Hi! My name is Rebecca and I am an animal lover by nature. I grew up surrounded by animals and raised a Border-Collie mix pup to live a long, healthy and happy 16 years! I have walked dogs, house-sat, and cared for all kinds of pets for over 16 years. Obedience classes & agility training courses were part of the growing up process with my own dog, Sara. Mostly we had a fun, goofy time just playing. She went everywhere with me! Since she passed away, I take any chance I can to be around my canine pals. I've always had an affinity for dogs large & small, with boundless energy or a calm disposition. I know how important it is to have your dog(s) well-cared for while you are busy or traveling so I am here to help! I am always up for a leisurely stroll in the neighborhood, brisk walk or challenging hike. Whatever your needs are I can meet them. I feel very fortunate to be able to walk a variety of dogs. It would be my great pleasure to meet your dog and make a new friend!

I became an official dog owner at a young age when I was given a husky for my 13th birthday. Ever since, I have had many experiences caring for all kinds of dogs. The history of breeds I have cared for range from small dogs such as terriers and chihuahuas to large dogs including pit bulls and bulldogs. My volunteer experience includes working at the Linda Blair WorldHeart Foundation (LBWF). During my time at this animal shelter, I cleaned, walked, and fed many dogs who were rescued.

Dog Walking in Mill Valley

Mill Valley, California, is located in the dazzling Marin County. Life in Mill Valley is truly a blessing for both humans and their pets. The town itself is very nice and the surroundings even more so. There is a large variety in landscapes, from a coastal area with beaches, wet marshlands and oak-dotted hills. The latter is one of the many excellent opportunities to walk the dogs.

The best way to take advantage of the alluring scenery of Mill Valley and the surrounding towns, is to follow one of the many recreational trails. The Mill Valley-Sausalito Path is one of these routes and connects Mill Valley with Sausalito. The convenient multi-functional path is a hit with hikers, cyclists, skaters as well as dog owners and passes through the wetlands and the tidal mudflats.

The Old Railroad Grade is a more challenging route as the crooked trail throws a lot of curves before one reaches its peak at Mount Tamalpais. While this trip should not be undertaken unless both dog and owner are in good health, the rewards are simply amazing.

Mill Valley also has its own off-leash dog park for those looking for an hour play time for the dogs and some much needed relax time for themselves. The soil of Mill Valley dog park is grassy and there is an abundance of trees for a natural experience. There is even a river for dogs to swim in.
