    “My best friends have 4 paws”

    Hi, I'm Lyric. I'm a long-time Bay Area resident, and dog lover. Dogs have always been a part of my life, and 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.

    “Wag! Certified, large, small I walk them all.”

    There is not much better than seeing a happy pup face and a wagging tail. I’m an avid hiker, lover of the outdoors and am athletic to keep up with any pup. I’m also patient and take my time with senior pups and those with special needs. I look forward to meeting your canine companion and the many adventures we will have together. Large, small, I walk them all! Certifications: Pet CPR and Pet First Aid

    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 and I'm used to walking, running and playing with all sorts of dogs. Whether you need a quick drop in feeding, someone to walk your dog, or someone to run with your super energetic dog, I got you covered. I can handle puppies no problem but I'm also 6'2 and can handle the big dogs that pull and have more energy then they know what to do with. .

    Hi, My name is Sarah! The last 12 years or so, I’ve helped care for my parents’ Australian Shepard, taking him on walks, visiting him, and housesitting. I also have experience walking friends’ dogs, and housesitting for them, when needed. It’s something I enjoy doing, and I take seriously that you are trusting me with your pet.

    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.

    Greetings, my name is Scott! I'm a military veteran who grew up in Sacramento, but have lived in the San Francisco area the last 20+ years. While growing up, my family always owned dogs and, over the years, built up a great understanding of their general behaviors & needs. I started walking & caring for our dogs, and others, when I was around 8 years old, and have loved doing so at every opportunity since! I'm a very athletic person who goes to the gym & trail running at least 4 days per week so, I'd love the opportunity to keep your dog healthy & fit as well! Your dogs' happiness and safety will be my top priorities!

    Stanford Hills

    If you’re looking for a quick, dog-friendly bite near Stanford University, you should head to Eric’s Gourmet in Stanford Hills. It’s a quick, deli location that prizes fresh ingredients and fast service. You can eat at one of the outdoor tables and keep your dog close at hand to enjoy the meal with you. After you eat, head out to Stanford Hills Park for a walk under the trees. The park is a great place to go if you want to stretch during a lunch break and give your dog a chance to enjoy the beautiful weather that’s common in the area.

    Sharon Heights

    The Menlo Park neighborhood of Sharon Heights is home to Sharon Park. This adult park is an oasis in the city, with a water feature in the center and a great set of walking paths that make the most of the small space. It’s perfect for working up an appetite for another key attraction of the neighborhood: Madera. This restaurant has a dog-friendly patio and upscale food offerings perfect for the discerning palette. Enjoy a duck salad or something from the wood-burning grill. Your dog can enjoy his fine selections of water bowls, and an evening in the company of his favorite human.

    Downtown Menlo Park is packed with things to sniff, places to romp, and food to enjoy. Start early in the morning with an off leash romp at Nealon Park. From 8am to 10am, pups are welcome to play off leash in the baseball field, and it’s quite the social hour! After that, enjoy a meal at Left Bank, known for their house made sausages and pate. If you want something else, Stacks is an All-American breakfast and lunch restaurant that’s sure to please your pup. Finish with an on leash walk at Burgess Park for the perfect exercise-food-exercise day sandwich.

    Bayfront Park in the Bayfront neighborhood is the place to take your high energy dog. Your pup has to stay on leash, but there’s enough to see and do at this park that that won’t even matter! Bayfront Park is a rambling, large park full of trails. You can walk down by the water for spectacular views of San Francisco Bay. If your dog wants something tougher (and you can keep up), there are also a selection of challenging trails for someone looking to get their workout in today. No matter what trails you’re enjoying, bring your own water and water bowl for your pup, as it’s pretty far from the nearest fountain out there!

    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!
