When I was born, my family had a new puppy named Bucky. We grew up together, the two of us exploring the nearby countryside for countless hours. Since then, I have always had dogs in my life. My wife Yvonne and I enjoy sharing our home with new dogs. We offer a loving environment to dogs whose families are away. We will treat your dog just as we do our own, 24/7. We don't have regular jobs. We just hang out with our dogs all day, every day. Our ongoing goal is to take dog boarding to a higher and more personal level. Depending on what they are interested in, we can take our four-legged friends on frequent walks or runs. Shasta, our 12-year-old lab, gets along with everyone. We spend a lot of time around the Arbutus Greenway, Oak Park, Mackie Park and Fraser River Park. We live in a big house with a fenced yard on the Oakridge / Marpole boundary. The dogs have the run of the house and yard. Dogs are welcome on sofas, chairs, and, of course, laps. We are just seven minutes from Vancouver International Airport (YVR) and 25 minutes from Tsawassenn Ferry Terminal.. We are non-smokers. We like to think of our walks as adventures. We always find an off-leash park for lots of fun stick and ball throwing, as well as general romping around and being goofy. Of course, we can always work in a swim for those who are so inclined. You are welcome to visit us before making a decision as to where you will board your dog. If we are considering any other doggie guests at the same time (which we usually are), we will do whatever we can to get everyone together in advance, to let the dogs get to know each other a little in advance.
24/7 care for dogs - experienced dog lovers. Husband and wife team. We had a chow chow from a puppy to a ripe old age of 14.5 years old. I learned alot about training, grooming and brushing for sure! We have a doggy bath tub and some basic grooming tools but we are primarily offering vacation coverage for pet care and boarding. We have references. My husband and myself both have CANINE FIRST AID certification. We can be available on fairly short notice ( 2 day advance booking would be appreciated). Basic grooming is free with stays of 2 weeks or more.

Hi there! My name is Shay, and I'm a 23 year old working professional who has a long distance relationship with her dog Sully back in Ontario. Growing up I have had three dogs, and never did I go one week in my life not having a furry companion. Since I was 18 I moved out here in BC, and sadly could not support my own dog due to my 4on/4off work. Therefore I rely heavily on taking care of other dogs! Not only do I have a personal history with dogs, but I also work with K9 german shepherds in my professional field. I'm an incredibly active individual who lives a very clean and disciplined lifestyle. My place is big, smoke/drug free, and I'm always looking for some company! I would feel incredibly privileged and excited to spend a day or night walking, playing, adventuring, and cuddling (if he/she prefers) with your pup! My place is 1500sq/f and we have our own yard close to multiple parks so it is guaranteed your dog will have an excellent time! Please feel free to message me for any questions and/or concerns.

Hello puppy parents! My name is Kelly! I am an Australian living in Vancouver. I live in a smoke free apartment. We have a very large patio in the building that I take my pup out to a couple of times a day and I have two dog parks a short walk from my home.

Dog owners and animal lovers. We love them all. We have a house and a fenced in yard. First was Mabel; a golden retriever, then Red Dog; a Rhodesian Ridgeback and then Mr. Higgins; a something something rescue. Currently we do not have a dog. We are going to get another dog, but due to upcoming travel plans we are going to wait. We are both runners if your dog needs that sort of exercise. We have two children. My husband works from home so there is usually someone home. We support various dog rescue organizations - SPCA and BAWA. Sorry, but no to aggressive dogs. Dogs must also be house trained.
