"We're first time boarders and first time dog owners so you can imagine we were a bit nervous about leaving our girl for the first time with people who aren't family. Well, there was no need to worry at all! Ellie had a great time with Gary and Chantelle and made friends with the other dogs there in no time (and she's a bit of a nervous girl who isn't super into other dogs). We loved getting daily pictures of her and updates and it allowed us to relax and enjoy our first real vacation in three years, knowing that she was being well taken care of. The little barn where she slept was super clean and we loved the thoughtful touches they had for the dogs (anyone else leave the radio on for their dog?) We would not hesitate to send Ellie there again and have already recommended Pawrecious Pets to other dog and cat owners we know."

"Paradise boarding on 50 acres of trails with cosy, spacious accommodations. Your pooches home away from home!” This statement is a cut and paste right from Chantelle and Gary’s website, and it is %100 the perfect statement. When we found their business online, we called to see if we could come and check out their setup, they were very accommodating allowing us to stop in. From the moment we opened the truck door our puppy was super happy with the other friendly dogs on scene, playing and running free within the very large fenced in area. Their children were even there playing and having fun with us and the other dogs. The building that houses the dogs is very roomy, heated, and super clean. We even brought our own crate and chew toy for our puppy to sleep in for added comfort.

We sent Rex (9 mth old Brittany Springer mix) for a weekend stay, and then for a full week for March Break a few months later (this was super hard for us, but we were travelling by air). Chantelle and Gary made us feel as though we were leaving Rex with family members. We received daily photos and videos of Rex playing with other dogs, playing fetch, and just being able to be a dog and get his energy out. Daily walks in large open fields were also a part of Rex’s every day life while staying with them. Rex is young and still walked on a leash but multiple dogs were off leash throughout the week while he was there, we already see a difference in Rex’s walking because of what he experienced with the other dogs being off leash.

Rex was never alone unless it was time for a Kong/chew toy, or to sleep, and even then, the other dogs are separated, but there to communicate with each other.

If Rex could talk, I’m sure he would have already asked to go back. Thanks for the awesome service you and your family provide, see you again soon! "

Kevin, Nadine, Zoe, and Mr. Rex!


"We recently left our 1 year pup with Chantelle for a month. This was her first experience away from us. Chantelle made our time apart worry free and we received daily photos and updates. There was a minor health concern and Chantelle managed it professionally and efficiently, which we really appreciated! Our pup got lots of care, attention, exercise & playtime. Chantelle and Gary are dedicated to the dogs in their care and our pup had a great time. I would highly recommend their services! Thanks so much! "

"Our guy Griffin is a chronic kidney failure cat. This means we need someone familiar with his condition and capable of administering subcutaneous fluids as well as oral medications. This honestly seemed like an impossible feat, to find someone qualified to help us with his care when we traveled. We wanted him to remain in his familiar surroundings of home, less stressful for him. When we inquired at our veterinarian office they recommended Chantelle McCracken of Pawrecious Pets Pet Sitting. Chantelle met with us and it was an instant connection! Her compassion and experience/knowledge is evident right away! Griffin loves her and she is so gentle and caring when administering his fluids and medications. She even had pointers for us! We can now travel without worry and her daily updates and pictures really provide us with the piece of mind we need to relax and enjoy our time away. If you need a professional with the medical care of animals call Chantelle! Best cat sitter ever! "

"Do you ever daydream about your perfect vacation accommodation? What about a dream accommodation for your dog? We have 2 young and very active labrador retrievers so the dream for us was open fields for running and lots of attention for frisbee and ball play. The sleeping must accommodate both dogs and their personal dog beds. Our dogs are not caged so it would be ideal if their "kennel" was spacious and more like a room in my house vs. a dog cage and outside access is a must. An added bonus would be to have someone onsite that could handle a doggie medical emergency.

Well our dreams came true when we found Pawreciouspets. We went for a meet and greet to check out the facilities and wow, the "suites" are new, clean, spacious with added touches of home including heating/air conditioning and a radio that tunes the out external noises. The suites are also spacious enough for both dogs and their beds. The suites are bordered by a fenced run, more like a paddock, which is big enough for ball and frisbee. Chantelle and Gary have thought of everything. But wait, there is more. In addition to the paddock area, the property has acres of open fields and trails and Chantelle and Gary take the dogs for long walks/runs/playtime. If all of that isn't enough, Chantelle is also a Registered Vet Technician.

