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 love animals and especially dogs! I grew up with a beagle and have been walking dogs for neighbors and family friends since I was in middle school. 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!

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 Crofton

Crofton is a great location for anyone who has to commute to any of three great cities: Washington, D.C., Annapolis, and Baltimore. This community manages to preserve its small town charm even in the face of encroaching urban life. It’s an amazing place to live or take a break with your dog by your side. Crofton has two full service veterinary clinics to see to your dog’s every ache and bark!

Crofton Park is the best place to take your dog in Crofton. This park has everything! The pond water feature regularly attracts ducks and geese for feeding (and sniffing from a distance!) There is also a nice path through the park that runs around the pond and through a wooded area. There are picnic tables and everything you need to spend a day soaking up the Crofton atmosphere. Dogs should be leashed in Crofton Park.

Wrap up your day with your pup with a trip to Crofton’s very own Fractured Prune Doughnuts! This fun eatery has made to order donuts, allowing you to create your favorite from over thirty topping options! They also have pet friendly tables outside so you and your pup can enjoy a treat together.

Arrowhead Farms Estates in Gambrills is a five minute drive from the heart of Crofton. This neighborhood has plenty of open space, leading to a low population density and room to roam! Bell Branch Dog Park is a must-see destination for the area! It keeps it simple, but really delivers. This woofderful park has plenty of fully fenced in open space for your pup to run. There are separate areas for large and small dogs. Make sure you bring a toy or two with you, since the park is light on play equipment--the biggest draw for most dogs is... other dogs!

Whitemarsh Park in neighboring Bowie’s Somerset district is a great place to take the whole family, and is only eight minutes from downtown Crofton! There’s an excellent playground and picnic area for family reunions and lunches in nature. Your dog is probably going to be more fond of the walking trails! Whitemarsh Park features nature trails that wind in and out of the woods and through a few small water features. Your dog does have to stay on leash in this park, but with the size of this well-manicured park, there is still enough space to tire him out. Bring your own water bowl to make use of the fountains!

Hop in the car and drive just 13 minutes east to Saddlebrook in Bowie, to the Saddlebrook East Community Park. This park is a fantastic community focal point. It has a lot of open space, and there are sports fields for soccer and other sports. The park is popular for league teams, so if your shy dog prefers fewer crowds, you may want to avoid early weekends or when children get out of school. The rest of the park is open green space, and short walking paths connecting the various areas. Your leashed dog is welcome to join you in Saddlebrook East Community Park.

Odenton’s Settler’s View neighborhood is a 14 minute drive from Crofton. It’s more than worth it, however, if you want to tire your dog out with walking trails! Head to GORC Park, where Odenton’s kids can enjoy a wide variety of sports. There’s plenty of room to walk around the sports fields, but the park also features dedicated walking paths. Keep your dogs on leash, as you may have to share the road with joggers, cyclists, and other dogs! Drinking fountains are few and far between on the trails, so you should bring your own water and a doggie bowl to share with your pup.

Hop in the car and head 17 minutes down to the road to the Fairwood Community Park in South Bowie! This is a residential park in a residential area, and the main emphasis of the park is a large playground for kids! You and your dog can get in your exercise by walking laps of the play area or the park as a whole. If your dog doesn't love crowds, this could be a tough sell. The park is very open, so you're not likely to be able to feel like you've slipped away. Dogs who love to people watch will be fascinated your entire trip!
