frolicsomeDog Walking Service in Arlington, WA

Please Note:  One of my dear dog families is moving away. After the lock-down period due to COVID-19 I will have (up to an) hour-per-day time slot opening up, with some choice RE time of day. Otherwise my schedule is full with long-time customers. I prefer to service the downtown neighborhood (approximately the area north of Safeway but south of the river).  Warm Regards, — Catherine

In present times, life’s circumstances can make it tough to give pets the amount of exercise and stimulation they need each day. Owners want to keep them happy and avoid developing behavioral and health related issues.

I’d love to help you. I am a reliable dog walker in the Arlington area. My understanding of dog behavior comes from many years of working with dogs. Experience allows me to handle dogs of diverse temperaments with confidence. I’m not afraid of extra large dogs and am just as happy to handle small and boisterous ones. I appreciate how delicate small dogs can be, and I’m able to help nervous dogs feel secure.


Having worked with a lot of puppies, I am capable of a great amount of patience. I’ve learned that it’s in the handler’s best interest to be adored by the dog! Dogs are individuals, and work differently, but they know if one cares about them. I understand how even a small amount of stress about obedience will be felt by the dog and make an undesirable impact on behavior.

Licensed, insured, and bonded, I’ve had a full, (finger-printed) background check. I’m also certified in pet first aid and CPR.

I’m willing to work with you to fit your individual needs.  Contact me to ask questions or schedule a free introductory meeting.  I look forward to meeting you and your dog!
