About Carol

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We're Marc and Carol. Together we have years of dog-sitting and ownership experience, and are looking for the occasional furry friend to take out for walks along the seawall, ice cream dates, picnics in the park, hikes, shopping, etc.

We mostly work during the weekdays, but Marc is self-employed and usually has some flexibility to give your pooch some attention and time outside in the afternoons complete with belly rubs. However, guests should be comfortable with being left alone for up to 8 hours on occasion as needed. Evenings and weekends are no problem for us!

What makes our place great:
- We're less than a 10 min walk from the seawall - we love walks along the seawall!
- Close proximity to a few off-leash parks (Crab, Cooper, and Strathcona), but we would not take your dog off-leash unless you are comfortable with it
- We use natural cleaning products that are safe for our furry friends!
- Pet-friendly building with a dog washing station
- SW facing balcony with great views to enjoy
- We love sending photos and videos to document their vacay with us!

We will do our best to be consistent with your parenting style. Our doggy friends can feel at home at our place, but we have some rules about being on furniture. Please bring their dog bed or crate for comfortable sleepovers!

Our ideal guests:
Since we live in an inner-city apartment, we prefer to have guests who are well acquainted with apartment life, are friendly with other dogs in the building, and are not spooked by the noise in the hallway. We also have a resident kitty named Kiwi. She is independent and sassy as hell, but pretty chill if you give her space. We found that guests who have been around cats before are usually good with Kiwi. For these reasons, we will always request a Meet-and-Greet to make sure our home is a good fit!

P.S.: If you have a nice, gentle Doberman, we'd love to meet you! Or a Corgi. :)

Kita loved her stay with Carol + Marc! Photos and videos kept us updated and we felt better seeing how happy she was while we were away. Highly recommend and hope to use them again soon!
Carol was great taking care of Leo and dealing with his aggressiveness. Even though he was a bit naughty while staying there Carol was still able to deal with him until our friend was able to take over.
Carol was great with Milo yet again. He had a great time while we were away.
Fantastic experience! This was the very first time I left Ghost with a sitter and he came back to me looking like a million bucks. Carol ran with him every day, which was fabulous because my boy needed to shed a couple of pounds! She sent plenty of photo and video updates to put my mind at ease and stayed up late on pick-up day when our flight was delayed by two hours (thank you SO much for that Carol, I couldn't wait to bring him home for a cuddle)
This was my first time using Carol, but it certainly won't be my last.

Kingsley loves going to see Carol and Marc! They are excellent sitters who communicate well and look after him as if he's their own.
This was our first time trying DogVacay and Carol was amazing! She watched both Leo and Milo for us over the weekend, giving us a nice little break. She was even able to deal with Leo's separation anxiety like a pro. Both dogs came home very happy. Carol also provided constant updates through pictures, videos, and messages giving us peace of mind.

Carol and Mark looked after Kingsley so well! We were updated with pics and videos throughout which put us at ease knowing King was well looked after. They took him in as their own and visited the markets, festivals and parks to explore King's favourite city in true vacation fashion. Thanks so much to you both for an awesome experience :)

We had Marc and Carol watch our rather large and slightly neurotic dog for two full weeks. We couldn't be happier with them and the care they took with our dog. We loved the daily updates including pictures and short video clips. Our boy seemed to be having such a great time. We will definitely book with Marc and Carol again!
