^v ^"Hello there! We are Thomas and Angela! We are so excited still as we have just moved into our newly built home since Fall 2016! We hope that your lovely dogs can come to our new lovely home and to stay with us in this sweet sweet home during their dogvacay! We love dogs all our lives!! I(Angela) am a full time pet sitter!! I have been with dogs for more than 20 years since I had my first dog in Hong Kong in the early 90's. Recently I(Angela) took the Professional Dog Walking certificate program at the Langara College, which gave me a chance to learn more about dog behaviours, city bylaws, and much more! This program enhanced my knowledge about dogs. My(Thomas) family member adopted a Beagle(boy : p) since 2012 from a website. He is just amazing! Smart & intelligent! He warms up the whole family with love and laughter! When he came to our family, he was just 1 1/2 year-old. His former owner speaks Mandarin, and he picked up so quickly for our language(Cantonese)! He is a cute little Snoopy! We(Thomas & Angela) both are dog lovers & dog carers as well. Your dog will be stay in a comfortable environment at here! You can provide us with your dog's own belongings(examples: bed, toys, dog food, can food, dog treats, leash......) as we recommended. We love to Meet & Greet with yourself & your dog! Welcome to our home!! We hope your dog(s) will enjoy (= his/her dogvacay at our place =) !!!

We have a 14-year old cat with health issues and I was worried about leaving him when we went away. We are so fortunate we found Angela! She came to our home to check on Maomee every day and took excellent care of him. She was very diligent in updating us on her daily visits, sending pictures and emails. We felt like we were right at home with Maomee and it really put my mind at ease and allowed me to enjoy my vacation. Angela is very responsible and so caring. She will follow all your instructions exactly, but she also goes above and beyond. I can’t recommend her enough. We will definitely have her come back next time we go away. Thank you so much Angela!!

That was happening in the last year around Fall. My daughter had a very short notice to go to the school in Toronto. I found that I didn't know who could help me to look after my dog, Akita. During we were chatting in a leisure group, I suddenly remembered "Angela" this name, I remembered she said she was an animal lover. I met her once in a while during the leisure group I joined in Vancouver. So I talked to her about my situation, I told her I needed someone to look after Akita for 9 - 10 days. She thought for a while then replied to me she was able to help. Akita is a Bichon baby girl. Akita has food allergies & skin allergies. During the boarding period, I kept contacting with Angela since I did expect my little Akita might get the allergies quite easily. For example, she can get the allergy from walking by her body touching different plants or grass. Around on the third day, Akita had the allergies started! Angela reported to me Akita scratched her body vigorously and the skin got redness. Luckily my son had time on that day, he could make it to help me to go to the vet to buy the medicine for Akita, as she usually takes when she is having allergies. After my son had dropped off the medicine to Angela, I told Angela how we fed Akita the tablet normally. Since Akita was facing the allergies issue, I just contacted Angela a bit more often with text messages as I would like to make sure everything was going well. Later on, Angela sent message back to me saying Akita was getting better as she scratched less and her skin's redness area was getting smaller. I felt that Angela got the patience to take care of my baby Akita and, also towards myself, because I kept messaging her for that several days!!!! Angela was so helpful, and I thanked her for her patience to help & love Akita as much as her own pet!!

I have a strong bonding which makes me need to go back and forth between Canada and China from time to time. Significantly, I need the dog sitting service for my dog Bibu (a Coton de Tulear) while I was away. He is a very energetic cutie-pie which is normal for this young buddy. He needs our attention & play with him! I have a friend knowing Thomas(Dong Tao), and my friend introduce him to me for dog sitting. Therefore, last time when I went back to China, I had asked Thomas to help me to take care of Bibu. That was about a month for that trip. In the past, I had tried the boarding service from a dog kennel. I found that my dog's (butt)hair was so dirty. I guess it's properly because they have so many dogs to take care at a time, so that there ain't any "full" cares there for each puppy! On the other hand, the time Bibu stayed at Thomas' home, he got the right cares from Thomas! I did not need to worry if Bibu could get enough & safe playing time or walking time! Cause at Thomas home was just like one on one, or two on two service, which more make sense to me of providing an adequate dog sitting service. Also, I could contact Thomas some times to message/to talk to him about how Bibu was doing when I was still in China through WeChat(which was free)! I would say, Thomas is a reliable pet sitter!

Wilbur (my 9 yr old lab) stayed with Angela and Thomas for 3 nights and it went very well. They are really nice people and went out of their way to ask lots of questions so that they understood his needs and habits. It was apparent that they really love dogs. Angela would send me photos regularly and Wilbur had a great time. Communication was very good. Another plus for senior dogs is that they are on a ground floor unit without stairs. I would definitely book with them again.
