Keri has been a dog lover since she can remember. She grew up surrounded by them and comes from a huge family of animal enthusiasts! Ask anyone she knows and they’ll tell you it’s her mission to befriend every dog she meets! She loves the outdoors and exploring, whether in the city or in parks and trails with her family Golden Retrievers, combining the two passions is her favorite pastime. She comes from a strong business management background and was eager to join a team which promotes a healthy and happy environment for our furry family members…it’s the perfect fit!
Chances are if you live in our service area, then at some point Amber has stopped you on the street to pet your dog. A familiar face to those living near Sherwood Park, Amber is a compassionate dog walker and a very popular pet-sitter for families in Lawrence Park. With both her mother and grandmother working in pet-care, and a background working at vet clinics, Amber was the first choice of dog walkers to join Eglinton Dog Walker. When she is not walking small dogs, letting seniors out for potty breaks, visiting puppies or pet-sitting, she is probably volunteering her spare time at a local vet clinic.
Annette has been a dog lover her whole life. Her grandfather raised dogs for hunting and she has fond memories of spending time with them. She has had several dogs over her lifetime, currently has 3...all have been rescues. She is an avid runner, completing 2 half marathons, training with her pooches along the way. She loves the outdoors, hiking, and spending time with her 7-year-old daughter. We’re so thrilled to have Annette on our team!
Naomi has worked at many horse stables training and providing all around care for the horses. She has volunteered at 2 different animal shelters providing care to horses, cats and birds. She is the owner of two rats named Napolean and Josephine, as well a, a beautiful, sweet and playful rescue named Sadie. Her favourite dog park is Sherwood park, that's where you'll find her Mon-Friday with some very happy four legged friends.
Eric enjoys being outdoors and staying active, so leaving an office job to become a dog walker only made sense. Eric enjoys taking the dogs on long hikes in the woods. He will take some of the more active dogs mountain biking with him. Eric is full of energy and that is why we give him our most active dogs.

Jenna is the proud owner of a tabby named Tuna and a rescue dog named Happy. She is also an urban bee keeper doing her part to increase the bee populations. Jenna enjoys cooking, camping and hiking. Whenever you see our big colourful Eglinton Dog Walker van on the road, that's Jenna behind the wheel with a big smile. Jenna loves taking the dogs swimming and it's evident when you see her wearing water shoes. Jenna grew up with pigs, dogs, rabbits, birds and a cat. She is a wonderful addition to our team.
After 40 years in news and broadcast, Peggy returned to her first love, dogs. She began walking professionally 2 1/2 years ago and has never been happier.
Dogs have always been an enormous part of her life, slightly nudging ahead of her two grown daughters. She learned to stand by pulling herself up on “Pepper”, a Black Lab. There followed “Jet” (another Black Lab), “Charlie Brown” (a Beagle), “Paddington” (a Newfoundland), “Molly” (another Newf), “Ollie” (Newf #3; what can I say?). Then came a Greyhound rescue, “Emily”, and a Yellow Lab, “Kasper”. The current three with whom Peggy shares her paycheque (pictured L-R), “Bingo”, a Fox-Red Lab, Bingo’s mother, “Phoebe”, and the pack Alpha, “Tucker”, a Black Lab rescued 8 years ago.
Peg is excited to get to know her new packs at Eglinton Dog Walking.
Taylor is the proud owner of a sweet rescue named Bon Sai. Taylor loves to get out into the forest and let the dogs be dogs. The dogs in her pack are young, energetic and move fast. We're lucky to have Taylor as part of our team.
