Maya on the Move

Meet Maya, DogTrekker.com's 2017 Director of Barketing™. She is a 5-year old, 70-pound English Labrador retriever recently adopted from Monterey Bay Labrador Retriever Rescue.

Maya has a quite the job filling the paw prints of her predecessor, Kayla, but we know she is up for the fun and rewarding challenge. Within a few weeks of coming to her new home, she was hanging out at the DogTrekker.com office and was on the road visiting DogTrekker.com partner destinations, attending an adoptathon, taking a DogCation® and on the trail discovering new hikes and splash zones for the site and mobile app.

Be sure to check back often on Maya's blog to see new and exciting places to have fun with dogs as well as the humans who follow!

Check out the Labs currently available for adoption from the Monterey Bay Labrador Retriever Rescue.

Lace up your hiking boots, load your pup into the car and get a grip on your leash: you’ll need it when you see how excited she’ll become upon encountering a multitude of new sights and smells in dog-friendly Mendocino County. The weather is near-perfect both along the coast, as well as inland. Remember to bring plenty of water, snacks and as always, Leave Only Paw Prints™. more »

Taken aback by prices at Napa and Sonoma hotels and wineries? Stay in Vacaville at half the price (or, just make it a day-trip) and visit nearby Suisun Valley Rustic Wine Country, a verdant Solano County agricultural region where you’ll find numerous dog-friendly wineries offering outdoor, socially distanced tasting opportunities. more »

Mendocino Wines On Your Mind?

October is prime time to pack the corkscrew, the leash and your four-legged friend for a trip up north to Mendocino County, where the vineyards are blazing with fall color and the mood everywhere is as mellow as can be. The county’s 11 diverse appellations each express a style of their own, and while you can hardly sample them all in a weekend, you can choose an itinerary along one of the county’s “wine roads.”  more »

Maya Visits Nick's Cove 2020

DogTrekker's Maya at Ruthie's Cabin, Nick's Cove

In Maya’s first trip since early March to the coast, she and her uprights stayed at Nick’s Cove in Marshall, Marin County, on beautiful Tomales Bay.

The Nick’s team has been trained in visitor protection while maintaining the guest experience they have always offered humans and pets. Everything was touchless from check-in to ordering to check-out. Staff, guests and visitors all wore face coverings during our recent stay.
 
While the Nick’s Cove Restaurant is closed inside, the outside dining area along the pier is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, having a cocktail as the sun goes down or watching the kids and dogs frolic in the bay. more »

Meet Maya, New Director of Barketing™

Meet Maya, New Director of Barketing™

By Roxanne & Dave Kendrick, Co-founders of DogTrekker.com

The story of Kayla, DogTrekker.com’s late and much missed Director of Barketing, was one of the best-read newsletter stories of 2016. Thanks to all our readers who read her story and sent their best wishes. It’s been more than six months since Kayla crossed the Rainbow Bridge, and time for us to find our next furr-ever dog. We are excited to introduce her to all of you.

We raised Kayla from a puppy after getting her from a reputable breeder, some eight years before we launched DogTrekker.com. Even though we were aware of and often donated to rescue groups, we didn't know about the magnitude of the problems with over-breeding, lack of spaying and neutering, and the fact that millions of dogs were being euthanized every year in shelters. Then we met the wonderful founders and volunteers at hundreds of California shelters, rescue and adoption organizations. We witnessed their selfless work firsthand, and were enlightened.

Meet Maya, a 5-year old, 70-pound English Labrador retriever recently adopted from Monterey Bay Labrador Retriever Rescue. Maya hailed from dog-crazy Carmel and was surrendered after her owner passed away. As with any dog being rehomed, Maya came to us with some issues. She is a bit tough on the leash and very nervous when riding in the car—not the best situation for a company and family constantly on the road. On the flip side, she gets along great with dogs large and small, dog people and not, even in uniforms. She doesn’t bark excessively and doesn’t beg for food, which isn’t very “Lab-like” at all.
 
Maya, the Director of Barketing at home
First night at home!
When Judy Kreger, Founder and CEO of Monterey Bay Lab Rescue, sent us pictures of Maya, we were a bit hesitant—older but not that old? Large but not too large? Car anxiety? Leash issues? But something in her eyes—it’s always in the eyes—spoke to both of us. Everything else, we knew, could be handled with training. So we decided to take a trip to Maya’s foster home in Santa Cruz, and it was love at first sight. We left shortly after and brought Maya to her new home. more »