Your dog's favorite uncle! I now attend UBC studying Neuroscience but am natively from Nassau, Bahamas where I have lived for most of my life until now! I am relatively new to Vancouver and love, love, love animals! Back home I have had dogs, hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits, parrots, parakeets, cockatiels, lovebirds, fish, eels, stingrays, octopi, and probably more pets than you could ever imagine! Caring for animals (and people) is a passion of mine and I absolutely adore them all. I have a 7 year old giant of a standard poodle named Griffin back in the Bahamas and he is the most well-behaved trained cuddle ball you will ever meet! I would love to take your dog for walks, whether it be in the neighborhood, to the beach, on a trail or downtown, treat them, play with them, train them and even bathe them! Big dogs are a PLUS! The bigger the better! I can house sit with your dog on weekends, and babysit if you have young kids! I have great experience with kids being a swimming instructor and childcare provider for years! I am an artist and musician, and for a small fee can also do pet portraits of your little one upon request. I look forward to meeting you and your pup! Cheers, Nick

Our dog, Buster, is a part of the family, we are happy to increase the puppy love in the house and take care of your pooch. Your four legged friend would join Buster on his morning walk that lasts for at least an hour, we like to walk the trails of Pacific Spirit Park or play on the many fields in our neighbourhood. An afternoon walk of about 30 minutes is also part of our routine and usually a little fetch on the field. Your dog is welcome throughout the house, upstairs or downstairs, wherever they find their comfy spot. When the weather is not wet Buster loves to relax on the deck and soak up some of the sunshine or lay on the grass, the deck door is usually wide open so dogs are welcome to move about with ease. Our dog loving family is made up of my husband and myself along with our 11 year old son, 8 year old daughter and 2 year old multigenerational Australia Labradoodle . We understand the need for your pets to be well cared for and loved so that you can enjoy your time away , we offer a comfortable, loving home for your pooch. We take lots of time for cuddles and will brush your pup in the evening if like Buster they require daily grooming. If possible we would love to meet you and your dog prior to dog sitting to be sure our dogs are compatible.
Hello, I work from home as a freelance web designer and am a life-long dog lover. I love all animals but have always had a special connection with dogs in particular. I live with my boyfriend, Daniel, who works full-time as a fitness and boxing instructor (and also loves dogs). We lost our beloved Ruby (a 20lb. Shelty cross) back in August of last year to old age. We miss her dearly and love welcoming the presence of a dog back into our home. We have all her old doggie toys, leash, food bowls etc. for any of our canine guests to use if needed. I will do my very best to make the separation from your pet a little easier for everyone by providing a fun, peaceful and loving place for them to stay. We can keep in contact as much or as little as you'd like and I'm always happy to keep you posted with plenty of videos/photos throughout their stay. I understand how hard it is to be separated from your pet but you can be sure that you're leaving them in good hands. I will keep them as happy and healthy as can be which will include lots of exercise, fresh air, playtime, comfy places to sleep/relax and plenty of tummy scratches too! I make my own schedule for work so I'll be able to give your dog lots of attention. We have many trails and dog parks within walking distance from our home or just a short drive away. Our house is located in a residential part of North Vancouver in the lower Lonsdale area. Local dog friendly walks that we frequent include the Mosquito Creek trails, Victoria Park and the Ambleside beach dog park. Both Dan and I are well practiced at managing all sorts of doggie temperaments and at keeping bad behaviours under control. Our philosophy on relating to and communicating with dogs is based on the "Marker Training" method which focuses on positive reinforcement. If you have any preferences or special needs for the care of your dog please provide me with the necessary instructions and I will see that everything is done accordingly. Dogs are family, and it is my pleasure and privilege to love and care for them. It is a responsibility I do not take lightly. We would love to welcome your dog into our home and family and do our very best to make them feel comfortable and loved while you are away. Looking forward to meeting you!

Hi there, Yanyi & Steven here, proud parents of a 2-year-old corgi named Wiggle. We live in New Westminster and both work in downtown Vancouver, so we can only dog-sit during the weekend or holidays or on our WFH Wednesdays. When the weather is OK, we love going hiking/snowshoeing & long walks with our dog, he has been to almost every dog-friendly mountains & trails in the metro Vancouver area. We like to take tons of photos & videos and sometimes we put together a 1-min video of each adventure to post on Instagram (@corgiwiggle), so if your dog stays with us, we'll sure to send you many photos & videos! There is a big lawn field right in front of our place where we play fetch everyday, and the enclosed dog area in Queen's Park is only 7-min walk away.

