Hi I'm Jacqueline! I grew up in an animal loving home with many different dogs growing up. To name a few we had Spot, a German shorthair pointer, Bishop a basset hound Boston terrier mix, and Dopey a Basset Hound. In addition to my experience with my own dogs, I have also dog sat and walked neighbors dogs, and family and friends dogs as well! I have experience with dogs of all sizes and ages! I love meeting new dogs and they always click with me right away, because I am welcoming and patient. I treat every dog as my own, and shower them with lots of love and attention. I will be sure to make your Wag! Experience as favorable as possible!

Hi! My name is Emily, I grew up on the Central Coast and have lived in Fullerton the last four years for school. Growing up in a rural area I've had experience helping first hand with rescues at the Santa Maria Animal Shelter, and also worked for a shearing company where I cared for every type of farm animal from alpacas to ostriches. My home was and still his an open door for animals in need. Dogs were and still are a huge part of my life. Running my own pet sitting business, I have experience working with dogs like a Bernese Mountain Dog with separation anxiety to geriatric Bulldogs who required specific medical attention. Besides being professional and attentive, I'm very excited to be with your fury friend for the best part of their day (besides feeding time, of course).

Dog Walking in Santa Maria

Santa Maria, California has tons of pet-friendly attractions – probably because of the 50,000 pets that live in the area! Who doesn’t enjoy soaking up the sun near the ocean along with their four-legged best friend?

If you’re coming from out of town (maybe nearby Santa Barbera or San Luis Obispo?) and need a place to stay in the area, several options are available. The Motel 6 welcomes pets, and it’s only fifteen minutes away from the beach. In addition, Holiday Inn & Suites, close to both the airport and canyon trails, offers extended-stay options for travelers and pets, with no size restriction. Another extended-stay hotel, Candlewood Suites, allows two dogs up to 80 pounds each.

A renowned park in the area is the WOOF (Winners of Off-Leash Freedom) Pac Park. Open from dawn to dusk, this park has separate areas for large and small dogs, as well as fresh water and a wash station. Locals love the abundance of grass and the lack of gravel, and the convenient location.

As for dining options, check out The Natural Café, which specializes in fresh options and vegetarian/vegan dishes. Leashed dogs are welcome on the outside patio. Or, try Maya Restaurant, a Mexican restaurant with exceptionally dog-friendly service. It’s clear to see that Santa Maria has gone to the dogs!
