Hello, my name’s Ally and I’ve been a Bay Area dog walker for a year and a half. I have experience walking all breeds, sizes, ages, and energy levels, and I often switch between running and walking easily, depending on your dog’s interest, health, or activity level. I look forward to meeting your pup!

I'm a recent SFSU graduate that loves dogs. I grew up with a variety of dogs (some my own) making me well-rounded with all sorts of breeds. I'm interested in both you and your dog's happiness; I want to be able to give your dog the attention, exercise, and love they need/deserve while giving you the ease of mind knowing that your dog's in good hands.

Hi, I'm Sarah! I'm studying early childhood development. I came home after four years of traveling to my childhood home to see my parents... and our three dogs allocated to a small dusty corner of the house. They were neglected, unsocialized, ridden with fleas and toxins, overweight, and unhappy. My heart couldn't take the scene. Ever since then we have been building a routine and our best life. My mission is to advocate for our furry friends and to give as many as I can my love!

My name is Mitra and I have a BA in psychology and more than 20 years experience working with dogs. I have raised service dog puppies, managed a dog kennel and dog daycare, worked as a dog trainer conducting basic obedience and drop in puppy socials, and have also worked and volunteered in animal shelters taking care of shelter dogs and cats, as well as assisting veterinarians with medicating and spay/neuter surgeries. I have grown up with dogs my whole life and have seen them from puppyhood to adulthood. In the past I worked with my poodle fornpet therapy at a hospice, and competed in AKC agility competitions with my previous australian shepherd. I currently reside with my two dogs Poet (an australian shepherd) and Trooper (a border collie/labrador cross we adopted from a local shelter). I am comfortable with dogs of all sizes, ages, and breeds. As a dog owner myself, I know the safety of your dog is very important and I will make sure your pet is properly leashed before leaving and will always take precautions with gates and door so they are safe before and after their walks!

“I love and care for dogs like mine own.”

Hiya! I am a college student/nanny who believes she still has to much time on her hands! I love pets and especially dogs. but unfortunately I can not have one due to some relatives being allergic. So to fill the void of wanting a dog I figure walking and playing with other people dogs would be the next best thing! I do have experience playing and walking dogs Even though i do not have one. I tend to take my cousins dogs out often.

Dog Boarding in Castroville

Castroville may be better known as the Artichoke Center of the World, but it’s also a pretty special part of the country for dogs and their owners. Situated on the northern tip of Monterey County, Castroville is surrounded by a plethora of dog-friendly attractions and activities. Everywhere you go, it seems there’s a dog walk, park, event, hotel, or tourist site just around the corner.

That’s great news for locals and visitors alike, while it also means the dogs in Castroville and surrounds can always rely on a helping paw whenever they need it. The SPCA for Monterey County has been serving the region’s animals since 1905, opening its doors to dogs, cats, and a wide variety of other creatures in need. Not only does it help unwanted dogs find loving homes, but it also provides lifesaving veterinary treatment to sick or injured animals and a free behavior hotline to help owners raise well-behaved dogs.

Animal Friends Rescue Project (AFRP) is another local non-profit dedicated to finding forever homes for stray, abandoned, and abused animals. Based in nearby Pacific Grove, it provides adoption and transport services for more than 1,200 dogs each year. And with a network of approximately 400 volunteers to call on, it’s clear that the welfare of companion animals in this part of the world is in good hands.

Setting out from Monterey State Historic Park, this walk helps the SPCA care for more than 5,500 homeless animals each year, with the ultimate goal of one-day ending pet homelessness in the county. Make sure you remember to register for the event so you can raise money and awareness of the excellent work the SPCA does, and then get your pooch ready for a tail-wagging good time!
