"Emily was the best thing that could've happened to our family! From the moment we met her, she was loving, caring and patient with our German Shepherd, Reya. Despite Reya's behavioural issues, Emily took her on as one of the pack without hesitation. She even did her homework by talking to our former dog walker. Within no time at all, Reya fit right in and had no issues at all. She was exhausted from all the stick chasing and fun of her daily walk, which we could see from all the photos that she took to keep us updated. We only wish that Emily worked on the weekend too! We no longer have Emily as our dog walker because we had to move out of town, but we recommend her to anyone who is looking for a trusted, reliable and incredible dog walker."

"I can't thank you enough for the care that you've taken with Austen while giving me peace of mind when I have to leave him home. He loves his pack walks and is tired and happy when I get home. Knowing that he is having fun allows me the time to run errands without having to worry about him being intended for too long. It was a good day when I called you."

"We're extremely pleased with Emily's Urban Canine service. Our guy was starting to get depressed being home alone. Twice a week pack walks and he's back to his happy bouncy self again. The exercise and socialization has made all the difference. His joints are also feeling better with the regular outings. Emily's professionalism and care of the dogs is fantastic. A big plus to us also is that she doesn't take them to public dog parks with unruly dogs and owners. We definitely recommend her service. A+"

"I have been using Urban Canine's pack walk service for over 5 years and can truly say I believe it has helped to make my dog Cody a balanced and well socialized dog. Emily is diligent, responsible, clearly enjoys working with dogs and makes an effort to accommodate the needs of the dogs and owners alike. I get great value out of this service and, in fact, have recommended Urban Canine to several of my friends. Keep up the good work, Emily!"

“Emily, We are very sad that we are moving away and that our baby Kingsley will no longer be a part of your pack. He has always been excited to go with you every day and has come home fully exercised and ready for a good sleep. We couldn't have asked for a better pack leader and friend to our family. Thank you very much for everything that you have contributed to our family. Your positive impact on Kingsley's life will be with us forever”

"Our dog Molly has been with Emily for 3+ years now and we wouldn't have it any other way. Emily genuinely cares for the dogs in her 'pack', and their well-being is her top priority! Emily goes the extra mile, is a pleasure to work with, and I would recommend her outstanding services to anyone. Congratulations Urban Canine!"

"We really appreciated Emily's services at a very busy time in our lives, when we had a new baby. She was always easy to communicate with, and took great care while walking our dog Cody. Emily has a real connection with animals, and a car-full of happy dogs! She was always gentle and understanding with Cody, who was 11 years old and had some health issues. I would recommend Emily's dog walking service, especially to working and busy families. It is great for the dogs to be socialized together and to go for nice, long walks during the day. Emily was always on time, and had a treat ready for old Cody. We really appreciated the service Emily offered to our family and four-legged friend.”

"Emily walked my two large dogs for several years until I no longer needed a dog walker. My dogs were always excited to see her as they really enjoyed their walks with Emily’s pack. One of my dogs is a wanderer, but Emily managed to keep track of her while still allowing her to have fun. Emily is extremely reliable and shows up in even terrible weather. She was also very flexible when I needed to change days. Both my dogs are long haired and love mud and water, but Emily always cleaned them up before turning them loose in my house, which I really appreciated. It was also really convenient to have Emily clip their nails as I never had to worry about taking them somewhere to get this done. I would highly recommend Emily to anyone!"

"I have had the pleasure of having Urban Canine work with my guy for a year or so now. I have noticed a significant improvement in his interaction with other dogs during this time. My vet has also commented on the great shape that he is in. Largely due to Urban Canine and the lengthy runs he gets when he is out with the pack.Emily is passionate about what she does. She has helped me a great deal. I am gone from the house four days a week for a minimum of 11 hours. I am sure that I would have had to find another home for my guy to live in. That would have been a very tough call. Thanks to Emily that decision did not have to be made. I am certainly indebted to her for that."

"Emily is amazing! Her care of the dogs and her knowledge of canine behavior is outstanding. From the moment I met Emily, I felt confident she would take the best care of my dog Birdie and it was a great relationship right from the beginning. I knew on walk days that when I got home, Birdie would barely even be able to lift her head to welcome me home she was so pooped! Thank you Emily, you made my life and Birdie's so much better!"

"Our family has never needed to hire anyone to walk our 9 yr old 95 lb lab before, but when family schedules did not cooperate this past spring Emily entered Jaxon's life. She would pick him up at the house and off they would go. Jaxon of course can tell time and was looking for Emily by the second day. I can't say enough about Emily's love for animals that is so immediately recognizable. Jaxon truly enjoyed his time with her."

"Charlie has been a member of the Urban Canine pack for just under a year now and he loves his romps through the countryside every Monday and Thursday. Charlie came to my family and I through a rescue group with some aggression issues and anxiety. Emily helped us identify some of these issues and with consistency and routine exercise, Charlie has become a trustworthy, beloved member of the family. I would highly recommend Urban Canine Dog Walking Services to anyone looking to improve their canine's quality of life. Thank you, Emily, for all your energy and expertise. The time you spent (training) with Charlie and I is already paying off. We walked a ton this weekend. Was Charlie perfect? No, but he was so much better. I’m really hopeful that he’ll continue to improve. Best part is… I want to walk him. I want to walk at the busiest times, just to watch him and see what he’ll do. He still barks a bit but not nearly as much and sometimes not at all. His lunging is much more infrequent as well. I think he realizes that his movements are quickly disabled by the Halti and I think he’ll eventually just give up. In the house he seems much more relaxed too. Invoice is paid and it’s the best investment I could have ever made for both Charlie and me! Thanks again for taking the time to work with us!"

"Emily walked my dog Jack for over 2 years. She has an incredible love of animals that I couldn't imagine her doing any other job! She was reliable and always flexible with any changes I had to make for time or dates. Whether I wanted Jack walked twice or four times a week, she would accommodate my schedule. Having a golden retriever with an affinity for mud and water, Emily always made a great effort to have Jack dry and free of mud using the towel I left at the door. On hot days, she would also check that he have water upon returning from walks.Jack is a gentle, very social dog who has benefited from spending so much time with other dogs during Emily's walks. He is tolerant of all types and temperaments of dogs from this socialization in his younger years.I knew on the days Jack had a walk with Emily, he would be tired out and sleeping after his walk while I was at work. The pictures she sent of Jack playing for me to see at work would bring a smile to my face. I would highly recommend Emily and Urban Canine for you and your dog!”

In the spring of 2021 we brought our new puppy home. Despite living in a home with another dog and 2 cats, Kitley was terrified of encountering other dogs and people during walks. We tried everything to help Kitley, consulting with our vet and dog trainers, as well as our own research; but nothing worked. After contacting Emily and discussing Kitley's issues, she was sure that she could help us. The day of Kitley's first pack walk Emily took Kitley under her wing and carefully introduced her to the pack. Within a few weeks we saw substantial progress and now Kitley loves to meet and play with other dogs. We have also used Emily for private training sessions. Her knowledge of dog behaviour and patience with Kitley is outstanding. We wouldn't be where we are today without her help.

"I wanted to thank you for working on her approach with other dogs. I notice a huge improvement - she used to lunge or even lie down until another dog came by, and then jump on the dog. Now she either ignores them with my command “leave it” or just wags her tail and sniffs. She loves her walks with your dogs and is so content at home. I find she is much more affectionate - maybe because her energy has been released. "
