About Deanne

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My partner and I work from home so we are always available to assist and play with our pets. We take walks at least twice a day from Dow's lake on the Preston Street side; there's no end of pathways and walking trails all the way from the Experimental farm down to the river with barely two street crossings.

Our home is quiet and relaxed, no kids just Danny, me and Riley O'Riley (he's a gentle black dog). We try to only take one guest at a time (unless they live together already).

Our home has a terrific second story fire escape walkway we transformed into an outdoor kennel attached to the dog's room. There's a magnetic curtain which allows them to go out and in at their leisure. There are no off-limits areas anywhere in our place, they can choose any spot they like to curl up in.

We are available for special needs and don't scare easily if you have a skittish pet.

Seemed fine when I dropped my pup off, but while trying to keep in contact with them and check in on my dog, they never texted or emailed back, nor answered all my calls, so I was constantly worried. My dog also wreaked of smoke when I picked him up so that's not something I was okay with. I do not think I would use them again.
Lucy, as always, had a wonderful visit with Deanne, Dan and Riley (her BFF). We are so grateful to have Deanne to look after Lucy when we are out of town and can't take her with us. We couldn't be happier with her care.
Deanne helped us when my Mum was in palliative care in Toronto. It was such a gift that we could know that Lucy would be well cared for when we were looking after Mum in her last month of life.
Deanne and Danny were so kind and loving to my Shaggy who was so mean to their dog! Deanne says that everyone got along eventually... I hope so! Shaggy is exhausted after 2 days there so I take this as a good sign :-) I really appreciated that Deanne contacted me half way through the first day to reassure me that everything was going well and that Shaggy was adjusting - she gave me all kinds of details that were just like my Shagster! I believe I have made new friends and will meet them at the dog park on occasion!
Rambo's first visit with Deanne was a wonderful one! He came home happy, and I'm sure that's because of all of the walks and attention he was getting on his dog vacation.

Deanne was very flexible and accommodating, and they really seem to treat the dogs like their own.
Lucy had another wonderful vacation with Deanne, Dan and Riley! We have such worry-free times away from home because of this warm and loving home away from home. Lucy can't wait to come back!
Lucy had another wonderful vacation with Deanne, Danny and Riley, who provide a loving home away from home for our girl when we can't take her with us. When we get home, she particularly misses Riley, who has become a great dog-buddy.
Lucy had a wonderful stay with Deanne, Danny and Riley. She and Riley are great buddies now and she was a bit sad when we brought her home as she loves canine company. Looking forward to our next visit!
My dogs had a wonderful stay at Deanne's. I would send them there again.
I was very lucky to have found Deanne, Dan and their dog Riley for Frankie on my recent trip. Frankie's regular kennel just closed, so with just a few weeks notice we found Deanne & Dan and arranged a meeting. I have two small children and Deanne and Dan took all the stress away in the meeting by helping with Frankie and going out of their way to make things easier for me. Leaving him was easy, as I felt he was in good, capable hands. I received photo updates as well as regular messages, which was nice to see Frankie and to know he was doing well. It was obvious that they have a real passion and understanding for dogs. I would definitely recommend them.
Deanne and Danny were awesome! They treated Barkley like a member of their family. I would definitely let Barkley have another vacation with Riley and his great humans!
Misti, our Bernese Mountain Dog, has stayed with Deanne many times and is always thrilled to go there. Deanne and her partner and their big friendly dog play with her, take her for runs and treat her like a member of the family. They love Misti and Misti loves them. Locate in an older part of the city, full of character and close to everything, Deanne offers convenient and affordable care for Misti when we need it. I would recommend this host without reservation. Thanks, Theresa
