OUR TEAM

THE WALK. PLAY. LOVE. FAMILY
Together we are excited to be taking care of your furry family members. Cats & dogs have been a part of our lives since we can remember and we wouldn’t be the same without them. Our pets have been our greatest companions with mutual unconditional love & unbreakable bonds. As we found ourselves around so many wonderful animals (and personalities!) every day, we were inspired by an exciting endeavor — WALK. PLAY. LOVE. We couldn’t imagine a better way to “work” and spend our day. We want to ensure you a worry-free time away as it is our treat to help you care for your cats or dogs.
Meet Eric
Co-Founder and Co-Pet-Lover: As a Born and raised Washingtonian, this area is my home. I have always had a strong affinity towards animals, especially dogs. I come from a family of strong dog lovers and have been lucky enough to own dogs my entire life. I feel that our pets ‘make’ our ‘homes’ – they are the clasp that closes the circle. It is one of the most comforting feelings to come home and to be immediately greeted with so much warmth, joy, and love by our pets – no matter how good or bad our day has gone. In 2015 I fell into dog walking and pet sitting by random luck, an open mind, and being in the right place at the right time—and what a gift that was! This has become one of the most rewarding jobs I have ever had and I consider myself very lucky to be able to now build a business that is filled with so much love, happiness, and positive energy. Outside of walking dogs I enjoy an active lifestyle. I enjoy running, playing basketball, and of course taking my puppy Quinn everywhere. Growing up here, I am very familiar with the many beautiful walking trails and parks in the area and enjoy taking her to them frequently. I also love to travel and discover new places, especially learning their history. If I could take my dog everywhere with me, I would! In addition to my years’ experience in dogs and dog walking, I am PetSaver-, Pet CPR-, & Pet First Aid-trained.

MEET SARITA

Hello fellow pet owners! My name is Sarita. I was born and raised in Silver Spring, MD, but I’m part Belizean, part Salvadorian. Always traveling to Belize every summer from a young age, I grew a love for adventure! Any place that’s new to me that I haven’t explored yet, I’m there. I plan on going back to school to become a veterinary assistant and wanted to be exposed to more dogs/animals other than my own. My love for animals; I cannot even begin to tell. I’ve been around dogs my entire life; from Chihuahua’s to Rottweiler’s, to Pitbull’s, to my late Miniature Pincher Renzo. I’ve dealt with all sizes and I love them all. I’ll be sure to love your fur-babies as one of my own and take very good care of them. 

MEET NICK

Hello! My name is Nick Stocker and I was born and raised in Silver Spring, MD. I’ve lived here my entire life so I know the area very well. I graduated from Our Lady of Good Counsel in 2015. I have had Golden Retrievers my entire life which has taught me how important it is to not only care for your animals but to get to know each one’s unique personality. I enjoy the outdoors, taking my dog for a hike, and listening to music. I have a lot of experience walking dogs and I look forward to meeting all of your furry friends! 

MEET NELSON

Hello! My name is Nelson. I was born and raised right here in the area in Gaithersburg. I’m currently going to Montgomery College hoping to transfer to a local university and seek out a degree in psychology. I enjoy the outdoors and all kinds of sports but soccer holds a special place in my heart. I love playing, watching, and experiencing everything soccer. I also really love all animals. Although I may not have had any big pets my family owned 2 quails a couple years ago. They were really cool and always fun to take care of. I’m hoping to meet your furry friend and I promise I will take care of it as if it was my own. By doing this I hope to convince my family to allow me to eventually get my own furry friend!

MEET LAURA

Greetings! I am Laura and I love dogs! I’ve been working with dogs since I was very young. I would join my cousin, who is a vet tech, on dog walks and cat visits. As I got older, and I was able to begin doing my own visits, I’ve learned how to handle all different types of animals. Puppies, older dogs, big dogs, little dogs, and all types of cats too. I am familiar with administering shots and giving medication. Your pet is my priority, and they already have my heart!
