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.

Hello, I'm Tiffany! I started dog walking and sitting around 10 years ago and have been in love with animals all my life! I just moved back from NC where I was a Veterinary Assistant for a year and loved it. Being a Vet Assistant I have experience with dogs of all sizes and understand the value and importance of excellent animal care and health. As I return back to the DMV area it is my hope to pursue my passion of Art/Entrepreneurship while still making caring for animals a priority in my life! I would love the opportunity to care for your pet giving them the love, fun and exercise that you expect and they deserve! I will make sure that your Wag! experience is an amazing one!

I'm onto a new career and am a nursing student. I would love to walk and take care of your pup. I’ve been walking dogs for a few years now, and I can’t imagine not interacting with them frequently! I have a three year old beagle who we rescued in 2018. He’s gone through extensive training, so I have an array of knowledge about handling various types of dogs. I can take your dog out for a hustle if s/he is high energy, or I can let him/her sniff around and enjoy life. I’m flexible!

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!
