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 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.

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.
