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!

“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.

Dog Walking in Montecito

Montecito, California is home to two of the most prolific dog lovers there are: Oprah Winfrey and Ellen Degeneres, so of course, there is plenty to do to keep both you and your beloved pets busy here! It may only have a population of around 9,000 people, but with all of the surrounding greenery, trails, as well as its proximity to the ocean, Montecito is filled with endless opportunities to explore with your pet.

Along with a handful of Montecito veterinarians, there are six dog-friendly restaurants in Montecito. Among these is Trattoria Mollie, and both dogs and their owners find the climate-controlled patio very comfortable. The delicious Italian cuisine doesn't hurt either! When you visit, be sure to keep an eye out for pictures of Oprah at Trattoria Mollie as well.

You won’t want to miss the Ennisbrook Trail in San Ysidro Creek Preserve in Montecito either; it’s a 1.85-mile loop that runs through an oak-tree wonderland, and dogs are welcome to join you on leash. During your walk, you’ll come across charming stone bridges and plenty of flowers for both you and Rover to stop and sniff. No matter how you spend your time in Montecito, you’re bound to be impressed by all of the dog-friendly activities, restaurants, parks, and beaches it has to offer!

Toro Canyon is a rugged canyon with tons of space and greenery, which makes it a super fun place for both you and your pets to explore! Toro Canyon Park consists of hiking trails, BBQ pits, gazebos and picnic tables, and even a fenced-area for off-leash dogs to play safely. The park is open from 8 AM to sunset, but any time of the day will provide you with views of the sweeping vistas and a excellent opportunity to get some exercise while you bond with your pooch. Some guests have spotted wildlife like snakes and skunks, so make sure you’re on the lookout for critters other than your own!

Montecito is made up of several luxurious neighborhoods, and Eucalyptus Hill is no exception! Much of the neighborhood features sweeping, 360-degree views of the Pacific, and Hale Park in Eucalyptus Hill is a great place to take in these views with your dog. Hale Park is made up of some steep and hilly areas, so make sure you wear comfortable shoes and pack plenty of water before heading here for a walk with your dog. While you’re enjoying your walk, you can take in the sites of the eucalyptus trees, and if you’re lucky, you might spot some of the wild parrots that inhabit the area as well.

West Mesa is a beach neighborhood on the coast of Santa Barbara, and among the many beaches in the area is Arroyo Burro Beach County Park. Often regarded as the most dog-friendly beach in the area, Arroyo Burro Beach County Park has areas for both on-leash and off-leash dogs. It also provides doggie bags, and if you’d like to give your pup a bath to get the sand off of them when they’re done playing, there’s even a coin-operated doggie wash station. Some guests note that both your dog’s feet as well as your own will get oily after walking in the sand. Despite its popularity, this beach maintains a quiet, family-friendly feel that can be so hard to find.

Overlooking Arroyo Burro Beach County Park in West Mesa lies the Douglas Family Preserve. This 70-acre area is full of hiking trails and all sorts of opportunities for sniffing up adventure! The area is surrounded by steep cliffs, so if your dog likes to run wild, it’s best to keep them on a leash at the Douglas Family Preserve. Even on-leash, you and your dog will get a pleasant walk in on the outer walking trail or among the many trails along the interior. When you’re ready for a break, you can relax and look out at the water and see if you can spot dolphins down below.

Many consider East Beach in Santa Barbara to be a hidden gem in California. This vast beach area is mostly inhabited by locals, and with so much space, it has a private and quiet feel that is often hard to find. Just a few blocks from the beach lies Kunin Winery, a dog-friendly winery and shop that was featured in the Meryl Streep hit, It's Complicated. You can enjoy shopping in the boutique without having to tie your dog up outside, because the only thing that makes shopping and wine tasting more fun is getting to do it with your best friend by your side!
