“Dog lover available every day of the week!”
I have a lot of experience with many kinds of dogs after working in a pet store as well as owning my own dogs. I walk my 2 year old lab twice a day for around a mile. I am always home and available for you and your fur babies needs. I hope you'll give me the opportunity to help your dogs get the exercise they love and need!
I am a qualified dog walker because I have experience with my own shi tzu, and I am very passionate about dog walking and caring for pets in general. I am more than willing to walk your dog in any weather that you are comfortable allowing your dog to be walked in. I am very flexible and will walk your dog at any time of day and for how ever long you would like.

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!
A lush green area, Pine Canyon is home to one of the best parks in the area, Orcutt Community Park. This dog park is loved by dogs and their owners alike. It is extremely well-maintained by park rangers and visitors. It has a beautiful view of the city from the top of the hill. Like other dog parks, it is separated according to dog size. Furthermore, dogs and owners that love physical activity will love this dog park because of its many trails and routes. This is the perfect park to take your dog after a lovely brunch in the city.
Central Santa Maria is home to one of the most fun dog parks in the city, WOOF Pac Off-Leash Dog Park in Santa Maria. This dog park is nothing short of doggie heaven. WOOF stands for ‘Winners Of Off-Leash Freedom’, an acronym created when community members lobbied the city for the dog park they wanted. The park has a great deal of grass, open spaces and fresh water. It is also split into zones depending on your dog’s size and temperament. Since this is a very well-known park, it is wise to walk your dog on a leash through the park before you let them run free.
What makes Waller Park wonderful is that it not only welcomes your family pets like your dogs but it is also home to animals such as ducks and geese. The park can get extremely busy on the weekends, so make sure your loyal companion is on a leash. The park is a wonderful mixture of well-maintained gardens, manicured grassy areas, play areas and two dog parks. If your dog loves playing outside you have to take them to Waller Park! They will be able to chase squirrels and run around until they are too tired to run anymore. Both of you will have a pawtastic time!
Only 8 miles from Santa Maria you will find the city of Nipomo, home to Nipomo Regional Park. Although this is not just a park for dogs, it is one of the best places in the area you can take your dog to. The park has an incredible amount of space for dogs to play and run. It also has a large number of benches and chairs for dog owners. In addition, the park has many watering spots specifically for dogs! Just make sure you walk your dog on a leash first because it is a large park and it is easy to get lost.
If you feel like you’re due for some away from your city, drive 30 miles to the city of Lompoc. Here you will find the city’s most famous dog park, Barkin Park. The park has two enclosed areas -- one for small dogs and the other for large dogs. Unlike other dog parks, Barkin Park has a large number of toys available for everyone to use for free! In addition to toys, it has other amenities such as benches, bathrooms and cleaning tools. Because it is such a well-known park, many owners bring their dogs here to socialize with others.
