“Kelly has been a great caregiver for our dog, Cali! We have been using Kelly twice a week for the last few weeks and hope to continue. Our dog is super excited to be dropped off there. Our active puppy gets lots of love and attention, playtime and walks and comes home all tuckered out. Kelly is also very responsive to messages and flexible when we have had schedule changes. I strongly recommend Kelly!”
“Excellent care ! Chad is very friendly and knowledgeable. He has a big house with a huge backyard. When I arrived for pick up, my dog was sleeping on the couch. Comfortable and safe. Thank you.”
“Thank you for watching our little Tako!”
“Alexandra was amazingly easy to work with and took such good care of our puppy. She played with her a bunch and didn’t push her to do anything she was skiddish of, even carrying her up and down the stairs to go outside. Koda had a great time and we can’t wait to book with her again!”
“Charlene was very responsive and shared pics of Lulu throughout the day. She has a great back yard and rooms in her house for dogs to play and hang out in. We appreciated that she took Lulu for 4 long days at short notice.”
“Kristy was amazing, she gave us updates throughout the day which was really important to my wife and I, as our sweet old timer suffers from separation anxiety. But with Kristy, she seemed so happy to be there and she looked like she was really enjoying her time with the other dogs. I was scared she wouldn’t want to come back home! I would wholeheartedly recommend her!”
“Negar was so amazing taking in taking care of our puppy that she didn’t want to come back with us and wanted to stay with Negar ?”
“We have been boarding & dogsitting with Charlene for over a year now and we've had consistent, positive experiences every single time. Charlene has excellent communication. She works around our drop-off and pick-up schedules with every visit and her flexibility is so helpful when our flights get delayed or things happen that we did not anticipate. We have two 70+ lbs. pitbulls who literally jump out of our car to meet Charlene at her gate every single time we drop them off. Charlene is such an amazing sitter that she always has more than one dog at her home, which provide our pups with the exercise and socialization that they need, and they love it! Charlene sends us multiple pictures while we're gone and we never have to ask her for an update. It is absolutely clear that she loves dogs & is great at what she does or she wouldn't have all of her stellar reviews! Book fast and far ahead, because her schedule fills up quick! In regards to food, we always pack extra food for our dogs and they will not go through all of it. Every dog I've owned goes on a hunger strike each time we leave them with a sitter/boarder. They are fine, every time. If you're looking for a flexible, reliable sitter who tells it like it is, book with Charlene!”
“Casper had a great time with Jhoanna. Since she has multiple dogs with her, he had a lot of play buddies and came back home happy and tired. She sent regular updates and photos. We will definitely have Casper with her again!”
“Milo had a great day with Lilian and Mango. He went on a long hike and had lots of fun in their backyard. Milo is looking forward to his next visit!”
“Amy, Charley and Addie have been really great with my rescue dog Kiki. They are loving but firm, take her on great walks, and follow the expectations I set. Kiki is always very excited to see them which of course makes me feel great about leaving her in their care. I trust Amy and her kids completely. Thanks!”
About: I have had a dog my entire life from the time I was a kid, ever since I can remember. I am skilled with dogs and I've taken dog training classes so I know what your dog is saying by reading his/her body language. I am good with puppies and older dogs and I can also manage a dog whose somewhat skiddish or scared by moving slow and taking time to let the dog trust me. I have two dogs of my own and I walk them daily on long walks, usually 1.5 hours in the oakland hills . Happy to bring your dogs along or happy to have them come stay with me at my house should you need it. Pet care fits into my everyday schedule as I have 2 dogs of my own (they are socialized and good with other dogs). I would Say I spend about 1.5 hrs walking them per day total plus time for attention when hanging out at home. I work from so it's easy to have the dogs here with me and they get plenty of attention and love. I have a fenced yard with space for some running but most of the running takes place while out on long walks. I also have a good clean pet friendly home. I am great at following instructions when It comes to dog sitting or house sitting. I'm dependable and trustworthy and I know how to care for your dogs safely in any environment whether your house or having them at my house.
“Our pup had a fantastic day with Kelsey! They’ve got a great setup, clean and bright living space with lots of space for lounging and a big fenced yard with some shady chilling spots. Kelsey was so sweet with our boy and knowledgeable about dog interactions. We felt totally comfortable and happy with our pup spending the day with Kelsey and will do it again soon.”
“I have had the honor of being around Hannah and her beautiful furbabies. She's a true pet lover and it's evident just being around her. She takes her love and care for animals very seriously and always prioritizes the needs for her pups. Not only is Hannah exceptional with her own furbabies, but she's loving with any animal she meets. I worked for Chewy (online pet retailer) and am thoroughly impressed with her level of knowledge and care. When she met my 21 years old senior pup, she was so gentle and ensured he was comfortable and loved. Not many people do well with senior dogs and watching Hannah my Stuart melted my heart. Anyone would be honored to have Hannah take care of their pets. She takes her time to understand their wants/needs, she prioritizes their health and safety, provides nurturing and love, and takes the time to continuously educate herself on how to be even better than she already is. She's a true professional and animal lover which makes Hannah the perfect fit.”
“Diana did a great job taking care of Bonnie. I'm very grateful for the help when plans changed last minute. Bonnie was so relaxed and obviously had a great day.”

About: Born and raised among a delightful variety of pets in Guatemala, my lifelong affinity for dogs has led me to become a dedicated dog caregiver, with an emphasis on dog walking in the bustling landscapes of California. Growing up with a loyal companion – a charming mix of a Cocker Spaniel and a Dachshund – allowed me to experience countless treks through picturesque landscapes, from Lake Tahoe's majestic views to Los Angeles's vibrant cityscapes. The extraordinary bonds formed with my companion, especially after a memorable event of her retrieving my lost sandal from a lake, have fueled my passion for dog care. A couple of years ago, my dedication was put to the test when a young Siberian Husky under my care was diagnosed with an esophageal disorder. The heartbreaking decision to let him go reminded me of the significant role we play as caregivers in these precious lives. Drawing from these personal experiences, my dog walking services ensure a combination of love, adventure, and unwavering care. I aim to provide each dog with the joy of exploration and companionship, promising memorable outings that foster lifelong connections. My mission is to make a positive difference in their lives, one walk at a time. With a flexible work-from-home schedule focused on web design and SEO ranking, I am available to provide exceptional care for your dogs. My dedicated attention ensures a safe and loving environment where they can thrive. Rest assured that your furry friends are in safe hands. With tailored exercise, playtime, and endless affection, they will feel right at home. I prioritize their well-being, closely monitoring their health and promptly addressing any concerns that may arise. You can have peace of mind knowing that your dogs are cherished and cared for with the utmost love and attention. They can look forward to 2-3 daily walks, each lasting 30 minutes, ensuring they receive ample exercise to keep them happy and healthy.
“Megan is so incredibly loving with animals! She has pet-sat our rambunctious Lab multiple times, and is super responsible (follows all instructions perfectly), communicative and so focused on our pup- he adores her! I highly recommend Megan for both pet sitting and walking- she treats all animals with such love and is so patient and kind. Our dog is so sad whenever she leaves!”
“Bernie had such a lovely time with the crew! Kim and Jeff were so lovely, patient, and kind to him. We received plenty of photo and text updates throughout the day, which made us feel so confident about leaving our fur baby with separation anxiety in their care. Highly recommend ?”

“My shy guy had the best time! He’s usually too nervous his first day at a new place to do more than wait for me to come back- but he felt right at home, getting lots of pets, zooming and playing with sweet Maple”
