We know your furry friend is an important part of your life and that you work hard at keeping your canine happy and healthy, but we also know the unique challenges of being a pet owner in the DMV area. You’re probably balancing many competing demands for your time such as family, a stressful job or a long commute, to name a few. Your to-do list might include taking Fido to the exercise run at Shirlington Park or to the doggie play area at S Street Dog Park. But the truth is, remaining committed to meeting your dog’s health and fitness needs sometimes requires time that you may not have. We see you, DC dog owners, and we’re here to help!  

Let Petish Help Your Dog Exercise

Our dog running service is designed with your busy life in mind, and we take pride in providing an incredibly personal level of service to you and your pooch. We are locally owned and operated, and each member of our team is highly-trained – as well as loving pet owners themselves – meaning you can trust that your dog will always be in safe, capable hands with Petish dog runners.

Our Dog Runners

It’s nerve-wracking to turn your furry BFF over to someone new, isn’t it? We understand because, at Petish, we’re all pet owners, too. This is why we are so dedicated to learning your dog’s particular exercise needs and understanding the running pace they require. Your dog will be in dependable and caring hands with our runners, each of whom is fully bonded and insured, meaning you can trust us to keep your pup safe and happy.


Our Affordable Dog Fitness Service

It’s our goal to make our DC dog running service accessible to as many pet owners as possible, which means an affordable pricing structure that offers greater value as you book longer runs:

  • 20-minute running session - $22

  • 30-minute running session - $27

  • 45-minute running session - $32

Need your dog run three or more times per week? Then you should consider buying a monthly package with Petish. Purchasing a package helps to reserve your dog a spot on our calendar. It also offers great savings!

  • 3 x 30-min visits per week: $21 per run (est. $252 per month)

  • 4 x 30-min visits per week: $20 per run (ext. $320 per month)

What to Expect: Initial Consultation

At Petish, we know your dog is unique. While some pups may like a leisurely run on flat ground at the National Arboretum, others do better on rolling ground and trails, such as at Rock Creek Park. Some dogs like a long, uninterrupted run, while others require frequent pit stops. That’s why we take the time to discuss your dog’s particular needs up front in our initial consultation. We believe you and your pet get the best experience possible when you have the opportunity to share your pooch’s quirks or special needs. In this way, our initial conversation can help to alleviate any concerns you might have about whether our dog running service is right for your pet.

Benefits of Petish’s Dog Running Service

Do you have an athletic dog who requires regular runs to burn off excess energy and stay in shape? Or maybe your dog is young and simply has lots of energy to expend? What about a pup who could shed a few pounds for his health? In each of these scenarios, frequent runs with our trained staff have health and behavioral benefits, and they ensure your pooch won’t use his energy on your furniture or shoes, but in a constructive and enjoyable way instead! Our running service is also great for dogs who are cooped up for long periods of time, or who live in a small space with nowhere to run.

In addition to the benefits for your furry friend, consider how our service can benefit your busy life, too. If you have a job that requires long hours or you work too far away to stop home to take your dog out, hiring a Petish dog runner to take your pet for a run around your neighborhood could be just the solution you’ve been looking for. If you feel guilty about keeping your pup cooped up all day, we’re available to spend time exercising your pet and adding a needed dimension to their life.
