Hi! I'm Ellie and the most important fact to know about me is; I love animals! I moved to Oakland a few years ago all the way from rural New York. Growing up we always had at least two dogs at a time if not more, plus a whole bunch of other animals. Most recently I have been attending University for wildlife biology while I'm not studying I'm walking dogs. I am a natural with dogs of all sizes, some training experience, lots of energy for walks, and I can't wait to meet your best friend!

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!

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.
