Hi! My name is Maia. My family had dogs when I was growing up, and I've been walking dogs and dog sitting for neighbors and friends for over 10 years. I've walked everything from a 3 lb Chihuahua to a 100 lb wolfhound mix. I grew up in San Luis Obispo, CA, but now live in Santa Barbara. Each day when I get home from my job as a food scientist, I go for a long walk. I'd love to enjoy the sun and fresh air with your furry friend by my side!

Hi there! I'm Erin and I'm so excited to take the best care of your best friend. My experience with dogs comes from sitting for my friends and neighbors - whenever they need someone to watch their golden retrievers while they're on vacation, I'm their first call for walking or dog sitting! I also am a dog mom myself to a rambunctious corgi puppy, so I'm well versed in training and commands as I work on that with him. Looking forward to going on walks with your pup!

All 8 dog-friendly restaurants in this city offer comfortable outdoor seating and a wide variety of cuisines as well as signature wines and beers. No matter which eatery you choose to chow down with your hound, the staff will be delighted to fuss over your furry friend and make your visit as comfortable as possible.

This relaxing coastal city has great amenities for you and your pooch and is the central location for additional activities as well. If you want to sniff out more dog-friendly places and spaces, you'll find more things to do with your pooch just a short drive away from Carpinteria.
