About Carmela

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
At my pet-friendly home, your furry friend will be lovingly cared for and treated as a member the family!

My 2100 sq ft home in Edgemont (NW area in Calgary) has a medium-sized yard that is securely fenced. Located in a cul-de-sac, our home offers minimal traffic and is connected to a lovely off-leash park. Nose Hill Park is only a few minutes drive away. Your best friend will have access to three walks a day, weather permitting (more or less, if needed). Pets will have free reign in my home; but I can certainly kennel or keep them off the bed or furniture, if that is your preference.

I am a proud mum of a 4 year old, 23 lbs male cockapoo named Soda. He is playful and curious, but also very easy-going. He has a keen nose for finding socks! A visit to the off leash park isn’t complete unless Soda has greeted every dog and person in the park! :)

I typically spend about 30 minutes in the morning and another 30 minutes in the evening at the off-leash park closest to my house. In the afternoons, I spend 1-2 hours at the larger Nose Hill Park. I am around 24/7, but step out for occasional appointments/groceries/yoga classes and such.

Because of allergies in the family, I can only look after DOODLE VARIATIONS AND NON-SHEDDING BREEDS. I would also prefer to do a meet-and-greet with guest pups and their parents before accepting a booking request. Even though Soda is only 4 years old, he has a very mellow and relaxed disposition. I would therefore prefer that guest pups are a bit older or have similar temperaments. It is important to me that your dog receive my undivided attention when they stay at my home. Because of this, I will only accept one booking at a time though I will consider boarding additional pups from the same family. All dogs must be spayed or neutered, housetrained and must be up to date on their vaccinations.

Let me know if you think I would be a good fit for you and your furry friend. Go ahead, enjoy your worry-free vacation!

Carmela was fantastic to work with! We were able to meet with her and Soda ahead of time, so we felt comfortable leaving our dog with them. She provided lots of exercise and care for our high strung pup, and he came home happy and relaxed. We would definitely book with Carmela again.

Carmela took excellent care of Mindi, while Mindi was at her home.
I was not sure how a senior dog (Mindi) and Carmela's younger puppy would get along, but after seeing the picture updates, they were the best of friends.
I received picture updates, and status updates on a daily basis.
Once Mindi had settled in, (on the second day) she pretty well had picked out favorite spots to hang out in, and got along with every one.
Carmela also dropped Mindi off to my home, when I got back into town, which was totally unexpected and very nice.
I am very happy that I found Carmela, and plan on having Mindi stay there on any future times that I will be going away.
Thank you, so much, Carmela, I will highly recommend you, and your home to any one.

Our pup got tons of attention and exercise with Carmela. We received numerous pictures and video updates that put us at ease while we were away. Thanks for taking such good care of our girl!!
