“My best friends have 4 paws”

Hi, I'm Lyric. I'm a life-long Bay Area resident, and dog lover. I live in San Jose with my dog (and best friend) Boomer. I have many years of dog care under my belt, from puppy to senior, including special needs dogs. I have experience with many breeds, and know how to handle high-energy dogs. I love meeting new dogs and getting to know their charming (and often hilarious) personalities. Our dogs aren't pets, they are family, and you can count on me to treat them that way.

Hi My name is Patrick, I grew up in the Bay Area and I have been a dog lover my whole life. Growing up I had many dogs, Big and Small. To me playing with dogs never gets old. Running around the yard with them, belly rubs, tug of wars I love to do it all. I've always had a connection with dogs and my mom likes to call me the Dog Whisperer since dogs tend to calm down and behave more often in my presence. I like to get outside and enjoy the daytime and I'd love to bring your pup companion with me while your away.

“Dogs make everything better”

I'm a true dog lover. I can see the unique personality in each one of the dogs that I have the privilege to meet. I prefer small to medium dogs (I don't have very strong upper body strength). I enjoy walks of about up to 4 miles if your pup allows it. I don't have pets and I have a fenced backyard. I bring my own leash and pop bags. After a walk I wipe their paws and face and give them a dental treat. Can't wait to walk your beautiful 4 legged soul.

Downtown North in Menlo Park has Willow Oaks Dog Park, and it’s a great destination for your dog! One word of warning for small dog owners: the park is one area for all, meaning large dogs and small dogs share space. If your pup gets overwhelmed by giants (or if you have a big dog who loves to chase the littles) this may not be your perfect park. Most dogs, however, love the chance to be social. The park itself also has tennis courts and a small playground outside of the dog area. It’s truly a destination for the whole family!
