About Dog Devotion Pet Care Service

Dog Devotion was founded in the spring of 2011.  Since then, we’ve been offering caring, friendly and professional dog walking and pet sitting services in the Guelph area. We’re devoted to staying up to date on the latest training techniques and pet sitting trends by attending conferences and seminars by some of North America’s most respected animal trainers and behaviourists. Our extensive library of books and other literature relating to dog training, behavior and pet sitting is continually expanding. We utilize these and other materials to provide you and your pet with the first class pet care you deserve.   We believe in using positive reinforcement methods and will never use confrontational, correction-based or any other out-dated method of handling your pet.  We’re certified in pet first aid and are able to care for all types of companion animals. We are fully insured and select only the most professional, passionate pet lovers to care for your four-legged family members. Please contact us today to find out how we can meet your dog walking or pet sitting needs.

We’re not striving to be the biggest pet care provider out there, but the best!

About The Owner – Janis Lapins

Hi, I’m Janis.  I own and operate Dog Devotion Pet Care Service.  I’m a dedicated animal lover, life-long pet mom and an experienced animal care provider. I share my home with several pets and have a genuine passion for animal welfare. In the past I worked for the OSPCA, a high-end pet resort as well as volunteering with the St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog Program with my first rescue dog, Bailey. I’m currently an active volunteer with the organization Red Rover Responders. I’m a proud supporter of animal rescue organizations and have fostered many dogs, cats and pot-bellied pigs in my home. Through my memberships and associations I have a wealth of knowledge and access to all the latest industry trends. When I’m not caring for your pets I enjoy playing hockey, being outdoors and spending time with family and friends.
