About Vicky

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My husband and I live in a small bungalow beside a large park with a fenced back yard. Behind the park is a large open space where we walk all the dogs, offleash or not depending on the dog (s). We currently have an 11 year old miniature poodle named Chester. We had 3 dogs and 2 cats but sadly 2 of our dogs and one of our cats have passed away in the last 2 years. We have no human kids so we devote all our time, love and affection to our dog and 1 cat and to our guest dogs. We have baby gates everywhere to keep dogs in or out of rooms as needed. We also have doggy cams that allow us to check on the dogs while we are out grocery shopping or at work dependiing on the day. My husband is home all day on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and I am home all day on Saturdays and Sundays. On Mondays and Tuesdays the dogs are on their own from 9-5pm. We don't accept chronic barkers because my husband works the night shift and therefore sleeps during the day. We keep Meg in our walkout basement when guest dogs have no experience with cats. She doesn't mind as she gets the entire basement to herself.


PLEASE NOTE - My rate covers a 24 hour period. Beyond that the rate is a flat fee of $10 for up to 5 hours. Beyond that a day rate of $25 applies.

Vicky is a very involved and caring host and the pictures and videos she sent us were extremely welcome! You can tell Vicky is very experienced and comfortable with all types of dogs and her calm demeanour helped our "type A" dog relax around the other dogs. He came home happy, healthy, and with some new dog friends. We will definitely be using her dog sitting services again!

Vicky was PAWSOME! Jake had some separation anxiety and she was very patient with him and kept me informed. The photos and videos reassured me that he was having as much fun on his break as we were once he settled in. We will definitely be asking her to look after him again!

This is our second time leaving Toby with Vicky. This time, it is an extended stay for one week. Toby had a great time at Vicky's as anticipated. We will definitely have Vicky dog sit Toby whenever we go on vacation. Vicky is very knowledgeable, and they truly love having dogs around to care for.

Vicky was a fantastic host! She accommodated us on a very short notice, and Bonnie definitely loved being around her. Vicky's home is set up for pets (gates, doggy cameras, pet beds everywhere), which shows how much she loves animals. We absolutely recommend Vicky :)

Vicky responded immediately to all of our questions making the reservation process so easy and quick. She was very accommodating when our dog had to stay longer than planned as well. Our dog was very well cared for and had so much fun at her house! And the photos were great to see! Thanks again!

My dogs had a great stay with Vicky. Her house backs onto a park, so my dogs got spoiled walking and running around. She is very friendly and was accomodating when my dogs had to spend an extra night. Would highly recommend!
I will definitely recommend Vicky to any of my friends. She is very experienced and genuinely loves taking care of dogs. We were worried that our puppy will cause her trouble because he started to mark recently and seemed to have endless energy when other dogs are around. Luckily Vicky had dog diapers on our drop off date, which reassured us that she's dealt with situations like this before. She is very good with updating us about how Toby is doing (including pictures and videos). She even took Toby with her bike riding to tire out that endless energy.

Toby had a great time at Vicky's place. We extended his stay by one day due to changes with our plans, and Vicky was very prompt with accepting our changes.
Shelby came home a happy dog, something I was quite happy with. Vicky kept me informed od her activities, and any issues as she noticed. I would recommend her and will use her again!
Thanks to Vicky we were able to leave Dobby without a worry! She was exercised daily and spoiled. We also got videos everyday and photos to ease our minds while we were away. Thanks so much Vicky for spoiling our fur baby!
Wyatt had a great time with Vicky and her pack, and got loads of special treats, like blueberries! Lots of walks. Lots of videos of walks, which were really nice to get.
Vicky is happy and relaxed, and she loves animals, she just shines with it. Bryn always has a great time there and is well looked after and taken for walks. Thanks Vicky!
Vicky is a dream come true. Thank you so much for taking such good care of Bryn and welcoming him into your pack!
Vicky was a brilliant host and Bryn my dog was so happy! Lots of walks, cuddles and treats. Thank you Vicky, I am SO glad we found you!
I was able to book with Vicky on very short notice, she took very good care of my giant dog. Would recommend anyone to use Vicky!! Thanks again!!
Vicky was very good with my 14 year old golden retriever . Walks in the off leash park and good care in the home. Thanks Vicki (and David)!
I received photos and videos from Vicki while I was gone that melted my heart. I could tell my little pups were having a great time. She really put extra heart and extra care into caring from my dogs.
