WHY CHOOSE ME?
There are many reasons to choose Feminist Dog Walker!
I have an unlimited amount of love to give to the pets in my care. I'll love and snuggle your babies like they are my own! During our initial Meet & Greet I like to ask a lot of questions. It’s important for me to have detailed notes about what each pet is used to so I can make our experience together familiar and comforting. Your pet's safety and happiness is my #1 concern!
Do you have a goal in mind when scheduling visits? Does your pet need more exercise, structure, mental stimulation, or just a friend for snuggles? Whatever those needs might be, I’m here for you. Knowing what your goal is will help me shape our time together in a way that has a lasting impact. With updates provided at each visit, you’ll always know what’s going on.
I am educated, prepared for any emergency that may arise, and I proactively avoid situations that are potentially dangerous or uncomfortable for your pet.
Please take a look below for details about the benefits my clients receive!

INSURED AND BONDED
Feminist Dog Walker is insured & bonded through Pet Sitters Associates LLC. In the unlikely event of a pet or human emergency, including instances of property damage, it is essential that your dog walker or pet sitter have insurance. My policy includes bodily injury, property damage, vet expenses, lost key coverage, and more.
With my online booking software Precise Petcare, you can view all past and future visits, book new appointments, create detailed pet profiles, access billing, and view all the adorable photos taken of your pet.
NO EXTRA FEES OR MINIMUM BOOKING REQUIREMENTS
Many companies charge extra fees for evenings, holidays, additional pets or last minute appointment booking. I like to keep things simple with no surcharges and no obligation to book a minimum number of appointments.
FLEXIBLE PAYMENT OPTIONS
For your convenience, I accept cash, check, Venmo and Paypal.
ALL WEATHER SERVICE
Through sun, smoke, rain or ice!
No matter the weather, I'll be there! Extreme weather in the East Bay is rare, but if its ever deemed dangerous for your pet, walks will be shortened and supplemented with inside playtime.
POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT TRAINING
Positive reinforcement is a training method that uses rewards to encourage desired behaviors. Your pet will love the treats, praise, toys, and games we play that teach basic manners, and healthy communication.
SMALL INDEPENDENT BUSINESS
Know your money is going to support a real person in your neighborhood, not a corporation. Your business allows me to stay in Oakland, work with animals, and fulfill my dreams.
I have received both doses of the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine plus the booster shot. Although vaccinated, I do still wear a mask inside my clients' homes. Your health is important to me.
