About Art

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Art. My girlfriend Yulia and I love all sorts of animals especially dogs, but unfortunately we don’t have any of our own at the moment. I've always had either a dog or a cat since I was very little.

We live around Broadview and Danforth area which has lots of parks, hills and lake not far. We have several dog-off-leash areas at the neighborhood. I'm very active person and would be happy to spend time outside with your pet.

Our apartment is pet-proofed spacious and comfortable to host 2 or 3 dogs. We always home sit pets for our friends when they are away from town. In most parts my girlfriend stays at home so your furry friend won’t feel the lack of attention. We will take your pet out at least 3 times a day. Your dog will get even more exercises than he/she usually gets at home.

We are trustworthy and responsible.We know how important it is for your pet to keep daily routine, so just let us know about feeding and walking habits,training cues and diet restrictions if there are any.
We will provide you with our special puppy questionnaire to understand your pooch's special needs and quirks better.

Everyday updates and photos will guarantee your peace of mind while you're away. As I already mentioned my girlfriend mostly stays at home, so when it comes to pick up&drop off times - we are very flexible.

We have experience with all types of dogs small and large breeds, puppies and old dogs, calm and hyper. Every pooch is unic and needs special approach and we can reassure you that he/she would get it.

I also provide dog-walking service at my neighborhood area and can take care of your pet at your house as well. When house sitting at your place plants watering and litter and mail managing would be provided.

Have experience in managing fish tanks, ferrets and exotic reptiles.

Bunk had a great time with Art - thanks again!
Art is amazing dog walker & my pup Tyler is a huge fan. Art was easy to correspond with + co-ordinating details was a breeze. Looking forward to using Art's services again & again in the near future.
Art and Yulia took care of our young dog, Murphy, and our two cats, Seamus and Claire, for a week. It was our first time away from each other and we were all anxious of how it would go. It turns out we had nothing to worry about - Art and Yulia are amazing! We got regular updates with pictures and Murphy just adores Yulia. We would highly recommend them as sitters and Murphy, Seamus and Claire all give them a high five. We will certainly use their service next time we need a sitter!
While traveling to Europe last spring Art and Yulia watched our pug Prada, our lizard Izzy, our fish, and watered our plants. We were nervous as it was our first time using Dog Vacay, and the idea of leaving our pug Prada and place made us a little anxious.

However it turns out our anxiety was unnecessary. Yulia and Art did an excellent job. The provide us with a status update and photos a couple of times. We will definitely be looking to book them again in the future.
This was a good experience. Yulia was on time for pick up and drop off and sent me great pictures of Beluga during his stay with her and Art. Recommend without reservations.
This is the 3rd time Art has taken care of Echo, and we are always pleased to know that she has a great time! I highly recommend Art, and will be using him again!!
This is the second time Art and Yulia sat our dog Yoshi. They are great hosts, reliable and caring. Yoshi came back well taken care of and happy.
Art was in touch with me very frequently with updates and pictures of activities with Yoshi.
I would absolutely recommend having your pet stay with Art and Yulia.
Art and Yulia were amazing. This was our first time leaving our dog Nugget with someone and it was for 10 days. Every other day I would receive photos, a video and comments about Nugget. My daughter would be so upset around bedtime because she missed her puppy and all I had to do was open up my emails and show her how much fun Nugget was having. It would put a smile on her face and she would go to sleep. Their communication was second to none. I would recommend this couple to anyone and I'm sure they will be seeing Nugget again.
Sasha had a wonderful stay with Art and Julia. I never worry when she is with them. They take amazing care of her.
Extremely upset. Planned to leave my dog for 16 days and the trip was cut short to 3 days due to my dog having separation anxiety. My dogs been left with other sitters before and I never heard the complaint that he's barked all night or that he's squealing. Even with the new sitter haven't had a complaint like that. Not sure why my dog acted that way with just this sitter but it was not fun knowing my dog was happy and the sitter could no longer take care of him when I was nearly 6 hours away with no way of coming back right away to pickup my baby. Not Happy At All!
Art & Yulia were great hosts!! Brady went to daycare for two days at their house, and both were extremely flexible/accommodating. Brady returned to us happy and exhausted, and fell asleep for the night as soon as he got home! He was excited to return the next day - will definitely contact you again when we need help. :)

