Paul and I own and operate Davisville Dogs. We've lived on Davisville Avenue for over 20 years. We love this area and we love dogs. A perfect combination if you ask us, and helped us name our business.
We can't be happier that we get to spend every day with our dog clients and their families. Of course we do a lot of walking but another part of our day is boarding. We already have a dog (Newman) so we typically only board two or three dogs at a time and we treat them just like our family.
This is my dream job. Sue and I finally took the leap a year ago to run this business full time and we love it! So do the dogs.
We know that when you live a busy life, it's hard to consistently provide the attention and care that your pets demand. We've been there! We provide boarding and walking in the most fun and caring way. We focus on small groups - on and off leash - or private walks. We are Dog Walker Certified and Pet First Aid Certified.
We are always prepared for any pets' needs and ensure that they will receive the best care and love. Their happiness and care is our priority and we strive to provide a service we would want for ourselves.
Here walking in the woods with his dog Toby. Dave has had experience with large breed dogs his whole life. He's had Toby, a Golden Retriever for five years. When he's not walking dogs (which he loves doing and is very good at) he's involved in his other passion. Dave is a graduate of Humber College in Television Writing and Production and spends his spare time working in all aspects of film production, including directing and writing.

Katy grew up surrounded by dogs and animals in the English countryside. She has a natural affinity for dogs and dog behaviour and especially enjoys working with active hunting breeds that require lots of mental stimulation. She has owned Bangle for 10 years and they love exploring the city's parks, ravines and beaches together.
Aside from dog walking, Katy has a long career in PR and communications, an MA in Creative Writing, and a St John's Ambulance Pet First Aid Certificate.
Here he is pursuing one of his favourite activities - chasing the ball. Newman is our loveable Aussie-doodle. He's key to providing dogs who are boarding with us a terrific experience. We think he has a bit more Aussie Shepherd than Poodle in him, which is why he has a herding instinct. This is ideal when the dogs are playing in the backyard. Newman makes sure they all come in when called.
