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 My name is Jason. I currently have 3 dogs myself ( A girl pitbull and two male yorkies *brothers* ) my pitbull was given to me after losing one of my Yorkies who was a girl named Precious while trying to have puppies. After her passing I found myself learning that I had a love for dogs that has no words. Since then me and my girlfriend have considered the idea of becoming foster dog owners so before bringing another dog into our blended family we wanted to share some of the love and affection with others dogs. I can't wait to get to know your dogs and I promise to give them all the love and attention that they deserve throughout the time they are in my possession.

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!
