About Dale

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Pick-up & Drop-off included, within the City of Barrie.
2 full 1 hour walks daily + grooming (brushing).

Cats welcome $12.50/night. Discount for extended stays.

For decades, I have had the privilege of surrounding myself with both canines and felines. I enjoyed my work at the Animal Shelter. I offered a caring foster home for animals that were too young to be placed in adoption. I also interviewed those special people looking to adopt a pet to their forever home. I enjoyed walking every dog, for at least an hour, to give them their much needed exercise and, a break from their kennel. It also gave me an opportunity to keep physically fit!

Since the recent passing of Misty Girl, a beloved feline of 17 years, my humble abode can comfortably accommodate one canine or a couple of felines. It also offers a clean, quiet, relaxing and secure environment. I will accommodate two canines should the pair belong to one family.

My time with your pet is totally devoted to their care and individual attention. They are treated as one of the family and will be given all the privileges. I will provide regular check-in and updates throughout your pet's stay via email. These will include brief comments about your pet's feeding habits, play activity, any behavioural issues, etc. For your convenience, I will gladly provide Pick-up and Drop-off, within the City of Barrie, at no additional charge.

The nightly rate indicated is for a 24-hour period. For example: 10AM to 10AM the next day. Additional charges may apply for an extension. Custom quotes are available for these situations.

Custom quotes are certainly available for your feline friends! Dogs and cats will never be scheduled for the same day, unless a pair belong to one family.

A "Meet-n-Greet" for a new guest is highly recommended. This short visit allows for us, and your pet, to get acquainted and to provide an opportunity to discuss any specific needs prior to your first reservation. As I accommodate only one dog, you may choose to do this over the phone. I want to make your pet's stay as comfortable and worry free as possible.

DOG WALKING

Your Dog's Walk is a one-on-one exercise program designed to keep your dog on-leash. At least one full hour of fitness is geared toward the energy level, and stamina, of your dog. I am very familiar with Sunnidale Park, my preferred location.

Your Dog's Walk(s) are included in the cost of Boarding. Daily grooming (brushing) is also included.

Amazing. Dale was very helpful in settling my anxiety about leaving my fur-kids in the hands of strangers. I think Holly and Lacie were well cared for and they miss Dale and Randy. Thank you
Dale was absolutely fantastic with our very energetic 10 month old puppy. I loved the daily updates with pictures and a bit of info about how our puppy spent the day. I would highly recommend Dale and would most definitely book with her again!
It's a definite full stars! She updates daily and is very professional. You could tell that she really loves dogs.
