About Meng-shin (Candy)

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there! My name is Candy and I'm an animal lover with an especially soft spot for dogs. I grew up with dogs my entire life, and just simply love to be around them.

During the past year, I decided to pursue animal care as a profession and worked as a veterinarian assistant. Being a veterinarian assistant really helped me improved my caretaking skills, and gave me the experience of working with a large variety of dogs with different personalities.

I live in a sidesplit house with a good sized yard, so that means there's little stairs and lots of green space to run around! All occupants in the house are over the age of 18, so a dog that stays with me will receive adult supervision at all times, whether they are doing their business outside or lounging the day away on the sofa!

A typical day with me involves two walks and lots of potty runs. I absolutely adore dogs, so you can trust me to spend as much time with them as possible to play around or simply just give them the love and attention they need.

Please contact me if you are interested, and I would love you meet you and your furry friend!

What a wonderful and kind person, Meng-shin is! We have known her for 12 years and she became fast friends with our little Riley. She has lived in our house to care for our dog and follows the routines that Riley needs. Often times, he likes to go in and out several times in an hour.....just to smell what's in the air. She is most accommodating. She also would take him for longer walks in the neighbourhood and I've always found him to be a bathed and well-groomed dog upon my return. This Christmas while we are away, Riley is going to live in Meng-shin's home and, because he now is a geriatric dog, she will be giving him his prescription drops. If there is emergency vet care that is required, I know Meng-shin will use her knowledge that she acquired while working at a vet clinic and deliver him to an emergency clinic.
I have every confidence that Riley will be well looked after and loved in our absence.

Candy took wonderful care of my nine year old lab. Multiple walks a day tired him out, for sure. He was made to feel very comfortable in her home making the bed, couch and chair his special places. Candy does a wonderful job of providing updates via photos and videos which makes you feel confident that your dog is being well taken care of. I would highly recommend having your dog stay with Candy.
As first time users, and our first time needing a sitter for our fur baby we were beyond pleased with our experience with Candy. She was incredibly understanding and sent us tons of photos while we were away. She attended to our pups needs and he had a great time. We'll def use her again. Her home was an ideal place for our pooch with lots of space and on a quiet street for walks. It was an excellent experience.
Thank you for your help Candy!
My dog Champ is a senior with separation anxiety, and Candy makes sure he gets plenty of attention when he's with her for daycare. She sends lots of updates to let me know how he's doing. She's responsive and accommodating when making a booking. I look forward to having Champ stay with her again in the future!
Candy, we cannot thank you enough for taking such incredible care of McCoy
Gus loved his time with Candy. He was well taken care of by a true dog lover. He will definitely be back to visit his new friend.
Harley's stay with Candy was perfect! She was very kind and accommodating after only messaging her less then 48 hrs in advance. Very convenient location and easy to find. Polite, friendly I would certainly book with her again if ever in need in that area.
Great experience with Candy. Last minute bookings available. Always quick to reply back to questions. Provided many updates throughout the weekend. Was very happy with everything. Would definatly recommend Candy to others and would use her again.
Meng-shin was an awesome dog sitter and we will definitely recommend her and leave our dogs with her again. She was very nice to deal with, reliable and great with our dogs. I'm pretty sure that given the choice, they'd stay with her over us haha. Lots of photo updates made us confident that they were having a good time and that the dog sitting experience was going well for both the dogs and Meng-shin. Thanks again!!!
Candy was a great sitter for my puppy! It was the first time I left my dog alone overnight and she had the best time! Candy was good at updating me on what was going on, and my dog had a fun time socializing with other dogs there. Would definitely recommend her :)
Amazing with dogs and very attentive! Definitely a great petsitter ??
She is amazing! Very caring, and sweet! My dog loved being there with her and will definitely book her again!
I was extremely worried and stressed leaving my pup for the first extended time, and that was only added to when my original plan for her care fell through the day before I left for my trip. Candy was so prompt and helpful with her replies, I was in for a meet and greet with her that night and she picked Olive up the next day. Through pictures and stories she let me know daily (and sometimes hourly!) how well Olive was doing, and allowed me to relax and know that she was in good hands. I can't thank Candy enough, I know that Olive had a wonderful time and I will certainly be booking with her again if I'm away!
Àwesome, dog seemed very happy and Candy made sure that she got lots of playtime. Would definitely recommend!
Mojo had a great stay with Meng-shin! The numerous updates and pictures were great - I never once had to worry :) She will now be our go-to dog sitter in Guelph!
