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!

I love animals and especially dogs! I grew up with a beagle and have been walking dogs for neighbors and family friends since I was in middle school. I have also done pet sitting where I stayed at an owner's house and was completely responsible for their pet's care while they were away. I'm willing to do whatever it takes to make sure you and your dog are satisfied!

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.

Hi! My name is Jessyka. I have worked with dogs in various capacities my whole life, and professionally since June of 2017. For six years I cared for Lily, a Boxer/Pit mix with a TON of energy. She had severe separation anxiety and stranger aggression so I specialize in dogs with difficult behaviors. I look forward to meeting you and your puppy!

Dog Walking in Laurel

Laurel is a small town in Maryland that was founded in 1870 as a mill town on the Patuxent River. Laurel must have been popular with the dinosaurs because there is a park with 7.5 acres of dinosaur fossils from the Cretaceous Era. The parks must also be a popular place for the more than 5,000 dogs living there, and there are many dog-friendly places to go in Laurel.

Greenbelt Dog Park on Hanover Drive is a popular off-leash place to go with your furbaby. Greenbelt Dog Park was the first dog park in the city and is supported by the Greenbelt Dog Park Association. The GDPA believes socializing and exercising dogs is important to their happiness and health. It is a full acre with trees, benches, poop scoops and bags, and a double gate for safety.

Columbia Dogpark on Rivendell Lane is also a great place to let Fido play off-leash with other dogs. In order to alleviate any tension or anxiousness for worried pet owners, there are separate areas for big and small dogs, watering station, benches, and pet waste bags. The people and the pets are very well-behaved and fun.

College Park Dog Park Association manages the CP Dog Park to make sure that everyone behaves and has fun. It is fully fenced, has running water, grass, and a paved track, with shade trees and benches to relax on. It is kept very clean and is located in the Acredale Park on the Anacostia Tributary Trail System.
