Experienced, Reliable Pet Care

Barking Trails is a dedicated pet care service provider, serving all of Maryland, D.C., and Northern Virginia. We’ve made it our mission to be reliable, flexible, transparent, and very responsive with all of our clients. We provide services for Dog Walking, Dog Sitting, Cat Sitting, and In-Home Boardings.

All of our dog walkers and pet sitters have years of animal care experience, undergone background checks, and are insured and bonded by Liberty Mutual Insurance. Before services begin we have a free consultation, where you will meet the owner as well as your regular dog walker or pet sitter. You will have the same walker for each visit, and in case your regular walker can’t make it, back up walks are provided by another local walker, who you can meet before-hand.

Many of our clients have varying schedules week by week, we are very understanding of last minute changes and do whatever we can to accommodate them. We can schedule walks as early as the night before, and will not charge for late emergency cancellations. Let our experienced staff here at Barking Trails take care of your pets when you can’t!

Benefits of Dog Walking

Helps keep your Pup Healthy:

Regular long walks help keep your dog healthy, limber, and agile.

Helps with Weight Control:

An overweight pup is not a healthy pup. To keep your dog in tip-top shape, it’s important to provide them with regular exercise in addition to regulating their diet.

No more Destructive Behavior:

Regular walks, as well as other forms of exercise, can help reduce or eliminate any of your pups destructive chewing, digging, or scratching. Dogs are like children: If you are not giving them something constructive to do, you may not like how they choose to burn their energy.

No more Hyper Activity:

Walks can help to alleviate extra energy your pup may have, calming it down and reducing any hyperactivity, excitability, and even night-time activity. A walk can help your pup to feel more relaxed and sleepy rather than restless at bedtime.

No more Unruliness:

Behaviors such as knocking over furniture or jumping on people can be a sign of pent up energy. Regular walks will help curb this, as well as help their on-leash behavior.

Using Barking Trails has been one of the best decisions I’ve made, knowing that someone I trust is making sure my dog gets the care and attention that she needs while I can’t provide it, gives me such peace of mind…
