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.

I have been around animals all my live. Growing up in a small flat in Switzerland I had guinea pigs, hamsters, mice, birds and fish. Once I moved to South Africa and was living in a house with a big yard I was able to have dogs and cats. When we first moved to California we lived in apartments and did not have pets. I used to spent time with my friends dogs or looked after cats when the owners were away. Once we moved into a house we adopted a border collie who was scared of everything. I took him to obedience training and later became a dog trainer through Animal Behavior College to get a better understanding about dog behaviors. I took years and lots of patience to get my border collie to interact with other dogs and people. Now he loves his walks and when I take him for runs or walks I often take my neighbor’s dog with me.

Dog Walking in Newport Beach

Newport Beach, California, is an affluent seaside resort with a population of over 80,000 people, not including the many visitors in the summer months. The magnificent beach has been the location of many popular T.V. shows and a favorite among surfers. Bird watchers, naturalists, and outdoor fans in general, will enjoy the many regional parks. However, Newport Beach has a lot to offer pet lovers as well.

The famous Newport Beach is open to dogs as well as long as they are leashed and only at certain time frames. The ocean front beaches allow leashed dogs from 4.30 pm to 10.00 am and the bay front beaches from 5.00 pm to 9.00 am. Dog owners can visit the Newport Beach Dog Park outside these hours. This park offers a large area for dogs of all the sizes to romp around off-leash. There is plenty of shelter from the warm California weather and a water fountain.
