About Justine

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs

*$2 for every overnight stay will be donated to a local animal rescue.*

February donations will go to Dog Tales in King City, ON.


Hey there, thanks for taking the time to read my profile! My name is Justine and I love animals of all shapes and sizes. I am a recent English graduate, working full time in marketing. I have experience with all kinds of pets (cats, birds, rodents, & reptiles), but there will always be a special place in my heart for dogs. I have been professionally house sitting through DogVacay since May 2016, and hope to pursue this full time in 2017.


I do not currently provide boarding services; however, I would be more than happy to sit your pets at your home. I will personally work with you to ensure the most comfortable & fun experience for your furry children. Not only will your dog(s) have the time of their life, your home will be cared for as well. I provide house care services (free of charge!), including watering plants, taking out garbage, shovelling driveway, picking up mail, and caring for any other animals you may have (fish, cats, birds, reptiles, etc.). Your fur babies get to keep the same routine as they normally do. I understand that your pets are your family and I will care for them as if they were my own. House sitting is a great option to ensure your pets are as comfortable as possible, and all of my focus remains 100% on them!


Saturdays & Sundays are completely devoted to sitting, so make sure to book in advance before someone else snags your getaway weekend! Depending on your location I may be able to stay overnight on weekdays, but please keep in mind I'm at the office from 9am to 5pm, and your animals will be alone during the day. I can also do walking and check-ups in the evenings & weekends only. Shoot me a message and we can work something out!

I currently service: Kleinburg, Woodbridge, Bolton, Nobleton, King City, Schomberg, Caledon, Maple, Thornhill, Richmond Hill, and Markham. Other regions may be subject to an additional driving fee.


Please don't hesitate to schedule a complimentary Meet & Greet, where we can all get to know each other (fur babies included).

If you're not sure whether we'd be a good fit, send me a message and I'd be happy to tell you more about myself.


Overnight sitting: $50/night (2 dogs included; each additional dog thereafter: $25/night)
Walks: $20/half hour; $35/hour (2 dogs included; each additional dog thereafter: $10/walk)
Drop-ins (30 min): $25

Amazing experience! Justine was a true professional right from initial contact. She immediately connected with our pets, remaining in constant contact before the stay and providing ongoing updates to keep our minds at ease throughout.
I must admit, we had some hesitation with going ahead with our booking when first checking out this website. Justine managed any possible concerns with her open personality, friendly demeanor and expert approach toward interacting with and tending to our dogs. She took the time to make us feel comfortable and got to know our home and our dogs beforehand so that she was well equipped to manage and care for everything.
I highly recommend Justine to anyone considering DogVacay - she is the best possible sitter to guide you through the process and give you a level of ultimate comfort. Definitely going to use her again and I am confident the dogs are looking forward to spending more time with her.
Apologies to Justine for the delayed review - time really got away from us as we got into the end of the year. This experience was definitely worth sharing for all the right reasons.
This was our first reservation on DogVacay. We were very worried about leaving our cat, Smudge, at home while we were on vacation. Justine was awesome from the meet and greet and got along well with Smudge. She was professional and sent us regular updates throughout. She also left us a cute pet report and greeting card after the visit. It was a great experience and we would not hesitate to use her services again. Thanks Justine! :)
I was nervous leaving my beloved senior dog at home overnight until I met Justine! Right from the moment we met at our meet and greet I knew she was perfect! Her kind demeanour and friendly personality put me at ease immediately. She was extremely professional and wonderful with Dixie. We were able to enjoy a worry free weekend knowing that she would be spending time with Dixie. She kept in contact with us throughout the weekend, sending pictures and updates. We came home to super happy dog who obviously felt no anxiety by our time away. I can't say enough about how great Justine is and how wonderful our experience was. Will definitely be contacting Justine over and over again!
Justine was available on very short notice to walk our 2 dogs. Upon arrival, she sent us a video to let us know they were OK and a text when she left. Thanks again, Justine!
After my wife came home from vacation, she needed an additional night walk. Justine helped out at a moment's notice. Thank you :)
We had reservations about leaving Eko and Momo in someone else's care, and were definitely worried about a whole week. We met with Justine a few times prior to the full house sitting, and throughout our experience with her, she has been warm and professional, while also establishing a great relationship with our furries.

I couldn't recommend Justine anymore highly (ultra pawsome?!). We felt completely comfortable, and getting cute and funny pictures/videos/updates, was just what we needed to be able to enjoy our vacation.

Will definitely use her and Dogvacay in the future, and would have no issues at all recommending Justine, and also be a reference if needed.

Justine has walked our two dogs twice, and will be house sitting for us for a week at the end of August. She has been fantastic so far, and we feel that we are leaving our two furbabies in very capable hands.
Justine did a great job with taking care of our furry children while we were away on our 1 day trip. She spent the day with them at our home, let them out, provided them with food and water as needed and cuddled with them just as we do. Thank you so much for taking care of our babies while we were gone and for being a companion to them in our absence. We will definitely be using Justine again!
This was my first time using DogVacay but definitely not my last !! I had to leave Zoe overnight for a wedding and felt so secure leaving her with Justine. She updated me several times with pictures; they played, they walked, they snuggled and I just know Zoe loved spending time with Justine. She left my home just as she found it and Zoe was her happy self when I got home ... zero guilt !! I'm thrilled to know if I need to go away again I can safely leave Zoe in the comfort of our own home with her new friend :)
