    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!

    “Worry not, I’m here to take your dog out on a walk”

    Hi! To begin, my name is Ezequiel! I was born and raised in San Francisco. Since I was a kid, I’ve owned multiple pets. My first dog was a Chihuahua named Baby. Next, was a Border Collie mix named Sierra. After they passed, we rescued a Pitador mix named Nala, who’s currently seven years old. So it goes without saying, I’m a natural when it comes to dog walking. With an customer approval rating of 4.97, I promise your pup will be in good hands. I look forward to meeting your pooch!

    Hi! Growing up I had all types of pets. However, dogs have always held a special place in my heart. I have two small chihuahua mixes, Peter and Jupiter. I worked as a pet sitter and dog walker in Philadelphia and now in San Francisco. Thanks for allowing me to spend time with your loved ones!

    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.

    “My whisper is one your dog won’t forget!!”

    Hi, I'm Peggy! I've always loved animals and been mother to two dogs for over ten years. I have experience in caring for both large and small dogs and always make an effort to connect with every dog I encounter. I love the outdoors and discovering nature and doing so in the company of your dog would be a great honor. My goal is to keep your dog fit, happy and looking forward to his next walk!

    My name is Lisa and I'm a dog owner and lover! I have volunteered for a local dog rescue for the last 6 years including fostering over 150 dogs. I have 3 of my own fur babies. Roxy is a 7 year old German Shepherd I've had since she was a pup. I adopted Peetie my AMSTAFF bully boy as well as my blind Shih tzu Wink. I used to foster up to 6 dogs at a time. Now that I have 3 dogs, I usually foster 1-2 dogs at a time. I have a lot of experience with all sorts of breeds, ages and temperaments. I'm great with special needs dogs. I have experience training and handling dogs from all sorts of backgrounds and challenges. I've rehabilitated many dogs that have not been treated well and taught them to trust and enjoy life again! I joined Wag to do something I love the most; spending time with dogs! Your dog and I will have a great time on our walk.
