When we suddenly stopped owning a car we needed to find a sitter within walking distance in a hurry. Ally looked great from her profile, and was kind enough to suggest a meetup at the dog park and then be completely unfazed when Bogart got overexcited and had to leave immediately. We got to know her and Takota over a meandering walk and chat and so felt really secure dropping Bogart off the first time ...

Ally took excellent care of my little morkie, who came back happy and tired and clean. Ally was very friendly and professional, as well as flexible with days and times. Her home is cozy and friendly and gives a good pet-loving vibe. It's clear that she knows a lot about animals and really cares for them, and it was so great getting pupdates and pictures while I was away! I would highly recommend Ally and ...

What Ally would like to know about your dog

I cannot currently accept dog with severe behavioural* or aggression problems for stays through Rover. (Our current place is only so big & not well suited for those who have to be kept away from other dogs.)

Any special/medical needs, allergies or anxieties are also always good to know.

*Separation anxiety, leash pulling, elimination problems and mild dementia are usually Ok, but please let me know so I can plan ahead.

When Ally watches your pet

Takoda and I are in a lovely and highly dog-populated, residential area of Centretown.
Our place isn't that big, but we're near numerous parks/dog parks (Primrose, McNabb, Jack Purcell, Laroche & Central Park) and only a block from the Tech Wall Dog Park.

At home we have a nice selection of doggy games, toys, treats and chewies.

Spa-style Grooming Add-on:
For those that require some extra pampering..
Bathing, clipping/trimming, brushing, teeth and nail & pad care are provided comfortably with dog-calming music and diffused lavender essential oil.
With a selection of grooming products and accessories, your overly pampered pooch will be coming home looking, smelling and feeling great!
