“Positive reinforcement walker and trainer”

Being a Wag! Walker since May 2015, dogs and their parents have come to love when I take them out. Aside from being a Wag! Walker, I also care for dogs at the San Francisco SPCA. Besides being trained in dog walking, I am also trained in clicker training. I love making everyone’s dog day a pawsome day and I look forward to making yours too.

“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 became an official dog owner at a young age when I was given a husky for my 13th birthday. Ever since, I have had many experiences caring for all kinds of dogs. The history of breeds I have cared for range from small dogs such as terriers and chihuahuas to large dogs including pit bulls and bulldogs. My volunteer experience includes working at the Linda Blair WorldHeart Foundation (LBWF). During my time at this animal shelter, I cleaned, walked, and fed many dogs who were rescued.
