Note: I am located in the Little Italy area of Toronto (near College and Grace), and either walk or take public transit to and from my bookings.
Unfortunately, I do not drive, so am unable to travel long distances.
Please keep this in mind when booking.
My name is Victoria and I would love to get to know your pet, either through dog walking or home visits (cats, dogs, hamsters etc.).
I am obviously a huge animal lover and I am patient and kind when it comes to my interactions with all species.
I am aware that all pets have different personalities and so different needs, and I will do my best to cater to these.
For the last 4 years, I have either volunteered with or worked with
I am lucky enough to have worked alongside trainers and so am aware of different training techniques.
I am a huge advocate for positive reinforcement training.
I have volunteered as a dog walker with shelter dogs and adopted my own beautiful dog from a shelter at the age of 10(+).
When she first came home with me, she was very fearful and quite reactive towards bikes and dogs.
With my knowledge of behaviour and training, I worked with her and she has improved greatly.
Once we were forced to confine our walks to alleys but now she can enjoy leisurely walks in the park.
I also have quite a bit of experience with cats and am often called to cat sit for friends.
Again, I find taking the time to get to know their personality is key - some love to play, while others enjoy affection and some like both.
I look forward to hearing from you and getting to know your wonderful furry family member.
If you have any questions please just ask!
Finally was able to have Victoria cat sit again and she was amazing as usual. She brings her own treats and toys, is very careful with out tricky cat, and ensured we were comfortable with her safety measures (because of the pandemic). One of our cats was a bit sick and she followed up to ensure he was okay. She's the best!
Victoria was fabulous..very conscientious, great detailed reports an lots of pics..our kitties were very happy as are we!
