Hello, My name is Jodi. I grew up with dogs as my constant companions. I have loved animals for as long as I can remember. Recently I have completed three years of dog training through a very well-known company. Within those classes, walking dogs was one the most common request I received from pet parents. I also have been certified in Canine Good Citizen training. While I am walking your dog you will have the peace of mind knowing the walk is with someone who truly cares about your pet and has the training to deal with any unforeseen circumstances along the walk. I welcome the opportunity to help keep your dog a healthy and happy member of your family.

“Let’s go on an adventure!”

I have always loved dogs, all breeds! I have had doggie companions as long as I can remember. I have worked with dogs of all different personalities. I have transported them across the country and back. I believe that they’re all special little souls with their own personalities and needs. I view getting to spend time with these wonderful little beings as a fun adventure. I look forward to meeting and spending time with these wonderful new friends.

I grew up taking care of dogs & cats, & would love to meet yours. I currently have 2 cats & 3 dogs. I really like this job because I can’t get enough of those fur babies - plus they help me get into better shape! I have gotten very good at what I do &, as this is my only job now, I can devote my time to the pups. I go the extra mile to make them happy, including playtime and cuddles. I am also very skilled at drawing & painting them, so feel free to ask if you would like their portrait done.

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.
