Hi! As the daughter of a vet I grew up with dogs - collies, poodles, a schnauzer and a dachshund (not all at the same time!) I currently co-parent two adorable Maltese dogs. I have a flexible schedule and will be walking dogs primarily in Silver Spring and Olney. I look forward to meeting your precious pooch!

“Full time. Any dog. Any weather. Extended hours :)”

Dog walking is my life! I can read dogs very well and quickly gain their trust and obedience. I’m great with high energy dogs, stubborn dogs, dogs that pull, dogs that snap, escape artists, dogs with dominance issues, dogs with triggers, handling multiple dogs at once and any other scenario concerning safety. I’m gentle, affectionate, attentive, protective, and caring and will provide the perfect experience no matter your dog’s size, breed, or temperament. Thanks for choosing me as your walker!

Dog Walking in Herndon

With all the hustle and bustle going on in the United States’s capital city, Washington, D.C., it can be easy to overlook the smaller cities that lie just beyond Capitol Hill. Herndon, Virginia, located in Fairfax County, is one of these smaller towns. Founded nearly two hundred years ago in 1858, Herndon became a major hub for the railroad tracks, giving the town ample opportunity to profit beyond the town limits. Herndon has also been home to many notable figures, including professional soccer player Jeremy Barlow and pop musician Ronnie Dove.

Today, Herndon has blossomed into a well-developed city. It’s not just full of opportunity for you, though; your canine companion can also have plenty of fun in Herndon! There are many dog-friendly restaurants, including chain restaurants like Panera Bread. There’s a dog park within the city, and there are many more within twenty or thirty minutes of the town. There are three vets to choose from, one of which is an emergency clinic that’s open twenty-four hours a day. You can rest easy knowing care is always available for your dog. Make sure to pay Herndon a visit!
