Hello my name is Neil. I am a full time student, and enjoy being outside along with spending time with dogs. Sadly I am no longer a dog owner, so I like to take every chance I get to interact with them.

Hi, I'm David and I have passion for all four legged friends but especially dogs. I have raised 4 dogs in my life and currently have 2 at home. Peanut is my Lab/Pit mix that was rescued in California and Louie is a terrier chihuahua mix. I am confident walking and socializing all breeds, sizes and energy levels! I am always on time and professional and try to custom tailor my walks to your dog as much as possible. I am happy to accommodate most special requests and love repeat customers!

“Travel Writer Who Loves Dogs!”
Hi there! I'm a travel writer who is now "settling down" in Bend. I absolutely loved walking my dog, Dylan, along the Deschutes River Trail & taking him to Pine Nursery Park ~ but unfortunately, he passed away in February, and I’m terribly missing my daily walks with him. While I'm not ready for a new dog yet, I am missing animal love in my life & am looking forward to meeting many new wonderful dogs here in Bend, & sharing with them my love for the great outdoors!

I first starting caring for animals in my neighborhood, but quickly moved on to working for dog boarding facilities where walks alone were 75% of the job! I’ve had dogs my entire life, but my current Golden Retriever just passed away so I’ve been fostering dogs now! I’ve been working for wildlife sanctuaries, rescues, and zoos since I finished college. Currently, I work at a local vet clinic.

Hello there! My name is Julia. I’ve grown up raising dogs my whole life! Sadly they have all passed away now. Now I love to share my love of walking and being outdoors with friendly pups. Placing your dog(s) in my care means- unleashing your pets energy and potential in a safe manner, and being cared for as best as they can be. I understand different dogs have different personalities and needs and I promise to treat each one like the furry Kings and Queens they are!
“Loving all dogs big and small.”
My name is Timothy Johnson and dogs mean the world to me. While growing up I had many furry friends to take care of and I have owned two dogs of my own. My best friend Lilly was an 8 year old, red nose Pitbull that was completely deaf. Lilly taught me how to train a dog with health conditions, and how to deal with food aggression. My apartment does not allow dogs, but through Wag, I would love to become best friends with your furry family member!

Bend, OR is a mecca for dogs and those who love them, boasting a plethora of dog-friendly events and activities! In fact, Dog Fancy Magazine has named Bend the #1 Most Dog-Friendly City in the country!
The city and surrounding area have one major rescue organization, the Humane Society of Central Oregon. This nonprofit strives to serve the companion animals and communities of Bend and strengthen the animal-human bond through their compassionate care and advocacy. In operation since 1961, the organization offers services including homeless animal care/shelter, a lost and found pet reporting system, animal rehoming, county dog licensing, humane animal treatment education, spay/neuter assistance, shelter presentations, a Pet Visiting Program, and owner-requested euthanasia. Whenever possible, animals in need are placed in foster homes until they are adopted to a responsible, loving family.
Every year, the Humane Society of Central Oregon provides loving care to more than 4,000 abandoned, lost, abused, and neglected companion animals. The shelter has an extensive network of volunteers that help make their efforts possible through animal training, grooming, and enrichment as well as assistance with the veterinary clinic and shelter operations. They also offer youth and community outreach programs, educating Bend on animal welfare, pet care, overpopulation, bite prevention, animal careers, and choosing the right pet for you. Through their extensive efforts over more than 50 years, the Humane Society of Central Oregon has made the animals and communities of Bend, OR happier, safer, and healthier.
This annual festival for pets and their people gathers at the beautiful Riverbend Park. Come on down for a fun day chock full of live music, food, adoptable animals, demonstrations, pet vendors and services, contests, prizes, and even a beer garden, all in support of Brightside Animal Center! The day of celebrating our beloved companions is kicked off with a dog-friendly 5K followed by a 1.3K Walk-a-thon. The 5K registration fee even includes a cool t-shirt for you and a bandana for your dog! Dogs must be leashed and have proof of rabies vaccination.
This scenic, dog-friendly trail is an easy 12-mile out-and-back hike within the Deschutes National Forest. You should set aside around six hours to complete this exciting outdoor excursion with your dog. The trail is fairly flat and follows the river along the base of Black Butte. The sudden springs and oasis-like riverbank will be such a treat for your dear doggo! As mountain bikes and horses are prohibited, rest assured this trail is both safe and relaxing. Take your best furry pal to this trail for some exercise and a refreshing dip!
You and your pooch have got to check out this dog park, it's one of the best that Bend has to offer! Pine Nursery Park really has it all, including an 18.8-acre fenced off-leash area with various trails and paths, dog and people water fountains, free poop bags, large grassy fields, a seasonal doggie splash pad, and even a human bathroom! Outside of the designated off-leash areas, there are plenty of opportunities for walking your leashed pet on scenic paths and around the beautiful, manmade lake. Pine Nursery Park may even be one of the best doggie havens in the state of Oregon!
Riverbend Park, also known as Dog Park Beach, is the perfect place to take your pal for a dip! The 1.1-acre fenced off-leash area includes access to the Deschutes River and a separate small-dog area. The space is fully fenced on both the dog park end and the river end with a path in between to provide dogs river access. Your pup can run and play with friends, swim in the river, run around some more to dry off, dip in the refreshing river once again, and repeat as many times as necessary until you have a very happy, tired doggo. There are even trails along the river and throughout the rest of Riverbend Park where you can take your leashed pets for a stroll!
Located right smack in the middle of Bend, this brewery is the perfect place to relax with your canine companion after a long day of fun! They offer 20+ of their own craft beers brewed right on site! The dog-friendly brewery has a spacious outdoor dining area to accommodate your pal adjacent to a large field for frolicking. They even provide plenty of water dishes for your four-legged friend! Sip a brew on the patio in the evening and soak in the incredible panoramic view of the Cascade Mountains, providing one of the most amazing sunsets in Central Oregon.
