“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.

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.

“I can’t wait to meet your dog!”

Hi, I'm Nicole! I grew up in a household with at least one dog, and at times, up to five. My dad likes to joke that I was 'raised by dogs.' I miss having my own, and I always jump at the opportunity to walk or dog sit for my friends and family. I like to lead an active lifestyle and meeting new dogs is one of my favorite activities. I look forward to meeting yours!

Dogs have been a huge part of my life since the day I was born. My household always had at least one dog, more often two or three, and I've loved them all dearly. I currently volunteer with San Francisco Animal Care and Control in pursuit of my passion for caring for animals. All I can hope to do is give back to them some amount of the love and good dogs bring into our world.

Hi! My name is Sylvia. I have volunteered at SF SPCA (adult dogs and puppies). I learned positive reinforcement training techniques that I use everyday. I have an 11-year-old Chihuahua mix, whom I adopted when she was 7. She used to be very shy, but with my training walks, she is doing much better. I am gentle with dogs, and only employ praises, treats and other force-free methods to work with your dog. When I'm walking your dog, I constantly watch his/her body language to make sure that he/she is comfortable and enjoying the walk. I always provide detailed walk reports. When appropriate, I give constructive feedback and suggestions as well. Hire me and I will treat YOUR dog like my own.

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.
