About Kyle

Hi! Thanks for checking in!

I'm Kyle and new to Pawshake. One of my good friends has been doing it for a while and recommended I join! I would love to be a solution to your pet-care needs :)

First a little about my services before getting into the personal details!

Services include:

  • Home Visits (cat & dog, can be multiple or intermixed!). 30-45 minutes is my normal planned stay, however I can certainly be flexible if you have an alternate request. As I'm fairly centrally located (Centretown), I'm within range of many localities. In visiting your pets, I will gladly take care of feeding, play, human interaction, medicinal or 'beauty' needs (e.g. brushing, coat care) and take care of any cleaning-up (inside & outside) required.
Lastly, I should mention my primary transportation is bike or bus - thus I simply ask to please consider this when booking with me! Of course, I will always try to make my services available throughout the city of Ottawa!

Now that "that" is out of the way, you should know a little bit about me!

I'm still fairly new to the Ottawa area (about 4 years now) after living my whole life back in Vancouver BC. I originally moved to Ottawa with my "then" girlfriend, now "wife" as we both started graduate school at uOttawa. I studied psychology and she is currently working on her PhD in molecular sciences at the university. Currently I coach psychology to athletes of various ages. We live between Little Italy and the Glebe so are very close to many locations! At the moment, we have two cats, our "girls", Felicity and Reya. Reya is a maine coon with a ton of personality, and "baby" Felicity is a shy and timid sweetheart. They couldn't be further apart personality wise. Reya loves everyone, but Felicity will hide from anyone except myself, she loves her daddy!

Despite just the two girls today, growing up, we've always had cats and dogs (generally at least 2 of each!). I've had big dogs (rotty's, shepards, labs) and small ones (shih tzus, terriers) and consider myself more than comfortable with any kind of pup! Additionally, we've been involved with foster cats and raising litters for the SPCA and other organizations over the past. My wife also worked at a cat shelter for a few years during her undergrad so we're both very experienced with cat care of a wide variety (e.g. administering medicine, pills, topical etc.).

In the end, we love animals of all kinds and I'd love to be a solution to your pet-sitting needs! Expect someone who's willing to give your pets attention, care, playfulness, and ultimately be reliable and in contact with you while you're away!

Talk soon!

Warmly,

Kyle

Kyle was so friendly and took excellent care of our two cats while we were away. He was accessible and sent thorough updates with photos daily. He went above and beyond to care for them, including tidying messes they had made. We very much trust in and appreciate his care!
