Boutique professional service providing loving quality pet care in the heart of the nation's capital since 2007.

My philosophy is QUALITY, rather than quantity, and FLEXIBILITY.  I specialize in a defined geographic area around Lincoln Park which allows me to provide a flexible, responsive service since I live within that area.

I LOVE animals and have years of experience working with them. You can trust me to provide a safe, comfortable, fun, and healthy environment for your pets. Whether it’s taking them for walks or providing in-home care, I’ll watch over them as if they were my own.

Licensed by DLCP (#400318804305) through 5/31/26. Insured & bonded by PSA. Red Cross Pet First Aid certified.


My current dog walking COVERAGE AREA is limited to a portion of Capitol Hill SE and is highlighted on the map below.  


I cover a broader area for cat sitting - If you need a cat sitter, contact me to find out if I cover your location on Capitol Hill SE or NE.  I cannot accommodate cat sitting requests on H ST NE, in the Navy Yard, Wharf, or north of H ST NE at this time.

I only board current dog walking clients and am unable to accommodate daycare and individual walk requests for dogs whose families are in town for a tourist or special event visit.

MIDDAY PACK WALKS UPDATE (4/29/24): I have limited availability to add to the pack at this time.  If you are located in my coverage area, please use the CONTACT ME form below to send me the particulars regarding your dog’s needs (please do not text or call).  If I can't accommodate your request I may be able to help you connect to one of my peers.

PLEASE NOTE:  I have a busy schedule but do my best to respond to requests within 2 days.  If your request comes in on a Friday, you may not hear back from me until Monday.  If you don't hear back from me within 2 business days, please try reaching out again.  THANK YOU.

1250 C ST SE, Washington DC 20003

I'm Lara Walker. A 33 year resident of Capitol Hill, I’ve been providing loving care and professional and reliable services that pet owners can count on since 2007. I'm a lifelong animal lover and longtime dog owner and believe in caring for the fur babies I’m entrusted with as I care for my own beloved SharPei, Buddha.

With years of experience as a dog owner and pet caregiver, I understand the expectations of pet parents. I am dedicated to ensuring that every animal is safe & happy in every situation and providing real solutions to the most common problems pet owners face. Still, I'm always learning about new care techniques and pride myself on improving my skill set so that I can provide the best pet care on Capitol Hill.
