The Bakersfield Dog Kennel Alternative

Bakersfield is more country than city -- agriculture and oil, Merle Haggard and Buck Owens. But the good ole boys (and the other 800,000 metro-area residents) love their dogs... and pet sitting and home dog boarding. Bakersfield has repurposed many water retention ponds into dog parks, and pet sitters frequent favorites such as Kroll Park east of downtown, San Lauren off Rosedale Highway, University Park in the northeast and Centennial Park just north of Stockdale Highway. Kern River County Park's 1,012 acres offer plenty of room to roam, and dog sitters ensure leashed pets stay clear of the waters of the adjacent river and Lake Ming. DogVacay.com connects pet families with reliable dog sitters in Bakersfield.

Bakersfield provides myriad pet friendly patio restaurant choices, befitting a climate that averages 108 90-degree days annually. However, pets aren't welcome at Owens' Crystal Palace (a Branson-style music hall playing the "Bakersfield Sound" of steel guitars) and pet sitters will steer Fido away from even more ear-splitting attractions, Bakersfield Speedway and Famoso drag strip. If you're headed indoors or to the track, home dog boarding is a popular option. Listen up: DogVacay.com is the place to find pet sitting and dog sitting hosts in Bakersfield.
