Hi I’m Jessica. I’m a definite animal person and I especially love doggies. My professional dog experience started at one of the big pet food chains where I was a certified dog trainer for a year. I then moved on to a doggy daycare/boarding facility where I was a play group leader for 3yrs. I’ve been a stay at home mom since then. Now that both my kids are in school I’d like to go back to working with dogs since that is what I love. Thank you for letting me walk your doggies, it truly is my pleasure.

“Excellent Booper of Snoots”

Hi there! I’m a single mom of two furless little boys and six furbabies: two German shepherds and four cats. My first animal job was at a wildlife rehabilitation center working with bobcats, skunks, owls, and turkey vultures. I then became a dog groomer and learned that while I don’t love giving dogs haircuts, I do love helping them feel better. Now I work full time at a veterinary hospital and I’m a veterinary technician student. Dogs are literally my life and I would love to get to know yours!

Hello there! I have loved animals and had pets ever since I was a kid. I am not at a place in my life where I am able to have a dog of my own so I love getting to spend time with other people's pups! I'm an avid walker and hiker and would love to take your dog out for a walk around Sacramento.

​Hi! My name is Kelli Stetson and I am from San Diego, California but am currently a student at The George Washington University in the lovely District of Columbia! Growing up, I could never have a dog since my father was allergic, but that wasn't going to keep me from loving them! I took every opportunity I could to be around these amazing animals! My best friend had three dogs that I absolutely adored and between you and I that may have been the real reason she was my best friend! All of my dog owning friends often get annoyed with me as I tend to spend more time with their dogs than them. I also volunteered often at my local humane society. Dogs are incredible and I would love to meet and walk yours!

Hi I’m Kylie and dogs have always played an important role in my life. I have had dogs in my family ever since I can remember and each dog I’ve owned and cared for has played a special part in my growth as a person. Every dog I’ve had was more than a pet to me, they were and are family and I think it’s so important that you find someone who is willing to take care of your dogs with the same love and attention they would a family member. Feeding, cleaning up messes, making sure to give them plenty of exercise and play time and most importantly giving them love and care are what I promise to give to your dog. I have cared for many family and friends dogs from just taking them on walks to the park, to staying over night for a week while the family is away on vacation. I love animals and cannot wait to care for your furry friend!!

I have owned dogs, big and small, since I was a child. In college, I worked at various animal hospitals caring for different types of pets. These experiences have taught me how to properly work with animals who need extra care and patience. Currently, I am applying to veterinary school and hope to continue my path to caring for animals.

Dog Walking in Tangent

Seven miles south of Albany, you’ll find the grass seed capital of the world, otherwise known as Tangent, Oregon! Situated in the central part of the Willamette Valley, Tangent’s fertile growing soil and temperate climate made it an inviting place for ancient Native Americans and early settlers. Tangent expanded heavily in 1871 when railroad construction swept through the valley. Today, Tangent is still dotted with historic buildings, including the original Tangent train depot which is now a residence. 

Dogs and their owners love walking in Tangent’s Pioneer Park. This well-kept open space in the heart of town is a great place for some exercise with Fido. There’s also restrooms, basketball hoops and a playground for kiddos. Leashed dogs are welcome in the park as long as you cleanup after them. 

Whether your pup needs urgent medical attention or just a check-up, you’ll find all the veterinary services you need just down the road at one of Albany’s 10 veterinary clinics.

If you and your four-legged friend need overnight accommodations, the Phoenix Inn Suites Albany, just 6.5 miles from Tangent has pawsome updated, clean rooms. There is an additional fee for furry guests.

There’s no doubt about it! Tangent pups and their people enjoy the best of both worlds – small town life, with big city perks just a short drive away in Albany!
