Dogs, just like you and I, each have their own unique needs, personality, and abilities, which often means that the type of care and companionship they need is not a one size fits all. My goal, therefore in working with dogs is not only to promote their health, happiness, and wellbeing, but to recognize and respect their own individual character!
I also tend to work with, although am never limited to, connecting with dogs that do experience some anxiety, reactivity, are socially shy/timid, or just prefer more independent environments from pack walks. Whatever their personal character, I love and advocate for all dogs :)
☆Please note for dog services below, I always organize a 25 min, in-home Meet & Greet with yourself and your bud to complete their personalized pet profile, answer any questions you may have, and receive directions for any keys or lockbox passwords.☆

Some small bits about myself: favourite past time of many is to people watch but I much prefer to pooch watch when I'm out and about! Have two little bubs at home - Dave and Cheryl - a brother and sister cat duo who we had rescued and were adamant about adopting before they could potentially be separated forever!
I began dog walking after I was approached to help two dog owners with their Standard Poodle, who had unfortunately gone through a string of elite walkers that regarded him as unmanageable due to their own business models. With patience and practice, we've certainly shown them wrong and I look forward to walking this intelligent, amazing guy each day!
I am currently avail. within the following boundaries:
▪︎As far north as Bloor, as far south as Queen▪︎As far west as Roncesvalles, as far east as Bathurst▪︎ but if you are just outside of this area, we can chat and I may be able to adjust accordingly! :)
Tara is amazing. Very accommodating and takes the time to train Ollie too.
