“I love them all; big, small, old, and energized!”

Hi, I'm Auri and I recently moved to the Bellingham area after living all over Washington state and Alaska. I grew up with a black lab always in the house, and miss our current lab, Zeppelin, dearly while away from my hometown, Juneau, Alaska. Fortunately, I currently live in a house with an Australian Shepherd so I still have a furry companion around when I need one. I have loved my time working for Wag! and walking all types of dogs.

Hello! My name is Jaclyn, and I grew up and worked for a dog kennel for my entire childhood (my family owned one). On the kennel, I helped to board, train, breed, and raise up to 30+ dogs at a time. Because of this I am skilled in handling almost all dog breeds, ages, and sizes. I am also currently progressing my education in veterinary medicine at a Washington institution.

“Let’s care for the pups that care for us.”

I am an animal lover and do my best to advocate for our furry friends who can’t speak up for themselves. I have grown up frequently visiting friends and family members with dogs of all sizes and breeds (from yorkies to golden retrievers to pit bulls). I will never discriminate against any dog breed as every stereotyped dog I have ever met (like pit bulls and dobermans) has been extremely sweet and playful.

Dog Walking in Bellingham

Up north, in Washington state, they sure love their animals. A majority of the people in Bellingham, Washington, own at least one cat or dog and in some cases even one or more of both! With so many animals running around, you can bet there is plenty of things to do with your pet in Bellingham.

Bellingham is acclaimed for its many outdoors opportunities and what is a better way to enjoy some fresh air than to follow one of the hiking trails with your dog? Whether you opt for the South Bay trail, the Railroad Trail or the Whatcom County Interurban trail, you and your furry companion are bound to get rid off any built-up energy.

You can also choose to take your dog for a walk in one of the many dog parks and other dog-friendly areas. The Little Squalicum Park, the Maritime Heritage Park, the Arroyo Park are all great options. The favorite park among the locals, however, is the Lake Padden Dog Park as it is a fenced park where you can let the dog off its leash.

In the summer, you can also visit the Bloedel Donovan Beach. Dogs are allowed to roam and play fetch on the beach from 6 am to 10 am during these months. What is a more better way to start the day then unwind yourself on the beach with Fido!

Your pooch will enjoy a walk at the Sehome Hill Arboretum. Here, the unpaved wooded trails are off leash areas, though leashes are required on all of the beautiful and well-maintained paved main trails. Plenty of short loops and trails allow you to walk in many directions. Don’t be surprised to run into wildlife along these pawsome trails. The views of Bellingham Bay from the observation tower are worth the stair climb during the fall and winter months when the leaves are off the trees. One of the trails has a short tunnel with an information board.
