Group Dog Walking Hikes
Not just a neighborhood hike, I love taking your dog and their friends into the trails of the Berkeley Hills. We don’t go to dog parks and hope they run around, I ensure that they get great exercise and come home relaxed.
I pick up your dog and friends in a fully air-conditioned van, decked out just for pups
After driving to a carefully selected trail, I unboard them one at a time to ensure ease, comfort, and focus for each dog
We take a vigorous 1 hour hike on trails with challenging hills
We go out rain or shine (if it rains I rinse them off before returning home)
Our walks are mainly off- leash, but can be easily leashed upon request
Your dog will get plenty of recall practice every day
Positive reinforcement only
Great chance for your dog to develop good socialization skills with other dogs
Some dogs may take some time to get used to another human or might not be used to going around with other dogs. For some dogs, lower-than-usual energy and stamina levels might be the challenge. We recommend exclusive and individualized sessions to help coax them out of their reservations or to train and orient them prior to joining a pack. The sense of group adventure has to be slowly re-introduced, so your dog is taken around on energetic walks in more level grounds before going on individual trek hikes. One-hour walks for 2-4 weeks should be sufficient to work on their recall, energy, and/or team behavior before they can go on packs.

Boarding and House-Sitting
Depending on the best arrangement for both owner and pet, I can look after your pet at my place or yours, when you can’t be around for a period of time. I will provide the attention, affection, and the all-important workout she needs while you are away. Either way, I will keep you updated with snapshots and a short note daily, via email.
Contact me when you are going on a trip and need a trusted professional who knows and understands dogs.

Berkeley Dog Walkers was developed for dog workouts outdoors, but we do have some packages for your feline companion(s), your “grounded” dog, and pets who just need to stay home while the rest of the family goes on vacation.
I offer drop-in visits to help give them some attention and playtime. We recommend an hour to work out the energy they need to spend, even indoors.