We are an energetic, responsible couple with extensive experience with dogs! Masha currently works at an established doggy daycare in the Metro-Vancouver area. We live right across the street from a big fenced-in dog park, and we go there often with our pug and whoever is visiting us at the time. We have taken care of many dogs in many different places over the years, relying on word-of-mouth for new clients, but have just recently found out about this site. We have worked with dogs of all ages and temperaments, as well as senior dogs and high-maintenance dogs requiring round the clock care and/or medication. We specialize in administering medication, eye drops/lube, shots, etc., to doggies. The two of us take turns caring for the doggies, so they will never be left alone for long; you can think of it as a two-people-for-the-price-of-one deal! We put great care and passion into doggy-sitting, treating each visitor as one of our own. Let us welcome your pup into our family, even if it's just for the day, and you will have the peace of mind that comes from knowing your fur-baby is in loving and responsible hands! *** Please note that we may be available during the work week as well as weekends, depending on the dog. Please let us know in advance via message if you need to book Mon-Fri (unless you are a return client, then there's no need to contact us). Thank you!

Hi there! My partner, Rob and I are both animal loving people that wants to have a dog, but aren't ready for the long term commitment just yet. We live in Olympic Village and often go for walks in the evening. I often work from home as a Financial Advisor and I have a very flexible schedule. Between Rob and I, we can make sure one of us are home when we are watching your doggie. We have both always had pets in our life. I used to have a Maltese for 12 years, who passed away 2 years ago. Rob grew up with cats but he watched and took care of his best friends dog for 10 years. Now we have a sweet disabled kitty that gives us cuddles every morning! We will make sure to keep our kitty separate from your dog when we are not home (our kitty will be in our bedroom with the door closed). That being said, we would like to know the nature of your dog as our kitty can be quite skiddish. We are often asked to watch our friends dogs whenever they are out of town. A typical day your dog would have while with us: 8am - morning walk with your dog 9-11am - work from home 12pm - afternoon walk with your dog - go to the dog park that is around the corner 1-7pm - chill at home or work from home 8pm - evening walk Please note that your dog must be house trained!! We love dogs and would take good care of your baby.
Hello there! My name is Rachel, I'm the Operations Manager at GoFetch.ca. Prior to this, I spent almost two years dog walking and sitting for all of my furry clients! Working with dogs, whether it's at the office or out at a park, is my absolute passion! I've grown up with dogs my entire life. My first dog was a labrador-cross and then following that, I had three border collies. I'm used to all types of breeds and sizes. I've cared for small, medium, large and extra large dogs. I have a lot of experience with rescue dogs in particular, and I am very comfortable with special requests such as administering medicine. Nowadays, I mostly do daycare and dog-sitting as my home is not dog-friendly. So if I'm to take care of your furry pal, I would take him or her out for a long walk at least 3 times a day - once in the morning, afternoon and evening. He or she would also come to work with me as my work place is (of course - it being GoFetch.ca) dog-friendly! All of my coworkers LOVE dogs (almost as much as me)! Because of this, I am comfortable with any day of the week or weekend and any hours you choose! I'm very accommodating to my clients' schedule and preferences. My goal is to make your furry pal comfortable, happy and feel loved while you're away! I can't wait to meet him or her. :) Note: If it's just for the weekend, I am more than happy to pop over to areas outside of Vancouver (such as Whistler, Squamish etc.)! :)
My name is Luz and I am a digital marketer at a local sustainable design company with a pet-friendly office. I moved to Vancouver 7 years ago to attend UBC and had to leave my best friend in Peru. Her name is Croqueta and she is the most energetic and lovable 13-year-old Miniature Pinscher you’ll ever meet :) I miss playing, spoiling and just spending time with her so I would be more than happy to take care of your four-legged bff. Having grown up with Croqueta, I've learned to administer different types of medicine, deal with all kinds of emergencies, understand dog needs and create instant and strong connections. Either at my office, my apartment or the outdoors, your dog and I will definitely have the best time together!

Hi there! I've had pets all my life, and for once, am pet-less. I was going to sign up for some dog walking at the SPCA or VOKRA (kittens!). Then I ran across DogVacay (now Rover), and thought it would be a fun way to get some more pet-time. But it’s a US company, so when I recently found this site, I thought it would be great to try out a Vancouver based group. We've loved all the dogs that have stayed with us and even more when they come back for another visit! We are a block away from Trout Lake park, lots of running around room, beach walks, fenced backyard and spacious apartment. I work from home, and love the company and opportunity to take breaks for walks and playtime. We share the house, so better if they're not super-barkers in consideration of our downstairs neighbour. See you and your dog soon! We can't wait to meet you both.
