Welcome to


 We are a dog walking and pet sitting service that operates in the Hamilton, Ontario region.  Our service is not only for your pet, but it's for you too. It gives you peace of mind knowing that your beloved pet is exercised, socialised, and shown love and care when you are unable to provide it.

We are here to look after your pets while you may be at work, on holiday or just to help out when you need an extra pair of hands!

We offer a variety of services for your cherished pets from dog walks to cat/kitten and puppy visits; we can help socialise your puppies to ensure they become well rounded adults.  We also offer visits for smaller pets such as rabbits and hamsters. As part of the home visit we can also keep an eye on your property while you are away allowing you to have a stress free holiday.



My name is Sara, and I run Paws in the Park.  My love for animals has been a life long passion which started from an early age.  This was due to always having pets which were loved and treated as part of the family.  I have been looking after dogs for over 20 years.  I have cared for a variety of pets all of my life and lived with dogs, cats, sheep, chickens, horses and reptiles.  I have lived in both the city and country, and have a love and appreciation of both lifestyles.  My experience in the countryside has been rewarding and led to a variety of work with animals; from dog walking, to horse & dairy farms where I have been the sole caretaker of various animals.  Animals are a fundamental part of my life.  I currently live in Hamilton, Ontario with my husband and two children, and our lovely dog, Orlagh.  Living in the city, I have been focussed on dog walking and the care of city-type family pets. I personally could not think of a home without a pet!

I would love to meet your pets and offer them the attention and love that they deserve.  I will provide care for your cherished pet as if they were my own.  They will receive the highest quality of care while you are away on holiday, at work, at an event or if you just need a break!


Your pets are in capable hands as I am certified in Pet First Aid, fully insured and police checked.  Also a member of the Canadian Association of Professional Dog Trainers (CAPDT).
