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.

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!

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!