I work from home and have a very flexible schedule so I have lots of free time to walk and sit dogs and cats. Overnight stays are welcome too. We (with my husband who loves dogs!!) have a small and cozy Yaletown apartment. I do have a very active 40 lbs. German Sheperd-Belgian Malinois female dog as well who gets along excellently with other dogs/cats. I love animals, so well assured that your pet will be loved and care for a lot while they are with me. :) It would be nice for my dog to have a playmate as well from time to time. If chosen, my walks would usually be for a good 15-20 minute walks around the city. We also have a gated dog park (Emery Barnes) right next to our apartment. Home stays would include a lot of cuddling. :)

Hello! I'm a dog lover who unfortunately can't have one due to my travels. I'm excited to work with all breeds; big and small. I have very flexible availability to suit your needs. I will never have more than 1 dog at a time when offering boarding services so I can promise undivided attention. I'm physically fit and happy to run and play with your dog, no matter their size. I live very close to a dog park and the seawall, so there's plenty of space for that! You can expect me to walk and jog with your dog on the seawall, around Fairview and at Charleson Park as well as lots of play time with their favourite toys. Bed time will be in the master bedroom, but not on the bed. There is also some fenced outdoor ground level space at my home which is pet, smoke and drugs free. We can play fetch there and have some safe outdoor fun off leash. My building complex is a housing co-op, so we have rules prohibiting me from having dog clients over 50 lbs. However, if you're looking for a sitter in your home, I love the larger breeds too. I'm very vigilant of what dogs eat, so you can feel confident that your pet will be safe while in my care. Did I mention that I love dogs?
Hello! My names Reyes, I'm a 21 year old student who loves dogs with a passion! I've owned and cared for dogs my entire life, featuring a 14 year old Jack Russel Terrier and a 1 year old foster German Shepherd! I've sat and walked many friends dogs and im currently waiting to foster some adoptable dogs and plan to adopt soon myself! I have never not gotten along with a dog, I have read many behaviour books and have experience with positive reinforcement training. On your pups stay with me, there will be playtime, nap time, and walks every 3-4 hours, one of which will be a trail walk or a visit to a park. After some free roaming time in the yard or around the house, I'll tire em out with some more play until it is time to settle down with some cuddles and dinner. If they aren't home the next morning, then repeat!

My name is Barbora, I am from Czech Republic, Prague. ? I have a lot of dog sitting experience whether the dog has stayed at my house. I am very adaptable to suit your dogs needs, whether they need to be run or they need to saunter down the sidewalk. When I was in Czech, I took care of many dogs. Now I am traveling around the world with my boyfriend. I spent one year in New Zealand, half a year in Iceland and now we are here in Canada. Within a few years of traveling, I realized what is important for me and what I would like to do during my stay in Vancouver. Spent days with the dogs, it sounds like a dream for me. I really love all the animals and I think one of the greatest joy in the life is to interact with them. I grown up by the side of the dogs I am comfortable around any type. I have had a dog in my family my entire life. My parents they have now a dog Mat, he is Labrador and I am so sad, that I do not have him here in Vancouver. So I would love to take care of your pet! I live in the street E 28th Ave but I am working near from 28th Main st. I like to make sure that the dog owner's mind is at ease with their loved one(s) staying with me, so I prefer to set up meet & greets and will send updates and photo's of their pets during their stay. I like to think of our walks as adventures. I always find an off-leash park for lots of fun stick and ball throwing, as well as general romping around and being goofy. I look forward to meet you and having your furry friend on our adventures and I will make sure they get all the rubs behind the ears they need. <3 ____________________________ Czech Republic 2016 / 2017 - dogsitting or dogwalking Dog loving community that offer each other help with the care of their four legged friends.

Markéta D. | 3 / 2017 Barbora has been taking care about our one year old dog for a week. We were absolutely happy and the dog too. Barbora is really passioned dog walker. She truly loves each of them. She sent daily news and pictures, so we didn't have to worry about it. Before the all week guarding, we met Barbora and I was given the Mini for the test with Barbora. She is nice, willing and flexible, and try to made our Mini happy by long walks. Barbora did good job, that Mini could feel she is at home. We would love to use Barbara again and we recommended 100% for other people. . . . . .
