About Tim

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I love dogs, especially large breeds , and have been around them all my life. I grew up with Samoyeds, Huskies, Labs, and Retrievers. I’ve also fostered dogs with the Toronto Humane Society.

My goal is to provide your dog with a SAFE, stress-free, comfortable and fun place to stay while you are away.

I try to limit my hosting to 1 dog at a time.(Unless they are known buddies, or currently live together.)
No added stress of an unfamiliar dog in the house. No worries if your dog does not socialize well with other dogs. In the case of a short booking overlap, my house is set up so I can easily keep 2 dogs completely separated and comfortable if need be.

I’m home most of the day, everyday.
I work primarily from my home office/studio and I need to take breaks too. I like to walk my guest dogs frequently, play with them in the yard, and even take them to the dog park (if you permit). No added stress and boredom of spending hours on end alone in an unfamiliar house.

My house is clean and uncomplicated.
Nothing fragile or irreplaceable to worry about. It also has a nice fenced yard in the back to run around in, and a big cedar deck to hang out on.

We loved the daily updates and terrific photos so we could see what our dogs had been up to. They seemed to settle in quickly. Also appreciate Tim's extensive background in caring for dogs, including his ability to give our dogs their pills and eye medications. His home is very dog friendly and the yard is securely fenced.
Tim was very easy to work with and accommodating to our schedule and our dog's needs. We got great photos and updates sent to us every day. We could tell that our dog was well cared for by Tim during our vacation.
Tim was absolutely amazing! He watched our "high-energy" dog, as we describe her for 4 days and 4 nights. He sent us beautiful photo updates daily which made put us at ease about wondering how they were doing. He was very comfortable and confident with handling her. We can't recommend him enough, I'd be confident in him handling any type of dog. Thanks Tim!
Francesca stayed with Tim for a couple days. She is not quick to warm up to strangers, and he gave her as much time as she needed to check him out. We did a meet and greet and he gave her the ability to roam the house and look over everything. He sent pictures of her lounging on the couch, and snuggled right up next to him. We would recommend Tim to anyone looking to leave their pet in a safe, happy environment!
My dog is a recent rescue so I was a little concerned about traditional boarding so soon after she came to live with me (2 months in). Boarding her with Tim seemed like an excellent alternative for her. She was happy to come home with me after my trip of course but she definitely got enough attention and love while I was away. She seemed perfectly relaxed with him and even went in to snuggle him a few times before we went home at the end of her stay. I'll definitely board with Tim again! Plus, he sent me a bunch of pictures from her visit with him while I was gone! It was nice to know she was well taken care of!
Tim was great- sent updates along the way so I knew how London was doing.
