Hey there! My name is Shawn and I am absolutely excited to meet your puppy. I have been surrounded by dogs all my life and I have experience with training dogs my family and I have owned. I use a lot of reaffirmation and treats to get the dog excited about training. I am also very aware of dog's having allergies and know exactly how to handle situations of that kind. So please do let me know if yours does.

“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.

Hi, my name is Kathryn and I love dogs. I grew up taking care of them and would love to meet yours. I currently have a cat, but he doesn’t like going on walks. I really like this job because I can get my “puppy fix” and I’m getting into better shape with the best exercise partners there are. This is my only job, so I have gotten very good at what I do and can devote my time to the pups. I go the extra mile to make them happy, including playtime and cuddles.

I was told I would dig up all the rocks when I was a kid so the worms wouldn't crash. My love and care for creatures and animals has always consumed my life! I have always been the go-to when friends and family need their babies taken care of for short and long term. I just lost my 75lb. baby boy who I had the pleasure of spoiling for the last ten years. Because of him I not only gained experience with big dogs, but I have become more in tune with animals in the way a mother does with kids. I will love and protect your baby as I did my Nino.

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.
The Minto-Brown Island Park is a scenic place to play off-leash in the designated dog area. Owners love the open area, but make sure your dog will come when you signal as this park is unfenced. There are also leash trails and river access. The park connects to the Downtown Riverfront Park as well as the Wallace Marine Park. A tail-wagging adventure awaits, complete with walks with your pooch and romps with your human and canine friends!
From April through October, you can browse the booths of the Salem Farmer’s Market - pooch in tow! The market is great for fresh flowers and locally grown vegetables, fruits, homemade goods, crafts and even local dog food! Every other week, there are specially themed events, like pie fruits or how to make preserves. Pet policy requires your pup be on a leash, under control, and friendly. A beautiful, small market, the Salem Farmer's Market allows to stroll around with your dog - who will be most delighted by the sights and smells!
The Keizer Rapids Park and Dog Park is the largest, fenced, off-leash dog park in the area and lies along the Willamette River. It is a non-profit that provides shelters, benches, raised water bowls for the dogs, a drinking fountain, message kiosk, and a year-round ADA portable toilet. There are also playgrounds customized for tots and school-age children. This is easily a play place for the whole family!
Wine clubs are not just for people! Your dog is invited to become a member of the Pinot and Pups Membership Club at the Keeler Vineyards. Membership includes vineyard puppy playdates, an organic dog treat, a bandana, and the chance to become Doggie of the Month on the website. The Keeler Vineyard is a certified biodynamic vineyard located close to Salem in nearby Amity, Oregon. They host an annual Pinot and Pups Wine Auction for Leader Dogs for the Blind. Be sure to check it out. Bone Appetit!
Rogue Farms in nearby Independence, Oregon is very dog-friendly! The hopyard includes play areas for lawn games and walks through the garden to the Willamette River. They sponsor a Frogs and Dogs Festival each September, known as your “friendly, neighborhood” beer festival that includes a dog parade, best trick competition, musical “sit” chairs, a rescue team, and dance party! Sounds like a hoot!
