“Walking your best friend is an honor!”

Growing up with 4 family dogs and having to take care of them, I can assure you that I will provide quality service for you and your dog. I'm responsible, friendly and organized and always make an effort to make sure both the owner and dog are happy and satisfied at the end of every walk.

My name is Tony I have a blue nose pit bull that’s 4 years old. I’ve had a few dogs growing up some where my moms some where my grandmas but I’ve been around dogs since I was a baby. I know all the things you need to know about what dogs can and can’t eat and signs that dogs give to express how they are feeling and what calms them when they are scared or have anxiety. So I have a strong care for dogs and like being around them.

If you want to go on a more adventurous hike with mesmerizing views, then you must visit the Solstice Canyon. This canyon is located in Malibu, around 29 miles away from Van Nuys. This place is pawfect for you and your pup if you want some extra exercise while enjoying some breathtaking scenes of the ocean. Your dog has to be on leash when you're visiting, though. Make sure you bring lots of water for you and your pup, and poop bags, too. The path is not fully shaded, so this hike can be a lot more difficult in the summer. Try visiting when it's not too hot for the most comfortable experience.
