“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 Bend

Bend is a nature lover’s paradise that’s surrounded by awe-inspiring, mountainous terrain. Be sure to remember your hiking boots and some extra water for your pup, as chances are you’ll be spending much of your time outdoors during a visit to Bend. If you’re looking for a home-base on your Bend vacation, The Riverhouse Hotel is a pet-friendly option which allows animals of any size, in all rooms, for no additional charge.

If you’d like to get a taste for some of the famous Bend scenery, take a hike down the Metolius River Trail, a twelve-mile hike in Deschutes National Forest that takes about six hours to complete on average. Horses, mountain bikes, and cyclocross are not allowed on the trail, so you and your pup can enjoy an uninterrupted stroll along the river.

After your outdoor adventure, check out 10 Barrel for tasty burgers, sandwiches, pizza, and craft beer. Pets are allowed, and even suggested, to join in on the fun on the outdoor patio whether it's snow or shine; the patio features a toasty fire pit for those colder Bend nights. Once you've worn down your pup check-in at the OXFORD Hotel. The OXFORD is pet-friendly, extremely highly rated, and even has a french press so you can wake up and start the next day with plenty of energy. You’ll have a hard time heading back home after visiting this picturesque Oregon City, so be sure to savor the magnificent views while you’re in town!

If you’re in the neighborhood of Pine Nursery, you’re in for a treat! This neighborhood has two dog parks to choose from. Pine Nursery Dog Park is possibly one of the best dog parks in the state.

If you want to continue the adventure on-leash, there are more walking paths, tennis courts and a playground in the surrounding Pine Nursery Park. If you continue Southeast in the Pine Nursery neighborhood, you’ll also find the Big Sky Dog Park inside of Big Sky Park. The dog park features a 3 acre double-gated fenced in area for your dog to romp around off-leash, and 90 acres of walking trails and ponds to explore on-leash are available in the larger surrounding park. Both dog parks include the necessary amenities, such as water fountains for two-legged and four-legged types, free clean up bags, and restrooms.

You can let your pup run, rinse and repeat all day. Waste bags and drinking water are available. After all that fresh air and exercise, you and your doggo won’t need to go far for a snack.

Whether you want to leisurely float down the river in a tube, or rent a kayak, canoe or stand-up paddleboard, your dog can join in on the fun! You won’t fall through because the tubes have handles and netting. Don’t forget the doggy life jacket! After working up an appetite, head south along the river to Anthony’s at the Old Mill District. You can enjoy great mountain views of Mt. Bachelor and the Three Sisters while seated at one of the outdoor dog friendly tables.

In Western Bend, you’ll be able to find tons of snow-play opportunities. The Wanoga Snow Play Area offers snowshoeing and skiing while your dog is off-leash. The park contains motorized and non-motorized trails that allow you and your pup to romp around in the snow, while enjoying the breathtaking views. Your dog can stay off-leash on the trails, but needs to be leashed on the sledding hills, snow-parks and parking lots. If you keep heading west, you’ll find Mt. Bachelor. The Mt. Bachelor Ski Resort has a dog park too, so your pooch doesn’t need to feel left out from the winter fun. This safe, off-leash dog park features a groomed snow-play area. There are biodegradable clean up bags and waste bins available.
