About Robin

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a family of 4 with two dogs and two cats. We live in Kitsilano near access to parks and beaches. Robin works from home and will do most of the caring for the animals you leave with us. She has had a dog all of her life and has taken care of elderly and sick pets as well. She loves to be surrounded by animals and will take prodigious care of yours.

Our family dogs are walked twice a day morning and evening and are allowed access to the fully fenced backyard any time during the day often joined by Robin where they chase, roll and gallivant with dog pull toys and balls.

Our animals and therefore your pet(s) are not left alone for long periods of time usually just running out to drop off the girls at some activity. Otherwise the dog will have around the clock supervision.

We love to take dogs for hikes/walks through the endowment lands or to Spanish Banks dog bark. We also like Hadden park near the maritime museum but depending on the time of year it can be crowded. Your dog will join ours for frolic and fun.

Your will be allowed to sleep where ever they are comfortable and there are many separate areas where dogs can be partitioned if they prefer to sleep alone. We do have crates but primarily so that they are alone spaces for the dogs where they can den and feel comfortable, the doors are usually kept open and unlocked

Most of all the girls love dogs. They will accompany Robin and Paul on the dog walks, they will run and chase and play with the dog at the park or in the backyard and be part of our extended family for the stay.

Booking fees for boarding are for 24 hours and for daycare are for 12 hours. If your stay is not within these time frames please feel free to ask and we will try to work something out. Please make sure to confirm drop off times and pickup times are available if you haven't booked with us before. We are flexible but are a busy family too. Thank you we appreciate your business and cooperation.

UPDATE - please note that if you are booking in April or May on the weekends your dog may be taken to a mountain retreat. We go up on the weekends to whistler and your dog is welcome to come. The house is a puppy friendly personally owned chateau with dog runs and parks close by. As in our Vancouver home your puppy will be cared for walked and played with however note that this means if you are booking for the weekend your dog must be dropped off on friday before 6pm and will not be available for pickup until 7pm on Sunday. If you have questions or are looking for different hours please just email me an inquiry as I may be able to accomodate.

Robin took great care of Murphy while we were in town for a wedding. She was extremely flexible with our schedule and very responsible. Murph had a great time.
Despite a big snowstorm, Robin went out of her way to make sure snowpatch got enough exercise. She and her family have a big heart and lots of love to share with our fur babies.
Robin was great--very professional, stayed in touch with photos the whole time, and Scout seemed to have a great time.
Robin was excellent!
Robin was great and VERY patient and accommodating with Tocco. Her responses to message were quick and efficient. Tocco didn't want to leave her. ??
Roo was happy and well cared for with lots of affection and attention. Thanks Robin and family!!
The reservation, communication, drop off at Robin's and drop off by Robin at arranged place all went perfectly and Robin took a great care of Bobby, our dog. We certainly would use Robin's services again. We will highly recommend Robin's services to all.
Hugo had an awesome time! One happy pooch :)
Robin took really good care of my dogs.
Robin was great, bronx was super happy! Thank you!
Robin has been amazing for our pup Scottie. Scottie is always excited to be spending time at Robin's. We have dropped Scottie off many times over the last few months and we would be happy to do so in the future. Robin is easy to communicate with and flexible about pick up and drop off. We can’t recommend Robin enough!
Robin's response to my request was fast and everything was arranged quickly. I felt Penny would be in a safe, warm place when I dropped her off. Looks like Penny got along well with Robin's pets and got lots of love. Thanks for looking after our puppy while we were away for the weekend.
Robin was very sweet and Cupcake seemed to enjoy her stay very much. I loved that i got pictures and videos. I am booking with Robin again right now!
Making reservation with Robin was super quick. She was very quick in responding and accommodating. My dog Coby, an energetic lab mix had a wonderful weekend stay with Robin. He had such a wonderful time, swam and played so much, he probably didn't want to come home. Thanks Robin for looking after him and providing Coby an excellent weekend vacay :)! We will definitely send Coby back again.
Very accommodating!
My puppy was happy and well-rested after spending the day with Robin, thank you so much!
Robin was truly wonderful with our dog Spirit. It was hard leaving him with else for the first time. He started warming up to her. She took him for walks & tired to make comfortable as much as she can.
Harley had a great time staying with Robin and her family. She sent me photo updates daily and was very easy to communicate with. I wouldn't hesitate using Robin again!
Toby's stay with robin and her family was great. He got to experience pack life, with their two family dogs and one other canine guest, making him the fourth dog. Her two little girls gave him lots of love and attention, and the whole family seemed to be well accustomed to caring for animals. She sent me tons of pictures of him having fun on walks, at the beach, and chilling at their home. When we picked him up he was happy and tired. Overall a great first experience with a dog sitter, we will be sure to contact her next time we are away.
Robin was very accommodating, I had to extend my dogs stay because of unforeseen circumstances and Robin was able to look after him for another day. Titus had a good time with Robin and her other pets.
Robin is a truly wonderful sitter. Ellie, my labradoodle puppy, had a terrific time with Robin and her family, playing in the yard, going on walks and hikes, and hitting up the beach. Robin sent me loads of photos of Ellie having a blast. Everything was a breeze from drop-off to pick-up. Highly recommended!
