“Worry not, I’m here to take your dog out on a walk”

Hi! To begin, my name is Ezequiel! I was born and raised in San Francisco. Since I was a kid, I’ve owned multiple pets. My first dog was a Chihuahua named Baby. Next, was a Border Collie mix named Sierra. After they passed, we rescued a Pitador mix named Nala, who’s currently seven years old. So it goes without saying, I’m a natural when it comes to dog walking. With an customer approval rating of 4.97, I promise your pup will be in good hands. I look forward to meeting your pooch!

“The best dog walker in town!”

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 Orinda

Just a short 20-minute drive east of San Francisco, Orinda, California is a great spot for your next dog-friendly adventure. Not only is Orinda is the gateway to many incredible natural areas, it was also ranked the second friendliest city in the country by Forbes Magazine. This means you and your pup are sure to be welcomed everywhere you go! The city of Orinda also has two veterinarians should anything go awry during your visit. There are more than 20 additional veterinarians in the surrounding metropolitan area as well.  

Begin your day at the Orinda Oaks Park, a 12-acre wooded area purrfect for you and your furry friend to begin exploring the area. There's also a large grassy area in the park where you can let your pup roam free if you so choose. Just keep in mind the area isn't fenced in, so don't let your furry friend off leash if they have a tendency to wander off. There is also a nice shaded trail for you and your pup to enjoy. 

Located less than 10 minutes outside downtown Orinda, you'll find the Seaview Trailhead. The Seaview Trail Loop is one of the most popular hikes in the Easy Bay area. It is also relatively short, meaning you and your pup can enjoy the scenic views and continue on your way. During the first half of the hike, you'll pass through open grassy meadows and forests. However, the second half of the hike will bring you to an incredible peak with stunning views of the San Francisco Bay and San Pablo Reservoir. If you choose to keep going from here, you'll descend into more wooded areas before coming back to the trailhead.

Orinda, California surely cannot be missed!
