My name is Alex and I've been living in Santa Monica for a little over nine years now. I love that West LA is so good for getting outside for runs, walks, bike rides, and hikes, and being active has become one of my favorite past times. I grew up with dogs but haven't had my own in years, so I'm excited that this app gives me the opportunity to spend time with dogs again while getting my own exercise as well. I hope that I can match up with some athletic dogs that can run with me, as I know certain breeds need a lot more than just a walk around the neighborhood to really burn off their energy. I look forward to meeting you and your dog soon.

“Your dog’s BEST FRIEND”

Hi, I'm Quinton! I have had various breeds of dogs while growing up (German Shepherd, Labrador Retriever, and Bullmastiff just to name a few). I've fostered, groomed and walked many different breeds of dogs as well! I'm an overall fun and active person, so your dog will definitely have a great time with me! I love jogging too, so if you prefer that your canine friend is more active, I can definitely accommodate.

“All clothing I own is covered in dog hair.”

I've always been the one who everyone calls for anything dog related. I've volunteered at shelters, have worked for a pet behaviorist's radio show, grew up with dogs, and currently have two awesome low-rider pit mix rescue pups of my own. I know how much our dogs can affect every aspect of our lives, and I'd like to help alleviate your stress by making sure your buddies are well cared for while you're out. Let me know if your pups would like to go walking with me soon. I can't wait to meet them!

Dog Walking in Winnetka

Winnetka is a small neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley within the city of Los Angeles. Founded in 1922, Winnetka was once a small farming community, but is famous today as one of most culturally diverse neighborhoods within the city of Los Angeles. Due to the size of Winnetka, there is only one veterinarian clinic within the neighborhood limits, but there is a plethora of veterinarians in the surrounding neighborhoods to help keep your pup healthy and happy.

Winnetka is home to some great parks that you can take your furry friend to for a great afternoon out. Check out Runnymede Park and let your dog enjoy the fun smells and adventures he can go on. Runnymede Park is a whopping 58-acres of beautiful nature that includes a native plant garden with over 100 different types of flowers, plants and wildlife. The park is open from dawn until dusk for hiking and picnicing, and it has two picnic shelters and a paved trail for a pawsome afternoon.

Although Winnetka is a small neighborhood, it is in the greater Los Angeles area where there are tons of things nearby that you and your pup can do. Less than ten minutes away from Winnetka is Lake Balboa/ Antony C. Beilenson Park which is a fantastic park to visit. This park features amazing amenities, like a jogging path to walk Fido on, picnic tables, restrooms, and a multipurpose sports field which is perfect for fetch. Lake Balboa/ Anthony C. Beilenson Park is open from sunrise to sunset, which gives you more then enough time to explore and have a fun time.
