As much as I like waking dogs, I love boarding them even more. I've always been really 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 great seeing my regulars wagging their tails while pulling their owners to my front door.
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
The ideal guest will have good recall skills and be friendly with other dogs. Please bring your own 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 too!
We were looking for an in-home boarder for our GSP during our move from overseas back to Canada. We needed to send him home before us and finding Al on Pawshake was a blessing. He made us feel at ease with his willingness to make sure Juno was well received and adapted well after a long flight and in a strange environment. We received regular updates with photos and it was clear Juno not only felt at ease, but thrived with Al and the other dogs in the small pack. We have now found our go-to dog sitter/walker/boarder in Ottawa. Thanks Al!
Alan took great care of our dog, Morty, while we were out of town. He came back to us happy and exhausted - a sign of a great weekend! Alan is very professional, clearly loves and is knowledgeable about dogs, and is prompt with messages. We are looking forward to Morty’s next trip to see Alan!
I've been a self employed dog walker since 1999, and I've picked up a few tricks here and there. I’ve dealt with all sorts of things, so if your dog has any special needs, please let me know and I’ll see what I can do.
