About Colin

My origin story begins with family pets. We always had dogs and cats around the house. I’ve always loved dogs immensely and seemed to understand them better than most people. In my teens & 20’s I volunteered at the SPCA, walking dogs and helping train puppies. I have experience with dogs of all sizes, ages and temperaments. Currently I spoil my sisters labs as much as possible with trips to the park in winter and swimming in the river in summer!

My flexible schedule allows me time to do what I love most, hanging out with dogs and cats! I’m available 7 days a week, and can visit day or night. Think of me as the cool uncle that swoops in and spoils your kids with a fun adventure and treats! Dogs are furry little aliens that we really don’t deserve but life sure is better when they’re around. Each one has their own unique personality and idiosyncrasies that make them so special and enjoyable to spend time with. I’m at my best and most happy when I’m in the company of our canine friends.

I’ve found that our furry little friends are much more comfortable and happier in their own environment, therefore I do not board dogs at my home. Most of my clients are pop-in visits once or even twice a day, depending on feeding schedule. Each visit includes food, fresh water, walk/play time and of course bathroom breaks. Visit time is about 30-45min.

I also offer live-in care (stay at your house) for clients with separation anxiety issues.

My level of adventure depends on the dog I’m looking after. High energy? We’ll head to the park and play fetch. Low energy? A quick tour of the neighbourhood then home for nap or cuddles. Our time together will depend upon your dogs level of comfort and activity.

Let me know if your pet has any allergies, strange behaviour (ie: separation anxiety) or phobias. The more I know about your pet the better I will be at making our time together comfortable and fun!

Colin is everything we could ask for in a house/pet sitter. He provided regular updates on our animals and made sure they were well taken care of. It a huge weight off the shoulders know our animals are happy and safe. We’ll be return clients for sure.

Jared, 2024-03-06

Colin was at our place for 10 days and everything was absolutely flawless. Communication was fantastic and we got daily pictures of our golden and it didn’t take long before we knew our girl had completely forgotten about us and was living a better life. The house was spotless on our return. Overall, would get Colin back without a second thought.
