About Carrie

Hello! My name is Carrie and I'm a 40-something professional taking a much-needed break from the corporate world at the moment.

I'm a huge animal lover and grew up with both cats and dogs of many different breeds and sizes throughout my life (including 5 Chows and 3 Himalayans at the same time!), and love both species equally. I have cat/dog sat (including boarding and housesitting) for several friends and currently have the time to open this up to new clients.

I live in High Park, with access to a fenced-in dog run outside of my building, as well as High Park itself just across the street, for the doggos. I am also happy to simply take them for walks through the neighbourhood, if that's preferred.

For the cats, I have some big window ledges for them to bird watch, and have a good selection of YouTube-for-cats videos queued up that have been tried and tested. I've been called a cat (and duck!) whisperer, with the ability to coax even the shyest kitty out from hiding, while also respecting their boundaries.

I love giving (all) animals lots of attention--and truthfully would rather be rolling around on the ground with them than talking to humans sometimes! I will also take a million photos of your fur baby to send to you (seriously, I have over 2000 animal photos on my phone, currently).

For dog walking/sitting/boarding, my preference would be to have a meet & greet before committing to make sure we are the right fit for each other and that your dog is comfortable.

Please reach out if you have any questions! Thanks for reading. 😄

Carrie was the best choice for my dog. For five days she took excellent care of her, communicated daily with photos and left no doubt that Bluebelle was in good hands. I will book again.
