Dog Walker in Oakland, CA

I love animals. I especially love dogs and spending the majority of my time with them. I was living with and caring for 5 dogs up until my husky passed away in July. We go on almost daily hikes in the Oakland hills, Fort Funston or other hiking areas and dog friendly areas around the Bay Area. I am highly reliable and dependable. I am also a responsible, hard worker.See Profile

Hi, I am a home-based ghostwriter and an experienced animal caretaker. I grew up dogs, cats, hamsters, and birds. I've also been doing professional dog walking for more than three years now. I can take your pups(given that they are trained off leash) to beaches and fun hikes around San Francisco and East Bay, my favorites being Fort Funston and Point Isabel.See Profile

Dog Walker in Oakland, CA

I'm a huge animal lover. I currently have 5 cats and 2 dogs. One of my dogs is 4 year old a chihuahua mix, her name is Roxy. We rescued her from a neighbor who threatened to dump her in the street. My other dog is an 8 year old pit bull named Rocky. He’s about 95 lbs and best friends with Roxy. I grew up with dogs my whole life, I don’t really remember a time when we didn’t have a dog as part of our family. Growing up with animals helped me learn how to be responsible for something other than myself. I love the responsibility that comes with having a dog or cat and I would love to help you with your best friend. I am available Monday-Sunday between 8am and 9pm for walks, a quick visit to...See Profile

  • Do I get to see the route my walker takes on the walk?
