About Ingrid

I am a passionate entrepreneur, an outdoor enthusiast, upbeat woman who lives mindfully and adores animals. I have been looking after animals for more than 10 years, simultaneously in France (where I am originally from), Canada, USA, Costa Rica and Australia.

I travel often so having a dog or a cat of my own is not feasible at this time. Looking after your pet is the perfect opportunity for me to bring my passion for animals while bringing you a peace of mind when you have to be away from your furry companion.

I grew up with a dog and a cat. Animals have always been an essential part of my life. They uplift my spirit in incredible ways, help

me to unwind from the day and bring so much happiness into my life.

I enjoy a healthy, active, vegetarian lifestyle and I find that having a dog to accompany me on walks, at the beach and on trails adds a great amount of joy in my life. I also love being at home surrounded by a cat and/or a dog and snuggle while listening to music or working on my laptop.

A few years ago, when I was living in Paris, I volunteered for an animals rescue association, the ''Fondation Assistance Aux Animaux'', a registered society run by volunteers which primary focus is to rescue and rehome small animals in need, animals who have been neglected, injured and abandoned. I was providing special care to dogs who were the most in needs, some of them were very ill and I was in charge of giving them specific medication. Most importantly, I was providing them with as much love and attention as possible. This experience provided me a great sense of fulfillment and a sense of purpose, and a stronger connection with animals.

Some of my previous assignments were filled with a lot of responsibilities. For example, last year I took care of a furry family of 8 (4 dogs and 4 cats), all rescued animals. My days were bustling with activities as each animal required specific attention - most of them needed special medication and 2 cats were very old and couldn't walk properly. It remains a formidable experience.

I am know for being kind, patient, trustworthy, resourceful and caring person. I will provide your pet with the attention and love equally as if they were mine.

I offer dog walking, housesitting, home visits and housesitting services. I am available for short and long period assignments.

If you need additional reference or if you have any question or concern please do not hesitate.

I look forward to meeting you and your fur family !

House Sitting

We had a wonderful experience leaving our two dogs with Ingrid for the week. She took great care of them, sent us daily updates and photos and was able to water our garden and flowers while we were away. Ingrid is very warm, friendly and a great communicator. We felt very comfortable having her stay in our home and we would definitely work with her again.

Ingrid was a fantastic sitter! She went above all expectations and our dog Kermode was in a much happier state after we returned. Highly recommended!!!
