I’ve grown up around dogs and want to help out responsible pet owners when at work or away. I will provide on leash walks or runs when necessary and give it a fun break during the day. The dogs I have cared for have ranged from small to large with varying energy levels. I have cared for senior dogs that require oral medications and those recovering from surgeries. I will be home full-time with a wide open schedule to help you out with pet care. Together we can give your dog it’s best life!

“Keeping pets safe, healthy, and happy for 19 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 Killian and I just finished college in NY and have returned home to the beautiful PNW in a house with a big fenced-in backyard. I love all animals and crave being around them! I have been described as a dog-whisperer and had two dogs of my own growing up. If it weren’t for traveling often, I would rescue as many dogs as I could take care of! I look forward to taking care of your pup!

“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 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.
