“Intuitive & patient - great for skittish pups!”

I do particularly well with nervous or anxious dogs, since I seem to know how much space and structure they need to feel safe and loved. I've done sitting and walking for pet parents who swear, "My dog doesn't like anyone!" just to discover that their pups really like me. I'm very patient and great at reading canine body language, so I inevitably win the trust of the dogs I encounter.

“Energetic, easy going dog walker”

I strongly believe walks are the best way to build a friendly, trusting bond with a dog. I have an anxious minpin back home who I would walk twice daily to help ease his anxiety and get his daily exercise in. Our walks ended up being both of our favorite time of day! I'd love to share that special time with some new canine friends around Bellingham! I used to volunteer at a doggy daycare, and have experience with dogs of all sizes. I promise to keep your pup happy and active while I'm with them!

“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.

Ferndale’s character extends well beyond the early settlers’ cabins dispersed throughout town. Its historic downtown is a vibrant hotspot of hip restaurants, art galleries, fashion and lifestyle retail stores, trendy loft apartments and seasonal festivals.

Ferndale embraces pets and their people, too! You and Fido can experience some of the town’s unique places together, like the Hovander Homestead Park. This 350-acre park showcases the area’s origins with tours of award-winning gardens and a pioneer homestead complete with real-live farm animals and historic buildings. Take a stroll on the 1.4-mile Tennant Lake Marsh Boardwalk and enjoy the views of majestic Mount Baker. Leashed dogs are welcome throughout the park, except in buildings and a few other signed areas. Be sure to clean up after your pet to keep the park clean and open to dogs.

For a special treat you can only find in this part of Northwest Washington, visit the Edaleen Dairy ice cream shop in Ferndale. Your leashed pup can join you in the outdoor seating area as you enjoy a scoop (or two!) of homemade ice cream. From peanut butter to blueberry cheesecake, Edaleen Dairy has a flavor for everyone!

Need a veterinarian? Whether it’s a yearly check-up or something more urgent, one of Ferndale’s four veterinarian clinics is available to care for your furry friend.
