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!

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.
