Keeping Your Pets Happy !

We Love Your Pets Too !


Pet Sitting visits are commonly needed for clients who travel for business or vacation, work long hours or have busy schedules.  Standard Pet Sitting visits are typically 1/2 hour long and are customized to the needs of each pet.  Some examples of our service include feeding, scooping litter, playtime, potty breaks for dogs, administering meds, etc. We are able to schedule as many daily visits as you require, recognizing that some pets may need more attention than others.  Also provided, if needed, are extra little tasks such as bringing in the mail or newspaper, watering house plants, turning lights on & off, adjusting the temperature of the home, etc.   To put your mind at ease, we offer updates via text message after each visit.

Let's Get Physical !


A happy, healthy dog is one that is walked regularly.  Our walks are typically 1/2 hour in length and are done in the familiarity of your own neighbourhood.   We do not "pack walk," but rather make sure each dog receives the necessary time and enjoyment they deserve. Canine companions from the same home, of course, can be walked together.  Dogs are never allowed off leash.  The safety and comfort of your furry family members is paramount to us.  And neither rain, nor snow, nor inclement weather stops us from performing our dog walking responsibilites. To put your mind at ease, we offer updates via text message after each visit.

A True Home Environment


We offer boarding in our home as space permits for cats, dogs, and other furry critters.  (All are welcome). Visiting dogs live with us as if they were our own. They have access to all the comforts of home and a gigantic fully fenced backyard as well as regular walks. Visiting cats also enjoy a home environment residing in their own spacious, feline friendly "suites," with cat climbing trees, large window perches, etc.  Pampering your pets is our pleasure.  And we'll send you regular updates via text message or email to let you know how your pet is doing.

Pet Taxi Anyone ?


Need help getting your pet to a Vet or Grooming Appointment? Or perhaps you need food, litter, medications, supplies picked up and delivered to your door?  These are just some of the extra services we can help you with.  All you need to do is ask and we will do our best to accomodate you.

My Story

Passion for Animals

My passion for animals and the desire to spend as much time with them as possible, sparked my decision to become a professional pet sitter.  I was someone working a high stress, management job with a long commute who needed a change.  Life is too short and I wanted to be doing something I truly loved.  With that in mind, I founded COCO's Pet Sitting & Dog Walking.  Since I was a small child, I have felt a deep empathy and connection with animals.  As an adult,  I do my best to live my life by making choices that are compassionate and ​cruelty free with regards to ALL animals.  Each animal I meet, enriches my life, teaches me something and ultimately makes me want to be a better person.  For both my husband and I, animals are not just pets or possessions, they are cherished family members, beloved companions and sometimes even best friends.  For the last 10 years, I have held the position of Executive Director for a local Animal Rescue, something I thoroughly enjoy .   I am trained in Pet First Aid, insured and also a member of Pet Sitters International.  I have excellent references which I am happy to share and lots of years of experience. I am flexible and endeavor to offer each client a pet care package that is designed for their individual needs.  


What My Clientele Have to Say

Coco's Pet Sitting has been a life changer for our family! Not only does Carol come to our house to watch our 3 cats while we are away, she watches our dog in her very own home. Since using Coco's it doesn't feel like we are "boarding" our dog at all, instead she's just going to her second home - where she gets lots of love and attention inside a home environment, along with walks and time playing outside in a huge fully fenced backyard. When you meet with Carol you'll see how much she truly loves animals... all of our pets absolutely love her! We have complete peace of mind going on vacation knowing that Carol will be watching our fur-babies. Coco's is a professional, reliable and trustworthy pet sitting business that I would highly recommend.

If you are like us, your cat is family & you want only the best for him.  After a long period of trying to find the best place which can take care of Morris (our 16-17 year old orange cat) during our trips, we finally found Coco's Pet Sitting & Dog Walking.  I've never felt more at ease leaving our cat with anyone as I did with Carol.  She is very knowledgeable, friendly, professional & has a huge heart for animals.  The Meet and Greet, scheduling, communication & ultimately the stay at her home went perfectly!  It is comforting to know that we can go away & leave him well looked after &  safe in such capable hands. Carol is now our go-to care provider, we fully recommend her.

I use COCO's Dog Walking Service on a regular basis anywhere from 3 to 7 times a week depending on my schedule.  It has allowed me peace of mind that my dogs are getting a break during the day & also getting out for some exercise when I am working late. I have found Carol to be very knowledgable, professional, flexible as well as genuinely interested in the well being of my dogs.   Great service, great lady, definitely would not hesitate to recommend.

Best Pet Sitter Ever !  Carol comes to our home & visits our two cats whenever we travel. One of our kitties is diabetic and requires insulin twice daily.  The other is very nervous so having home visits works great for us. We have absolute trust that our kitties are in the best hands.  We also love that we get updates and photos about our pets while we are away.   It makes our vacation that much more relaxing.
