I have been around animals, and have had animals my whole life, animals such as: dogs, cats, guinea pigs, rabbits and gerbils. I also have experience in boarding dogs as well as cats. While boarding the animals we often spent the day playing fetch, going on walks and snuggling. I definitely treat all animals in my care as I would treat my own, I live by, and honor the golden rule.

Dog Walking in Dayton

Nearly 9,000 people live in the census-designated place known as Dayton in Lyon County, Nevada. Nestled in a bend of the Carson River, Dayton is found at the western end of the Twenty-Six Mile Desert, and it was once a hub of activity for gold miners in the 1800s. Today, most of the people employed in Dayton work in the retail and foodservice industry, so needless to say, there's lots of good shopping and dining in the area! There are also all sorts of places to enjoy the hot Nevada weather, and you're close to bigger cities like Carson City and South Lake Tahoe. If you're seeking dog-friendly activities near Dayton, there are also plenty of those.

While the tree-lined streets of Dayton's neighborhoods are a lovely place to go for an on-leash walk with your dog, there are also some dog-friendly dining opportunities in town. Don't miss out on visiting Gold Canyon Cafe on Main Street, where you can dig into items ranging from chicken strips and grilled corn to mushroom burgers, tacos, steaks, and so much more. There are a few outdoor tables at Gold Canyon Cafe where your dog is welcome to hang out by your side. Once your appetite is satisfied, you and Skip can head to one of several nearby off-leash parks.

Other activities in the park include non-motorized boating, picnicking, hiking, and horseback riding. There are also several trails throughout the park that make for a great place to walk your dog. Be sure to bring drinking water and a bowl for your dog when you visit.

In only 20 minutes, you and your dog can make the trip to Fuji Dog Park at Carson City Fairgrounds in southern Carson City. There are many things to enjoy about this park, and that includes its separate sections for big and small dogs. There's also a designated swimming hole in this 14-acre park just for dogs, and it provides a lot of welcome relief on hot Nevada days, of which there are many! Dogs must be on a leash in all areas of the Carson City Fairgrounds from 11 AM to 2 PM each day, but that still leaves plenty of off-leash fun time!

It takes just 45 minutes to get to Sparks Marina Dog Park, and you and your pup will be so glad you made the trip. This dog park is located in south-central Sparks, a city of more than 90,000 people. As an added safety measure, there's a double-gated entryway to the park so you can take your dog's leash off in a secure area. Dogs of all sizes share the same space here, and the park's long and narrow structure is ideal for playing fetch. If your dog is a swimmer, they'll love that they can access the water to cool off from inside of the dog park.
