We’re different. In a good way.


The Dog Nerd is Frederick, Maryland’s premier dog and pet sitting service.
By coming to your home, your dogs are spared the stress of traveling to a stranger’s house or a noisy kennel. Instead of cement floors or wire crates, they are able to sleep on their own couch, or in bed with their sitter. By staying home, they are not exposed to infectious diseases or the sounds of other stressed animals.

Hi! I’m Gabby Scott, founder of The Dog Nerd. I live in Downtown Frederick with my three awesome dogs: Gus, Beowulf, and Taco. Gus’s struggles with being kenneled inspired me to find a better way to care for and enrich our dogs’ lives.
I have over a decade of professional pet care experience, Insurance, Canine CPR certification, and continuing education to better serve you and your pets.
