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.

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!

My name's Cat, but I love dogs! I'm currently a student and think spending time with dogs is a great study-break. I've got lots of experience taking care of my 3 dog-nephews, who are a lab, a pit mix, and a husky. I also enjoy running, so if your pup needs some extra exercise, I'd love to help out!

“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 McLean

McLean is a luxurious community in northern Virginia with gorgeous homes and prominent shopping destinations. This affluent area is home to many important figures in American politics and business, including Congressmen and other government officials who commute to Washington D.C.

This diverse area has a little something for everyone. Dog owners can find a retreat in multiple public parks with walking trails and lush environments. McLean and its surrounding areas, such as Arlington and Woodland Acres, also offer a variety of pet-friendly eateries and more than 15 veterinary clinics in total. If you love the buzz and excitement of big cities, Washington D.C. is just right across the border.

The park is easily accessible from the parking lot, making it easy for you and Fido to explore the paved trails along the waterline. You won't be able to resist snapping a pic of the magnificent views! Pooches are always welcome, as long as they are leashed and behave themselves.

Glencarlyn is a well-kept, historic neighborhood. A former retreat for Washingtonians eager to escape the city, Glencarlyn was once the site of lavish summer residences. Time has passed, and Glencarlyn is now a residential neighborhood of Arlington that still offers a retreat for those who need it. Glencarlyn Park and Playground is a wonderful park nestled on the banks of Four Mile Run. Walking and hiking trails, paired with wooded spots and a creekside off-leash area, make the experience pleasant and un-fur-gettable.

Courthouse Road starts in downtown Vienna and stretches south into Oakton, offering a range of business and public parks along the way. You'd be barking mad to miss Nottoway Park, a spacious community park with sports fields, welcoming picnic areas, and a dog park. Vienna Dog Park, hidden in the northeastern corner of the park, is a nice and well-shaded enclosure for off-leash fun! Popular in the afternoon, the park features a grassy area with seating and a fence. If you want to socialize your pup, come by after 3 p.m. to meet some of the local dogs who frequent the park! Don't forget to bring some drinking water.
