About George

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
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.

As usual our dogs loved being with Karen and George and their children.
Wicca's stay with George and Karen was fantastic and we will definitely be back! I felt totally comfortable and confident having my 13 year old golden girl stay with their family. From our meet & greet to her recent stay with daily pictures and updates, our experience has been nothing short of amazing. Thank you for the wonderful care you took of Wicca!
George & Karen were great. They made our dog, Miku very welcome into their family. We loved how George & Karen updated us on a daily basis with messages or pictures of how Miku was doing. I would definitely let Miku stay with George & Karen again if we need to go away again.
Angus had a wonderful time with George and his family. They have a great back yard and a big friendly dog named Benny who gets along with our dog. We appreciated the updates while we were gone. Fully recommend!
Our dog Bullet (a Labrador Retriever) was lucky enough to spend 10 days with George, Karen, their 3 kids and sweet dog Benny. They are a wonderful family that treated Bullet like their own and showered him with love and attention. We would feel privileged to be able to leave Bullet with them the next time we're away.

George and Karen took the time to ask us about Bullet's usual routine and did their best to accommodate it. We picked Bullet up a couple of days ago and the transition was extremely smooth. During his stay with George he had plenty of exercise and loved playing in their backyard daily. We're sure that he misses his new friend Benny and all the attention the kids gave him!
This is the second time George, Karen and children took loving care of our Baylee. Trust me if they were not up to par our Baylee would not have returned to them.

The pics and update were greatly appreciated. Our vacation was much more enjoyable knowing that Baylee was in good hands.

We first met George and his family when we cared for their pet. We instantly knew that we had a winner when it came to meeting others that have a genuine concern for the pets in their care.

This was our second time using George and his family to care for our precious pet and it certainly will not be our last.

We highly recommend George and his family should you need fantastic sitters. You will not be disappointed.

Thanks Everyone from all of us

George and Karen Did an excellent job taking care of teddy again Thanks George and Karen Rishni
George, Karen and there family did an excellent job caring for our Baylee. This was the first time Baylee has been away from us and knowing that George and his family were hosting her made our vacation that less worrisome. We hosted their dog Benny so it was even more relaxing knowing that she was with someone she knew.

I appreciated the advanced reminder of what to bring to ensure Baylee had a great stay. We were also comforted by the photos and videos they sent to us.

We had a great vacation knowing that Baylee was also having a great time.

I highly recommend this home and their children were also an asset in caring for Baylee.

Thanks Everyone....Job Well Done

George, Karen and family are very knowledgeable on dog behavior and ensured Angus had an excellent stay with them. We will definitely see if they are available to take Angus again in the future.
Karen and George's Family did an excellent job taking care of Teddy for two nights. Benny is a kind hearted very friendly giant dog. We will definitely book with this host again. Thank you for taking care of Teddy. Thank You, Avanthi
George, Karen, their three children and Bennie (Burnese Mountain dog) gave Daisy and Marlo a real home away from home.

Their family was so relaxed and comfortable with our dogs making us feel very content leaving them for a week. The girls had many walks, romps in the back yard and tons of cuddles. They were treated like family. I appreciated the photos and little notes from Karen while we were away. George and Karen also showed control with our dogs which is important when they both weigh over 100 lbs!

I would definitely leave our dogs with George and Karen again.
