“There’s nothin more lovin in this world than dogs”

I’ve done more than 90 overnight sittings and there is nothing, I love more in the world than dogs. They’re the most loving creatures on this planet. I've volunteered for the Hawaiian humane society and I donate to ASPCA monthly. I can’t wait to take care of, walk or sit with your babies. Feel free to contact me for questions.

Dog Walking in Rockville

In 1803, the town of Rockville was named after Rock Creek, which runs through the entire town. In fact, the best place to go hiking with your dog is at the Rock Creek Park, which has seven trails of different skill levels from three to 18 miles long. Depending on the trail you take, there are several lakes, ponds, woods, hills, and rocky areas. Most trails are natural surface and secluded with great views of the lakes and creek as well as plenty of wildlife. With about 14,000 dogs living in Rockville, you will surely see one or two along the trails.

Great Falls Park has several trails ranging from easy to hard, but they all take you by scenic parts of the falls and historic ruins of Matildaville, named after Robert E. Lee’s wife. The River Trail is the hardest, but has the best views, with cliffs from 25-75 feet, and you will have to share the cliffs with vultures and herons. The views of the Potomac River from this trail are amazing, but it is dangerous without experience.

After hiking, you can get a room at one of the dog-friendly hotels in Rockville; such as the Sheraton on King Farm Boulevard, Best Western on West Montgomery Avenue, Quality Inn on Piccard Drive, Hilton on Rockville Pike, and Red Roof Plus on Shady Grove Road.

The close neighborhood of Rollins Park is the height of living for an urban pup. They can dine with you at Mykonos Grill, enjoying ice water on the patio while you enjoy a home-style Greek meal. As you window shop the area, your pup can practice walking in a high-distraction environment. Venture a bit further afield into the outer Rollins Park area for a special treat: 7 Lock Brewery. Join the tasting room on a Sunday for a welcoming atmosphere for leashed dogs and sample some of the brews.

Rockville Dog Park at King Farm is an experience worthy of a royal family, or at least a royal family’s dog. The area is well-maintained, with separate runs for large and small dogs, and is fenced for off-leash play. The only catch is that Rockville Dog Park at King Farm is for Rockville residents only, and requires a dog license to play. If you’re traveling from out of town, console yourself and your displaced royal dog with Thai Farm or Fontina Grille, two of the dog-friendly eateries in the neighborhood.

Home to many Rockville events during the year, Rockville Town Square is the best place for eating lunch with your dog. Two restaurants with outdoor seating areas and pet-friendly staff are located within a block of each other. Spice Xing and Lebanese Taverna offer delicious meals with views of the busy Rockville Town Square area. If you’re craving something else, take your four-legged friend for a walk, as the area has several other restaurants branching out from the central location.

If the Rock Creek Trail only whets your appetite for nature and natural adventure, a detour across the trail, through the woods, and to the nearby Avery neighborhood in nearby Potomac is a must. As well as offering you different entry points into the Rock Creek Trail, Avery is home to Potomac Paddlesports. This dog friendly store is a great place to check out when you want to put your fitness to a real-world test. Stop by before or after a hike to warm up or cool down with your most dedicated exercise partner.
