    “Exercise and fresh air with love and safety”

    Consider me a part of your canine team! Im doing this because I love dogs. I know more dogs in my neighborhood than people. Getting your pup out to exercise, smell things and get some fresh air is critical and when you can't, I happily will! I've grown up with pets, volunteer caring for wildlife, often dog sit (we call it co-parenting) and I'm responsible, I follow through, and will gladly update you, send photos and care for your dog(s). I grew up with two Great Danes so can handle all sizes.

    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.

    “I’ll love and care for your pups like family.”

    Hi, I’m Lucia, an Italian American from San Jose! Over the years I have had opportunities to care for and walk a variety of dog breeds ranging from Standard Poodle and Pit Bull to Yorkie and French Bulldog. I love being active by hiking so I will make sure your dog is satisfied each and every walk.

    Hi, I'm Gillian. I grew up in England in a household full of pets, including Cindy the Welsh corgi & Rover the old sheep dog. Years later, we have Priya, a rescued beagle-mix. I began dog walking 8 years ago in Florida, with dogs of all sizes and ages from dachshunds and poodles to bulldogs and Huskies! I love meeting new dogs & giving them a good walk for fun and exercise. I ve volunteered at animal shelters and the SPCA, I am professional & caring, and ready to begin a new adventure with Wag!

    Hello! During my nannying experience I have become a designated pet caretaker as well. I am also a current pet owner of two loving cats, Nyla and Nalo. In addition to caring for children I grew up caring for dogs and cats all of my life, while growing up with four Rottweiler’s, three pit bulls and my childhood cats that have crossed the rainbow bridge. I used to be a python snake and salamander owner as well. My animals are my babies and I will treat yours as if they were my own!

    “Give every puppo a hug and a squeeze”

    After over 600 walks for canine clients, I've gained much confidence and experience to care for all kinds of puppos. Today I am a proud momma to a German Shepherd mix I adopted, and we're so happy together. Dogs are wonderful creatures. I often feel like we don't deserve such loyalty and undying affection. For all they do for us, I like to give back and remind them how much they are loved and appreciated.

    “Let’s have a puptastic day!”

    Hi! I’m Nicole, since I was a young I've been surrounded by animals. From our own dogs & cats to the animals I raised while in 4-H. I’ve learned that every animal is different down to their personalities & habits. I've been pet sitting & walking dogs for the last 6 years through Wag & for friends and family. I’ve now worked with many breeds and different sized dogs, giving each the equal love, appreciation & dedication I do my own. I would love to share that commitment with your fur loves.

    “Will Walk 4 Treats”

    3 years with Wag, and I couldn't be happier. I've had the opportunity to make great connections, care for and spend time with the best dogs, and get my own very much needed excersice. My relationship with clients, and K9's alike, are very important, I work constantly to improve on them daily. I think I've done well as a pet caregiver because I enjoy it. Hopefully I can do that for you.

    “Fear Free Certified Pet Professional”

    Hi and welcome to WAG! I love dogs and making them happy by getting them out for some exercise and fun. I am Fear Free Certified Pet professional. I am also a dog owner and was a shelter volunteer where I took workshops about how to handle dogs including fearful, adolescents and puppies. I use positive reinforcement, and have taken a dog cognition and behavior course. I bring my neutered male border collie on walks with me. He’s dog friendly and I’ve never had a problem on a walk with him along.

    Looking for a place to dine with your four-legged friend? Look nofurther than Soquel’s South Main Street! You’ll find something here for even the pickiest pooches and owners. Carpo’s serves up the best in comfort food, and their skirt steak is simply delicious. Michael’s on Main does a great artichoke ravioli and welcomes wagging tails outside. If you fancy slaking your thirst after a long day in the California sun, consider stopping by Santa Adairius Rustic Ales. And afterward, you two can burn it all off with a leashed walk by the creek in Lion’s Park. Don't forget the waste baggies!

    Since Soquel is so close to the shore, it’d be a huge faux paw not to take a trip to the beach! New Brighton State Beach in Capitola is just two and a half miles from downtown Soquel, and your pooch is welcome to stroll on the sand alongside you, provided they stay on-leash. Pups can splash about in the shoreline surf, but unfortunately, though doggy-paddling is a huge draw for humans, paddling by dogs is not permitted. There’s plenty of parking, but you’ll need to pay -- though you and your buddy might end up thinking that $10 for the day was well worth it!

    If your four-legged pal loves hiking, you’d need to be barking mad not to bring them to the Forest of Nisene Marks State Park! Just on the border between Soquel and Aptos, this pawesome preserve features miles upon miles of trails, surrounded and shaded by tall pines and majestic redwoods. Fitter furry friends in search of a challenge might appreciate the Maple Falls trail, which features some steep inclines and breathtaking views over the eponymous waterfall. Less athletic animals needn’t feel left out, though -- there are plenty of hikes suitable for a less taxing walk! Signage is sparse, so look up a trail map before you go!

    Make no bones about it -- a trip to Aptos Dog Park is sure to get your buddy’s tail wagging! The dog run is huge -- there’s space enough here for even the most energetic fur-balls to leap about to their hearts' content. There’s a separate area for small dogs and an "all dogs" area for bigg’uns and little’uns who just want to get along. Bags and water are provided, so just bring your pup and prepare to play! After you two have worked up an appetite, consider chowing down at Bittersweet Bistro. Their pizzas are the stuff of local legend, and doggy diners are welcome outside.

    If you two are looking for a little variety in your off-leash activities, why not take a drive to Santa Cruz and check out the University Terrace Dog Park? The park isn’t as large as the one in Aptos, but there’s still enough room for your pooch to run around and tire themselves out in, and tired owners are sure to appreciate the shaded seating. University Terrace Dog Park has an added bonus -- some bright spark had the furrific idea of putting the off-leash area right next to the tennis court, so the regulars have ended up with an endless supply of free balls!
