“Let’s go for a walk!”

My name is Julie and I recently moved to LA from NYC! I have a lifetime of experience caring for dogs. When I first came to CA, I dog sat my way through the state which was a wonderful way to learn different areas and get to meet some great furry friends in the process! Now that I’m settled in LA, I would love to continue taking care of pups. I was a volunteer and foster mom for It’s Ruff Without a Roof, and cared for many rescues in my home. I love to explore, hike, travel, and teach yoga.

Dog Walking in Carmel Valley

The city of Carmel Valley, California got its name from two brothers, Byington and Tirey Ford, who established the Carmel Valley Village and the Airway Market. The Airway Market was the first general store in this city, although it had more to offer than a regular general store. It included a beauty shop, a liquor store, a drug store, and a soda fountain.

Carmel Valley is a great place to be if you want to be close to a lot of dog-friendly attractions. There are several restaurants where you and your pooch can enjoy a meal together. These restaurants serve a variety of cuisines and several of them have saloon or beer gardens where they serve signature beers and wines. All of these establishments have outdoor seating, which provides the perfect atmosphere for you and your furry friend to grab a bite to eat together and bond over your meal.

Carmel Valley also has a trail and park that you and your pooch will enjoy. This city does not have a lot of other amenities for dogs, but you will find many more dog-friendly spaces, such as restaurants, dog parks, beaches and trails, just a short drive away from this city.

If you and your pooch enjoy hiking, you've come to the right place! The Garland Ranch Park is a great place for you and your canine pal to enjoy walking on trails and being immersed in nature.

Your will love the different terrain to explore; you'll walk over hills and through some canyons, and you can also marvel at large rock formations. The best part? Your pal can even cool off in the river! But the river can be unpredictable, so keep a close eye on your pup. You will want to pack the essentials, such as extra water, supplies for cleaning up, and a snack in case you or your furry friend gets hungry. Put on your hiking shoes and see how much of this beautiful park you can explore!
