About Vanessa

Since as far back as I can remember I’ve always had a passion for animals. I followed my passion and became a certified Veterinary Assistant currently training as a Veterinary Technician! I have a strong background in the veterinary field so you can rest assured that your fur baby is in trustworthy, reliable and capable hands! I work at an animal hospital here in Ajax (Monday-Friday 8am-4pm) and am comfortable looking after dogs of all breeds and ages as well as your feline friends too! I’m comfortable administering medication and I also offer nail trims for both cats and dogs! I’d love to arrange for a meet and greet so your furry friend can become acquainted with me prior to any sitting/walking.

For Home-Sitting please let me know where the leash, harness (if required), doggy bags, food, litter, treats and toys are! If your pet has allergies or food restrictions please let me know. Is your dog nervous around strangers or other dogs? Does he/she have a specific route for walks they love or a specific potty routine? Are there specific commands (verbal or physical) that they respond well too? Is there a sweet spot that they just love getting scratched or rubbed? These are all helpful bits of information to ensure they stay as comfy and happy as possible while you’re away! Each pet I care for will be treated as if they were my own and their safety, comfort and happiness is my main priority!

Length of walks for each dog will be individually suited to your pets comfort levels depending on what they require and are capable of. Typically between 20-40 minutes per walk. Rest assured that your pet's paws will be nice and clean before they come back inside!

Drop in visits and walks are tailored to your pets needs! Available anytime on weekends and before 8am and after 4pm weekdays. Other arrangements can be made if required!

I look forward to meeting you and your fur baby - I assure you your furry best friend will become my best friend too! Ps. I’d also be more than happy to care for your pocket pets, reptiles, birds, fish - basically any pets that may need my attention! Plants as well!
