About Sarah

22 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a dog-loving family and love the outdoors. We have had a lifetime of experience with dogs and puppies. We live downtown (Yonge and Bloor) in an area surrounded by several different parks. There is plenty of space to walk and run around in the neighbourhood. Rosedale Ravine Trail and Harold Town Park are also very close to us. We prefer small to medium size dogs. Our entire family loves animals. My daughter takes care of our neighbour's dogs when needed. I work from home and my husband's schedule is also very flexible. Your dog will have a great time with us!!

WOW! Sarah and her family were so attentive to my dog’s needs. Despite him only being a 12 week husky puppy, they welcomed him with open arms in their house which was VERY clean, warm and inviting. The level of attention that Echo got far exceeded my expectations and they even gave him a bath after asking permission!!! Echo came back clean, tired and very happy...almost didn’t want to leave. In the husky world a tired puppy is a happy puppy. I got constant video, image and message updates throughout his stay, even in the wee hours of the morning. I would highly recommend Sarah & her family in a heartbeat. Centrally located in a great place in the city, it has easy access and they are very accommodating of all your needs. I’ve already booked them again for next weekend, and my dog remembers the route to their home! Cheers!
Sarah and family were very helpful, thorough, and friendly. We received photos and videos daily. She would even ask questions when she had some concerns about his medication. It was good to see our dog in good hands.
Jerry had a great time with Sarah! She met us downstairs and helped us with our belongings. Before I had even got home she had already sent me a video of Jerry in his new surroundings! Throughout the day we kept in touch and I got one more video and some pics. When I picked him up he was happy and all tired out. Thanks, Sarah for watching my dog!! I knew he was in good hands.
RaRa loves Sarah, Fiona, and Derrick!!!
Amazing as usual!
They were great taking care of our pup. We received daily updates, pictures, and videos of our baby. He seemed thoroughly entertained and happy during his stay. He played with other dogs and went out a lot which he needs. Always nice to share info with dog loving folks such as Sarah and her family. Would recommend!
Sarah and family were excellent with our dogs. They were more than willing to do a meet and greet, and patiently answer all of my questions. Our family is new to the area and we were concerned about leaving them for the first time. Sarah made it a great experience and kept us updated with photos and video.
Sarah was great! She lives close to me so was very easy to work with and she took great care of Poppy. :)
Great experience, as usual!
We love Sarah!!
Amazing as always, RaRa loves them! They take such good care of her.
Another great job.
Sarah is very accommodating and my pups love staying with her.
After sending my pup to Sarah's for the weekend, I can see why she has a constantly high rating! Her and her family took care of my dog like she was their own! I was nervous, as this was my first time using DogVacay but Sarah was great at sending me updates. My day was definitely made whenever I got a video or photo from her!

