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.

Dog Walking in Gaithersburg

Gaithersburg is technically located in the Montgomery County in Maryland. Established in 1878, the city has grown from an agrarian town to a major regional location for high-technology companies. Their flag features a 295-year-old forest oak tree that, unfortunately, crashed down in 1997 due to a rainstorm. The tree served as an inspiration to the city’s logo.

Green Park Dog Exercise Area is open for Gaithersburg residents with licensed dogs. This is an off-leash park that is separated into two sections - an upper level with bluestone dust-based ground cover and a lower level that is covered with grass. There are benches for you to use and water stations for your pup. Fill your tummy with delight at Union Jack’s. Union Jack's is Montgomery County’s British Style pub and restaurant. They serve mouthwatering food for lunch and dinner. They also have different kinds of draft beer. There is an outdoor dining area on the left, and the right side is a huge patio area where dogs of all sizes are welcome.

Pets can also model citizens. Gaithersburg held a Citizen Pet Photo Contest for its residents in August of 2014. Pet owners only needed to submit a photo of their lovely pets – dogs, cats, birds, etc. Voting took place in the city’s official Facebook page. Luke, Lily, and Blackjack received the most number of “likes” in the city’s Facebook Page and were awarded Gaithersburg’s Citizen Pet of the Year.
