“Positive reinforcement walker and trainer”

Being a Wag! Walker since May 2015, dogs and their parents have come to love when I take them out. Aside from being a Wag! Walker, I also care for dogs at the San Francisco SPCA. Besides being trained in dog walking, I am also trained in clicker training. I love making everyone’s dog day a pawsome day and I look forward to making yours too.

“The best dog walker in town!”

I became an official dog owner at a young age when I was given a husky for my 13th birthday. Ever since, I have had many experiences caring for all kinds of dogs. The history of breeds I have cared for range from small dogs such as terriers and chihuahuas to large dogs including pit bulls and bulldogs. My volunteer experience includes working at the Linda Blair WorldHeart Foundation (LBWF). During my time at this animal shelter, I cleaned, walked, and fed many dogs who were rescued.

I realized I loved dogs when my sister placed my dog, Maui on my lap nine years ago. I've met so many dogs and dog owners because of her and hope to meet and take care of many more. I've walked dogs for my neighbors and friends. I'm punctual, professional and understand from being a dog owner myself, the safety and well-being of your dog.

Dog Walking in El Cerrito

Originally a town created after the San Franscisco earthquake in 1906, El Cerrito has grown into a busy little city in Contra Costa County. The name El Cerrito means  ‘little hill,’ and locals and visitors love to head to the high parts of the city to admire the views of the Golden Gate Bridge and bay area. For dog lovers, there are six veterinary clinics and animal hospitals in case of emergency.

For dogs that love to explore the outdoors, El Cerrito is a city that doesn’t disappoint! At Alvarado Park, you can bring your pup to enjoy the green grass and trees that offer new surroundings to investigate. At this ancient Indian village site, there are also sniff-tastic trails you can hike that boast amazing views, as long as your dog is on leash. Located just beside Alvarado Park, you will also find the massive Wildcat Canyon Regional Park. This is a pawsome place to spend the day, with lush green surroundings throughout the year. Dogs are welcome to walk the trails in the park and are permitted to be off leash in certain open spaces, as long as they have learned good recall. 

So, pack your bags with water and treats and head for the hills of El Cerrito with your furry friend!
