“Everything I own is covered in dog hair.”

I've always been the one who everyone calls for anything dog related. I've volunteered at shelters, have worked for a pet behaviorist's radio show, grew up with dogs, and currently have two awesome low-rider pit mix rescue pups of my own. I know how much our dogs can affect every aspect of our lives, and I'd like to help alleviate your stress by making sure your buddies are well cared for while you're out. Let me know if your pups would like to go walking with me soon. I can't wait to meet them!

I walked dogs in the summers growing up and I've been dog sitting for friends for the past 4 years whenever they leave town. My family has a dog as well (a Cavalier King Charles named Sawyer) who I'm very close with and have spent countless hours playing with and taking care of. I'm looking forward to meeting some new dogs!

Dog Walking in Encino

Encino is a large neighborhood of sunny Los Angeles, California, and is situated on the northern side of the Santa Monica Mountains. Being this close to the mountains, Encino offers many outdoor places for the adventurous pup, where wildlife can be a pawsome sight to see and sniff- from a distance, of course! For life's mishaps, or just routine care, Encino also features five veterinarians that can cater to all your dog’s health needs. 

If your dog is an outdoorsy type, then be sure to take him on a great hike along the Mandeville Canyon Fire Road Trail. The trail is wide and has more than enough room for everyone to enjoy it. Encino is also home to big beautiful parks that your dog is itching to visit with you. Take your pup to the Westridge-Canyonback Wilderness Park to explore and get some good sniffs in. The park is not only a great place to explore, but also has a small hike inside of it to help burn off some of your dog’s energy.

There are numerous dogtastic places that Fido can go with you to get a bite to eat in Encino, such as Coral Tree Café which offers great outdoor area that welcomes your dog to enjoy a delicious meal with you.
