Hi! My name is Rebecca and I am an animal lover by nature. I grew up surrounded by animals and raised a Border-Collie mix pup to live a long, healthy and happy 16 years! I have walked dogs, house-sat, and cared for all kinds of pets for over 16 years. Obedience classes & agility training courses were part of the growing up process with my own dog, Sara. Mostly we had a fun, goofy time just playing. She went everywhere with me! Since she passed away, I take any chance I can to be around my canine pals. I've always had an affinity for dogs large & small, with boundless energy or a calm disposition. I know how important it is to have your dog(s) well-cared for while you are busy or traveling so I am here to help! I am always up for a leisurely stroll in the neighborhood, brisk walk or challenging hike. Whatever your needs are I can meet them. I feel very fortunate to be able to walk a variety of dogs. It would be my great pleasure to meet your dog and make a new friend!

Just six miles from South San Francisco, you will find Palisades Park. This is a barktastic place for Fido to run and play. There is a great mixture of both grass and dirt. Fido can dig in the dirt, as long as you fill the hole back in when he’s done! That doesn’t sound like a very fair trade, does it? Don’t forget to bring Fido’s ball so you can both enjoy playing a nice game of fetch while you’re here. Shaded benches are aplenty here, so you won’t have to worry about panting as hard as Fido in the California heat. This park is pawpular with the locals, so Fido is sure to make some new fur-iends!
