Looking for a dog walker in upper NW, Washington, DC?

Are you working long hours and worried about your dog being home alone all day? We know the feeling.

Let us give your dog a mid-day walk while you’re at work and give you peace of mind! You will know that your pup is doing well and had the opportunity to socialize with their dog walker, get some exercise and/or playtime, and have a potty break. If you’re having a bad day at work your day will get better when we send you a post-walk update with a picture of Fido walking around the neighborhood or chasing squirrels!

Are we the right dog walker for you?

Patriotic Pet Care, LLC provides dog walking in Washington, DC.  Our team of professional dog walkers work and live in the Ward 3 area of upper NW DC. Hiring a local dog walking company is important because we care about our neighbors, are actively involved in the community, volunteer and donate to local fundraisers, and support other local businesses.

We are headquartered in the Palisades close to the Palisades Deli and Georgetown Day School. We stay within a 2-3 mile radius because we know the local streets and know where the dogs like to sniff. Please see below or view our service area page to learn more.

We work as a team. If your primary walker is unavailable another walker will cover the visits. Think of it as hiring the company Patriotic Pet Care, LLC and not an individual dog walker. All walkers are fully vetted and deliver the same level of quality care and service. It is important to complete the pet information worksheet in our portal so that the company can share accurate information with the assigned walker.

Why should you hire a professional dog walking company over an app or the kid next door? 

When you hire a local company you are getting peace of mind, you are getting a walker with experience and training, you are getting a walker who is vetted and background checked. You are also supporting the local economy.  Learn more>>

Top 5 Benefits of Walking for Dogs

1. Exercise helps to ensure your dog will achieve or maintain a healthy weigh! 

2. Improves socialization so your dog will be less fearful in life of the mailman, other dogs,  kids, or the metro bus.

3. Increased mental stimulation.  Sniffing new smells is exciting for your dog!

4. Helps to alleviate boredom and the destructive behavior that may follow.

5. Dogs enjoy routines. If they have a regular dog walker they usually know when it’s time and wait by the door!
