About Us

Judy

Outgoing, Fun, Loving

My name is Judy, owner and operator of Move Your Doggie. My wonderful team and I offer dog walking and pet sitting services in Ajax, Whitby, and Oshawa in Durham Region. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration, a Diploma in Law and Security Administration and I am Pet First-Aid and CPR certified by Saint John Ambulance. With my education, knowledge, and many years of experience with all types of pets combined,  I aim to deliver the most positive customer experience.

If they could talk, my Mini Dachshund, Sophie, and my cats Oscar and Emma would tell you that I have a passion for pets and will take much joy in spoiling yours with lots of love, attention and interactive play during our walks and visits. I look forward to meeting you and your pet(s).

Marissa

Hello, my name is Marissa. Growing up, I have always had a love for animals and have many of my own. Shown in my picture is my late dog, Max. He was an Australian Blue Heeler/Jack Russell Terrier who lived 16 amazing years! I also have 4 cats – Emmie, Skye, Sophie and Kramer. In addition to experience in my personal life, I have also held a Kennel Assistant position at a veterinary clinic and am a weekly volunteer at a local cat adoption centre. Through the centre, I have fostered many cats and recently helped a pregnant mama birth 7 baby kittens! As for my educational background, I completed a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Health Sciences and minoring in Psychology at the University of Western Ontario.

Following my BA, I completed a post-graduate certificate in Exercise Physiology at Niagara College, where I played women’s volleyball. Now, I am back in Durham Region and eager to care for your fur babies!

Sarah

Adventurous, Engaging, Responsible

My name is Sarah, and I have a passion for animals of all shapes, sizes and species! My boyfriend and I are the parents of two crazy and very spoiled kitties, who have a strange love of cupcakes. Whenever I go anywhere, animals are drawn to me, but that’s never an issue! I am comfortable and confident with any dog, regardless of the size or temperament. I quickly learn how to instantly connect and bond with your pets by building trust, as I want to ensure that I give them the best care possible.

I am also certified with St. John Ambulance for Pet First-Aid and CPR. I am very excited and looking forward to going on adventures with your pets!

Debbie

Gentle, Loving, Kind

Hi. I am Debbie, and this is my best buddy, Pedro. Pedro is a Havenese, and just one of many dogs that I have loved in my lifetime. My love for animals started as a child with a beagle named Trixie; two Poodles, GiGi and Tammy; a Shepard named Chico; two Shelties named Lady and Bella; Thumper the rabbit; quite a few cats; and a beautiful thoroughbred mare named Lacey!

Through them I have learned a lot about love, life, and first aid! I look forward to meeting you and lending a helping hand in the care of your beloved pet(s) as well! I am retired now from running my own childcare business for over twenty five years and I am ready to devote my time to caring for your fur babies with the same love and devotion!

Aerin

Hi, my name is Aerin. I have been walking dogs for more than 14 years of my life and couldn’t imagine spending my time any differently. I love how dogs teach us unconditional love through their affectionate and playful manner along with their loyal companionship and the bond they build with you over time. I truly believe we can learn so much from them! I look forward to meeting your dog and creating a special bond that will grow with each day.

Alice

Energetic, Trustworthy, Patient

I’m Alice and I love animals of all kinds! My love for animals started as a child, always surrounded by dogs and cats. I lived in Spain for seven years where I owned and operated a vegetarian cafe. In my free time I walked and boarded numerous dogs of all sizes, from Yorkies to Mastiffs and Pitbulls. I enjoy working with dogs to improve behaviour through positive reinforcement, lots of exercise and playtime.

I also have experience with small pets and reptiles. These many opportunities I’ve had to work with both people and pets has taught me the importance and value of delivering an exceptional customer experience. I am full of energy and excited to meet you and your pets.
