Kerry is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer, an outdoor enthusiast, and the proud mama of an awesome dog named Obie. She is a Professional Member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers, and was voted the "Best Individual Trainer of the Northwest" by Spot Magazine for several years in a row. Kerry received a Bachelor's Degree from Brown University, and regularly attends continuing education classes in the areas of dog behavior and learning.
Kerry believes that many canine behavioral problems could easily be alleviated through proper exercise. While many dog owners often meet their dog's basic needs for food, water, love, and boundaries, the average Portland pooch is under-exercised, getting only one or two short leashed walks per day. The truth of the matter is that most dogs need much more than this. Depending on the age, breed, and health of the dog, most dogs need at least one hour of off-leash exercise every single day! To this end, Kerry started Dog Adventures Northwest to make it easier for people to meet the needs of their four-legged family members. She love dogs, has a thorough understanding of canine behavior, and is an avid adventurer, so it was a natural undertaking. Since its inception in the Summer of 2011, there have been many miles of happy trails and even more happy tails.

Dog Adventures Northwest is such an amazing company! The staff is absolutely wonderful, very friendly and easy to work with. The trainers are very professional, attentive and knowledgeable to my dog's needs and training routines. I know my dog is in good hands when he is out on his adventures.
I have been with this company for 6 months now and absolutely love the service. When Jamie comes to the door to pick Samson up, he is full of excitement and she is full of love for him! Samson comes home with the biggest smile on his his face and you can tell he has had the best day. I also get a message after his adventures with the day's recap and some great photos of my dog on his outing.
I love the pick up and drop off service as it makes it very convenient! If I am not home for pick up and or drop off, I have a spare key outside so Samson does not miss his day out. I fully trust Jamie with access to the key as she is very reliable and honest. His leash is always put back where I keep it and she makes sure the TV is left on for him as he is one spoiled boy. I highly recommend this company as Kerry (the owner) has put her heart and soul into creating an incredible brand.
