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!

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 Hyattsville

Beautiful and peaceful, Hyattsville is a great place to raise your pup in a friendly community. Strolling through one of the many city parks is the perfect exercise for both you and your pooch. Centennial Park is a wonderful grassy area where you will find beautiful sculptures to admire during your stroll. Fido will enjoy frolicking in the plants and socializing with his friends.

In addition to exercise, Fido needs to go for his well puppy checks on a regular basis. Hyattsville offers 3 veterinarian clinics that provide quality routine care and emergency services. After a visit to the vet, treat your pup to some treats or a new collar at Unleashed, a family owned pet store.

Heading out for a hike along Sligo Trail. You can access the trail on Sligo Parkway and enjoy walking through the natural areas along Sligo creek with your canine companion. The trail goes through several parks where you can rest on a bench or refill your water bottles while enjoying a warm summer day. 

Stop off at Vigilante Coffee before or after your adventure to enjoy a hot drink and some conversation. Pups are allowed inside, and the staff will offer your pooch a water bowl and treat while you enjoy your breakfast.
