Meet our team in Contra Costa

Our team in the Contra Costa walks in Walnut Creek, Danville, Concord, Alamo and Lafayette.

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! 



Andrea walks dogs for us in the Pleasant Hill & Concord area. 

She has been working with animals her whole life and has always loved being around dogs.  When she was growing up her parents bred and raised toy poodles. 

She is very adept at handling dogs of all ages and behavior levels. 

We just know that all the dogs that she walks are going to love being around her amazing energy.  So happy to have her on team Pupwalks!

Katie is such a wonderful addition to our PupWalks team.  She is a Contra Costa native and has just moved back home from Atlanta, Georgia. 

She is so excited to be back in her home town and walking dogs!  Katie has always loved animals and grew up with a sweet chocolate lab.  Her calm and gentle demeanor will make all the dogs she walks so happy to be around her. 

Katie has previous dog walking and pet sitting experience and we are so lucky to have her in our PupWalks family!



Kristine Doepel leads our team in Walnut Creek and surrounding areas and we are so happy to have yet another dog fanatic on our management team. 

Before joining us, Kristine spent several years managing an upscale dog-grooming salon in San Ramon.  After having a human family, she realized that she could no longer spend long hours at the salon but also knew she needed to work with dogs to feel fulfilled.  

Needless to say, this is her dream job! We are so lucky to have such an experienced, enthusiastic, and service-oriented person growing with our company. 

Kristine is pictured here with her Labrador Shepherd mix named Jethro.  




She lives in Pleasanton and supports the team in Contra Costa.

Robin has quite the large pack with 5 dogs of her own.

Robin has a masters in Biology and worked as a veterinary technician, international spay/neuter surgery assistant, dog trainer, and rescue volunteer (including fostering and evaluation).  

She says that dogs are more than a hobby for her. Walking dogs is one of her favorite activities and she is grateful to be doing what she loves everyday.
