“Conscientious and thoughtful pet care :)”

I have been around animals my whole life. As a child I studied dog behavior and training which helped give me knowledge on the proper ways to handle and interact with them. I have an excellent understanding of how dogs work and I feel I and know well how to care for them in a variety of situations. I have cared for many dogs both of my own and of others'.

“Wiggly butts drive me nuts!”

Hello Pet Parents! My name is Angie, and I can't wait to meet your pup! I'm that person who will immediately get down on the ground to love on all things furry before having a proper conversation with their owners, I can't help myself. I have 2 crazy babies of my own. Both rescues, one with severe anxiety bordering on feral, and both over 60lbs. So I'm used to big, crazy, shy furballs that need just a bit more time to feel comfortable. When it comes to dogs, I have all the time in the world!

“Life’s simply incomplete without the love of a dog”

Hello there! My name’s Katreece and I’m looking forward to meeting your dog. I’ve grown up with animals my entire life so taking care of the furries comes second nature to me. We’ve only had big dogs in our family but I’m well acquainted with the little guys too. My husband and I have an American Bully and my family has two German Shepard mixes as well. I’ve completed many walks as well as sittings, so rest assured your baby will be in good hands. Hopefully we can make this a reoccurring thing

Dog Walking in Tacoma

Open until the break of dawn until the fall of dusk, the Chambers Bay Off Leash Dog Park & Beach is an admission-free, seven-acre park with one acre specifically for dogs to run off-leash. This beautiful park stays eye-pleasing and functional thanks to SUN Dogs – Safe, Unleashed, Natural – a non-profit group in University Place.

Perched on the edge of the 285-acre Wapato Lake is the one-acre park of Wapato Lake Park. Leashed dogs are welcome to explore the short trail that entices visitors to a small sand beach, or Fido can frolic about in one of the three completely fenced-in leash-free zones. Benches, shelters, and water are available, and there is no cost to get in. If you want to make Fido's day, plan on spending the entire day at the park, in order to do this simply find out what time sunrise is and then show up a half-hour before then, and stay until the sun goes back to bed.

Experience a piece of Tacoma’s history at Browns Point Lighthouse. Browns Point is home to Tacoma’s historic lighthouse and has plenty of places for picnics, so travel back in time during your lunch hour. Your pooch is welcome to tag along too, as long as she’s on her leash at all times.
