About Patrick

My partner and I both love, and grew up with dogs! We have been volunteering with Toronto Humane Society as foster parents for the past 2 years and have had a blast.

We have fostered a total of 6 rescue dogs (not all at once!) and understand that each one has their own quirks!

Our condo is on the ground floor with direct access off the street which makes it easy for us to get in and out for walks as often as needed. Our condo/living space is pet friendly and can be further 'puppy proofed' if needed. We both love being outside and are happy to exercise your dog as much as you suggest. We welcome any special requests or instructions for your pet and understand that leaving your dog can be stressful so we are happy to provide lots of pictures and updates for you.

Some basics you and your pet can expect:

  • At least 3 long walks (let me know if they need more or less outside time)

  • Constant supervision (your pet will not be left alone or locked in another room.. Ever!)
  • As much rubs and scratches as they can handle
  • We would love to get to know your pooch and would be happy to accommodate their unique quirks! Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions.

    Pat and Lynsey were exceptional with our pup Lola. This was our first time traveling since getting Lola and our first experience with Pawshake so we were a little nervous to leave Lola for four days. During Lola’s stay, Pat sent us numerous updates and photos. Lola was kept busy and happy with many walks and play time sessions and was having a mini-vacation of her own. She was also never left alone — which was extremely important to us because Lola can get separation anxiety. My partner and I joked throughout our trip that Lola would be sad to see us because it meant that she would have to leave Pat and Lynsey’s home. I have no doubt that Pat and Lynsey love dogs and were genuinely excited to spend time with Lola for a few days. We are thrilled to have found such attentive sitters we would have no problem trusting again and again to care for Lola.

    Patrick was just awesome! He was super clear about what to expect from his care to our dogs and he delivered fully. He was very loving to our dogs and they came home in such a great mood. We'd love to have him take care of them again.
