Why Choose Us?

24+  Years of Professional Experience

At A Walk in the Park, we've dedicated our lives to caring for pets since 1999.


We are member of Pet Sitters International (PSI) and National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS)

We have acquired several other exemplary pet care businesses since 2015, and welcomed hundreds of their customers into our family:

In Good Paws Pet Sitting

The Bestiary

Royal Pedigree Pet Care

Licensed, Bonded & Insured

We are licensed to do business in the great state of Maryland. Our employees are bonded and insured with Business Insurers of the Carolinas through the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS). Our policy covers the care, custody, and control of not only your pet but also of your home!

BBB Accredited A+ Rating

We are also accredited and A+ rated with the Better Business Bureau.

Trained Professional Staff

We carefully screen candidates and hire only experienced pet handlers who are detail-oriented, reliable, responsible, caring, and passionate about pets! They are trained to meet our high standards by other experienced staff members. 

Community Focus

We are part of the Montgomery County community and strive to help our neighbors and their pets however we can.

Available & Flexible

We are available to care for pets 365 days a year between 7am and 9pm. We can schedule regular dog walking services or provide care on an as-needed basis. If you need a last-minute visit, we make every effort to accommodate your request (and rarely disappoint!) We allow dog walking schedule changes without charge up to 4pm the prior business day.


We have a highly experienced team to ensure that we meet your needs and expectations. If a walker/pet sitter is sick or has car trouble, we work to prevent or minimize any impact on you and your pet(s). Has your pet sitter cancelled days before your vacation? We will never do that, and often take on new customers after frantic phone calls for just this reason. When you hire A Walk in the Park, you are hiring a team of professionals.
