Hi! My name is Rebecca and I am an animal lover by nature. I grew up surrounded by animals and raised a Border-Collie mix pup to live a long, healthy and happy 16 years! I have walked dogs, house-sat, and cared for all kinds of pets for over 16 years. Obedience classes & agility training courses were part of the growing up process with my own dog, Sara. Mostly we had a fun, goofy time just playing. She went everywhere with me! Since she passed away, I take any chance I can to be around my canine pals. I've always had an affinity for dogs large & small, with boundless energy or a calm disposition. I know how important it is to have your dog(s) well-cared for while you are busy or traveling so I am here to help! I am always up for a leisurely stroll in the neighborhood, brisk walk or challenging hike. Whatever your needs are I can meet them. I feel very fortunate to be able to walk a variety of dogs. It would be my great pleasure to meet your dog and make a new friend!

Dog Walking in Diablo

Diablo is a small town in Contra Costa County, California, about 80 miles southwest of the state capital of Sacramento. Covering just 1.4 square miles of land, it is a quaint little town where you will have time to relax, unwind and enjoy some quiet with your pup. There aren’t any vets or animal hospitals in the town of Diablo, but there are five in neighboring Danville, so help is never far away if your beloved furry pal falls ill on your travels.

When you arrive, get to know the area with a little on-lead walk together through the streets and check out the shops that line the main road. You have a spectatular view of Mount Diablo and its subsidiary peaks from town too, so bring your camera! Mount Diablo’s peak is an almighty 3,849 feet tall and appears as a double pyramid shape, standing out amongst the otherwise low elevation.

The Los Cerros Fire Trail runs north to south along the border of Diablo and Danville, and is a great track to take your dog for an on-lead walk. It is out-and-back, so remember how far you have walked as you need to return the same distance! 

The word “Diablo” is Spanish for ‘devil” – but don’t let that put you off visiting this lovely little town. The gateway to many puptastic things to do, it is well worth stopping in!

Osage Station Park in Danville is a 35-acre park best known for its beautiful memorial rose garden. Pets are allowed, but keep your pup on a lead and always clean up after him as you move through the grounds and enjoy the facilities. There is ample space here for a nice walk – see if you can find the three osage orange trees left from an old orchard that give the park its name. Picnic places are also aplenty here, so take time to relax here and enjoy the surroundings. There is also a great little children’s play area and grills available if you fancy cooking up a storm.

Canine Corral Dog Park in Danville’s Hap Magee Ranch Park is the place to go for some off-lead puppy fun. Set over 1.5 acres and divided into two separate fenced areas, this park is pup paradise! It is free to use and includes a water feature, benches for you to relax at and some shade for sunny days. Be aware that the dog park is closed Tuesday’s for maintenance. Hap Magee Ranch Park is worth exploring too, set over 16 acres of oak, pine and sycamore forest and open play spaces. Your dog will need to go back on the lead once you leave the dog park, but Fido will love checking out the wider park with you too.

Sycamore Valley Park in Danville is another beautiful green space to visit with your dog. This park has a dedicated open off-leash area where your pup can crazy and have a really good run, however the area is not fenced, so make sure your dog will obey commands before letting him loose. Bring his favourite ball or Frisbee for some added fun, or take a walk with him through the meadow while he wanders and sniffs his way around. Bring water for you both and your clean up bags too. Dogs are not permitted on the trails or at the ball fields at Sycamore Valley Park
