I have had a house full of animals ever since I was a little boy. I have personally taken care of 5 of my own dogs. This includes the bare essentials of walking, playing, feeding, bathing and maintaining the happiness of my dogs. I have a passion for dogs in particular because they are such a care free species. They will show you how happy they are or they can show you that something is wrong.

“Top Dog Express”

Hi, I'm Daniel. I grew up in California housesitting for my uncles 3 Pitbull Mastiffs since I was 13. It was a daunting task at first - but over the years it made me become a dog whisperer of sorts. I am an animal lover in general, but K-9's are my speciality. I enjoy nature and jogging. I want to give your loyal companion the best workout possible. I will be thrilled if you let me be a part of your happy K-9 family too!

Dog Walking in Costa Mesa

The city’s name Costa Mesa literally means “coast table” in Spanish, due to the fact that it is a plateau that is geographically located by the coast. Its first inhabitants were Native American Indians. However, the city has grown to be a major commercial and industrial center of Orange County.

One of the 14 official dog parks in Orange County is the Costa Mesa Bark Park. The park is managed by the Costa Mesa Bark Park Foundation. The 2-acre park is full of facilities such as picnic tables, drinking fountains, playgrounds and exercise areas. Most importantly, the two separate areas allow your dogs to freely and safely run around the area. There are also tennis balls lying around for your dog to enjoy.

Talbert Nature Preserve is the perfect place for a change of scenery. It offers almost 2,000 acres of picturesque landscape with a park or picnicking, trail, botanical garden and wildlife. The trail system is laid out perfectly for a variety of activities, including hiking, biking, jogging and it welcomes dogs on leash for some lovely walk with nature.

Known to locals for its creativity, and to others as the City of the Arts, Costa Mesa home to Segerstrom Center for the Arts who showcases top Broadway performance and concerts. There is plenty of things to partake in within the city of Costa Mesa like indulging in some retail therapy, discovering the outdoors, getting to know the city’s history and much more. All these happen in Costa Mesa, what’s better is you can experience all of it with your dog.
