Allo! I want to work with you and your Dog(s)! If you have specific training needs please let me know, otherwise I try to help with sitting at cross walks (safety first!) and learning loose leash heel (preventing pulling) for basic first time walks with me. I am an on-call/ reoccurring schedule dog walker (and sitter!) for all LA areas. I am often in Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, WeHo, Hollywood and Mid City among other locations. Because this is California, please keep in mind the temperature when scheduling your walks (air temperature of 77* means the ground in sun can be 125*, eggs fry at 131) I do my best to stick to shady areas but I do not want to force any dog into heat stroke, and if they are panting a lot I like to get them fresh water on return home. Don’t just take my word on my knowledge and experience with dogs, please see my 375+ 5 star reviews and comments owners have made. In addition to over a year of Wag! Walks, I have worked at High Ridge Veterinary Hospital Grooming and Boarding, SOS Pets (Save-Our-Seward) Animal Shelter, various volunteering efforts, and grew up with over 30 dogs to train, (I had my own sledding team before I was seven years old!) Animals are my life, and currently I can not have any of my own so let me spread love to yours! ^.^

Hi, my name is Kiba! I've owned & been around dogs all of my life. I have 3 dogs currently & I love them with all my heart. I've worked at PetsMart, dog-sat, & boarded a few dogs at my house as well for friends. My senior project in high school was on service dogs and how they helped & saved lives! A while back, a few others and I donated dog food and other things to a local dog pound & it even made the paper! I love helping out pups because they help me out in a lot of ways. I am always prepared when walking dogs with extra water, a treat, baggies, etc, & just making sure the dog is the most comfortable with pure enjoyment for the them!

“Top Dog Express”

Hi, I'm Daniel. I grew up in California housesitting for my uncles 3 Pitbull Mastiffs since I was 13. It was a daunting task at first - but over the years it made me become a dog whisperer of sorts. I am an animal lover in general, but K-9's are my speciality. I enjoy nature and jogging. I want to give your loyal companion the best workout possible. I will be thrilled if you let me be a part of your happy K-9 family too!

Hello! My name is Daniel Hernandez but you can call me Dani. I am a 5-star dog walker with veterinary technician experience, and the education to back that up! This is one of the reasons why Wag! has enticed me to work with them. So far I have enjoyed my journey with Wag!, due to the friendly people and pets I get to meet! I also do other side tasks such as helping others with gardening, moving etc. so I am very busy but come back to Wag! to relieve stress and to get to meet new and old pets and owners! I have a great record of taking care of the dogs I walk on my walks! I love dogs, especially big dogs! I am 6'3 - 6'4 and walking big dogs are not a problem for me and I walks two huge breed dogs at the same time, but I do not discriminate between sizes as I also melt over smaller breeds as well!

Dog Walking in Running Springs

Running Springs is a lovely area that’s right in the middle of the San Bernardino National Forest. Featuring breathtaking views all around and gorgeous scenery, this is the place to be for walks unlike anywhere else. The nearest animal hospital, Rim Forest Animal Hospital, is located in the nearby city of Twin Peaks a short fifteen minutes away.

Right off Keller Peak Road is the Exploration Trail, a nearly nine mile hiking trail that’s friendly to all dogs on a leash no longer than six feet. The hike is moderate and offers some impressive views, as well as a lake. The bugs can get intense, especially in the warmer months, so definitely bring some bug spray. If you plan to hike the entire way, bring some snacks and water enough for both you and your pup.

Branching off Fredalba Road is Fredalba Trail, a lovely scenic route that sports mountains of wildflowers during the warmer months and views unlike any other. Leashed pups are welcome, making this an ideal route to add to your daily routine. There is only one trailhead, so you will have to hike back to the entrance to get off the trail.  You and your pup will certainly enjoy all there is to see in Running Springs!
