    Hello! My name is Schea and I have been a dog owner for more than 8 years. I have owned large and small dogs and I am very excited to start walking your dog! I currently live in an apartment that doesn't allow animals, so this job is a way for me to spend time with dogs all day, get some exercise AND make money. It's a dream come true!

    “The Dog Whisperer ;-)”

    Pets are amazing creatures and make the best companions. In my life I’ve had dogs, cats, birds and even a monkey! I recently lost my shelter kitten, after 11 years, due an abscess in his gums. I miss him dearly. My daughter has two high energy pups that I help out with, so I am experienced with different levels of energy and temperaments. I look forward to meeting your furry loved on! Please contact me for questions, to ensure you feel safe about your pet being in my care.

    Hi, I'm Taylor! I've lived in the Bay Area my whole life and in San Jose for the last couple years. I have cared for dogs since I was 9 years old, when I got my first dog! I have volunteered at animal shelters and have been dog sitting for 5 years. I have experience with dogs of all sizes, ages, and needs. I am an active person who loves playing sports and I would love to walk and get to know your dog. I promise to make your and your dog's Wag! experience the best that it can be.

    “I love fun walks, casual runs, and staying waggy!!”

    My name is Amber and I’m a huge dog lover. I graduated from UCLA and recently moved back to NorCal! I grew up in Napa Valley with the sweetest, beautiful black lab pup named Roxy. I love meeting dogs of all sizes and personalities! I have 3.5 years of experience as a pet care professional (dog walking, boarding and sitting). I live an active lifestyle, often commuting on foot and running and I would love to share these activities with your best friend if they like to run too!

    “@the.fairy.dog.mother”

    I am a local, experienced dog walker with three years of pet sitting, training and dog walking. I have cared for 27 different species of animals and enjoy getting to know each one individually. I absolutely love dog walking and getting outdoors and like to take frequent breaks from my work for doggie walks, pets, and sitting. I also volunteer with PAWS one day a week and am Animal CPR certified, trainer certified, and can handle medications, elderly and young pets.

    I am a retired female in my early 60’s who is a regular daily walker. As a Wag! Walker I have done over 200 dog walks. I am RELIABLE & RESPONSIBLE. Numerous owners have designated me as their preferred walker. I always go the extra mile for the dogs in my care, ie: making sure each dog has fresh water at the end of our walk. And, if it has been rainy & wet, I wipe the dog’s paws before bringing him/her back into your home. I would love to walk your Pup!

    My name is Emily and I love animals! I cannot remember a time growing up that I was not surrounded by my furry friends. I have experience walking and dog sitting small and large dogs. I also have a regional parks pass, if you would prefer a more scenic route for your pup. I can't wait to meet you!

    Hi! My names Miranda and I would be honored to take care of your precious pups! For as long as I can remember animals have been the center focus of my life. I grew up riding horses, participating in 4H and even had the rewarding experience of raising two Labrador’s for guide dogs for the blind! I am a long time employee at a popular doggie daycare in the area and know what it takes to keep all dogs- big and small- the happiest they can be! I also currently work with horses and am going to school for Equine Science and Zoology. This isn’t just a job to me, this is what I love! I get great satisfaction by knowing I am giving animals the best love and care possible and I know how much that means to their owners! I hope to meet you and your beloved for legged friends very soon!

    River Road

    Does your dog love joining you for a car ride to run errands during the day? If you live off River Road, you're furtunate enough to live close to some pet-friendly establishments with open door policies for dogs! First, coffee! You can head over to Grand Coffee Bazaar --a pet-friendly coffee spot that's both a cafe and bookstore. After you fuel up on some gourmet coffee, you can run your errands before lunch. Once you two get hungry, head to 3 Alarm Grill for a great breakfast or lunch. Breakfast entrees like 3 Alarm Chorizo Breakfast and Eggs Benedict keep locals coming back! If Fido's on their best behavior, give them some table scraps for their good manners!

    Do your dogs like to spend their whole day at the beach to work up an "ap-pet-tite?" If you visit the downtown area of Monte Rio, you can head down to the Monte Rio Beach, which is locally known as Big Rocky Beach. Don't "furry!" The beach itself has been cleared of the rocks that dot the rest of the shoreline along the Russian River. This beach is a great place for a swim! Or, you can launch a boat or kayak off with Fido as your river companion. After a day at the beach, you can head down to the pet-friendly Village Inn & Restaurant for a nice upscale dinner. This place is not to be confused with the chain Village Inn. This restaurant is "dif-fur-rent!" The restaurant has over dozens of local wines to choose to pair with entrees like Grilled Swordfish or Bistro Soup. Don't forget to throw Fido a bone!

    Do your pupperonis crave Italian food from the first time you gave them a piece of pasta as a treat? If you drive about 20 minutes down CA-116, you'll land in Forestville where you can grab some authentic Italian food with a seafood flair. Your dog is always welcome at Canneti Roadhouse Italiana. You can order furrific dishes like "Potato Gnocchi with smoked Halibut and Salmon Carbonara" or "Light Stew of Monterey Calamari, Prawns, Mussels, Clams and Crayfish with toasted house Ciabatta." You know it's authentic when the title of the dish announces the ingredients! After a filling meal with Fido, you'll probably still be in the mood for dessert! There's a litter of pet-friendly restaurants in Forestville, so no matter what you're hankering for, you and Fido have options!

    Do your dogs like live music to wag their tails to as they join you for dinner? If you live in southern Sonoma County, you can visit the Blue Heron Restaurant in the Duncan Mills community. This lively restaurant sits right on the river and has an outside deck where dogs can hang out. This is also conveniently where the live music is hosted! You can catch live acts playing everything from reggae to country music! As you listen to music, you can order entrees like the Blue Heron Burger, Salmon N' Chips, or Fettuccine Alfredo. Also, a great spot in Duncan Hills is Rien's Beach. This pet-friendly, cleared area of the beach makes a great place for a quick splash in the river! Get ready to doggie paddle!

    Does your dog love to swim and chase tennis balls into the shallow waters of a river? If you live in the northern pocket of Monte Rio in Guernewood Park, you can visit the 2-acre Patterson Point Preserve. This recreation area is on a bend of the Russian River and is a local spot for fishing, swimming, and exploring the wilderness around the bed. After a day in the California sunshine, you can head over the pet-friendly Garden Grill for some delicious "bark-b-q!" Plates like the BBQ Tri-Tip Sandwich, Louisiana Hot Links, or Grilled Portabella Mushroom Grinder keep Monte Rio locals coming back! Fido's always invited to the barbecue!
