Dog Walker in San Francisco, CA

Hello everyone! My name is Marina Villasenor! Dog walking has always been a fun activity for me and I’ve been doing it since I was 15 years old (I am currently 19). I have done dog sitting twice and both times were awesome. I have experience with walking dogs, cleaning up after them, feeding them, giving any medication, and play time with them! I love all dogs equally and can’t wait to meet your precious pooch! See Profile
