Hi, new to the forum. My name is Marty. I'm in Westchester County Ny. I'm moving to Valencia with my dog Maddie in about a month. She's a 5 or 6 yr. old kelpie cross. A kind of black and tan border collie type. Here she has a huge backyard where she runs off leash and we spend every day for about 3 or 4 hours at a nearby fenced in dog park. I'm also a dog walker so we have many dogs with us. Because I'm the park's photographer, our canine activities are well documented on my website if you wanna see Maddie etc: just the word "dotfur" in google will get you there.
All I can find so far about Valencia and dogs is that they are now banned entirely all the time from the beaches. Sad, 'cause I figured okay: we won't wondering through the woods anymore but we will be romping up and down the beach. Uh uh. My brother who lives in Madrid is buying proerty in Valencia to rent out to students and wants me to come run the scene there. So, I think we will be in a cosmopolitan area near the university: traffic, sidewalks, etc.
Anybody know ANYTHING about the life of a dog in Valencia: parks, fenced in dog parks, dogs walking off leash along the sidewalk with their owner, other Dogs-In-Spain forums, the dog walker scene - in case I want to try my hand over there, dogs on the metro, dogs on buses?
Any information would be helpful. What a great site.
