    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!

    “A caring & experienced walker your pup will love!”

    Hi there, I'm Meg! I have over 15 years experience in the pet care field- as a dog walker and pet sitter, as well as a vet-tech assistant in an animal hospital. I have tons of experience with all aspects of dog walking & pet care. As well as with all ages, breeds and temperaments- from babies to seniors, anxiety riddled and shy to bouncing off the walls! I genuinely enjoy spending time with dogs (and all animals!) and would love to walk your furry family members!

    “Veteran dog trainer walking fur babies!”

    Hello, I am Mel! I have handled animals since I can remember! I was 3yrs old helping my grandfather on his farm with his eight dogs of various sizes, different breeds and personalities. I've taken care of my neighbors dog, and any other rescue dogs like my own and my best friend's dog. Both dogs have had environmental traumas but recovered amazingly after, while being in my care. Originally from Florida. I train dogs as well. I currently have a service dog with me.

    “Available last minute!”

    Hi there! Growing up I always had a variety of animals. When I was old enough I would rescue strays and work to make sure they were healthy and find new homes for them. I have worked with animals for over 10 years. I am reliable, transparent, loyal, and patient. During my time it’s animals I try to make sure they’re having the best time possible. Including but not limited to playing, walking, bathing, feeding and of course giving lots of love! I have a deep love and appreciation for all animals.

    As a longtime dog owner, I have developed a great system for walking dogs. I balance discipline with a good amount of exercise. Using affection as a motivator, I have a great experience with a variety of dog sizes and types. You and your dog will receive five-star treatment each and every walk!

    Everyone loves ice cream. It is the perfect way to end a day or celebrate a special occasion. Baylor's Soft Ice Cream wants you to bring your dog along while you enjoy a cone or cup of your favorite flavor. The staff will love fussing over Fido, and will even give your pooch a "pup cup"! Just remember that you'll have to keep your dog leashed while you enjoy your sweet treat. You will also want to make sure that your pup can handle crowds and other dogs, because pooches from all over the area love to come and sample the creamy goodness on offer here!

    Do you and Fido love all things spooky, scary, and haunted? Then Dumfries' Death Trail is for you! During the fall, it is set up as a guided, haunted tour, and you must purchase tickets. Dogs on leashes are allowed on select tours. However, in the off-season, the trails are open by appointment. This trail is every bit as scary as it sounds, so you will want to check this out with plenty of friends in tow. Be warned -- if your dog is protective, easily scared, or prone to biting when startled, you may not want to bring him along.

    Prince William Forest Park is a great alternative to staying in a hotel. Here, you can rent full cabins, pull up an RV, or even enjoy some primitive tent camping. Walk Fido on one of the many trails here. Your dog can even join you on an ecosystem tour that shows you how life has thrived in this park for centuries. There is a leash law in all the areas of this park, and dogs are not allowed inside the restrooms. If you've had enough of the ruff and rugged wilderness, all the modern conveniences of the city are just a 5-minute drive away. What better way to make un-fur-gettable memories with your pooch?

    Looking for a good ol' fashioned dog park? Take a short, eight-mile trip over to Woodbridge. This is where you will find places made just for your dog! Prince William County Dog Park is first up on your doggy to-do list. This is a large park with plenty of room for your dog to run and play. There are two different areas for different sized dogs to play in. The park provides doggie waste bags, water, and lots of shaded areas to sit and watch your dog play. This furrific park is owned and operated by the Prince William County Animal Shelter and the Prince William County Humane Society. Consider donating to the Humane Society to contribute to the park's upkeep!

    Port Potomac Dog Park is a small dog park. You do have to register your pet before you play here. If you are not a resident, you can get a day permit from the city. The park supplies doggie waste bags, and the trash is dumped regularly so this park stays nice and tidy. You will want to bring water for your pup because it isn't always turned on. Because this is a smaller dog park, it doesn't tend to get as busy, so if you are looking for lots of pups to play with, you may want to choose another park. This pawesome park is in Woodbridge, just about eight miles away.
