I currently have a 13 y/o lab and an 8 y/o Golden Pyrenese/ Chow mix (he's huge!). I am accustomed to the needs of older dogs, but I also have the ability to keep the younger ones entertained.

Dog Walking in Porterville

Nestled in the agriculturally rich San Joaquin Valley, Porterville offers a small town feel with some pawsome amenities. While boasting six veterinary hospitals and clinics, this town also offers plenty of room for some on-leash roaming in the many city parks, especially at the Porterville Dog Park. Located on the grounds of the Sports Complex, this off-leash dog park has doggy drinking fountains and fire hydrants, as well as separate play areas for small and large pooches. There are plenty of benches and shade trees for you to enjoy while your pup frolics with his friends.

A lot of dog walkers love Murry Park in the northeast section of the city. The park contains over twenty acres of open areas, trees, and paths. There is always plenty of paw-tastic activity going on to keep your dog entertained.

Tulare County, where Porterville is found, is a relatively flat area filled with citrus orchards, but just to the east, the Sierra Nevada Mountains and Sequoia National Forest offer plenty of outdoor entertainment. Spend a weekend at Lake Success in the foothills, camping and dog-paddling, or rent a dog fur-iendly houseboat for a memorable vacation.

With the wide-open spaces and mild climate of Central California, Porterville is a great place for pet owners to call home.

Dog lovers and pups of all kinds are welcome right in the heart of Porterville! Enjoy your morning or evening daily walk on Porterville’s Rails-to-Trails Parkway. This former railroad is now a paved, lighted trail maintained by the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy for two- and four-legged exercise. Begin at the trailhead on East Henderson, near the corner of Fourth Street or at the other end, 1.3 miles to the south, at East Olive Avenue, behind Eastridge Plaza. After the trail, walk on over and splurge on treats for yourself and your doggo at Spoon’s Frozen Yogurt. The wide-open spaces of Zalud Park are also just a few blocks to the west. Keep the leash on and take a little time to explore!

Porterville’s first and favorite park lies just east of the city center. Murry Park features 20 acres of room to roam! The wide-open spaces include a beautiful pond, perfect for getting your paws wet. You can also enjoy the water from the palm-lined pathway or the rock bridge over the waterfall during your leisurely stroll. There are three covered pavilions if the sun gets too bright or you just need a moment to rest. Keep your leash with you and make sure to bring your own doggie waste bags to enjoy a perfect day in the rolling hills of the park.

Another gateway town to the Sequoia National Forest, the nearby town of Exeter welcomes both two- and four-legged travelers with fun and hospitality. The highlight of the dog-friendly town is their pawsome Bark Park. You’ll find it between Pine and Palm Streets on F Street. The park is located within walking distance of the quaint downtown area, full of local boutiques and antiques, and right across the street from City Hall. Bring your own water and toys to enjoy the spacious large dog area or play in the fenced small dog area. For more adventure, head to the Kaweah Oaks Preserve with four easy trails for a little nature walking. Stop at the gateway pavilion to pick up a map and choose the best hike to get that tail wagging!

Just a short drive to the east of Porterville, Camp Nelson inside Sequoia National Forest is a hiking paradise for you and your pup. Snap on the leash and take to the trails! Try the Camp Nelson Trail for some good distance with a slow incline that follows a fork of the Tule River. Jordan Peak Lookout Trail is a good beginner’s hike with amazing views. If you and your dog are up for a challenge, try Freeman Creek Trail, a long, steep trail just a little farther into the forest. Make sure to bring along plenty of water and help keep the forest clean by properly disposing of waste.
