“STOP, TLC and more for FREE!”

Hi I am Sharon, I am here to help you with your furry friend. I became a Wag walker/sitter July 2018 & many years of volunteer work with dogs & cats. I was a RN for 30 years & since I retired I am able to do the next thing I love, care for & help animals. Being a nurse has come in handy too due to my observation skills & ability to recognize unusual behaviors. I let pet parents know anything I see & take pictures for you. Can't wait to walk your furbaby and help with anything else you need done.

“All dogs are good dogs!”

I am a dog owner and experienced care giver, and have been a walker for a while now. I try to be as loving and patient with each dog I meet as I am with my own dog, while being firm when needed. I'm willing to go as fast or as slow as dogs want or need, while encouraging exercise and healthy habits in the dogs I walk/run with. I am a dog love at heart and always will be!

Hi, my name is Gillian! I am originally from San Diego and am currently studying at UCSB! At home in San Diego, I have two long haired dachshunds, Daphne and Belle. I grew up watching them when my mom went out of town and also dog sitting for neighbors and family friends. I love dogs with all my heart but am not currently allowed to have any in my apartment, so I feel that Wag is the perfect way to show love to some awesome pooches!

My love and passion for animals were inspired before I could speak: as a toddler, I would spend hours trying to communicate and play with Kasha, my aunt's 150 lb Akita. By the time I could walk and talk, family outings would regularly entail trips to nearby pet stores, shelters, adoption events, and of course- I stopped for every animal I passed along the way! Over the years, I've cared for hermit crabs, fish, hamsters, lizards, birds, cats, and canines. I've always had a profound appreciation and respect for the natural world as well as everything in it, but dogs have consistently held a special place in my life and in my heart. I had the opportunity to take home two of my own pups when I was about 6 years old: Britney, a Pekingese, and Charlie, a Shitzu. When I left for college, I lived on my own for about a year when I met and fell in love with Harley, a 90 lb German Aussie Golden mix. After independently rescuing and rehabilitating Harley, I worked extensively with a private trainer and was eventually able to get him service certified. Being such a hardcore animal kid, I took my responsibilities very seriously, and have continued to do so. Over the years, I've read dozens of books on dog training, discipline, and communication. I've also helped family and friends with dog sitting, training, walking, and other canine-related needs; this has allowed me to become comfortable working with various breeds- small, large, and everything in between! I can't wait to connect with and care for your furry family member :)

Dog Walking in Carpinteria

The city of Carpinteria, California sits on the southeast side of Santa Barbara County in California. It acquired its name from the Spanish settlers who came to this coastal land and saw the Native Americans making canoes. The settlers decided to call this place La Carpinteria, which means the "carpenter shop" in Spanish.

This city has a beautiful view of the ocean and is home to a dog-friendly beach as well as several eateries that welcome dogs to dine with you. 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.

The shoreline has quite a few rocks along it, which provide a makeshift barrier for the dogs. The beach provides waste bags and trash receptacles near the entrance. Be sure to bring plenty of water and a towel to dry yourself and your pooch with. Grab your umbrella for shade and head over to this fantastic beach!
