"I have been a loyal client of A Walk in the Park since 2005. During that entire period, the owners and staff have cared for my West Highland Terrier, Reilly, as if he belonged to them. I have never had a single concern about any of the individuals who arrive daily to provide Reilly his afternoon walks. I particularly appreciate how Amy, Noelle and Sara are always willing to accommodate my last minute requests for additional services. In fact, earlier this year when I broke my ankle and was mobile only with crutches for weeks, they quickly devised a schedule of early morning, afternoon and evening services for Reilly such that I never had to worry about his care and feeding for the entire time I was incapacitated. They literally tossed me a life line and I don't know what I would have done without their assistance!
I would highly recommend the services of A Walk in the Park to anyone who desires the peace of mind knowing, without any reservation whatsoever, that their pet is being well cared for - and in my Reilly's case, treasured."
"Love this business! Local, family owned and operated. They have been a blessing for my family - from coming multiple times a day for a whole service operation when my family goes out of town to coming on short-notice when we have to stay late at work. They offer common sense full service - they change my cat's litter or give my dog her medication when required, as well as feed, walk or throw a ball in our backyard with our pets. I do not board my animals and have used several companies for out of town travel- this one is fantastic, and the price is as reasonable as they come."
"After adopting my cat Ulysses earlier this year, I knew there'd be a few times each year when I'd need to be out of town. When I started looking for a pet sitter, I tried a few agencies in the that had decent reviews on Yelp -- one never responded to me and one responded with a curt message saying they were booked full. Not exactly good customer service on either account.
I decided to try A Walk in the Park since they were right in my neighborhood, and I've been very pleased with my decision! The woman who did the in-person consultation was pleasant and professional, and asked all of the important questions about the care I wanted for Ulysses -- even down to asking how many treats to put out and where extra food (beyond what the plenty in his auto-feeder) could be found if needed.
I have used them twice now (with another service scheduled for the Christmas holiday) and have been very happy with their service. Each day that they come, they leave a pet sitting report indicating what time of day they came, what services they provided and some cute notes about the visit. On their notes for the last visits' reports they noted how sweet and affectionate my cat was and that they spent their time together giving plenty of head and chin scratches.
While some may be wary of letting strangers into their house, I can say that I've never had any problems and I've returned to everything exactly how I've found it. I also think their prices are reasonable and worth it to know that your pet is getting the attention it deserves while you have to be away."
"This is an all-round excellent company. My dog is well cared for, and they never miss a walk. The company is particularly accommodating with schedule changes, and I intend using them indefinitely."
"I can't say enough good things about A Walk in the Park. We have a rescue dog, who is big and strong, pulls heroically and is fearful of all things, sounds and most people. He fell for 95% of the walkers we saw every day. They taught him to walk reasonably every day for them 5 days a week. Each walker was patient, kind and praised our difficult hound every day for 'good work. We wanted to adopt a few of them! We have had a great experience!"
"I've used a Walk in the Park a handful of times now (typically on the weekends), and I am very happy with them! They are very professional, responsive, and reliable. I also love that they leave "walk reports" that include notes on how my puppy did. I always have peace of mind when using this service and highly recommend it to others in the greater Bethesda area!"

Happy customers for over 3 years! They are great with our guinea pigs and always fit us in, even at the last minute. Highly recommend!
We have used them for over four years for daily walks. They have been 100% reliable, very flexible scheduling, and take excellent care of our dog.
AWITP is a great local dog walking service! We depend on them every week to take care of our pups and they have never let us down. Cant recommend them enough. 5 stars.
