    My name is Cole! I have two dogs of my own, Payten and Charlie, and we all enjoy going to the dog park together and walking through the pet store! I also have experience volunteering as a dog walker at local humane societies. I'd be happy to process some reasonable requests (i.e. take dogs to dog park or car ride) depending on the situation. I can't wait to meet your furry family member!

    Hello, I am a 25-year-old travel nurse looking to spend some quality time with your pup! I have a love for dogs and hate to see them cooped up inside. I used to be a private dog walker for Golden retriever/mutt named "Buddy" for almost 3 years. In that time we would take frequent trips to the local dog park, where Buddy could run around, cool off in the creek, and play fetch! It was a delight to see how happy it made Buddy be outside, enjoying what he does best! I also have experience dog sitting for a Beagle named "Winston" who has special needs (being quite anxious at times) due to his unfortunate past with not so friendly owners. Lastly, I have experience sitting a Maltese named "Rookie." He is a friendly little lap dog, who requires frequent bathroom breaks and attention. I owned two dogs growing up, (golden retriever/lab mix) named "Rocky" and "Sandy", and my parents encouraged me to provide all the care for them. I learned at an early age the huge responsibility it is to have an animal and I can appreciate how much care and attention they deserve.

    “Pawsitively the best fur your animal!”

    I enjoy working with children and animals! I have been babysitting for 13 years. I am fun, honest, respectful, and responsible. I have two dogs and one cat. I love all types of animals. If I wasn't an elementary educator then I would be a veterinarian. Growing up I had a family dog, a Bichon Frise, who passed away at 17 years old. I had him since I was 3 1/2 years old. In summer 2010, I got my own dog. He is an Australian Shepard mix. He loves walking, playing, and being pet. He is extremely friendly and well behaved. He took training classes and passed the Canine Good Citizen Award. I sometimes take care of my neighbors dogs or friends, when they leave for vacation, work or family trips. I am looking to make money to pay back my student loans and help provide for my family of 5! I am also trying to work off some baby weight so look forward to taking many walks! Thanks!

    “looking forward to caring for your dogs.”

    Hello, my name is Ryan and I have a passion for dogs and keeping them happy. I currently work as a dog bather at a local salon. I specialize in large dogs and have the patience for dogs that pull or need help with walking on a leash. Dogs tend to behave well with me even if they haven't had luck with others. I look forward to helping care for your dogs.

The wine, Abrazo, meaning "hug" in Spanish, was developed to thank the Cascades Humane Society for rescuing their beloved dog, Rusty. Abrazo is a silky, soft, off-dry red blend with flavors of spicy black cherry, cocoa, black raspberry and a hint of fresh thyme. Bone appetit!
