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.
Please meet Breanna!
She walks and pet sits in Pleasanton and Dublin and has three large dogs of her own.
She is skilled with challenging breeds and enjoys high energy pups.
Her hobbies include hiking, spending time in nature, and driving old cars.

Erica joined us in 2017 and brings so much experience to the team.
She has previously worked with dog rescues, Guide Dogs for the Blind, and even owned a dog walking company herself!

We are so thrilled to have another experienced walker join our team in West Dublin/Pleasanton! She has much experience with dogs.
She has worked in dog boarding facilities and shelters, doing everything from walks, group play, and veterinary treatments to petsitting & training. She is also Pet CPR certified. Her knowledge of dog behavior is just as impressive. She is interested in dog behavior and connects regularly with positive reinforcement trainers, attends educational seminars (such as the SFSPCA Canine Symposium), and stays on top of current dog-related scientific research.
