I love dogs and can't get enough of being around them even though I have three of my own. I'm the guy who was on the front page of the Press-Democrat on June 18, 2012 walking 16 dogs at once. So of course I want to walk your dog(s) too! I take my own dogs for at least two 4 to 6 mile walks every day, rain or shine. I also take them to the park, so they can retrieve balls from the Chuck-it. When it's just my own dogs, I'll often ride my bike while they run or trot beside and behind me. I steer with one hand and hold the leashes with the other. We live about a mile and a half from the Rincon Valley Community Park, so we often go to the dog park there. We are within easy walking distance of Howarth Park or Spring Lake, but I don't simply take the dogs there - it's like swimming in a pool right next to the ocean. We go there sometimes, but I walk all over town so that the dogs and I are likely to see interesting things. I have a female Newfoundland, a male border collie mix, and a female beagle. Your dog could be any breed/age/size, and it would fit in just fine. My dogs are all very friendly and non-aggressive. There isn't any standard rate I charge anymore. Instead, the rate depends on about 8-10 factors, some of which are obvious (how much work does the dog present, how far out of my way is it) and some of which may not be. But for a "vanilla" dog who is pretty much normal, the range would likely be $15 - $25 per walk. There are discounts for multiple walks in a week, and the size of the discount is specific to each circumstance. Since dogs need to get outside to exercise and relieve themselves every day, I would be pleased to walk your dog any day(s) of the week, even including weekends. No matter what the weather is like, I'm always up for a walk. So is your dog! I am happy to walk dogs anywhere in Santa Rosa or Oakmont. If you live in Rohnert Park, Cotati, Petaluma, Windsor, Healdsburg, or Kenwood, I might walk your dog(s), depending on a few factors, e.g., where you live, when you want it or them walked, how often, etc. for a bit more money, to be negotiated. I'm very flexible about when I take my walks. Dog walking is my hobby and my exercise. I walk dogs, period. Day or night, hot or cold, rain or shine. I'm a self-employed attorney, and I set my own schedule. I do what I want to do all day long, so I have a seemingly inexhaustible supply of energy. I'm happy to walk your dogs anytime that is mutually convenient, but I rarely do evening walks as I tend to have a lot going on in the early evening. I also do pet sitting, either in your home or in mine, but I am far too busy to spend the night in your home, so I would suggest you only consider me for pet-sitting if you would like your dog to stay in my home. I do not use crates, ever. The rates for my pet-sitting work depend on each unique client's situation and needs, and they are very reasonable. I typically charge $20-30 per day for daycare, and $25-35 per day for an overnight visit. But the rates for pet-sitting are even more specific to each dog than the rates for walks; so much depends on what your dog's specific needs and issues are. I'm not doing this primarily for the money, obviously. I just love animals. I've also got a cat, and he does what he pleases, as all cats do. And, of course, I have excellent, current references.
I provide in-home obedience/behavior training for all breeds and all ages (also using near-by parks). Working with the dog's own intelligence to form a bond between you, make your dog a good canine citizen, and one you can take everywhere that is appropriate. I offer basic on-leash training for approximately 6 weeks and advanced work off-leash work for 4 weeks with you and your dog on what you need. Behavior such as leash aggression, house training, destructive behavior, nervousness, and many other issues can be addressed within the work of bonding with and training your dog. Training is based on consistency, firmness, and compassion. I also do pet care -- walking and caring for pets. I can do chores for you as well (mail, water plants, etc.). I will spend quality time with your pet(s), playing, hanging out (not on my iPhone).

Just came back from our vacation home in Idaho. I had never used Thumbtack before - however the experience was wonderful. We hired Elizabeth Vargas of Liz TLC house and pet sitting. She did an outstanding job. I especially appreciated the photos and messages from her during our trip so we did not worry. Not only did she take care of three cats and four chickens she also watered our garden! Not easy with as hot as it was while we were gone. Would strongly recommend her. Michele Ruberto
