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!

Dog Walking in Hillcrest Heights

Hillcrest Heights is a medium-sized town on the border of Maryland and the District of Columbia. There’s a veterinarian just 4 minutes from the center of town, so you can rest easy knowing that your pup will be in good hands here.

Unfortunately, there are not many other dog-friendly places within the town of Hillcrest Heights, but around 10 miles away in Alexandria, VA, you’ll find many adventures for the whole family!

The Lost Dog Cafe in Alexandria is a good place to enjoy one of 50 gourmet sandwiches and contribute to a good cause -- the Lost Dog and Cat Foundation, to be exact -- at the same time! This eatery has dog-friendly outdoor seating. If you’re feeling more adventurous, check out the award winning Bastille! Their specialty is French cuisine and they have outdoor seating where dogs are welcome.

Duke Street Dog Park is a large, fenced-in, off-leash park that has sections for both large and small dogs. The area is grassy, but has no water fountains, so bring your own water.

If you feel like indulging your inner sweet tooth, check out The Dairy Godmother. Not only do they have a wide variety of ice creams and custards for you, but they also have puppy pops!

Looking to learn some history? Look no further than Mount Vernon! Your canine companion can accompany you as you visit George Washington's tomb, the stables, the gardens, and dozens of other outdoor places. Pets are not allowed in historical buildings and must be leashed at all times.

Looking for a trail? Mount Vernon Trail could just be it. This trail is made up of asphalt and boardwalk and is 18 miles. Dogs must be leashed on this trail.

Whether you’re looking to hike, eat, or explore with your pup, you’ll never be far from dog-friendly fun in Hillcrest Heights!
