“Your Pup’s Best Friend. And Your Peace of Mind!”

I am Lauretta and I have had dogs, cats and horses all my life. I’m retired so, please think of me as your pup's doting 'aunt, grandma or step-mom.' I am reliable, trustworthy and I treat your pup as if they are my own. I know how hard it is to be busy and guilt ridden that your fur-baby is stuck at home. Well, there is nothing I like better than providing exercise, sniffing opportunities, companionship and fun for your pup.

“Dogs are my kind of people!”

I have over 20 years of experience owning, caring for and training many breeds of dog. I graduated with a BS in Zoology because working with animals has always been a passion of mine. My previous work as a veterinary technician has given me the insight required to properly care for and respect each dog’s individual needs. Dogs hold a special place in my heart, so I’m thrilled to have a job that gives me the opportunity to make them smile everyday.

As a long-time pet owner, and former animal nurse and dog trainer, I know just how important our pets are to us. And, as a teacher, I understand how much trust is required to share your children (2-legged or 4-legged) with a stranger, and what an amazing gift - and responsibility - this is. My general philosophy is to treat all beings with respect and empathy, and to look for qualities to appreciate, praise, and be grateful for. Life is too short to sweat the small stuff! As a walker, I let the dog dictate the exercise intensity and provide water breaks as needed. After walks, I provide fresh water and give a light massage to promote calm and relaxation. I also give puppies a gentle "pat-down" (check teeth, eyes, ears, palpate abdomen, lift tail, check unmentionables, and handle all 4 paws) to simulate and accustom them to vet and groomer handling. I'm currently working toward a Master's degree in teaching, so I'm a GREAT sitter because I can spend a lot of time with your pup while I study. And, of course, I need to take frequent breaks to rest my brain, which is perfectly accomplished by taking a walk, playing, giving a doggy massage, doing some doga (doggy yoga), or simply cuddling. My training, education, and 25-ish years of experience with dogs allow me to provide special assistance such as dispensing medications or supporting an established training or behavior modification program. I'm also able to handle dogs that less experienced walkers may find difficult to work with. I love the special connection that I've have with dogs since childhood, and I'm so grateful to have found Wag! because I'm able to share that connection while serving my community - AND I get paid for it! Thank you for using Wag!, and for providing pet-lovers like me with a fun, fulfilling job!

Dog Walking in Alpine

Located in San Diego County, Alpine is a gorgeous census-designated place in the mountains. This little town is bordered by the Cleveland National Forest, Kumeyaay Nation reservation, Viejas and Sycuan, and El Cajon. The environment is described as a Switzerland-like wonderland under forty miles from San Diego.

There are two dog-friendly lodging options in Alpine: Ayres Lodge Alpine and a range of Alpine Airbnb Rentals. Both accommodations welcome dogs of all sizes and do not limit the number of dogs that are allowed to stay. The Airbnb Rentals do not charge a pet fee; however, Ayres Lodge Alpine charges a small fee.

The local casino is near the hotel, just three miles outside of town, and only thirty miles from metropolitan San Diego. At Ayres Lodge, you’ll also receive free breakfast and WiFi amongst other amenities. In the Airbnb rentals, individual houses determine specific “house rules” for dogs, but overall, the local Airbnb’s receive high ratings and are very affordable.

Three restaurants in Alpine are dog-friendly. From breakfast at Franco’s Flapjack Breakfast House to dinner at Rubio’s Coastal Grill, Alpine is sure to have something for everyone to enjoy. Outside seating areas at these restaurants are dog-friendly.
