“My best friends have 4 paws”

Hi, I'm Lyric. I'm a long-time Bay Area resident, and dog lover. Dogs have always been a part of my life, and 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 Kate Mayer. I recently retired from the engineering world and returned to my main love: working with animals. I have a degree in Animal Science from UC Davis and have a veterinary work experience background. I appreciate all breeds of dogs. I love walking and caring for them, and have yet to meet a dog that didn't end up loving me too.

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!
