Meet our team in Berkeley & Oakland
Our team in covers Oakland, Berkeley and Alameda island and the surrounding area.
Every one of our walkers has passed administrative interviews, personal reference checks, test-walking, and thorough criminal background checks. Each of our Pupwalkers also has previous experience with dog-handling, customer service, and a positive mind-set. This makes sure they can work well with you and provide loving care for your dogs!
PupWalker Katie has joined our Berkeley team! She has professional dog walking and pet sitting experience in addition to volunteering at an animal shelter.
Katie has worked with a multitude of dog breeds and personalities. She enjoys building personal relationships with each dog she works with. She is pictured here with Layla, who we walk in El Cerrito.
Katie is also an artist who specializes in sculpting. When she is not walking dogs, she enjoys spending time with her Maine Coon kitty.
We are thrilled to have her as part of the team!
