I’m surprised that Jake wanted to come home with us! After seeing the photos and video, he was having a good time and sure enjoyed himself. He was definitely taken care of! Merric and her husband did a fantastic job and I would recommend them! We will be back for sure!

Merric has looked after my dog 2 times prior, and gives him lots of treats, love, and exercise... everything he could possibly want. I will definitely call Merric before considering anyone else

Exclusive Dog Boarding

Hello fellow dog parents,

My name is Merric and caring for animals is my life's passion. While I'm new to Rover, I have plenty of professional experience and education in caring for dogs, and I'm happy to open my home to care for your loved one(s).

I spent 5 years working as a Canine Attendant at a cage-free dog daycare/boarding kennel. There, I took care of 10 to 25 dogs at a time ...

What Merric would like to know about your dog

Is your dog house trained? If not, please let me know and I will continue their education while they stay with me.

Does your dog have any physical limitations (eg. difficulty with stairs)?

Does your dog have any allergies outside of the known toxic items (grapes, chocolate, etc)?

Could your dog be nervous in a new environment? If so, I offer a complimentary meet and greet in my home to gauge your dog's comfort with in home care.

Please provide me with feeding and medication instructions, and anything else I should know to keep your dog happy and healthy.

An overnight boarding period lasts 24 hours from the time of pet drop-off. Owner is subject to a late pickup fee of $7/hr should pick-up occur outside of the boarding period.

When Merric watches your pet

I know the importance of daily exercise, so when your pet boards with me they will get a minimum of one, 30 minute walk a day. Weather we hike through Scout Valley, stroll the waterfront at Tudhope or Couchiching Park, or just explore a new neighbourhood, your dog will have a fun adventure every day.

You can rest assured that when you leave your beloved pet with me that he/she will enjoy all the same comforts as they would have enjoyed if they had stayed home. I never leave dogs unattended. If for whatever reason I need to leave home, my husband will be here to supervise.

I'm fully licensed, insured, and bonded. My husband and I are both trained and certified in Pet First Aid by Walks ‘N’ Wags.
