Dog Walking

Washington DC Maryland Daily Dog Walking Services

Work long hours? Our daily walks are perfect for dogs of all ages and sizes. Your dog will look forward to regular walks with their favorite dog walker. We’ll let you know when we arrive, when we leave, and if we notice any changes in your dog’s behavior or potty habits.

And yes, we always scoop the poop!

Pet Sitting

Maryland Washington DC Cat Sitting Vacation Services

Going out of town? We’ll visit your pets for feedings, litter-box maintenance, playtime and snuggles. You can also request that we give your pet medications or take care of other special needs. We’ll provide daily updates on your pets’ health, happiness and behavior, plus cute photos because we know how much you miss them.

Quick Questions

  • Some pet owners choose to call upon neighbors, friends and family members to care for their pets. Or, they may hire hobby pet sitters from websites and apps.

    Inexperienced pet sitters and dog walkers are not trained to recognize signs of a medical emergency. They may leave gates and doors unlocked, or even lose your dog during a walk. 

    Petstitgious Pets is a fully bonded and insured business. Our pet sitters and dog walkers are trained in pet CPR and first aid, and we regularly participate in animal-related seminars, conferences and workshops. Pet care is not our hobby, it’s our profession!

  • Before we can get started, we’ll need to have an in-person consultation to meet you and your pets, go over our policies and discuss your pets’ unique needs.

    The consultation will take 20-60 minutes and there will be a consultation fee of $15. You’ll need to fill out a veterinary information sheet and provide us with a key to enter your home.

Washington DC and Maryland Pets Love Huff and Puff Pet Care, LLC!

I have two special needs Chihuahuas. One hates dogs, and one hates people. Not an easy combo, but Shatiya and Alan were happy to take them on! One of the things I love about Huff and Puff Pet Care is that Alan is our one-and-only dog walker. Alan met with me each night for a week for a joint walk to get to know my dogs so they would feel comfortable with him before starting solo walks. He is working on building a relationship with my dog that is afraid of people, and when she’s ready, she’ll start going on walks too. I really appreciate the time he and Shatiya have invested in getting to know my dogs and their needs. I feel so much better now that I know they are getting a visit each day while I’m at work. Shatiya and Alan are a great team, and I give them my highest recommendation. – Shae S.

We were looking for a pet sitter to take care of our cat Gabe over the holidays and were having a hard time finding something affordable and reliable. We heard about Huff and Puff Pet Care in our apartment complex as they do nail trimmings a few times a month for pets in the building. I could tell from my first time meeting her that Shatiya loves animals. She wanted to know all about Gabe and how they could best take care of him while we were away. The pricing is fair–especially over the holidays–and we feel confident that things are being taken care of while we’re away. She even cleans Gabe’s food bowls and leaves his litter box in pristine condition. If you’re looking for a reliable, reasonably priced cat sitter, Huff and Puff Pet Care is a great choice! – Heather V. 

Shatiya is a great sitter for our cat. She always sends us pictures and updates while we are away so that we can know that everything is alright. Very trustworthy and professional! – Andrew I.
