    Hi, I'm Bil! I have lived in the DC/Metro area all my life, and I grew at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains with an incredible Yellow Lab named Lucky. Over the years I have worked with various animal shelters, fostering and rescue programs, and currently I am the proud father of 2 extraordinary rescue pups - Ted, a 5 yr old Pit/Boxer mix, and Dae, a 2 yr old German Shepherd. I enjoy meeting new dogs and learning all of their unique characteristics and personality traits. Your dogs happiness, safety and comfort are my first priority. I will give your dog the care and attention they deserve, and provide a pleasant (and fun) experience for them!

    “Lot’s of love to give your fur-baby! 💕 🐾 🐶”

    Hello! My name is Paola. I was born and raised in the DMV. I have two beautiful fur babies. Our first baby is 12 - Max, Shepard mixed and our other baby is 7 - Chui, Husky mixed. I love dogs, and have been around them since I was 5. Being able to walk your dogs, allows you to be at ease knowing that they’re in good hands. Even better, it gives them the opportunity to explore the city that we live in, and at the same time, enjoy some fresh air and much needed exercise.

    “Your pet's pack leader, your peace of mind.”

    I have been a dog lover all my life. I care for them like a family member. Not only do I provide dog walking, I also provide daycare, drop ins, and dog boarding. I am able to ensure that the dogs are frequently taken out for fresh air, exercise, toilet, and mental stimulation.

I'm the proud mama of three rescued Pit Bulls who are my absolute WORLD!My very first job was at a pet shop cleaning dog cages and walking puppies.

    Hi! My name is Bridget. I grew up with a beagle mix named Nikki. Over the years I’ve walked and dog-sat countless family memebers and friends dogs. I’ve always been a dog lover and enjoy spending as much time as I can with them. Not often to I come across a dog who I don’t bond with immediately. I also enjoy exercise myself, so long walks won’t ever be an issue for me!
