WELCOME TO DOGS OF VANCOUVER ISLAND
Your Pet’s Second-Best Friend
Need a responsible and caring person to look after your pets? You've come to the right place! I've always been an animal owner and love all - big and small.
Whether you're going on vacation or travelling for business, leave your pet with someone who truly loves animals. Your pet will receive the love, time & attention they need including walks, pee breaks, play & snuggle time, and of course...lots of belly rubs.
We bring you total peace of mind knowing your pet is not stressing out while staying at a kennel or unfamiliar location.
NOW OFFERING IN-YOUR-HOME PET SITTING.
This means I come and stay at your home.
Servicing the Greater Victoria Area
(Saanich, Sidney, Esquimalt, Colwood, Langford, View Royal, Sooke)
As a professional Home and Pet Sitter, I offer a full range of services to make sure your home is safe and secure, and your pet is well taken care of. If there’s something specific your pet needs, feel free to mention it and I’ll be happy to help.
Please note that I have a full-time day job and work Monday - Friday thus, I am unable to return to your home mid-day during the week.
If you are interested in any of the services provided, please click on one of the buttons below to complete your request. You will be contacted within 24hrs.
NOW OFFERING A NEW LEVEL OF SAFETY & SECURITY
Services now include the use of a 360° View Pet Camera with Two-Way Audio. This will ensure that I will have "live" access to what your pet is doing at home any time I am away from your home.
Note: Requires access to 2.4G Wi-Fi
MEET & GREETS
INITIAL VIDEO MEET & GREET
A quick 10 - 15 minute video chat
Once we receive your Client Intake Form, you will be contacted to set up an Initial Video Meet & Greet. This is a good time for you and I to get to know each other. I'll go over your Intake Form and ask more about what your expectations are, where you live, and your pet(s) details.
IN PERSON MEET & GREET
After the initial video meet & greet, you will be contacted to set up the first in-person meet & greet which will be held at your home.
During the in person meet & greet, I will spend time getting to know your pet(s) and you can get a sense of how we interact with each other. We will also go over the Pet Emergency Form that you will have received after the Initial Video Meet & Greet.
If you have a dog, we will go for a walk together so I can get familiar with how your dog is on leash and what your neighborhood is like.
You can expect this visit to be upwards of an hour as it is imperative that the pet(s) and I are comfortable with each other.
NOTE: This meet & greet is also available if you are unable to do the initial video meet & greet.
2ND IN PERSON MEET & GREET
At the end of the 1st in person meet & greet we will book a 2nd in person meet & greet to occur 2-3 days before you travel.
The 2nd meet & greet is important so that your pet(s) and I can get reacquainted with each other. Keys, alarm codes, WiFi passwords, and parking instructions can also be provided at this meeting.
Hi Keri! I just wanted to say thank you again and to let you know I got your email and note. What an amazing service. Thank you so much for your observations and work with Annie She walks so much better with me now! I can really see a difference. And she has been so calm and happy. We couldn't have asked for a better dog sitter. I will definitely be recommending you to our friends. It's also so good to know that we now have a pet sitter who we can trust and Annie loves.
