I would highly recommend Deirdre. This was my first time using Rover and my pup Coco had a blast. She was probably disappointed to have to come home at the end of the weekend. Deirdre obviously has loads of experience with pets and I was instantly at ease leaving Coco in her care. Coco enjoyed lots of exercise and much to Coco’s delight Deirdre played fetch with her many times. I wouldn’t hesitate ...

I have known Deirdre (Dee) for almost 15 years now and for many of them she was not only my friend but my next door neighbour and also my dog sitter when we would go on vacation. I was really fortunate to be able to leave Emma (our fur baby) with Dee because I knew she gave Emma the same love, care and compassion as she did her own dog Drigger. I would highly recommend ...

Miles of parkland waiting for a pup

LOVE dogs! Had large dogs from birth to 2 yrs ago, when my last passed away :(
I live beside Jacques Cartier Park, in Gatineau, perfect for quick and long walks. 1st street across the bridge, near Byward Market. My french sucks, so I'm told, I do know the basic words but French pets would be subjected to anglais!I have used my Ottawa office address for English clients.

I retired, moved and then started up ...

What Deirdre would like to know about your dog

I am used to large and very large breeds, high energy and puppies. As before, I like longer walks, using my chuck-it at the dog parks however all dogs like play so I remain open to all requests.

I like the breeds many others may fear, dog training was always important in my house growing up and I used crate training (have a x-large portable crate) so if your pup is in training stages I am good with continuing your training routine. My dogs were trained to hand signal level.

I love all animals (except spiders) so if you have other pets I am happy to watch as well.

When Deirdre watches your pet

I like hiking so when possible if the dog is good with a drive I would head to trails, if the dog(s) “plays well with others” I would also hit a dog park. I live across the steeet from the huge Jacques Cartier park so great walks there too.

If at my place or yours there would be a lot of loving and play. My friends say I spoil their pups when they are here (or I move in). I was a regular dog sitter for friends in Toronto before moving here and really miss having a pup around regularly.

I checked unneutered pets so will ask what yours is so mixing with others is not an issue.

I spent 18 months traveling from hotel to hotel so have no issue with staying at a clients house for a few days or while you are away and negotiating other house sitting aspects “have laptop, will travel.”

I am a Reserve Veteran and been surrounded by Police/Miliatary my whole life, I am comfortable with service dogs.
