IT'S MY GOAL
to help pet owners keep their dogs happy and healthy by providing specialized dog care in the form of exercise, socialization, and personalized attention.
My passion for animals and interest in serving others inspired my decision to become a professional pet care provider. I grew up in Los Angeles, California living on a private dog friendly beach. Canines were everywhere! And each member of my family had their own special furry friend. Animals have always been a big part of my life but it wasn't until I moved to the Bay Area that I began to consider entering the field of professional pet care. I found myself in the right place at the right time and in 2014 Giddyup Pup Inc was born.

How It Works:
I offer structured daycare outings. The day starts and ends with me picking up and dropping off your dog while ensuring the security of your home. Pick ups are between 9-11am and drop offs are between 3-5pm.
Everyday is different, I like to give the dogs a large variety of experiences to keep them interested and learning. Somedays we go to local dog friendly parks and other days we take field trips outside the city. All while practicing and reinforcing basic obedience commands and recall.
We dedicate a portion of the day to polite leash etiquette. I teach them loose leash walking through local neighborhoods to expose the dogs to environments filled with common distractions to help acclimate them to busy city life.
My main focus is safety, exercise, then play. It’s easy to pick up bad habits from the dog park when surrounded by dogs with varying degrees of socialization. A pack provides a stable and familiar social network.
