About Us

We understand the concerns that pet guardians and home owners face when trusting someone else to provide care for their pets when they can't be there. Selecting just the right pet sitter for the care of your pets and home is one of the more important decisions you will make. Our goal is to make sure that plans don't get cancelled and pets don't go uncared for.



Kenya Lopez | Owner

Hello, I'm Kenya Lopez, owner of Dirty Paws Pet Sitting and Dog Walking. For years I was looking for a way to integrate my love of animals with work, earn a living and most of all being happy. With the help of my family and friends, I found it, and soon after, Dirty Paws Pet Sitting and Dog Walking was started.  DPPSDW is owner operated.




  • Thirteen years of pet sitting and dog walking experience handling multiple dog breeds and behaviors.

  • Foster Parent 

  • Volunteer at the Silicon Valley Humane Society as a Dog Socializer.

  • Help find homes for dogs that have been abandoned on the streets by working with rescue groups in my area.

  • Spay/neuter homeless cats that live in my community.

  • Helped with animal rescue in Louisiana when hurricane Katrina hit in 2005.


   I share my home with my husband Alfredo, my dogs Molly, Puchini,

   Shakira, and Pepito. You can also find me caring and admiring for                   my 100 house plants.

Kenya has been taking care of my dog, Maggie, for several months now. I have used her for overnight and daytime visits and I am extremely happy with her services. Kenya is very reliable, friendly and professional. I love how at ease I feel about leaving Maggie in her hands when I go out of town. I definitely recommend Kenya!!
