Welcome to
Daphne's Dog Walking and Pet Care Services


Responsible and Caring Dog Walking and Pet Sitting Service in Poway, Rancho Bernardo, Scripps Ranch, Sabre Springs, Penasquitos and Carmel Mountain Ranch


I have had many breeds of dogs and cats as pets my whole life. Working with animals is my dream job! I have worked with all kinds of dogs and cats, from energetic and playful to senior, rescues and pets with special needs. Every dog and cat has a unique personality, and I enjoy meeting and working with new dogs and cats all the time. I am a loving and reliable companion to all kinds of pets when the parents aren’t available. Contact me If you need a professional local dog walker, puppy walker or in home pet sitter (dog sitter or cat sitter) when you are at work, going on vacation, have a special event or are recovering from surgery.


Before I started my professional pet sitting and dog walking service in 2019, I volunteered for over a two years walking dogs at the San Diego Humane Society for several hours each week. This gave me hands on experience with hundreds of wonderful dogs that I wouldn't have been able to work with otherwise. I also volunteered walking dogs and socializing puppies, cats, and kittens for over a year at Helen Woodward. I was a Red level dog handler-requiring the highest level of skills on their yellow, orange and red scale. I treat all animals with love and respect as if they were my own.


I am a Certified Professional Animal Care Provider (CPACP) with PACCC and I am also certified with Pet Sitters International. I have a Certificate of Completion of Cat and Dog First Aid including CPR from the San Diego Humane Society. I also have a Certificate of Completion from the Fear Free Shelters Program. Their mission is to prevent and alleviate fear, anxiety, and stress (FAS) in pets (both dogs and cats) by inspiring and educating the people who care for them.


I have gone through dog training with my own dogs and am actively training my dog, Roxy, for the American Kennel Club Good Canine Citizenship certification. Making sure that pets are safe, happy and healthy is my priority. Let me know if you have a special situation and I can easily customize a rate for you. I want you to feel completely comfortable with me, so contact me and we can meet soon.
