Hello I'm Ariel, I have live with Animals all my life and I have to say dogs are my favorite animals! I started learning dog training when I was 12 years old before then I was reading any dog book I could find. To this day I still think it was the best class I have taken as it helped me understand my childhood dog Callisto better and has helped with many other dogs. I have lived with a taken care of dogs of different sizes, ages and temperaments and have found that patience and listening to body language is the key to making good friends man or beast.

Hi my name is Elijah, I’m 20 from Sacramento. I live in Los Angeles for school. In my lifetime I’ve had about 10 dogs in all shapes and sizes and I’ve taken care of them all by myself since I was a little kid. Unfortunately I don’t get to see the three dogs I have now at home often since I am away for school but I feel like this is a great opportunity to do something I love.

I have been an animal lover since I can remember. As a child, we always had at least one dog and at least one cat at home, as well as a family horse. Currently, I have four fur babies (in addition to my human son), and a few scaly and amphibious ones, too! Of my fur babies, three are rescues, and all considered part of the family. I look forward to treating your fur baby as I do my own: spoiling him or her with the love and affection that they deserve in your absence. ~Melisa

Howdy, I'm Evan! I've had a lifelong love of dogs, getting my first pup, a boston terrier/australian shepherd mix, at the age of 5. Since then I've had the pleasure of owning big dogs and little dogs of various temperaments, and trained a few to boot! I've pet-sat for friends and family many times, and I've always left those puppers just as happy and healthy as they were when the owner left. I can't wait to meet your furry friend and help them get the exercise they need and deserve!

“Dogs smile with their tails. <3”

As a dog parent myself, I know how crucial it is to know your fur baby is being taken care of. I have dog-sat and walked for many different breeds, sizes, and tempers. I am comfortable with all ages and learning levels. I have a great ball throwing arm for fetch and belly rubs! Also great with other animals! ^_^

Dog Walking in Hood

California is anything but ordinary -- its warm weather and unique outdoor opportunities make it a furrific place to be a dog owner. Although the state's oceanside muttropolises are the most popular tourist destinations, even California's smallest towns are alive with culture, soul, and scenic beauty. Hood, California is a tiny town with less than 300 residents, but plenty of natural beauty to make up for it.

Because Hood is a sparsely populated, census-designated place, there's not much in the way of traditional amenities for dog owners. In other words, you won't find any dog parks or dog-friendly eateries here. Luckily, Hood is located just a short drive from some of California's biggest cities, where dog-friendly fun abounds!

If you get tired of the peace and quiet of Hood, you can always drive fifteen miles to the state capital. Sacramento is a hub of culture, food, events, art and shopping. No matter what you and Spot like to do, Sacramento will not disappoint! Just make sure to bring water and waste baggies for your adventures outside of town.

Hood might be small, but it does have its own green space: Hood Community Park. This park is just as small as the town it's located in, but it's still a nice place for you and your pooch to have some fun. You'll often see locals walking their dogs, so you and Fido are sure to sniff out some new friends while you're here! Just be careful, because the park is next to a road and is not fenced in. Your pooch should stay leashed at all times. Don't forget to bring some water and waste bags so you can do your part to keep the park clean.

In addition to gorgeous scenery, this park has many viewpoints where you can scope out some wildlife, so don't forget your camera! The park also allows visitors to rent paddle boats, canoes, and kayaks, so you and your pooch can spend some time on the water. You may want to call the rental service in advance to see if they have life vests for dogs. Just don't forget the waste bags and leash!

Although the drive to Suisun City Center will take you approximately an hour, the trip is definitely worth it. This part of the city has not one, but two large parks. First, check out Grizzly Island Wildlife Area, a giant forest preserve with an abundance of wildlife, nature, and beauty. When you are done there, head to San Francisco Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve. Unlike Grizzly Island Wildlife Area ,this reserve is a large stretch of flat land with tall, lush, green grass. You'll need to keep Spot on a leash at all times in both parks.

Who doesn't love a good hike up a mountain? Even the most dedicated couch pup-tatoes love spending time in nature. If you think you and Lassie are up for the challenge, consider spending a day or weekend outdoors at Mt. Diablo State Park, a large nature preserve surrounding the stunning Mt. Diablo. This mountain is nearly 4,000 ft high, so it could take you a while to reach the top! You can also check out the easier trails in the park, as they have beautiful views too. Trust us, the two-hour drive is well worth it!
