“Energetic & fun! Can’t wait to walk your pups!”

Hi there! My name is Molly. I have worked with dogs for over 20 years now, got my first dog at age 7, and I have 2 Pomeranians & a pitbulI. I have worked in animal shelters for years before, and most recently managed a dog boutique/grooming salon in West Hollywood.

My name is Alex and I've been living in Santa Monica for a little over nine years now. I love that West LA is so good for getting outside for runs, walks, bike rides, and hikes, and being active has become one of my favorite past times. I grew up with dogs but haven't had my own in years, so I'm excited that this app gives me the opportunity to spend time with dogs again while getting my own exercise as well. I hope that I can match up with some athletic dogs that can run with me, as I know certain breeds need a lot more than just a walk around the neighborhood to really burn off their energy. I look forward to meeting you and your dog soon.

“Your dog’s BEST FRIEND”

Hi, I'm Quinton! I have had various breeds of dogs while growing up (German Shepherd, Labrador Retriever, and Bullmastiff just to name a few). I've fostered, groomed and walked many different breeds of dogs as well! I'm an overall fun and active person, so your dog will definitely have a great time with me! I love jogging too, so if you prefer that your canine friend is more active, I can definitely accommodate.

“All clothing I own is covered in dog hair.”

I've always been the one who everyone calls for anything dog related. I've volunteered at shelters, have worked for a pet behaviorist's radio show, grew up with dogs, and currently have two awesome low-rider pit mix rescue pups of my own. I know how much our dogs can affect every aspect of our lives, and I'd like to help alleviate your stress by making sure your buddies are well cared for while you're out. Let me know if your pups would like to go walking with me soon. I can't wait to meet them!

Dog Walking in Northridge

Northridge is a neighborhood of the grand city of Los Angeles. Known mainly for being home to California State University Northridge, the neighborhood was originally named Zelzah. The community then thought it would be a good idea to rename the neighborhood “North Los Angeles” in 1929 to help bring more hype to the booming area. The name was finally changed for a third time after people became confused and Northridge became its permanent name.

This lovely community offers delicious restaurants that you and your pup can enjoy together, like Shredded Tacos. Northridge is home to six veterinary clinics that you can take your pup to for a healthy checkup. Since Northridge is in Los Angeles, you don’t have to worry about finding a pet-friendly hotel to stay at. Hotels like Extended Stay American Los Angeles Northridge welcomes your dog to spend an evening with them.

Northridge is filled with six beautiful parks that your dog can explore. Be sure to take Fido to Zelzah Park which has so much open green space he will want to run around forever. If hiking is more of your style, then there is a great hiking trail ten minutes out of Northridge.
