Hi, my name is Kate Mayer. I recently retired from the engineering world and returned to my main love: working with animals. I have a degree in Animal Science from UC Davis and have a veterinary work experience background. I appreciate all breeds of dogs. I love walking and caring for them, and have yet to meet a dog that didn't end up loving me too.

“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.

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!

Hi, My name is Alex, it's nice to meet you. I have loved dogs my whole life. I enjoy taking care of them and the care they give back in return. Walking your dog will be as rewarding to them as it will be to me. I am here to walk dogs and to do my best to care for them when I am on the job. Although I've attended a few dog training classes, most of my experience comes from being with dogs. I have dog walked elsewhere for 2 years now. I'll do my best to be observant, safe, and professional.
