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!

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 grew up with dogs. I currently have two little fur babies of my own whom I love to death. When I was in highschool I took care of the neighborhood pets for income. While in grad school in California I was employed by a petsitting program through our student union. I’ve been around animals all my life and I’m very familiar and confident in handling all sizes, temperaments, and breeds.

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.

Dog Walking in Mt Rainier

Mount Rainier, Maryland is only four miles from downtown Washington, D.C., but this town of around 8,500 stands its own ground. Mount Rainier was named in 1891 by developers after the famous mountain in Washington. Due in part to its history as a streetcar suburb and several unique Craftsman-style homes, many parts of Mount Rainier are listed as historic areas. With a vibrant arts district, charming residential neighborhoods, and a pedestrian-friendly layout, Mount Rainier is a lovely place to live with your family, including, of course, your four-legged family members.

Mount Rainier is not only a dog-friendly town, but it has a reputation for being a very vegetarian-friendly place to live as well, and one restaurant in central Mount Rainier is proof of that. Sweet and Natural is a 100% vegan restaurant that focuses on using the best and most natural ingredients possible, and their menu changes every day. Their dishes include vegan cheesesteaks, veggie fried fish, vegan meatloaf, and all-day brunch on weekends. There is also an outdoor table at Sweet and Natural so Rover can join you for a meal there, too! You and your dog are going to have so much fun in Mount Rainier getting to know what makes it so unique.
