THE JET DOG DIFFERENCE

We believe in the strength and importance of the dog-human bond and know that dogs take something away from every interaction they have. So our goal is to always make our hikes, walks, and dog boarding time with your pup positive and productive. There’s a big litter of dog walkers in Oakland, CA, to choose from—but here are the many reasons why we lead the pack.

Audree (she/her)

Audree (she/her)

Audree started Jet Dog in July 2013 after leaving a job in Human Resources with the idea that she needed to learn more about dogs to start her after school program to train youth to train dogs in shelters, and help them find homes. Not only did she learn a ton about dogs, but so much more – customer service, how vital coordination of details is in this business, and the art of compassion.  She serves as the sole point of contact for all clients to keep the standard of care high and consistent. She’s had a special connection with dogs her whole life, thanks to her childhood furry friend, MacGregor, her amazing dog, Jet (the namesake for Jet Dog) who lived a long life until passing peacefully at home in 2020 at the age of 16, and her current Mexican Mutt, Sola (pictured here – a failed foster her and her son brought home to the US after living in Mexico & volunteering at a shelter there).

Oakland dog walker Patrick

Patrick (he/him)

Patrick is an East-Coast transplant with the perfect amount of East Bay in him. For many years, he was a dog walking professional in San Francisco, so he knows dogs and pack behavior very well. (He’s also an overall great guy!) Pups just love the way he talks to them.

Oakland dog walker Hargo

Hargo (he/him)

Hargo has spent the better part of the last decade in the pet industry, which means he has tons of doggie knowledge and is always ready for a fun-and-fur-filled day on the trail with a pack. When he’s off the trail, he spends his time with his own pup, Junior.

Jenee (she/her)

Jenee (she/her)

Jenee was born and raised in the Bay Area and comes to Jet Dog with an inherent love of animals. She has lived with dogs, horses, rabbits and any other creature she could spend time with. In addition to walking for Jet Dog she is a body worker, and spent 30 years with human creatures as a preschool teacher. Her life long dream of living with a Malamute came true in 2016 when she and her husband rescued Malka, the sweetest, most chill ‘big dog’ you could ever meet. 

Kevin (he/him)

Kevin (he/him)

When Kevin landed in the Bay Area 11 years ago from his homeland of NE Ohio, his first job was at an area doggie play and daycare. There, Kevin learned the ways of ‘dog mind’ as he supervised groups of up to 50 dogs. After his time there, he continued to care for the pups and kitties of his guitar students. “There is nothing that makes my heart smile more than being in the presence of our furry brothers and sisters.”  
Tiki (she/her)

Tiki (she/her)

Tiki lives in Oakland. She has been caring for animals since she was a child. She has been caring for dogs professionally over the last 15 years. She has done training service and search, sitting, kenneling, and some grooming over the years. 
 
Isa (they/them)

Isa (they/them)

Hi, I’m Isa. I’ve been taking care of dogs and cats my whole life. I have always had a strong connection with animals. As an adult, my dog Baxter has become my personal beacon of joy and happiness in my daily life. I am an active person who loves the outdoors and want to be in the woods or on the beach in California with dogs at all times. I have a deep respect and love for animals and will likely fall in love with your pets and always give them the best possible care they may need.

 
Maggie (she/her)

Maggie (she/her)

Maggie was born and raised and continues to live in Oakland.  With years of experience sitting for dogs and cats on her own, she is thrilled to be a part of Jet Dog and in the company of humans who love and respect animals as much as she does.  An added bonus is her heightened compassion for senior pets, and experience caring for them and their special needs.  

Ruth (she/her)

Ruth (she/her)

Ruth has been actively involved with dogs for over 2 decades.  A Former Co-Owner of Paws & Claws, a Natural Pet Food store & grooming spa (est. 2004), she was on the forefront of introducing exceptional pet foods, homeopathic tinctures, and natural products to the local community.  Paws & Claws also introduced the cage free method of dog grooming to the field. After selling Paws & Claws in 2019, she continues to be involved with dogs by volunteering with “A Dogs New Life” in Bucerias, Mexico whenever she visits her home in Mexico. She also enjoys pet sitting and prides herself on the exceptional attention and love she gives all dogs.  She currently has 2 terrier mutts who enjoy traveling with her and her wife to Mexico during vacation time. 

Dean (he/him)

Dean (he/him)

I have lived in Hayward for over 5 years. For more than 30 years I have worked in education, healthcare and legal professions. I have always loved dogs.  We have our own furbaby, Daniel. He is a rescue and is just amazing.
For the past 12 years, I did Boarding/Walking on the side, and in addition, I’ve lived with 2 dogs and provided care for them.  I am now transitioning into doing it on a full-time basis.
I only accept one dog at a time, so your pup will get tons of attention love, and playtime.
Maria (she/her)

Maria (she/her)

Hi, I’m Maria,
I bring my lifelong love for animals and in-depth experience with my own cats and dogs of different sizes and temperaments to every pet encounter, to provide exceptional care for your four-legged family members. I understand how important it is to find a professional you can trust, and that’s why I’m happy to join Jet Dog’s dedicated team. When I’m not looking after your pups, I’m taking care of my own two very active kitties who are 5 and 12 years old.
