Hello! My name is Schea and I have been a dog owner for more than 8 years. I have owned large and small dogs and I am very excited to start walking your dog! I currently live in an apartment that doesn't allow animals, so this job is a way for me to spend time with dogs all day, get some exercise AND make money. It's a dream come true!

“The Dog Whisperer ;-)”

Pets are amazing creatures and make the best companions. In my life I’ve had dogs, cats, birds and even a monkey! I recently lost my shelter kitten, after 11 years, due an abscess in his gums. I miss him dearly. My daughter has two high energy pups that I help out with, so I am experienced with different levels of energy and temperaments. I look forward to meeting your furry loved on! Please contact me for questions, to ensure you feel safe about your pet being in my care.

Dog Walking in Forestville

Forestville is an unincorporated community with a bohemian spirit that has attracted many poets and artists since the 19th century. The city was originally named Forrestville after one of its founders, but at some point, the city dropped the second "r". The unofficial motto of this tiny town is "Forestville, the good life." Another fun fact: the bassist Ben McKee of the very famous band Imagine Dragons was born here in 1985. 

Forestville may be small, but there's certainly enough room for an animal hospital to take good care of your pooch in case of accident or emergency. 

If you're looking for a place where you and your furry baby can "ruff" it in Forestville, we recommend that you check out the Riverbend Resort RV Park & Campground. Hilton Park Family Campground also welcomes leashed, well-behaved dogs. If you and your pooch pre-fur more civilized options, you can check out some of the town's AirBnB rentals.

A good place where you can eat in the company of your dog is the Russian River Pub, where you can enjoy the kid- and dog-friendly atmosphere. Another great place that you can visit with your pup is the Twist Eatery. Both Forestville locations welcome leashed doggie diners at their outdoor seating areas.

If you don't have a problem driving around 29 miles to Downtown Petaluma, you'd be barking mad not to visit Lucchesi Park. This park is not fenced, but it allows off-leash doggos. There is a designated area where dogs are allowed to play off-leash during designated hours -- in the early mornings and early evenings. There are lots of geese, goats, and seagulls in this park, so make sure your dog plays well with other species! The park also has a small lake which you and Fido can explore -- but no swimming, please. Bring some water and waste bags with you.

DeTurk Round Barn Dog Park can be found around 10 miles from Forestville. If you're searching for a securely fenced dog park where your pooch can run free, look no further! The ground is only partly grassy and the park has a small amount of shade, but on the plus side, water and poop baggies are provided here. Be aware that the fence in the park is not very high, so if you have a large doggo that has mastered the art of running away, you might want to choose a different park.

California has some gorgeous dog-friendly beaches, and Dillon Beach, located 22 miles from Forestville, is just one of them! Most beaches only allow leashed dogs to explore with their owners, but Dillon Beach allows dogs off-leash as long as they respond well to voice commands. Running around in the sand chasing a frisbee will be the highlight of your dog's day! Don't forget to bring water, waste bags, and some pocket change to cover the parking fees. Dillon Beach is part of a community of the same name with a full-time population of ruffly 200 people.

If you want a unique experience for you and your pup, we recommend that you take the time to visit Russian River Adventures. How would you like to go canoeing down the Russian River with your furry baby in an inflatable canoe? The best part is that this magical adventure is located just 11 miles from Forestville! The trips are not difficult -- total beginners can take them. These kayak tours aren't guided, but before embarking on your journey, you'll get detailed instructions from the staff. If you decide to stop anywhere along the way, your pup is allowed to roam off-leash!

Villa Dog Park is another park where your dog can get some much-needed daily exercise. It's fairly close to Forestville, around 13 miles, and it's located in the northeast part of Healdsburg. The park is spacious and enriched with plenty of trees that provide shade. Water is provided, and in the warmer months, there is usually a kiddie pool for cooling off! There are benches and picnic tables for the dog owners to rest on. The double-gated entrance gives you extra security when leashing or unleashing your pup. Most of the park has a wood chip surface, but there is also an area with grass for the nature-loving doggos.
