My name is Mitra and I have a BA in psychology and more than 20 years experience working with dogs. I have raised service dog puppies, managed a dog kennel and dog daycare, worked as a dog trainer conducting basic obedience and drop in puppy socials, and have also worked and volunteered in animal shelters taking care of shelter dogs and cats, as well as assisting veterinarians with medicating and spay/neuter surgeries. I have grown up with dogs my whole life and have seen them from puppyhood to adulthood. In the past I worked with my poodle fornpet therapy at a hospice, and competed in AKC agility competitions with my previous australian shepherd. I currently reside with my two dogs Poet (an australian shepherd) and Trooper (a border collie/labrador cross we adopted from a local shelter). I am comfortable with dogs of all sizes, ages, and breeds. As a dog owner myself, I know the safety of your dog is very important and I will make sure your pet is properly leashed before leaving and will always take precautions with gates and door so they are safe before and after their walks!

“I love and care for dogs like mine own.”

Hiya! I am a college student/nanny who believes she still has to much time on her hands! I love pets and especially dogs. but unfortunately I can not have one due to some relatives being allergic. So to fill the void of wanting a dog I figure walking and playing with other people dogs would be the next best thing! I do have experience playing and walking dogs Even though i do not have one. I tend to take my cousins dogs out often.

“Aspiring firefighter, current EMT, and dog walker!”

My passion for animals extends to when I was a child. The one who has really impacted me is our family pug. I self trained her at the age of 14 on how to sit, lay down, and learn to do her business outside. I even trained our rabbit when loose in the backyard when to go “home” (his cage)! Needless to say I have a big heart for all animals. When it comes to the best for your best friend you can count on me 110%! Feel free to message me with any questions you may have.

Dog Walking in Gilroy

In the southern part of beautiful, technologically savvy, Santa Clara County, Gilroy, California is known as the Garlic Capital of the World. The town is a main producer of garlic, and has a garlic festival every year where they feature garlic-flavored foods that even includes garlic ice cream! The city, which was founded in 1870, is at the base of the Santa Cruz Mountains and was named after a Scotsman, John Gilroy, who married the daughter of a wealthy rancher he was employed by. The family owned many dogs, and now the town of approximately 51,700 people own an estimated 11,613 dogs. This means you should bring Fido when you visit because there are many dog-friendly places in town.

Morgan Dog Park on West Edmundson is the favorite for the local pups. There are separate sides for large and small dogs, double-gates for safety, lots of water buckets and dog toys everywhere, shade trees and benches galore, and right outside the park is a lake with ducks where you and the pup can hang out and chill out a bit before getting back in the car. There are always a lot of friendly dog owners and fun-loving dogs.

Gilroy Dog Park on Mantelli Drive is separated for big and small dogs and has about two acres of open area to run and play on. With a fountain, dog toys, poop bag dispensers, natural gravel so no mud and lots of benches and shade trees. The park outside has a playground, tennis courts, skate park, picnic tables, horseshoes, hiking trails, ball fields, BBQ areas, and restrooms.
