Canine Company's dog walking and pet sitting service is just one more extension of our commitment to pets and their families.

At Canine Company, we're like family, only better. Why choose boarding – with its small spaces, strange smells and loud barking, not to mention viruses like kennel cough? Most pets prefer to be in their familiar environment where they can stretch out in their own bed. And why depend upon the kid next door, who might forget to show up and wouldn't know what to do in an emergency? Your furry friends deserve better.

Canine Company Pet Sitting is something different…something better. We’re not a kennel, not a franchise, not the kid next door and not a stranger’s home. We are caring pet professionals, with experience, with resources, with love.

With Canine Company Pet Sitting, your pets will enjoy all the comforts of home, the professional attention they need and they’ll be treated like one of the family.

The opportunity came along a number of years ago to get a female harlequin great dane puppy. We got to the breeders house, at first not knowing which puppy we were going to choose, and as soon as I stepped out of the car I saw Gracie. I instantly knew she was the ONE. She was a bit aloof and independent, which made me love her even more. I spent her first night in our house sleeping on the floor cuddling her so she felt safe and loved.
