“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 Nooksack

Tucked away by the Canadian border in the northernmost part of Washington State, Nooksack is as scenic as it is tranquil. This charming, friendly town is best known as the home of Darius and Tabitha Kinsey, two trailblazing, early 20th-century photographers who documented everyday life and industrial processes in the area. 

Though the town’s business district was ravaged by wildfires during the 1900s, its sense of civic pride remained strong, and today, Nooksack is a peaceful bedroom community of about 1,500 souls nestled among the woods and waterways of the beautiful Nooksack Valley. Nooksack may be small, but there’s certainly room for a veterinary clinic, and 24-hour care is available in nearby Bellingham.

You won’t find a designated dog park or off-leash area in Nooksack, but fur-tunately, you and your pooch can still sniff out some exercise options! City Park in the heart of Nooksack is both picturesque and relatively canine-friendly. Not only that, but nature-loving pups and owners will be glad to know that Nooksack is just a stone’s throw away from some pawesome state parks and hiking trails. And don’t worry -- you’ll find plenty of places to let your furry friend run free just a short drive away!

The Bender Fields Dog Park in Lynden is the closest dog run to Nooksack, so it’d be a huge faux paw not to visit! This dog park isn’t the biggest, but it’s not usually crowded, so there should be plenty of space for your fur ball to run around and tire themselves out in. Bags and water are provided on-site. After you two have worked up an appetite, you can chow down at JoFish Seafood and Grill! This pawpular family-owned restaurant serves up the best halibut and chips in the area, and caters to canine customers outside.

If you and your pooch love hiking, you’re in luck -- Nooksack is near some of the best hiking trails and most splendid scenery the Pacific Northwest has to offer. Glacier is a great starting point for many furrific treks. The Nooksack Falls trail is just over a mile long, easily walkable, and features a fabulous view of the falls. More athletic animals might like to try a stretch of the Heliotrope Trail, a rockier path that features several steep inclines. Just remember to bring your own waste bags to keep the area clean!

Make no bones about it -- if your pooch likes to swim as part of their off-leash adventures, they’ll have a whale of a time splashing about at Bloedel Donovan Beach in Bellingham! Part of the larger Whatcom Falls Park, this pawsitively excellent off-leash area allows pups to swim in the lake between the hours of 6 AM and 10 PM. The Waterline Trail is also open to free-roaming furry friends, so you and your buddy can take a walk as a warm-up. Be careful, though -- neither of these off-leash areas are fenced, so you might want to keep an eye on your little tearaway!

Cultured canines might get a kick out of a visit to Hovander Homestead Park in Ferndale! This huge 350-acre park has a historic trail that lets visitors peer into Washington’s pioneer farming past, and your pooch is welcome to join as long as they’re leashed. If history isn’t your cup of tea (or your dog’s bowl of water), there’s also a long walking trail along a serene section of the Nooksack River. Once you and your buddy are all tuckered out, why not chill out with a bowl of ice cream from Edaleen Dairy? A Whatcom County staple, this ice cream joint does some seriously special homemade gelato.

Though Fairhaven is a 30-minute drive from Nooksack, this fantastically fur-friendly neighborhood is a real mutts-visit. You and your pooch can pop in to  Paws for A Beer, a truly unique bar with its own off-leash play area! Pups and their well-behaved owners are allowed both inside and out, so there’s no need to leave your best friend outside while you order. Or, you two can curl up with a good read at Village Books, a bookstore that lets your buddy browse with you. If beers and books aren’t your scene, Fido can get a workout in at the Fairhaven Dog Park, a small off-leash area where waste bags and water are provided.
