“Everything I own is covered in dog hair.”

I've always been the one who everyone calls for anything dog related. I've volunteered at shelters, have worked for a pet behaviorist's radio show, grew up with dogs, and currently have two awesome low-rider pit mix rescue pups of my own. I know how much our dogs can affect every aspect of our lives, and I'd like to help alleviate your stress by making sure your buddies are well cared for while you're out. Let me know if your pups would like to go walking with me soon. I can't wait to meet them!

My family has a dog as well (a Cavalier King Charles named Sawyer) who I'm very close with and have spent countless hours playing with and taking care of. I'm looking forward to meeting some new dogs!

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.

Dog Walking in Downey


The city of Downey treats canines as kings. It’s one of the many reasons that over one hundred thousand residents call the city home. Six animal hospitals and vet clinics mean your pup can receive attention at the drop of a hat, and there’s nothing that can beat that peace of mind. Explore Downey fearlessly, knowing that help is never out of your reach. 

Dog friendly dining is also never out of your reach in Downey. Start your visit with a trip to Bastards American Canteen, where aside from salty language, they serve amazing craft beers on tap with some of the most popular pub food around. Plus, two patios means your dog is always welcome to join you!

There’s more to do than snack in Downey, however. Dogs and their owners love to take a spin on the San Gabriel Trail. This trail is dozens of miles long and runs through several nearby communities, but there’s a parking area and access point in Downey. Jump on the trail to go as far as you like before turning back!

If you’ve done your hike, take your own lazy (or active) dog to the Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar, where American classics are made daily. Your dog can join you on the patio--and on all your Downey adventures!

Wilderness Park in Downey’s Little Lake neighborhood is a pupular destination for dogs. It’s a highly trafficked park, especially on great picnic days. so there’s plenty for your dog to sniff! The park conjures up an idyllic scene, featuring a duck pond and wide, grassy areas perfect for picnicking. Your dog will enjoy exploring these meadows with you, or you could hit the jogging trails to really cover some ground. Either way, Wilderness Park is a great break from the urban hustle of Downey. Bring your own water and doggie bowl when you go to the park, as the amenities are heavy on “wilderness”.

The Rio San Gabriel Park, for which this Downey neighborhood is named, defines fun for the whole family. Kids will love the playground areas, everyone will love the grill spots, but your dog has the best treat of all: an off leash dog park! Inside the larger Rio San Gabriel Park are two areas dedicated for off leash play. One is for dogs under 15 inches at the shoulder, and one is for dogs larger than that. This dog park is wildly popular, so you will almost always find a friend for your pup in the park. If your dog is shy, he can still make use of the walking trails through this park as long as he remains on leash.

Furman Park is a great, small community park. It’s a destination for many residents of both Smallwood and surrounding neighborhoods. It’s geared towards sports play, offering fields for baseball, and courts for tennis. It’s a great, convenient place to walk your dog. There’s usually something going on, so social dogs will get to see lots of people and maybe watch humans chase balls--his favorite! You can walk the perimeter of the park easily, and the bright lights keep this park open until 9pm even in the winter. It’s a great resource if you don’t always have time to walk your dog during the day.

Dennis the Menace Park in this neighborhood is a family park that’s great for getting a whole crowd together, or just walking your dog on your own. The playground and picnic areas are the main draws of the park, but your dog is going to love walking through the meadows. A lot of the park is given over to grass. Dogs love to sniff and explore, and you can take a leisurely stroll while their senses get a full work out! There are also paths throughout the park, though they’re not long and most walkers will be able to go through them a couple times.
