Dog Care

“Dog Gone Walking & Cat Care is more than simply a pet service, it’s TLC with snuggles, smiles, notes, and treats. After 14 years, the people of DGW are part of our family, and my 2 Boston Terriers feel the same way (and respond with lots of wiggles, kisses, and excitement). Life is definitely better with a dog (or two) and having DGW is like a smudge of peanut butter on top of a venison liver treat – extra awesomeness”

– Dr. Kimberly Baltzer-Jaray, Lecturer at King’s University College

Daily Dog Walks

We offer Daily Dog Walks on local neighbourhood trails and community park visits which include feedings, refreshments and treats.  This can take the form of a brisk on-leash walk or fun off-leash activity such as fetching a tennis ball.  If your pet enjoys the company of other dogs, we can arrange for group-walks or on occasion, a supervised play session with other friendly dogs in your area.  *Private visits are also available, contact us for detail.

In-Home Visits

Perfect for the client who has a busy lifestyle or vacation plans looking to spoil their furry friend, these packages include daily walks, feedings, healthy treats, refreshments and a variety of adventurous walks and of course lots of attention!  These visits can be private one-on-one time or socialization and interaction can be arranged with other dogs with similar characteristics.

Available Packages: 2 In-Home Visits a day or 3-4 In-Home Visits, seven days a week!

Operation and Recovery Visits

With special care requirements, we understand that these pets need a little extra care to improve their recovery.  We are also able to administer medications and pills for healing and diabetic animals.

Elderly Pet Care and Medicine Administering Visits

We offer special care for pets requiring medication, pilling or insulin.  Our hours of operation from 8am – 9pm enable us to administer insulin at the required 12-hour interval.  We also offer additional assistance for our ‘pet retirees’ as we understand they need a little more care and assistance.

“Dog Gone Walking and Cat Care has been walking our two doggies for over 5 years now, and have always provided the most caring, complete and regular service. Our dogs love each of the walkers. And we have come to consider Mandy and her wonderful team as an important support. DGW has always been extremely good when we’ve had to contact them for something that’s come up suddenly, requiring someone to come by. My wife and I, and our two doggies, recommend Dog Gone Walking and Cat Care most enthusiastically!”
