About Carol

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
30+ years Professional Pet Care Experience * Skilled Veterinary Technician * References Available * I am Carol Cornwall, owner of Scooter's Bed and Biscuit, the loving, home-style, cage-free daycare and boarding alternative for special doggies in the Portland metro area. I began my professional pet care career part-time in 1985 during my college years at TCU (GO, FROGS!) in Fort Worth, TX. While growing my pet care business, I also worked in both an animal shelter and veterinarian office as veterinary technician until I was able to make pet care my full-time career. In 2004, I moved to the West Coast and opened Scooter's in Northern California. After yearning for decades to live in the Great Pacific Northwest, I moved here in 2007 and Scooter's opened in Oregon, serving the Portland area ever since.

Caring for dogs is the goal every day at Scooter's Bed and Biscuit. I am an expert at keeping dogs happy and stress-free while their people are away from home, and a less-stressed dog is a much healthier dog. Rather than simply making sure a dog's basic needs of food, water, and shelter are met, I go the extra distance to ensure each canine guest has a tailored stay to accommodate their needs for companionship, rest, and activity. Dogs love Scooter's location near the river and all the action that provides. There are big, interesting birds flying overhead (and sometimes resting in our trees) and squirrels leaving treasures outside to sniff and then be chased from tree to tree around the yard.

Almost any dog would enjoy Scooter's Bed and Biscuit for boarding or daycare. Family dogs who are not aggressive toward other dogs, and who like to run and play with equally fun-loving canines, excel at my B&B. Also, dogs who pine for their people while home alone, and who might get into a little mischief because of their loneliness, love to spend time with me in the constructive, positive, and nurturing environment I provide. In addition to lots of play, there is also time set aside for rest and cuddling.

I take the time and make every effort to create a place where all personalities will feel comfortable. Quiet dogs will enjoy spending time relaxing with a loving caregiver who spoils them with belly rubs. Active dogs will find the large fully-enclosed yard really satisfies their need to stretch their legs and receive extra attention from someone who will throw the ball over and over and over. I strive to tailor each dog's stay with me to their individual needs in order to make sure stress and anxiety are not a factor during their time away from home.

I particularly enjoy caring for geriatric dogs and those who need medical care due to chronic conditions or after surgery. I have a separate room in my home where these special ones can be cared for in a quiet environment while not being disturbed by more active guests. My Scooter was 16 years old when she passed away and had a few special needs in her last years. I'm grateful to have had that precious time to further spoil her while preparing her special meals and treating her with holistic remedies. I feel the older and ill dogs are so thankful for the attention we give them.

After meals are served (each guest is allowed to eat individually), all dogs have a rest period for digestion and to enjoy music or videos. In the evening before bed, everyone enjoys a final romp outside to get any last minute business taken care of before lights out. I offer each canine guest the opportunity to sleep at night as they would at home. I have individual kennels for dogs who prefer alone time or I can accommodate those who would like to sleep with the group. Soft beds (heated when necessary) comfy sofas, cushy chairs and even my personal bed are provided to make my place homey and cozy. When morning comes, we all go outside and greet the day with a few laps around the yard before breakfast, after which we have quiet time to let the kibble settle before starting another fun filled day.

The large outdoor play yard and cozy indoors make Scooter's the best choice for rain-or-shine play and socializing. I offer transportation service for boarding guests Monday through Friday mornings. For your convenience, I am able to administer any oral or injectable medication to your beloved dog while staying with me and I feature 24-hour on-site emergency care. My clients feel safe entrusting their darling doggies to me knowing that I am capable of stabilizing any emergent situation that may arise before seeking emergency veterinary care. My location is 10 minutes away from the 24-hour VCA Northwest Veterinary Specialists Emergency Hospital.

Because I structure my boarding experience as a home environment, dogs who stay at Scooter’s are less anxious about being away from their own home. This promotes a happy, peaceful, relaxed atmosphere that clients definitely notice when they come to pick up their dog. This impression is what keeps them coming back to Scooter’s Bed and Biscuit.

I have a very flexible schedule and can usually bend my days to fit yours. I do not keep regular hours, but try to be accommodating to reasonable requests for clients to drop off and pick up their dogs when it is convenient for them. I look forward to meeting you and your precious dog soon. Schedule your visit today . We LOVE them when you have to leave them!

First I have to say how welcoming Carol was for our meet and greet with my old fur baby. I instantly knew he would be well cared for even though as a older guy he is set in his ways and routine. Carol was so accommodating and sent me updates while we were away I knew he was doing well. I picked up my fur baby the morning after we returned from our Thanksgiving trip and he was happy, I could tell it had been a great vacation for him as well

Carol did a great job watching Laddie. She is very knowledgeable about dogs. I appreciate her watching him for me. I will use Carol again.
My little dog is somewhat anxious being away from home but Carol was sensitive of her needs and took great care to make her comfortable. I would definitely recommend.
I can tell Dexter has had a good time when I pick him up from Carol's. He enjoys playing with the other repeat guests!
i was impressed by carol's questions about indy during the meet and greet. she also handled introducing indy to her own dogs and another boarding dog very well, introducing indy to each one individually. indy had a wonderful time running around the large fenced yard. carol clearly loves dogs and her discussion with me about indy reflected this. i highly recommend carol and plan to contact her for future visits.

We were so fortunate to find Carol after a bad boarding experience at a strip mall facility. She was accommodating to my needs while my husband was ill. But, best of all our nervous little dog came home healthy and happy. A week later she is eating well and I believe her dog and human interactions at Carols have been beneficiall to her. I will definitely use her again.

Carol is FANTASTIC!!!! Both Bo and Paco had an enjoyable time in her care. She sent pics and updates via text on a regular basis. It was very comforting to know that my husband and I could enjoy our vaca knowing that our kids are in very good hands. Carol has a very caring touch about her and it is obvious that animals are her passion. Carol was very accommodating to our departure/return times and was great when our return flight was delayed. This is the first time that Carol has watched our kids and we are confident that we have found a permanent second home for Bo and Paco! I highly recommend Carol!!!

Carol is professional, thorough and responsive. After a detailed conversation during the meet & greet, I felt very good about Carol leaving Porter in her care. She really cares about animals and I trust her to make good decisions. When I picked up Porter, she provided detailed and helpful feedback. I highly recommend Carol.

Carol was a wonderful host! Her Meet-and-Greet was very thorough, making sure Dexter would fit in at her home. She responds very quickly. It was my first time leaving Dexter for the night with someone he didn't know. Carol sent me pictures of him throughout the day with updates and I could tell Dexter was having a good time. When I picked him up his tail was wagging and he was happy! Definitely will be bringing him back to play there.
