Hi, I’m Jess! It gives me great pleasure dog walking for Subruban Dog Inc. I own two wonderful Boston Terriers, Chari (4 yrs) and Beatrice (3 yrs). I’ve also worked with horses since I was teen and have a horse named Lily, an 8 year old Percheron/Hanoverian. I truly enjoy walking my dogs and going on nature hikes, horseback riding, weight training, camping and travelling.
Aside from loving all dogs and animals, becoming a dog walker has taught me a lot about dogs and other pets. It is an important service needed by many and I love being able to make sure people know they can live their busy lives knowing their beloved pets are well cared for.
Hi, I’m Richard! While growing up in the English countryside, I worked on a farm and was always around animals…dogs, cats, birds, various farm animals, and even a peacock! I enjoy music, cooking, extreme hiking, and spending time with family.
I became a dog walker because of my love for animals and it is one of the healthiest activities you can do. I have a dog named Gilbert and he is an 8 year old King Charles Cavalier cross.
Amy has loved animals since childhood. She grew up in the bush in Northern Ontario on a small hobby farm with cows, ducks, chickens, pheasants, and two large husky-mix dogs. Her favourite activity as a child was catching (and eventually releasing) frogs. She once surprised a bear who was standing on the front porch of the house. She has lived in Mississauga for twenty years and is married and has two teenage sons.
Amy has a Miniature Australian Shepherd named Ziggy Stardust and two massive goldfish who are at least eight years old and will probably outlive her. She enjoys taking Ziggy for hikes. The fish refuse to go for hikes, just like her teenagers.
In her spare time Amy loves reading fiction. She also writes fiction. She has recently completed her first mystery novel and is at work on the second in a series. Unfortunately, fiction writing doesn’t pay very well unless you are Margaret Atwood or Stephen King, so Amy walks dogs for a living! Luckily, she absolutely loves walking dogs and would probably do this job even if she won the lottery.
Hi, I’m Megan! I have a zoo at my house – 2 dogs, 2 cats, and a corn snake! My dogs are Stanley and Abbey, a 3 year old pug and 12 year old beagle. Mingus is my 5 year old Siamese and Etta, my 6 year old domestic short-hair. Don’t forget Stu, my 4 year old corn snake.
I enjoy hiking and exploring new areas with my dogs, cuddling on the couch with my cats, and playing with Stu. My hobbies are illustrating, playing guitar, video games, and trying new foods and recipes.
I’ve worked the front office in two veterinary hospitals and a pet boarding facility, where I’ve handled all types of dogs and cats. I became a dog walker so I could still get as much time with pets as possible. I left a full-time position in the pet care field to pursue a freelance career, so being a dog walker allows me to do my other work, as well as bond and get some exercise with awesome dogs and cats.
