David was an amazing dog sitter. He provided regular updates and showed great care for our dog Oli while we were busy getting our condo ready for sale. He made drop-off/pick-up seamless and answered all of our questions quickly. Oli had a great time and enjoyed his walks and visits to the dog park. Would highly recommend David and Oli looks forward to his next visit!

I recommend David! He was great with my dog - She was comfortable with him as soon as they met and when I picked her up she was happy. Thanks, David!

Free training and lots of walks!

Been a dog lover my whole life. Would love to have two of my own, but until I know my work schedule after school Im not making the major commitment to own a dog. I've watched my friends dogs for the past year, and even rehabilitated one that was fearful of other dogs, and got her sitting next to all dogs by the end of the two months. Because my classes are almost all on ...

What David would like to know about your dog

No preference with regards to breed, I don't discriminate

Some things I need to know in order to offer the best care I can.

Temperament (high energy? issues with dogs or people? Preferred times to eat/walk? etc)

Physiological needs (Back problems? Incontinence? Special dietary needs? etc)

Do's and Dont's for the Dog (Is the dog allowed up on the couch/bed? What are the dogs likes/dislikes? What behaviours should i reinforce, and which ones should I correct, are they allowed off leash? etc)

Any behaviours or cues that your dog may use to communicate with you, that will be helpful for me. Does he scratch at the door because he misses his owner? Or is he indicating he needs a walk?

Basically I need to know anything that will allow me to give your dog as identical an experience to what he's used to at home. Dogs love consistency and routine, and i hope to continue your routine in order to keep your dog as happy as possible.

When David watches your pet

There are two different locations I use for walks depending on the dogs temperament.

For dogs that are social and ok off leash, I take them to the dog park outside my building where they can play with other dogs and run around until they've gotten out all their energy.

For dogs who are less social, but still enjoy walks or runs, I take them through Mt Pleasant Cemetery where they can be away from other dogs, and have lots of new scenery to see.

Lots of playing, belly rubs and other activities in the home too!

Can accommodate any other types of activities you want your dog to do while they stay with me.
