Hello! My name is Disney. I have a Boston Terrier named Kash and a Pitlab named Smoke. I began working with pets when I worked for Ry the Pet Guy in Redwood City back in 2010. I previously owned and operated a pet sitting business in Alaska called Dutch Tails LLC. I looked after many dogs, many of which I took on gorgeous hikes through the tundra. I currently work for Dogtopia, a dog daycare and boarding facility in Santa Ana. I am very excited to look after your furry loved one!

Hi my name is Kevin, I'm 31, and I LOVE dogs! I used to own a French bulldog named Cera, and since she passed away, I'm not quite ready to own a new one, but I love that Wag gives me an opportunity to still spend time with dogs all while providing such a priceless service to their owners! I have turned into the 'dog walker' in my group of friends as of late. I've been walking a French Bulldog/Boston Terrier mix named Bogie, a Golden Retriever/Shepherd mix named Hauss, and a King Charles Cavalier named Kingston most recently. I work from home running my own dialogue facilitation/process design business so I've got a mostly flexible schedule to meet with your pooch!

I'm a dog lover, but my only dog right now is a 4.5 lb chihuahua who can’t walk terribly fast.

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!
