“Dog hair don’t care!”

Hi! My name is Jennifer. I grew up with dogs mostly smaller dogs like Poodles and Shih Tzu’s. As an adult I’ve owned 2 Rhodesian Ridgebacks who both lived to be 12 1/2 years old. My current dog is a mixed breed dog who I rescued 3 years ago. Walking, exercising, and socializing my pets has always been a huge priority for me. I look forward to taking your dog out so he or she can get the proper exercise they need.

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.

The Borrego Canyon Park has access to the Borrego Trail, where leashed dogs are welcome.  

Begging for a bite? Grab a bite with your best friend in tow at one of the dog-friendly restaurants in the area.
