I love walking dogs! I will take your dog for long or short walks, whatever the dog needs. Our house is too small to have a dog (we already have two cats) so this is the best way for me to indulge my love of dog walking. Over the years I've walked best friend's dogs, cousin's dogs, boyfriend's dogs, mother in law's dogs, and have been known to even stop and play with stranger's dogs when they let me. I'm a personal trainer, so I love to keep active by walking and I enjoy the company of an animal with me.
I am available during weekdays for dog walking. My walks are between 15 and 30 minutes, depending on the dog's needs, the weather, and the owner's request. I charge $15 for each walk for 30 minutes.
I love cats as well, which is why I have two of them. I've had a cat (or two) since birth, and I've had experience taking care of other people's cats too. I routinely stop and play with cats on the street when I see them, sometimes for up to half an hour if I have nothing better to do! My cat visits are for 20 minutes and cost $15 per visit. I will feed and water the cat, scoop the kitty litter (cats hate dirty litter!), and give your cat some one on one time while you're away. Whether I play with toys with the cat for a little while, cuddle, or just read out loud so the cat can have the comfort of having a human in the house for a time (I can read out loud to let them know I'm there) is decided by the owner's request and the mood of the cat on each visit.
Despite not having dogs myself, one of my guilty pleasures is watching dog training shows on youtube! It's Me Or The Dog is my favorite, as the training methods are all very gentle and work with the dog's nature rather than against it. When I'm not playing with my cats, you can find me in my studio drawing or painting, reading in the sun, or hiking in Gatineau Park. Sometimes my 8-year-old daughter and I visit the animal shelter to walk the dogs together when there is a dog available for walking.
