Hi! My name is Gina and I love dogs (but that’s why everyone is here, right?) I’ve been employed by animal shelters for the past six years, and was the dog behaviorist at my last shelter for over five years. Much of my focus was helping “difficult” dogs to become adoptable and find loving homes! I currently own a chihuahua mix and a yorkie/beagle, but my family’s pit bull was the dog that first proved to me how amazing dogs are and why I’d like to work with them as my career.

I’m Emily! My family got a dog when I was little, and I've been hooked ever since. My experience at the animal hospital where I worked for 2 years (Vet Tech) made me more aware of how to properly care for dogs in everyday situations, but also how to be on the look out for signs of illness, fear, and aggression in our furry friends, and I was trained on how to properly respond in those situations. I love taking care animals of all kinds and look forward to meeting yours!

Dog Walking in Chico

Grab your friends and their pooches and go on a puppy play date at Degarmo Dog Park. The pups will love pouncing and rolling with each other in Degarmo’s massive green lawn, and you’ll love the free admission. Degarmo is open from 7 a.m. to dusk every day except Wednesday when the park is closed from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. for maintenance.

Known as the Crown Jewel of Chico, Bidwell Park has miles and miles of trail for you and your dog to explore, as well as off-leash zones and water features just for dogs. There’s no price tag to enter this landscape of fun, and you and your pup can run and play for hours on end, as long as the sun is in the sky. Once the sun trades places with the moon, it’s time to head home.

If you truly want to go on an adventure with your dog, explore your way down to Moore Road Dog Park. Commonly called a gem hidden in the pines, Moore Road Dog Park is definitely off the beaten path, as your GPS will be sending you in circles trying to find it. Once you stumble upon this dog park, though, you’ll be going back again and again. Its stunning views, soft pine-needle paths and friendly atmosphere make all other dog parks tuck their tails between their legs.

The park itself has a multitude of attractions including a sand lot and many playgrounds. Unfortunately because it is an incredibly pawpular attraction, most dog owners try to wake up as early as possible to avoid the rush. If you go later in the day, you are guaranteed to run into a family or two with small children running to pet your dog. Grab a coffee and some sunscreen for a early morning walk at Caper Acres!

Perhaps one of the greatest places in Chico is the Lezlie Morrow Memorial Dog Park. This park, often called paradise by dog owners, is extremely spacious, has plenty of seating and fresh running water for humans and animals. Furthermore, because this park is one of the most popular among Chico dog owners, you are likely to run into other dogs and their owners. This makes this an ideal location to help socialize dogs. Lastly, because of the abundance of picnic tables it is a great place to take your friends for a picnic. Get ready and prepare yourself for a fun-filled day!
