Hello! My name is Disney. I have a Boston Terrier named Kash and a Pitlab named Smoke. I began working with pets when I worked for Ry the Pet Guy in Redwood City back in 2010. I previously owned and operated a pet sitting business in Alaska called Dutch Tails LLC. I looked after many dogs, many of which I took on gorgeous hikes through the tundra. I currently work for Dogtopia, a dog daycare and boarding facility in Santa Ana. I am very excited to look after your furry loved one!

Hi my name is Kevin, I'm 31, and I LOVE dogs! I used to own a French bulldog named Cera, and since she passed away, I'm not quite ready to own a new one, but I love that Wag gives me an opportunity to still spend time with dogs all while providing such a priceless service to their owners! I have turned into the 'dog walker' in my group of friends as of late. I've been walking a French Bulldog/Boston Terrier mix named Bogie, a Golden Retriever/Shepherd mix named Hauss, and a King Charles Cavalier named Kingston most recently. I work from home running my own dialogue facilitation/process design business so I've got a mostly flexible schedule to meet with your pooch!

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!
