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.

I am in love with all animals, especially dogs! I have had dogs my entire adult life as I cannot live without them. My dream is to have a rescue ranch. Whenever I am walking, sitting or boarding an animal they are my top priority. I have gone through training with several of my own dogs and feel that I have good intuition when it comes to their safety and well being.

Dog Walking in Fairfax

Fairfax is a small town in Marin County, about 16 miles north of San Francisco. The city was voted “Best Little Town in Marin” two years in a row, which came as no surprise to the local pup-ulation. This area has a unique mash-up of natural features and suburban convenience, with 8 bark parks, several hiking trails, and over 100 pet-friendly eateries (in just 10 miles)! There are also several vets in the vicinity to keep locals in paw-fect shape!

The community takes great care to maintain its beautiful ecosystems, and is the only city in the US that holds a Green Party majority. This eco-friendly metropolis is part of the Open Space District, which encompasses 62,000 acres of mountains, redwood forests, and other vital habitats.

A favorite feature of the Open Space Preserve is beautiful Cascade Canyon. This canyon is located on the Fairfax side, and is home to many species of unique plants and animals. Leashed pups are welcome to explore the various habitats of the canyon and climb to the top of the lovely Cascade Falls. 

For more advanced hiking, check out Cataract Falls Trail. This moderate to difficult trail is great for high-energy puppers and experienced hikers. It is a favorite spot for local photographers and boasts amazing views of Alpine Lake and the falls. The best times to visit are in winter or spring (or after heavy rainfall) when the falls are at their peak flow.
