“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.

I love animals! My sister runs All Animal Rescue and I have fostered dogs many times. I currently have a Rottweiler (100lbs) and a Pocket Pit bull (53lbs). I have experience with dog aggression towards people, other dogs/cats/birds etc. I have owned dogs my entire life and enjoy getting them out and about to stretch their legs and get some energy out.

“Aspiring firefighter, current EMT, and dog walker!”
My passion for animals extends to when I was a child. The one who has really impacted me is our family pug. I self trained her at the age of 14 on how to sit, lay down, and learn to do her business outside. I even trained our rabbit when loose in the backyard when to go “home” (his cage)! Needless to say I have a big heart for all animals. When it comes to the best for your best friend you can count on me 110%! Feel free to message me with any questions you may have.

I have always been a huge fan of pets and animals ever since I was a child. I believe that allowing dogs to get fresh air and exercise is essential to both their physical and emotional well-being.

I am a dog lover and an experienced Wag walker and boarder! I’ve had pet dogs since I was born and have dog sat since I was 10 years old. I have lots of free time throughout my day, perfect for potty breaks and play time. I am willing to run, walk, play, or just relax with any dog. I have walked all kinds of dogs and have boarded everything from dachshunds to German shepherds to pit bulls. Your dog(s) would bring me so much joy and I look forward to being able to take care of them!

As child, we always had dogs in our family. I always enjoyed walking and taking care of them. I don't have a dog now and I miss it. I would enjoy walking other people's dogs. Dogs seem to know that I like them and they seem to like me.

Known as the Garlic capital of the world, the city of Gilroy CA looks to the local police department to help lost dogs find their way home. The lost mutts are housed in six outdoor kennels and if no-one comes to claim the dog after five days, they are taken to the nearby San Martin shelter. Here, the dogs receive good care and are put up for adoption in the hopes of finding a new home.
The Santa Clara animal shelter works in conjunction with Gilroy CA, running an affordable spay/neuter program for dogs - plus it’s free for all Pit Bull breeds and some other larger dogs. This service is offered by a few of the local vets including the San Jose Animal Hospital located at 940 Berryessa Road, San Jose and the Animal Clinic 45 Cronin Drive, Santa Clara.
Surrendered pets from the Gilroy, CA area arrive periodically and all effort is made to re-home them. The shelter has a No-kill policy and is a recipient of the infamous Maddie’s fund, founded in 1997 by Dave and Cheryl Duffield and named after their adored Miniature Schnauzer. These animal angels have donated vast amounts of money to help animal shelters fulfil their promise of a no-kill, countrywide policy. The generosity of this couple helps this affiliated animal shelter tend to sick, injured dogs with an inspirational medicine program in place. Lost and ill-treated dogs from the city of Gilroy, CA are in good hands, as this shelter works alongside wonderful non-profit groups like Jake's Wish Dog Rescue – All Creatures Great And Small Animal Rescue.
