Meet our team in San Jose

Our team in San Jose walks in the city and the surrounding area - we will be adding towns soon.

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! 



Hi, I am Sam and I live in Santa Clara. I worked in animal hospitals I'm been a dog trainer for many years. I especially love working with the  "difficult" dogs. I personally have a rescue Doberman Pinscher at home who has truly been the best part of my life and my inspiration.

When I'm not working with dogs, I enjoy camping and hiking, and playing the sport roller derby I also enjoy quiet nights in playing games and catching up on shows and movies.

It's extremely rewarding being able to turn my passion for dogs into a career with Pupwalks. I'm super excited to get to to know and walk the pups of the South Bay!”
