Dog Walker and Pet Care Provider

Pet Sitter in Barrie

I am an experienced dog walker and animal lover. I offer a variety of services for pets including; Dog Walking, home visits and trail runs. When booking clients I like to make appointments in advance, but I will do what I can to find time for fur friends that need last minute care. (There are no guarantees that in-home over night care can be provided last minute.) I usually walk with a maximum of 4 dogs at a time depending on behaviors and other factors (an example would be, if you have a puppy that is not fully vaccinated yet and you would prefer the puppy walked alone.) In town walks- The in town walks are in residential areas, which are usually busy with cars and foot traffic. While walking through town I work on leash manners and different commands such as leave it. Being in town there are things on the ground every now and then that a dog really should not get a hold of, having leave it as a command your dog knows could save his/her life. If your dog has a behavioral issue, time will be made to go on a walk alone to ensure your dog and others dogs are safe. In town walk prices- $15 - For walks up to an hour and a half in length. If you are a family with multiple dogs, for each additional dog it costs $5 extra. Trail Walks- I enjoy spending time out on local trails, I have been trail walking with dogs for many years. With the uneven terrain and new smells, dogs always enjoy themselves and come home tired. For trail walks the dogs *must* have their own harnesses (for safety purposes) as the dogs are run on long lines that I provide. They must also have tags on them with their name and a phone number that you can be reached at. Trail Walk Prices- $25 - For a walk for up to two hours in length. If you are a family with two dogs, for each additional dog it costs $8 extra. Home Visits- With home visits I can help you with your daily animals tasks such as letting the dogs out for a pee break and cleaning the cat litter. For home visits I like to determine the tasks that need to be completed with you before we set a fee as some visits are a quick 20 pee break and other visits could be longer with crate cleaning, socialization and feeding. Home Visit Prices- $15 and up per visit $40 - For multiple visits (Up to 3 visits a day) (Home visit times would be discussed and decided on with you.) In-Home Over Night- If you travel a lot on weekends for hockey tournaments or just taking a week off to go on a family vacation. We now offer in-home over night care. Most dogs tend to feel more relaxed in their home while the family is away. I stay with the dogs over night and am there for their regular schedule tasks such as feeding and walks. In-Home Over Night Prices- $35 per day If you are a family with two or more dogs, for each additional dog it costs $12 extra. Ask about our week long fee. Over night care is also provided out of my home if you feel you dogs need a little vacation as well! If you have any questions or concerns about the services that I offer feel free to message me at any time and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