We are now living the dream as we just returned from a week away and the dogs vacationed at Pawreciouspets. We received regular updates which included photos and videos and returned to find the dogs contented, stress-free and relaxed. We have already booked our dogs for their next vacation. We recommend any pet owner looking to board their dog(s) to contact Chantelle and Gary. Your dogs will love it and you can enjoy your time apart worry-free. "

Many thanks Stan, Sandra, Casey and Finn


"I highly recommend the invaluable service that Chantelle and Gary from Pawrecious Pets provide. Right from the moment that our dogs and us met them we knew they we an amazing fit to provide care when we were at work or away for a long time. They are excellent communicators, extremely punctual and my dogs love them. The pictures they provide during their visits always bring a smile to my face (I swear they could be professional pet photographers!) As an added bonus Chantelle is a Registered Vet Tech so any health concerns can be noticed quickly (or get great advice!) . So if you are looking for people that do an amazing job caring for your pets definitely give them a call."

"Roxy, our green, cheeked Conure, has a lot of fans. Many of our friends love babysitting her while we are away, but Roxy finds going to a strange house a little stressful.

Earlier this year we were looking to make Roxy more comfortable when we traveled. What we were looking for was someone in the County to come into our house and keep Roxy company so that she could stay home while we were away.

Chantelle and Gary were recommended to us, and we have been delighted with how they care for Her Feathered Highness.

Further, when we got caught in covid-quarantine for an extra 10 days, Chantelle and Gary stepped up and made sure Roxy was comfortable and cared for the whole time.

Daily pictures, and Roxy’s obvious comfort with them have made us repeat customers."

"In all honesty I am one of those over protective dog moms. 😊. I had boarded Wolfie, my husky, before and it was not a positive experience. I was so reluctant to board him again so we hadn’t been anywhere without Wolfie for over three years. Then Chantelle and Gary were recommended to me by a close friend whom I trust so I decided to check them out and it was the best thing I ever did for both Wolfie and I. Wolfie absolutely loves it there. The setup they have was made for my high energy boy. The large fenced in area for them all to run and play in, plus the trails in the woods for many walks and for them to run are perfect for Wolfie. Wolfie is in his glory when he is there. The large rooms are perfect for him to have a rest when needed. So much room even for my larger dog. His full on husky howl and helicopter tail every time we pull in the driveway is evidence that he loves it. He gets so excited. He can’t wait to get out of the truck to greet everyone. For me, leaving him with a registered vet tech provides peace of mind for sure. The fact that all dogs go through an interview process to make sure they are a good fit and have the right temperament was another important piece in making me comfortable leaving Wolfie but honestly the cherry on top is the love, personal attention, play time and care that Wolfie receives from Chantelle, Gary and the kids. Wolfie loves the kids and they love him so much! He is cared for as if he was their own. The daily photos and video updates show me everyday how happy he is with them. Wolfie truly has found his home away from home with Chantelle, Gary and the kids. I have complete peace of mind knowing he is being looked after just as if I was there myself which allows me to fully enjoy my time away. As an overprotective dog mom that says a lot. Chantelle and Gary go above and beyond to care for Wolfie. I would highly recommend trusting your dog to them. Your dog will love it!You will not be disappointed. This is luxury boarding at its best. Wolfie won’t go anywhere else to be boarded. Like I said before Wolfie has found his home away from home.

Thank you Chantelle and Gary for taking such great care of Wolfie and for providing me with peace of mind."

Carrie and Wolfie


"Our cat Sugar requires insulin injections twice daily to treat her diabetes. This condition needs to be monitored closely and we cannot recommend Chantelle enough! With her background as a registered veterinary technician, she understands and is more than capable to help with Sugars needs. She is so gentle and caring, a real animal whisperer! We were so fortunate to have our veterinarian recommend Chantelle and her in home cat sitting service We are now able to travel with no worry, knowing Sugar is in capable hands! Contact Pawrecious Pets for any of your pet care needs and medication administration Professional, reliable, reputable and compassionate."

Amy, Bruce & Sugar


"Chantelle truly cares about animals. I trust her to come into my home and care for Kitty. She gives Kitty all the time and attention required and sends a daily photo. I will continue to use and recommend Pawrecious Pets Pet Sitting."

