“Full time. Any dog. Any weather. Extended hours :)”

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!

Hi! My name is Jessyka. I have worked with dogs in various capacities my whole life, and professionally since June of 2017. For six years I cared for Lily, a Boxer/Pit mix with a TON of energy. She had severe separation anxiety and stranger aggression so I specialize in dogs with difficult behaviors. I look forward to meeting you and your puppy!

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!
