Hello! My name is Hailey and I am a second-year student at CSU Monterey Bay. Currently, I am studying to become an elementary school teacher, but I am also interested in journalism, and have even considered becoming a veterinarian. I have always been an animal lover and am great with dogs of varying sizes, temperaments, and ages. I have a ten-year-old golden retriever named Nala at home, so I have grown up around dogs and because of that definitely consider myself to be a "dog person." I also have experience working with animals of more difficult temperaments and have much compassion and patience when it comes to working with animals. I am flexible with scheduling and am willing to do recurring walks with your dog if that is what works best for you. I have my own transportation and am very reliable; you can count on me to get your dog out and walking!

Hello fellow tail-WAGgers. If you are looking to find a trusted friend for your dog who will reciprocate that love that they give you when you can’t be there, I'm right here! My name is Jackie and I learned how to run on four legs before I learned to walk on two. I’ll be your dog’s best friend(other than you, of course). Your dog is in good hands with me—or should I saw paws?

“Hello everyone! Thank you for visiting my profile.”

At 12 years of age, I started a dog walking business in my neighborhood. This is what really exposed me to dogs of all sorts of shapes and sizes. Later on in life, I knew that animals had a special place in my heart so I’ve dedicated my time to learn more about caring for them. I am currently a vet assistant majoring in Animal Science at Cal Poly. I’ve worked in dog hotels, wildlife centers & animal shelters. I love what I do and I am dedicated in being the best dog walker/sitter for your pet.

"The world would be a better place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog." My love for animals began at a very early age. There hasn’t been a time in my life when pets weren’t a part of it. I don`t have a doggy right now as I am investing my time and resources towards my career but I am happy that Wag gives me an opportunity to share love and care with dogs whenever I have a free time.

“I’ll treat your pups as though they’re my own!”

Hi! I'm Tara, and I attend school at Cal Poly studying sociology and minoring in music. I have a 12 year old Beagle named Ollie at home in OC and I love taking him on walks as well as spending time with him outdoors. Unfortunately, I don’t have a pup in town with me here, so wag is perfect for me. I am an experienced dog walker and I do well with all kinds of dogs. I have a house with a yard for your pup to run around in if you need a sitter, and my roommates are all dog lovers, too!

Dog Walking in Atascadero

Atascadero is a California oasis, filled with a vibrant and watery area surrounded by the southern desert. A lot of the farmlands have today been converted into public parks and fields, which have become dog-friendly places to bring your pup to run, play and enjoy the day outside.

The Heilmann Regional Park is the largest park in the city, with 102 acres of open grassy fields, desert space, forested trails, recreational fields, and a dog park! The dog park is in the north end of the park, and provides a fenced-in area for off-leash play. There is a crushed-stone terrain, with separate areas for large and small dogs, picnic tables, a pavilion, and double-gated entrances. Outside of the park, there are 2.3 miles of paved trails to enjoy with your pup while they are on a leash, with access to enclosed tennis fields, picnic tables, water fountains, and clean-up stations at the dog park.

The Atascadero Lake Park is one of the most popular parks in the city, even to dog-walkers thanks to its gorgeous lakeside location, shaded area, and open space to play in. The park has paddle boats, a playground, a volleyball court, a large pavilion, water fountains, benches, and restrooms. Leash up Fido before coming here to enjoy a gorgeous day out where you can run, play, and walk with your pup.

Beautiful lakes, large parks, and 3 animal hospitals will make living and visiting Atascadero a great experience for you and Fido!
