A Chat with District Dog Hero
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We provide dog walking with benefits by providing a safe, reliable dog walking service for residents of Northwest DC and support local rescues through donation of time and resources.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Pet owner for 12 years, foster home for six years, and foster coordinator for three rescues for two years. We have the resume to care for your dog in an expert and safe manner. We also have the hearts to do so. All three of us are committed to serving your family and the homeless dogs of the DMV.
What do you love most about your job?
I love walking dogs and caring for them, but even better is when I get the phone call that one of the dogs on our adoption page has been adopted. There is nothing like adding that “adopted” banner across their picture.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
“I’ve had the pleasure to work with Desiree. Desiree has fostered some of the most fragile animals at the shelter and her commitment to animal care is extraordinary. I would definitely entrust her with my own animals,” Amanda Hungerford, case manager, Washington Humane Society.
