“Keeping pets safe, healthy, and happy for 20 years”

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.

Hi, my name is Celia Major and I will be a senior at Western Washington University. I like dogs and I like walking them. My dog passed away when I was very young but I love to meet other dogs and interact with them. I do not currently have a dog due to living in the dorms, but I love being with the dogs I see on campus or at home when I am on summer break. I want to get a dog when I graduate because while looking after others is nice, I think it would be even better to have my own.

The best tip you could give me is a five star review! If I end up having any trouble with your pets I will reach out. A lot of people do not respond but I think it is important to be vigilant in case your pet needs something important. Hope I can meet all your needs.

Dog Walking in Burlington

About halfway between Vancouver and Seattle sits Burlington, a small but active community with a rich history in agriculture and logging. Originally a logging camp in the 1880s, Burlington was officially incorporated in 1902. The town is best known for its annual Berry Dairy Days festival that celebrates Burlington’s roots as a farming community. The festival is said to have once featured the largest strawberry shortcake in the world.

Pups and their people love visiting Burlington’s many parks, especially the 51-acre Skagit River Park. There’s pawsome paths where you can walk with your leashed dog next to the beautiful Skagit River. The park has lots of open grassy areas too, plus picnic tables, soccer and baseball fields, restrooms and horseshoe pits. 

If you’re just visiting the area and you need a place to stay overnight with your dog, the Fairfield Inn and Suites Burlington has clean, comfortable and updated rooms. Pets are welcome for an additional fee.

Burlington also offers six veterinary clinics to care for your pup’s medical needs, so you can feel safe exploring with your furry bestie here!


For a tasty treat in Burlington, head to Whidbey Coffee. Enjoy a huge selection of coffees and specialty drinks, plus baked goods, sandwiches and wraps at one of their pet-friendly tables outside.
