About Ben

Hello parents of furries,

I'm a former doggo owner of a Shitzu and a Maltipoo, and a white/grey kitty. It's been some time ago since I lived with a furry friend.

Since I moved to the city - a typical condo, I know it isn't fair to adopt a furry baby at the moment. Needless to say, I miss furry, fluffy friends dearly and have been looking for ways to connect with them. I thought about volunteering at humane societies but finding a set schedule instead of flexible hours proved to be challenging. At last, I found out about Pawshake, where I get to help you (and you get to help me)!

I work in health care full time and also a part-time student for a PhD program. My research is about helping seniors manage health. I am a compassionate person and offer affectionate and playful care for your fluffers.

I am also a photo-hobbyist and used to shoot engagement and baby photos semi-professionally. I remember an engagement photo shoot session with 3 dogs in Markham - exciting, fun, and crazy day - imagine lining up 3 dogs, make them look at the camera, and while their parents have their best smile on. The days of my photography had long passed since I became a part-time student and my photographic skills may be rusty but I do exercise them using my (i)phone. I like to take goofy and lovely photos and videos of your babies and would be happy to share with them.

I would love to take your fluffy friend out for a minimum of 30 minutes walk at parks nearby or tell me where I need to go. I normally go to the Newtonbrook Park, G Ross Park, Maxome Park, and Blue Ridge Park.

For home visits, it will be at least 30 minutes and I'd be happy to feed, replenish water, clean the litter, and brush your furry companion. I welcome specific needs and please share them beforehand, which is always helpful for everyone.

My availabilities are normally between 5pm to 9pm on weekdays and flexible on weekends.

For all first-timers, I would like 5 - 10 minutes of time together, for a meet and greet, to get to know your beloved friend.

Such a nice accommodating guy! Our cats really warmed up to Ben, even our shy guy who doesn’t like many people! Would recommend Ben to look after your fur babies while you’re away.

Ben was a life saver! We were able to book him pretty last minute as well and he was very accommodating to our weird scheduling. We are glad to have our fur babies in his hands!
