Note: I am located in the Little Italy area of Toronto (near College and Grace), and either walk or take public transit to and from my bookings.
Unfortunately, I do not drive, so am unable to travel long distances.
Please keep this in mind when booking.
My name is Victoria and I would love to get to know your pet, either through dog walking or home visits (cats, dogs, hamsters etc.).
I am obviously a huge animal lover and I am patient and kind when it comes to my interactions with all species.
I am aware that all pets have different personalities and so different needs, and I will do my best to cater to these.
For the last 4 years, I have either volunteered with or worked with
I am lucky enough to have worked alongside trainers and so am aware of different training techniques.
I am a huge advocate for positive reinforcement training.
I have volunteered as a dog walker with shelter dogs and adopted my own beautiful dog from a shelter at the age of 10(+).
When she first came home with me, she was very fearful and quite reactive towards bikes and dogs.
With my knowledge of behaviour and training, I worked with her and she has improved greatly.
Once we were forced to confine our walks to alleys but now she can enjoy leisurely walks in the park.
I also have quite a bit of experience with cats and am often called to cat sit for friends.
Again, I find taking the time to get to know their personality is key - some love to play, while others enjoy affection and some like both.
I look forward to hearing from you and getting to know your wonderful furry family member.
If you have any questions please just ask!
Our cat was much happier than usual when we retuned home! Thanks Victoria!
We asked Victoria to visit our two cats on multiple occasions while we were on vacation. She was incredible. She played with them and really got to know each of them during her hour-long visits. She send timely updates and tons of pictures. It was easy to see from the photos that they were having the best time with Victoria and it really set us at ease. All was well when we returned to the cats and our home - the cats were happy and super affectionate and not at all angry at us for leaving them. It’s clear how much Victoria adores animals, and we’d have her visit our boys again any time.
