    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. Safety is always my number one concern; your dog's needs come before all else when they are in my care. I look forward to taking your best friend around the neighborhood!

    “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!.

    My name is William and I am a huge dog lover! I have experience working at a large dog hotel, pet-sitting, and have been volunteering with Spay Neuter Action Project for two years where I have become friends with many rescued Chihuahuas. I'm familiar with almost all dog breeds ranging from 4-150+ pounds and enjoy walking, jogging, playing, or just hanging out! I have an Akita named Kaelei and my fiancée has a Chihuahua named Pinto Bean who has become one of my best friends! I also have experience with performing health checks and administering medications to dogs of all sizes and ages. I'm always very prompt and reliable and can't wait to meet your dog!

    “Committed to Excellence”

    I'm Michael. I'm an Encinitas local. Huge dog lover of all breeds. Started taking care of my neighbors dogs at the age of 8, along with owning dogs of my own my whole life. I've owned two terriers and a pit. I love staying active and the outdoors, so I usually take them on walks and runs by the beach, and hang out at the dog park. Looking forward to meeting you and your dog!

    Hi! I work in environmental consulting as a wildlife biologist all over California. When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time at home dog sitting and walking dogs. I have always worked with animals, including 2 years at an exotic wildlife rescue and had dogs from a young age. I have a degree in biology and much of my coursework focused on animal behavior.

    “The most experienced walker you’ll find on here!”

    I enjoy exercising with my pack! I have 4 years of experience walking/boarding dogs and have established a client list that covers 30-40 hrs/week for me. I am a reliable traveling dog walker who would love to get some new clients and I know that Wags is a great platform for that. I do live at a home with a fenced in yard and I walk the dogs I board daily at a hiking trail nearby!

    If you're in a city that's actually named Oceanside, chances are, you're going to want to hang out by the ocean. Knowing you, you won't want to do that without your pup, either. Luckily, there's a special spot for you and your pooch to enjoy the salty air and beach-side atmosphere. The Strand, as the locals call it, is a boardwalk path that runs a mile parallel to the ocean where you and your (leashed) pup can leisurely walk and bond. While there aren't any beaches directly in Oceanside that allow your pup to roam freely, you and your doggo can visit neighboring beaches like Ocean Beach, Cardiff State Beach, and Del Mar's Dog Beach if Fido needs to put his paws in the sand.

With wrap-around fences and an off-leash policy, you and your pup can glide across the AstroTurf together and enjoy a mutual frolic. This park is maintained by the North County Humane Society, so they're sticklers about keeping it clean. Also, only pooches with vaccinations, who have been spayed or neutered, and are licescened are allowed to use this free park. With tons of space, plenty of goodnatured neighbors, shade, grass, and water, this park is the perfect place for you and your best friend to spend some time together.