Hi! I'm a mature, responsible and reliable animal lover who is available to look after your small dog when needed. I am eager to learn about your dog's needs and how I can assist you. I was blessed to have a wonderful dog named Buddy for 17 years (chihuahua-terrier). He was my best bud and companion. I would treat your precious pet with the same love, affection and respect. I have recently retired and am devoting my time to my passion which is caring for animals. I have over 17 years' of experience in lovingly raising and caring for dogs. I enjoy their company immensely and they will have my attention along with lots of cuddles and enjoyable walks at their pace. I can provide daycare and short/long-term boarding for small, friendly, house-trained dogs (2 max.) in my comfortable townhouse in Surrey-Fleetwood. There are a number of lovely parks nearby for long walks. Let's get together to discuss your needs and expectations. I can pick up and drop off dogs with carriers or seat belt harnesses. Safety first! Preferred areas: Surrey, White Rock and Langley. Looking forward to meeting you and your pal!
Hello! My name is EmaLee Rains, I am 25 years old and have always had dogs in my life. I grew up with a Mastiff/ Great Dane mix that was a gentle giant, a German Shepherd who was the chubbiest from his litter and a stout little snowball who was a Cocker Spaniel, Poodle and Corgi mix. I have always been a dog person and love going on adventures with my pup who is 5 as of January 22nd. I have met a lot of fantastic and adventurous people through my trails with my pup. Dogs are excellent ice breakers when meeting new people. I find that I have more motivation to get out of the house and go explore because I have my dog to enjoy it with.... also I love nature photography and my dog tends to be the model more often then the wildlife. I love the training process, I have found it rewarding and always enjoy showing off how smart the pup is, whether its my own pup or my friend who has thought there dog is too old to learn something new. I am very in tune with the needs of the animal I am responsible for and as much as I would love to give them treats all day and spoil them I don't. I understand that this creature is in the hands of humans and it depends on the love and responsibilities of us humans. Just like children they need guidance and moderation. Except for when it comes to cuddles, they can have as many cuddles as they want! Depending on your pets daily routine, I usually like to go outside, hiking or just an easy walk. I keep a strict diet for my own dog as he has many allergies. He is given a bath right away if hes dirty from an adventure (Pet smart is fantastic for this and only cost's $10). My pup loves our day end couch cuddles watching our latest Netflix show and impromptu dance parties when i'm cleaning the house. Our cat is older and we need to give her insulin shots every 12 hours and is also on a strict diet. Our cat has taught our pup what bubble space is and he respects it at all costs. They are very similar to Garfield and Odie. Let me know what you expect or what your pet is accustomed to and I can cater to your needs. I have a high respect for each individuals process and routine. If you are interested I unfortunately don't have availability week days. Overnight stay availability starts Friday anytime after 6 p.m and ends Monday @ 6 a.m sharp. Full day availability Saturday-Sunday. Unfortunately I work Monday-Friday and can't be home, sorry for any inconvenience.
Hi, I'm Josh and I'd love to spend time caring for your little furry family member! I work from home and really enjoy having a dog around. My partner and I travel quite a bit so having one of our own isn't really feasible at this point, but luckily I'm able to have a dog around quite often when we are in town thanks to this platform! There is a dog park area not too far from here where we can spend some socializing and otherwise I'm an active/fit guy and have no problem going for walks around the neighbourhood (including down to the Seawall). I will only take on one dog at a time (or two if from the same family) so I can give the best care/experience possible, and your dog should be small since I'm in a loft apartment. There is a large patio though and your dog will be allowed out there when the weather permits, anywhere on the main floor (including on the couch), and even upstairs if he/she likes. I'll send you photos of walks and resting while keeping you updated on how things are going so you can rest easy knowing that your dog is being well cared for and having a nice stay with me at my place! Please note that although I did take some younger puppies and larger ones in the past I'm now only accepting small dogs that are at least 2 years old. If I haven't taken care of your dog before please book a half or full day of Doggy Daycare to take place before the first overnight stay. This will be a chance for your dog to get to know me, go for a walk together, and to get familiar with my place before having an extended stay. I look forward to hearing from you and taking care of your little fur baby like he/she is my own!
