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!

Dog Boarding in San Rafael

San Rafael in Marin County, California is likely one of the most dog-friendly cities in the state! With a wealth of activity points, restaurants, and even nearby wineries and breweries that welcome our four-legged pals, you'll never lack for things to do with your furbabies in this beautiful and welcoming city.

In addition to a number of things to do in the area, there are some outstanding organizations as well! For example, Marin Humane is a group that serves Marin County as a whole and focuses on not only rescuing animals in need but also on finding them the perfect fur-ever homes for their specific personalities and health needs.

Another fine organization that provides plenty of happy wags on the way to new homes is Jessica's Haven, where volunteers work together to rehabilitate and rehome amazing pups for their new families. How is this accomplished? With lots of love and some of the most caring and amazing staff members you could ever meet!  

In nearby San Francisco, there is another rescue that is gaining quite a bit of praise. Wonder Dogs Animal Rescue has been rehoming lost pups for over 26 years! That amazing record has led to the rehabilitation and rehoming of thousands of homeless animals and they plan to save thousands more before they are done.

No matter where you go in Marin County, you're going to find plenty of animal lovers who want nothing more than to help the many homeless and injured dogs that they happen to come across - and that makes for a lot of wagging tails!
