We're a dog loving couple that work from home. Myself, I'm an artist and musician, and my partner owns a small craft brewery. I live very close to two large parks (Dufferin Grove and Bellwoods Park) and frequently take my own dog there for long strolls. We also have a small backyard and front yard (not fenced) for quick bathroom breaks and garden sniffs. We have a sunny porch with a long lead for sunbathing pups. If your dog is staying with us for the day, they'll get lots of love and plenty of exercise or rest, depending on what they're used to. We have a very quiet house on a side street, so it's great for low-key senior dogs as well. We do have stairs, but I can block them off if your dog would be better on one floor. Our neighbourhood is full of lots of things to sniff and explore! I am home most of the day, but often will sometimes be out of the house for a few hours.
We have one small dog, the sweetest seven year old poodle mix. If your dog is friendly, calm and good with small dogs, we'd love to have you stay with us! I don't usually accept puppies, but I do make exceptions if they are over 6 mos old. A special rate may apply since they need constant supervision. Looking forward to meeting you!
Pick ups are best between 9:00am and noon.
Drop offs are best any time after 3:00pm.
This allows us to ready the house for our next guest. If you need an alternate time, please get in touch.
Please note: I can only take dogs that are housetrained to go outdoors, not on pee-pads, in order not to confuse our resident dog. Also please have your furry friend on a flea preventative (Advantage/Revolution etc) during April-November season. (My dog is on flea/tick prevantative Advantix). We do have steep stairs, so your dog should be okay with stairs, or happy to stay on one floor. Thanks!
