“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.

I’m a devoted dog person. I love the bond between people and dogs; it’s an amazing gift. I have volunteered with a local rescue and learned humane, positive and loving techniques to socialize pups so they can find their forever homes. I have adopted three rescues, each with behavioral problems. If your dog is reactive, I have techniques to manage her walk and keep her safe, calm and secure. I’ll give your best friend the best attention!

As child, we always had dogs in our family. I always enjoyed walking and taking care of them. I don't have a dog now and I miss it. I would enjoy walking other people's dogs. Dogs seem to know that I like them and they seem to like me.

Dog Walking in Marina

Marina got its first post office in 1916, but the town wasn’t officially incorporated until 1975. Since then, Marina has only grown, becoming a town that focuses on community activity and leaves plenty of room for dogs. There are two vets in Marina, and many more in the county. 

Start your exploration of Marina with a stop at a dog friendly eatery. Wild Thyme is puntastic and pawsome, and bills itself as carrying east coast favorites with west coast sensibilities. Organic, fresh, local produce makes these dishes a treat, plus they serve up homemade dog biscuits for canine diners!

You can’t come to Marina and not visit the Fort Ord State Park. There are a variety of trails, one of the most popular being a 4 mile out and back trail that takes you along the coastline to Monterey Bay. Dogs are welcome in the park so long as they remain on leash.

If you don’t mind paying a pet fee, you can sleep in Marina’s Sanctuary Beach Resort! If you prefer not paying a pet fee, you still don’t have to sleep ruff: Motel 6 Marina welcomes dogs without a fee. 

From the beautiful views to the delicious food, Marina is a paradise for dogs and people!

The Marina Dunes Preserve in Marina Station is a gorgeous way to get away from it all. Leash up your dog and head into this natural park that ends in the Pacific Ocean. Walk protected dunes, enjoy the surf and sun, and keep your eyes peeled for native succulents and wildlife! There are also some hiking trails (start at the North Entrance parking lot!) in the area. Most clock in at three miles, though some are shorter. Most people settle for a walk on the beach, though! Bring your own supplies, as this beach doesn’t offer drinking fountains and the sun can be relentless.

The Glorya Jean Tate Park is a great family park. Your dog will love exploring the open fields and the sports fields when they’re not in use. Kids will love the playground. The picnic areas are enough to inspire a wagging tail in humans and dogs alike! Dogs should be leashed in the park. Glorya Jean Tate Park is also often home to community events and fundraisers. Keep your eye on the crowds if there’s one going on, as shy dogs may find a busy weekend day overwhelming. Social dogs, on the other hand, will love all the activity! The park is large enough to make walking the perimeter a good walk.

Central Marina has two great parks within blocks of each other. Start with the smaller park, Vince DiMaggio Park. If you want to be able to walk your dog and tire out your kids on the playground, this is the park for you. It has winding, walking paths through the trees in addition to open sports fields and a playground. For more room, the much larger Locke-Paddon Park is your best bet. The park features a large pond, complete with ducks! It focuses on preserving native Marina plants and grasses. Take your dog for a leisurely sunset stroll to get the full effect!

The Marina Dog Park is located inside of Schoonover Park, and a pawtastic place to take your pup! While Schoonover Park is nice, grassy, and has walking trails for leashed dogs, it would be a rare pup who preferred it over the off leash bliss of Marina Dog Park. Once you’re inside, you can put your dog into the right size section, as they have separate areas for large and small dogs. Off leash play lets dogs romp and socialize, and Marina Dog Park is a happening spot! Go early if you want to avoid a crowd. Bring your own water and bowl for your dog, but doggie bags are provided if you run out.

The Salinas River National Wildlife Refuge is a must-see destination if you’re in Marina! Pack up the car for the just seven minute drive to the outskirts of Salinas. This wildlife refuge is over 365 acres of crucial, protected wetlands. You can enjoy a walk along pristine coastlines with your dog at your side. As tempting as it is to let them roam free, dogs must be leashed at all times in the refuge. It wouldn’t do to have them chasing protected wildlife! Even on leash, there’s plenty to see and sniff to keep your dog occupied! Pack your own water and bowl, because the wilderness doesn’t have drinking fountains!
