About Kara

17 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi There!

I have grown up with animals my entire life, and I am very qualified to take care of all different types of Pets. I have had calm dogs, anxious dogs, and aggressive dogs, and I have been very thorough in working through any issues the dogs/pets would have. My current dog is the perfect example as she is a tripod, rescued from another continent. It has been very hard, and A LOT of work, but I have the patience to work with any behavior the dog possesses. I have worked with some of the best trainers in Toronto, and have used the knowledge and incredible training methods that they gave me to apply to my dog now; which will help me with other dogs I encounter in the future.

My condo is 1100 Square Feet, with lots of space for your pet! I am a very active person, and because I am so close to Coronation Park, which has SO much greenery, your pet will get to run free in my condo, and then have lots of space to walk/run on leash outside at the park! My condo is located right beside an open park for those quick pee breaks, and within minutes to Lakeshore Path. Your pets are allowed on any of the furniture, unless requested by you, not to. Any special diet restrictions, please advise ahead of time. Fresh water will be out all day for your furry loved one! I will also ensure to provide a ton of photo's and videos of how you pet is doing daily, and to show you how much fun they're having on their vacation!

I work with a few different Animal Rescue organizations in Toronto, by doing the following services:
Event Planner
Fostering
Transportation
Reference Checks
Home Visits

I also worked as an assistant at Vet Clinic in High School for a short period, and I am currently enrolled in an Animal Welfare Certificate. This is an online course held at Thompson Rivers University in BC, which covers Animal Biology, Welfare, and Law; as this is the field I am trying to get into for my career:

Any other questions? Feel free to call/text me anytime! I hope to hear from you soon!

Kara is one of the most passionate people that I know, and her passion definitely extends toward animal welfare and care. I have seen her take care of animals, and it is obvious to see how much she truly cares for them. If she were to take care of your pet, I can say with 100% certainty that she would treat them as if he or she were her own animal. She is very attentive and loving, so your animal will not be lacking in love and attention. I can safely say that she always makes taking care of her animals a top priority, and she would do the same for your animal too.

I've known Kara for 10 years now. Over the years she has developed a passion for the animal industry specifically animal welfare. She adopted a rescue dog from Egypt with extreme behavior conditions such as severe anxiety and multiple phobias and has worked diligently and patiently to help her furry friend through her issues.
Kara is professional, reliable and a hard worker. She will be an excellent pet sitter because of her patience and experience in animal behavior, her true love of animals of all shapes and sizes combined with her excellent work ethic.
As a veterinarian I would entrust her with the care of my own pets.