Pat & Kitty


"We have had a few bad experiences with in home cat sitters, from not showing up to forgetting to supply water and leaving our home untidy. When we relocated to PEC we discovered Pawrecious Pets Pet Sitting. Chantelle is a god send! She is extremely qualified, professional, honest, compassionate and trustworthy. Our cat Minnie is a little shy but ventures out for pets and playtime with Chantelle and we receive daily email updates with pictures to prove it! She gives Minnie the best care and leaves our house the way we left it, in immaculate condition! Highly recommend Chantelle!"

Doris, Bill & Minnie


"As long time reaidents of PEC we have toured many boarding facilities for our pooches. Many with too many dogs, unkept accommodations and substandard care. We were overjoyed when our veterinarian recommended Chantelle and Pawrecious Pets! We went for a meet and greet with our recently rescued Portugese Water Dog Parker, who isn't always find of other dogs. But not to worry, Chantelle and Gary have a controlled environment which allows for dogs to be separated and still receive great care! With only 3 dogs at a time they are able to spend the one on one time. The suites are so spacious, comfortable and clean! Their property is beautiful and trails for daily walks is perfect. Our boy loves his exercise! Thank you for treating Parker like your own and keeping us updated every day with pictures! It's truly luxury boarding all the way! Forever grateful to have found you guys!"

Tina, Paul & Parker


"Our family was planning a vacation and needed someone who could watch out 9 month old puppy. He is an Australian Shepherd who is used to being outside a lot and spending time with kids. We knew leaving him home and having family members pop in just wasn’t an option.and boarding in a cement cell just wasn’t an option either. We came across Chantelle and Gary on Facebook and checked out their services. We were so impressed. Each pup got a huge room with windows, lots of area to run and play and of course the daily walks so the dogs can really run and blow off steam. We just knew this was somewhere our boy would be happy. On the day of departure we dropped off our boy and you could just tell he was excited, like he knew he was going to have a great time. We got updates daily on all the fun he was having, making new friends and going on daily adventures. The day we got home and picked up our boy, he was so happy to see us, but I am sure a little bummed that his play dates were done.

Chantelle and Gary go above and beyond to make sure the animals they care for are happy and their owners are kept at ease knowing that their fur babies are well taken care of. Their facilities are top notch and really provide the luxury boarding they promise. This was the first time we ever boarded a pet and we have zero regrets. We will absolutely use their services again and highly recommend them to anyone looking for boarding.

Thank you for everything!!!"
Chad, Tiffany and Berkeley


"Our female lab “Charlie” recently spent 8 nights at Pawrecious Pets all inclusive luxury dog boarding in Prince Edward County. This was the first time we have left our dog with someone other than family and we can’t say enough about the positive experience. Charlie received the best care from Chantelle and Gary and we had no worries while we were away. The facilities are immaculately maintained and clean. Every day we received an update and photo or video clip of Charlie having a great time with the other dogs. We truly appreciate the fact that they only care for three dogs at at time which allows for individual attention and a non stressful environment. We have definitely found a second home for Charlie when we travel! Charlie is all ready booked for her next "vacation"."
Therese & Charlie


"I was so nervous to leave my Great Dane for the first time but as soon as I met Chantelle and Gary I knew he would be in great hands. They are wonderful people and took care of my big guy like he was their own. He had a blast staying with them while we were gone for the week and we got lots of picture updates to prove it. I am so grateful that we found them and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for someone to take care of their fur babies!!."
Krystal & Cash


"As new residents to PEC, Chantelle and Pawrecious Pets Pet Sitting was recommended by our pet store to look after our cats during our summer travel. Chantelle is very professional, friendly, and pet-focused. While we were away we received a daily check-in from Chantelle and updates/photos of our gang. It is extremely comforting to know that while you are away, your pets are getting very high quality care. With another trip planned, we booked Pawrecious early to ensure our cats are well looked after and we will be able enjoy our time away as well."
Don, Katherine, Steve, Darryl & Jazzy


"Our year old Samoyed, Lexi, is energetic and loveable. We tried Chantelle for dog boarding initially because of the proximity - only 10 minutes away. Chantelle’s family proved our decision was right as they take great care of Lexi, give her lots of attention and make sure she gets lots of exercise when she visits. Better yet Lexi has bonded with their family, loves to visit and meet new or old dog buddies. We highly recommend Chantelle and Gary if you are looking for someone to take good care of your pet."
Joan, Jim & Lexi


