About Tara

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! :)
