    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!

    I am a lifelong lover of dogs. I have owned dogs and have lived with and baby-sat for friends' dogs countless times. I have worked in an animal shelter where I cared for many dogs and cats, including difficult and aggressive dogs. I am strong and capable of handling large dogs. I love to walk, play with, and pet dogs, and I am good at giving space to dogs who prefer to be left alone.

    I realized I loved dogs when my sister placed my dog, Maui on my lap nine years ago. I've met so many dogs and dog owners because of her and hope to meet and take care of many more. I've walked dogs for my neighbors and friends. I'm punctual, professional and understand from being a dog owner myself, the safety and well-being of your dog.

    “My whisper is one your dog won’t forget!!”

    Hi, I'm Peggy! I've always loved animals and been mother to two dogs for over ten years. I have experience in caring for both large and small dogs and always make an effort to connect with every dog I encounter. I love the outdoors and discovering nature and doing so in the company of your dog would be a great honor. My goal is to keep your dog fit, happy and looking forward to his next walk!

    I'm a lifetime animal lover. Whether it's playing with ferrets or training horses, I have experience with all sorts of furry creatures. Dogs have always been my favorite animals to play with - I've walked Newfoundlands to Chihuahuas. It doesn't matter how big or small, young or old, my priority is letting them have the most fun as safely as possible.

    My name is Kristie and I moved to the Bay Area 10 years ago from Richardson, TX. I’ve had dogs in my family for most of my life. I’ve been a dog-walker for 4 years, and a critter sitter for much longer. I can also care for your saltwater fish/coral tank. I’m a member of Northern California Herp Rescue society, and advocate adopting broken pets. I currently live with a loveable iguana who lets me out for the day.

    SO grateful for Kristie- she gave my baby a fun summer camp while I was away, which totally put my traveling nerves at ease. Kristie was incredibly responsive, provided numerous updates/pics/videos of my happy boy, and was very flexible with drop-off & pick-up. Will absolutely be reaching out to Kristie again for future summer camps lol!
