Meet our team in TriValley
Our team in the TriValley area walks in San Leandro, Castro Valley, Dublin, Pleasanton and Livermore.
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!
Ashley walks dogs in the Dublin & Livermore area. She spent years as a professional dog groomer where she learned how to “read” dog body language skillfully and gained experience with a multitude of dog breeds and temperaments.
Ashley also has previous experience with walking and pet sitting so she made a very smooth transition to professional dog walking with Pupwalks! Ashley is warm and friendly and is a natural “dog person”. Here she is with Hogan and Hagen, two loving and entertaining Labrador youngsters we walk in Livermore.
Ashley comes to us with years of petsitting and walking experience here in the TriValley area and we are so happy to have another walker on our team who is truly passionate about dogs!
