About Emily

Hello!

I have been caring for animals for as long as I can remember. When I was about 7 years old my Mom brought home a kitten for me, to which I responded: “I will never be lonely again!”. That cat was a handful, some may say insane, but I loved him anyway and endured his craziness because sometimes, just once in a while, he’d be the sweetest cat again and I’d see that spark. Now, 24 years later, I still love even the crazy animals and I work with both cats and dogs with behaviour issues.

I have a lot of experience with cats and dogs. I also have some experience with horses, chickens, rabbits, and fish. I have been doing this “professionally” for about 8 years now. I am a small business with a big heart and a lot of very loyal clients. I have wonderful references and most of my business has been gained via word of mouth over the last 8 years.

I do “in your house sitting”, meaning I basically move into your home and maintain your pets routine as close as possible. I also take care of your mail and plants if needed. I am neat, quiet, and do not smoke. I always keep the client home clean. I have a 2 night minimum for most situations. You can message me about your particular needs and we can discuss.

I make a point of keeping all my clients in the loop with their pets life while they are away. You’ll get regular texts and photos from me, and you can see the best pictures of my time with your pet online.

I have recently added “dog walking” to my list of services on Pawshake. This is above and beyond a normal drop in visit. This is NOT an additional cost when I am pet sitting overnight but instead is a service for people with busy lives who just need their fur baby walked more regularly. I have a flexible schedule so message me to discuss dates and times.

I am happy to chat with you about your pet or house sitting needs. * Please note Pawshake does not yet have the function to add additional pets when booking overnight sits. If booking for multiple pets please factor in $10 for each additional pet per night. * Thanks for taking the time, looking forward to speaking with you.

House Sitting

I cannot speak highly enough of this absolutely delightful sitter. She stayed at my home with my little dog and took such good care of her, even shovelling her little snow-track in the back yard so she could play. We had daily updates and pictures and our dog was so healthy and happy when we returned. I would recommend Emily 100%. We are so fotunate to have found her for our dog!

We have several pets that have diverse medical needs and Emily was able to handle all of it. When we came back from our trip our animals were happy to see us and seemed like we had just been away for a single day. The house was in great condition as well. We're very happy with Emily's services.
