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!

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.

Dog Walking in Falls Church

Falls Church is a small city in the state of Virginia. Included in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, this historic area was involved in both the American Revolutionary War and the American Civil War. Today, Falls Church is a popular place for young families, including pet owners. Pet parents will find 10 veterinarians within the city's limits.

Although Falls Church is a small, quiet community, it does offer a few amenities for pets and their parents. Spend some time exploring the trails at Roundtree Park, or check out West End Park. 

Adventuring can be tiresome, and if you need a place to rest your head, try Westin Tysons Corner. This hotel welcomes small dogs at no additional fee. If you are traveling with a larger canine companion, TownePlace Suites by Marriott Falls Church may be a better choice, but does charge a pet fee. When you're feeling hungry, check out one of the local restaurants with dog-friendly outdoor seating, including La Caraquea and Sea Pearl. 

Whether you and your pup are locals or you are just passing through the area, you will have no trouble finding something to do in and around the dog-friendly community of Falls Church, Virginia.
