“My best friends have 4 paws”

Hi, I'm Lyric. I'm a long-time Bay Area resident, and dog lover. Dogs have always been a part of my life, and I have many years of dog care under my belt, from puppy to senior, including special needs dogs. I have experience with many breeds, and know how to handle high-energy dogs. I love meeting new dogs and getting to know their charming (and often hilarious) personalities. Our dogs aren't pets, they are family, and you can count on me to treat them that way.

There is not much better than seeing a happy pup face and a wagging tail. I’m an avid hiker, lover of the outdoors and am athletic to keep up with any pup. I’m also patient and take my time with senior pups and those with special needs. I look forward to meeting your canine companion and the many adventures we will have together. Large, small, I walk them all! Certifications: Pet CPR and Pet First Aid

Dog Walking in Atherton

The town of Atherton is a very special place for pets. Ranked as the wealthiest city in America, this town’s furry residents definitely live in the lap of luxury. Atherton lies in San Mateo County, and is convenient to both San Francisco and San Jose. This town takes great pride in its natural resources, describing its general development plan as “to preserve the town’s scenic, rural, thickly wooded residential area with abundant open space”.  

The community’s pride and joy is the beautiful Holbrook Palmer Park, a 22-acre park which boasts activities for the whole pack.  This lovely public park welcomes leashed pets to stroll its lush gardens and scenic walking paths. Human children will be happy to know that there are plenty of activities for them as well, with features such as playgrounds, tennis courts, and a ball field. 

You and your furry pal can enjoy a nice lunch or dinner just one street over, at Celia’s Mexican Restaurant. This pawesome eatery has a large enclosed patio which is very pawpular with local pooches. Celia’s serves up Mexican fare daily, with favorites such as tacos, quesadillas, and churros. Go ahead and order a margarita too --when you have a fur-iend as good as yours, who needs a reason to celebrate?

Located on Neptune Drive in San Leandro, Oyster Bay Regional Shoreline is home to 157 acres of pure puppy heaven. This area was originally a landfill, but since has been reclaimed by nature (with a little help from the city). Once a desolate dumping ground, this beautiful bay has been transformed into a gorgeous recreation area that rivals any preserve. Here, your pal can enjoy a leash-free swim in the picturesque bay or romp freely on one of the expansive off-leash dirt paths. Be sure to leash your pal before heading out on the paved trails (or you may end up with a ticket!). With fields pawfect for fetch, landscaped picnic areas, and scenic panorama views, your pup will surely fall head over tail for this park!

Protective puppy parents will be happy to hear that Pillar Point is a protected bay, and has been deemed one of the safest harbors in the US. The marina is always bustling with activity — fishing boats pulling in with the morning’s fresh catch, sea lions playing on the rocks, pelicans overhead searching for fish, and so much more. There are many dogs here (especially on Saturday mornings), so your pup will never have to play alone!
