About Jake

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello!

My name's Jake. I'm a dog owner and resident of the Parkdale/Libetry Village neighbourhood of Toronto. I have over 15 years of hands on experience with horses, dogs, cats, fish (both freshwater and marine) as well as rodents. In particular I have extensive experience with senior dogs, puppies, as well as dogs that require medications.

I live in a spacious loft in the south end of Liberty village. With 12 foot windows and 18 foot ceilings. The space is very bright, breezy and comfortable. My building also has a shared green space with trees, gardens and a fire pit, perfect for mid day pee breaks and play time.

Rufus, my 1.5 year old Rat Terrier mix and I are adventurous. We love to canoe, hike, walk, run and explore all of the beautiful spaces our city has to offer. Our favourite stomping grounds include, Stanley Park, Bellwoods, the Lakeshore parks and green spaces and our favourite, High Park.

We look forward to meeting you and your furry family!

Jake was great, always a good communicator and a pleasure to deal with.
Jake was an awesome sitter and we wouldn't consider anyone else! He provided multiple updates each day to let us know our buddy was doing well. He was very helpful, friendly and flexible to our needs. His dog Rufus is darling and we think our dog genuinely misses him too.

Jake was great - very responsive, clear communication, and my two guys loved him. Will definitely having them stay with Jake again.
Jake was amazing with my 4 month old puppy. He kept me updated with pictures and videos. Mocha had a lot of fun playing with him and Rufus. I will definitely use him again next time and I highly recommend. Thanks Jake!!!
Thank you Jake for taking such good care of Brooklyn. It is so nice to know I can go away and know that Brooklyn is with such a kind and caring dog sitter. I will definitely be bringing Brooklyn back for another vacay.
This was my first experience using DogVacay and Jake made sure it was completely seamless. He responded promptly and took the time to meet Paco and I before accepting. From the first meeting you could tell he understands dogs and our little guys got along so well so that put me at ease. Throughout the trip Jake kept me updated on how Paco was doing, sending lots of photos. I would definitely recommend reaching out to Jake if you're in need of a friendly, reliable sitter. I know I will again in the future!

Jake was wonderful and Boon was so happy when I picked him up.
Jake was an excellent host. My dog seemed very happy about his visit! He was nervous to be left behind but by the next day Jake told me he would not leave his side. Jake kept me up-to-date with how it was going with texts and photos. We'll certainly call him next time we leave town.
