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!

Dog Walking in Riverdale Park

Riverdale, Maryland is technically the city that doesn’t exist anymore, but that’s only because the full name is now Riverdale Park. Don’t be surprised if you still hear locals just call it “Riverdale,” though, as the name wasn’t changed until 1998; that’s nearly 80 years after the city was founded. Riverdale Park is located just 25 minutes from Washington, D.C. and only 40 minutes from Baltimore, making it a great sleeper city for workers in either of those larger cities.

When it comes to dog-friendliness, Riverdale isn’t the best in the area. There’s one dog-friendly restaurant, Dumm’s Pizza and Subs. We’ll leave it up to you to figure out what kind of food you can get there. If your canine companion gets sick or injured, no need to worry! There’s a highly-rated veterinarian clinic in Riverdale, so care for your pooch is never too far away. Neither is dog-friendly fun, though; there are plenty of dog parks and more dog-friendly restaurants within 20 miles of Riverdale, so if you don’t mind a quick trip, there’s plenty for you and Fido to do! Enjoy your time here, whether you call it Riverdale or Riverdale Park!

A 20-minute drive will bring you to downtown Silver Spring, where you and Fido can have a ball playing at Ellsworth Urban Dog Park!
