My name is Isaak, and I am long-time animal lover!I am originally from northern California, and I currently live in Queens, NYC. 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.

I feel I approach relationships with dogs deep care. I am I truly believe dogs require exercise to feel balanced and have a an outlet for their energy and the ability to explore. I have helped many dogs overcome difficult walking habits like pulling through exploration of harnesses and gentle leaders. Being with dogs, walking and serving people make me happy. I would love to meet your dog and you! I am available for one time gigs and ongoing walking appointments, pet sitting and boarding.

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.

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 Turlock

Turlock, California is a bustling city in the state's Central Valley. Located close to the San Francisco Bay area and the Sierra Nevada Mountains, the Turlock is also home to a mass of cultural events, parks, and schools. Full of pet-lovers, Turlock also offers many opportunities to get out and explore with your four-legged friend.

If you're looking for a dog park, you have several choices, including the newly-built Swanson Centennial Dog Park. This large play area has fences, trees for shade, and a water fountain. Quite popular in the area, it's not uncommon to see the park filled with dogs and owners looking to enjoy the beautiful California sunshine.

Another option is the Turlock Dog Park, also called the Sunnyview Dog Park. Off-leash dogs are welcome in the fenced-in sections (one for small dogs, and one for large dogs). This park has a more peaceful, secluded location, and locals often report seeing no other dogs or people during daytime visits.

Several dog-approved hiking trails are close to the Turlock area. With both paved and un-paved sections, the Dry Creek Trail gives dogs the chance to explore flora and fauna in the heart of the valley. Featuring a small creek, this trail was once an old railway line, now converted to a walkable trail as part of the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy program. Another rail-to-trail option in the area is the Modesto Virginia Corridor, which is less rural than the Dry Creek Trail, but offers access to retail establishments and residential neighborhoods.