Hello, I am an Interior Design student living in North Vancouver. I love working with animals and along with my other education I am working towards gaining my Canine Trainer license. I enjoy spending my free time outside, and love taking my dog, Whiskey for long hikes up into the mountains or down by the beach! Spending time with my dog is how I would like to spend everyday and would love to bring other dog friends along on our adventures. I am reliable and with very high personal standards. I work to create a positive, enjoyable and active environment around me. I have a good energy and am very hands-on. For the past year I have worked in dog care in a kennel/daycare/boarding facility in North Vancouver. I have experience handling all types of dogs in all types of situations. I am used to high-energy days and love it! I also have experience working with rehabilitating/exercising dogs through water therapy as last year I also spent time at AquaPaws Vancouver. A usual day with me would most likely also be with my dog Whiskey, who is a very social Rhodesian Ridgeback who loves the company of other dogs! We are comfortable staying in all day relaxing on the couch or going on day long adventures in the woods or down by the beach. I love staying active and melding my personal fitness into spending time with my dog so I am also very happy to take your pup for a run. We have a fenced in backyard for playtime and all indoor furniture is dog friendly, so no worries there! We have a outside deck as well that has steps leading down to the yard which has a couple trees in it and otherwise all grass! It is, with the deck, about 600 square feet! So plenty of room to run around and play! On the inside, the house is spacious with engineered hardwood flooring and a tight loop carpet in the living room area! I am trained and comfortable administrating medicines.
Hi There, My name is Chris and I am a younger-ish 28yr Professional who lives and works in beautiful North Vancouver. If you want to know 1 thing about me is that I LOVE dogs!! I don't own right now at this moment in my life but will one day :) During my time I loved hanging out with my best friends 10 year old white boxer named Havana who would come to work with me and I would take care of while my friend was busy flying around the world for Air Canada, unfortunately This past year Havana Hip dysplasia has taken her back leg and I could no longer babysit her. I work from 8-4 Monday - Friday and my workplace allows dogs ( think google type of atmosphere )... This was a bonus for them, As Havana would be dropped off in the morning and then picked up at the end of my shift. I would be provided the doggy bed, food and some treats and toys for the day, Havana would then sit by my feet or under my desk while I worked.. She would mingle within my department with other people and dogs throughout the day. There is a safe fun doggy play date everyday at 11 am here at work if your dog is interested..It was be a great opportunity for me to get out and get some fresh air! I would take the dog out for about 2 walks a day and make sure they did there business. If you feel bad leaving your furry loved one at home all day and feel like they are laid back and friendly, please feel free to contact me for more information! Cheers. Chris.
Hi, my name is Carli and I'd love to spend time with your pup! I am an animal lover and have plenty of experience looking after pets. I also live with my boyfriend, Ray. We would love to have our own dog, but due to travelling and work we can not have our own pup yet! We're really active people and spend a lot of time outdoors. I have a 15 year old Yorkie/Shitzu named Barkly, who lives with my mom in Victoria. Days for Barkly are filled with long walks on the beach and hikes around the island. Ray has a family dog, Luna, who lives with his sister in Toronto. Luna is a gorgeous 3 year old chocolate lab. I have spent many years dog and cat sitting for family and friends. I am known to many as the dog lover. I live in a large apartment in Yaletown - very close to many parks and only a 2 minute walk from the seawall. A usual day with a pup consists of playing with toys at my apartment, and going on a nice long walk or to the park!
My name is Sebastienne Carroll, most people call me "Seby" for short. I am 23 years old and I absolutely love spending time with animals especially dogs. I'm a very fun loving high energetic person, I walk everywhere and spend a lot of my time outdoors. I love to spend time at the park or beach anytime of year and I think my lifestyle is perfectly suited for a dog too. I grew up in Vancouver and have loved dogs since a young age, its something that many people remember me by. I've always been the typeof person eager to volunteer any kind help looking after or walking dog's of family and friend's. A typical day with and a pup would be a nice long walk probably to the park where we can play some catch with a ball or favourite toy. Then back to home for a large drink of water especially if we weren't able to get some at the park, and then we might relax at home a bit together and do any little things that I can to make sure the pup is comfortable at their home away from home for the time being. Pup will get fed and then we will go outside for a bathroom break or maybe another short walk depending, and the day will come to a close happy and tired.
