About Alan

As much as I like waking dogs, I love boarding them even more. I've always been good with dogs, and I've only gotten better with them since starting one of the first dog

walking services in Ottawa. It's always fun meeting and getting to know new pups, but it's also great seeing my regular guests' wagging their tails when they come back for another vacation.

Dogs who stay with me get to go on long car rides and super fun off-leash walks in big parks. I believe that a tired dog is a happy dog...and they're easier to look after too :) I've got many dog beds scattered about for post-walk

naps. As dog walking is my day job, pups are rarely left alone, as I take my guests with me. We're out of the house for 5 hours or so in the afternoon on weekdays and about two hours on weekends.

I live in a house with a fenced back yard surrounded by many nice walking paths that are good for relaxed leash walks.

The ideal guest will have good recall skills and be friendly with other dogs. Please bring your crate if your dog needs one, an item from your home if it is their first stay so they'll have a familiar scent, and their own food so that no one's tummy gets upset.

I can certainly provide references if you'd like.

Thank you for considering my services, and I'm sure your dog will thank you!

Alan looked after Finn for 4 days. It was the first time I had to leave him with someone. The entire experience was conducted in a courteous and professional way. Moreover, when both Alan and Pawshake needed to respond to a situation, they did so by making Finn’s care a top priority. Top marks to both of you. An end-to-end example of a positive customer experience. I would highly recommend Alan to anyone that needs dog care and peace of mind. John.

Alan was a great choice to look after our dog, Zoey. She loves long walks and, thanks to Alan, we even learned something new about her. Turns out she enjoys cooling off in the water on hot summer days. We always thought she hated water, but now we know it's just baths she hates! Alan was also excellent about sending us daily updates, complete with photos of Zoey on her outings. Seeing how much fun she was having every day put all of us at ease and allowed us to enjoy our time away even more because we knew she was in good hands. Prompt communication, flexible, and easy to work with. Everything went very smoothly. Thanks Alan!
