Private Walks

One-on-one care for your pet! Large groups are difficult to manage and dangerous to transport. We walk in your neighbourhood, maintain your dog's individual pace, and provide your pet with 100% of our attention.

Potty Patrol

Potty Patrol by LDW is an excellent option for young puppies, or senior dogs, who need more frequent visits or shorter walks. Choose from either two 15 minute or one 20 minute visit a day. Each visit includes outdoor potty breaks or short walks, playtime and cuddles, feeding and fresh water when required, and lots of love.

Cat Visits

LDW also loves to care for your feline family members. Cat visits are 25 minutes and include playtime and cuddles, feeding, changing water, and litter box cleaning. Giving medication can also be arranged.

Our Philosophy

No Group Walks!

Unlike many group dog walkers, we walk your dog in your neighbourhood. We don't fill our car to a dangerous maximum, then transport your pet across the city. We also don't let your dog off-leash to run illegally in public parks or ravine spaces (designated by bylaws as on-leash areas).

At Leaside Dog Walkers, we recognize that every dog is unique, as are a dog's walking needs. We maintain your dog's individual pace and provide your pet with 100% of our attention. At Leaside Dog Walkers, your dog is guaranteed to receive lots of love, exercise, and positive reinforcement.


Meet our Team

Alison
Owner/Walker/Trainer/Boarding

After earning a Masters degree in PR and Marketing Alison spent many years working in the event management industry. She left the corporate world in 2011 to pursue her passion of working with dogs full time. She has always felt that client dogs benefited from private walks, not only from a safety perspective, but because it allows the dog and dog walker to develop a strong bond. She is committed to providing only the highest standard of service, ensuring that every pet receives 100% of her love and attention every day.

Lynda
Walker/Boarding

Lynda worked over 20 years in the hectic IT industry and when she was looking for a change she decided to follow her love and passion for dogs and made the leap to Leaside Dog Walkers in 2019. Working with dogs is nothing new to Lynda, she has previously owned two golden retrievers that she competed competively with in the conformation ring, as well as obedience and field trials. Lynda is passionate about the dogs she spends time with each day and provides the utmost care for all of her clients.

Monica
Walker/Boarding

Monica grew up in a home surrounded by dozens of pets. She had everything from dogs to rabbits to chickens and a big part of her childhood was taking care of, and loving, these animals. Later, Monica decided to pursue her second passion in the arts by designing, manufacturing, and distributing her own line of Swarovski jewellery out of her home, all while raising her two children and caring for the family dog. Although she loved designing jewellery, Monica realized she missed spending time with animals and decided to switch her focus back to caring for animals full time. Monica joined LDW in 2019 and greatly enjoys the time she now gets to spend playing with, and caring for, the many dogs in Leaside and the surrounding area.

Nikki
Part-Time Walker/Boarding

Nikki is an elementary school teacher who has enjoyed keeping busy during the summer by working part-time walking and boarding dogs ever since taking her own dog, Loki, for training with LDW owner Alison. She loves being outside, keeping active, and bonding with the dogs whenever she has time.
