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 Alexandria

Who let the dogs out? You did, at the Dog Run Park at Carlyle! This dog park is completely fenced in, so your pooch can play leash-free, and you won’t need to worry, or have a sense of anxiety, about Fido getting into trouble or going loose somewhere else. Dog Run Park has a separate area just for small dogs and puppies, as well as drinking water for all breeds.

Dog parks are fun, but if there was only a way not to lose your dog’s favorite toy every time you went to one…oh wait, there is! Beatley Library Dog Park doesn’t just have a wide-open area for dogs to run leash-free, but it also provides toys to play with there. Feel free to play with a ball, a Frisbee, or a tug-o-war rope, and then leave it in the park for the next time you visit. Not bringing your own toys means not losing the best ones!

Were you planning on going to the dog park today, but a huge storm rolled through last night, soaking everything and making the ground a big muddy mess? No one likes taking their dogs out to tromp in the mud puddles – especially if their dogs don’t like baths – but at Grist Mill Dog Park, those worries get washed away. Grist Mill is covered in a special blue landscaping dust that is made especially for reducing mud. No mud. No worries. All fun!
