Hello my name is Kaithlyn. I've grown up with animals my entire life. From bottle feeding the kittens my family rescued to providing a loving home for every animal that is part of my family. I grew up with two dogs and three cats in my entire life and it's because of them that I love being around animals. No matter if it's a stray or a friendly neighborhood animal, I would treat all of them with the respect and love as though they were mine.

“Happy dog happy life! <3”

Hi I’m Amber! I love all dogs no matter the size! I have experience with walking calm, energetic, and lead pulling pups. It’s all about keeping calm, being aware of my surroundings, and always having control of the situation. I myself am a dog owner, so that has given me experience in how to correct a dog in an assertive but loving manor. It’s important to get out in nature, but I understand you may not always be able to. So that is why I’m here to help you and your furry family member! <3

“Dog training isn’t only for dogs”

I am a graduate of the Dog Training Academy for dog trainers in San Francisco and obtained my certification. My method is through positive reinforcement and never causes pain to the dog in any way. Dogs are highly social. Although they are different, they have needs just like us and they must be met. I will show you how to achieve a balanced dog. We all want a healthy happy dog! If your dog requires it, i can help your dog get along with other dogs and people too, if you request of course.

Dog Walking in Big Bear Lake

Big Bear Lake is located in Southern California on the edge of the fish-filled Big Bear Lake. The town is known for their ski resorts, scenic downtown that is covered with gift shops and restaurants, and the rolling San Bernardino National Forest. Although it is a small city in San Bernardino County, Big Bear Lake is a fantastic spot to take your dog for a fun hike along the Alpine Pedal Path or Grand View Point Trail.

If you and your dog are more for relaxing and sun bathing, then be sure to check out Big Bear Lake Beaches or Boathouse Dog Beach, a perfect spot for Fido to run around and splash in the water and for you to grab a drink. There are six veterinary hospitals to choose from to bring your pup to, and a pet supply store, Waggin’ Tails, for all your dog’s needs.

Big Bear Lake features many cabins to relax overnight in that your dog is more than welcome to stay at. Since Big Bear Lake is a tourist area, most of the hotels and cabins located within the city welcome your dog as a guest. All Seasons Alpine Resort, Snow Summit Ski Cabins, Four Season Getaway at Big Bear, and Best Western Big Bear Chateau are just a few locations that welcomes dogs.

The trail is mainly dirt, so watch your dog’s feet, and remember to bring water with you. If you’re in search of a dog park and great food, then look no further then the Boathouse Dog Beach. This pawesome establishment welcomes dogs to join you off-leash where they can enjoy a beach bar, great food, numerous games like volleyball and horseshoes, and a boat tie if you decide to come up from the lake.
