Gretel is amazing! She was able to accommodate my somewhat last minute request. Both her and her husband are such wonderful, caring people and my little guy Bentley had such a great time with them and Coco. Thank you so much Gretel!

Gretel is perfect. She won Mickey over instantly (a rarity) and if I'm to be honest: I followed lol.

I've struggled with Mickey a bit, as she doesn't trust new people right away, but there was almost no trace of that or trepidation from Mickey. Her fears vanished within minutes of meeting Gretel (and by luck Sebastian).

On my part: I trust Gretel 100% , which is the highest praise I have.

I'll give much love and fun

Hello all dog owners,

My name is Gretel and I am passionate about animals. This is one of the main reasons why I am vegetarian. I am a student in International Relations H.BA at York University and speak 3 languages (English, French, and Spanish). I will graduate this year 2018.

I am the mommy of two beautiful cats Izzy and Romeo and the princess of the house, my tiny chihuahua Coco. My pets are ...

What Gretel would like to know about your dog

Before taking care of your dog, I would like to know if your baby has been trained. What kind of behavior your dog has? Is your dog allergic to anything? Is your dog-friendly with cats and dogs?

I do not have any preference for a specific breed but pet owners need to take into consideration these factors.

1. I am ok with any dog breeds for a walk or extra activity outside. However, I would like to know if your dog is ok with other dogs. If yes, I will bring my Coco (my chihuahua) with us to have fun together if not, no problem I will let her at home. 

2. I am ok with taking care of your dog at my place but your baby needs to be ok with my cats and my chihuahua. Considering that I am living in a Condo, I only accept small breeds. 

3. I am ok to pet sitting at the owner's place and I am open to all breeds.

When Gretel watches your pet

Usually, with my chihuahua, we go for a walk in some parks in the neighborhood. Sometimes we love to walk to High Park as well. I also bring her favorite toy or a ball and we play together. I am a very sporty person. With Coco, I can't jog because she is too small, but if your dog needs an extra exercise, I will be happy to jog with him/her.
