Hi, I'm Bil! I have lived in the DC/Metro area all my life, and I grew at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains with an incredible Yellow Lab named Lucky. Over the years I have worked with various animal shelters, fostering and rescue programs, and currently I am the proud father of 2 extraordinary rescue pups - Ted, a 5 yr old Pit/Boxer mix, and Dae, a 2 yr old German Shepherd. I enjoy meeting new dogs and learning all of their unique characteristics and personality traits. Your dogs happiness, safety and comfort are my first priority. I will give your dog the care and attention they deserve, and provide a pleasant (and fun) experience for them!

I grew up with dogs. I currently have two little fur babies of my own whom I love to death. When I was in highschool I took care of the neighborhood pets for income. While in grad school in California I was employed by a petsitting program through our student union. I’ve been around animals all my life and I’m very familiar and confident in handling all sizes, temperaments, and breeds.

Whether it's a walk around the neighborhood or taking a trip to the dog park, I'm always looking forward to my walks. I have experience with walking 50 different breeds of all sizes, and it's a pleasure meeting new pups. The more the merrier. The time I get to spend with a dog, young or not so young, small or not so small, makes the day that much better.

Hello, I'm Tiffany! I started dog walking and sitting around 10 years ago and have been in love with animals all my life! I just moved back from NC where I was a Veterinary Assistant for a year and loved it. Being a Vet Assistant I have experience with dogs of all sizes and understand the value and importance of excellent animal care and health. As I return back to the DMV area it is my hope to pursue my passion of Art/Entrepreneurship while still making caring for animals a priority in my life! I would love the opportunity to care for your pet giving them the love, fun and exercise that you expect and they deserve! I will make sure that your Wag! experience is an amazing one!

I'm onto a new career and am a nursing student. I would love to walk and take care of your pup. I’ve been walking dogs for a few years now, and I can’t imagine not interacting with them frequently! I have a three year old beagle who we rescued in 2018. He’s gone through extensive training, so I have an array of knowledge about handling various types of dogs. I can take your dog out for a hustle if s/he is high energy, or I can let him/her sniff around and enjoy life. I’m flexible!

The bond between humans and their pets is undeniable. Everyday spent with your pet is a day best lived. I am luck enough to have lived most of my life with dogs in my life, so I know how important the relationship between a human and their pet is. I can say as a fellow pet owner, I will do my best to ensure that every pet that is under my supervision will be treated like one of my own, with safety and happiness always being the number one priority.

Dog Walking in Brandywine

Peaceful, diverse and family-friendly, Brandywine, MD has much more to offer than simply being a thirty-minute drive from DC. Brandywine got its name from the Battle of Brandywine in the Revolutionary War, and this old railway town is chock full of history. No fewer than eighteen sites in this small town are on the National Register of Historic Places! 

These days, though, Brandywine is mostly known as a sleepy commuter suburb with a tight-knit community and a small-town, neighborly feel. You won’t find a veterinary practice in town, unfortunately, but you’ll find a choice of clinics to take care of your buddy, as well as emergency services in nearby Waldorf.

There’s no designated dog park in Brandywine, but you and your pooch are still sure to sniff out something to do! North Keys Community Park is a lovely spot for a leashed walk, and if you two like hiking, you’re in luck -- the town’s just a stone’s throw away from state parks, state forests, and other furrifically fur-friendly hiking options. And if your four-legged pal longs to run off-leash, don’t worry -- you’ll find plenty of pawesome dog parks in the surrounding area!

Cedarville State Forest sits right on the southern edge of Brandywine, so it’d be a huge faux paw not to check it out! This vast state park is a popular spot for camping, and it’s easy to see why -- you could spend days or weeks exploring the wilderness here. You’ll find miles upon miles of trails for you and your pooch to sniff and explore -- and there’s one for every ability, from the fittest furry friends to the less athletic among us. Your pooch will need to be leashed, of course, and remember to bring your own bags and water!

White Plains Dog Park is a real mutts-visit! There’s plenty of room here for your fur-ball to leap about and burn off some excess energy, and there’s a separate area for small dogs, too, so your pooch can play and socialize no matter their size! Not only that, but the park is well-shaded -- your pup can run around to their heart’s content without you worrying about them overheating in the summer sun. Bags are provided, but keep in mind that water is not available in winter -- it’s shut off to prevent the pipes from freezing, so you’ll need to bring your own bottle during the colder months.

Make no bones about it -- your pooch will love a trip to the dog park at Turkey Hill Park in La Plata! There’s plenty of space in both the small and large dog areas for a spirited game of catch or tug-of-war, and tired owners are sure to appreciate the benches. Bags are provided, but unlike the park at White Plains, there’s no water at all. Keep in mind as well that the surface is mostly grass -- although your pup’s paws might appreciate it, it’s a good idea to bring a towel in case your buddy gets muddy!

Cultured canines might get a kick out of a visit to Fort Washington! At one point, Fort Washington was the only fort defending DC, and it was in use from the War of 1812 until World War II. Your pooch is welcome to wander the bastions of the old fort with you, but they might be a little more interested in the trails! There’s a three-mile or so loop that takes in most of the landmarks and boasts fantastic views of the Potomac River besides. Entrance is three dollars from May to October, and free through the rest of the year.

With Brandywine so close to Washington DC, you’d be barking mad not to drive up and take in some history! Luckily, wagging tails are welcome on the National Mall and in the Memorial Gardens, as long as they’re kept on-leash. Your pooch can’t go right up to all the monuments though, so you might need to take some in from a bit of a distance. The big exception to this rule is the FDR memorial, where thousands of pooches a year are photographed next to the statue of the president’s Scottie terrier, Fala.
