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.

““Everything I know, I learned from dogs.” -Nora R.”

Greetings! I can’t wait to meet you and your dog. I am a dancer building my career in L.A., and I love to spend time out in nature in my time off. I grew up spending lots of time with my own boisterous four-legged friend. Making sure he was happy, healthy, and loved was very important to me. It’s a privilege to provide this same care for your dog and return them home from a walk happy and well-exercised!

The Albany off-leash dog park is located at the Timber-Linn Memorial Park and consists of three separate areas: an area for small dogs, an area of large dogs and an area for dogs that do not mingle or socialize well with other dogs - hey, we all need that space sometimes! The park is well-maintained and offers waste bags, waste stations, water fountains and benches.

People that visit Albany, Oregon, with pets have multiple hotels to choose from. The La Quinta Inn, Phoenix Inn Suites, Comfort Suites, Best Western Plus and Holiday Inn Express all allow pets to some extent or with an extra charge.
