Dog Walking and Pet Sitting Testimonials

Read from happy Toronto clients. Find out why we’re the best dog walking service in Toronto.

We love Rebecca and the Barks n Purrs crew! They have taken amazing care of our basset hound Dean since he was 8 weeks old. Would recommend them to anyone.


Michelle P

We have been using Barks n Purrs for the last 4 months and we are very satisfied. Rebecca and Georgina have been great with our Gus, giving him the attention he needs while we’re at work. Their patience with him as he learns to walk with the other dogs (which hasn’t always been smooth!) has been such a relief for us. They’ve even given him some extra TLC on those snowy/rainy days when Gus stubbornly refuses to continue his walk!

They have a great system for cancelling/requesting walks and have been very flexible with our sometimes unpredictable schedule.

We would definitely recommend Barks n Purrs for anyone looking for a convenient, dedicated service for your special pooch.

Signing up to have our much-loved French Bulldog walked by a member at Barks N Purrs Pet Services was single handily the best decision we have made for her. That’s a big statement, but here is why:

When we first looked for a dog walking service I hunted around for the right fit since our Frenchie is an extension of our family. We wanted the best for her and wanted to ensure that those taking care of her were knowledgeable with the breed and truly cared about our pooch. In addition, they are insured and also have first aid training, which was icing on the cake as many dog walkers do not carry any type of insurance or have those expertise. I met our walker from Barks N Purrs in our building lobby and he immediately fit the mould. He was highly knowledgably, had a great personality and had sincere love for all the dogs under his care.

Every experience since signing up with Barks N Purrs has been positive. Any questions we have are answered with haste and are clear. Communication from the owner about dates they may be closed or altered hours due to holidays are communicated well in advance. Dog care tips, designed to protect your dog from the elements and keep them in great shape are provided as a value ad. Our pooch gets a chance to socialize with other well behaved dogs (independent walks available). She is always pooped when she gets back from the walk.

I unequivocally do not regret the decision to sign up with Barks N Purrs and I know our dog shares the same sentiment. A few keys words to leave with. Professional, Knowledgeable, Friendly, Communicative, Great experience.

Our dog Chloe has been walked with Barks N Purrs for over a year now and we love it! Chloe loves her walker Dayna and is always excited to see her and the pack she walks with. When our usual walker isn’t available, I am always given notice and the walker that fills in shadows in advance of the change to ensure a smooth transition. Everyone on the team is professional and I feel comfortable knowing they are caring for my dog on her daily walks. Highly recommended!

Very happy since becoming a client with them. My dog Ellie absolutely loves her walker Dayna! I love that we get updates from the walk including a photo. A nice break in your day to get an email with a goofy pic of your dog having fun when you’re at work. They’re been very accommodating with our irregular schedules too, which is something other companies have not been willing to do. Would highly recommend them!

This is an amazing service! I used this company for the first time when I went on vacation a few weeks ago and was extremely impressed. Customer service is very professional and the cat-sitter that I hired was friendly and did a fantastic job of taking care of my cat. I love how they emailed me a daily update about my cat with a picture. It was a relief knowing that Chico was in such good hands. I would highly recommend Barks N Purrs to anyone!

We’ve used Barks n’ Purrs for more than two years now for both dog walking and dog boarding.  Our dog Nugget loves her walks, and have even made quite a few doggie pals from the walks. We always feel Nugget is very well taken care of, and given she’s our fur baby, the peace of mind is so important!  They recently transitioned to a new customer portal, which allows for real time notes and pictures to be sent to our emails after the daily walk.  Love it!


Katie D.

I’ve been using Barks n Purrs for a few years now and only have wonderful things about this company and the dog walkers.  I’ve had 3 different dog walkers (due to me moving around the city) and each one has cared so much for my little dog, they are always on time, very professional, reachable, and definitely dog lovers at heart.

Each day I get a note with a picture of my dog out on her walk and she looks so happy in every picture I’ve been sent.

If you are thinking about using this company please do!

We have used Barks n Purrs for the last year or so and have been very very happy with everything. Rebecca really appreciates that our dog is our baby and did everything she could to make us feel comfortable, arranging meetings with the dog walkers, providing ample notice if there were any changes etc. The best part of the walks is the updates and photos! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a reliable dog walker who cares so much about your pets.

Cats: Henry & Pepper, Owner: Jenny


A big thank you to Moyra and the whole team at Barks n Purrs. Moyra recently looked after my 2 cats while I was out of town for 8 days and took such good care of them. She went above and beyond, including coming back for a second visit one day to change the kitty litter. Thanks for also taking such good care of my home while I was away.

Highly recommended!

Dog: Kingsley, Owner: Krista


We use Barks N Purrs pet services for afternoon walks for our westie. Rebecca and her team are extremely accommodating and friendly and very easy to work with. We also boarded our westie with Regina while we were on our honeymoon and we were very impressed with how well our pup was cared for. Regina really went above and beyond to make Kingsley feel at home and keep him happy! She sent daily updates and photos and even went out of the way to send a special note (from our pup) on our wedding day. This team is passionate about pets and we recommend their services to any pet owner! Thank you Regina & Thanks to Barks N Purrs! You’re the best!!

A former frequent traveler, I have held off traveling more for a number of years because I moved away from my cat sitter. I need worry no more. Barks N Purrs is an amazing service which came recommended to me and which I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to others. I got a huge kick out of their daily update emails and pictures while I was away. Nicole, my cats’ caregiver was a godsend. I loved the fact that she lived in my ‘hood. When she came to meet my kids before I left they took to her immediately so that was hugely comforting. I also loved the Barks N Purrs client portal and their request for complete routine, medication and personality details. Vital when dealing with new fur-clients. I did wonder if my fur-kids would remember me when I came back because Nicole is so good at what she does. Ha! Thanks so much Barks N Purrs! You’re the best!!
