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!

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.

Dog Walking in College Park

College Park, Maryland, perhaps best known for being home to the University of Maryland’s Colle Park campus, is a hustlin’ and bustlin’ city that shouldn’t be overlooked. With many different shopping centers, restaurants, and recreational venues, there’s always something to do in this city that falls just about halfway between Washington, D.C., and Baltimore. That’s no surprise, though; College Park has been in the works for development since way back in 1889, when it was a stop on the railroad tracks.

If you’re looking for a great place to spend some time with any canine companions you might have, College Park is great for them, too! College Park has a few different veterinarian clinics, so if one doesn’t work with your schedule, the other might; one even has someone on-call around the clock, ensuring that you can get care for your dog during any emergencies. There are also plenty of places to go for a walk with Fido; downtown College Park has plenty of wide sidewalks where you’re sure to see plenty of smiling faces directed at your dog. There are also a few dog-friendly restaurants in town. College Park is a great place for both you and your pooch!

If you and your dog love being active or are looking for somewhere to get started, head to College Park’s Berwyn Heights neighborhood! This neighborhood is home to Indian Creek Trail. Although this trail is relatively short at 1.5 miles, it’s the perfect place for a brisk walk through nature. There’s plenty of shade, meaning this park stays a bit cooler than other nearby trails. Bring some water, anyway; it’s always a good idea for you and your four-legged friend to stay hydrated! A leash is required, and you’ll want to bring along some waste bags.

On the southern side of College Park is the Riverdale Gardens neighborhood, which is home to an access point for the Northeast Branch Trail. This 3.5-mile long trail is mostly paved, so it isn’t too hard for hikers of any proficiency to use. Fido can join you on this trail, as long as he stays on a leash the entire time. Northeast Branch Trail is heavily used by bicyclists, so it might be a good idea to keep your dog on a short leash. You’ll need to bring along waste disposal bags.

This fenced in, off-leash dog park has play equipment for dogs, but you’re welcome to bring along your dog’s favorite toy.

Although it’s a twenty-minute drive from College Park to Silver Spring, your dog will certainly think it’s worth it if you take him to the city’s Ellsworth Urban Dog Park! This spacious dog park has two separate areas; one is for dogs over twenty pounds, while the other is for dogs under twenty pounds. Each section includes a doggy drinking fountain, trash bins, and a hose to give your dog a quick rinse if he gets too dirty while playing with his new fur-riends! You might want to bring along some waste bags, as the park sometimes runs out.
