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!

“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.

Hello my name is Nolan and I've had dogs for most of my life, 7 to be exact. At one point I was living with 4 dogs. 3 of which were smaller and the 4th a medium sized golden doodle. So I'm no stranger to different types of needs, energy levels and balancing the love to many at one time. I not only have years of experience with my own but years of experience of also being entrusted to walk and watch some of my Neighbors' dogs when they go out of town.

Dog Walking in New Almaden

New Almaden, California got its name from the Almaden Quicksilver Mines, but the Almaden mine that it was named after wasn't in California. It wasn't even in America. It was named after the mines in Spain. It is their job to process the mercury so that the ore can be usable. Now, New Almaden is a family community that loves its pets; just stop into any of the three vets and you'll see that for yourself!

Almaden Quicksilver Park is one of the best places you can take your family. Bring a leash and explore the trails around the reservoir. You can even fish in this man-made lake. However, you should practice some important safety measures: don't let your dog off his leash, don't eat anything you catch, and don't let your dog drink the water. This is a natural spot for mercury. It is found in all the water and the fish. The reservoir is beautiful and has a ton of historic sites that highlight the mining history of the area. You will love spending the day here!

For more history, or to see an actual mine, head over to Almaden Lake Park. It is located right outside of New Almaden. There is no fishing allowed here at all, though. You can walk the trail with your dog on his leash. The best part is that, if you go up the hill, you can see the actual mines. You cannot go in them, but there are mine cars on display and you can see the tracks. 

There aren't many more Fido-friendly amenities in this town, so if you're looking for dog parks and restaurants, you'll have to take a short drive to the surrounding areas.

One of the best thing about being in New Almaden is that you have access to a beautiful mountain trail system just 15 miles from you. Fremont Older Open Space Preserve is just that. This is an open trail system that allows you to choose how long you want to hike. The downside to this magnificent nature space is that you will have no access to running water. You will need to bring your own supplies, including poop bags. Please remember that you have to keep your dog on a leash. All of the trails are clearly marked so that you and your dog can explore safely.

Right in the middle of Saratoga, and only about 20 minutes from you, is an interesting restaurant called La Fondue. If you like cheese, chocolate, and decadence, then you need to bring your dog here! They have a four-course tasting menu that will have you full and happy. It isn't all about just cheese, though. They have exotic meats to choose from as well. They even have kangaroo on the menu! Your pup can join you to eat here, but if you want them to get food or water, you will have to bring your own dishes.
