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.

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!

Hello, I'm Stephen! I've been an avid dog lover since the moment I was born. Since then I've been sitting, boarding, and walking all the dogs that my friends have. I have experience from Australian Shepherds to little Rat Terriers, and adore all dogs of all shapes and sizes. It's been exciting getting to know all the different personalities these little guys can bring. I believe in having fun with puppers, but also demonstrating discipline with much love. It'd be a terrific pleasure to walk your dog and get to know another great thing that's a part of this world, thanks!

Hi, I'm Cathy and I've been an SF resident for the past 11 years. I grew up with a cocker spaniel named Mickey and have had a deep love for dogs ever since. My apartment building prohibits pets so I visit the nearby dog park or babysit my brother's adorable dachshunds whenever I visit So Cal to get my much needed doggy therapy. With Wag!, it's a wonderful opportunity for me to not only meet new dogs and enjoy their companionship a few times a week but also help dog owners keep their pets healthy, fit and happy. I am comfortable with dogs of all sizes and personalities and understand how important outdoor exposure and walks are for their well-being. I will treat your dog with love & care, and will do my best to ensure you have a positive experience with Wag!

Dog Walking in Pleasanton

With a large pet population and an abundance of local businesses and attractions, Pleasanton, California is an exceptionally pet-friendly city. Whether you want a night on the town or a walk in the park, Pleasanton can accommodate both humans and four-legged friends.

For dining options, many Pleasanton restaurants offer outdoor seating for leashed dogs. Lazy Dog Restaurant and Bar is a local favorite – try the Cajun fries or Hawaiian sticky ribs. Or for fresh tapas, take a walk down to Sabio on Main. Cellar Door Wine Bar, Lokanta, and Nonni’s Bistro are some other choices if you’re in the mood to bring Fido during lunch or dinner.

As for dog parks in the area, try the Muirwood Community Dog Park, which offers doggie bags and a water station. The shady trees lining the park can keep your dog cool from the hot California sun. If you’re looking for something with more space, why not try the Pleasanton Ridge Regional Park? This park offers on-leash hiking trails and off-leash undeveloped areas for adventurous pooches.

If you’re visiting the area from out of town, there are many options for lodging, such as the Sheraton Pleasanton Hotel, which charges no additional pet fee. Motel 6 also does not charge an additional fee. Other choices include the Doubletree, TriValley Inn & Suites, Extended Stay America, and Hyatt House. There’s no shortage of things to do along with your furry friend in the Pleasanton area!

Thanks to a $250,000 grant from the U.S. Bureau of Outdoor Recreation, Shadow Cliffs Regional Park is one of the nicest spots in the area. It wasn’t always so beautiful, though. Shadow Cliffs was once a gravel quarry. Now, it’s a prime spot for all things water. Swimming and boating are allowed in the main 80-acre lake that sits on the 266-acre property, only about a mile from downtown Pleasanton. Boats with electric motors under 17 feet are permitted to launch. Jet skis are not allowed, but no worries! Dogs can’t ride jet skis anyway. But, they do enjoy fishing and swimming. This park is stocked with catfish and trout weekly, and bluegill and bass are also commonly caught. There’s no way to know for sure which fish is a dog’s favorite, but our money’s on catfish. If your pups should take to the sport, look out for fishing derbies. We’re sure they’d love it! Dogs are allowed off-leash 100 ft from trails and at the dog beach area of the lake.

Pleasanton Ridge Regional Park is a 5,271-acre park in Sunol with views of Livermore Valley. Leashed dogs are welcome to accompany their humans for a day of trekking. Start at Foothill Road and choose a trail, while keeping an eye out for other hikers, bikers, and horseback riders. Some trails are exposed to bright sunlight, which is great for when it’s cold in the winter. If you’re looking for shade in the heat of summer, perhaps follow Sinbad Creek Trail. It’s cool and covered by trees. While dogs are supposed to wear leashes on the trail, they may be off leash if they are obedient to their humans in remote areas. When you reach the ridge top at over 1,600 feet, stop for a selfie. You won’t want to forget this view! Be sure to clean up any waste left behind by your dog and pack it out to dispose at a trash can.

In 1974, the Pleasanton Police Department formed its first K9 unit, with Cubby being the first working dog to join the team. Cubby’s Dog Park was named after this honorary canine, a place where dogs can roam free, sans leash. The play area is separated into an area for small dogs and one for large dogs, with a total of 1.5 acres in all. Need water? Hit the drinking fountains. Need shade? Park it under a shade structure. Ready to hit the trails? The Marilyn Murphy Cane Walking Trail begins near the entrance to the park. If that doesn’t tire you guys out, go back to the dog park for some agility training. If you’ve still got energy, go home and try to teach your pup to turn a doorknob.

The Dougherty Hills Dog Park in Dublin, California is a unique creative space. Livened up by sculptural installations by artist Michele Alcantara, this dog park unites doggie play time and art into one neat experience. The sculptures take their shapes from cats, dogs, and icons from the world of pets: bones, fire hydrants, and toys. While humans will enjoy admiring the artwork, dogs will certainly appreciate agility equipment, drinking fountains, and being separated by size in large dog and small dog areas. No one wants to play with someone five times their size, right? Humans are welcome to sit on park benches as long as they agree to pick up pet waste while enjoying the park.

On the northeast side of Pleasanton in Livermore, you’ll find a cool spot called Eight Bridges Brewing Co. It’s special because dogs are allowed both inside and out of the brewery. Taste housemade beers while you and your fur baby enjoy a snack (you’ll have to bring your own as they don’t serve food). If you’re looking to make a Saturday of it, head up Doolan Rd in the morning to hike at Doolan Canyon Preserve. When you’re tired and sweaty, head back down to Eight Bridges for a beer and big bowl of water. This brewery is very close to the Livermore Airport, making it a great place to stop after picking up your parents at the airport. Your dog won’t have to stay home and miss greeting their grandparents! Look out for games, live music, and events.
