About Tanya

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
At my town home your best friend will be lovingly, cared for and treated as one of the family! Living across the street from a park we will go for three walks a day (morning, afternoon, evening - more if needed) and have play time in between. (There are four steps up to the front door and no other steps in the home).

PLEASE check my calendar before making a request. =)

NOTE: My place is tough for dogs that bark - I am afraid I cannot have an excessive barker due to my neighbours.

The animals have free reign but I can certainly kennel/keep off the bed/furniture if that is your preference. I work from home, but now also work part time at PALS Pets (Visitation Pet Therapy) outside the home, so while I am mostly around, I will occasionally leave for about 6 hours. I do a lot of my work from home, but sometimes need to be at the office where dogs are allowed (depending on friendliness and behaviour).

I recently had to say goodbye to my sweet Cooper so your pup will be getting some extra loving while here!

Owning elderly pets in my life, I'm comfortable with specific feeding/walk/medication schedules.

From the young ones to the old souls, I'm looking forward to meeting your furry family member!

My preference is:
- friendly, relatively well socialized
- can walk on a leash (and is not leash aggressive)
- is not an excessive barker - this is a deal breaker
(I live directly across from a park with floor to ceiling windows on three walls, it's difficult for many dogs).
- up to date on shots
- non aggressive

Puppies are wonderful, but must be house trained for both washroom breaks and puppy destruction. I work from home so I am around all day, but need to also get my work done. =)

Let me know if you think I would be a fit for your and your furry friend while you are out of town! (Check out LeaveYourLeash on Instagram)

Please note that my rate for taking care of animals in your home is based on the first pet, I do not charge this amount per pet - I offer a discount for additional pets, please request a custom quote in this situation!

We were so happy to have Martha spend the week end with Tanya. She was incredibly flexible with drop-off and pick-up times which was very helpful. She took amazing care of Martha and provided us with plenty of photos to make us feel comfortable with how Martha was spending her week end. She took Martha on walks, and played with her. Truthfully, we were a little worried Martha wouldn't want to leave (lol)! We would absolutely have Martha stay with Tanya in the future. She is a kind and caring person and you know it the instant you meet her.
Our two senior dogs had an extended stay with Tanya while we were on holiday and they could not have been better loved and cared for. Tanya posted daily pictures of them and we could see that the pups were so comfortable and happy with their stay. I wouldn't hesitate to use Tanya again. She truly loves the dogs that stay with her and treats them like her own. We're so happy to have found such a loving, kind dogsitter like Tanya. She's a gem!
Tanya was awesome. Professional from the first message right to the end of her stay. She guided us through the process and kept us in contact throughout our vacation with messages and pictures of our furry babies. She had a great attitude and we have great appreciation for the type of care that she provided both our animals and our home. Would highly suggest her to others! She was fantastic with our family.
Luna stayed with Tanya for 15 days while we were overseas on vacation. Upon first meeting her we knew we would have no trouble leaving our fur baby in her capable hands! Tanya is an obvious dog lover and has an amazing cozy home that our Luna had no problem settling into (and she’s usually very shy around strangers). Tanya made being away easy with daily photo uploads to her Instagram page and a very thorough update on how Luna was doing a few days into her stay. Luna looked like she had great fun on her three walks (gasp!) a day and we were even worried she wouldn’t want to come home!
Tanya is fantastic with dogs. She totally speaks their language. Sadie has a great amount of respect for her. Loved seeing photos of Sadie's time away having a blast on walks. Will definitely have Sadie go for more visits with Tanya
Mac and Maisie, seemed to thoroughly enjoy their time with Tanya. Walks and snuggles, equal happy doggies!
My pup Zero had a great time with Tanya while I was away. Lots of walks and cuddles. Tanya also brushed and bathed Zero, which is not an easy feat. I loved the instragram updates, which I checked regularly while I was away. I would definitely use Tanya again next time I am away. Thanks Tanya!
Tanya was great! I loved all the photos on her Instagram feed, including the adorable Christmas card she posted. Rosie had a great vacation and was an exhausted, happy corgi when we picked her up. I would definitely recommend Tanya and Cooper!
There is no other way to put it - Tanya is awesome!! She is such a wonderful, genuine person and we trusted her 100% with our dog while we were away. We were nervous at first about leaving her, but Tanya's picture updates comforted us. She treated our dog as if she was one of her own, which is all we ever wanted for her. Between the daily walks and all the affection / play-time, we could not have picked a better host! Thank you so much Tanya - we will definitely book again when needed :) You will not be disappointed if you choose to have your dog stay with Tanya!
Tanya was awesome! She was able to accommodate at the last possible minute and was a great host. Boston loved staying with her, Cooper and George and we loved the Instagram updates. Thanks to Tania for loving our boy like we do!
Tanya was amazing! I had a good feeling about her from her DogVacay page. Meeting her in person more than confirmed she would be great with Sadie, my 65 lb Shepherd/Lab. Judging by Tanya's adorable Instagram photos Sadie had a wonderful time. I'm sure in no time at all Sadie will be super excited to hear Tanya's name. She will definitely be going for another visit soon!
Given Sarah age (over 12) and her special medication and other needs we were looking for somebody with a good knowledge and experience in the field of pet care and we found Tanya to be an excellent choice. We received pictures of Sarah and periodic updates while on our vacation which was greatly appreciated. For sure we will call Tanya again in the future to help us with our Sarah!
Excellent experience! Tanya was caring and loving with my little girl, and kept us updated throughout her stay. I'll definitely bring Lola back to Tanya!
Tanya was great with Caspar. She kept him exercised and sent pictures and updates every day. Even the day we dropped him off. He'll be going back for sure. :-)
Bailey spent three fun filled weeks with Tanya and Cooper. Knowing Bailey was happy and being well cared for made our vacation even better. Tanya regularly posted pictures and updates of our little girl and her new friends. Tanya's home is right across the road from a large park and the dogs loved their frequent walks. Bailey and Cooper got along great and played continuously. Tanya is professional and great to work with. The whole process went smoothly from our first contact right through until the day we picked Bailey up. We really appreciate all the love Tanya showed Bailey and we will definitely leave Bailey with Tanya and Cooper again.
Our dog Ellie stayed with Tanya for 10 days in March. We rescued Ellie from a shelter in California in November and we hesitant to leave her at a boarding facility since it is very similar to an animal shelter. When we found Tanya on DogVacay we knew that we had found the perfect place for Ellie to stay while we were away!
Tanya is knowledgeable, kind, and has a huge love for dogs which put us at ease immediately.
When we dropped Ellie off, Tanya took the time to ask us questions about Ellie's routine so she could stick to it as much as possible. She sent us photos and updates on a daily basis which we absolutely loved. Ellie developed a little bit of redness on her skin and around her eye while we were away -- Tanya contacted DogVacay immediately, let us know what was going on, and offered to take her to the vet the next morning. We were very happy with how she handled the situation.
10/10. Will absolutely use Tanya for dog care again!!!
We're certainly glad we found DogVacay, and Tanya. Our dog stayed with her for 3 weeks, and seemed to very much enjoy her visit - even being up close and personal with a cat for the first time! Tanya was sensitive to our (old) dog's needs, and kept us apprised of her stay through regular notes and photos. We will not hesitate to have our dog stay with Tanya again.
