Hello my name is Shelley and I have lived in the Annex on Walmer Rd for over 20 years.This area of Toronto can be difficult for dog walking as the one off leash park does not lend itself well to walkers with a large pack. I am the owner and only employee of A Tired Dog. I prefer to walk one dog at a time so you won’t see that tangled mess of umpteen dogs wrapped around my feet, like other dog walkers. I know the area well and am aware of all the locations suitable for walking your dog, insuring a good variety of safe and caring outings. I will interact with your dog, get to know their personalities and become their walking buddy. Your pet will enjoy the experience of a familiar face every visit or walk.
A long walk is the best form of physical and mental exercise for your dog. Toronto Humane Society and other research shows that daily exercise provides a desirable social temperament as well as a healthier pet. Without sufficient exercise, they can become irritable or frustrated and may very well resort to destructive behaviour to relieve stress and pent up energy. Nothing is better than a good walk to burn up this energy and keep your dog engaged, both mind and body.
If you wish your dog to socialize with others and that same research shows socialization is an important part of your dogs well being and growth, I can always accommodate this with individually monitoring of your dogs use off leash parks.
Whether your dog needs to run with a pack or prefers a one on one leashed walk, they must fulfill their natural desire to roam and explore the scents and sounds of their surroundings. A Tired Dog is a local Toronto dog walking and pet sitting service that provides peace of mind for pet owners while they are at work, on vacation or are busy with other errands, with no minimum or long term commitment.
“I've known Shelley for a long time. She's a real dog lover. Energetic, conscientious. Dogs like her too. I can give her my unqualified recommendation. Dan H, Toronto Google Review
