUL! She is trustworthy, compassionate, and very generous with her time and affection. My three cats, Max, Chloe, and Franklin, all like Rosemary and she even agreed to care for my three foster kittens. Moving away from my former pet-sitter was one of my biggest concerns but I worried needlessly...I encourage anyone considering hiring a pet-sitter to talk with Rosemary. She is a deeply caring individual and knowing she is taking care of my cats gives me great peace of mind.

K9 Nirvana Pet Care has been the perfect solution for our family's busy schedule. We have events and vacations pop up unexpectedly all the time and they are always willing to accommodate. Jet (Schnoodle puppy) loves when Rosemary comes to visit. The neighbors have even commented that they see Rosemary giving Jet plenty of play time and proper attention. We feel very confident in leaving our pet with K9 Nirvana.

Waya & Schuyler

Since our work schedules were changing and not allowing us to be home with the pets during the day, we contacted Rosemary at K9 Nirvana. It has been very comforting to know that Waya and Schuyler are in such good hands while we are at work. In addition to walking the dogs and giving them treats, Rosemary gives our cats treats, too. This makes for very happy pets and happy pet owners. Thank you!!!

Right after we brought Henry, our pug puppy, home, we began to search for someone who could walk him during the day while we work. Within a day, Rosemary and Jenn came to our home to meet Henry and discuss the best timing for his walks. Henry must really love his walks with Jenn because he is a very good boy for us when we get home. Jenn leaves great, detailed notes about her visits with Henry and contacts us if anything seems unusual. Rosemary is incredibly quick at responding to questions and requests for walks outside of Henry's normal schedule. Henry is definitely in good hands with K9 Nirvana!

Jessica & Chris C., Burke, VA


Rosemary and Jenn have been a God send! We are able to work and travel and know that Nevada is in the best of care! Thank you to K9nirvana! They have made our lives and Nevada's life a very happy one!

Zeus & Honey

Rosemary's care for our two dogs was more than we could have imagined. Our pets were lovingly cared for and happy to be at home while we were away. Honey and Zeus were treated like pampered pets. We would recommend her to anyone looking for loving care for their pets, and the ease of mind when on vacation.

Rosemary has been taking care of our cats for 4+ years and whenever we needed her to tend to our 'extended family', she was there for us. Our cats are typically shy around other people, but Rosemary has a way of winning their confidence and allowing her to give them love and affection. Thanks Rosemary for being there for our family when we cannot.

With the sudden departure of our beloved Pete to the Rainbow Bridge, Lily has come into our little family and into Rosemary’s care along with Annie. Amusingly, Annie is now “the good one” as Lily has a few issues with other dogs that will require some serious work. Rosemary has been great working with us and our Pup’s trainer to help teach Lily the manners and behaviors she must learn in order to become a proper young lady. We have every confidence in Rosemary’s ability to handle our new found “problem child” with training and love.

Bill and Deb Haegele, Centreville, VA


For the past several years, Rosemary has provided exceptional vacation and overnight care for our dog Zoe. What a relief to be able to take a trip and know that Zoe was happy and well cared for! Rosemary is caring and dependable and was always flexible to our aging dog’s changing needs. We are grateful for the love and very special care that Rosemary gave to Zoe and highly recommend her as a companion to your pet.

Rosemary is a wonderful pet sitter for our 3 year old Chocolate Labrador Oso. She has been taking great care of our “little boy” since he was 4 months old and has become such an important part of our family. Oso gets ready for Rosemary’s arrival during the days she walks him by waiting patiently for her by the door. I just have to say “Rosemary is coming” and he flips out wagging that big tail of his waiting for his best bud. Now with my husband over seas a lot and a 20 month old to keep me busy, I look forward to Rosemary getting our boy out for his long walk in hopes he’ll come back ready to nap! Thank you for everything Rosemary! We could not think of a better person to take care of our hairy boy!

Missy & Schooner

We love you and wanted to share our thoughts about K9 Nirvana with you!

Since adopting Ed and Mary Ann a few years back we’ve been looking for the perfect pet sitter service, friendly, warm, caring people who understand our different needs and can accommodate our desires daily and during times of special requirements! We’ve found that with you at K9 Nirvana!

As you know, I am over 13 years old this year, and things don’t work in my dog’s body like they used to…some days when it is hot, my black coat absorbs lots of sun and I get hot easily which tires me and makes me walk slower than Schooner; other days, my arthritis acts up and I have trouble navigating the stairs, also forcing you and Schooner to go slower while I scale the steps indoors or outside, and I know that’s inconvenient for Schooner, but your walks always accept my limits or constraints on those “slow” days to make the walks fun and smooth!

Schooner offered that he loves our walks each day in Centreville with you in general! He appreciates that you let him “attack” you with his favorite toy each day on arrival at our house, accepting his offer to play, even though you’re there for a purpose! He especially likes that you let him be “almost-Alpha” and lead the mini-pack in walks, letting him strut out front leading the way…and visiting with our neighborhood 4-legged friends on occasion! Getting a cookie-snack at the end of each walk is a highlight of each day for Schooner and me when we get home, rain or shine!

When Mom and Dad had to be away one evening for an emergency, Dad called and you agreed to walk us and feed us on no-notice! That was super, and put me and Schooner at-ease knowing you were there for us! We try (sometimes in vain) to train Ed and Mary Ann but know if they don’t do as we like, we can always count on you Rosemary to be there for us in time of need, only a phone-call or text message-away! Rain or shine, even in the winter blizzards, you come to our home where we let Ed & Mary Ann stay, and ensure our daily social walks and feeding when required! You always ensure our home is secure on departure, and that we have fresh water if required…everything is perfect with you and we’re glad you are our professional pet sitter!

We love you K9 Nirvana!

Seamus & Sunny

Our basset hounds adore Rosemary! Although, they get suitcase anxiety whenever they see us leave, they know that Rosemary will be there for them. Our Seamus has had some serious health issues and Rosemary is always on top of things being careful about his diet and making sure he doesn't eat things on his walks. She's stayed at our home weeks on end and we know that our kids are being well taken care of as well as our home!

Mary Lee & Andy Cerillo, Centreville, Va

Indy & Bandit

Rosemary does a great job taking care of our boys! Our Indy is an insulin-dependent diabetic that requires extra special care. We know that is no easy task but you do such a fabulous job. The boys are always happy and healthy when we return home! Since these boys mean a lot to us, we want to know they are in good, loving hands when we are not able to take them with us! Rosemary does just that so we can enjoy ourselves & relax! Thanks so much!

Robin & Rick Prausa, Centreville, Va


Rosemary has been taking care of Calli for over 3 years. It is so comforting to know that Calli has a break in her day with someone who really cares about her and knows her so well. Rosemary is great with Calli! Calli tells me: “I look forward to my walks with Rosemary. It makes the time my mom’s at work go by much more quickly & we always have a lot of fun!”
