TO THE MAX Dog Walking Services is now open and looking for new dogs to join the pack.
With almost a decade of experience walking dogs in the GTA, rest assured your pooch will be in good hands. Max has expert knowledge of dog behaviour, pack mentality and FUN.
Your pet's happiness and care is our number one priority and we strive to provide a service we would want our own pets to receive.
Safety is our number one priority, so here's a list of the precautions we'll be following each day.
1. No contact pick up/drop off. This means if you're home with your dog I'll have you bring them out to the backyard/front porch. From there you can let them come up to me and I'll leash them up with my own leash. If you're in a a condo or apartment building, I'll have you bring them down and outside of the building where we'll go through the same procedure. If you will not be home then I can enter your building, but will be wearing a mask at all times.
2. I will be sanitizing all dog collars, harnesses, dog jackets, etc on pick up and drop off. I will also be using sanitizing wipes on any door handles, door knobs, crate latches and any surface I may have to tough while around your house. It would beneficial if you could do the same.
3. I will social distancing at all times while out with the dogs. If I see that a dog park is too crowded, I'll instead take the dogs on a leash walk in the area until I feel it's cleared out enough that we can keep a safe distance.
4. If you have Covid-19 or have come into contact with somebody who has it, you'll have to go into quarantine and I will not provide services for 14 days.
A full 60 minute walk at an off leash dog park. A great chance to run free with the pack. We go to a number of different parks and make sure your dog is always engaged in fun times.
A 30 minute on leash walk through the neighborhood.
A fifteen minute visit that includes a bathroom break and play time.
Our service area is south of Eglington Ave, East of the 427, west of Royal York Rd and north of Lakeshore Blvd W.
Your dogs are safe with us.
Each day we'll have new pictures and videos of the pups adventures. Follow us on Instagram @tothemaxdogwalking.
We take great pride in sharing the fun times your dog will have with us.
Max is seriously our dog Kimchis favourite person in the world. She is beside herself with happiness when she hears him coming through the garden gate because she knows she'll have an amazing time with Max and the gang of pups at the park. He's been a trustworthy caregiver for Kimchi from when she was a young pup, reinforcing positive behaviour from day one. We highly recommend Max to any dog parent looking for a friendly, skilled, caring, dependable and conscientious dog walker. We are just sad that he moved to Etobicoke! Kimchi misses you Max!
For the last five years, Max has been the highlight of Rooney's day. He has a special way with her (she magically listens to him, for starters, ha!) and we credit Max with how healthy our nearly thirteen year old Shar Pei is. The photos he manages to capture on their adventures are the icing on the cake.
Gideon and Walter
Max walked our dogs Walter and Gideon for years when he was downtown and I can't stress how good he was to us and our dogs, specifically Walter who needed a lot of guidance when he was a pup. He always treated our buddies with love and care - the killer photos of them playing while we were at work always helped us know that they were having the best time in the best possible hands.
Gus is a high energy husky! But that's no match for Max - equally energetic, loads of fun and creative, Max doesn't just walk dogs, he always finds new and interesting ways of interacting with them. He is constantly engaged with the dogs and truly becomes a member of the pack. Gus misses his best bud! Etobicoke is very lucky.
Madge and Ellie
Max was absolutely the greatest friend and protector to my dogs, Madge and Ellie. They consider him family to this day and are happy that he's moved and started a family but they really miss him. He was always great with them and I think ran further and faster to keep them in shape. No matter the weather they were always taken out and brought back exhausted and content. He'd check on them if they were ill and was also really great with our son. I couldn't recommend Max more and I'm jealous. There's genuine kindness, rigour and care for dogs in Max.
He also takes amazing pictures of dogs. Several world class cinematographers have marveled at his shots when I've worked shows away.
