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.

Dog Walking in Great Falls

Located in northern Fairfax County, Great Falls, Virginia is a bedroom community for Washington, D.C. and it has a population of more than 15,000 people. Although it's very close to Washington, D.C., there is plenty to do right in Great Falls. One of the town's biggest draws is Great Falls Park. Here, you can enjoy breathtaking views of the rushing Potomac River as it falls over steep rocks, as well as several hiking trails, picnic spots, fishing, and even rock climbing. Great Falls Park welcomes dogs as long as they are on a leash at all times. There isn't a designated off-leash park within Great Falls, but this National Park is still worth visiting with your leashed dog.

After a day exploring Great Falls Park, you've probably worked up quite the appetite. No need to drop your dog off at home before you grab something to eat -- there are a few dog-friendly restaurants in town! One of these places is called BRX American Bistro. They serve classic dishes like steak, burgers, sandwiches, flatbread, and soup, and they have two outdoor tables where Rover can join you. From the restaurants to the parks and the trails, you and your dog will always have something to do together in and around Great Falls!
