Hi there! I'm Kalena and I'm new to the Portland area. I grew up with dogs and I have always loved them, and I also love exercise! I was a volunteer at the local shelter in Colorado and walked dogs all the time. Now being here, I am excited to meet new dogs and get them out for some outside time. I have experience and am comfortable walking all breeds and I can't wait to meet you and your best friend!

First, a dog joke - "What type of market should you NEVER take your dog?" - "A FLEA MARKET" :) Well, howdy there! My name is Nat and I am passionate about dad jokes and dogs! Nice to meet you! About me: *I am experienced*: I have 20+ years experience working and living with dogs. When I was a child my parents rescued/fostered dogs and I helped look after them and cultivated a deep passion for animals. I have experience taking care of my own dogs (Chili and Chloe) and I look after my friends animals whenever I can. *I have flexible availability*: I recently moved to Austin and have flexible availability with capability to work overnight, weekends, early mornings + short term notice. I am particularly interested and available to work extended overnight stays and have OPEN availability during the holidays. *I am intentional and professional*: I provide compassionate and tender care + basic training in obedience and healthy boundary setting. *I lead an active lifestyle and work in the outdoor industry*: In my free time I lead backpacking trips for teens in California, I hike, run and rock climb. I work as an Outdoor Experiential Educator with teens/young adults and love being outside! *I love all dogs*: If you have a highly energetic dog, I'm your gal to look after them as I love to tire them out - I'm happy to take them on runs! If your dog likes to snooze, I'm there for them too :) I am reliable and committed and cannot wait to meet your doggie child!
Hi! I'm Robin, I am a Portland State University student who really likes dogs and would love to spend some time with them while also getting some exercise for myself! I'm probably best for smaller dogs, or very nice larger dogs! I live on campus and there are some lovely park blocks right here that would be perfect for walking dogs, if they are in that area.
Dog dad, love dogs and all animals so much! I would love to walk your pup or pups! I’m very paitent with dogs because I know a new person can be scary, I enjoy getting to know the dogs I’m lucky enough to meet and walk. Have had a lot of experience walking dogs and I just love it, my little girl loves walks and loves to make friends too!
Hi! My name is Ryan. My love of dogs started early in life. By the time I was 17 I was doing service work vaccinating dogs abroad. Throughout my college years I worked regularly with several families to care for their dogs, cats and homes while they travelled. Over the past 14 years, I’ve provided long term care to my own special needs dog as well as a high energy GSP mix that’s my nearly constant companion.
I absolutely adore dogs, and have for as long as I can remember! I dog sit very frequently for family and friends, oftentimes I spend weeks with their dogs making sure that they are feed, walked, and most importantly happy! I became a Wag! Walker to have to opportunity to meet and spend time with more great pups!
