COVID-19 Protocol: My goal is for everyone's comfort and safety. If you are working from home, I will text or phone when I am within a few minues of arriving, giving you an opportunity to get your dog ready for their walk. I will knock and wait outside your door for you to bring them out. I have my own leashes and will be following any guidelines for wearing a mask.
My name is Shannon and I am the sole owner and walker of A Walk in the Park- Dog Walking and Pet Sitting Services. I’ve been loving my business since the spring of 2011. I am an animal lover and have had furry loved ones of my own for many years. I know how important they are in one's life. That’s why choosing someone to care for them is such an important decision. I will make sure that your loved one is well exercised, cared for and treated with love, kindness and respect.
Most dogs are very social animals and happiest when in a pack. When our busy lifestyles prevent us from spending enough time walking, playing with and socializing with our dogs they can become lonely and bored. This can lead to negative behaviours. I will ensure that your pets walk is filled with fun and lots of good sniffing and that will in turn ensure a happy and tired dog.
I have done training with a Positive Reinforcement Trainer and have committed to using only positive methods with all dogs. I will not alpha roll your dog, use leash corrections or walk with choke chains or prong collars. I am a recommended walker at The Toronto Centre for Canine Education.
I am Insured and Bonded through Binks Insurance. I am Pet First Aid Certified.
Thank you for visiting.
