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!

“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.

Dog Walking in San Jose

Looking for a friendly place to take your dog? Head to Hellyer Dog Park on Hellyer Avenue. Hellyer Dog Park is a huge fenced-in dog park where dogs can run and play off-leash. This dog park is known for its friendly crowd, so you and your pooch may walk away with new friends every time you visit! Drinking water is offered at the park, and free parking is available off-site. Parking on the grounds does cost a fee.

If you love the outdoors and history, then the Almaden Quicksilver County Park is the place for you. With over 34.2 miles of hiking trails engraved within the historic California mining landscape, you and your dog can get some good exercise and quality bonding time while experiencing a bit of history from the late 19th century. Dogs are strictly required to be leashed, on a leash no longer than six feet, and the count of dogs is limited to two (2) per handler (handlers must be 16 years or older). All dogs visiting must have a valid license (proof of licensure) and vaccinations, be well-behaved, and cleaned up after. Dogs in heat are not permitted.

We know you deserve it, spoil you and Rover with a day of R&R at Santana Row. This shopping center is located on Olin Avenue and has pet-friendly patios for enjoying a bite (see what we did there?), a ridiculous number of well known stores including Apple and Nordstrom, salons, and spas. Every store has its own pet policy, so be sure to check with your favorite outlet before you get there.
