It's incredible to think that we started our adventure just six months ago. We've been stunned by the positive reaction to the idea of donating profits to homeless dogs combined with high quality walks for your doggies.
Within these few weeks we have grown quickly.
Sophie was our first new walker. She joined us in November 2016.
She walks dogs and pet sits in Castro Valley, Hayward, and Oakland.
She is also a writer for a newspaper! You can see her here with one her client's dogs, a Bull Mastiff called Gilly
She has worked as a kennel attendant, dog walker, pet sitter, and dog trainer (at doggie day care).
Sophie is very enthusiastic about all things dog and we are lucky to have her on Team Pupwalks.
A few weeks later Jesse joined our team.
He walks dogs with us in the Dublin/Pleasanton area and he also joined us in November 2016
He is an animal lover (of all species) and walks enthusiastically with many different dogs for us.
He enjoys learning about dog behavior and loves to spoil his own cat profusely.
In this photo he is on a walk with Cruiser, an energetic and fun young Shepherd mix.
Our first new walker in the north bay was Shauna.
She joined us in January 2017 and walks dogs with us in Mill Valley, San Anselmo and San Rafael
She has two years of professional dog walking, achieved level 3 training status at Marin Humane. She volunteered & fostered with the Milo Foundation for 3 years and was a kennel attendant at the San Rafael Pet Hospital.
Shauna is starting an online MBA this year and wants to have her own animal related business. Her dogs are called Abby & Linus.
Grace became our 6th walker, joining us in February 2016.
She is walking dogs for us in Novato. here you can see her with one our client's dogs called Oscar, who is a every sweet Shepherdoodle.
Grace also has previous dog walking experience.
Grace is an animal lover and worked for the Milo Foundation and also volunteers at an animal sanctuary called Rancho Compasion in Nicasio. She helps goats, cows, pigs and sheep!
So there you have it. We've gone from a crazy idea to six in just a few short months.
Thanks for your support!
