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've been very fortunate to grow up with dogs. My first dog was a golden retriever named Murphy. I learned a lot about how to take care of dogs when I was a kid because of Murphy. And more importantly, I had a lot of fun! I now have a black lab named Hon. She recently turned 11, but still acts like a puppy .

Hi my name is Hunter! I'm an animal lover and pet owner myself. I know our pets are family and how important it is to make sure they're taken care of. I've had dogs in my home since as long as I can remember and know how to give them the love and respect they deserve. I've worked office jobs and long hour days, so I understand the need for a reliable person to be there. I would be happy and honored to get to care for your pup, big or small, old or young!

Dog Walking in Elkridge

Elkridge is a community in Howard County, Maryland, and it's the oldest settlement in the county, dating back to 1733. This is evident in the many historical buildings and churches in Elkridge, including Melville Church on Furnace Avenue. Its original building was the first Methodist church built in 1772. The Lawyers Hill Historic District is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Another fabulous historical site in Elkridge is The Thomas Viaduct. It is the oldest multiple-arched, curved stone railroad bridge in the world. The very first telegraph message that traveled from Washington, D.C. to Baltimore was wired across this bridge.

Elkridge has a wide range of recreational areas for you and your pet to enjoy. Patapsco Valley State Park runs along the Patapsco River in North Elkridge, and Belmont Manor and Historic Park is home to Belmont Manor – built in 1738 – which sits on 68 acres of rolling hills that include trails and extensive gardens and also serves afternoon tea.

And if you’re looking for dog-friendly places to stay, there are plenty of them in nearby Baltimore, including La Quinta Inn & Suites, and the Sheraton Inner Harbor Hotel, which is located right on the water.
