“Dog lover and friend to all animals!”

Hi, my name is Sam Fiorini! My love for dogs is what sparked me to enter the wonderful world of Wag! Dog Walking. I've done dog walking and dog sitting for my friends for my entire life and I've done volunteer work for a couple of animal shelters. I understand the importance of trusting someone to care for your fur babies. I grew up in a household with just as many babies as there were fur babies. I currently have 2 dogs of my own.

“A dog's best friend.”

I'm from the SF Bay Area, now living in Palm Springs. My family always had a dog or two, which I helped raise from puppies. I learned dog walking, sitting & basic training through a job I had in college, from 2008-2013. In 2018, I adopted a Pom/Chi/Mix. We took a Sirius Puppy Training class & gained additional skills for positive reinforcement training & canine enrichment. I've taken online courses through Dunbar Academy to learn more on basic & obedience training, for puppies & adult dogs.

Dog Walking in Desert Hot Springs

Located in the Coachella Valley, Desert Hot Springs, CA is sometimes referred to as the Desert Empire. As its name suggests, Desert Hot Springs is home to lush natural springs and breathtaking mountain views, which make it a furrific vacation destination for pet owners. Desert Hot Springs is one of a limited number of places in the whole world where you can find naturally occurring mineral springs, both hot and cold!

Like many places in California, the climate is desert, which means that the winters are very warm and the summers are hot. The probability of heat waves with temperatures over 110 °F is high, so make sure you bring plenty of water along for all your adventures here. Desert Hot Springs even has a veterinary hospital in town that will come in handy if you have any emergencies related to your pup's health. 

This scenic city is very dog-friendly and offers plenty of lodging accommodations that welcome pets. Desert Hot Springs Inn and The Spring Resort & Spa both allow canine guests, but have different pet fees and restrictions. If you and Fido pre-fur camping, you can head to Sands RV & Golf Resort or Desert Springs Spa RV Park.

Desert Hot Springs doesn't have any dog parks and only has one dog-friendly restaurant, but what it lacks in dog-friendly amenities, it makes up for in natural beauty and gorgeous weather!

Around 21 miles away from Desert Hot Springs, you'll find a place where you can take your pup for some much-needed off-leash exercise: Cap Homme at Ralph Adams Park. This place has a designated off-leash area where your pup can run and meet new friends. Keep in mind that the off-leash park is not fenced. If you're in the mood for something a little different, visit the trails in the main park with your leashed pooch. The trails vary in length and difficulty so you can choose one to suit your abilities. The off-leash area is very big and flat, which is great for running, and the hiking trails are more demanding, so they're pawfect for hyperactive dogs. Bring water!

If you are bored of simple dog parks and you need something more adventurous for both you and your pup, you should consider visiting the Kitching Peak Trail.
