“On an adventure we go!”

My name is Grace and I am a student studying to be a soft sculpture artist. I enjoy interacting with animals and walking about town to get from place to place, even if it's not to anywhere in particular. I'm a proud pet parent myself and grew up with and around dogs, having done a lot of pet care when I was younger including walking and boarding them for short periods.

“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.

Dog Walking in Veneta

Veneta is a small rural community on Fern Ridge Lake near the bigger town of Eugene, and was named after the five-year-old daughter of the founder, Veneta Hunter Vincent. Veneta is most noted as the site of the annual Oregon Country Fair, originally called the Renaissance Faire. Veneta Veterinary Hospital and Veterinary House Call Service are ready to look after your pooch for any medical needs.

Your pup will love a swim in Fern Ridge Lake at Perkins Peninsula Park, or a leashed walk in the grassy open space. Take a pawsome walk in Jean Park, a quiet little park at the end of a peninsula with lots of large trees and water access for a swim before returning home.  Enjoy the 7-acre Veneta City Park with plenty of space to wander. The quarter-mile looping walk and jog path of Territorial Park welcomes leashed pups out for a jaunt in the fresh air. 

Visit dog-friendly Valhalla Winery to enjoy their selection of wines after a picturesque walk through the vineyards. Come by on Friday where you'll find the added feature of awesome food trucks and a live band to listen to where you and your pooch enjoy the open-air facilities. Enjoy the beautiful nature of Veneta and its parks for a time of relaxation and renewal with Fido.

Orchard Point Park and the Orchard Point Recreational Area are on the eastern side of Fern Ridge Lake in this Eugene neighborhood , and offer lots of opportunities for fishing. You can also explore the shallow lagoons and bottomland creeks with your kayak or canoe. The park is large, open, and flat for a great round of fetch or Frisbee, as well as leashed walks. The shaded park is a perfect place for getting close to the water on a hot day where the trees add some lovely shade, and the shallow paved swim area is very clean. This park is a perfect place for a barbecue and picnic with dog-loving friends.