I certainly recommend trying to get Sarah and her family to pet sit for you. And I will be contacting them again if I ever need someone to look after my doggy!
Our trip was extended by a few days and Sarah was great at accommodating us last minute.
Sarah and her family were great at keeping us updated with pictures and video while we were out of town. Baca proved to be a handful (chewing her leash) and Sarah handled everything gracefully. Thank you from us + Baca.
Alfie had a great time with Sarah! Made lots of new dog friends and spent a ton of time outside playing at the park.
Amazing service and very accommodating
I received a photo/video of my 6 month old pooch when Sarah and her family was taking care of him on the long weekend. I had only booked her a couple of days prior and she was accommodating to my late pick up time at 12:30 am. She had him for about 8 hours, so not a long stay at all. But he seemed to have been well taken care of.
Henry and Alexander had a wonderful time at Sarah's and are going to stay with her again in a couple of days time. Sarah and her family obviously adore dogs and took excellent care of mine with many long walks and a lot of cuddling and playing.
Sarah and her family were amazing!! Cosmo had a great time with them. Sarah kept me in the loop of everything by sending fun pictures and videos of Cosmo's stay! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great pet sitter!
Excellent excellent excellent experience! I had to book last minute because of a work trip that came up. Sarah was incredibly responsive and accommodating of my schedule. My dog Timothy had the best time ever. Sarah and her family took him to the park everyday and basically showered him with attention. They took a ton of photos and videos so that I could even see my little buddy despite being far away on a work trip. The best part was the fact that I got home a little earlier than expected and Sarah so kindly met me at my house to drop off my pup at no charge. She said she would happily do it because she knew I would be tired--it was so thoughtful and kind. I am SO using Sarah again; it was literally the best experience ever for my pup and me.
Sarah and her family were great with Bella. They made it easy for me to go away and feel that she was in safe, caring hands. Sarah sent videos and pictures many times throughout that day. I would use them again without hesitation the next time I am away from Bella.
Sara was very accommodating and treated Bella very well. I would highly recommend leaving your best friend if you're ever away on vacation.
Best first experience ever! Highly recommended. Kept me posted with pics, made me feel very safe even though this was my first booking. Thanks so much Sarah!
Sarah and her family were great caretakers of my two-year old Cavapoo. They were very responsive, accommodating and took lots of photos. Most importantly they seemed to really enjoy having him stay and he seemed to really like them too!
We moved to Toronto in 2015, same year that we met Sarah and her family. We are really thankful to have a place we trust to leave our loved dog when he can not join us in some of our trips. Sarah, her husband and daughter are always very friendly and careful with Duke. They send us pictures everyday and are really easy to contact, rapidly answering our text messages. They are very comprehensible too. This last time we had to come back home later than we arranged, but Sarah didn't mind staying with Duke more than expected. I really appreciated that... As dog owner's, we know how hard it is to leave our pet with someone we don't know... We felt that way before meeting Sarah and her family... Now, it's good to know we can always count on them!! Thank you Sarah!! :)
Sarah was very friendly and helpful despite how mischievous my pup is!
Always great!!
My 2 dogs stayed a few nights. That had a great time! It was the first snowfall and the hosts sent my lots of pictures and videos of the boys playing outside.
There were maybe 5 or more dogs in a double condo - and my dogs were ok with that. Lots of people supervision too.
Very good communication from them - I went back early and they were fine with it.
This was the 2nd visit, and we will go back.
Great dogsitters, very accomodating even though we were a.bit late picking up Noosa at the end of the weekend. Our dog had a good time and we received photo updates everyday. Thank you again,
Sarah and her family were wonderful! They sent pictures everyday showing Bo having a great time. We highly recommend Sarah and her family for your dogs next vacation! Thanks Sarah!
My dog's stay with Sarah was great! Her family was very accommodating and flexible with pickup/drop off. I could tell he loved his time there!!
Sarah and her family were wonderful hosts and bent over backwards to accommodate my last-minute request. They coordinated among themselves to make it work and even sent me pics, though Sadie was only there for a few hours! When I picked her up, she was relaxed and happy. Thanks for everything, Sarah.
This was our dog Lukas' second stay with Sarah and family! He did really well and they took great care of him! Sarah is amazing at being in touch with us with updates which we love getting. Sometimes it's a text, a pic or even a short video. We really
appreciate how attentive and quick to respond Sarah is. Thanks Sarah and family!
It was simply wonderful to have my dog (Latte) with Sarah and her family. Communicating with her was extremely easy, since she replied so quickly every time. Sarah always sent texts and photos of Latte everyday for the entire stay and I could tell Latte felt at home and was well taken care of. Latte is also a picky eater, but Sarah was very accommodating to that fact. She also gave Latte a bath, even though it was only a weekend stay. I was anxious about leaving Latte, but Sarah is reliable and I trust her to care for Latte. I would book with her again!
Noah had an amazing time with Sarah and her family! We received many photo and video updates every day we were gone and he looked super happy! He was exhausted when he got home from all the play time! We highly recommend Sarah and will take Noah back whenever needed! Thanks again!
Sarah is amazing! Always so friendly and excited to look after our dogs. She is very attentive and always sends photo updates which we love to get. The dogs are always so excited to see her!
This is our fourth visit using Sarah and consistently very impressed. She has a sincere care and connection for dogs as is true with her family. Our dog is always happy when he is dropped off with Sarah, which is a tell tale sign of his connection with Sarah and especially for a dog that is usually timid with others. Sarah spends lots of quality time with Paddy and keeps us connected constantly with pictures. We highly recommend Sarah.
Sarah was wonderful. We were vacationing and in Toronto for the first time. She was so accommodating. Was able to watch Penny two days in a row. She checked in frequently, if she had any care questions. And sent me lots of pics of Penny looking so content. The second day was a long one and I had no worries about my fur baby being well taken care of. I would highly recommend Sarah. Thank you Sarah! Penny will miss you!!
Sarah was amazing! We are so thankful to her as we were in a pickle last minute and she gladly took in Simon and treated him like her own. He was walked a lot, loved, and she sent us updates through the evening. If we are ever in Toronto again, we will definitely request her again! Thank you Sarah!
She's always great! RaRa loves her :)
Sarah and her family were great with Murphy. She kept me updated with texts and a video. He can be very stubborn and she was patient with him, letting me know what she tried with him and even gave him a bath. He likes that. He came home tired and smelling great.
I would book with her again.
We boarded our Dog for 1 night, Sarah was great and she responded immediately for a next day booking. she kept us updated the entire time.
Sarah was very patient and attentive with my dog, I would definitely have him stay with her and her family again
Henry had so much fun his furry guests! He will stay with Sarah again.
We were extremely happy with Harley's vacay experience. Sarah and her family seemed to know immediately how to connect with him. He got lots of exercise and love. The daily photos and updates were so appreciated.
Our experience with sarah and her family was very good. They sent us videos and photos about Hanna every day during our trip. Hanna got home tired, slept the whole day...I guess she had fun and took good walks.
Henry loves his vacay! Sarah and her family was a great host. Made Henry feels at home and loved. Highly reco!
Sarah and her family treats Henry like his own baby. Henry got pampered and the royal prince treatment. Highly reco!
We rarely leave our dog at all so going away for four days was a big deal for us.We are thrilled to say that Sarah, Derrick and Fiona took amazing care of our dog Lukas. They asked lots of questions to ensure that they understood him. We were really happy with their attention to details and for updating
us with texts, pics and videos! It put our minds at ease. He went for lots of walks and got loads of
attention. They are very genuine and professional
to deal with. We'd highly recommend Sarah and her
family to anyone.
Sarah was amazing and the texts and pics of RaRa were so necessary. Pup was happy with her from the first greeting, this was my first time doing this and I'm glad I met Sarah. She has a real understanding.
Atila and Maximus were with another host, who could not carry out the complete vacay; thankfully Sarah swooped in and was able to take the boys on short notice. She sent a bunch of photo's everyday, kept in regular contact and asked any questions.

