About Martin

My name is Marty (Martin en français) and I’m 39 years old. I’m bilingual and speak English and French perfectly. I’ve lived in beautiful Montreal for over 20 years now and I absolutely love this city. I live in Little Burgundy near Griffintown and I’m looking for animals within the area. I enjoy running and therefore would love to take your dog on long walks or runs along the Lachine Canal (up to a 15 km run if desired)

My neighbourhood is between Notre Dame and the Lachine canal near the Atwater market. It’s a very nice place and there are lots of parks and dogs walking around all the time. I love ALL animals very much, and that’s why I’ve been vegan for over 3 years. I’ve had 3 dogs and 3 cats since I was 6 years old. I don’t currently have a pet because my last cat, Simba, passed away in June 2019. At this point, I need time to think about getting another pet. I’d love to have a dog but I’m currently enjoying the freedom of not having to take care of any pets at the moment.

The thing that motivates me as a pet sitter is the opportunity to help someone out, while also spending time with friendly pets. Dogs are a man’s best friend and they bring joy, so why not do this for a little cash and help someone out. I’m perfectly bilingual in French and English. I found out about this through a friend who has been doing it part time. I thought it would be the perfect opportunity for me to be able to give and get some pet love. I loved all my pets very much and they were all very important to me. I can assure you that your pets will be treated very well. I know a lot about animals because I’ve had so many throughout my life. I know from experience how important pets are to families and I will take very good care of your pets. I‘m available to sit for small to big size dogs or cats in your home. I am very caring and reliable.

I am offering:

- Playtime

- Pet massage

- Basic grooming (brushing, nail clipping)

- Dog walking and visits for 30-60 minutes

- Giving oral medicine if needed

- Cleaning the kitty litter box.

- Feeding and refreshing the water bowls.

- Morning, afternoon, evening or night visits available

Dog Boarding:

I’m now working remotely from home. That means that I can offer dog boarding. Your dog will be with me all day. I will take them for 20 minutes walks every 4 hours. My home is a 2 bedroom condo of about 800 square feet. I don’t have a backyard. I live with my partner and we’ve been together for 9 years. She works on weekdays away from home and comes back in the evening. I can have a maximum of 2 dogs from the same owner. I would prefer if you could provide a small portable dog bed for your dogs to nap on.

I’m very grateful for this opportunity and I look forward to hearing from you soon. Thanks so much for visiting my profile.

Keep smiling,

Marty

P.S - My favorite dog breads include: Border Collie, Boston Terrier, Australian Shepard, Labrador, and Golden Retriever. I also like all types of cats and I don’t know as much in terms of breeds. My dad had an abyssinian cat growing up and she was very beautiful.

Martin was a wonderful sitter who proved flexible and resourceful (when I booked the wrong dates), as well as caring and conscientious while taking care of our cats.
