About us: 

We have been providing off-leash hikes for dogs in the Oakland area for over a decade! 

We take pride in ensuring all the dogs in our care have a safe, fun, and engaging outlet for their energy. Our clients are people who understand their dogs need a social and active lifestyle outside of their homes!

We pick up dogs from their homes and transport up to 6 at a time safely to an approved off-leash hiking trail for a social and active session, one group in the morning and one in the afternoon.

We lead packs using positive reinforcement (R+), force-free methods only: no choke chains, pinch collars or shock collars. Just lots of treats, and lots of fun!


We’re seeking the ideal candidate who:

  • Has experience with dogs: either living with their own or has worked in the pet industry

  • Understands how to read dog behavior and body language

  • Can keep calm in chaotic and unpredictable situations

  • Is highly responsible, trustworthy and dependable

  • Has excellent time management skills

  • Has excellent navigational skills and awareness

  • Has excellent communication and people skills (it’s not just dogs ;)

  • Doesn’t mind getting dirty - we hike rain or shine

  • Has a clean driving record and patience! 

  • Can pass a clean background check

  • Is able to multi-task and stay organized amid last minute changes

  • Is physically capable of hiking long distances, in varying terrain and weather conditions 

  • Is physically capable of handling up to 6 dogs of various size, training history and temperament on-leash


Pay is per dog, averages $15-28/hour

Hours between 9:30am-4:30pm Monday thru Friday

Opportunities for extra work via house-sitting and/or overnight boarding as available.


We are seeking a long term crew member - we take the time to train you on our methods and ensure you are set up to succeed. This is not a summer or temporary job, we are offering full-time 5 days a week and long term employment for the right person! There is potential to become salaried with paid vacation for the right candidate. You will love being with dogs and being paid to be outside!
