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 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.

“DOGS ARE THE BEST PEOPLE”

Hello, my name is Nancy and I am happily married with a family of 3 fur babies, 2 fish, 1 cockatiel, and 1 bearded dragon. Daily I wake up to happy tails wagging, ready and eager to go on long walks, to the dog parks, hiking, the beach, or to puppy play dates. I will be studying to become a veterinary technician. Growing up I have always been surrounded by animals; from family pets to those I have rescued and nurtured back to health until I found them a loving new home. Fun for me is learning through new experiences from outdoor activities, drawing, driving vehicles, riding bikes, working out, healthy recipes, and enjoying it alongside loving family and pets. My dream is to help as many animals in the world as I can and ensure they have amazing, long, happy lives. Always with a smile, I am ecstatic to meet your fur baby.

Dog Walking in Laguna Woods

Just five miles from the coast, Laguna Woods is a popular city located in Orange County, California. While Laguna Woods welcomes everyone, it's built up quite the reputation for being a community for retirees or those over the age of 55. Although the city is composed of several smaller communities, residents pride themselves on how neighborly and friendly the city truly is.

Unfortunately, Laguna Woods isn’t a very dog-friendly city. There’s one dog park located within Laguna Woods. There’s also one dog-friendly restaurant, which is a Jersey Mikes. If you’re hoping to go out and have an adventure with your dog, you’ll do better to go to a nearby larger city, such as Mission Viejo, Laguna Beach, or Aliso Viejo. These cities have many different dog-friendly restaurants to choose from. There are more dog parks located within a twenty-minute drive of Laguna Woods. While Laguna Woods doesn’t have a veterinarian clinic, there are quite a few in the nearby city of Laguna Hills. 

Although you might have a tough time finding dog-friendly activities within the city, don’t let it scare you off; there’s something just a hop, skip, and jump – or short drive – down the road.
