Hi! My name is Rebecca and I am an animal lover by nature. I grew up surrounded by animals and raised a Border-Collie mix pup to live a long, healthy and happy 16 years! I have walked dogs, house-sat, and cared for all kinds of pets for over 16 years. Obedience classes & agility training courses were part of the growing up process with my own dog, Sara. Mostly we had a fun, goofy time just playing. She went everywhere with me! Since she passed away, I take any chance I can to be around my canine pals. I've always had an affinity for dogs large & small, with boundless energy or a calm disposition. I know how important it is to have your dog(s) well-cared for while you are busy or traveling so I am here to help! I am always up for a leisurely stroll in the neighborhood, brisk walk or challenging hike. Whatever your needs are I can meet them. I feel very fortunate to be able to walk a variety of dogs. It would be my great pleasure to meet your dog and make a new friend!

Hi! To begin, my name is Ezequiel! I was born and raised in San Francisco. Since I was a kid, I’ve owned multiple pets. My first dog was a Chihuahua named Baby. Next, was a Border Collie mix named Sierra. After they passed, we rescued a Pitador mix named Nala, who’s currently seven years old. So it goes without saying, I’m a natural when it comes to dog walking. With an customer approval rating of 4.97, I promise your pup will be in good hands. I look forward to meeting your pooch!
