    Hi! My name is Bill and I have been dog walking with Wag for over 3 years now. Before starting with Wag I volunteered at Austin TX animal shelters for a few years so I am used to being around, and taking care of, all kinds of dogs. Every dog is different and I want to give your dog the attention and care he or she needs. I also really enjoy checking in on your cats as needed. I have recently moved to Salem so I have wide open availability. Thank you!

    “Let’s go on an adventure”

    I have always loved dogs, all breeds! I have had doggie companions as long as I can remember. I have worked with dogs of all different personalities. I have transported them across the country and back. I believe that they’re all special little souls with their own personalities and needs. I view getting to spend time with these wonderful little beings as a fun adventure. I look forward to meeting and spending time with these wonderful new friends.

    Hello, my name is Crystal and my love for animals goes back as far as I can remember. I have had many beloved pets growing up and always knew I wanted to work with animals. I have done pet sitting for several friends and family members and I'm great at reading body language. I'm compassionate, reliable and enthusiastic. I enjoy working with all breeds and promise to treat each pet as my own; they're happiness and safety are my top priority. Communication is always important when it comes to our loved ones. I look forward to working with you and your hairy babies.

    “Aaaaaah the floofer!!”

    I'm a life long dog lover, owner and caretaker. I'm also a professional Singer-Songwriter. My current living circumstances don't allow for me to have a dog of my own so I'm the on call dog sitter and walker for all of my friends in LA, Culver City, and beyond. I spend a great deal of time in the studio working but have a deep love for being outside so, as a Wag dogwalker I hope to feed my other love. Hanging out with Doggies!

    I grew up taking care of dogs & cats, & would love to meet yours. I currently have 2 cats & 3 dogs. I really like this job because I can’t get enough of those fur babies - plus they help me get into better shape! I have gotten very good at what I do &, as this is my only job now, I can devote my time to the pups. I go the extra mile to make them happy, including playtime and cuddles. I am also very skilled at drawing & painting them, so feel free to ask if you would like their portrait done.

    Hi! My name is Tommy and I am an seasoned dog companion with over 15 years of experience. Our current fur-baby is a dachshund mix with plenty of attitude. In graduate school, I helped to pay the way by taking care of professors, furry family members. I am picky about who takes care of my pup and expect you are the same way. Great minds think alike! I will treat your furry family member as if they were my own, with love, affection, and good manners :). Can’t wait to meet your baby!

    I currently sit and walk dogs and have been doing so for over five years. I was also previously a manager at a doggy daycare. I have experience with dogs of all types and sizes and treat each one as if it were my own. I’m great at following all instructions and look out for the safety of your pup!

Bush’s Pasture Park is over 90 acres in size, with flowers scattered throughout the park for your pooch to get a big whiff of on the walk by! Along the road runs a quaint little creek where your pooch can splash about. The park boasts a soap box derby track, tennis courts, playgrounds, and sports fields. Throughout the park you will find beautiful gazebos surrounded by plants and flowers, benches, and with the size of this park, tonnes of trails for you to explore with your furry best friend!

    The smaller neighborhood of Orchard Heights and Wallace is a wonderful place to call home for humans and their dogs! Within the neighborhood, residents will find easy access to a beautiful green space with lots of trails to explore with their pooches! The Orchard Heights Park offers wooded areas with plenty of trees, as well as open clearings to play in, and welcomes your pup to romp off leash. Grab your leash, or let your well behaved dog walk, run, or jog along with you while off leash! Glen Creek runs through the park, allowing your pup to have a cool wash off during your adventures. Residents can park along Hope Ave or Parkway Drive to access the trails and green space. Playgrounds are also located at this park.

    With four parks to visit, Central Area is a busy neighborhood for residents with dogs! There are just so many places to explore together. The Riverfront City Park is a great place to walk your dog. It is a large green space with a playground, an amphitheater, a carousel, and structures and flowers to admire throughout! Wilson Park is another scenic spot to walk your pooch on-leash, as the park has walking trails that surround the Capitol and Government buildings. Oregon State Capitol State Park is right across the street from Wilson Park, where more scenic trails can be found to explore with your dog on leash. Looking for something with more land and less buildings? Check out Pringle City Park on the south end of the neighborhood for lots of trails, trees, and peacefulness!

Much of the field is fenced, protecting your pooch from running outside the park! Towards the eastern side of the neighborhood is Lee City Park, where you will happen to find heavily treed trails along Pringle Creek, as well as some wide open space within the park itself. Much of the park is fenced, and offers a playground and benches as well.

With so much land, Minto-Brown has everything, from picnic areas and pavilions, to 29 miles of trails to explore. There’s playgrounds and restrooms on site. You can observe the myriad wildlife that calls this place home on platforms located throughout the sloughs. The best part for dogs is the 30 acre designated dog area, where off leash play is encouraged! Pack some snacks and water, as this one is going to be an adventure!