The boys looked like they were having a blast with Sarah and her family! The day they came home, they slept for most of it.

I would highly recommend Sarah and her family to look after your fur baby, we will definitely be using her again!
We found Sarah and her family last minute. She was very flexible and reliable. Our Chinese Crested Lady was with them for two nights. Sarah kept us updated every day and Lady returned to us as a happy dog.
Sarah sent daily photos and kept in touch with us while watching Malachi for 9 days. We was in good spirits when he returned and seemed well taken care of. I wouldn't hesitate to leave him with Sarah and her family again.
We've been leaving our beagle, Cricket, with Sarah when we go away for a little over a year now and she's wonderful. She sends updates throughout the stay, always gives her a bath, and takes her for a ton of walks. Cricket requires special care in a few ways and Sarah is always diligent about it. I never worry when we leave her with Sarah, and it's wonderful picking up a clean and sleepy pup when we get back.
Sarah and her family took very good care of our little yorkie, who is a very picky eater. Sarah kept us informed everyday on how our little one was doing - she was concerned when our little when would not eat at the beginning, but with all her care, even hand feeding, our darling got better and ate his food and the special treats that Sarah made for him.

We highly recommend Sarah as a Dog Vacay host.

Thank you Sarah & family.
Our Poppy was in the best hands with Sarah and her family. Sarah was a natural with Poppy immediately when I was concerned that our puppy would be nervous being left. She has a confidence and loving interest in the dogs that is crucial for a happy stay. Sarah sent me updates by texts and a couple of photos for our reassurance. Poppy even had a spruce up and came home smelling fresh as a daisy! I would recommend Sarah to anyone looking for a caring host.
Sarah, Derrick and Fiona were amazing with Shakespeare! After our initial meet n' greet, I felt at ease about leaving our pup for a night. I got some great updates and I knew Shakespeare was in good hands. They were more than accomodating and our pup was very happy spending time with them.
Sarah and Fiona were so wonderful! My dog, Sasha, is 10 years old and has some serious heart problems. Sarah made sure she received all of medication twice daily and even hand-fed her dinner when Sasha was being picky! I received all kinds of photos and updates while I was away and felt secure that Sasha was comfortable and being shown great affection. I would highly recommend Sarah for any dog sitting opportunity.
Sarah and her family were absolutely wonderful with Sasha, she is very high energy and she came home all tired out - a blessing after all that traveling home! We got great video and photo updates while we were away so we never had time to worry. They were very lovely, attentive and you can tell they really care about the dogs in their care - we would have them watch Sasha again in a heartbeat next time we go away. Thanks again!
Sarah and her family took exceptional care of our dog while we were away. She has a wonderful way with dogs and put our anxious dog at ease immediately. We received lots of pictures and updates during his stay—he always looked to be having a wonderful time out on long walks and resting at home. I'm so grateful that we've found such great care for our dog when we need to be away. Thanks, Sarah!
Sarah and family were great with my Beagle. They took her on plenty of walks and were attentive to her allergies and medication. We got plenty of updates so we knew she was OK and she came back happy and healthy!
Very proactive and helpful. The whole family was lovely and Charlie came home well exercised and smelling like daisy! The experience exceeded my expectations...Thanks to all...Sue
