Popular dog parks

I own a pet sitting business and have been suffering a lack in clientele due to the recession. Therefore, I'm kicking my advertising into overdrive before I end up homeless! So I'm curious, what dog parks in Portland tend to be quite busy on a regular basis? I'd like to go somewhere where lots of pet owners are congregated so I can personally pass out business cards. Beyond that, any suggestions of other places to try and drum up business?

I've been advertising through vets, pet stores, and online since I started this two years ago but now I think it's really important that I hand out my cards in person, as to make more of a positive impression.

Thank you!

*Edit: I DO offer dog walking services for regular clients. In fact, ideally I'd love to get some regular dog walk clients going for the summer since two of mine have decided to cancel services to save money. Also, if of you DPer's are interested in services, here ya go:
