I don’t think I even need to wait to collect my little boy as Karinne is extremely friendly and I already know my puppy is in the hands of one of the best! Karinne welcomed me in a very friendly manner and her house is clean and is a safe environment for little puppies. She sends me updates with photos of how my puppy is doing and takes care of him more than I ...

Thanks so much for this wonderful review Min! Your puppy was so much fun to take care of. I'm ...

My dog usually takes a while to get used to new people but he was instantly in love with Kiwi! I would definitely recommend Kiwi to anyone who needs a trustworthy and loving dog sitter.

Karinne (Kiwi) is such a wonderful, caring, compassionate, intelligent, and responsible person. We attended school together, and I can attest to her time management skills and dedication to all activities that she is involved in.

Dog-Lover & Nurse: Care is My Motto

Hi! My name is Karinne, but most people call me Kiwi (no, I am not from New Zealand!). I have just graduated from McMaster University with a degree in Nursing and have recently moved back to Ottawa (my hometown) with my boyfriend Honz. We live in Little Italy, just a few minutes from Dow's Lake, the Rideau Canal walking paths, and several parks. I love being outside and being active, so your pet will get ...

What Karinne would like to know about your dog

I don't have any preferences for breeds or age of dogs. Before our scheduled walk, boarding, or home visit, I will ask to have a Meet & Greet. This meeting will help me see if your dog will be comfortable in my home - this ensures your dog's safety and determines whether I am able to provide them with the best possible care. I will ask you about your dog's feeding schedule, medications, allergies/sensitivities, habits, what commands they obey, reward/disciplinary routines, whether they are house-trained, and anything else you think I should know.

When Karinne watches your pet

There are plenty of walking paths and dog-friendly parks just minutes from my doorstep:
- Dow's Lake
- Dominion Arboretum
- Rideau Canal
- Brewer Park
- The Experimental Farm.

I love being outside and my flexible schedule means that your dog will get as much exercise as they want! I have balls and frisbees for your dog to play with, but if your pup has a favourite outdoor toy please let me know.
