These guys rule! We have been using them since we moved to Portland a couple months ago. Jamie has been hiking our buddy Dingo once a week and he always comes back worn out and happy. She sends us lots of photos of him having fun on the trail with other dogs and provides a report for how he did. Is it grade inflation when he always gets A's? Nah, I think he is just that good. They do overnight dog sitting as well, and Jamie has taken Dingo when we are both out of town. We trust her completely with him!

The thought of letting my beloved but headstrong 5-year-old German Shepherd, Kyrie, go out into the world with someone besides me was terrifying. I had recently been working too many hours to give Kyrie the mental and physical stimulation she needed and deserved. Dog Adventures Northwest was referred to me, and after chatting with the owner, Kerry Ryan, I met the certified dog trainer who would take Kyrie for a trial adventure. I decided to chance it, and really, I have never looked back. Kerry (and trainers Jess, Jamie, Alyss, and Rosie) have all become members of Team Kyrie. Kyrie adores all of them, slightly losing her mind when any of them arrive outside my door.

I have come to trust all of the trainers - especially the integrity, care and concern of Kerry - completely. In the last year of adventures there have been house alarms set off and a beehives dogs have gotten into. The alarms were disabled with calm and good cheer, while the beehive was handled with selfless bravery with no harm to the dogs. This carries over into rain adventures, snow adventures, and even figuring out how to keep Kyrie from eating obnoxious things by finding her the perfect ball to hold in her mouth. That doesn't even cover the joy I get from the beautiful photos of Kyrie and her friends I receive right after every adventure. The reports include photos, a funny but complete description of the adventure that day, and the interaction between Kyrie and her pack mates.

Kerry and Dog Adventures Northwest have immeasurably added to the quality of both Kyrie's life and mine. She chooses her staff and runs her business with the utmost integrity. I have rarely been involved with any service provider whom I trust so implicitly and would recommend so wholeheartedly. Kyrie adds, "Woof!! Woof!!"

I am one of those people who considers their dogs as their kids. I wouldn't trust just anyone to care for our two guys. We use Dog Adventures Northwest for pet sitting and also for adventures. Kerry, the owner, is fantastic. I absolutely love her personality, as she is so easy to work with. She has wonderful customer service skills and does a great job in selecting the trainers that work with Dog Adventures Northwest. I have had a couple of last minute trips and she has always had me covered and gotten us the best trainers to take care of our two dogs. John has been our primary pet sitter and sole outdoor adventurer for our guys. He is awesome! When he shows up at the door, our dogs are ecstatic... their best friend has arrived to take them to the river! When we go on trips, he stays in regular communication with us and gives us regular updates and sends tons of pics. He even spoils them with fun adventures to the dog park. We know our dogs are in good hands. Recently, Samuel has done a couple of pet sitting stays for us and we were extremely impressed. He took our dogs on 3 walks a day, each, and encouraged good behaviors (such as impulse control) when encountering other dogs. Not only was he pet sitting but he was doing some good training with our dogs! He also kept us updated very regularly and was very proactive about telling us when either of our dogs wasn't feeling well (bad tummy). Samuel has excellent attention to detail and followed our care directions precisely when it came to caring for a bad tummy and our dog recovered very quickly. He was also cognizant of our dog who has a fear of loud noises. Both Samuel and John are very trustworthy and took great care of our homes while pet sitting. Our home was in the same condition (if not cleaner) than we left it!

It's a wonderful feeling to know that John is staying with Herman and Marcel (our two Sphynx cats) when we are out of town. Yes, we know they are well cared for, but it's also obvious how much John appreciates them and understands their individual personalities. He even sends Instagram-worthy pictures periodically so we can see how much they're enjoying time with 'Uncle John.' Some people have a gift for relating with animals and John is one of them.
