Hi! My name is Rebecca and I am an animal lover by nature. I grew up surrounded by animals and raised a Border-Collie mix pup to live a long, healthy and happy 16 years! I have walked dogs, house-sat, and cared for all kinds of pets for over 16 years. Obedience classes & agility training courses were part of the growing up process with my own dog, Sara. Mostly we had a fun, goofy time just playing. She went everywhere with me! Since she passed away, I take any chance I can to be around my canine pals. I've always had an affinity for dogs large & small, with boundless energy or a calm disposition. I know how important it is to have your dog(s) well-cared for while you are busy or traveling so I am here to help! I am always up for a leisurely stroll in the neighborhood, brisk walk or challenging hike. Whatever your needs are I can meet them. I feel very fortunate to be able to walk a variety of dogs. It would be my great pleasure to meet your dog and make a new friend!

“Worry not, I’m here to take your dog out on a walk”

Hi! To begin, my name is Ezequiel! I was born and raised in San Francisco. Since I was a kid, I’ve owned multiple pets. My first dog was a Chihuahua named Baby. Next, was a Border Collie mix named Sierra. After they passed, we rescued a Pitador mix named Nala, who’s currently seven years old. So it goes without saying, I’m a natural when it comes to dog walking. With an customer approval rating of 4.97, I promise your pup will be in good hands. I look forward to meeting your pooch!

Dog Walking in Richmond

Richmond in Contra Costa County was named for the more famous Richmond in Virginia. It’s a bustling city of more than a hundred thousand residents, and many, many dogs! There are three full service veterinary hospitals in Richmond, and the area caters to canines. To get a view of the natural beauty here, try the Wildcat Creek Trail, a 3 mile moderate looped trail that is perfect for looking down over the city.

If you want to hit the sand with your pup, the Point Pinole Regional Shoreline is a must see. The area is welcoming to leashed dogs, and offers a gorgeous view of the water. You can also go to Point Molate for a dog-friendly view of dunes and waves. Your leashed pup will love exploring the beach, and may make a friend as the area is popular with dog owners! If you need a boost of caffeine after all that exercise, Catahoula Coffee Company & Roastery is a dog-friendly place to sit and enjoy great coffee, and frequently, local bands.

For a great night’s sleep, you and your dog can retire to Extended Stay America Richmond Hilltop Mall. Pets sleep for a small pet fee, and humans sleep happy to know that there’s even more of Richmond to see tomorrow!

Miller/Knox Regional Shoreline in Point Richmond is a great place to visit with your dog. There are incredible views out over the bay, and lots of room to walk your dog! While your pup will have to stay on leash at the shoreline, there’s so much to see and sniff that they won’t even notice. You can walk the paths down to the water, or stay in the central green space for picnics and to rest up after all that walking. Bring your own water and bowl, and also some food for grilling if you want to make full use of the picnic grounds.

El Sobrante Hills is a great place to live, and a good place to visit too, due largely to its proximity to the Sobrante Ridge Regional Preserve. This wilderness area is gorgeous, with trails to suit every activity level. The prevalence of wild animals in the area creates lots of interesting smells for dogs, and the views from Oakland to the Bay and beyond are worth it for humans. Some people also like getting away from the crowd. Sobrante Ridge Regional Preserve is a quiet, wilderness park. Bring your own water and a bowl to share with your canine best friend.

The Barbara and Jay Vincent Park is a small but beautiful end to the San Francisco Bay Trail. The park is a simple spot where you can watch the boats in the marina. The trail runs through the area and beyond, making it a great trek for people and dogs who really want to get a workout. Just down the trail is the Shimada Friendship Park. This park is mostly open, grassy space perfect for walking your dog. Dogs should remain on leash at both parks.

The residential neighborhood of North and East in Richmond has two great parks for dog walking located just blocks apart. Start with Mira Vista Park. This park is on the smaller side, but the dense foliage around the outside and wide grassy field in the middle make it a perfect oasis. It’s great for short walks or lazy picnics. Tiller Park blocks away is busier, with a full playground and several sports fields. Dogs will love the walking paths and seeing all the people. Bring your own water to both parks, just to be sure to have some.
