ANNA BROTMAN - Owner
I'm a paragraph. Click here to add your own text and edit me. I’m a great place for you to tell a story and let your users know a little more about you.
Seven years ago, Anna, was living in Budapest and was searching for a dog walking and sitting service for her own two dogs and cat. Unwilling to compromise when it came to the quality of service they would receive, she realized there was a need for an exceptional pet service in the city. She wrote a business plan that weekend but within a couple of weeks she unexpectedly had to come home to Canada. Instead of going back to her 9-5 desk job she decided to start, The Dog Park, in Toronto. The city she grew up in and knew best.
She has since found a true sense of fulfillment in her work with animals as well as in business and couldn't imagine doing anything else. She received her Pet First Aid Certification from Walks 'N' Wags and has her commercial dog walker permit for the city of Toronto.
In her free time she can be found volunteering at animal sanctuaries in Ontario and playing with Lola, her Havanese dog; Dylan, her fluffy Ragdoll cat and Millie, her goofy Old English Sheepdog.
Laura Jones - St. Lawrence Market + Corktown Dog Walker
Laura loves walking dogs in the St. Lawrence Market and Corktown neighbourhoods! You can find her caring for both our dogs on private walks as well as those on group walks.
On any given day Laura walks 15kms with her small packs, giving them tons of one-on-one attention, exercise and of course cuddles! She finds being a dog walker in Toronto a very relaxing and fun job and loves the amount of physical exercise it brings.
Laura understands how important dogs are to the family unit and she is dedicated to providing the best possible care and service to them. She loves making new pet buddies, and wants to ensure they are as happy as can be.
"Dogs bring me so much joy and happiness! Seeing their little faces everyday just puts a smile on mine".
Charlotte Ferrarei - Corktown + Leslieville
A lifelong lover, owner, and pet sitter of dogs, Charlotte has found her paradise as a pack leader with The Dog Park. Since moving to Toronto, she has been without a furry companion, and now channels all her affection and care for the dogs she walks in Corktown and Leslieville neighbourhoods.
A theatre actress by night, she can think of no better way to spend the rest of her time than with animals- and can be caught on more than a few occasions serenading them on their walks.
Charlotte understands the importance of the work-play balance that dogs require, and puts safety first with every animal she encounters, all while still having fun!
When off-leash, Charlotte manages her lifestyle blog, dives deep into interior decorating on Pinterest, and frequents the Toronto Humane Society to unwind."
Amanda Bamford - Corktown
Amanda has a huge love and appreciation for dogs. She is completely present with every group and loves taking them to off-leash parks to give our packs tons of exercise! She also takes the most incredible photos!
Amanda is a professional photographer and an interior designer. She has a young son, James and a French Bull Dog, Bree. In her free time Amanda enjoys spending quality time with her family in their new dream cabin in Quebec.
Megan Hogler - Weekend Walks + Boarding
Meg loves to walk all kinds of dogs, big and small. For her, getting to know their unique personalities, developing a bond with each dog and helping out their owners by ensuring their daily walks are filled with lots of exercise, attention and love, is a true privilege.
As a freelance journalist who works from home, Meg loves being able to power down her laptop, unplug and get outside with her packs. She loves the fresh air, physical activity and social nature of dog walking. She currently owns a chubby orange tabby cat named Leo but hopes to someday add a French bulldog to her furry little family.
“I’ve always loved dogs. As a pet owner myself, I know how important it is for you to feel that your pup is in good hands which is why I love this job. Being able to help out busy dog parents by providing their fur babies with fun, safe walks and lots of love feels so rewarding!”
Sydney Scott - Leslieville
Sydney has always been an avid animal lover! Growing up surrounded by pets of her own and always going out of her way to look after friends and family's pets whenever the opportunity would arise.
While volunteering for the Humane Society, Sydney learned how to understand dogs' behaviours and was taught basic tactics for dog training - including taking them on walks, feeding, and safely breaking up any rough housing.
Monica Wadwa - St Lawrence Market
Monica recently moved to Toronto from London, England and loves all things nature, art, yoga, spirituality and doggies!
