I love dogs more than people. They are selfless, innocent fur babies whose only objective is to please. We, as humans, should reciprocate that love by giving them what little they need and everything they deserve! I think i can give the dog whisperer a run for his money bc even the meanest of dogs have shown me their sweetest sides. I never blame a dog for being aggression; more so, their upbringing. Like human children, dogs become a product of their culture, what they're exposed to. I'm here to show i love them, i understand them, and i'm on their side.

“Furry paws are the best!”

Your dog is my dog. All dogs deserve to be loved. This became even clearer as a volunteer at a no kill shelter in NC. I had the privilege working with dogs and cats. I grew up with dogs and now while I don't own a dog anymore I get to own many dogs. Walking dogs and dog sitting has greatly increased the size of my family. Will your dog be a part of my family?

I'm a stay-at-home mom to 2 kids and Duke, our 7-year-old Black Lab mix rescue dog, who we all spoil. After standing in for my daughter on a dog walking job for a neighbor, I realized that this is something I want to do more of myself! Besides taking care of Duke, I dog sit for a friend when she travels, have participated in the Denver Dumb Friends League Wag 'N Trail fundraising walk, and help my daughter with her own dog walking jobs. I've always owned a dog and can't imagine life without one!

Dog Walking in Thornton

Colorado has always been a favorite state among dog-lovers, and its no wonder that the state's sixth-biggest city, Thornton, is just as good with all its fur-residents. A lot of the old farmland that made up  Thornton has now been converted into dog-friendly parks, trails and open spaces that can provide Fido with whatever his heart desires!

One of the dog-friendly parks in the city is the Trail Winds Dog Park, a fenced-in area for off-leash play, with separate areas for small and large dogs. Both areas have double-gated fences, water spigots with water bowls, and shaded sitting areas. Owners can also enjoy the clean-up stations and trash bins provided by the park. Dogs can even venture out to the rest of Trail Winds Park, which takes up about 50 acres that includes paved trails and open, grassy areas. Dogs must remain on a leash outside the fenced-in portion.

Another popular destination in Thornton is the East Lake Shores Park, one of the largest parks in Thornton with miles of paved trails that surround the East Lake. The area also includes open areas and a sandy shoreline, as well as benches, water fountains, and trash bins. Fido is welcome to all areas of the park, but must remain on a leash.

There are twelve animal hospitals in town, and if that's not enough for you to love the city, then just take a step outside and see how happy Fido will be with all the places you can walk around Thornton!

Lamberston Lakes is a residential neighborhood with plenty of densely packed houses, and the Lamberston Lakes Open Space, a large open area with two lakes and plenty of vibrant green fields. The park isn't just eye candy though; it has lots of paved trails, designated picnic areas, fishing holes, and a boat launch. The park is dog-friendly for leashed pups, and also provides benches, trash bins, and nighttime lights. South of the park is the Tuck Ditch Park, another open space lot with a children's playground and trails that encircle a small creek. Leashed dogs are welcome at the park, but humans must bring clean-up bags.

Old Thornton

Old Thornton holds most of the former land that was made up when the town was incorporated, and nowadays provides a historically beautiful neighborhood. The Community Park is the featured place to go for most dog-lovers, with large areas dedicated to recreational ballfields, a children's playground, and picnic shelter. Dogs are allowed on leash at the park, and have access to the picnic shelter, concrete trails, and open fields, but are not permitted to go in the children's play area. Additional features include water fountains, trash bins, shaded sitting areas, restroom access, clean-up stations, and nighttime lights. 

Woodglenn Park

Woodglenn Park

Woodglenn Park isn't a park, but a residential neighborhood with not too many wooded areas. Despite the lack of trees, the community still has plenty of dog-friendly parks for Fido. One of these includes the Brookshire Park, a small park with a few trees and a large, open area for Fido to run around in and go about his business. Dogs must be on a leash, and owners must bring water and clean-up bags. South of the park is a bit more impressive park known as Carpenter Park, a dog-friendly area that surrounds a pond with green fields and paved trails for leashed pups. This park is a better option to take a walk with the concrete trails, trash bins, water fountains, and benches.

There's no shortage of dog-friendly areas in the Remington neighborhood. The E.B. Rains Jr. Memorial Park is a fan-favorite at the community, with plenty of open space to run around and over 2 miles of paved trails that surround the scenic Webster Lake. Dogs are welcome on a leash, and have access to picnic shelters, trash bins, water fountains, and a clean-up station. Another option would be the Charles C. Winburn Park, a peaceful park with shaded walking trails and a fishing hole at the pond. Dogs are welcome at the park, but must remain on a leash and be cleaned up after, with clean-up bags and water fountains provided.

The amount of dog-friendly activities in the Southwest Thornton neighborhood may surprise you. The Civic Center Park provides dog-lovers the best place to walk Fido, providing concrete trails around the beautiful Croke Lake, open play areas for Fido to play fetch at, and additional features like water fountains, trash bins, benches, and clean-up stations. A quieter park is the Northstar Park, which will provide some great one-on-one time with a leashed Fido as you take him for a short walk on the trails that encompass this space. Although, no park can beat a dog-friendly frozen yogurt shop, like TCBY that provides outdoor seating for you and Fido, and vanilla options so even Fido can have a treat!
