    Hi, I'm Becky! I am new to San Diego and one of my favorite things to do is to explore this awesome city with a dog by my side. I've had dogs and cats my whole life, and don't think I could have it any other way. My current best friend/roommate is George, a 7 year old pit bull/lab mix. I understand that all dogs need discipline and respect, with lots of love and exercise. I'll make sure to always keep all dogs super safe and happy.

    I just moved to San Diego from Connecticut, and was looking for for a good way to meet new dogs and explore the area. I’ve had 8 dogs throughout my life, from Rottweiler to Golden Retriever to Shih Tzu, and I used to volunteer at an animal shelter in Connecticut. I’ve been walking dogs for as long as I have been walking myself, and they are by far my favorite creatures!

    Jared is a life saver and came to the rescue and walked our goldendoodle when we were in a pinch and out of town and had no one else to walk her when plans fell apart last minute. He is very communicative and gives our girl lots of love and attention! Definitely recommend him and have complete trust in him with my fur baby!
