Hello I'm Ariel, I have live with Animals all my life and I have to say dogs are my favorite animals! I started learning dog training when I was 12 years old before then I was reading any dog book I could find. To this day I still think it was the best class I have taken as it helped me understand my childhood dog Callisto better and has helped with many other dogs. I have lived with a taken care of dogs of different sizes, ages and temperaments and have found that patience and listening to body language is the key to making good friends man or beast.

Hi my name is Elijah, I’m 20 from Sacramento. I live in Los Angeles for school. In my lifetime I’ve had about 10 dogs in all shapes and sizes and I’ve taken care of them all by myself since I was a little kid. Unfortunately I don’t get to see the three dogs I have now at home often since I am away for school but I feel like this is a great opportunity to do something I love.

Howdy, I'm Evan! I've had a lifelong love of dogs, getting my first pup, a boston terrier/australian shepherd mix, at the age of 5. Since then I've had the pleasure of owning big dogs and little dogs of various temperaments, and trained a few to boot! I've pet-sat for friends and family many times, and I've always left those puppers just as happy and healthy as they were when the owner left. I can't wait to meet your furry friend and help them get the exercise they need and deserve!

Dog Boarding in Sacramento

Sacramento is one of the best cities for dogs anywhere in America, with a list of dog-friendly attractions, restaurants, and experiences taller than a Great Dane! There’s also a thriving community of dog and animal lovers that call Sacramento home, which is why the Californian capital boasts some truly inspirational animal rescue groups.

When dogs in Sacramento fall on hard times, one of the first organizations who can help is the Sacramento SPCA. This open-admission animal shelter accepts dogs regardless of their age, breed, health, or behavior, and aims to help every adoptable dog find a safe and happy home. Its mission is to foster a loving and compassionate communities for animals, and Sacramento SPCA has been striving towards this goal since 1894.

Over on Folsom Boulevard, Happy Tails Pet Sanctuary is another Sacramento animal rescue group working to protect the city’s pets. Founded in 1993, this volunteer group runs a no-kill, cage-free pet sanctuary and rescues abandoned dogs, abused dogs, and those at risk of euthanasia. Its mission is to protect and improve the lives of Sacramento’s homeless and abused dogs.

Recycled Pets NorCal is also entirely run by volunteers, and is dedicated to saving homeless pets. It works with shelters and rescue groups throughout California to help dogs in need find loving owners. By recycling unwanted pets into forever homes, it gives some of the less fortunate members of Sacramento’s canine population a second chance.