Hi! My name is Alyssa and I am 24 years old, happily sharing a home with a loving boyfriend, and we are lovers of all animals. I work part time at a bridal shop, and would love to spend my free time providing the most loving and hands on care to dogs of any age. I grew up with a family dog, his name was Tigger. He was a mixed breed with a bit of Jack Russel and Corgi in him. He was a very energetic and adventurous dog and we spent many days running around and playing together. He was my friend and most trusted confidant. Hunter, my boyfriend, grew up with a Great Pyrenees cross named Clifford, who thought himself to be a lap dog regardless of his size and my boyfriend misses him dearly. We both miss the rewarding feelings the friendship of a dog brings to a home, and our home is very pet friendly! I write as a hobby, so I love taking walks for inspiration and clarity, and would love to take a furry friend along on these walks. We could take a walk down to the boardwalk at New Westminster Quay, which ends at an off the leash dog park! Head back home for some cuddles and snacks, and then take a jog around Queen's Park nearby (which also just so happens to have an off the leash dog park!) Play a little catch maybe in one of the many often vacant fields. If your puppy enjoys making new friends, I can easily set up a playdate with my Sister-in-Law and her adorable Frenchie, who is a ball of energy. My boyfriend owns a small business and works most evenings, so the company would be very welcomed and tended to, and we could take a night time walk to meet him down at the skytrain station... New Westminster station also has a dog park right behind it. Whether your puppy prefers downtime and an abundant amount of petting and love, or is happier being constantly active, I am ready and willing to dote on them! *** I work every Saturday, and will be working every Sunday starting in January - my boyfriend will be home for most of the morning, but from 1pm to 5pm no one will be home, therefor weekdays might be preferable if your dog isn't okay left alone for 4 hours ***

Hi! This is Rodrigo. I am an animal lover whit plenty of experience taking care of dogs since I have 4 back in Spain and my mother owns a kind of Airbnb for dogs and cats in our house. I love long walks with dogs, I believe they are the best company for that!! My house is big and we have a great backyard where your best friend can play if the weather is good. Also, there is a big park across the street as you can see in the pictures, perfect for walk and play!! and a 24hrs Vet is just around the corner. If I am free it would be a pleasure for me being your dog sitter!!!
Hi! My name is Olga, and dogs are one of my favourite animals. I live in the most beautiful area, North Shore, and I love spending my time outside. Currently I am not working full or part time, so I thought why not spend this time with dogs and help someone out?! I've had about 4 dogs in my house for the past 10 years and they've been always my best friends. I have been training them: teaching them how to play, basic dog commands, how to interact with other animals, etc. All of my knowledge is based on self research and practices with my dogs. Aside from that, I have rescued a puppy and nurtured it until we found the right people to take the puppy to her new home. I love spending time with dogs and interacting with them, that is why I would like to become a sitter. North Vancouver has lots of places to go for a walk with a dog: trail walk, hike, seawall walk, etc. I would definitely take a dog for a good long walk. I know dogs usually like to play, so I will also play some games with a dog for more fun. Relaxing is always good too along with some treats. I always respect the owner's recommendations and ask about usual behaviours, so I know what to expect.

