“It was me. I let the dogs out.”

I'm a lifetime animal lover and have two cats but my lifestyle is too active for a dog of my own. I know life gets in the way sometimes so I will be there to give all the love and attention your doggos deserve when you're unavailable. I work for the government helping scientific research all over the world and have many hobbies including reading, dancing, weightlifting, and racing cars.

Hi, I'm Sandy! I live in Montgomery Village, MD, and will be walking dogs in the Gaithersburg/Rockville/Germantown area. I've been a volunteer at the MDSPCA for 22 years, so I have a LOT of experience with dogs. I've volunteered in the kennel, wellness clinic, spay/neuter clinic, and I currently volunteer in the exam room, so I've handled all kinds of dogs in all kinds of situations, and I know how to keep them calm and remove stress from new situations.

“Full time walker. Any dog. Any weather.”

Dog walking is my life! I can read dogs very well and quickly gain their trust and obedience. I’m great with high energy dogs, stubborn dogs, dogs that pull, dogs that snap, escape artists, dogs with dominance issues, dogs with triggers, handling multiple dogs at once and any other scenario concerning safety. I’m gentle, affectionate, attentive, protective, and caring and will provide the perfect experience no matter your dog’s size, breed, or temperament. Thanks for choosing me as your walker!

Dog Walking in Boyds

The unincorporated community of Boyds in rural Montgomery County is a unique place  to find some peace and quiet with your pup, with picturesque views of Little Seneca Lake. Fairly remote from Washington, D.C. (about 20 miles north), the place is surrounded by multiple recreation areas and a few major cities such as Germantown and Gaithersburg, which are home to pet-friendly eateries, shops, and about 14 veterinary clinics combined.

Black Hill Regional Dog Park, located within Black Hill Regional Park, is a nice spot for dog owners in Boyds. The dog park is a fenced, off-leash extension of the 2,200-acre park, which features multi-purpose nature trails and a host of water activities on Little Seneca Lake. Leashed dogs are welcome to explore the entire park, but owners are responsible for cleaning up after their pooches.

About 5 minutes to the south of Boyds, Germantown should be your first destination for more pet-friendly opportunities and fun! Ridge Road Recreational Dog Park is a cool spot to stretch your legs, socialize with puppy peers, and treat Fido to a doggie dinner date! Several Germantown restaurants welcome canine customers, including Potbelly Sandwich Shop, offering soups, salads, and amazing sandwiches!
