About Anne

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Mother-daughter dog-loving-duo available to care for your precious pup.

We live in a spacious two story condo in Toronto's upper Yorkville area, steps from beautiful Ramsden Park. There is also a possibility we can take your pup to our farm for a country getaway! We have taken several of our clients there before (see photos) and they loved it.

We lost our beloved 15 year-old Sheltie two years ago and welcome this opportunity to have dogs in our lives again. We do have dog-friendly cats, so your pup must be compatible with feline companionship.

Madeleine is in Graduate School and Anne is a retired TV producer. We've had dogs all our lives! Madeleine has had experience working at a dog kennel and knows that it can be a very stressful and unrewarding experience for dogs. We offer a calm, loving alternative with home-made dog treats, lots of cuddles, and a minimum of three walks a day.

Anne is the best! She will love your pup as much as she can! Great pictures sent every day and adores dogs! She took Mika (French Bulldog) in as part of the family be sure if you need a place for your best friend you can count on her.
These two ladies exceeded our expectations in so many ways!! Our puppy Charlie was left for 8 nights since we were not able to bring her on our vacation. We were so worried and felt so badly she had to be away from us. But we had nothing to worry about. Charlie got to stay in the city with these two dog lovers (and some of the nicest ladies we have ever met) as well as at their farm and their cottage. We were updated with pictures nearly daily. I saw our little Charlie having the time of her life. She was having fun as well as being well socialized which was amazing!! Even though our Char was happy to see us, I could tell that she really bonded with her new babysitters and they really fell for her. A success all around!
I would recommend Anne and Her daughter Madeline any time for your dog, they are really wonderful and will make sure that your pup is happy and well taken care of!

You are truly lucky if your pup gets to stay with Anne and her family. Charlie was so well taken care of that I believe he was a bit sad to go when we picked him up. Anne provides daily updates including photos, which was so kind and assured us Charlie was being loved-up over the holidays. Many thanks to Anne and her entire family for taking such good care of our fur baby.

Anne and Madeleine were ideal hosts for Lucy. It was our first time leaving her and we were so nervous about how she would adjust to being in a new environment. However, there was no need for concern as Lucy was settled into her temporary vacation spot within an hour of dropping her off! Anne was empathetic of our concern and emailed us that evening to let us know that Lucy was asleep on her lap after an evening walk. It was a nice gesture that made us instantly feel good about leaving her, so we could enjoy our vacation. We received daily photos and updates on what shenanigans Lucy was up to, including play dates at the park, climbing a snow bank, playing fetch, and snuggling with the cats. She was having as much of a vacation as we were and seemed to thrive in their care! What was most reassuring is that Anne and Madeleine (and her sister) seemed to genuinely love Lucy and care for her as if she were their own dog. In fact, it was evident that while Lucy was happy to see us, she was a little bummed to leave her second home. Also, she came home clean, tired, well fed, and happy. What more could a dog ask for! Finally, the drop off and pick up couldn't have been smoother. Anne knew exactly the right technique for making Lucy's transition seamless so that she didn't get upset when we left!

We will definitely book Anne and Madeleine again next time we go on vacation. Not just for our peace of mind, but because it was so much fun for Lucy!

Anne was a perfect host. Webster, our seven year-old Wheaten, had a wonderful time with Anne and her daughters over the long weekend. They sent us pictures from their trip to the farm and generally assured us that he was in great hands. Everything about the DogVacay process was simple and straightforward, and I would certainly recommend Anne to anyone looking for a safe and loving environment for their dog.

Anne was such a great find for us! She sent plenty of photo updates and our Riley had such a great time with her! We won't hesitate to book with her next time we are heading out of town. Her location was convenient and she was super flexible with pick-up and drop-off times so it made the whole experience really easy! Recommended 100%!

Anne and her daughters were great. Harley was well loved and exercised. We were very happy with the care he received and it made our trip enjoyable knowing he was happy.
My beloved Edgar stayed with Anne and daughter Madeleine mid-February for a week. The whole experience was awesome, they are truly amazing dog hosts! I received updates nearly everyday, and I could just tell how happy and relaxed my boy was in their care. I would recommend them for anyone who is looking for a worry-free vacation. I will definitely be using them again! Thank you Anne and Madeleine for such good care of my boy! Honestly folks, look no further...

As usual Betty was cared for, loved and spoiled by Anne and Madeline. We left her for 2 weeks while we went off to warmer climates and Im pretty sure she didnt miss us! Thanks again for your special attention and love to Betty, she truly has a second home with you!

Literally the nicest people! I've had to leave my dog Mylo on a few occasions in the past and neither me or my girlfriend have felt as comfortable leaving Mylo with anyone else.

I received email updates while I was gone, and they were more than accommodating on my last minute dog sitter need. In only a day I contacted them, met them, and dropped Mylo off. And throughout the process they were more than pleasant to deal with.

Mylo had a ton of fun at their place and at the farm on the weekend. When he came home he was tuckered out. Without a doubt Mylo will be staying with Anne and Madeleine in the future.

I can honestly say I didn't have a worry at all while I was away.

Betty spent the weekend at the farm with Madeline and had a great time. She comes back refreshed and so happy. I think she has found her second family! Thanks again.
We left Betty with Madeline and Anne for over 2 weeks and she was so well taken care of and loved, I didnt think she would recover! Betty went to their farm and I was sent pics of her roaming through meadows in doggie heaven. Although we missed her, we sure knew she was getting the best care and love, we werent concerned one bit. Thanks ever so Anne and Madeline once again for adopting Betty for 2 weeks and treating her like your own.

We could not be happier with the experience we had with Anne and Madeleine. They took such wonderful care of our little boy, Charlie - by the end of his stay it was clear he did not want to leave!! He got the chance to run and play at their beautiful farm and was clearly spoiled with cuddles throughout his visit. We have already booked more vacays and feel a huge amount of comfort knowing that he is going to be in such a loving and happy environment. We are so grateful to have found this wonderful family and know that Charlie is already looking forward to his next visit... we would recommend them to everyone!! Jill and Patrick

This review is a bit late but I had to write about how great a time Tony Stark had with Anne and Madeline. He spent a whole weekend with them and when I picked him up he seemed a bit sleepy after all his walks and visits to the off leash park. We will definitely be booking with them again!!!

As usual, Betty had a great stay with Anne and Madeline. She came back happy with a good report card. Dont know when we are going to be away next, but when we are, we will be letting you know! Thanks for taking such great care of our girl!
My dog had an amazing time!!! He got tons of exercise and attention. Extremely trust worthy and I was updated daily with pictures. Will definitely use them again.
Anne and Madeline are wonderful people, caring and concerned hosts. Betty enjoyed her time, went for walks and didn't skip a beat with her routine.
We have future dates already on the books and would highly recommend Anne and Madeline to anyone looking for a loving home for their dog while away. Thanks!
