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 27 years. My first dog a Rough Collie and then a Wire Haired Dachshund.

I am British and live with my Canadian partner Fred in Unionville. Fred is a very calm and happy person - dogs gravitate towards him, and he is totally a dog person. He has owned a Shepherd mix and a Boston Terrier in the past.

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 but can change depending on your dog's energy levels! Energetic dogs will get longer walks, low energy dogs will get shorter more frequent walks.

7am - 15 min walk with Emma (and her coffee) in the park next door to our home
7.15 - Morning meal
7.45 - Say goodbye to Fred who goes to work downtown
9.30 am - Active walk (length depends on your dog's age and energy levels)
1pm - Quick walk for a pee/poop
3pm - Another active walk - with lots of time to sniff and explore
6 pm Evening meal
6.30/7pm - Quick walk
8.30 - Fred arrives home - always exciting!
10.30pm last quick walk before bed.

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.

Couple of things to note:

We only board one dog at a time, this is to do with our rental agreement.

Arrival times are flexible if I don't have a dog checking out! If I have a dog checking out then arrival time can be from noon onwards.

Picking up time should be before noon, if you plan on picking up your dog after this time, please book for daycare on the day of checkout. (For bookings made after 1st January 2017).

Check out for daycare can be anytime before 10pm.

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.

First time using Dogvacay, Emma our host was awesome!! My dog was in a safe environment, and well taken care of. Can't ask for more than that. Looking forward to have Emma take care of Laci in the near future. Thanks Emma and Fred.
Emma is very caring and dedicated! You will not be disappointed, and your dog will be in very good hands. Also had an very good experience with our previous dogvacay sitter who was booked this time.
Emma was wonderful! She made sure that our dog got oodles of exercise and love while she had him. When we picked him up, he was was so relaxed. A great experience and we'll definitely use Emma again!
My lily got really good care. She had a really good vacation. Thank Emma.
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.
