About Emma

27 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi - my name is Emma and I love dogs! I have worked with dogs from the time I was about 12 years old for over 10 years at a boarding kennels (every spare minute I had) and have been a dog owner for 34 years.

I am British and live with my Canadian partner Fred in Unionville. By trade I am a midwife but I am taking some time out to settle into the community here as we are new to the area. I plan to teach evening classes for a while.

We live in a spacious basement apartment and plan to get a puppy in a couple of years when we move to a place with yard access but for now I feel that it isn't a great idea to have a permanent addition to the family. I am able to take our doggie visitors out several times a day, so if you choose to board your dog with us, rest assured he or she will be treated like royalty!

A usual day would look like this:
6am - 15/20 min walk with Emma (and her coffee) in the park next door to our home
7.45 - Say goodbye to Fred who goes to work downtown
8 am - Active walk (length depends on your dog's age and energy levels)
10am - Morning meal then some training games (at owner's discretion)
1pm - Quick walk for a pee/poop
3pm - Another proper walk for an hour or two - with lots of time to sniff and explore
5.00 Evening meal

If Emma is teaching an evening class then from 5.30 your dog will have time to sleep/rest alone until Fred arrives home at 8.30pm. (This only happens 3 times in a week during the week).

If Emma is not teaching then there is time to relax and play with Emma, help her to get dinner ready and get a low calorie snack for helping!

8.30pm Fred arrives home - another walk in the park, then time for cuddles with Fred. (Fred has been a dog owner twice before in the past - he loves dogs too)
10.30pm - last visit to the park then bedtime.

I like to switch things up a little when it comes to walks so walks will be local or more rural depending on what your dog is used to!

We can adhere to a feeding routine and diets and give any medications.

For as long as I can remember Emma has always loved dogs. Emma's last dog was called Otterlie and she was the sweetest, well loved dog you will ever meet. She lived a very happy and fulfilling life with Emma. So if your looking for a person to give your dog all the attention it craves and lots of hugs then Emma's the person for you.

Emma is one of the kindest and most inspiring people I have the pleasure to call a friend, I worked with Emma and about 15 years ago and have remained firm friends since, When my wire haired dachshund had puppies in 2003 Emma gave a home to one of them, and subsequently gave the most wonderful life to her puppy, Emma is a trustworthy, sensible and fun person and I would entrust Emma with my pets anytime.

Emma has always been so great with our dog, Angus. She seems to have a natural connection to animals- we've often referred her to friends as she's been so reliable with our pup. My partner and I would be away for sometimes a week at a time, quite regularly throughout the year, and Emma was always be so happy to look after Angus.

I miss her a lot now she's moved to Canada, I would definitely recommend her!

p.s I live in the UK now so cannot give a Canadian Zip.

Emma was wonderful with Mocha. She took her for many great walks and made my puppy very happy with fun play times. I would definitely book again with her and I highly recommend Emma for any boarding needs.
