Hi, I'm Bil! I have lived in the DC/Metro area all my life, and I grew at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains with an incredible Yellow Lab named Lucky. Over the years I have worked with various animal shelters, fostering and rescue programs, and currently I am the proud father of 2 extraordinary rescue pups - Ted, a 5 yr old Pit/Boxer mix, and Dae, a 2 yr old German Shepherd. I enjoy meeting new dogs and learning all of their unique characteristics and personality traits. Your dogs happiness, safety and comfort are my first priority. I will give your dog the care and attention they deserve, and provide a pleasant (and fun) experience for them!

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 grew up with dogs. I currently have two little fur babies of my own whom I love to death. When I was in highschool I took care of the neighborhood pets for income. While in grad school in California I was employed by a petsitting program through our student union. I’ve been around animals all my life and I’m very familiar and confident in handling all sizes, temperaments, and breeds.

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.

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!

Dog Walking in East Riverdale

East Riverdale is a small town that was once a part of Riverdale Park next door. Today, East Riverdale is a close suburban center, providing a residential community for people who work in the surrounding areas. This cozy, community focused area puts its human and canine citizens first, resulting in high quality of life and a great place to visit.


Don’t let the lack of East Riverdale vets worry you; the close proximity to Riverdale Park puts five vets within a fifteen minute drive of East Riverdale, so your pet’s care will never be compromised.


East Riverdale has plenty to explore close to home as well, with local parks perfect for leashed walks, like Fletchers Field. This park consists of a large, grassy open area that’s great for walking and enjoying the sunshine. Your dog will love joining you at the outdoor tables. There is a large, covered area with plenty of picnic tables for resting and enjoying. You can also walk the field; doing a brisk lap or two should be enough exercise for a morning or evening stroll unless your dog has a lot more energy than most!


East Riverdale is a great place to bring your dog for fun, exercise, and spending quality time together.
