“Trust is a must! Pets are Family!”

Pets have always been part of the family, and as part of your family I take seriously my responsibility to care for your fur baby. I realize each pet is unique and I desire to give personalized care to each. Life is busy, and as much as having a dog makes a house a home, at times it may be hard to give the amount of attention and pampering to our pets that we wish we could, while still caring for the home. I would love to be there for you in a time of need or just to spoil and love your dog.

“Onward Balto!...--now your leash is tangled... :)”

Arf! *wags* Hello, fellow human. My name is Cody and I'm an experienced care handler for animals of all different shapes and sizes. Woof! By combining my three favorite things; dogs, the outdoors, and occasional acapella serenades, I might subject your fur baby to an assortment of random musical culture and enriching exercise. Consider this the private school of dog walking.

Dog Boarding in Salem

Lucky is the dog who lives in Salem, Oregon. Situated in the Willamette Valley near the Willamette River, the area is abundant with services, activities, parks, trails, events, and locations that are dog-friendly. The oppawtunities for enjoying quality time with your canine are so extensive that Salem, Oregon has been named as one of the top dog-friendly cities in the country!

The Willamette Humane Society provides extensive services that include pet adoptions, training classes, a youth program, end of life services, and neuter/spay service. Founded by three women who felt pets deserved a better option than the local dog pound, the shelter started in 1969 with limited capacity. By 2014, 1,317 dogs came to them with over 90% going to homes! Their education program includes topics like ”Fido’s Holiday Survival Guide” and “Family Manners” - training us to be better owners. The society's monthly lecture series,  PETtalks, addresses issues such as laws, the human-dog bond, and dog behavior. 

The organization partners with local businesses and community events. The largest event of the year is “Bowser’s Boo Bash” held around Halloween with costumes, food, fun, and entertainment. Kick off the season of giving with a shopping trip to the Thrift Store Holiday Bazaar. The WillaMutt Strut in June is a 5K run or 1K strut for kids, families, owners and dogs, culminating in a pawty with food and entertainment! Dog games include activities like “My Dog Would Eat That”. September brings “Yappy Hour” with Salem’s best food trucks and an outdoor party including food, beer, and play areas for the dogs. There is also Mutts on the Mile, another chance to join with others to walk and raise funds.
