Get to know us: Featuring Meghan

I have lived nowhere else but Costa Mesa California, and I wouldn’t change my home town for the world. California is the place to be! I am the 3rd child of 4 and I come from a big family, which is very important to me. My younger sister is my best friend, my older siblings […]

Get to Know us: Featuring Steph

Hi y’all! If you haven’t met me in person yet, I’m the loud one in the group. I’ve been working for Shar for almost a year and have truly found a passion in working with dogs. Before Sea Spot Walk I was with Starbucks for nine years. I finally decided it was time for a […]

Get to Know us: Featuring Amy

I’m sure you could have guessed this, but I am a major animal lover! I was always that young child bringing home stray animals to my mother and leaving out fresh food and water for the homeless babies in our neighborhood. My most recent rescue is my cat Tiny who is the apple of my […]

Nervous Dog, A conversation with Certified Obedience Trainer, Jamie

Jamie: One of the dogs that I have been working with is a gorgeous little Pom-Chi mix, just a little petite thing. She is very nervous and very shy. She is a rescue dog, and her owners have only had her for a few months, so we don’t know much about her history. Very often, […]

I majored in Painting and Photography in college, and I have shown my paintings in several art exhibits over the years. In my last year […]

Throw Back- To the time I visited Wolf Mountain Sanctuary

  Before I opened Sea Spot Walk, I had an opportunity to visit Wolf Mountain Sanctuary. What a unique experience! These majestic animals are so much more beautiful (and intimidating!) in person.     After feeding the wolves raw chicken, they let us go into the greeting area with one of their friendliest wolves to […]

The Inspiration for Starting Sea Spot Walk – An Anniversary Post

  I began staying overnight with Quincy whenever his human would go out of town. At the time, I was working full time as a Credit and Collections Clerk with an Air Conditioning Supply company- and hating every minute. Staying with Quincy made me realize how much I adore animals, and how much happier I […]

Let’s Talk Leashes

As a Dog Walker, people frequently ask what kind of leash I recommend.  There are several factors to consider when choosing a leash. First off- does your dog like to chew? Then AVOID leather leashes at all costs! I spent about $40 on a really beautiful leather leash when I first opened Sea Spot Walk, […]
