My name is Isaak, and I am long-time animal lover!I am originally from northern California, and I currently live in Queens, NYC. I have owned and lived with dogs my entire life; in fact, at the age of eleven, my love of animals led me to the decision to become a fully committed vegetarian. Although I don't currently reside with a dog, my apartment is dog-friendly, and has hosted numerous doggy friends. Breed-wise, my experience with dogs includes: Labs, Dachshunds, Bulldogs, Retrievers, Pointers, Pulis, Rhodesian Ridgebacks and Great Pyrenees--and I am looking forward to meeting more!! :)

I just want to walk all the dogs! Since I was young I have loved animals but as an adult I have a special affinity for dogs. I love them all! I have experience working at a veterinary office. I also have two dogs if my own. We walk along a local walking/bike path and, even when my dogs aren’t there, I love to stop and talk with all the dogs. I’ve never met a dog I didn’t love or a dog that didn’t love me. I would love the opportunity to meet your dog and spend some time with them.

Hey, my name is Kurtis! I recently moved to New York City from Northern California. Growing up, there were always a variety of dogs in my life. My most recent furry friends were my Dad's dog Kalasso, a 2-year-old pit bull, and Nina, my 17-year-old Chihuahua, who was recently called to Doggy Heaven. I've owned breeds such as Huskies, Rottweilers, pit bulls, and Chihuahuas. I've also helped family and friends with walking and sitting their furry friends. I've always had a special bond with animals and would be honored if you'd place your furry family in my care.

Dog Walking in Hughson

Set in the heart of California’s Central Valley, Hughson, CA is technically the newest city in Stanislaus County. Don’t let that fact fool you, though -- Hughson has a long history. If you and your pooch take a wander around its quaint, picturesque downtown, you’ll find buildings that are over one hundred years old! Today, Hughson is mostly an agricultural area famous for its almonds.

That’s not the only draw though -- it’s easy to see why the town’s residents are "nuts" about living there! Hughson’s motto is "A Small Community with A Big Heart", and that spirit is clearly displayed in the regular events it hosts, from the farmer’s markets to the annual holiday season Parade of Lights.

Hughson doesn’t have its own dog park, but you and your pooch are still sure to sniff out something to do! The town has a couple of community parks that are ideal for leashed walks -- Fontana Park is a favorite of local pups and their owners, and Fox Grove Park has access to the Stanislaus River to boot. For doggy dining, check out Agave Azul, a local gem that welcomes wagging tails at outdoor tables. You might need to drive a little to get the best for your buddy, but don’t worry -- you’ll find plenty of off-leash exercise options a little further afield!

The Modesto Dog Park at Elk Park is just a twenty-minute drive from Hughson, so you’d need to be barking mad not to check it out! The park is huge -- there’s enough room here for even the most energetic fur ball to leap about to their heart’s content. There’s a separate area for small dogs so your pooch can socialize no matter their size, and waste bags and toys are provided. As an added bonus, there’s an entrance to the Virginia Corridor Trailway nearby! The trail is still being completed, but a stretch of the eight mile walk makes a fabulous warm-up or cool-down.

If your pooch likes hiking, a walk on the Dry Creek Trail is sure to get their tail wagging! According to local legend, the trail is haunted by the heartbroken ghost of a poor farmhand, pining for the love of a rich banker’s daughter. Don’t worry, though -- whether you and your pup are superstitious or skeptics, it’s difficult to be scared when you walk through dappled sunlight under mature trees! As the trail winds into East La Loma Park, you’ll notice a couple of wooden obstacles that your furry friend can leap over. Remember to bring waste bags and water!

Looking for a pretty place to stretch all six of your legs? Consider checking out the Tuolumne River Regional Park! The park’s 500 acres run alongside the river for seven miles and feature a pawesome paved trail with fabulous views over the water. The walk is well-shaded by gorgeous walnut trees, so there’s no need to worry about your furry friend overheating in the California sun. Careful, though -- the trail is popular with cyclists, so keep an eye out for speeding bikes! Two-legged family members might appreciate the two playgrounds, and there are plenty of spots for barbecuing.

The Oakdale Dog Park is a little difficult to find -- it’s tucked away on Crane Road, just outside of town -- but once your pooch gets inside those double gates, you two might decide the search was worth it! Like the park in Modesto, the dog run has separate areas for large and small dogs, but unlike the Modesto park, the surface here is grass, not sand. You might need to bring a towel for post-play cleanup. Bags, toys, and water are all provided, so all you need to do is BYOB (Bring Your Own Beast)!

The Swanson Centennial Dog Park in Turlock is a real mutts-visit! Unlike the park in Oakdale, the off-leash area is well shaded by large sycamore trees. Not only that, but the area is huge -- there’s plenty of space for your pooch to run around and tire themselves out in, or for a spirited game of catch. There’s also a couple of benches so tired pet parents can take a load off and watch their pups play! Unfortunately, though, there’s no separate small dog area, so be mindful of your tyke’s temperament. Don't forget to bring waste bags and water.
