    “Dependable !!!”

    I am an avid walker and a lover of animals. Now that there is a way to easily combine my two loves, I am excited to be associated with Wag. I have owned both dogs and cats, all my life. My neighbors call me, when they need their dogs to go on a walk. I have excellent references, and l am a trustworthy person. I feel that all animals are wonderful and amazing. I am available to walk Monday thru Friday, 9am to 5pm. Unfortunately, I am not available Holidays or Weekends. Thank you !

    “Why work with people when you can work with dogs”

    Hi there my names is Cody. I’m 30 yrs old and live in South Orange County with my two rescue pit bulls. Ive been working with dogs for over 10 years now and have gained a lot of experience and training. For 6 years I worked as a floor supervisor at a doggie daycare here in south oc and through them I was properly trained to give baths, trim nails, administer insulin shots and oral meds. I have a lot of experience with positive reinforcement clicker training. I hope to met your pup someday!

    “Dog hair don’t care!”

    Hi! My name is Jennifer but please call me Jenny! I grew up with dogs mostly smaller dogs like Poodles and Shih Tzu’s. As an adult I’ve owned 2 Rhodesian Ridgebacks who both lived to be 12 1/2 years old. My current dog is a mixed breed dog who I rescued 6 years ago. I also just adopted a one year old English Pointer. Walking, exercising, and socializing my pets has always been a huge priority for me. I look forward to taking your dog out so he or she can get the proper exercise they need.

    Hey everyone! My name is Brittany and I live in Irvine. I grew up owning dogs, from large breeds to the little guys! I also attended veterinary technician school and have worked in an animal hospital since 2012. Dogs are my one true passion in life and I wouldn’t want it any other way. I am very educated when it comes to the health of a dog and also body language and personality traits plus I absolutely love being outdoors! I can’t wait to meet your fuzzy friends!

    “Grateful to serve the fine canines of my community”

    I promise that while your dog is in my care, I will treat him or her as the special individual he or she is— I love getting to know each dog’s unique personality and quirks! My goal is to have a safe and rewarding adventure on every one of my outings with your pup or pack. I grew up with playful Labs, and enjoyed many precious years with an amazing Jindo and loving Australian heeler, all who lived into their golden years; I have experience in positive-reinforcement training and senior dog care.

    Jump in the car, roll the windows down, and head 23 miles from Lake Forest to San Clemente. This is where you will find San Onofre State Beach. This is a dog-friendly beach where your fur baby can catch some waves and sun. The two separate walking trails offer lots of different trees to bark at. When you are all done, the convenient washing station makes sure you get all the sand off your pal’s paws before you hop in the car for the ride home. Just don’t forget your leash for the trails. The beach has an off-leash area but beware of the undertow.

    Grab your shoes and a leash, because Rails to Trails has come to California. Just a quick 15-minute trip from Lake Forest to Irvine puts you at Shady Canyon Trail Loop where the team behind Rail to Trails has turned the historic path into a serene scene. These trails offer winding paths that have plenty of furrific adventures just around the bend. You’ll enjoy the breathtaking views while your canine companion has a nice sniff. This picture-perfect scenery makes it a great get away.  Don’t forget to bring the leash, a sense of adventure, and your camera for all those barktastic moments.

    A 20-minute trip from Lake Forest to Laguna Beach will bring you to Laguna Beach Dog Park. This is a furtastic dog park that has two separate fenced-in spaces for dogs of different sizes. There is plenty of room to run, play, and even play fetch in each area. Don’t forget to bring a ball, Frisbee, or your pawesome pal’s favorite toy. Bring a leash and take a quick stroll down the trail with Fido and you will come to a quiet beach spot. Contemplate the beauty of nature, or get down and dirty in the sand. Just be aware that the park is closed on Wednesdays to allow for maintenance.

    Twenty-one miles west of Lake Forest California lies Huntington Beach. Here, you will find Best Friend Dog Park.  The memorials of never forgotten furry friends coupled with the shady benches, which make a relaxing, if a little somber, stay. The two large fenced-in areas are just the pawfect size to bury bones, chase balls, and even fly frisbees. When you get thirsty, just get a drink at the self-filling water fountains. The only downside is the muddy paw prints that are sure to be on your car seats, so bring a wet wipe or two if you’re worried. This is a privately-owned dog park that is very well-maintained.

    If you want something that will challenge your sense of adventure while allowing your pup to work out some of that endless energy, you need to take a 19-mile trip from Lake Forest to Aliso Viejo. Here you will find Aliso Creek Riding and Hiking Trail. The trial is 18 miles long, which makes it the perfect place to go from a day trip through the historic Mission Viejo. Just don’t forget to bring a lot of water if you plan to tackle the whole thing! As you walk, you can learn about the history of the area from the many kiosks along the way. With many open spaces and trail options, you can always find new things to explore.
