We have been using the services of Dog Gone Walking for almost three years now and we couldn’t be more pleased and happy. Ginger and Maizie are our senior yellow labs. When we are away for an extended period, we require someone to come to feed and/or walk them so that we can enjoy our activity without worrying about them being hungry, uncomfortable or lonely. From the beginning we were able to arrange this easily and sometimes on short notice. Some visits are on weekdays, some on weekends and they could be anytime from early morning to 8 PM. We have dogs and our son and daughter have cats and rabbits in their respective homes. Dog Gone Walking has provided the same reliable, consistent and loving care to them all. The service is extraordinary and so are the people who provide it. The care our precious pets receive is reliable and expert, and the people who provide that care are knowledgeable, loving and caring. What a wonderful service!

With our busy and ever changing schedules, we’ve found the services provided by Mandy and Dog Gone Walking to be flexible and dependable. We feel better knowing that Mable is at home when we are away, instead of in a kennel with limited space. The in home visits provided, give her everything she needs, and plenty of walking around her favourite spots!

I would like to thank you for the care you gave Lynx and Bailey while we were away. Eryn came in to do the assessment and was very professional, informative and personable. We both felt comfortable and at ease knowing that Lynx and Bailey were in capable and caring hands. It was a great experience using your company and we would both highly recommend your services.

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.

With our busy and ever changing schedules, we’ve found the services provided by Mandy and Dog Gone I can now go to work and not worry about my dog being alone. Ellie Mae (our two-year old Shih Tzu) looks forward to visits by Mandy. When I get home from work Ellie Mae runs to the note Mandy has left for that day and makes sure I follow her to read about her walk that day. Mandy is very flexible and works with my schedule which is always changing!

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!

We feel good knowing that despite our busy schedules, Taffy will be well looked after by Dog Gone Walking. Mandy brings her love of animals to the job along with a high degree of professionalism and reliability – not to mention those special touches such as holiday treats! Most important of all, Taffy loves to see Mandy come to play, often accompanied by Murphy or Jet.

Dog Gone Walking is a reliable and responsible care provider for our dogs. Knowing that Missy and George’s needs are met in a caring and compassionate manner provides peace of mind for us. Missy and George say, ‘two paws up!’
As our two cats, Simon and Reilly, are truly members of our family, it was very important that we find trustworthy sitters for them when we needed to travel. We have found this peace of mind with Dog Gone Walking and Cat Care. When we return home, both cats are happy, well adjusted, and terribly spoiled! Eryn and Lisa are our regular sitters, kind and conscientious and willing to send us the occasional e-mail to let us know how things are going back home. We give our unreserved recommendation.

Walking’s services for years, sometimes at very short notice. It is such a relief to have reliable coverage for our cat’s twice-daily insulin shots, carried out by people who love animals. (And our non-diabetic cat is always happy to see a friendly face when we’re gone.)
Bridget Hinnegan, Stay-at-home Parent
I live alone and work full-time, without Dog Gone VVaIking I wouldn’t be able to have my dog ‘Scooter’. Not only does Mandy make sure he is well exercised and entertained, she also makes certain I am aware of any shots or extra vaccines that are required throughout the year. Thanks for all your help and loving care of my dog!
