Hi there! My name is Sabrina and I have always had a deep passion for animals. I love to work with them in any way that I can and I especially love dogs! I've had my own pup (Gracie Lou) for over 10 years now and I regularly volunteer with animal organizations in my free time. I've had the pleasure of working with a wide range of dogs with varying needs over many years. I truly love and appreciate all animals for who they are. I currently am pursuing a career in animal energy healing and take a calm loving approach with all of the animals I see. My ultimate goal is to love your pupper with lots of positive energy and make sure they are safe, happy, and healthy! Some notes on my walking style: I typically use a sturdy leash with an added traffic handle and LED light for added safety, I use eco-friendly compostable poop bags, and all pups will receive some TLC and water at the end of our walk!

“Green-haired friend to every pet!”

I walk and care for dogs / pets professionally for 14+ years. I’ve loved animals all my life! As a kid I would go knock on my neighbors’ doors and ask to walk their dogs for fun, which led me to pet-sitting and dog-walking jobs and volunteering with my local animal shelter. To every service I bring a can do attitude, knowledge gained from a degree in animal behavior and physiology, and first aid certification just in case. I'm fit, friendly, and would love to be your dog's new pal!

Dog Boarding in Portland

Portland regularly features near the pointy end of lists of the most dog-friendly cities in America, and it’s not hard to see why. This beautiful city in the Pacific Northwest boasts a plethora of off-leash dog parks, pet-friendly eateries, and relaxing dog walks, making it one of the best places to own a dog anywhere in the US!

 And because Portland is a dog lover’s paradise, it’s also home to plenty of wonderful rescue groups willing to go the extra mile to help out pets in need. Family Dogs New Life Shelter is one of these tail-waggingly good organizations, and it’s helped more than 12,000 dogs find a forever home since it was founded in 2004. With a commitment to rescue dogs of all ages, breeds, and backgrounds, Family Dogs New Life is a non-profit that pays particular attention to matching the pets it rescues with the perfect owners.

Oregon Dog Rescue (ODR) is another no-kill shelter serving the greater Portland area. Established in 2007, it’s a non-profit organization that rescues dogs from overcrowded local shelters, from high-kill shelters up and down the West Coast, and from families who can no longer care for them. Its Tualatin facility can house up to 60 dogs at a time, and ODR relies on 1 full-time employee, 6 part-time employees, and a tireless network of 25 volunteers to help dogs in need!

Pugs are cute, cheeky, and full of personality, and they’re also central to one of Portland’s most popular dog-friendly events. The annual Portland Pug Crawl, which benefits the Oregon Humane Society, is perfect for any pooch living the Pug life. Not only can humans sample a few brews, but they can also enjoy all the hilarious fun of the Pug Parade. Past themes have included Star Wars and Pugs on Broadway, so the costumes are always a sight to behold. And while the parade is open to Pugs and Pug mixes only, all other dog-friendly pooches are welcome.
