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!

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'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 Fairfax Station

Fairfax Station is 22 miles from Washington D.C. in the state of Virginia. The town is a pretty cozy community and has been expanding throughout the years thanks to the lower cost of living and the beautiful scenery and township that makes up the area. This also makes it much easier and pleasant to raise a dog in the town, and is made even better thanks to the dozens of acres of dog-friendly parks and three veterinarians ready to cater to your pup!

The gem of the town for dog lovers is the South Run Dog Park on the eastern edge of town. This park has a mixed terrain of sand, dirt and grassy patches, with over 3 acres of open land to run around in. There is a double-gated entrance, agility equipment for dogs to play on, and free water bowls and dog toys. Dogs can run freely off-leash from the hours of 9 AM to 10 PM, with nighttime lights and additional features like water, clean-up stations, benches, and trash bins.

If your pup doesn't mind being on a leash and needs more places to explore, walk on over to Burke Lake Park. This massive park spreads over 888 acres, with a large lake, forested trails, picnic areas, ballfields, a pavilion, and restrooms. Dogs can explore the trails which expand over 9 miles throughout the park, or play in the open fields. There are also clean-up bags, water fountains, and benches.

It doesn't matter if you're looking for a scenic area to explore, a free space for Fido, or a walk downtown, Fairfax Station will be sure to accommodate you and your pup!
