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!

“A walk a day keeps the vet away!”

Hi! I'm Ellie and the most important fact to know about me is; I love animals! I moved to Oakland a few years ago all the way from rural New York. Growing up we always had at least two dogs at a time if not more, plus a whole bunch of other animals. Most recently I have been attending University for wildlife biology while I'm not studying I'm walking dogs. I am a natural with dogs of all sizes, some training experience, lots of energy for walks, and I can't wait to meet your best friend!

“Worry not, I’m here to take your dog out on a walk”

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!

I realized I loved dogs when my sister placed my dog, Maui on my lap nine years ago. I've met so many dogs and dog owners because of her and hope to meet and take care of many more. I've walked dogs for my neighbors and friends. I'm punctual, professional and understand from being a dog owner myself, the safety and well-being of your dog.

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!
