Dog Walking in Waterfront, Santa Barbara
Book a dog walker to give your dog a 30-minute walk around your neighborhood.
“Cheryl gave my 2 dogs vigorous walks in our neighborhood and even cleaned their muddy feet upon return for my elderly mom who was keeping them while we were away. She definitely went beyond expectations and we are so appreciative of her care and considerate manner! I loved getting the Rover Card with pics and a nicely detailed description of their walk each day.”

Although the backyard is small, there are plenty of enriching activities available for all my furry friends. For daily exercise, we venture up the street to the spacious and dog-friendly Eling's Park, which is both beautiful and super safe for dogs. Additionally, we make a daily trip to the leashed side of Hendry's Beach or one of the many local parks that are dog friendly and our favorites like Hale Park or Toro Canyon Park plus I plan other interactive and exciting outings based on the individual needs and preferences of each pet. Transportation is not a problem, as I have a dog-friendly Honda Accord equipped with harnesses, bungees, dog seat belts with bungees, and a crate for small to medium size dogs. I prioritize the safety and comfort of your pets during car rides, and the seats can easily be folded down for added space. As a trained professional in emergency first aid for pets, I am prepared for any situation that may arise. I will follow any necessary medication routines or dietary plans, and I am happy to accommodate any specific nutritional needs your pets may have. Behavioral challenges or needs will be discussed with you, and together we will create a customized plan to ensure that your pet feels comfortable and happy in my care. If there is anything else I can do to meet your pets' needs, please do not hesitate to let me know. I am always happy to provide excellent service and tailor my approach to meet the individual needs of each pet.

About: I currently have a 3 month old goldendoodle. I treat all animals as if they are my own and give them all of the love and attention as possible! I currently work at Trader Joes 3 days a week, and am enrolled in school at SBCC. My schedule is pretty flexible for the most part as most of my classes are online. I live in student apartment housing, so unfortunately I will not be able to board animals in my home. For overnight stays at clients homes, I am happy to discuss any needs of the household and go over your exceptions for my time in your space.
About: Experience with dogs and cats of all ages and breeds. A lot of experience with high-energy dogs who need a lot of exercise and patience. I currently have a lot of availability to provide care, exercise, and fun for your dog or dogs! My schedule is very flexible and can work around your availability! I have a reliable vehicle that can easily transport dogs of all sizes, a fenced yard, and a safe, quiet neighborhood great for walking dogs. My home inhabits a very friendly and socialized adult Aussiedoodle as well.
About: hello, my name is Nikolai, I have always had animals since early childhood, I love spending time with them, I always treat everyone well, I will be happy to sit with your animal I have a free time at full day, I work sometimes, but I have more free time for walk or seat with your pets . I clean up after the animals in the house and on the street, I make sure that they have water and food, I monitor the filler and diapers so that the animals feel comfortable going to the toilet
About: Raised and trained a premature puppy and took care of her till she was healthy. I also have two rescued reactive dogs and have experience with caring and adjusting to those behaviors. I love all dogs and can’t wait to take care of yours ! I also have a pet snake so I have experience caring for reptiles! That includes feedings, cage adjustments and feedings, and enrichment time! I am currently on summer vacation and have a completely open schedule. I can come mornings afternoons and at night, have the ability to stay overnight with your animals, and can make last minute stops to check in for any reason! I’m always keeping an eye out on how the dogs I’m walking are responding to their environment, if they’re nervous, curious, scared, etc and adjusting to make them feel comfortable. I am also actively trying to get their energy out before getting them back home during walks. Always giving attention and pets when they let me. For house sits, making sure there is nothing dangerous on the floors they could eat or hurt themselves with and making sure the house is in the same condition it was left in. I also do not mind bringing mail in or watering plants for those that have left their homes for multiple days!
“Leanna was great! She arrived here on time and the dogs came back tired and clearly had a great time on their walk/outing to the dog park. Extra grateful for her being available for our last minute request. We will definitely use Leanna again in the future :)”
“Alyssa is a high-energy, conscientious and responsible dog lover who enjoys getting pups into the outdoors! She has been our dog sitter on many occasions, and each time she has daily taken our dog for multiple walks, specifically taking her for long hikes into the hills surrounding our home. She has loved and cared for Rica as if she were her own dog, playing and interacting with her throughout each day. Alyssa is dependable, cheerful and timely. I can't recommend her highly enough!”

“Alicia and Max did a great job watching our dog! They allowed us to come over to see their place and meet them before we made a decision. While we were gone, they stayed in contact with us and sent pictures and videos. Our dog seemed very happy and comfortable at their home. We plan on reaching out to them for our next planned trip!”

Nicole & Ethan G.
“I have now known Nicole for several years and consider her an extremely reliable and trustworthy person. She has watched my Dog numerous times when I have gone out of town, and it gives me peace of mind knowing he is with her. Her and her Husband have a great backyard that is enclosed, which is nice knowing my dog has room to stretch his legs in addition to the times he is walked. Not to mention that they have a very nice chocolate lab Rusty, who gets a long great with my dog. My pup never seems to want to leave when I come to pick him up. I would recommend Nicole to everyone.”
“Jorrit and his family took great care while walking my pup Angel and she was always excited for her daily walks with them while I was away. It was great to see her so happy! I will definitely rebook in the future! :)”
