    “Dogs follow those who love them unconditionally”

    Hello everyone, My name is Melanie Mora. I have a lot of passion for dogs and cats which is the reason why I am pursuing a career in veterinary medicine. I enjoy spending time with animals, it has always brought me peace and happiness. I believe that all animals should be treated with a lot of respect like any other living being on this planet.

    I like long walks on the beach, with your dog. I am a long time dog/animal lover and really enjoy spending time outside. I recently moved back to the Southern California area from Seattle, WA. Let's just say I'm happy to be walking in the sunshine with your fuzzy children. For experience, I have worked at an animal shelter for felines in the past, another one of our fuzzy companions.

    Hi! Dog walker here! I have many years of walking experience with my 2 dogs, a golden and a greyhound that are both senior ladies. I have walked shelter dogs for 5 years, so I'm familiar with lots of breeds and behaviors. I have also fostered dogs (mainly labs and a few pitties) and volunteer with the ASPCA and Humane Society US on field operations. I'm a huge worrier when it comes to leaving my own dogs for longer periods, so I will definitely be sure to give lots of feedback and pictures!

    Hi, my name is Briana and I am currently in the San Luis Obispo area as a Cal Poly student. I've grown up with plenty of animals and currently have a two year old pup, Bradley, right now. I worked at a professional doggie daycare and grooming service for 2 years, until I moved, so I have plenty of experience. My responsibilities were in the daycare as well as walking to dog owners house to sit and walk. Dogs have always been apart of my life and I can't wait to continue doing what I love!

I have had an obsession with dogs my whole life and will bring that dedication to each and every walk. I have been raised with big and small dogs alike , I believe in communicating with dogs and understanding what they feel, rather than being rough and loud. Thank you for your time ! I look forward to walking your pups!
