“Here to take your sweet pups out for adventures :)”

Originally from the east coast, I grew up with 2 fur brothers (Ernie & Martin- police German Shepards) and 1 fur sister (Bella- black lab). I’m currently living in the Seattle area (while not working on a yacht) with a few humans and their Carolina Dog, Anna. Anna does fill my heart, but there is always room for more!

Hi! I'm Ally, and I currently own one adorable cocker spaniel/corgi/dachshund mix who I love very much! I volunteered at an animal shelter called Homeward Pets for about a year and mostly worked with the cats, but got behavioral training with both canines and felines while I was there. I am currently taking art classes at Lake Washington Tech in Kirkland with my goal of becoming a professional tattoo artist. I live in the Bothell area right next to Seattle, own my own car, and absolutely love walking dogs! I can't wait to meet yours!

Hello dog owners, I grew up around many animals including the sweetest golden doodle named Zoey and two cats. I took Zoey on many walks throughout her time here and loved playing with her any chance I could get! I have also pet sitted for many of my family friends over the years and have never had a bad experience or anything less than a good time. I adore meeting new dogs and hope to meet yours soon!

My name is Jessica and I’ve spent most of my life around pups! I truly believe the unconditional love and joy they bring to us is something we could never find anywhere else and for that, they are perfect! I have had 5 dogs in my lifetime (plus a few more as a toddler). Bentley is 11 months old and lives with me now, and 3 more (Lucy, Val, and Maggie Mae; all at least 9 years older than Bentley) live with my mother. I see them all the time and they are just as happy to see me as I, them. I see them as my children and I respect and treat ALL dogs as if they were my own. I cannot wait to meet more furry friends and help families give them the best care and attention they deserve!

Dog Walking in Big Lake

Once an active logging town, Big Lake is a quiet rural community about five miles east of the city of Mount Vernon. What Big Lake lacks in population, it makes up for with sweeping views of its namesake lake and the Cascade Mountains. Although the town of Big Lake doesn't have any veterinarians, there are 15 veterinary clinics just a short drive away in Mount Vernon should your pet need medical attention.

Big Lake has a couple of restaurants, a grocery, a resort and a nine-hole golf course. This small village is an extremely pawpular spot to enjoy a day of water sports on the lake. The Big Lake itself is a great place to kayak or canoe with your furry friend! There is a public boat ramp located on the southwest side of the lake for easy access.

If you’re looking for a fur-iendly hotel, the Best Western College Way Inn in Mount Vernon is happy to host people and their pets in their clean and updated rooms.

Also near Big Lake on the east side of Mount Vernon, you can enjoy a delicious meal at Fireweed Terrace Restaurant and Lounge at the Eaglemont Golf Course.
