“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.

“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.

“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.

“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.

About 15 miles north of Bellingham, you’ll find the picturesque and quiet town of Lynden. Once a pioneer settlement, the area has grown into a vibrant, family-oriented community while still maintaining its original historical charm. 

Pups and their people love Lynden. The town’s dog park, Bender Fields Dog Park, is a puptacular place to exercise your pooch. The park has one whole acre that is fenced-in where your dog can run free and play in the grass. There is a covered seating area where humans can relax, too. If your pup gets thirsty, there is a water spigot and bowls, but be aware the water gets turned off in colder months. Doggie waste cleanup bags are provided at the off-leash area. 

If you want to join your dog in getting some exercise, just outside the dog park you’ll find the Jim Kaemingk Sr. Trail that meanders through the rest of Bender Fields Park. Your leashed dog is welcome to join you on a jaunt in the park.

Lynden City Park is another spot that sure to make your dog’s tail wag. Take a walk by the creek or enjoy a picnic at this scenic park in the heart of Lynden. Leashed dogs are welcome and the park provides cleanup bags.
