Please read our profile in its entirety before sending us a reservation request. Thank you! :)
I love cats and offer cat sitting as well as dog sitting! I'm happy to visit your kitty while you're away*. Even if it says I am booked, please contact me, I may still be able to visit your kitty!
*Downtown, Westend, Strathcona, Gastown, Commercial drive or Chinatown - Please message for rates as distance can play a factor
We try our very best to keep our calendar up to date but the best thing to do if you are looking for specific dates is to inquire by clicking "Ask Host a Question" on the right hand side of the page (in green text under the 'Make Reservation' Button). ------------->
Unless we are on vacation, we are always available for Meet-n-Greets!
We build relationships with our pup’s and their owners, you can see this by our high number of repeat guests.
We require a meet and greet & test night before any long term booking (test nights are free, ask me about this)
We only take ONE dog at a time (so we are a good option for people who have dog’s that are not particularly friendly with other dogs)
We typically only take bookings from new guests 1-2 months out, while existing guests can book further out
We reserve first pick of holiday dates for existing guests and only book these dates with new guests 1 month before if they have not yet been claimed
There may be an additional fee for drop offs before 5PM and pickups after 10AM (half day)
Rates may be adjusted based on dog’s needs (ex. 24 hour care)
We ask that all bookings be a minimum of 2 nights
We politely decline any dogs that have barking or howling issues (especially when left alone)
Your dog must be used to being left for 7-8 hours per day (we both work during the day). We try to come home for lunch walks, but this is not always possible.
Welcome to our 1000 sq foot apartment located on the second floor of a renovated heritage house.
We have a small back yard area and a huge porch for your pooch to curl up on. Our home is adjacent to a little neighborhood park, as well as is a stone’s throw away from both Maclean and Strathcona Park’s. If you’re dog is looking for some off leash time, we walk them over to the Andy Livingstone Park or the False Creek fenced in dog areas. We are also a short walk from the sea wall and Crab Park.
My boyfriend and I are both very active, so expect your dog to be walked several times a day -- or as needed. Other things also to expect if you entrust your doggy to us are: daily playtime, at home schedule replication (ie. Following their feeding/walking schedule), at home rules/boundaries enforced, and of course, cuddles).
We of course provide daily photo updates and activity reports.
Think of us as your dogs awesome Aunt & Uncle (without the spoiling them part). We dog sit because we love hanging out with dogs - and all the fun and unique personalities, quirks and characteristics that come with them.
We treat every dog we look after as if he/she were our own and we understand how hard it can be to leave your little friends in the care of strangers. You can see from our many repeat customer reviews, we also strive to create great relationships with owners too!
