I love meeting new dogs and would love to get to know your four legged friend. I rescued my dog from the shelter 8 years ago and he is my best friend. I also just got a husky pup who is definitely keeping me on my toes. He is 3 months old and full of energy. I look forward to the new friends I can make through walking your dog.

Dog Walking in Modesto

The city of Modesto, California, sandwiched between Sacramento and Fresno, was founded in 1870. The city was actually the setting for the movie “American Graffiti” in 1973. Modesto is also a dog-loving city, with more than 30,000 dogs living there. There are plenty of dog-friendly activities in Modesto so you can bring Fido with you when you visit.

If you like hiking, Dry Creek has a six-mile paved trail that is popular with the local dog lovers. The trail takes you along Dry Creek, which may or may not be dry depending on how much rain there has been in the area. The trail also passes several local parks that have playgrounds, picnic areas, restrooms, and other amenities. Your pooch will love all the wildlife to be seen along the trail.

After the hike, get a bite to eat at the Barking Dog Grill on 11th Street where you can get a barking dog (hot dog), steak, fish, or chicken. And they have a “naked dog” for Fido but don’t tell him he is eating a hot DOG. Time for bed? Head over to the Microtel Inn, Days Inn, Motel 6, Clarion Inn, or the Super 8. They are all dog lovers and will let Fido sleep inside with you instead of in the car.

The natural area has trails carved through it that were once part of the rail systems which were the lifeline to the area. To say the least, the views are nothing to bark at.  You and your furry friend will want to visit often as they update it and continue to attach it to other points of the Rails to Trails chain. The Modesto Virginia Corridor has lots of open room so that you can even play fetch

It’s time to grab all your humans, even the little ones, and take a 20-minute car ride to  Sunnyview Dog Park in Turlock. Not only are there two designated areas to play in, but there are also several water fountains for both people and pups. The areas are fenced in so you can take the leash off and enjoy the freedom.  Right next to it is a playground for your mini humans to play in. You can relax on the benches when you’re not feeling quite as active as your furry friend or your rambunctious little ones.  The large grassy field is just right for playing catch, digging holes, or even picnicking.
