Hi! My name is Allie. I am majoring in child development. I love working with children and animals. I live in an apartment complex that does not allow dogs, so I would like to be able to interact with them in any way possible. If this means helping you out, well, that’s just icing on the pupcake.

I have over 10 years with various animals and would to meet and walk or watch your dogs or check on your pets in your home. A little about me:I am an Air Force veteran who decided to become a pilot after I left the military. Currently I am finishing my bachelors degree (one class left!), adding to my two associates degrees (Culinary Arts and Aviation). Part of the reason I am looking to be a dog walker/sitter, besides just loving animals, is that I recently left a higher paying job in order to join my dream aviation field with the Forest Service. I was lucky to get hired into their Fire & Aviation Department and am on track to be a wild-land firefighter and, eventually, an airplane pilot in fire suppressing aircraft. While I already have my helicopter licenses, I am currently working on my fixed-wing licenses and need extra funds to build hours. Plus, taking pups out on walks will help me stay in shape for fire season. Soooooo, hopefully we can help each other out and my dogs can make friends as a bonus :)

My own fur baby is a mini schnauzer, Abby, who I've had since puppyhood. She does not know she is mini and was determined to be my guard dog, so I learned a lot about dogs while properly socializing her for the dogpark and public walks. I have also done walking and sitting for friends and family. As a fellow pet parent know that each furbaby has their own adorable quirks and every home has its own order. I try to pay attention to the details so that your best friend is well cared for and your home feels just as it always has.

I treat every new dog as a wonderful adventure in getting to know them and their preferences. That also includes the relationship they have with their owners. In other words, I'm all about customized care! I am energetic, thoughtful, and observant. When I'm doing work with dogs, whether pet sitting or walking dogs, it doesn't even feel like a job to me; I'm amazed I'm getting paid to do something so fun! I have a lifetime of experience caring for animals, both domestic and wild, and am very flexible with my schedule to accommodate the dog's needs. My special skills include ability to give medical treatments based on my past work in veterinary clinics and being willing to do silly and messy fun things like charge into a river with them.

Dog Walking in Newburg

Newburg was originally built as a logging town by the Eel River Lumber Company in the late 1800s. Today, the company no longer exists, but the part of the city of Fortuna named Newburg survives as a small neighborhood or locality within it.  

Newburg Park is a dog-friendly former pastureland of 18.5 acres that contains several baseball, softball and soccer fields, along with a playground for the humans and an all-weather walking path for the humans to stroll with their families and fur-pups. Planted with mature shade trees and grass, the path meanders around the perimeter and through the park, providing an opportunity for Fido to socialize with other leashed dogs. The grassy areas are perfect for a blanket and a picnic or a book and a snooze, with your fur-pup by your side, and there is also a picnic area with tables for more upright dining. For the humans’ convenience, the park contains restrooms where they can get some water for the pooch, too! Perfectly pawsome!

If your pup becomes ill or injured in Newburg, there are at least 4 veterinarians in Fortuna, less than 2 miles from Newburg, plus one in nearby Ferndale. They are available to get your fur-buddy up and wagging again in no time! Arf!

Newburg is home to the Roehner Park Forest, a swath of land donated for the preservation of the giant redwoods that lie within it. The park features almost 2 miles of trails where you and your doggo are sure to enjoy the well-maintained forest floor surface and the views of the massive redwoods towering over you as you pass beneath them. If you happen to look down, you’ll also find a rich undergrowth of shrubs and herbs, and the pup might just detect some small mammals hiding among the ferns. Wooden benches appear periodically for some rest and to take in the peaceful quiet and fragrance of this deep forest tract.  You and Fido won’t want to leave this barktiful place!

This neighborhood in nearby Eureka is where you’ll find the Headwaters Forest Reserve, about 7,500 acres of conserved redwood forest that also features lush undergrowth of shrubs and ferns. Originally owned by the Pacific Lumber Company, it’s now a dog-friendly park with 2 trails through the redwoods: Elk River Trail and the Salmon Pass Trail. Your fur-pup must be under voice control or on a leash and is only allowed on the Elk River Trail because of the sensitive ecology on the Salmon Pass Trail. Endangered species that you may spy on your walk with Fido include the spotted owl and the seabird called the marbled murrelet, both of which make their homes on the large redwood branches high above. This is a lovely 3-mile out-and-back walk that connects with a loop. Fido will love the pawrrific sights, sounds and scents!

The Cutten neighborhood of Eureka is home to Redwood Fields, a public park that features fields for softball, baseball and football for the kids, and walking trails for the family pupsters. This is a woofderful place to socialize your pooch as many people bring their dogs to romp on the greenways, off leash. Be aware that there are no fences, however, and when the fields are in use, excitable or reactive dogs should be leashed. With restrooms and water fountains provided, this is a pawrfect place to exercise the fur-pup while the family enjoys watching Junior play football or baseball!

Lying on the edge of the Fortuna City Center is Table Bluff County Park Beach, located within the Mike Thompson Wildlife Area, that provides access to the beautiful and fierce Humboldt Bay. This dog-friendly beach features hiking trails on the bluff along the wave slope, and you will often see hang gliders launching from some of the higher bluffs toward the bay. Your fur-pup must be leashed during the nesting season (Mar 1st to Sept 15th) of the endangered piping plover that makes this his home, and on unleashed voice control at other times. Typical northwest succulents are scattered along the bluffs and on the wave slope, and there are picnic tables with grills for that fresh air meal you will be sharing with your pooch. Arf! Also in the city center neighborhood is the pawtastic Fortuna Dog Park, which features 2 separate areas for large and small dogs, water buckets and bowls, and toys. For the humans’ enjoyment and comfort, there are shade trees and lovely flower plantings.

Ferndale, about 9 miles from Newburg, is home to the Centerville Beach County Park, a doggo’s haven for romping and cavorting at the water’s edge. Here, dogs can run off-leash everywhere from October through February, and are limited to the wave slope the rest of the year. If the tide is out, the walkable beach extends to about 5 miles. You and your pup might encounter ATVs and people on horseback on this beach, so be sure to watch out for them. Parking is free, and the park provides rest rooms where you can get drinking water for your pooch, too. If you’re from away but staying in Ferndale overnight, The Shaw House Inn is just the spot. They offer pet friendly rooms for a small additional fee, and other amenities include free breakfast and WiFi, along with family rooms and cable TV. A pawsome place to overnight with your fur-baby!
