Let me be your Mutt's Hero! My name is Alex and I'm launching a dog-walking service in Ottawa called MuttHero. I'm also looking to open my home to our furry friends!
I've been a full-time dog owner for 7 years now and have decided to dedicate my time and effort into making sure the dogs of Ottawa get awesome treatment by awesome people.
I live off of Elgin street (very dog-friendly community) and the dog infrastructure is fantastic in my neighborhood. There is an off-leash dog park within a kilometer (Jack Purcell), the canal is within a half-kilometer, and puppy-friendly shops and cafes all over the place.
Your dog will never be alone as I have my own fur-baby; Dublin is her name and she is a 3.5-year-old Rottie/Lab mix. She's spayed, house-trained, extremely friendly, submissive, and social. All walks will include your dog and my dog. Since my day fully revolves around walking dogs in my neighborhood, there will be very few instances during the day when your dog is unsupervised.
Your pup will have the run of my apartment; it's a one-bedroom with a patio, some greenspace across the street, and some nice amenities including Air Conditioning. There will always be water and treats on hand to keep them hydrated and to reward good behavior. I'm able to accommodate any feeding or medication schedule.
I have a business relationship with a local pet store, so I'm also able to provide a few little surprises for your pup that can include premium treats and some awesome toys.
I require that your dog is well socialized, house trained, non-aggressive, fixed (spayed or neutered), and able to walk up and down stairs. They need to be able to be left alone for limited amounts of time unsupervised with another dog present.
I use positive reinforcement to maintain good behavior, will never physically discipline your dog, and will welcome your dog into my home like they were my own. Dublin will do the same.
