I’m Juli. I have been walking dogs for over ten years and as a pet parent I know we all want the best possible care for our pets. As someone with experience with all sizes and many breeds, I understand all dogs require different approaches with the same level of care. Dogs are not just pets, they are family. I hope to be there to lend a hand in taking care of your furry family members.

I've volunteered for the Hawaiian humane society and I donate to ASPCA monthly. I can’t wait to take care of, walk or sit with your babies. Feel free to contact me for questions.

Duke Street Dog Park is approximately 16 miles away from Capitol Heights, and this large, fenced park has lots of things to offer you and Fido! Just make sure you bring your own water, since none is available in the park. There are, however, plenty of toys to play with, as well as a tall and secure fence just in case the big breeds try to join the small puppers. Locals note that parking can be hard to find, though. You'll also have to bring your own poop baggies for cleaning up after your pup. Otherwise, get ready to have a furrific day playing with the local pups here!

Cabin John Dog Park is a little bit further away from the previously mentioned parks, but the trip is totally worth it! Located in North Potomac, around 28 miles away from Capitol Heights, this park offers separate areas for small and large dogs. There's also plenty of shade at this park, making it the pawfect place to play on a hot day! The ground is mulch, which is great for your pup's paws, but maybe not so great for your car seats. Water and waste bags are provided in the park, so all you have to bring is plenty of energy to play. Outside of the fenced area, you'll find trails that you can walk on if you prefer a leashed experience.
