Meet our team in Marin
Our team in Marin walks in Sausalito and up the 101 corridor through Mill Valley, Tiburon, Belvedere, Corte Madera, San Rafael and Novato. We also walk in Fairfax and San Anselmo.
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!
Amy volunteered at a hospital for three years helping patients. This was immediately interesting for us when she applied.
She always wanted to be involved with animals and used to house sit and walk all the neighbors dogs.
Amy has a dog who is now seven years old and is half Yorky and half Shih Tz. His name is Chuck. Amy and Chuck love the beach she also likes to go long boarding. You can see her here with one ot our favorite walks - Flynn out past McInnis Park!

She has a Chiweenie called Banana.
When she's not playing with Banana show loves being with her friends, reading, art and playing video games.
Christi lives in Novato and walks our friends mainly in San Rafael, San Anselmo and Novato.
We were excited when Christi applied to join us in 2017 because here was someone who loves dogs, had dog experience and over 15 years of customer service roles. She was keen to leave behind the corporate life and change to the outdoor world. Yay!
Christi lives with Poppy who is a seven year old Yorkie (you can see them in this picture) . She also spends quite alot of time each week caring for her mother and doing fun outdoor stuff.
Over the last year we've had nothing but great comments from her clients and happiness from the dogs!
Eleni joined us in 2017 and walks in San Rafael and Novato.
When we hire new team members we look for previous dog handling experience, pleasant personalities that can get on well with our clients and the desire to work with dogs.
Eleni had been a dog walker for two years. When we met her we were immediately impressed by her as a person. Since she's been with us, all her clients adore her, as do their dogs!

Kim loves dogs, dogs and dogs. She has a 2 year old terrier mix called Winnie, who she totally loves! You can see her here with Charlie.
When she applied to walk with us we were excited to see that she'd been walking dogs for several years.
When Kim is not focussed on dogs she's into comics, cartoons, cosplay, movies and did we say dogs! If you're into foreign movies she seriously loves the work of Wong Kar Wai.
Lindsey walks our friends in San Rafael, San Anselmo and Corte Madera.
When she applied to join us we were intrigued to learn that she had driven a bus from Missouri to New York and then across to the west coast! We love people who have done unusual and individual things.
She is interested in holistic and natural healing, herbs and natural medicine.
Lindsey has had several dogs. Her Husky was called Floki, her Dachshund mixes were Marley & Chico
