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.

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.

Dog Walking in Oxon Hill

A small suburb of Washington, D.C., Oxon Hill is a community of about 17,000 in western Maryland. Thanks to its size and proximity to the nation’s capital, Oxon Hill has many dog-friendly activities nearby and nearly sixty vet clinics within twenty minutes of town.

Just cross the Potomac River, and in ten minutes, you’ll be at Dog Run Park at Carlyle in Alexandria, VA. This three-acre park includes a fenced play area, benches, gravel, and drinking water. Also in Alexandria is Founders Park, which offers a very scenic view of the Potomac. There is even a designated area for off-leash play, but note that it is not fenced.

If you’re in the mood for a more urban adventure, drive just fifteen minutes north until you reach the National Mall. The National Mall is famously dog-friendly -- just make sure your pup is leashed. You and Fido are welcome to go for a jog or have a picnic.

When you get back to Oxon Hill, check out Brother Jimmy’s BBQ. This restaurant offers slow-smoked barbecue, fried pickles, catfish, and more. Or try Potbelly Sandwich Shop: this deli is known for its delicious Wreck Sandwich and Uptown Salad. Both spots welcome dogs on their outdoor patios, so there’s no wrong choice here!
