    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!

    “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!

    Hi! Growing up I had all types of pets. However, dogs have always held a special place in my heart. I have two small chihuahua mixes, Peter and Jupiter. I worked as a pet sitter and dog walker in Philadelphia and now in San Francisco. Thanks for allowing me to spend time with your loved ones!

    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.

    “My whisper is one your dog won’t forget!!”

    Hi, I'm Peggy! I've always loved animals and been mother to two dogs for over ten years. I have experience in caring for both large and small dogs and always make an effort to connect with every dog I encounter. I love the outdoors and discovering nature and doing so in the company of your dog would be a great honor. My goal is to keep your dog fit, happy and looking forward to his next walk!

    My name is Lisa and I'm a dog owner and lover! I have volunteered for a local dog rescue for the last 6 years including fostering over 150 dogs. I have 3 of my own fur babies. Roxy is a 7 year old German Shepherd I've had since she was a pup. I adopted Peetie my AMSTAFF bully boy as well as my blind Shih tzu Wink. I used to foster up to 6 dogs at a time. Now that I have 3 dogs, I usually foster 1-2 dogs at a time. I have a lot of experience with all sorts of breeds, ages and temperaments. I'm great with special needs dogs. I have experience training and handling dogs from all sorts of backgrounds and challenges. I've rehabilitated many dogs that have not been treated well and taught them to trust and enjoy life again! I joined Wag to do something I love the most; spending time with dogs! Your dog and I will have a great time on our walk.

    I'm a lifetime animal lover. Whether it's playing with ferrets or training horses, I have experience with all sorts of furry creatures. Dogs have always been my favorite animals to play with - I've walked Newfoundlands to Chihuahuas. It doesn't matter how big or small, young or old, my priority is letting them have the most fun as safely as possible.

    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!

    Since 1983, Buffalo Bill's Brewery has mastered the art of craft brewing and IPAs.  You and your top dog can dine together in their outdoor seating area. 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!

There will also be a costume contest - human, you go as Fido, Fido go as your person, how pawsome will your twosome be? Plenty of vendors will be on-hand, along with many adorable, adoptable dogs, and silent auctions. And be warned all you Dalmatians out there - you can even get your photo taken with CRUELLA de Vil!
