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.
