Hi there! My name is Sabrina and I have always had a deep passion for animals. I love to work with them in any way that I can and I especially love dogs! I've had my own pup (Gracie Lou) for over 10 years now and I regularly volunteer with animal organizations in my free time. I've had the pleasure of working with a wide range of dogs with varying needs over many years. I truly love and appreciate all animals for who they are. I currently am pursuing a career in animal energy healing and take a calm loving approach with all of the animals I see. My ultimate goal is to love your pupper with lots of positive energy and make sure they are safe, happy, and healthy! Some notes on my walking style: I typically use a sturdy leash with an added traffic handle and LED light for added safety, I use eco-friendly compostable poop bags, and all pups will receive some TLC and water at the end of our walk!

“Green-haired friend to every pet!”

I walk and care for dogs / pets professionally for 14+ years. I’ve loved animals all my life! As a kid I would go knock on my neighbors’ doors and ask to walk their dogs for fun, which led me to pet-sitting and dog-walking jobs and volunteering with my local animal shelter. To every service I bring a can do attitude, knowledge gained from a degree in animal behavior and physiology, and first aid certification just in case. I'm fit, friendly, and would love to be your dog's new pal!

Dog Walking in Happy Valley

Happy Valley is a small city of just over eight square miles, nestled in Clackamas County. This lovely town sits on the southeastern slope of Mount Scott, a dormant volcano as well as the city’s highest point. This neighborhood is part of the Portland Metropolis, voted the “most dog-friendly area” in the US by several publications. There are three vets within 10 miles of Happy Valley, including an animal hospital that's open six days a week. The eight parks within five miles of Happy Valley ensure your pet always has plenty of options for his evening walk. 

One convenient doggy-approved destination is Happy Valley Park, conveniently located near the heart of Happy Valley. This impressive off-leash dog park is comprised of two sections for small and large breeds, as well as an integrated section for a more cosmopolitan vibe. The bark park is part of a larger recreational area that hosts a variety of activities for its guests. There is a three-quarter mile walking loop, a sports complex, and a playground for the little ones. For his safety, make sure Fido stays leashed when outside of the off-leash zone.

Atamount Park is a quaint park with jaw-dropping views. This 4.6-acre recreation area was built on the highest point in the city. The high elevation gives the park its incredible viewpoint of Mount Saint Helens and downtown Portland. Leashed pups are welcome, but make sure you bring waste bags for your furry friend.

Happy Valley boasts six dog-friendly eateries, with a variety of offerings to sate any appetite. A morning and lunchtime favorite is the Biscuit Café. The café has four fur-iendly tables and offers brunch favorites such as scratch-made biscuits, eggs Benedict, and burgers. This casual spot is a hit with the local pups and offers vegetarian and gluten-free options for the health-conscious.

 The Sandy River Delta Recreation Area is a half-hour drive east of Happy Valley but is definitely worth the trip. Fittingly nicknamed “Thousand Acre Park”, this enormous expanse offers over 1,000 acres of off-leash hiking, biking, and equestrian trails. Local pups love the pawportunity to frolic leash-free on the shoreline and cool their tired paws in the scenic Sandy River. The Sandy River makes an exceptional spot for fishing and is home to many species such as salmon, steelhead, and bass. The park is known to get muddy, so come prepared with towels for your furry friend. After you get cleaned up, head over to Troutini, a casual fine-dining eatery that loves its four-legged guests. This place is truly exceptional with offerings such as pan-seared diver scallops with a saffron puree. This place will leave you both drooling!
