The Board Hound at 133 South Peyton Street in Old Town is hoping to live up to its name as a place to board dogs.

The facility offers training services and training services for canines, but according to an application, it’s hoping to expand to offer overnight dog care.

“At present time, 133 S Peyon Street is in accordance with the City of Alexandria and allowed to operate as a dog daycare,” the application said. “Within the scope of current permissions it is not clear if the business can allow overnight accommodations for the dogs in our care.”

The change would result in some staffing adjustments, but the application notes that all dogs and employees would remain inside the building overnight.

The proposal is heading to the Planning Commission on June 6.

“We would like to begin offering this service,” the application said.

The Alexandria location is one of two Board Hounds, with another set up in nearby Shirlington.

The Board Hound is one of several dog care facilities that’s popped up in the area. Alexandria has a reputation for being a dog-friendly city, a reputation ALXnow readers tended to agree with.
