“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!

Dog Walking in Monterey

A historic Californian coastal city, Monterey boasts a mix of urban and marine attractions, many of which are dog-friendly. From beaches and parks to dog-friendly restaurants, hotels, and seven veterinary clinics, this is a city that will definitely keep you and your pooch busy.

One of the best dog walks to be had in Monterey is the Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail. Stretching out for 18 miles, the trail will take you and your pup past some of the city's most iconic sights, including the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Fisherman's Wharf. Another pawtastic walk is at the Monterey Window on the Bay park, with a path that will take the two of you past some of the city's finest beaches, complete with plenty of shade for hot days. Just be sure to bring enough water for both you and Fido!

After all of that walking, you and your pup will no doubt be hungry, and there is a delicious array of dog-friendly restaurants in the city to choose from. If Fido is in the mood for some Spanish tapas, head to Esteban Restaurant with its beautiful patio, complete with fire pit for chilly evenings. For fine dining, specialty cocktails and a stunning view, Rocky Point is the place to go, while the London Bridge Pub is perfect for some comfort food.

With beautiful walks, sandy beaches, and delicious food, Monterey is a city that any pooch would want to visit.

Encompassing a busy stretch of coastline, the City Center/ Monterey Institute of International Studies neighborhood is the area to go to if you and Fido want to experience Monterey's marine life. Begin by taking your pup on a whale watching excursion with the Monterey Bay Whale Watch. Dogs are welcome to accompany their owners on the boats, where you will both see everything from humpback whales to killer whales to sea lions. For even more time on the water, Monterey Bay Sailing offers lessons and cruises throughout the year, seven days a week, with dogs welcome on their boats for no additional fee. Be sure to bring a lead, doggie bags and drinking water!

Providing access to a couple of different beaches, the Del Monte neighborhood is ideal for pooches who want to spend the day making the most of the sun, sand and sea. Being tucked away from the main road, Del Monte Beach is often referred to as one of the city's hidden gems, and has a boardwalk, picnic tables and fire pits. Connecting on from this is the Monterey State Beach, where you can enjoy an on-lead stroll with Fido up until you reach the Monterey Tides Hotel, after which dogs are not allowed. If you want to treat your pup to a bite to eat, head to The Market Restaurant to try some authentic Mediterranean cuisine at one of the three dog-friendly tables.

The jewel of the Naval Postgraduate School/ Sloat Ave neighborhood is El Estero Park, a green, 45 acre city park. Not only does the park have sports facilities, playgrounds, picnic areas and a paddle boat concession at their large lake, but you will also find the El Estero Dog Park here. This off-lead, fenced-in park has plenty of shade, soft mulched ground, and a separate area for smaller dogs, but be sure to bring your own doggie bags and drinking water. If you and Fido are feeling hungry after all of that exercise, there are a couple of dog-friendly restaurants in this neighborhood. The Bay Café & Cantina serves up casual American cuisine with a Mexican twist, while the Cannery Row Brewing Co. have a delicious food menu, as well as over 70 beers on tap.

There is so much history to be found in Monterey, and you and your pup can learn all about the city's heritage in the New Monterey neighborhood. Monterey's Free Walking Tours is the pawfect way to do this, as these hour-long tours, which are approximately one mile in length, will teach the two of you all about the history of Cannery Row and its surrounding areas. After all of that education, Fido will no doubt want to run around for a bit, so take him to the San Carlos Beach Park. Although dogs are not allowed on the beach itself, this 2.87 acre park boasts large grassy areas for dogs to sniff around in, as well as footpaths, picnic areas, and gorgeous views.

Rather than being focused on the coast, this neighborhood showcases Monterey's greenery. The 525 acre Jacks Peak Park can be found here, with the 1068 foot Jacks Peak rising up at the center of it. There are 8.5 miles of hiking trails for you and Fido to explore, but if you want to see the best that the park has to offer, take the 0.8 mile Skyline Self-Guided Nature Trail, which will take you along the summit of Jacks Peak. Other trails that Fido will love include the Lower Ridge Trail and the Iris Trail, and don't forget that you will need doggie bags, water and a lead no matter which trail you pick.
