Hi, I'm Demetrius! What can I say, I LOVE DOGS...I mean I love all animals but dogs are just the top! I've had dogs my entire life, from little fluffy white dogs to muscle bound pit-bulls. My most recent, an English Bulldog named Hollywood, unfortunately passed after 11 amazing years and I'm without a pooch for the moment. I hope you allow me the pleasure of taking care of your important family member while you are at work or away and I will treat him or her as if they were my own!

I have also done pet sitting where I stayed at an owner's house and was completely responsible for their pet's care while they were away. I'm willing to do whatever it takes to make sure you and your dog are satisfied!

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 Burtonsville

Although the area was first settled in the colonial period, Burtonsville, Maryland was officially founded in 1825. Burtonsville is named after Isaac Burton, who bought all the land in the community. Today, Burtonsville annually holds a celebration for Isaac Burton called “Burtonsville Day.” The festivities include carnival games and a petting zoo, and the day ends with a parade.

Despite being such a small community, Burtonsville is surprisingly dog-friendly! The town is home to four different restaurants where your chow-hound can dine with you. One of these restaurants is Squisito Pizza and Pasta, where you can eat – you guessed it – delicious pizza and pasta! Fido can join you on the patio. There are a couple of veterinarian clinics located in Burtonsville, so care for your sick or injured dog is never too far away. 

If you’re looking for a dog park, though, you’ll have to go for a drive. You won’t have to venture too far away, though; there are several options within 20 miles of Burtonsville, and your dog will certainly thank you for making the trek. If you’re looking for a fun time with a dash of history, make sure to visit Burtonsville, Maryland!
