    “My best friends have 4 paws”

    Hi, I'm Lyric. I'm a long-time Bay Area resident, and dog lover. Dogs have always been a part of my life, and 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.

    There is not much better than seeing a happy pup face and a wagging tail. I’m an avid hiker, lover of the outdoors and am athletic to keep up with any pup. I’m also patient and take my time with senior pups and those with special needs. I look forward to meeting your canine companion and the many adventures we will have together. Large, small, I walk them all! Certifications: Pet CPR and Pet First Aid

    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 and I'm used to walking, running and playing with all sorts of dogs. Whether you need a quick drop in feeding, someone to walk your dog, or someone to run with your super energetic dog, I got you covered. I can handle puppies no problem but I'm also 6'2 and can handle the big dogs that pull and have more energy then they know what to do with. .

    Hi, My name is Sarah! The last 12 years or so, I’ve helped care for my parents’ Australian Shepard, taking him on walks, visiting him, and housesitting. I also have experience walking friends’ dogs, and housesitting for them, when needed. It’s something I enjoy doing, and I take seriously that you are trusting me with your pet.

    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!
