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!

“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.

“Dogs make everything better”

I'm a true dog lover. I can see the unique personality in each one of the dogs that I have the privilege to meet. I prefer small to medium dogs (I don't have very strong upper body strength). I enjoy walks of about up to 4 miles if your pup allows it. I don't have pets and I have a fenced backyard. I bring my own leash and pop bags. After a walk I wipe their paws and face and give them a dental treat. Can't wait to walk your beautiful 4 legged soul.
