Hello, I'm Stephen! I've been an avid dog lover since the moment I was born. Since then I've been sitting, boarding, and walking all the dogs that my friends have. I have experience from Australian Shepherds to little Rat Terriers, and adore all dogs of all shapes and sizes. It's been exciting getting to know all the different personalities these little guys can bring. I believe in having fun with puppers, but also demonstrating discipline with much love. It'd be a terrific pleasure to walk your dog and get to know another great thing that's a part of this world, thanks!

Dog Boarding in Hayward

Looking for a volunteer opportunity or maybe even a new, furry best friend?  Check out The Hayward Animal Shelter! Their mission is to care for Hayward County's pet population and educate the public on the importance of spaying and neutering pets.  It doesn't just cut down on the pet population; it can also lessen the risk of your pet getting ovarian or testicular cancers among other illnesses.  Pets that are chosen to be adopted must be spayed or neutered before leaving the shelter and all members of the animal's potential furever home must meet their new pet at the shelter.  All pets at the shelter also receive their vaccinations and a microchip.  The shelter is always in need of donations of your money or your time. It all goes right back into the shelter and the care of their wonderful, furry tenants!

Hey buddy, go take a hike - and don't forget Fido!  There are some on-leash trails that you can explore on this reserve. They offer shade and are generally not too crowded.  The off-leash trails are on paved roads, but do have a steady incline.  With over 6 miles of trails, you'll be able to see wildflowers a-plenty and potentially over 90 native species of trees, shrubs, and ferns!  The trails crawl through cool canyons for resting and up to rocky ridge tops where you can take in the view towards the bay and surrounding hills.  You can bark for joy here, as it is a great place to just be a dog!

While Fido enjoys some fresh water, you can check out the menu.  First things first, pick your brew, then pair your meal from there (this may take a while - they all sound DELICIOUS!).  How about a mouth-watering cheeseburger or a sandwich (like the brie and cranberry turkey, a seasonal favorite.) Decisions, decisions!  Whatever you choose, be prepared for a great meal and a one of a kind craft brew with your furry friend by your side.  No bones about it!
