I started walking & caring for our dogs, and others, when I was around 8 years old, and have loved doing so at every opportunity since! I'm a very athletic person who goes to the gym & trail running at least 4 days per week so, I'd love the opportunity to keep your dog healthy & fit as well!

“My best friends have 4 paws ”

Hi, I'm Lyric. I'm a life-long Bay Area resident, and dog lover. I live in San Jose with my dog (and best friend) Boomer. I have many years of dog care under my belt, from puppy to senior, including special needs dogs. I have experience with many breeds, and know how to handle high-energy dogs. I love meeting new dogs and getting to know their charming (and often hilarious) personalities. Our dogs aren't pets, they are family, and you can count on me to treat them that way.

Hi My name is Patrick, I grew up in the Bay Area and I have been a dog lover my whole life. Growing up I had many dogs, Big and Small. To me playing with dogs never gets old. Running around the yard with them, belly rubs, tug of wars I love to do it all. I've always had a connection with dogs and my mom likes to call me the Dog Whisperer since dogs tend to calm down and behave more often in my presence. I like to get outside and enjoy the daytime and I'd love to bring your pup companion with me while your away.

Hello my name is Nolan and I've had dogs for most of my life, 7 to be exact. At one point I was living with 4 dogs. 3 of which were smaller and the 4th a medium sized golden doodle. So I'm no stranger to different types of needs, energy levels and balancing the love to many at one time. I not only have years of experience with my own but years of experience of also being entrusted to walk and watch some of my Neighbors' dogs when they go out of town.

Dog Boarding in Alum Rock

A neighborhood of San Jose, Alum Rock is just a stone’s throw away from some of California’s best dog-friendly experiences. And with the city being home to a large population of animal lovers, there are also plenty of excellent animal welfare and rescue groups when local dogs need help or a second chance.

Companion Animal Rescue Effort (CARE) is just one of those groups. Founded in 1987, CARE is a non-profit animal rescue organization based in Santa Clara County. Run on a no-kill philosophy, CARE is staffed entirely by compassionate volunteers who work tirelessly to save pets in need.

Following their philosophy, CARE looks after its rescue animals in a network of nurturing foster homes. This long-term approach ensures that animals receive top-quality nutrition, medical attention, and care until they can be matched with loving, responsible owners.

Jake’s Wish Dog Rescue is another local rescue organization working to improve the lives of canines in and around the Alum Rock area. This San Jose group is run by volunteers and is committed to rescuing abandoned dogs who would otherwise be euthanized in shelters due to lack of space.

Like Care, it aims to provide each rescued animal with a feeling of security through a robust, in-home fostering program, with each dog receiving all the essential love and support it needs while it waits to find a forever home. Jake’s Wish Dog Rescue also offers information and education on responsible dog ownership to help reduce homeless pet numbers, and donations are more than welcome to help it pursue its goal to create a world where every dog has a home.
