Hello fellow tail-WAGgers. If you are looking to find a trusted friend for your dog who will reciprocate that love that they give you when you can’t be there, I'm right here! My name is Jackie and I learned how to run on four legs before I learned to walk on two. I’ll be your dog’s best friend(other than you, of course). Your dog is in good hands with me—or should I saw paws?

“Hello everyone! Thank you for visiting my profile.”

At 12 years of age, I started a dog walking business in my neighborhood. This is what really exposed me to dogs of all sorts of shapes and sizes. Later on in life, I knew that animals had a special place in my heart so I’ve dedicated my time to learn more about caring for them. I am currently a vet assistant majoring in Animal Science at Cal Poly. I’ve worked in dog hotels, wildlife centers & animal shelters. I love what I do and I am dedicated in being the best dog walker/sitter for your pet.

"The world would be a better place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog." My love for animals began at a very early age. There hasn’t been a time in my life when pets weren’t a part of it. I don`t have a doggy right now as I am investing my time and resources towards my career but I am happy that Wag gives me an opportunity to share love and care with dogs whenever I have a free time.

“I’ll treat your pups as though they’re my own!”

Hi! I'm Tara, and I attend school at Cal Poly studying sociology and minoring in music. I have a 12 year old Beagle named Ollie at home in OC and I love taking him on walks as well as spending time with him outdoors. Unfortunately, I don’t have a pup in town with me here, so wag is perfect for me. I am an experienced dog walker and I do well with all kinds of dogs. I have a house with a yard for your pup to run around in if you need a sitter, and my roommates are all dog lovers, too!

Dog Walking in Avila Beach

Avila Beach is known for its gorgeous beaches – some of which welcome pups and their owners and have even become unofficial dog beaches by locals! But the small town doesn’t offer any vet clinics or much else in the way of paw-friendly activities, save for a few restaurants that welcome pooches.

If wineries are your thing, though, you can have your fill of vineyards and good wine, all while enjoying time with your pooch, at the Avila Valley Wine & Roasting Company in Avila Beach. There are also some other dog-friendly wineries very close to Avila Beach, like Claiborne & Churchill Vintners and Chamisal Vineyards in San Luis Obispo.

And, just a few miles away in Pismo Beach, there is plenty of room for other doggie adventures. The Monarch Butterfly Grove, located right near the beloved Pismo Beach itself, is the pawfect spot to catch the annual influx of Monarch butterflies to the area! Your well-behaved pooch is welcome to join you to catch a glimpse of the beautiful creatures. Or, take Spot to Oceano Dunes, a dog-friendly beach that gives him a chance to socialize and play in the sun.

Fun awaits you and your four-legged friends just minutes away from Avila Beach!
