What Our Clients  Says About Us

Brandy – Lynn Anrud – Pet parent to Brandy 
Toronto, ON

I have been using Nadia since May 2016 and don’t know what I would do without her! I met her at an adoption fair (she volunteers her time) and just loved her. When we ended up getting a puppy, I called her immediately. She has done everything from socializing to walking to just loving my dog! She is highly dependable and always does what she says she will do.

I think the biggest thing is I completely trust her. She has a key to my house but, more importantly, I completely trust her with my dog. She loves him and it shows in how he respond to her. Nadia is certified and knows Animal First Aid and CPR. Definitely use PAWSabilities! If anyone wants to talk to me to get further info, just let Nadia know and she’ll give you my phone number.

My friend and I usually dog sit each other’s dogs but it turns out we had travel plans on the same weekend and our 2 doggies needed someone to come take care of them while we were gone. After researching online, I decided to contact Nadia at PAWSabilities. Right from the beginning Nadia was very fast in her correspondence and was very flexible when we had to switch our initial consultation time. When Nadia came for the consultation, our 2 dogs took an immediate liking to her, which surprised us because both dogs are rescue dogs and are usually really weary of strangers. By the end of our 30 minute consultation in which Nadia asked many questions about the behaviors and the patterns of the dogs, the 2 dogs were snuggling with Nadia.

During my trip away, I got numerous updates from Nadia about the dogs’ well-being. When I came home, Nadia provided me with a report that she had written out about her time with the dogs.

I am really impressed with the services provided by PAWSabilities and will definitely recommend them to all my friends!
