On my way through from Yarmouth to PEI for vacation, I had made arrangements to drop Luna off for the afternoon so I could make a pit stop in the city. Both Cathy and her son were wonderful and it was worth every cent to know my puppy was warm, safe and sound. will definitely use again. Thank you guys! More...

Cathy was so great with my dog Malibu!!! I used her for several months and she always left me feeling at ease with how my dog was doing! ! Unfortunately I’m leaving Halifax, however. If you need someone to watch your four legged fur baby!! Call this lady right here!!! 10/10 + two paws way way up! More...

I was visiting Halifax from out of town with my family and needed someone to come let my dog out of our Airbnb for a pee everyday while we were away during the days. Cathy was great. Would certainly recommend her. I hired her for an hour a day and she took Kaia for a walk and sent pictures to me each day and kept me updated while she was there. I hope if I have to come to Halifax again I will be able to hire Cathy to watch my dog again. Thank you so much Cathy! More...

Highly recommend a dogs day for anyone needing their dog walked or looked in on whilst your at work. Cathy looks in on both our dogs, one of which has a nervous temperament around strangers. Cathy took her time and won him round, I couldn't have asked for anyone better to look after my dogs. You are given daily updates on how your dog is doing and also advised if she notices anything different with your dogs behaviour or health. We don't trust many people with our dogs but trust a dogs day 100%! More...

My family and I are so happy we found Cathy. She and her son have been walking our highly energetic dog for almost one year now and I highly recommend her services. Cathy and her son are extremely accommodating and reliable. I know our dog is in great hands with them, she sends daily updates and he is always so happy to see them. Thank you Cathy and Jacob!

Amazing!!! Cathy and her son are wonderful and go above and beyond for your pets. They took care of my cat while I was away and kept in contact and made sure he got his pill twice a day. I definitely recommend them! Very caring and professional. More...

I highly recommend Cathy to walk or take care of your dog. She has been walking my husky pup for a few months now and recently had her for 3 nights while we were away. Kona came home exhausted but happy. Cathy is very accommodating and has come to my rescue (last minute) a few times. If your looking for someone reliable and friendly with experience I would definitely recommend (Cathy)A Dog’s Day. More...

I fostered then adopted my baby Hazelnut (nee Mecca) a month before a planned long weekend away to Cape Breton. Hazelnut had been through 3 foster families before me, over the course of 2 months. Despite having a good life for 7 years (she was reluctantly surrendered by her family when they moved into an apartment), and despite the efforts of 3 amazing, caring foster families, Hazelnut was unsettled, unsure of where life would dump her next, and, I think, misunderstood by all the potential adopters who ran away with their tails between their legs. It doesn't help that I'm gone 40 hours/week for work, and there's nobody around to stimulate her brain cells. Hazelnut is an intelligent, loving hound, but she has some serious anxiety issues around dogs (especially, but not only, big ones), and around certain people, too (I have not yet figured out what makes her snap at people). When her triggers get too close, Hazelnut barks and lunges and froths at the mouth. So finding a dogsitter was going to be challenging! Cathy of A Dog's Day was not fazed by Hazelnut's seemingly aggressive behaviour. Our first meeting, 2 weeks after I had adopted Hazelnut, everyone nearly went deaf. Hazelnut was barking and bearing teeth, shouting "Hey everyone! I feel really uncomfortable right now! And I want you to feel that way too!" In spite of the fact that Cathy was then on vacation until a week before my weekend getaway, she planned with me an approach to introduce her to Hazelnut and gradually make the relationship more comfortable. She also brought along her son Jacob, knowing that his gentle, laid-back demeanor would be soothing for an unsettled dog. Cathy and Jacob met me at home and took Hazelnut for a walk. I gave them the key, and later in the week, they let themselves into the house, and took Hazelnut for another walk. All of this was free of charge, because they wanted to make sure the weekend would work out well for everyone, Hazelnut especially! Jacob did much of the dog-sitting while I was gone, and I couldn't be happier with the results. When I got home Monday afternoon, Hazelnut was lolling about on the couch. She was more relaxed than I'd ever seen her. In the course of 3 days, Jacob and Cathy worked some kind of de-stressing magic on Hazelnut. I will definitely be hiring A Dog's Day again in future. And if you need an experienced dogsitter (or dog walker) who is prepared to deal with practically anything, who will plan it carefully, and execute the plan with love and attention to detail, then you should give Cathy a call!

Our Nellie was so well taken care of during our 10 day trip away...longest yet ! Cathy shared pictures to us, and gave us updates on Nellie's day, which made for a more relaxed holiday for us. Nellie has more doggy friends than ever! Thank-you Cathy for looking after Nellie as if she was one of your own! More...

Cathy is one of the most amazing ladies I have ever met. She won over my very picky and timid rescue girl.....Sammy our rescur chihuahua/dachshund cross just loves her as does Gracie our English bulldog. Cathy was a huge help when our person we booked to dog sit backed out at last minute......we would recommend Cathy to anyone she truly is a guardian angel. More...

Cathy has the most amazing way with doggies. They love her. She is reliable and so devoted to her clients, her friends and their pooches. She has given me many tips on how to have an even better relationship with my dog. More...

I'd be surprised if you could find a better person or a better place to have your dogs taken care of.  I've known Cathy for 25 years and whether it's animals or people, she just naturally has a nurturing and caring spirit that defines who she is.  I've watched her love dogs past and present and when you need to feel sure that your pets will be taken care of the way you would want, Cathy is the one for the job.  She is very responsible, has always loved to walk and aside from offering the basic needs and necessities for your pet, you can be sure they will have lots of play time as well.  We are cat owners and when we needed someone to pick up our baby Walter from the cat kennel when our flight was delayed we knew we could count on Cathy.  I wish she would open up a cat kennel!  If you want to have peace of mind and the best possible experience for your dog, you don't have to look any further than a Dog's Day.

I've had several dog walkers in many different cities and I have yet to have a better dog walking experience! They are flexible and willing to help out whenever possible and truly care for the dogs. They also are very good for taking pictures and communicating! I would recommend them to anyone. More...

The first time leaving our pup alone for the night we chose to leave her with Cathy and her family at A Dog's Day Dog Walking. They took exceptional care of her while we were visiting with friends in the city, and sent us lots of updates throughout the evening to ease our minds. I would recommend her to anyone looking for quality care of your pup while you're away; she really does treat them like one of her own. Thank you all, we'll be back! More...
