“For the love of dogs!”

Proper care of animals has always been a huge priority of mine! I always had a family dog growing up and now have three big dogs with my husband! Those dogs are our world and we know your dog is yours! We know how hard it can be to balance yours and your pet's needs with all the challenges life brings, so I love the idea of being able to help make it a little easier!

Dog Walking in South Valley

South Valley is a moderate-sized town just south of Albuquerque, New Mexico. There are three veterinary services in the area, which provide both routine and emergency care for resident and visiting pups. Most of the dog-friendly amenities available in the surrounding areas of South Valley can be found in Albuquerque.

The Flying Star Cafe is a local chain and is especially popular with dog owners. The restaurants have outdoor "petios" (pet-friendly patios) and offer water and treats for your dog. The menu includes all-day breakfast, salads, burgers, sandwiches, enchiladas, and fish and chips. Since Flying Star Cafe operates with counter service only, you'll have to leave Fido outside while you order and pay for your food.

Sandia Crest Trail No. 130S is a great hike located on the backside of the Sandia Mountains. This trail is a beginner/intermediate level hike, because there are some some steep hills, and it’s also pup-friendly! The whole hike leads to the beautiful Sandia Crest. Make sure to bring water, as there is no drinking water available.

Gecko's Bar & Tapas is a local hangout. Feel free to bring your dog here, and he'll enjoy being treated to fresh water and maybe even a yummy treat. The menu features shrimp and scallop ceviche and smoked kielbasa, plus soup, salads, sandwiches, and chipotle chicken wings.

If you are in need of a dog park, check out North Domingo Baca Dog Park. This large park has sections for large and smaller dogs, plus wood chip ground cover, trees, awnings, and benches.

Interested in the history of Albuquerque? If so, you're in luck! The ABQ Trolley Co. allows well-behaved, leashed pets to join their humans on an 85-minute narrated tour aboard an open-air trolley.
