Why Us?

We’re glad you asked!

At Dog Devotion we know there is a huge need for dog walkers to help caring owners juggle the responsibilities of a busy life. When creating the vision for this company, we researched the industry and shopped the competition to determine what Dog Devotion would need to provide to the pet owners of Guelph to stand out in the crowd and create a successful company that would be around for years to come. Our unsurpassed customer service and experience in animal care is what makes us thrive. 

Here is a list of the top 10 credentials and qualifications that make Dog Devotion come out on top among other pet care providers.

If you’re not completely satisfied with your service we will make it right at no extra cost to you. We’re serious about success and for that reason we are insured and bonded, are members of Pet Sitters International and the Canadian Association of Professional Pet Dog Trainers, and have plenty of references available. We can also provide a criminal reference check.

Dog Devotion aims to provide personalized attention to each and every pet – and owner!

Dog-to-dog socializing in a group setting is done with other Dog Devotion clients who have been evaluated for their social skills to ensure your pet’s health and safety. You can trust your dog is under the supervision of someone trained and experienced in dog behaviour.

If we can’t offer the services you require to meet your pet’s needs, we will gladly refer you to a trusted local professional who can.

We will provide counsel and helpful tips on many topics, including adding a new four-legged family member to your home, training, behaviour, products, informative books, and much more.

All of our group walks take place in a 2 acre, fully fenced, centrally located space that only our clients have access to. This minimizes the risk of your dog coming into contact with ill-mannered dogs or other environmental hazards that would be out of your control in a public or off-leash park.

We make every effort to ensure you will always deal with the same caregiver and never see them playing on a cell phone or listening to headphones while with your pet. We are committed to giving your pets our full attention.

Every service includes complimentary work on basic obedience and manners, including loose leash walking and not jumping up.

Pet products can be a big investment. We love trying the latest products and keep extras of all our favourites. If you want to try something before making an investment, let me know. If we have it, you can try it out for a week free of charge, and receive advice about how to make the most of it.

Dog Devotion is experienced in dealing with pets with special needs related to behaviour, age or health.
