About Kristy

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Currently I have no pets, but I've grown up with large dogs all my life I love dogs and miss the void Jester, my German/Aussie Shep, left in my life and would love to help people who need a responsible and loving caretaker for their cherished pets.

I have worked with dogs on a part-time basis as kennel staff for Intelligarde International Inc. in 2007 walking and care-taking for (very intelligent) service protection and bomb protection k-9s and in 2015 I worked as a swimmer and receptionist at FitDogs in Riverside where I learned about dog dynamics in large groups.

Through this experience as a host I have applied some techniques from my previous work experience with animals that have helped me better handle large groups of dogs as well as aggressive dogs.

I live in a house with a fenced yard situated by the Scarborough Bluffs and there are a lot of great trails and ravines to walk through. My neighbourhood has a lot of dogs also which is great for socializing at Sylvan Park at the end of my street.

I'm also TTC accessible with a flexible student schedule attending Centennial College Morningside campus only 10 min bus ride away from me.

Currently I have school 3X a week, where I will be away from home for 8 hours at a time. I also have one crate for large breed dogs.

I plan to communicate to current reservations about meet and greets to arrange a mutually convenient time (usually Saturday mornings) until I am fully booked. I will only accept dogs that will stay well together, which makes my job And your vacation go a lot smoother :)

To keep dogs safe and happy I usually gate the house so they have their own space for when playtime is over or if I have dogs that aren't social. When I run errands while hosting multiple dogs I keep them in a large spare room (see photo ) and one room per dog to avoid any mischievous behaviour while Im gone.

I have NEVER had issues with aggression along the gates, and I've hosted three dogs at once who were not dog social. Im the alpha dog and I have a stern no nonsense demeanour when it comes to displays of aggression towards my other guests :)

Please book for an **extra day if you feel that will be the case. I can accommodate pick ups in the late evening, if necessary, until 10:30pm for an *additional charge of $20* otherwise please book an extra day thank you

Kristy is a wonderful host. She put our mind at ease at the Meet and Greet where she arranged that we also meet the other dog staying there during our vacation. Kristy also checked in with us before hosting any other dogs. She was available via text and also sent pictures and videos. I truly feel our puppy had a great time!
We are so lucky to have found Kristy! She took great care of our special-needs dog, kept us updated with regular texts and photos, was accomodating of our schedule. Our dog was immediately comfortable with Kristy - she clearly has that special something :) We highly recommend her and will be booking with her again in the future.
