“All clothing I own is covered in dog hair.”

I've always been the one who everyone calls for anything dog related. I've volunteered at shelters, have worked for a pet behaviorist's radio show, grew up with dogs, and currently have two awesome low-rider pit mix rescue pups of my own. I know how much our dogs can affect every aspect of our lives, and I'd like to help alleviate your stress by making sure your buddies are well cared for while you're out. Let me know if your pups would like to go walking with me soon. I can't wait to meet them!

Hey there! I've been a dog/animal lover since I was a kid and have been walking dogs since I was a teenager. I walked dogs in the summers growing up and I've been dog sitting for friends for the past 4 years whenever they leave town. My family has a dog as well (a Cavalier King Charles named Sawyer) who I'm very close with and have spent countless hours playing with and taking care of. I'm looking forward to meeting some new dogs!

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.

Dog Walking in Whittier

Whittier is a city that’s on the up and coming. The town’s growth has been slow and gradual, but the last census showed a definite increase in population. With population comes pupulation, and the services that they need to sustain them. Consider that there are seven vets and animal hospitals within Whittier, and then try to say that dogs here don’t have it good. If you’re looking for the full Whittier experience, start with a bite to eat at Ruby’s Diner, where dogs are welcome and classic diner favorites never stop flying.

If a hike is in order, try the Murphy Ranch Park. Your on-leash dog is welcome to join you on the 1.6 mile loop with views of Whittier. If you need more of a challenge to tire your dog out, try the Whittier Turnbull Canyon Hiking Trail. This four-mile loop is a lot steeper, so make sure you bring plenty of water, but the views of the canyon can’t be beat.

At the end of a long day, you want to come home and relax. In Whittier, that means Motel 6 Whittier or, if you don’t mind a small pet fee, the Radisson Hotel Whittier and Vagabond Inn Whittier both offer dog-friendly rooms.

The Fullerton neighborhood of Sunny Hills is home to Fullerton Pooch Park. Yes, the park is exactly as cute as that name would suggest! It’s also only 25 minutes from Whittier. The park is divided into two areas. The first is for large dogs, and contains some enrichment equipment like a large climbing tire. The second area is for small dogs, and while it doesn’t have as many toys, it does have great benches and places for you to rest while your little one tears it up. The park is popular with locals, so expect to make at least one new friend!

Penn Park in East Whittier is a great place to take your dog for a nice, relaxing walk in nature. Though the park itself isn’t incredibly large, it gives the impression that you’re a thousand miles from your troubles. The parks paths wind through grassy areas and even have a waterfall along the way! There’s also picnic tables, bathrooms, and a play area for kids. Dogs will have to stay on leash inside the park, but there’s so much going on that any dogs who like to people-watch won’t mind. Bring your own water bowl, as these fountains are too tall for dogs!

Orange Avenue Junction is a brightly named neighborhood in West Covina. Just 25 minutes from Whittier, this neighborhood is home to the Central Bark Dog Park. Critics haven’t been ruff with this park; it’s popular with locals and those just passing through. This park has some trees, and benches for tired dogs and owners to relax after a romp session. The area is split into large and small dog fenced areas. Before you head into the Central Bark Dog Park, make sure you have some water and a bowl. The one drawback to this spacious park is that they don’t have water fountains on site.
