“Taking care of your dog, one walk at a time!”

My name is Laurie and I’ve taken care of dogs my whole life. I am an experienced sitter who you can trust to take amazing care of your pup. I take any all opportunities to play cuddle and go on fun adventures with dogs. I have been told me I’m a dog whisperer! I have had many beloved pets growing up, including; cats, dogs, guinea pigs, rabbits, fish, parakeets, cockatiels, lizards, and hamsters. Currently, I have a 10 year old energetic (still!) yellow lab terrier mix and love going on adventures with her. Some of my hobbies are card making, scrapbooking, reading, gardening and volunteering at the shelter.

Dog Walking in Hurricane

Hurricane is midsized city in Washington County. The name may seem strange since this town is located in the desert of Southern Utah, but back in the mid-19th century, a group of surveyors were traveling through the area when a whirlwind blew the top of their buggy off. The joke was made that a hurricane had passed through, and the name stuck. Today, this semi-rural community is known for its pecan and peach farms, and close proximity to pawsome outdoor recreation.

While Hurricane has a plethora of city parks, unfurtanately dogs are only allowed at Grandpa’s Pond. The name may throw you off a bit, but this is actually a traditional park with open space and a playground. Like the name suggests, it sits on the shore of a small fishing pond. Canine visitors must be leashed and can only walk along the paved walking paths. But your pal shouldn’t worry; they’ll still get to enjoy the desert views and blue sky as they enjoy a nice workout. Picnic tables are also available, so pack a sandwich and stay for lunch.

With two vets in town, beautiful scenery, and a welcoming rural atmosphere, Hurricane is a furrific place to raise a four legged family member!

The Sand Hollow State Park perfectly showcases Southern Utah’s notorious beauty. You could easily spend the whole day here and your pooch wouldn’t mind. The 20,000 acre park’s main feature is the Sand Hollow Reservoir. Watch for signs indicating where dogs are allowed on the beaches. Red sand dunes and sandstone bluffs draw out the equestrians and off road vehicles. As you wander around the terrain, watch for fellow trail users in all their forms.  Since snakes and scorpions live in these parts, it’s a good idea to keep your pal away from bushes. At the end of the day, your pup’s paws may be tinted red by the sand but they’ll have had a puptastic time!

Since Hurricane has such heavy restrictions for dogs in city parks, it’s a good thing local canines have access to the Hurricane Dog Park. Dogs of all shapes and sizes come to this two acre off leash area to let loose and run free. Your furry friend can dart and dash around with new playmates, or chase a ball in a game of fetch. Passive and small dogs even have their own section to play. The terrain is a combination of grass and dirt, so your pup may have dusty paws when it’s time to go home. Water is available and a couple benches are provided for pet parents. Sounds furrific!

If your pup feels like hitting the trails, head over to Gould’s Rim Trailhead and get hiking. This trail is on the southern end of the Hurricane Cliffs Trail System and is just over three miles long. Let your pooch be the guide as you make your way through the breath taking scenery. Enjoy 360° views of red rock mesas against the bright blue sky. For a longer hike, head three miles east to Jem Trailhead. Since this is the Mojave Desert, it’s a good idea to test the sand before starting out. Remember, if it’s too hot for your hand, it’s too hot for your pup’s paws.

If Confluence Park isn’t on your pup’s barket list, it should be. The southern entrance to this gorgeous park can be found just minutes north of Hurricane in the neighboring town of LaVerkin. Named after the confluence of Ash Creek, LaVerkin Creek, and the Virgin River, it is tucked away at the base of basaltic lava cliffs. Follow the Confluence Trail, then connect with the Virgin River Trail for a pawsome four mile hike. Your pooch must be leashed at all times and stay on the trail since there are a variety of ruins scattered throughout the park. Also, keep your eyes open for wildlife; deer, beaver, fox, and snakes all call this place home.
