Hi and welcome to Oak Ridges Dog Sitting! My wife and I have flexible work schedules that allow us to be home for a good portion of the day. We have been dog owners our whole lives and our three children have always shared their home with a canine family member. We love all breeds, sizes and temperaments, so long as they can get along with our resident canine, Benny. Benny is a friendly 4 year old Bernese Mountain Dog who has a heart as big as he is! We have a spacious home with a backyard that is perfect for your pup to romp, lounge, and play in while you are on vacation or away on business.
Typically, each day for your pup includes 2 walks around our neighborhood plus indoor and outdoor playtime. Trips to an off-leash dog park can also be arranged (if you desire and only if your pet is accustomed to being at an off-leash park). Of course, your dog’s experience is tailored to their needs, so please be sure to let us know their “at-home” routines and your preferences. When your dog stays with us, they become a part of our family. We are conscious not to over book in order to make sure each dog who stays with us receives plenty of attention. We have experience with dogs & puppies who require training and/or retraining, as our family pets have always been rescue animals.
Typically, pets in our care are left unsupervised for approx. 5 hours each day. Visiting dogs are typically bedded down in the dining room/office area overnight, although they may roam freely on the main floor. If your pet is accustomed to being crated when alone and/or at night, then we will do the same while staying with us.
Prior to accepting any reservation requests, we do require a "meet n' greet" to ensure that your dog is a good fit and so that we can discuss your at home routines and expectations. We know first-hand how difficult it is to find care for your pet when you need to leave them and we ensure that your pet is cared for with the same love and attention as our family dog, Benny.
Please note that reservations with DogVacay are based on a 24 hour period. Periods less than 24 hours will be charged at $25. Rates are in Canadian Dollars.
