“Give every puppo a hug and a squeeze”

After close to 600 walks for canine clients, I've gained much confidence and experience to care for all kinds of puppos. Today I am a proud momma to a German Shepherd mix I adopted, and we're so happy together. Dogs are wonderful creatures. I often feel like we don't deserve such loyalty and undying affection. For all they do for us, I like to give back and remind them how much they are loved and appreciated.

Hi, I'm Sarah! I'm studying early childhood development. I came home after four years of traveling to my childhood home to see my parents... and our three dogs allocated to a small dusty corner of the house. They were neglected, unsocialized, ridden with fleas and toxins, overweight, and unhappy. My heart couldn't take the scene. Ever since then we have been building a routine and our best life. My mission is to advocate for our furry friends and to give as many as I can my love!

Hi, my name is Brett and I'm looking forward to meeting your pup! Dogs bring the greatest joy to my life and I can never get enough. I have been the proud owner/human of two dogs in the past and believe they have been a key in living a happy life. Meeting a new dog is the high point in my day, especially knowing I get to play and satisfy them. I work in a customer service job so it's always nice to change to a species that really appreciates the simple things. Our best friends deserve nothing but the best!

“I love and care for dogs like mine own.”

Hiya! I am a college student/nanny who believes she still has to much time on her hands! I love pets and especially dogs. but unfortunately I can not have one due to some relatives being allergic. So to fill the void of wanting a dog I figure walking and playing with other people dogs would be the next best thing! I do have experience playing and walking dogs Even though i do not have one. I tend to take my cousins dogs out often.

Dog Walking in Moss Landing

Moss Landing is a section of Watsonville in a beautiful, pet-friendly spot on California’s Monterey Bay. It lies at the mouth of Elkhorn Slough, a large wetland. Once a busy whaling town, Moss Landing now is home to 2 marine research facilities and a power plant. Tourism thrives here, too, partly because of Elkhorn Slough’s reputation as a prime birding spot and pristine state beaches, as well as the population of sea otters in the harbor. It is also the port for many pleasure and working fishing boats, and boasts antique and other shops to tempt the shopper.

The harbor and beaches of Monterey Bay are defining features of Moss Landing. There are several dog-friendly beaches, including Moss Landing Beach, which even has an area for off-leash dogs. It is adjacent to the Moss Landing State Beach, which doesn’t allow dogs, so be sure to watch for signs.  

There is also a dog-friendly KOA campground nearby where your pup is welcome on leash outside your vehicle. It features electricity, cable TV and Wi-Fi (for a small additional fee), laundry and restrooms. It’s in a perfect spot to serve as base camp for your excursions with your furry bestie in and around Moss Landing.

If your pup should need medical attention for illness or injury while in the Moss Landing Area, there are at least 4 veterinarians or animal hospitals in nearby Pacifica and Half Moon Bay.

With pawsome beach access, and furrific amenities, Moss Landing is sure to please your pup!

The harbor area of Moss Landing is known for its boutiques and antique shops, but is truly famous for Phil’s Fish Market, thought by some to be the best seafood restaurant in the area. It’s dog friendly too, with tables near the water so not only can you enjoy the company of your pooch, but the beautiful view as well. Phil’s pairs seafood with pasta and other scrumptious sides. If you’re a seafood lover, you’ll want to keep coming back to this casual eatery with Fido. For anyone not in love with fish, they also offer grilled cheese, and chicken nuggets or filets. Pick up some of Phil's frozen entrees to take home and prepare yourself, or have them shipped anywhere in the US! Bone appetit!

This Watsonville neighborhood just northeast of Moss Landing is host to the dog-friendly Watsonville Slough National Wildlife Refuge and Trail System. This wildlife sanctuary provides a perfect environment for leisurely walks with Fido, viewing birds and looking out for sea otters and harbor seals as they meander through the slough in search of food. There are many protected species in residence here, or passing through on their migratory journeys, including the endangered White Plover. The contrast of the waters in the slough with the red-tipped picklewood, along with views of the mountains and walks beside strawberry fields make this a paradise for nature lovers and their furry besties. Pawsome!

This neighborhood in the city of Marina sits 10 miles south of Moss Landing and hosts the Marina (Schoonover) Dog Park. Fully fenced with a separate area for small dogs, the park features convenient waste-scooping tools and receptacles, plus water bowls. There is no water provided, so be sure to bring a gallon or so for the pups to share. The doggy play areas are grassy and wide open (the park having been a ball field in a past life) so there is plenty of room for free-style carousing, running at full speed, fetch and other doggy-games!  If you and your tired doggy come away from the park hungry, stop in at Wild Thyme Deli and Café, which features a patio just made for a bite and beverage with your furry bestie. Sandwiches are the stars of the menu, and Fido can munch on one of their homemade dog biscuits while you enjoy your meal.

The La Selva Beach neighborhood of Watsonville is a short 9 miles from Moss Landing and home to dog-friendly Manresa State Beach. This flat expanse of beach is protected by sand dunes, and offers views of mountains to the north, and forests to the south. It allows dogs both on the beach and in the surrounding green park area if the pooches are leashed. The park beyond the dunes features a dog-friendly campground for tent camping, and the beach is perfect for surf-fishing with your bestie by your side. Picnic sites dot the bluff on top of the dunes, offering ocean views and appetite-producing sea air. Bring Fido to this great little park on San Andreas Road – there is plenty of room for walks on the beach or just relaxing on a blanket in the sun. Pawrrific!

Watsonville has invested in several recreational parks, and one of the most dog-friendly in town is Martin J. Franich Park, which features baseball fields, BBQ facilities and picnic areas, and a great dog park! The dog park sits between 2 baseball fields, instead off in a corner as in so many parks, so you and your fur-pup can feel part of the community. The park provides separate large and small dog sections with double safety gates, convenient waste bags, and receptacles placed both inside the dog play area and around the perimeter of the entire park, which you can also walk your pup on leash. No one will get too thirsty, because water fountains are provided, and there are shady spots where you can pull up a lawn chair and relax. If you didn’t bring a lawn chair, you can use one of the benches provided or a plastic chair left behind by another dog-lover! This is a great place for you and Fido to exercise, play catch and socialize with other dogs and humans. Woofderful!
