    Hi. I am originally from Texas but have lived in La Jolla for 18 years. My love for animals started at a very young age, as I grew up around horses, cows, goats and plenty of dogs. I have had Great Danes, Beauviers, Labs, German Shepherds, etc. Presently, I have a Havanese, a Maltipoo and a Schnauzer. I don't have kids so my pups are my world and I spoil them rotten. God gave me a special ability to be able to read dogs and make them feel comfortable and at ease. I was a personal trainer and avid runner most of my life, so I really enjoy running, walking and playing with all dogs!

    Hello! My name is Jessica. I'm a Marine Veteran living in Mira Mesa and I'm currently a student working towards completing my Bachelor's degree. I grew up on a farm raising and caring for lots of different animals, including multiple dogs and cats. I love animals!Although I don't have my own pet dog at the moment, my roommates do so I live with 3 dogs that I help take care of. I have experience with taking dogs on walks, jogs, and hikes, and am capable of taking more than one if you have multiple fur babies! I also have experience with house/pet sitting over an extended duration watching over multiple dogs.

    Hello, I’m Danica. I'm west of The 5 in beautiful Encinitas. Last 3 years as a doggy daycare attendant at a dog daycare in NorCal. I have a great amount of dog care experience and a great passion for dogs and physical activity. I have my own pup, a handsome Boston terrier named Django whom I love with all my heart.

    “Walking your best friend is an honor & privilege.”

    Woof! I’m Susan (Pet Sitter/Dog Walker) and I enjoy being part of a dog's journey. I am thrilled to have the time for walking and playing wi/ dogs. I have 1 dog whom I adopted at Animal Shelter after he was returned three times. I can assure you that I will treat your family members, like they were my own. Not only because I'm an animal lover but because it's how I want my family member to be treated. I am used to pullers & enjoy all dogs like pullers, reactors, runners and strollers!.

I have an Akita named Kaelei and my fiancée has a Chihuahua named Pinto Bean who has become one of my best friends!
