Modesto is Spanish for "modest," a world that might appear to aptly describe the dog-friendly aspects of this agriculture-centric city of 200,000. However, a park dedicated to pooches that pet sitters brag about was built in 2012 -- Modesto Dog Park at Elk Park is a 1-acre beauty with full amenities. Modesto is a pleasant community for pets, a little hot in summer (average temperature: 95 degrees), and dog sitters know the businesses welcome to pets such as Sonic Drive-In, Baja Fresh patios and the Harvest Moon restaurant downtown. Downtown is the place for pet sitters to parade pups the third Thursdays of the month for Art Walk. A Five Points attraction for pet sitting is George Lucas Plaza, with an "American Graffiti"-inspired statue for the movie that was set in Modesto. DogVacay.com knows Modesto and connects pet families with reliable dog sitting and home dog boarding services.
Dog sitters motor to Caswell Memorial State Park at nearby Ripon, a natural-habitat escape where pets are allowed on leash but not on trails. You can drive up the road to Knights Ferry to raft the Stanislaus River, but dogs aren't allowed so leave them with a trusted pet sitter. See also: the wineries of Ernest & Julio Gallo (corporate headquarters are in Modesto) and the Modesto Nuts (ballpark of the local minor-league baseball team). You'll find DogVacay.com offers reliable, convenient solutions for home dog boarding and pet sitting in Modesto.
