The Informant: Digital Magazine for Pets and their Owners

Since we spend at least 12 hours per day with pets we see a lot of great things and also a lot of strange things. We are also asked a lot of interesting questions from pet owners. To this end we have developed a digital magazine that highlights some interesting pet information as well as pet-friendly places and events around DC, Maryland, and Virginia.

Pet Parents love us

Peace of mind

We are trained and certified pet professionals. Patriotic Pet Care, LLC is fully licensed, bonded, and insured. When you book a service with us you can rest assured that your pet will be well cared for.

Customized care

We customize our visits to your pet’s personality. If they are energetic we can walk that extra block. If they are a little lovebug and prefer to cuddle on the couch, we will provide the care that is right for them.

Undivided attention

We do not watch the clock or walk multiple pets (aside from pet siblings) at one time. Our pet caregivers are not overbooked. We will not be running out the door to get to their next pet. Solo leashed walks are our focus. We will never walk your dog with others unless requested. Your dog gets one-on-one attention. We prefer to develop a bond with your pet.

We keep it simple

We use the latest technology to make scheduling easy and efficient.

We’re Here to Help

Going to work?

We offer mid-day dog walks in NW DC

 We know how hard it is to say “see you later” to your pet as you rush off to work each morning. Until you can convince your boss to let you bring Fido and Fluffy to the office we will be there to care for them during the workday. You will receive an update with a photo from our walk or play time to help brighten your day! Learn more>>


Book overnight pet sitting for cats or dogs or drop-in Cat Visits

What could be worse than seeing that little furry head tilt as you begin to pack your bags for a trip? Fido and Fluffy know that a suitcase means you will be leaving and it will feel like forever until you return. We cannot take your place but we can help keep your pet’s daily routine in-place. We  provide care in the place where they feel safest, their home, with all of their familiar scents and hidden toys. Learn more>>

When Life is Unpredictable

Although advance booking is required, if you have an emergency we should be able to accommodate your last minute service request

We will also be there to help with Fido and Fluffy when life is simply just too hectic or unpredictable. Whether you ended up with last-minute tickets for the theater or have your hands full with sick kids we will be there to care for your pets. Subject to staff availability. Learn more>>
