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!

My name's Cat, but I love dogs! I'm currently a student and think spending time with dogs is a great study-break. I've got lots of experience taking care of my 3 dog-nephews, who are a lab, a pit mix, and a husky. I also enjoy running, so if your pup needs some extra exercise, I'd love to help out!

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!
