What Clients Say


Missi loves the L&P walkers!!  I’ve seen her excitement from when a walker comes to get her on the rare occasion I’ve been at home.  Ingrid and the team are super friendly and cool with special requests.  The report card and picture uploads are well detailed.  It’s hard to trust anyone with my furry baby but L&P are amazing!  I highly recommend their service.  Thank you Leash & Paws for your caring, professional and fun services! -Missi and Mariah 🙂

Leash & Paws deserves the highest of recommendations. We have been clients of Leash & Paws for almost a year now and couldn’t be happier.The service we receive is unmatched. It is hard to trust someone to care for your puppy, however I have always felt completely comfortable with Leash & Paws. My puppy, Charlie, had severe separation anxiety and Ingrid and her team were truly a crucial part in helping in her training and overcoming this. Now she is a happy camper and can be left alone without any anxiety or issue. Additionally, Leash & Paws has been incredibly accommodating in meeting any schedule requirements, as well as constantly providing a dedicated service and a high standard of care for my puppy. The live Facebook & Twitter posts always make me smile and give me peace of mine knowing I can easily check and see what time Charlie went for her walk. The detailed notes left behind after her walk always exemplify the level of care Ingrid & her team put into caring for Charlie. I am so happy to be a Leash & Paws client and cannot emphasize enough the gold standard service they provide. – Samantha & Charlie


I am so pleased with the service from Leash & Paws and recommend them very highly. Martha is a quirky dog who has some special issues and needs a special person to walk her.  Leash & Paws certainly fit that bill.  I was extremely nervous to have Martha walked, however, I shouldn’t have worried.  Ingrid came to our home to discuss what was needed and brought Jessica to meet us to go for a trial walk.  The time spent reflects in the great relationship between Martha and her walker.  It is so fantastic to come home, read the daily report card and know that Martha did well.  It is such a joy to come home to a relaxed, happy, and walked dog.  Thank you, Leash & Paws. – Kate & Martha 

Isabelle & Annabelle

Thank you so, so, so much for taking care of our little girls in the comfort of our home. We know overnight sittings are time-consuming , so we wanted to  say thank you for spending all that time with them. They were calm &  happy upon my return. You took excellent care of them & it showed in their demeanor.The pictures of Isabelle pawing you literally got us misty-eyed. To see her growing and coming out of her shell, even just something as simple as sitting near you &  pawing you, are huge steps for her. She is a very scared little girl with strangers  so it meant so much to see those pictures 🙂 Also, I wanted to extend another very big thank you for how beautiful the apartment looked when I got in last night – it was as neat as a pin :0) – Jill, Annabella & Isabella

We have been happy clients of Leash & Paws for many months now and highly recommend their dog walking and dog boarding services. They have been taking good care of Teddy ever since we got him as a young puppy and they handle his temperamental personality very well. The extra touches such as the daily report card, photos and email updates really demonstrate how the Leash & Paws team goes above and beyond for their clients. They are also very accommodating of our ever-changing schedules and last minute requests. The genuine concern they have for Teddy’s well-being is very reassuring and I have complete trust in their abilities. Thank you Leash & Paws for your professionalism & extraordinary client service.We don’t know what we would do without you! -Daphne, Adrian & Teddy   


 I would highly recommend Leash & Paws. They have been amazing with Prada, I come home to such a happy puppy after her walk with them. Ingrid has been so great to accommodate my schedule and any changes which may arise. I love reading the notes left behind after every visit and seeing the picture of Prada they post on Facebook. They truly love animals and treat Prada with such love. I’m so glad to have found Leash & Paws!-Hilary & Prada

My wife & I would definitely recommend Leash & Paws if you are looking for a reputable, responsible dog walking service in Toronto. The Leash & Paw’s walkers were all very professional and friendly, and we knew we could trust them with our two beloved Boston Terriers. We had interviewed at least 3 other dog-walking services before L&P, and they were the only ones we felt 100% comfortable with; our faith in them paid off, and our dogs were well-exercised, happy and safe when we got home. The Leash & Paws team was super-flexible, especially in our unique circumstances, and brought a very personal touch to the walks with little “report cards,” treats and photos. Thanks L&P!

I was really struggling to find an agency that would come and walk Bella because we live in a condo without any visitors parking.  The fact that Leash & Paws come to your home and walk directly from there has made all the difference!  Ingrid’s team has been very flexible to my schedule and has even accommodated 90 minute walks that I have requested.  I have been home a few times when they come to pick her up and Bella is always so excited to see her friends, and she is always tired when I get home from work.  The Facebook updates make my day when I am at work and I love that her report card lets me know what she has been up to. I would recommend Leash & Paws to anyone without any hesitation. -Ashleigh & Bella


Conall is a rescue & although I adopted him almost two years ago & used a behavior specialist to help him, he still has huge separation anxiety, trust & attachment issues.  I met with several dog walking & doggie day care services, but Ingrid was the only one that Conall took an immediate liking to. Ingrid understands his quirks & has really helped him become a calmer & happier dog.  He plays more often now with other dogs, he is less anxious & I worry less about him & am less stressed out when I leave him alone to go to work.  I know I can’t ever thank Ingrid enough for all of her help & I highly recommend Leash & Paws to anyone looking for someone to love & care for your dog as much as you do.-Conall & Rachel


I can’t say enough good things about the team at Leash and Paws. I was at home once when the walker arrived and could see first-hand how much my dog loves to see her! The personal touches such as Valentine’s Day treats and photos at the end of each month are just a couple of ways the team goes above and beyond, and I know that Libby is genuinely cared about.  It’s such a relief to know Libby is in good hands, getting social time,  exercise and TLC when I’m not there. I have and would recommend Leash and Paws  to anyone seeking a loving, qualified walker for their four-legged family member! I am so glad I found this Toronto Dog Walking company.

I had never left Sumo before and I was very nervous about putting her in the care of someone else. I had met with several companies, but when I met with Ingrid, I felt very reassured. I loved that she sent me photos of Sumo while I was away. Every picture showed Sumo playing and having a great time. I could actually enjoy my trip knowing that Sumo was in good hands. Ingrid is very professional and accommodating. I will definitely use her boarding services again. Thanks Ingrid!
-Lindsay and Sumo

What I love about Leash & Paws is the professionalism and genuine care and concern that each walker displays. It’s nice to come home every day to a report card written up by the walker detailing the highlights of my dog’s day. More importantly, I have seen how happy my dogs are when the walkers arrive and pick them up and it’s so assuring to know that I can trust my dogs with any of the walkers employed with Leash & Paws.

  We were a bit hesitant to get a dog walker & did our research, but when we met with Ingrid she was great and Dolly loved her! Seeing their bond and attentiveness she gave Dolly and her other dogs made us realize it’s a match made in heaven! Ingrid’s professionalism is through the roof & the little report cards that she leaves are the best way to stay informed. There aren’t enough good things I could say about Ingrid and Leash & Paws.
