About Robin

11 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have had cats and dogs my entire life and as an adult have been sole caretaker of at least one dog for the last 10+ years. I like the intelligent active breeds - border collies and aussies and that is what I have now. I love training them and taking them on all my adventures with me and giving them lots of exercise on a daily basis. My best friend Ellie, the black and white border collie, recently passed and I have a new Aussie/BC mix Nuni who is coming along nicely and turning out to be a smart pup with quite a personality.

I have sat for many dogs and cats over the last several years, in friends' homes and in my own home as well. From one cat to five dogs, I have had quite a group! I think it's fun.

I live in a duplex, so it's not huge, but I do have a 100% fully fenced in back yard with backdoor access (not a doggy door), and a basement that the last cat I hosted for a couple months loved to hang out in. I am on a quiet street and there are two large parks on either side of my house. I'm also very close to Goodale Park and I enjoy taking my pup there.

I can feed your pet one to three times per day, administer oral medication if necessary (cat or dog) take it on numerous walks, play fetch in the backyard and maybe teach it a new trick! I've taught my dog to do burpees, to bring me socks and shoes, to ring a bell to go outside and many other things.

I am happy to host any cat and any size dog (even the big guys like a Great Dane or a Mastiff), but I'm not comfortable with any dog that displays aggressive behaviors (including with food and toys). I will only host one client's pet or pets at a time, so they won't be meeting other unknown dogs except my own. As such, they must get along fine with other dogs. My dog is ok with cats.

Robin was phenomenal in giving our 3 special needs dogs what they needed. I never left them with anyone and was very nervous but from the first moment of the meet and greet, I knew they were in great hands. When I received the pictures she sent while we were on vacation, it was obvious they were comfortable and happy! I am definnately using Robin for future vacations or any daycare needs we have because I know they will be safe and happy! Her little fur baby Nuni is super sweet and inviting to her guests!

Robin was great with Josey Wales, and was willing to be very flexible with scheduling and arranging pick-up and drop-off. She sent photos and even a video of Josey playing with her pup Nuni, and I was glad to know that Josey was in good hands while I was gone.

Robin was very nice, had a dog-friendly house & small fenced yard, and her puppy made a great play companion for my Vizsla. She communicated with me in a timely manner and made her availability flexible for me. She also sent nice photos and videos of my dog to keep me posted on how happy he was in her care. Highly recommend.

Robin was super! She looked after my home and my furry baby Annie. Annie had a great time with Robin and her puppy Nuni. I also came home to a clean house! I will be happy to repeat this experience and hope to have made a friend as well.
Robin house sat for us for two weeks, taking care of two dogs and two cats, as well as the mail, the houseplants and the lawn. She did a great job, and we arrived home to four happy animals and a clean house. She also brought her 3 month old puppy with her, who turned out to be a great playmate for Bruno and Baxter. Robin was responsive to our communications throughout our trip, and sent photos periodically.
