About Agnes

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We welcome your pet to a wonderful quiet environment with lots of love to share. With that said we only accept 1-2 pet guests per day so that we are able to maintain a quiet, comfortable and safe environment for your pet. Feeling a little skeptical about leaving your fur baby with strangers? Do not worry, we encourage a meet and greet with myself and my partner. We live in a beautiful old Mississauga neighborhood (Applewood Hills) which is close to Toronto yet feels like a true escape from the city. Just behind us we have a giant park and we have 3 KM of trails through a forest/park beside a river.

Our Schedules
Wojtek and I have loved and lived with animals throughout our lives and work together to provide a home away from home for your pup . We both work full time, however with slightly offset schedules we are able to make sure your furball is not left alone for a full typical work day. I have a lot of flexibility with my schedule and usually work weekends, mornings or evenings meanwhile Wojtek works the Mon-Fri 9-5 with occasional days at home and the ability to stop at home mid-day.

Our Lifestyle
We can match any dog as we are active and also have a lot of energy. We go out on the occasion but usually you will find me studying at home or driving out to the stables to ride horses. Provided that the owner would appreciate this, long term stays (3-4 weeks or more) can accompany me to the farm as it is a great fun for the dog. There are always other dogs to play with and all safety precautions are taken to ensure the dog is not in harms way.

Experience:
Separation anxiety
Leash pulling
Senior dog-administering medication
Picky eaters
Clipping, grooming and bathing ( not professionally)

The Next Step
We require to meet all boarders to ensure that we are both the right fit. Usually this happens in our house so we can show you the space and the backyard. I do understand that sometimes life gets hectic and try to accommodate you as well by travelling to your house to meet. We are very flexible with meeting and doing trial runs. We ask that you contact me so that we can have a discussion beforehand about your dogs behavior and needs.

Daycare for Dogs
Is only provided on my off days during the week or weekends where we can give the pups 24 hour supervision.

Please note:
Large & Extra large dogs will be custom quoted at $3 & $5. A custom quote allows us to offer you a special price based on your unique situation or dog size.

When I met Agnes, I knew right away that she loves animals and is passionate about taking care of them. She rescued a feral kitten, whom I've been lucky enough to adopt, and thanks to her, "Zoey" became a very confident, social, little girl :) It is clear that taking good care of pets comes naturally to Agnes; she is thorough and intuitive yet not over-protective, giving animals the freedom to explore and be adventurous while ensuring their safety and well-being. If you want to leave your pet in loving, capable hands, call Agnes!

Anges is wonderful with all kinds of pets from big to small. She is an animal lover and it shows through when she is around dogs, cats and even horses!
I left my dog with her when I had to go on vacation for a month. And she took absolute wonderful care of him!
She contsantly was updating me with photos and just how he was doing, especially on those days when I missed him and needed to hear how he was.
He came back to me after the month very happy and well taken care of.
Would highly recommend!

Agnes took care of my dog Pickles for a week while I was away on vacation. I heard about her from a friend who also left his pup with her for 3 months and he was happy with her services. She is very friendly and loves animals. She was very attentive and asked a lot about my dog and what he likes. I would definitely recommend her for pet sitting if you need someone reliable.

Agnes' competency as a dog guardian came through from the moment we talked about arranging for her to take care of my Mini-Australian Shepard Dexter. She asked key questions that were very thorough and paid attention to details that I had not thought of. When I went on vacation, I knew he was in the loving hands of a true dog lover. I did not have to check in on him and came back to a happy, tail wagging dog. I look forward to Agnes taking care of my dog in the future.

Agnes has always held a special place in her heart for all animals and she has spent her life looking after and enjoying their company. She is an attentive and caring pet owner. Agnes loves to spend time with animals.

I have joined her on many of the long she takes dogs on when they come to stay with her and see the caring relationships she builds with them. She treats others animals as she would her own, with love and care.

Agnes was not the first dig-sitter who I trusted with my Goldendoodle Mickey. I have had numerous experiences with sitters who had good intentions I'm certain, after a week away he had red paws, ear infections, and was getting exposed to all sorts of nasty things.

I was recommended by a friend of mine to speak with Agnes and I decided to give it a shot - after a week with her, Mickey came back to me happier and healthier than ever! She took great care of him and is very passionate about what she does. I've finally found a great and trustworthy dog-sitter who I now recommend to all my friends. I am a client for life!

Agnes and I did a meet and greet earlier in the week to check that another long term dog would get along with Bosco. We met in the large park adjacent to their backyard which was great. The next week Bosco stayed overnight and did great. I was kept well up to date even though it was < 24 hours which I really appreciated as well.
Bosco will be staying for a month with Agnes and her partner after such a great experience put my mind at ease.

Can't thank Agnes and her partner enough fot taking care of our babies this past Christmas. Olle had spent some time there before and loved it. But we were worried our older dog would not do well. But there was no need for that as Agnes provided us with daily updates and even clarified some things we had not been specific about. She even took some adorable pictures of our 2 and Bali. We had thought there might besome issues with Bali a dog they have had for several month, in terms of jealousey or anxiety . But obviously they have built enough confidence in him that he was a great playal mate for our 2. We would not hesitate to use Agne's services again.

Had to leave Alexa for new years, but Agnes took great care of her. We met a coiple of days before her stay to see if Bali and her would get along. And boy it was a perfect match! I would definitely book again with her and would recomend her services for sure!

We were having some anxiety leaving our Olle over Christmas vacation, so we had numerous meet and greets with sitters. We ultimately chose Agnes because she was willing to meet and spend time with Olle on numerous occasions. Agnes was also flexible with drop off and pick up times. And also because Olle seemed to have taken quite a liking to Bali, the other dog in Agnes's care. We had Olle spend the day and this past weekend spend the night. Olle has so much fun that he was quite mopey to leave Bali. There is a park right behind their house so lots of running room. Agnes even sent us pictures of the dogs playing so well. We will be leaving both our dogs for 8 nights and we are confident that both dogs will be well taken care of and have fun as well. Shivanthie and Michael
