Your pet’s in safe paws

Jacky Dee here! I’m a loving mom to Zoe The Adventure Dog and the proud owner/operator of Nanaimo’s Dee’s Dogs.

I’ve been hiking with and taking care of animals for as long as I can remember, and since Dee’s Dogs started in 2018 I have been caring for Nanaimo’s canine and small pet community.

I take my profession seriously.

During hikes I fit GPS collars to all dogs, I carry commercial insurance coverage, and am certified in canine first aid.

In other words, your pet’s in safe paws with me!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do you carry water on your hikes?

    Yes! I carry plenty of water during the hot summer months, and during the very rainy season and winter months I intentionally go to places with fresh drinking water available for the dogs. And I always have one or two large, 64-ounce bottles of water in my vehicle.

  • What is your pet sitting service area?

    I offer my pet sitting services in the Nanaimo area and in communities just outside of town, such as Cedar, Lantzville, and Nanoose Bay, depending on the needs of your pets.

  • Can you walk my dog regularly every weekend?

    No. Although I do work occasional weekends, and I am open to advance requests for weekends and holidays, I cannot guarantee a regular weekly service as I do take time off to recharge.

  • Will you muzzle train my dog?

    No. I have very limited experience introducing dogs to muzzles for the first time, so if your dog requires one it is your responsibility to muzzle train.

  • Do you offer discounts when pet sitting for low-needs pets?

    Yes, I offer a lowered pet sitting rate for cats and other less social pets. Some dogs may also qualify for this lower rates if they require less frequent check-ins and social time. It all depends on your pet's particular situation.

    To see if you quality for a “low needs” discount, please inquire for details.

  • Do I have to pay a deposit for pet sitting? What if my plans change?

    An initial deposit of 50% is required to secure your booking. This deposit is non-refundable and non-transferable.

    The remaining 50% balance is due 7 days before the scheduled stay. This portion is also non-refundable. However, if your plans change, this portion is transferable towards a future pet sitting stay.
