“Now in Bellingham and surrounding areas!”

I love dogs! I always have, ever since I was little. I've done pet walking and sitting for friends and family, as well as working in a Doggy Daycare/boarding facility, accepting dogs of all sizes, breeds and temperaments. I would love to become your pups second best friend (next to you, of course) and I can't wait to meet them!

Hi, I'm Carol. I've been involved in the "dog fancy" since I was a young child. Having been raised with a myriad of dogs and cats, you could say my life has Gone to the Dogs! I have been a veterinary assistant, dog walker, as well as having worked in several kennels and doggie day care centers.

Dog Walking in Goshen


Goshen was a pioneer town that experienced a minor boom when the rail lines were being run, and was a western stop on the Bellingham Bay and British Columbia Railroad line. The height of Goshen came when it was in the running to be the major depot along that rail line, and another that was being run from north to south through Washington. Tacoma won that test, even beating out Seattle. Goshen’s never quite regained that peak, but people still find their way to Goshen just the same.


Goshen today is rural farmland, broken by Anderson Creek running straight through the center of the town. While Goshen doesn’t have any vets directly within it, residents are a short commute from Lynden, where multiple animal hospitals are available to provide a whole host of veterinary services. Bellingham is also nearby, serving the dogs of the community with excellent healthcare.


If you’re looking to clear the city out of your lungs, Goshen is the perfect place to visit. This small residential center is full of green, and perfect for someone looking to get a feel for old time Washington and the charms it still has. Dogs are less interested in history, but they’ll be very interested in Goshen!
