    “Love Pups: Accommodate All Types and Personalities”

    I love dogs and have had the pleasure and honor of having several in my life. I would love to share my love and attention with your pupper! I also enjoy running, so I can tailor the level of activity that meets the needs of your best friend. Let me be the one to take care of your pup when you can't!

    My name is Linda and I've been working as a dog walker for about 10 years in San Francisco and Los Angeles. From volunteering at my local animal shelter in high school to working at a grooming salon and fostering dogs, I have a lot of experience working with dogs. I have a senior rescue pup and am skilled in administering subcutaneous fluids as well as giving various types of medications. I love dogs and they love me!

    My name is Lisa and I'm a dog owner and lover! I have volunteered for a local dog rescue for the last 6 years including fostering over 150 dogs. I have 3 of my own fur babies. Roxy is a 7 year old German Shepherd I've had since she was a pup. I adopted Peetie my AMSTAFF bully boy as well as my blind Shih tzu Wink. I used to foster up to 6 dogs at a time. Now that I have 3 dogs, I usually foster 1-2 dogs at a time. I have a lot of experience with all sorts of breeds, ages and temperaments. I'm great with special needs dogs. I have experience training and handling dogs from all sorts of backgrounds and challenges. I've rehabilitated many dogs that have not been treated well and taught them to trust and enjoy life again! I joined Wag to do something I love the most; spending time with dogs! Your dog and I will have a great time on our walk.

    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!

    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!

    I've been walking furry friends for 2 years now and completely understand how hard it can be to make sure they get plenty of exercise and company. I'm happy to help whenever I can so you don't have to worry and your pup is happy. I'm more then happy to meet you and your pup to ensure everyone is comfortable having me with them and believe I'd be a great fit for them.

    HI, I'm Jesse. I've been around dogs my whole life of 40+ years. I've been an owner, foster, sitter, and walker. I'm able to read a dog's body language very well. I realize that each dog has his/her own personality, and I treat them, with love and respect, as the individuals that they are.

    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.
