“Pup's Best Friend”

Hi! I'm Jen. I'm not a dog owner, but I have spent a great deal of time taking care of family and friends' dogs and cats. I love being around dogs and enjoy pampering them like going out for walks, playing in the park, giving them baths, brushing their hair and even their teeth. I'm also a pretty active person, as I exercise at least 3 times a week doing tai chi or walking. I hope to earn your trust and confidence in taking care of your fur-baby! Mahalo.

“Your pup(s) will have fun on their walks with me!”

Aloha! My name is Norma! I’ve owned large breed dogs all my life; Akitas, Doberman Pinschers, Pit/terrier mixes, Aussies. More recently, our pups were two small Jack Russell terriers. Our current ‘kids’ are a Ridgeback hound mix and a small poi pup. I’m hoping to meet and walk more pups that need exercise and mental stimulation!

“vibrant and energetic dog walker and sitter”

I am looking forward to meeting you and your dogs. As someone who has walked, played with, and house sat for both puppies and older dogs, I enjoy meeting pets of all breeds, shapes, and sizes. I am able to do short walks around the block, trips to dog parks, can organize play sessions, or even coordinate play times with other dogs if needed. I hope to meet you and your lovely pet soon.

I'm Julio, aloha!I've been surrounded by dogs all my life. As a baby in California, there was Barbara, a Terrier/Lab mix. Growing up in Maine, there was (in this order): Katie, Abigail, and Tabitha. My chores included feeding, walking, and cleaning up after them. All three were German Shepherds, a breed that my parents were and still are big fans of today. And, at my grandparents there was Bear and Kizzy, both a mix of Shitzu and Yorkshire Terrier.In my first apartment away from home, I lived with roommates who had a Boxer named Miranda. I enjoyed walking and spending time with her whenever I could until I moved.Consequently, all of these dogs were just a warmup for a Boxer named Emmy. A total sweetheart, I like to say she was my first love. She belonged to a friend who worked nearby. He was busy with his new job and I had nothing but free time so I ended up dog-sitting her as much as possible and absolutely loved every minute of it.Now I live in Hawaii and I would like to have these furry friends back in my life! I don't currently live in a place that allows dogs so I like to pay a visit to the Hawaii Humane Society when I can.I'm an avid runner, high energy, and like to stay very active. I believe exercise is good for dogs just as it is for humans! In the Chinese zodiac, I was born in a Year of the Dog (1982) and like dogs, I too like to think I'm fiercely loyal, trustworthy, and dependable.I look forward to taking good care of your furry best friend!Mahalo!

Dog Walking in Kaaawa

Ka’a’awa is a community located in the Windward District of Oahu. For the most part, it stretches along a narrow section of the coast. The Ka’a’awa Valley heads inland and is home to Kualoa Ranch, a popular movie filming spot. The ocean breezes, sweet smell of plumeria, and sandy beaches make this small town pupperific.

No trip to Ka’a’awa is complete without spending some time on the beach. Fur-tunately, Kalae'O'io Beach Park allows leashed four legged visitors. Although it’s a small beach, Kalae’O’io provides a pawsome place to soak in the sun and let your pooch splash in the surf. There are a couple picnic tables available, so bring your lunch and hang out for a while.

The Makaua Falls Trail is for the adventure seekers. It is only a mile or so, but this trail will definitely challenge you and your furry hiking buddy. You’ll have to climb some boulders and make your way through some streams and ponds. But you’ll also be smack dab in the middle of a tropical forest and enjoying all the beauty that comes with it. The rocks may be slippery, so watch your dog closely. Also, this hike shouldn’t be attempted after a heavy rainfall. Keep your eyes open for wild guava, frogs, and lots of fish.

While visiting Ka’a’awa, be sure to schedule time for Ahupua’a ‘O Kahana State Park. Your four legged friend will love spending time in this beautiful state park. Not only will she be among lush vegetation, she’ll also see a couple Hawaiian cultural sites. Clip on her leash and follow the Kapa’ele’ele Ko’a and Keaniani Lookout Trail. This one mile loop trail offers amazing views of Kahana Bay. If you want something a little bit longer, head out on the Nakoa Trail. Hike 2.5 miles through a tropical rainforest and koa trees. If you come at the right time, you may be able to pick some wild fruit.

If your pup wants some fun in the sun, grab his leash and head over to Ka’a’awa Beach Park. This local beach has soft sand and crystal clear water. It is also a pup-ular place for camping and catching octopus. But if your furry friend isn’t much of a fisherman, don’t worry, he can splash around in the cool ocean waves. Walk along the surf and let your pup get in some cardio while you enjoy the views of the nearby valleys and mountains. After your walk, throw a towel down on the sand, or set up a chair on one of the grassy patches and let the afternoon go by.

Just a few miles down the coast from Ka’a’awa is the Kualoa Regional Park. Located in Kaneohe, this peaceful park is rarely crowded. Dogs are allowed below the high tide line, so you can walk your pooch right on the water’s edge. As you look out into the ocean, you’ll get great views of Mokoli’i, a small island just off the coast. Since the park sits at the base of the Ko’olau Mountains, you’ll also have beautiful land scenery. A large grassy area and palm trees provide a pawsome place to picnic. No bones about it, this park is one to write home about.

Looking for a new place to hike with your pooch? Check out the Pu‘u Mā‘eli‘eli Trail in Temple Valley. This trail is located 10 miles south of Ka’a’awa in Āhuimanu. Lace up your boots, pack some water, leash up your pup, and head over to this trail for a pupperific hike. The well-worn  path takes you up a hillside to a scenic overlook of the Kāneʻohe Bay. You’ll pass a couple World War II bunkers, so your canine companion will even get in a little history lesson. The whole hike is around 1.5 miles, but if your pal needs more mileage, there’s a side trail that leads to the He‘eia State Park.

Next time your canine companion needs some time out in nature, take a trip 17 miles south of Ka’a’awa to Kaneohe, and head up the Likeke Falls Trail. He’ll love getting his paws muddy while making his way up the trail to the beautiful waterfall. Make sure you’re up for some adventure; you’ll have to climb over some large branches and wet mossy rocks. The canopy of trees will make your pooch feel like he’s exploring a far off jungle. The hike is about four miles round trip, so bring enough water to keep your pup hydrated in the humidity.
