“Your Pup’s Best Friend. And Your Peace of Mind!”

I am Lauretta and I have had dogs, cats and horses all my life. I’m retired so, please think of me as your pup's doting 'aunt, grandma or step-mom.' I am reliable, trustworthy and I treat your pup as if they are my own. I know how hard it is to be busy and guilt ridden that your fur-baby is stuck at home. Well, there is nothing I like better than providing exercise, sniffing opportunities, companionship and fun for your pup.

“You dog(s) will be cared for as if they are mine!”

I am an absolute dog person! I’ve had dogs my entire life, just over 30 years. I currently have a 13 year old Chihuahua who I’ve had since she was 8 weeks old and a 13 year old female German Shepherd who I adopted when she was 8. I have a wide experience from very small dogs like Chihuahuas, Bichons all the way up to large strong dogs like American Staffys (Pitbulls) and German Shepherds, and evening a few military trained guard dogs. Dogs tend to like and trust me right away.

Dog Walking in Escondido

California is going to the dogs. More than 4 out of 10 of all families in California have extended their family with a friendly canine companion. Escondido is no exception and with a population of approximately 150,000 people this translated to almost 60,000 dogs. But not only the residents are amiable towards dogs; the entire city of Escondido is considered pet-friendly.

There are many dog-friendly places in town, to the delight of the owners. Wine lovers can visit the Bell Marie Winery for a picnic with a good wine and a variety of nice cheeses or the Intertwined Bistro & Wine Bar. Another local suggestion is the Vinz Wine Bar that even has a special menu for dogs.

The May Flower Dog Park is agreed to be the best place for dogs to unwind in Escondido, California. The park is divided into a section for large dogs, a section for small dogs and a gated area for dogs all sizes and is well-maintained.

The natural surroundings of Escondido offer a wide variety of vegetation types, all of which can be witnessed at the Daley Ranch Preserve, a humongous conservation area managed by the city of Escondido. Dogs are allowed to join their owners as long as they are on a leash. Another great way to enjoy the day with your furry friend(s).
