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!

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.
