Hello! I've been with Wag! for over two years now but I've been walking my own dogs for nearly two decades. I adore all dogs, but small pups -- like my Beagle, Clover, and my Tibetan Terrier, Penny -- are my favorite. I look forward to walking your dog soon!

Hi there! My name is Sabrina and I have always had a deep passion for animals. I love to work with them in any way that I can and I especially love dogs! I've had my own pup (Gracie Lou) for over 10 years now and I regularly volunteer with animal organizations in my free time. I've had the pleasure of working with a wide range of dogs with varying needs over many years. I truly love and appreciate all animals for who they are. I currently am pursuing a career in animal energy healing and take a calm loving approach with all of the animals I see. My ultimate goal is to love your pupper with lots of positive energy and make sure they are safe, happy, and healthy! Some notes on my walking style: I typically use a sturdy leash with an added traffic handle and LED light for added safety, I use eco-friendly compostable poop bags, and all pups will receive some TLC and water at the end of our walk!

“Green-haired friend to every pet!”

I walk and care for dogs / pets professionally for 14+ years. I’ve loved animals all my life! As a kid I would go knock on my neighbors’ doors and ask to walk their dogs for fun, which led me to pet-sitting and dog-walking jobs and volunteering with my local animal shelter. To every service I bring a can do attitude, knowledge gained from a degree in animal behavior and physiology, and first aid certification just in case. I'm fit, friendly, and would love to be your dog's new pal!

Dog Walking in Vancouver

Grab your munchkins (e.g. your kiddos) and your pooch and head on over to Pacific Community Park. Your kids will have a blast on the playground and basketball courts, and while they’re running off those ice cream sundaes your in-laws insisted on buying them, you can take your dog over to Dakota Memorial Dog Park, which is on the north side of Pacific Community Park. This dog park spans an entire eight acres, and every square-inch is fenced in. Jog around the gravel trail, play with a favorite toy, or practice on the park’s agility course. When you’re done, leash your pup back up and rinse him off at the dog rinse station. Dakota Memorial Dog Park opens its doggie gates at seven a.m. every day, and the fun doesn’t stop until the sun says goodnight!

It’s 7 a.m., and your dog is thumping his tail loudly against your night stand (his way of nonchalantly telling you to get up now). You know he’s not going to stop staring into your soul until you get out of bed, so you surrender. Now what? Well, get dressed, and take Fido to Brush Prairie Dog Park so he can run off his ornery energy. This dog park stretches over 7.5 acres of land, and has two separate areas: one for all dogs, and the other for small/shy dogs. Let your dog run to his heart’s desire – as long as he’s done by dusk, when the park closes.

Ready for a day of fun? Grab your dog’s loudest squeaky toy and head on out to Ross Dog Park. This eight-acre park is completely fenced in and separates the big dogs from the little guys (> 25 lbs are considered small dogs). Ross Dog Park also has trails to explore and a water station.

Exploring the residential Evergreen East neighborhood with your pup is a great way to get out and meet other dog loving neighbors. Sidewalks along the streets are perfect for a quick potty break, but planning a day at Dakota Memorial Dog Park at Pacific Community Park is sure to get your dog’s tail wagging. The 8-acre off leash area is fenced with a double gated entrance to keep your pup safe. In addition to the open lawn, the park allows your pooch to investigate forested areas and have a pawsome time on the rustic log agility course. Pup parents can rest on the park benches, or take a walk with Fido over to McMenamins East Restaurant for some European cuisine and craft beer at a table outside.

Gary’s at the Park is a quaint restaurant with a large dog friendly outdoor patio where you can enjoy fish and chips or Dungeness crab cakes. In the evening, plan to take your well-behaved leashed pup to Loowit Brewing Company to drink some craft beer at an inside or outside table.
