Hi,My name is Lu and I love dogs. I've developed a fondness for cats over the years, but there is no question that I am a dog person. They just fill my heart with a joy that hardly any other category of beings in the world can. Dogs have been a part of my family for most of my life and, while I do not yet have one of my own as an adult, I spend plenty of time with my sisters' and mom's dogs. I have gone on countless walks with the dogs in my life, and enjoyed almost all of them tremendously. I also have experience feeding, bathing, and brushing them. I'm new to the DMV area and am on the lookout for new friends, human and canine alike.Thanks!

I've been living with animals my entire life. Most recently, with Reyka, a six-year-old Staffordshire terrier. I'm retired and she is my constant companion - we're like Red and Rover, from the comics. We walk the CA trails, and hike county and state parks. Wincopin is a favorite. Last summer I started volunteering at Howard County Animal Control, the local dog and cat shelter. I love it. I exercise and socialize the dog and cats so they're better prepared for their forever home. I've worked with literally hundreds of dogs of all sizes. More than one person has said "that dog really loves you" to me. It is so rewarding to help a family pick out a new pet and watch as they take it home. I have experience with a professional dog walking service. They taught me to do the little things - refilling water, cleaning up small messes even if I didn't make them, turning on/off lights to welcome you home, etc. I can scoop/change cat litter. I can give insulin shots to dogs and cats.

Dog Walking in Frederick

Does your neighbor’s sweet Great Dane scare the living daylights out of your Toy Poodle? Perhaps your German Shepherd desperately wants a friend, but the neighborhood Corgis just aren’t comfortable around such a tall beast? Then it’s time to visit Ballenger Creek Dog Park. This dog park has separate fenced-in areas for large and small breeds, eliminating the tension between size-differing breeds. What’s even better? You don’t have to empty your pocket book to enter – it’s free! – and your dog can play from the time the sun comes up until the time the first-night star peeps out over the horizon.

If you’re looking for a family-oriented park, wander on over to Baker Park. Complete with an amphitheater, dog park, seasonal pool, pond, stream, swinging bridge, and two play areas, Baker Park has everything for a picturesque family day. Enjoy in a homemade picnic lunch under Baker Park’s big shade trees, splash around in the pool, and even bring Fido along for a day of fun – he’ll enjoy frolicking about on such a gorgeous lawn! During the summertime, there are many events that claim Baker Park as their home, including 4th of July fireworks, concerts, and Dog Days. With something for every family member, Baker Park is sure to become your favorite outdoor paradise.

Located on North Bentz Street is the City of Frederick Dog Park. This dog is completely fenced in, and all dogs are welcome as long as they are registered and are not aggressive. Aggressive behavior is not tolerated, and owners are responsible for their dogs at all times. Dogs without purple city tags on their collars will not be allowed within the gate.
