About Kody

Hello,

My name is Kody. I am 21 years old and live in central Northwest Calgary. I am offering services to the following areas only (some exceptions) as transit is my main source of transportation.

In home visits and dog walking are available for Huntington Hills, Thorncliffe, Beddington, Sandstone, Coventry Hills, Panorama, Crescent Heights, Downtown, Sunnyside, Kensington, East Village.

I do offer overnight stays citywide as well as in home boarding for cats, small animals, and birds.

Now a bit more on myself. I have had a passion for animals of all kinds as long as I can remember. I spent most of my youth around dogs of all breeds and have had experience raising puppies as well. In my later years, I’ve become much more devoted to feline companions and have spent the last several months volunteering with MEOW Foundation if you have heard of Calgary’s primary regal cat cafe you likely know they are partners with MEOW foundation for adoptions. Working with cats is something I’d consider to be a passion of mine, however, I am devoted to providing the best care for any animal in my care as if they were my own.

I have owned three dogs of my own and four cats. Currently, I have two dogs and three cats as well as a bearded dragon. I have also worked for a pet shop, caring for a wide variety of other pets including bunnies, ferrets, mice, exotic birds, reptiles, fish, spiders and scorpions. All of which I am more than comfortable looking after if you have the need for it. I am also able to teach basic obedience for dogs and cats. And I am capable of administering oral medication and injections if needed.

I would also be happy to arrange cat boarding stays upon request. (Cats must be up to date on vaccinations and spayed/neutered.)

Kitties will receive their own room and will be provided with fresh water and food through the day as needed and will receive one on one interaction for one hour minimum per day. (Serious inquires only for home boarding please.)

Dog walks start at a minimum of 30 minutes to one hour but can go longer upon request at no extra cost.

During in home visits (30-90 mins) and overnight stays I will provide food and water as needed, exercise and outdoor time for dogs (and cats per request). I will also ensure small tasks are completed such as bringing in mail, taking out trash, and light dusting or sweeping. I would be happy to provide other housework upon request.

I will also provide daily photos and updates as per request so you know your companions are doing well!

WHAT’S NEW: I would like to let new and previous clients know, starting now for every in home overnight stay, and for every home boarding booking I will be donating $10-$15 to my fundraiser Zephyr’s Angels Foundation to go towards FIP (Feline Infectious Peritonitis) research. FIP sadly took the life of my wonderful kitten Zephyr back in February and I have been working hard to create a foundation to honor his memory and to give future kittens and cats a chance to fight and survive against FIP.

We love Kody! He was so caring and generous with our two cats, including one who has fairly high needs. We highly recommend Kody and will happily book him again.

We booked Kody to watch our two cats for a weekend. Can't say enough how awesome it was to work with him. He was responsive, professional and obviously cares a tremendous amount about our animals! We loved the updates and pictures. Definitely will continue to work with Kody in the future.
