Introducing Ben Carter!

We are very excited to announce that GoDogz has added another excellent dog walker/runner – Ben Carter! An avid dog lover, Ben recently moved to Santa Cruz and is eager to explore all the beautiful trails with some lucky GoDogz. Want to know more? Here’s what he has to say:

I have been a lifelong athlete and dog lover making dog running a perfect combination of my passions. Running the trails of Santa Cruz reminds me of the fun I had with my first Beagle, Jessie. She loved to explore the woods around our house in my native Virginia. As a rambunctious kid I could relate to her nose to the ground pursuit of adventure. To this day I never get tired of watching the excited face of a dog about to go running.

I recently moved to the area from Shanghai, China where I was the educational director of an art school for two years. Being in the heart of a major Asian metropolis had its perks, but the lack of nature and dense population created a serious longing for forests. Santa Cruz has been a breath of fresh air with all its running trails and blue skies.

If I’m not running you can find me doing yoga or working in my pottery studio. I have been a ceramic artist for the past 15 years and opened Carter Pottery in 2004. To find out more about my ceramic career you can visit my website or visit my travel/art blog Tales of a Red Clay Rambler at
