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).

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!

Michelle

Active, Funny, Caring

My name is Michelle, you’ll know me more as the behind-the-scenes member of Move Your Doggie. I am the office manager for Move Your Doggie. ⠀
I enjoy nature and being active with my family. Fourteen years ago my husband and I adopted our first baby, our fur baby Roxie, a brown-haired tabby. She is a kind sweet loving cat and has always been very good with our two daughters and fiercely protective too. ⠀⠀
I love working with Move Your Doggie as I feel so lucky to get to know all your wonderful pets. It’s such a privilege to be able to support the Move Your Doggie Team as they tend to your furry family member(s).

Mary

Caring, Loyal, Trustworthy

Hello, my name is Mary. I love dogs and enjoy spending time with them. Ever since my dog passed away I began to miss being around dogs. I enjoy taking dogs on walks and I was missing it. I also have experience in the Veterinary medicine field as I graduated as a Veterinary Assistant in 2010, and I worked at an animal hospital for a few years.

I love all animals and have experience working with cats, dogs and horses. I am very happy to spend my day with your pets.

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. My interest in dog- walking started when I lived in Spain where I owned 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. My favourite part   of the job is seeing dogs with behavior issues learn to trust me and improve over time! I    currently own an American Bulldog named Phoenix, who is learning how to socialize with people and other animals after having had some negative experiences in the past.

I also have experience with small pets and reptiles as I also have a cat, turtles and a snake. These many opportunities I’ve had to work with different pets has taught me the importance of focusing on each animals’ individual needs and figuring out the best way to help them to have a positive experience. I am full of energy and excited to meet you and your pet!

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!
