“My best friends have 4 paws ”

Hi, I'm Lyric. I'm a life-long Bay Area resident, and dog lover. I live in San Jose with my dog (and best friend) Boomer. I have many years of dog care under my belt, from puppy to senior, including special needs dogs. I have experience with many breeds, and know how to handle high-energy dogs. I love meeting new dogs and getting to know their charming (and often hilarious) personalities. Our dogs aren't pets, they are family, and you can count on me to treat them that way.

Hi My name is Patrick, I grew up in the Bay Area and I have been a dog lover my whole life. Growing up I had many dogs, Big and Small. To me playing with dogs never gets old. Running around the yard with them, belly rubs, tug of wars I love to do it all. I've always had a connection with dogs and my mom likes to call me the Dog Whisperer since dogs tend to calm down and behave more often in my presence. I like to get outside and enjoy the daytime and I'd love to bring your pup companion with me while your away.

Hello my name is Nolan and I've had dogs for most of my life, 7 to be exact. At one point I was living with 4 dogs. 3 of which were smaller and the 4th a medium sized golden doodle. So I'm no stranger to different types of needs, energy levels and balancing the love to many at one time. I not only have years of experience with my own but years of experience of also being entrusted to walk and watch some of my Neighbors' dogs when they go out of town.

Dog Walking in Boulder Creek

The city of Boulder Creek, California is located in Santa Cruz County. It’s not far from the major cities of Santa Cruz and San Jose, and Boulder Creek actually serves as the gateway city to California’s oldest state park, Big Basin Redwoods State Park. Up until the 1880s, Boulder Creek was a lumber town known as Lorenzo. So, why the change? The city actually took the name of one of its most popular buildings: the post office, which was informally referred to as “Boulder Creek.”

Unfortunately, if you’re a dog owner in Boulder Creek, or if you’re just visiting, you’ll have to travel outside of the city to find some dog-friendly places for you and Fido to hang out. Boulder Creek has no dog parks and no dog-friendly restaurants. Luckily, there are things you and your canine companion can do close by, so you won’t have to venture too far. Boulder Creek does have a veterinarian office, so if your pooch gets sick, care isn’t too far away. Don’t let this get you down, though; Boulder Creek is a great place to visit, and with so much nearby, this city is a great option even for dog owners!

About fifteen miles from Boulder Creek is Santa Cruz’s University Terrace Dog Park. This bark park gives your dog yet another opportunity to run around off-leash while getting in some serious exercise and making plenty of furtastic new friends! Dogs are not separated by size at this bark park, so keep that in mind if your dog only does well with dogs his own size.

Your dog can explore the rest of University Terrace Park with you as long as he stays on his leash.
