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!

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.

Dog Walking in Emeryville

Situated between Berkley and Oakland, Emeryville is a quaint small town with family and Fido-friendly activities. Take your pooch for a walk on Point Emery and enjoy the views of the water and the Golden Gate Bridge. Just ten miles across the Bay, the lights of San Francisco create a beautiful backdrop while you stroll with Fido on a warm evening.  

Keeping your pooch happy and healthy is important, and Emeryville offers two veterinary clinics where your furry pal will receive compassionate emergency and routine care. If you and your pooch are trying to get healthier, check out the popular Bay Trail. You can begin your hike at the Emeryville Crescent Reserve, and continue along the shoreline for miles, admiring nature and enjoying the beauty of the area along the way. If you hike when the trail isn’t filled with people, your pup may enjoy a romp off leash where he can dip his feet into the cool water of the Bay.

Visiting the Bay is made even more convenient with six pup friendly hotels where both you and Fido can rest your heads. Hyatt House offers spacious accommodations where you can relax with your family and furry pal before exploring the city. Also located nearby, you and your pooch can enjoy a visit to the old-fashioned diner, Rudy’s Can’t Fail Café. Casual dining and comfort food are available with outdoor pup friendly patio seating.