Heya! Thanks for checking us out! First and foremost, Julia and I are dedicated to making sure your dog has a LOVING, safe and stress-free time here at our apartment. In fact, we like to think that your pet's time here is a resort-like experience.. You'll discover our service is premium and we will treat your pet as if it were our own. Generally, we prefer to have just one dog - our max is three in case we get siblings and want to add one more to the mix. But if you prefer for us to just sit for your dog only - that's fine just let us know. We require a meet and greet for all of our doggie guests. Our schedule is flexible so it'll be easy to set up! We live a few minutes from Emery Barnes Park in Yaletown and Nelson Park in West End - both have off-leash areas. Your dog will love the neighborhood and make new friends in the parks. We will also play with your dog - fetch, hide and seek or chase - whichever helps them get a hefty dose of rigorous exercise. This is best for your dog and the most effective way to mitigate stress. A tired dog = a happy dog. We love helping parents out when they have to go out of town. We understand how stressful it can be to leave your pet in someone else's care. We are incredibly detail-oriented and thoughtful pet sitters. When you return, you can expect a full download verbal report of all the nuances we've observed about your beloved doggie. A bit about us: I would say we are not only pet lovers, we are pet enthusiasts. Ailton I quit the corporate live to dedictate myself in creating a business that had an impact in the life of pets. I launched 9BARKS a pet-friendly eCommerce business that turns your pet pictures into unique portraits. The business goal is to create a lifestyle that allows me a flexible time to volunteer, foster & promote animal well-being. I'm achieving this goal by voluntering for TDIAO - Thank you Dog I am Out, raising money for BC SPCA & fostering kittens from VOKRA - Vancouver Orphan Kittens Rescue Organization. Julia I am a health-care project consultant and dog-lover. I love all things dogs, cuddling (with dogs), running (with dogs), reading (with dogs--if they want), watching movies (with, you guessed -- dogs). Generally just am the happiest when hanging out with a gaggle of pups. I support TDIAO, BC SPCA and really happy to help the little kittens from VOKRA. I do not stay home from 9 to 5, but will love to play and hangout with your fur baby in the evening and in the weekends! Our services: - Multiple walks per day out in the parks and neighborhood. - A calm, relaxing chill place to sleep - Plenty affection and love - Photos and videos and updates so you can relax and know your doggie is in excellent care. Other considerations and things to know: - Ailton works from home and have a flexible schedule but we do structure our time. Please be communicative on your pick up and drop off time. - We currently foster 2 kittens that will stay in their own room during your dog stay. - If you want your dog to be the only dog, that is totally doable! After the meet and greet we will work out a custom quote. - If you have a senior dog or one that needs medication or has special care instructions - we are thorough and detail oriented - All dogs must have current vaccinations, be FLEA free and be fully house trained (puppies on a case by case basis). - Please bring your own doggie bed. I have blankets if needed. - We will adhere to the commands you have in place for your dog. - If you feel your dog would be better in a crate, please provide one. - At this time, we are only comfortable taking dogs who are good with other dogs unless you’ve indicated that you’d like your dog to be solo here. Pick up and drop offs: *** All overnights are a 24 hour period with a two hour grace period. So if you drop of at 11 AM you will want to pick up by 1 PM on the day you choose. If you want to extend beyond the grace period, then we charge the regular daycare rate and you have the flexibility of picking your pup at a later time. Please be clear on drop off and pick up times. A typical day for us with your dog: Morning exercise, training and hide and seek. Then a little family breakfast, followed by lots of love and a snooze. Lots of pee breaks and romps throughout the day followed by dinner. When the evening gets cold, we snuggle up in front of the tv and watch a movie or show. This would be followed by a late night pee break, a treat if allowed, and then a tuck in.Then a final smooch good night as our eyelids get heavy and we dream of bones falling from the sky. It's pretty fun being here... If you think you’re dog would be a good match with us, we’d love to meet her or him. Please message me and we can set something up. Thank you so much for considering us. We love dogs...and all other sentient beings. Ailton and Julia

My name is Joana and I am a third-year student at UBC. I absolutely love dogs and the only thing holding me back from getting one myself is the lack of pet-friendly rentals in Vancouver. I currently live in Kitsilano in a pet-friendly suite with a fully fenced, dog proof backyard but I know it wouldn't be responsible to commit to 10-15 years with a dog of my own without having a permanent pet-friendly home. There are no other pets or children in the household. I live quite close to several parks as well as Jericho beach so your dog would get plenty of exercises. I'm an experienced dog owner. I had an American Eskimo dog for 12 years until he passed away due to cancer. Near the end, I took care of him with bathing, medicine and limited mobility issues. Since then, I've taken care of several other dogs when family friends go on vacations. American Eskimos are quite fluffy so I'm used to heavy shedding, high energy and barking. Please let me know if there's any other information you would want to know about me and perhaps we can arrange a time for a meet and greet!
