ROCKVILLE, Md. (WUSA9) -- In the fall of 2015, Mark and Yumi Klionsky decided to visit Paris. They coordinated flights and looked for a place to board their toy poodles - Peanut and Pumpkin.
A friend recommended Life of Riley. It's a family owned business that describes itself as "boutique pet care"- offering services like doggie daycare, grooming, and doggie hotel suites.
"It doesn't look like a kennel. I mean they've got these fancy suites with curtains and fancy cushions," Mark Klionsky said.
Ratings on Yelp and Facebook were stellar and the Klionsky saw the majority of reviewers said they loved sending their pets there.
The Klionskys say they only had one concern: big dogs.
"Peanut is very tiny. She was less than five pounds," Yumi Klionsky said. "She is afraid of big dogs."
