“Loving animals since ‘99”

Hello, I am currently studying for my BS in Pre-Veterinary Science at UNR. I have had dogs my whole life and many different breeds from Shih Tzu to Rottweiler, so I am comfortable working with all different sizes, ages, and trained levels. I have continually worked with animals of my own as well as in my work places, in a grooming salon and vet office. I hope to meet your fury family members soon!

Dog Walking in Sparks

When people think of traveling to Nevada, they think gambling, casinos, and late nights of parties. While that may be true (Vegas baby!) for some areas, Sparks offers a bit more to the pet owner crowd. Surrounded by mountains and many nature trails to explore, your pet will love a trip to Sparks, Nevada.

There are over 6.3 million acres in the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest. There are hundreds of trails to explore with your pet and even areas that you can camp in. There are horseback trails as well as hiking trails, for those who may want to go on an extended horse vacation. The scenery is breath-taking, and your pet will be grateful for the new smells and exercise.

For day-to-day activities, your pet can romp around the Sparks Marina Dog Park. This park surrounds a 77-acre lake and even has its own designated swimming area for pooches. There is a fenced-in spot for canines to run free and dozens of walking trails to explore surrounding the dog park. A real exciting day out!

Sparks is too nice of a city just to visit for a day, so stay the night at the Western Village Inn and Casino. While it is a bit pricey to bring your pet, they make it worth the stay. The hotel is very modern, hip, and clean and will do everything to make your pet and you feel at home.

When it's time to chow down, drive a short distance to Reno for some tasty cuisine. Wild River Grille is a classy restaurant that serves tasty American dishes. They often have wine tasting parties, live music, and other events. Your well-behaved pet can join you on their lovely outside seating.

Another fun place is Squeeze In. This place offers a quirky menu with strange combinations that will keep your dining experience fun. Some of the dishes include omelets, eggs Benedict, sandwiches, and much more. Your pet is allowed to dine with you at their outside seating.

Sparks is a fresh, hip city that offers so much to do with your pet. You will definitely enjoy your stay here!

If your pup needs some off-leash exercise, head over to Sparks Marina Dog Park. This beautiful dog park is fenced in, but locals have noticed that smaller dogs can fit through the fence, so be careful. There is also a small pond that the dogs can play in, but the fence does not block the water and dogs can swim around it and leave the park. Be aware that there are ducks that frequent this park, so your dog needs to have a good recall in case ducks are on their fetching list. If your dog isn’t a fan of dog parks, he can still enjoy Sparks Marina Park which has a great walking trail for the two of you to appreciate. If visiting, stay at the Western Inn Village and Casino, which offers some pet friendly rooms for a fee and refundable deposit.

Longford Park is a nice little shaded area with a creek running through that your pup will just love to explore. Church Park is an open green space with few trees that is perfect for a good run!

The West University neighborhood in Reno, which is about 10 minutes from Sparks, houses the Whitaker Dog Park. Whitaker Dog Park is a pawsome off-leash park that is fenced in and includes some great amenities for you and your pup. While Fido is off frolicking with his friends, enjoy the picnic tables, benches, shade trees, and mutt-mitt dispensers that Whitaker Dog Park offers. The only downside to this park is it is located by a freeway, so loud trucks driving by might startle your pup. Once you and your pup are done at the park, check out Wild River Grille. This restaurant is a great place to relax with your dog and enjoy the Truckee River while eating amazing seafood or short ribs.

Adventuring with your pup can be a fun activity, and Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest just southwest of Sparks is a perfect adventure spot for the two of you. Explore this national forest, which allows your dog to be off-leash, and hike the desert trails with your best friend. Be cautious, because sometimes the sand in this national forest can be warm and hurt your dog’s paws. Make sure to bring plenty of water since there won’t be any available. Be sure to snap some Instagram worthy photos of your pup while you enjoy this amazing experience with your dog. If you want to practice kayaking with your pup, Sand Harbor, which is in the forest, is the perfect spot to take Fido to try it out.
