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.

Dog Walking in Glen Echo

About 3 miles southwest of Bethesda, and 8 miles northwest of Washington, DC, Glen Echo is a tiny town nestled on a bend of the Potomac River. It is known for its involvement in the Chautauqua movement, and for being the residence of American Red Cross founder Clara Barton in her later years. There are no veterinary hospitals in Glen Echo, but dog parents can still travel around town worry-free as the nearest facility is only a mile away in nearby Cabin John.

One of the town's most popular destinations, Glen Echo Park, has been serving the community for over 120 years. A former national Chautauqua and amusement park, it is now a national park offering cultural and recreational activities all year round. As you take your pup for a leisurely stroll around the park, you will walk past several historic structures, including the Spanish Ballroom, Dentzel Carousel, and Bumper Car Pavilion.

Not far from Glen Echo Park is the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal Lock 7, which serves as one of the many access points to the 185-mile historic towpath. Bring your best friend along for a relaxing walk along the Potomac River, and remember to keep them on a 6-foot leash at all times.

A pawsome small-town adventure awaits you and your furry pal in Glen Echo!

Being in the Potomac Palisades Conservation Park will make you feel like you're out in the country, even though it's only 1.6 miles from Glen Echo. Situated on the banks of the Potomac River in neighboring Bethesda, this 5-acre park remains undeveloped since it is dedicated to environmental preservation. You and Fido can access the Potomac Palisades at the end of a residential street. Enjoy the natural environment and breathe in the fresh air as you take a leashed walk along the river. Because the park is home to various wildlife, you and your pup may encounter squirrels, hawks, raccoons, and other animals while you're there.
