“Rain or Shine, it’s Dog Walk Time!”

My name is Azaelea. I have 2 sweet, loyal and loving companions of my own, named The Beast, and Fiona Darling - their care is my top priority. I have had dogs my entire life, and for the last 10+ years I have walked, watched, boarded, as well as rescued and re-homed many dogs along the way. I have learned that I value spending time with dogs more than I could have ever known, and that dog owners value the care of their dogs more than anything. I look forward to spending time with your dog!

“Dependable, Cheerful, And Loves Animals”

I love to take long walks on the beach (with your dog) and play fetch with sticks!. I always carry a pop up water bowl and extra potty break bags, along with a puppy first aid kit. If you forget your leash, don’t worry! I carry an extra in my backpack. If your dog doesn’t like walks, I have organic peanut butter and bacon treats that can inspire the most resistant pooch. Your doggie is in great hands.

Hi! My name is Joseph and am originally from the East Bay region, but currently live in the the Midtown neighborhood of Sacramento, California. I hold a degree in graphic design from IADT and often do freelance shirt and flyer designs for local bands. Coming from a family of animal lovers, I've been surrounded by all kinds of animals during my life, and dogs are certainly no exception. Having raised rescues almost exclusively throughout my life, I can say I have learned to understand a variety of different needs and personalities that animals may possess, as well as how to be respectful towards the animals feelings or temperament. Big or small, vibrant or calm, I love each any every one of them and nothing makes my day more than meeting a new four legged friend. I hope to make a lasting friendship with both you and your pup soon!
