About James

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
One hour north of Montreal, we are a work-at-home, 40-something professional couple with a calm friendly dog in a peaceful neighbourhood. We love walks, and feel this is the best way for humans and dogs to bond and relax and to feel at home.

Raised by wild dogs, I've been caring for and walking dogs for over 30 years.

Most areas of our large 2-storey home are open to dogs. Under normal circumstances, dogs will never be left unattended. Outdoors your dog will enjoy the best of a country lifestyle, whether relaxing with us in our yard or out for one of the three daily walks that are part of our regular routine.

We have a very friendly Husky/Shepherd mix who happily interacts with other dogs of all shapes and sizes – or leaves them be, when they "vant to be alone". He is docile and laid back but up for a romp with a little encouragement.

As you can see from the photos, your dog will not be short of adventures if s/he is up for it! That said, we have also taken care of older and less active dogs who prefer a slower pace.

All canine guests are treated as though they are part of our family. Your dog's security, health, and happiness are our priorities.

Couple gentil et accueillant. Se sont bien renseignés sur les habitudes de notre chien et n'ont pas semblé embêtés par son enthousiasme. Environnement parfait pour notre Golden qui aime courir à l'extérieur. James semble s'être bien occupé de cela et nous avons même eu droit à des photos et vidéo de ses sorties à l'extérieur. Nous sommes très satisfaits et retournerons en confiance aux prochaines vacances.
