Your Dog Receives 100% of Our Attention!

We Live Where We Work

A Company You Can Trust

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.

Pet Visits

Puppy visits are 30 minutes and include a walk, feeding, play and bonding time. Cat visits are 30 minutes and include feeding, leaving fresh water, cleaning the litter box, mail pick up, and play time.

Potty Breaks

This is a terrific budget option for a new puppy, less active dog, or senior dog. Potty breaks are 15 minutes and include an outdoor potty break, drink, feeding, and a few minutes of play and bonding time.

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.

Paul
Walker/Boarding

Don't tell his wife and daughter, but Paul retired from his Graphic Design business so he could spend more time with dogs. He loves developing that one-on-one relationship, especially with shy dogs who can be convinced with lots of love. He also teaches piano and writes a humourous blog.

Ellen
Walker/Boarding

Ellen has a BA from Western and 15 years work experience in finance. Raising three daughters, all competitive hockey players, she developed stamina, patience, a good sense of humor and the ability to find joy and purpose in many arenas (no pun intended). Ellen brings enthusiasm, and a great affection for all dogs, to each day at work. Not sure if Christine mentioned but I am having some episodes of vertigo so working on the computer is not going well right now.

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.