I was delighted with Ben's care in my home over the past weekend; he had a wonderful time! I had no worries as I was kept informed and sent pictures. I would not hesitate to recommend this sitter - and plan to re-book soon and often!
My dog loves to stay with Art and Yulia! Normally she had anxiety when staying anywhere outside of her home and I have never seen her experience it with them!!!! I am so happy and don't worry when she is in their care.
Very polite and inquisitive about Louie and his needs and temperament right down to sleeping arrangements . He was happy and I could tell by his energy he had definitely been walked. Very impressed!
My dog George had a great stay with Art and Yulia. Pictures and updates kept me feeling confident that I had left him with good, kind people. And they were very understanding when my flight was delayed making my pickup really late.
Art and Yulia are amazing hosts. The respond to your inquiries right away, the provide updates about your pet's well being and mood, and they send you pics to ensure your peace of mind while you are away. But most importantly they took a really great care of my dog, I can tell she enjoyed her stay with them. Thank you guys!
Both my wheaties spent the evening with Yulia & Art. They seemed very happy and nice'n tired out when we picked them up. Thx again!
We stopped in Toronto on a cross country road trip and were strapped with what to do with our dog. Knowing no one, and our main service being USA only we stumbled on DogVacay. We were able to attend the Blue Jays game worry free and have a little break from our pup on the road. Art was excellent!
Our dog had a great time, communication was excellent and we got frequent updates on the days activities, would book again, thanks!
Art and Julia took wonderful care of Sil. They were very attentive to her needs and very thorough in asking about every detail of her schedule. I would love to have my pup stay with them again in the future
I had to book Tucker last minute and Yulia was amazing in communicating with me. He had a great time...forgot about me after a few minutes. Tucker was nice and "tuckered" out when we got home.
We were very comfortable in leaving Ava with Art. Would recommend his place to any dog.
My puppy had a great time and was very happy when I got her back! Art and Yulia took my booking very late notice and were very easy to contact! Thank you so much guys!!
My dog had an amazing stay. I've never left my dog with anyone I didn't know so I was a little nervous but I felt comfortable leaving her with Art and Yulia. He kept me informed and sent picture updates so I was able to see she was enjoying her long walks with them. She seemed well taken care of when I picked her up. Would definitely recommend and rebook!
Our dogs came home from Art's place very happy and healthy. They weren't even that excited to see me! Art was very professional and accommodating. Thanks!!!!
Art was great. I highly recommend him. Our dog had a great time staying with him and he was really responsive and kept us up to date with how things were going while we were away. We will definitely use Art to look after Ringo again. Thanks.
Art was fantastic! Easy going and accommodating when our flights home were delayed. We really appreciated the daily updates/pictures. Would not hesitate to recommend Art as a great home away from home for your pooch.
Art and his girlfriend were great! They took our booking last minute and were flexible with a very early morning drop off. We know our pup Pixie had fun as she was exhausted when she came home that evening...proof that she got lots of attention, exercise and play time while with Art. Thanks guys! We will definitely book with them again.
Art and Julia were great with Caesar and kept us regularly informed of his stay, would recommend him to others as well not hesitate to board with him in future
Art was great! Our guy Duck seemed to have a fine time staying with him and his girlfriend. Their apartment building is right on some green space so it looked like Duck was able to get lots of outdoor time. Art was also very responsive, quick to communicate, updated us with photos, and was flexible and easy about drop-off/pick-up. Thanks Art! We'll definitely be boarding with you again.
