My name is Jolie. I got my first dog when I was five and I have never looked back. They are such great companions whether we are running in the park or watching Lassie on tv. I have taken my dogs through obedience training and one went through touch therapy training. I also have two cats because, as they say, "To keep life in proper perspective, one who has a dog to worship him should also have a cat to ignore him."

“I’m the walker you’re looking for!!!”

Hi, my name is Rachael and I am so excited to be walking your dog today! I have loved dogs all my life, but my last dog Hannah is the one who really ignited my passion. She was a rescue from the ASPCA who had been abused. It was then that I realized I wanted to help animals. I became a volunteer dog walker/trainer/mentor with the Animal Humane Society. I am also Red Cross certified in Canine CPR.

Because I was a dog in my "prior life", I have always had a dog (or 4) and have fostered sick or injured dogs and puppy litters for over 20 years. You will find that I am very mature, responsible, dependable & prompt & will always give your dog(s) lots of love. I have administered subcutaneous fluids & medications, as well as doing nail trimming. Dogs deserve to be treated with respect because they are amazing beings that are totally loyal & depend on us to protect them from harm.

“Pets First!”

I have loved and owned animals all of my life, including dogs, cats, mice and reptiles. I've read many books and watched videos on animal behavior and welfare. I have successfully performed volunteer work at animal shelters and rescue organizations, worked briefly for a groomer, and pet-sat for friends on multiple occasions. I have trained my own rescue dogs to overcome their fears by gaining their trust and leading by example as the "alpha". I will treat your dogs as if they were my own family!

“Experienced dog lover at your service!”

I have worked at animal shelters, doggie day cares and veterinary clinics, so I have a wide range of pet care knowledge. I currently work part time as a Wellness Practitioner at a Yoga & Meditation Center. I had two amazing dogs, a German Shepherd named Wiley and a Border Collie named Star (both passed). I now have two cats and we recently adopted a Golden Retriever mix named Finnegan who is training to be a service dog. Walking and caring for dogs fills my heart and is great exercise too!

Dog Walking in New River

New River is a picturesque town just north of Phoenix, Arizona. Named after a seasonal wash in the Agua Fria River system, this small town is full of history as well as stunning views of the Sonoran Desert. Back in the 1800’s, New River was home to the Wrangler Roost Stage Coach Stop. Although a resort now stands in its place, there are still ruins that show what life was like in the Old West.


Whether you and your furry friend live in New River full time or are just passing through, you can take advantage of the local pet friendly hikes. Your pup will love the views of such natural beauties as cactus gardens, desert wildflowers, and a variety of birds and wildlife. New River sits on the western border of Tonto National Forest. Fur-tunately, dogs are allowed on some trails, so be sure to check out this area.

 

While in this outdoor haven, keep your pup’s well-being and comfort in mind. Though the town only boasts one veterinary clinic, be sure to mind the Arizona heat to keep your pup from overheating. Wherever you take your canine companion, be sure to bring plenty of water and, if possible, take some breaks in the shade. Keep your pup on the trail to avoid natural hazards like cactus and rattlesnakes. And just remember- if the ground is too hot to touch, it’s too hot for your pup’s paws.

Visit Barbara’s Pet Park and experience New River’s only dog park. This pawsome spot offers space for pups to run off leash. Arizona weather is often heat, but the park helps pup beat the heat with shade structures and water fountains. There are even benches for owners to relax on while the dogs romp about. A membership is required for entry to this puptastic area. Need more outdoor adventure? Pack up your pup and head over to Lake Pleasant. Although dogs must be leashed while visiting, Lake Pleasant Regional Park offers trails ranging from a half to two miles that pups are sure to enjoy. Be sure to bring enough water to keep cool and hydrated. Lake Pleasant is also a pup-ular fishing spot. Whether you try casting a line from the shore or on a boat,  your fur baby will happily cheer you on.

The New River Road and Shangri La Lane area is home to the Daisy Mountain Trail. Although the trail is steep, the view from the top makes the climb worth it. This loop trail gains 1250 feet in elevation and clocks in at 6.8 miles, so make sure your pooch is ready for some serious exercise. Water is not available at the trailhead, so you’ll need to bring enough H2O to keep you and your pup well hydrated. If your pup isn’t in the mood for a hardcore hike, the first 1.3 miles is flat and often frequented by those seeking less of a climb.

Cave Creek Regional Park is only 15 miles southeast of New River in the rural town of Cave Creek. The park covers a staggering 2,922 acres of the Upper Sonoran Desert and has some pawsome hiking trails. Leashed pups are always welcome, so go ahead and bring your favorite four legged hiking buddy. Trails range from .2 miles all the way up to 5.8 miles and are multi-use, so you may encounter a mountain biker or horseback rider. The trails provide fetching views of the stunning desert landscape.  Be sure to bring enough water for your pooch and make sure she doesn’t overheat in the Arizona sun.

If your furry friend is itching for an outdoor adventure, grab some water and snacks and head over to Sonoran Phoenix Preserve. This natural space is located in Phoenix and is only 15 miles south of New River.  Trails range from just under a half a mile all the way up to 5.6 miles. Be sure to choose one that fits your dog’s abilities and stamina. Keep your leashed pup on the trail since you’ll be traveling through cactus country. A hurt paw is sure to dampen his spirits. You’ll also need to bring plenty of water since there is no H2O available at the trailhead.

The Deem Hills Recreation Area is 20 miles south of New River in Phoenix and is well worth the trip. Your pooch won’t want to miss a walk through this magnificent desert landscape. Keep your eyes open for snakes, lizards, birds and, of course, cactus. There are trails for all levels, but the Circumference Trail is a pupperific option if you’ve got a furry friend with a lot of energy. This trail runs 5.7 miles and circles the entire recreation area. Be sure to bring enough water to keep you and your furry friend hydrated. No doubt your pup will be ready to nap in the car on the way home.
