Here are the most up – to – date pictures of our new Dog Daycare/Dog Boarding house at 39 River Street, just a few doors down from the Toronto Humane Society. It’s coming along so well and we are just finishing up all the finer details and decor.  The dogs have totally made themselves at home.  As a Pet Sitter, THAT is what I most wanted out of the new home.  A comfortable, cozy, but totally cool and fun atmosphere.  We play like crazy inside & outside and we can also curl up in the pillows and cuddle when the pack needs some well deserved R & R after a long day. My husband and I looked for SO long (almost 2 years) for the right place to call our own.  We went to SO MANY property showings in SO MANY different kinds of buildings.  Most Doggy Daycares are in …

Mastering the Leash Walk: Tips from a Professional Pet Sitter

Posted on by Soulmutts Toronto in Dog Boarding, Dog Day Care, Dog Walking, Pet Sitting | No Comments

  Running a dog daycare & dog boarding business involves a lot of off leash running around. So often when we go for a leash walk I discover that the dog, while perfectly lovely in the pack, is a nightmare when on a leash! Here are some tips that you can try: 1. Use a shorter leash. At our dog boarding house we do evevning/night walks in our neighbourhood with our small dog pack. We ALWAYS see dog owner’s walking around with their dogs on 6 foot+ leashes/extendible leashes. This is a recipe for disaster. Keep your dog close to you by simply using a shorter leash. It gives you more control and is actually much more comfortable in your hand when giving corrections. The length of the leash will depend on the size of your dog of course! 2. Walk In Front or Beside Your Dog It’s commonplace to …

How to Make Your Own Dog Toys with Absolutely NO SKILL or TOOLS

Posted on by Soulmutts Toronto in Dog Boarding, Dog Day Care, Dog Walking, Pet Sitting | No Comments

When you run a Dog Daycare and have dogs boarding with you all the time you go through toys faster than you go through toilet paper LOL This got me into making my own dog toys and I discovered that not only are they RIDICULOUSLY cheap to make (like practically free because you’re using stuff you have around the house), but the dogs end up having WAY more fun with them than with the pet store stuff. Here are some of my favourites with pictures: 1. Water Bottle in a Sock. So Easy. Best crinkle noises ever.   2. Braiding Anything Old! T-Shirts, Jeans, Towels, whatever…Braid it up and POOF instant Dog Toy!   3. Dried Veggie Chews. This is just a fun little add on to your braid toys. When the veggies are still fresh cut holes in the center before you dry them and once they’re hard you …

DOG WALKING SERVICES

3+ HOUR OFF LEASH PACK OUTING

We spend a minimum of 1 hour at our Private Acre Forest Dog Run for some real HIGH ENERGY play. It is fully fenced so lower energy and/or older dogs can move at their own pace freely. Like humans, dogs are social creatures and require off leash, energetic socializing time in order to be well balanced and happy.  

We pick up and drop off to/from your home and transport our pack in a customized, fully temperature controlled Ford E250 commercial fleet van.  It has separate spaces for small and large dogs for safety during travel.

There is a 3 day/week minimum on pack walks in order to maintain consistency within our pack and at the dog run.

Dogs that spend the day with us have exclusive access to both our decked out Daycare/Boarding house, as well as our Private Acre Forest Dog Run. We spend the day as a pack, doing both outdoor and indoor activities.

Our Daycare/Boarding house is located next to the Humane Society, just steps from Queen St. in Corktown.  Some of it’s features include:

  • Top of the line rubber flooring that is soft on the paws throughout the house.
  • Fully custom built gating system; allowing dogs free run of our home, while ensuring their safety and security.
  • Depending on the needs of our pack, our home can be converted from one massive play area to 3 personalized play zones.

Providing Dog Walking, Dog Daycare and Dog Boarding Services Since 2008

At Soulmutts Toronto Ltd. we provide flexible services for you and your dog.  We are a close knit pack and strive to maintain our pack balance by slowly introducing new dogs and keeping them on a consistent schedule.  Some of the larger pet companies have a staff of multiple dog walkers who take on various different routes in the city. You may not always have the same walker coming from walk to walk, the dogs that make up the pack change and it can be difficult to get in direct contact with the person who is with your dog on any given day.

It is of the utmost important to us that our pack moms and dads know that they can reach out to us at any time. We like to know if your dog has an upset tummy that day, you can change your schedule freely if something comes up, or if you’re coming home later that day and need us to put some food down for your dog.  We are always a phone call/text/email away any time day or night.

We are trained pack leaders offering trustworthy and personal dog care services. Our dog pack is our family. As each new member joins us, they become an integral part of the pack, the family and our lives. We play together, have sleepovers, go on night walks, out of town retreats to the country dog ranch, beach picnics, and much more. It is very important for us to create and nurture these bonds because, after all, this is why we do what we do.

Bringing a new dog walker or dog sitter into your life is not just about finding someone to drag your dog around the block or up and a million elevators. It’s about finding someone who can create a solid routine that involves group socialization, skill building & good behaviour reinforcement and who allows your dog to really stretch their legs and run as a part of a pack.  As the saying goes; a tired dog is a happy dog!

We would love to meet with you and your dog to see if we are the perfect pack leaders for you!

BIGGER.  CLEANER.  SAFER.  PRIVATE.

When I first started dog walking I used to visit public parks two or three times a day with my pack.  Over time, there were a couple of different issues that I found were becoming a problem.  First of all, most dog walkers are out at the same time so there could be up to 60 dogs in one not-so-big dog park at once.  Second, not all of those dogs were well behaved or being properly supervised by their walker.  I found myself spending more time dealing with the socialization of other packs with mine than I was focusing on my own pack.

All that changed when two other long time trusted Toronto dog walking companies approached me with the idea of finding a huge space that we could make our own.  Now we share a ONE ACRE wooded area that has hills, trails and trees.  It is fully fenced in for safety and also has a truck-sized double gate system so there is no dragging 6+ dogs across the street from the truck to the park area. We drive right in.

We have started having our park wood chipped on a regular basis to create a nice progressively deeper cushion between us and the mud.  We’ve also got a nice big water station for those super hot days of summer.  There is a little jungle gym that the little dogs like to crawl all over and TONS of room for the big guys to really stretch their legs and get all of that energy out!

I know every dog that comes into the park because I know every walker that comes in the park.  We trust each other and know that we would never bring an unsafe, unvaccinated dog into the park.  We are also very vigilant about picking up ALL THE POOP that we see 100% of the time.  There is NO garbage in our park and we have lined our fences with burlap to make sure none blows in from the street.

We’ve got tree shade from the rain and the boiling sun and wind protection from our fences which seems to make the climate in the park perfect all year round.  You really don’t feel like you’re still in the city when you come into our park.  I know for the dogs it feels like a day out in the country.  They know when we are getting near when I can see all their heads start poking up, ears alert, tails start wagging and tongues start flapping about… IT’S PARTY TIME!!!
