Hello, I am Carlos!

My love for dogs has turned into a business passion after adopting Trina, a formerly unwanted pet with serious behavioral issues. Trina was fearful, distrustful and scared when I met her. Today she is a well adjusted girl who trusts me and we have a very special and close bond. She is my companion and best friend, she helps me throughout the day when meeting new doggies that join our dog daycare service and even helps me to train some pups. But most importantly, she is a very happy girl today.

I am a life-long animal lover, I have been around dogs, cats and exotic pets since my childhood. I truly love animals, I love every pet under my care and being a trainer and a dog walker in Long Beach is not a part-time job for me, it is my life and my profession.

My background is in Advertising, Sales and Marketing, which changed after moving to California from the East Coast. I knew the corporate world did not make me happy, the stress and the daily grind got old. Adopting Trina made me so happy and I fell in love with her and with California so the transition was very natural. I have applied over a decade of business experience to create a company that focuses on something that I am truly passionate about.

The best advice I have received was from my mom, she said: “If you don’t want to go into a corporate office job again, don’t, life is too short, find something you enjoy.” So I did. My favorite part of this business is working with dogs that need help and getting to know them. At the end of the day, we get paid to play with puppies in California weather, it truly is a dream!

My pledge to you: You can feel safe that your pet is in the best hands: experienced, trained, certified and insured professionals who will treat your best friend as our own family.

Hi, my name is Adriene!

I have been around dogs and cats ever since I can remember. I live with Holly and Sophie, a maltese terrier mix who I fell in love with while taking care of her and a pit bull terrier mix. They are the lights of my life and my companions and assistants.

I am in charge of new recruits for our dog daycare service, I perform personality assessments and energy level evaluations. I am a dog training instructor as well and I make recommendations for our daycare doggies that need homework.

My experience working with dogs every day has made me realize that most issues with dogs come from the amount of exercise and the type of exercise a dog gets. That is one of the best parts of being a dog walker and trainer, I get to help people better their relationship with their dogs. I have learned that a well exercised puppy is a happy and healthy puppy.

My pledge to you: I will care for your dog like it was my own, and I will do whatever I can to help you better your relationship with your pup!

Long Beach dog walker and pet sitter:


I am so happy to be a part of the wooftidoo team! I live in Long Beach with my husband and our black lab mix, Marley. Marley came into our lives about six and a half years ago when he was three. He is our second rescue dog. I can’t tell you how much Marley and his predecessor, Scuttle, have enriched our lives. They bring us so much happiness, companionship and joy. I can’t imagine life without a dog or cat to love.
I worked for many years in the corporate world and decided to make a complete change when I was laid off from my job. Having always loved animals I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to do what I have always wanted to do – work with animals.

My pledge to you: You can be assured I will give your pet the best of care and treat him or her as though they were my own.
