Hello, my name is Jenna. The loves of my life are my French bulldog, Commander Moostache, and my Pomeranian Pekingese mix, Fizgig. One of my best furiends is a pit bull named Bezzle. When his companions are out of town we suit up and go on adventures. They receive pictures and text updates of his venture. I also volunteered at the local animal shelter while I was in college.

“Happy to walk all breeds, all day, in all weather!”

I am a firm believer that a well-exercised, socialized dog is a happy dog! I love being outside in all weather to help dogs get the exercise and socialization they need so that they can rest comfortably while you are away from them. I am a mother to four active boys who are all in school, so my schedule is very flexible. I am reliable, loyal and will love on your dog the whole time I am with them. I am a lover of Annie, our goldendoodle, and take her running, walking and hiking everyday.

Hello! I used to walk for WAG! full-time, in the Seattle area, before COVID emerged last March. I miss it it so much! I am originally from New York. I grew up with a black Golden Doodle called Lyla. She's not around anymore; but, my sister has a Doodle now (Rey) and my parents have an adorable Bernadoodle puppy, all to themselves (Bella)! I'm hoping to pick up a few walks in the Eugene/Springfield area.

Dog Walking in Dexter

Dexter is an unincorporated community in Lane County. Since it is located right next to the Dexter Reservoir, this small town sees a lot of visitors. Folks flock to the lake to enjoy fishing, swimming, and boating. There are also miles of trails for adventure loving pups. If your pal needs to see a doctor while in Dexter, you’ll have to travel 10 minutes north to Pleasant Hill for the nearest veterinary clinic.  

When in Dexter, you’ve got to visit the Elijah Bristow State Park. Named after one of the first settlers in the area, this furrific park stretches across 847-acres. Venture down one of the hiking trails with your leashed pup. There are six different trails to choose from that range between one to five miles, so you can choose one that suits your pup’s athletic abilities. Since the trails weave in and out of meadows, woodlands, and wetlands, your dog will get a healthy dose of nature. This area is also home to bald eagles, turtles, and beaver.

If your pooch is itching for some time off leash, the Elijah Bristow State Park also has a designated off leash area. After a hike or a day by the river, stop by this informal dog park so your pooch can socialize with peers and get even more tuckered out.

With endless opportunities for fun in the sun, Dexter is one puptastic place!

The Dexter State Recreation Site is the perfect place to spend some quality time with your furry sidekick, especially if you have a water loving pooch on your hands. This pawsome park is nestled on the banks of Dexter Reservoir and has a boat launch. If you decide to take your pal out on the lake, make sure to bring a doggy life jacket. If boating isn’t your pup’s favorite thing, stay on land and walk through the groves of white oak or find a peaceful spot on the shore and soak up sun. Pack a sandwich, and some treats for your dog, and stick around for lunch. Enjoy views of the Cascade hills while you gobble down your food.

The Jasper State Recreation Site sits on the banks of the Middle Fork Willamette River.  Located in Pleasant Hill, this beautiful open space is just a 10 minute drive from Dexter. Your adventure loving pup will have a grand old time sniffing around the grass area of this riverfront park, or wandering through the nature trails. If your pal would rather ditch the leash and run free, head over to the designated off leash area. There’s plenty of room for romping and wrestling with new playmates, or just trotting around solo. This park also has amazing picnic facilities with covered cooking areas, sinks, and plenty of tables. So bring the whole fam and have a pawty!

The Lowell State Recreation Site sits just across Dexter Reservoir in Lowell. It about 10 minutes from Dexter, and is a great alternative to the Dexter State Recreation Site. It’s slightly smaller, but features a playground, sport courts, and picnic facilities. There’s also a marina and plenty of fishing access. Water loving dogs can go for a dip in the lake or tag along for a boat ride. If your pal wants to keep all four paws on land, take a stroll around the large fields or check out the trails in the park’s wooded section. Since it can be pretty hot during the summer, be sure to keep your pooch well hydrated.

Clearwater Park and Landing is a furrific park located in the southern part of Springfield. It’s about 20 minutes from Dexter, and sits on the banks of the Middle Fork Willamette River. During the dog days of summer, find a mellow section of the river and let your pup go for a refreshing swim. There are also various trails for walking, and large green areas for sniffing. If your pup has energy to burn, follow the Middle Fork Path. It runs parallel to the river and heads four miles west to Dorris Ranch. Be sure to bring water and clean up bags.

If your pooch is a tree hugger, schedule a trip to the Mount Pisgah Arboretum. Located in Eugene, this wooded haven is less than 20 minutes from Dexter. The 209-acre park is chock full of Douglas fir, cedar, maple, and Oregon ash trees. There are a few different trails to choose from ranging from under half a mile to 1.5 miles. Your four legged friend can commune with nature while meandering through meadows, savannahs, and forests. While you’re out on the trails, make time to stop and smell the wildflowers and keep your eyes open for mushrooms. And, as always, remember to bring water and clean up bags.
