About Benevolent Beasts

Hi, I’m Amanda.

Hiring a virtual stranger to care for your pets while you’re away can be a nerve-wracking experience. I should know. The last time I hired a petsitter, I left two pages of typed instructions!

My goal is to provide worry-free dog walking and petsitting services. You can relax knowing you have left your pet in the care of someone who is:

  • Certified in Pet CPR & First Aid from St. John’s Ambulance
  • Licensed by the City of Toronto
  • Fully insured & bonded with ProFur
  • Has 3 years’ experience as a volunteer dog walker with Toronto Animal Services
  • Educated in force-free positive reinforcement training methods

Caring for your pets isn’t my hobby, it’s my career. As a professional pet care provider, I am committed to:

  • Force-free, science-based methods. I only use positive reinforcement to ensure all dogs in my care have a safe and enjoyable time on their walk.
  • Continuing my education in dog behaviour and training and maintaining up-to-date certifications
  • 100% on-foot services. On-foot walks mean the entirety of your dog’s time with me is spent walking, not being shuttled to another location or worse, left unattended in a vehicle. Bonus: cleaner air!

I want to meet your dog! Schedule a complimentary meet-and-greet.
