“Travel Writer Who Loves Dogs!”

Hi there! I'm a travel writer who is now "settling down" in Bend. I absolutely loved walking my dog, Dylan, along the Deschutes River Trail & taking him to Pine Nursery Park ~ but unfortunately, he passed away in February, and I’m terribly missing my daily walks with him. While I'm not ready for a new dog yet, I am missing animal love in my life & am looking forward to meeting many new wonderful dogs here in Bend, & sharing with them my love for the great outdoors!

I first starting caring for animals in my neighborhood, but quickly moved on to working for dog boarding facilities where walks alone were 75% of the job! I’ve had dogs my entire life, but my current Golden Retriever just passed away so I’ve been fostering dogs now! I’ve been working for wildlife sanctuaries, rescues, and zoos since I finished college. Currently, I work at a local vet clinic.

Hello there! My name is Julia. I’ve grown up raising dogs my whole life! Sadly they have all passed away now. Now I love to share my love of walking and being outdoors with friendly pups. Placing your dog(s) in my care means- unleashing your pets energy and potential in a safe manner, and being cared for as best as they can be. I understand different dogs have different personalities and needs and I promise to treat each one like the furry Kings and Queens they are!

“Loving all dogs big and small.”

My name is Timothy Johnson and dogs mean the world to me. While growing up I had many furry friends to take care of and I have owned two dogs of my own. My best friend Lilly was an 8 year old, red nose Pitbull that was completely deaf. Lilly taught me how to train a dog with health conditions, and how to deal with food aggression. My apartment does not allow dogs, but through Wag, I would love to become best friends with your furry family member!

Dog Walking in Alfalfa

Named for the type of legume that flourishes in area farmers’ plethora of crops, Alfalfa is a small rural community about 16 miles east of Bend. Alfalfa has beautiful surroundings, with lush, irrigated fields making up most of the area, and dramatic views of the Cascade Mountains on the horizon.

While Alfalfa is without any fur-iendly parks, some of Central Oregon’s most pristine and pawsome green spaces, along with 20 veterinary clinics, can be found just a short drive away in Bend! On Bend’s east side, you and Fido will have a blast visiting Big Sky Park. This beautiful 97-acre park has a puptacular fully fenced-in off-leash area that features walking trails that wind around mature trees, picnic tables, a water spigot and portable restrooms. There are cleanup bags at the entrance to the off-leash area as well as throughout the rest of this woofderful park. It’s understandably a pawpular area for pup playtime!

Worthy Brewing is another must-visit pet-friendly hangout on Bend’s east side! Leashed dogs are welcome to join you on the spacious patio area while you enjoy wood-fired pizza, steelhead tacos, and of course, some of Bend’s most delicious craft beer. 

With puptastic views and so many pawsome amenities just a few miles away, Alfalfa is grrrreat!
