I have worked with dogs and cats throughout my life. I was a full-service dog groomer for over 20 years, earned my certification as a Vet Technician, and worked at an African animal reserve in California. My own dogs (Romy and Dixie) keep me happy and entertained when I'm not with YOUR pets. There is nothing better than the time I get to spend with my furry pals!
For over 9 years, I have been providing continual walking and pet services for clients in the SW Portland area. My service area includes Multnomah Village, Raleigh Hills, Garden Home, Raleigh West, Burlingame, Marshall Park, Hillsdale, and Mountain Park. My clients can count on me to be where I say I will be, when I say I will be. Reliability, consistency, and affordability are the words I live by. My "furry" clients know me as their best friend in the world who walks and plays with them, and keeps them company when you're away.
I believe in taking care of your dogs and cats just like you do. Their peace of mind and safety is my number 1 priority. The minute you join the Tina the Dog Walker family, that's exactly what your pets are to me. Family. There is never a time when they don't come first. And for their "hoomans", I adhere to the strictest of Covid-19 protocols when at your home. If you are home when I come to walk your pooch, we will arrange a safe socially distanced way for me to leash him/her up. I have wipes and sanitizers for door knobs, etc. and always use my own leash. Safety is key!
Whether you're at home or at work, your pups need frequent outdoor excursions. I have several options to choose from!
15 minute walk for fresh air and a potty break
30 minute walk for some good exercise
45 minute walk for pups with energy to burn
Rates are based on no more than 2 dogs or 3 cats per household. For additional animals, a $5 per pet fee may be added. Each of these services is available multiple times a day. Sorry, I don't offer overnight pet sitting services.
15 minute clean and feed, potty break, play time and more!
30 minute visit for walking, clean and feed, play time, and more!
45 minutes of snuggles, play, walks, cuddles, cleaning and more!
Included in the pet sitting rates is daily package and mail pickup, opening and closing blinds and curtains, turning lights on in the evening and off in the morning, cleaning litter boxes, and other services by request and at an additional charge based on time requirements.
So how do we start? Simply contact me by filling out the contact box on this website, or by email or phone and we can set up a free 30-minute consultation, a "meet and greet". Once you and your pets feel comfortable with me, we can firm up any details and I'll leave you with a bit of paperwork to fill out before my first visit. Once I start walking or sitting with your pets, I'm delighted to send you a text update to give you the highlights of the visit. It couldn't be easier, and your pets will be so excited to have a new pal to get them outside or to spend time with when you're away.