"We have enjoyed using Pawrecious Pets for all of our pet sitting needs. Gary and Chantelle have looked after our cat and two senior dogs, in our home. These people are so reliable, friendly, knowledgeable, dependable and accommodating. They also have helped with outdoor aid (tree/plant watering) we needed, when travelling. We are able to travel long and short term, with ease. We have recommended a few friends to use them, and they have been happy!"
Leslie, Floyd, Oscar & Ruffus


"We trusted Pawrecious Pets with the care of our 7 year old Golden Retriever Max. You absolutely 100% get what you pay for! Luxury boarding all the way! Max had so much one on one loving care by Chantelle and Gary. He spent hours playing, walking, running and having a blast! The daily pictures and/or videos were amazing, such great piece of mind while we were away. The accommodations are spectacular. Literally home away from home. Large, comfy, bright and a home-like atmosphere Having a professional Registered Veterinary Technician care for your furry one is truly the best care they deserve and Chantelle is your go to dog boarding facility. Great service and care! They do what they say!"

Four paw rating!!! 
See you again soon!
With love   💗
Michelle, Vic & Max


"We welcomed a new Goldendoodle pup to our home named Zara and began our search for a reputable, reliable and compassionate caregiver when we needed to run errands, travel for work or vacation. We've always had family, friends or neighbours care for previous pets but let's face reality, no one truly wants to take on the responsibility of caring for your pet for free! As soon as we met with Chantelle and Gary we knew right away we found paradise boarding and daycare for our girl! Their accommodations are stunning! Large suites with a cosy feel. Bright and beautiful. The 50 acres of trails are amazing for daily walks and the outdoor play area is fantastic for off leash play, full of toys to choose from. The best part is Chantelle is a Registered Veterinary Technician, a true professional with the care of animals and her genuine passion for the animals in her care is evident! Our pup is treated like their own and the pictures and updates we receive daily are a great touch! We highly recommend Pawrecious Pets, whether it be for a day or a week, your furry one is truly experiencing luxury all inclusive care.

Kim, Mike & Zara


"We were new to Oakville and very anxious about what to do with our two cats, Murphy and Alex, when we went on our Cuban vacation. In our previous home, our daughters had always temporarily moved into our house to look after them but our new location was too far for them to travel. Despite being 16 and 11 years old, neither of our cats had every stayed in a kennel so that was our last resort. After doing an internet search for cat sitting, I found Pawrecious Pets. Chantelle was my cat saviour. She responded promptly to our short notice for cat sitting and she was extremely professional in all aspects. While we were gone, Chantelle sent regular email updates as to how the cats were doing which was very reassuring. Her compassion and sensitivity for our cats was evident when we got home and both of them were extremely calm and peaceful. This has never happened before so we know that they were well looked after (and perhaps did not even miss us!). We are moving again to Stoney Creek and I am trying to convince Chantelle to extend her service area so that we can have the same peace of mind on our next vacation. If you are looking for that peace of mind while you are away, we highly recommend Chantelle's home pet sitting services." Susan and Bird


"Chantelle is great! It was calming to have a trustworthy and responsible person care for our cats, Onyx and Floyd. Chantelle's delightful personality quickly gained our trust making us repeat customers. Thank you!" Tyson and Jessica


"Chantelle of Pawrecious Pets is the best! I love knowing that I can call her up and she will come even at a moment's notice to care for my animals. And the fact that she is an RVT is even better, my pets are on medication and I have no worries at all that their medical needs are fully taken care of!" Bev


"I have used Pawrecious Pets services for well over a year now and I sleep well when I am away knowing that my cats are in excellent hands. Three of my animals are on life maintaining medications and knowing that they are getting their meds and that they are being monitored by a Registered Veterinary Technician is very reassuring. I can enjoy my vacations and only worry about missing them. Pawrecious Pets care includes a huge dollop of love so your animals won't miss you as much as you miss them!!" Deb


"I always feel confident when leaving my furry family in Chantelle's hands. Chantelle has a kind, gentle way with animals and I know mine receive only the highest of care when Chantelle is pet sitting." Miranda


"I would highly recommend Chantelle - we could not ask for a more capable person to look after our cats while we're away. We used to have two cats - the older one (Boots) was very sick and required daily medication and extra special attention. At first we weren't even sure who would be able to look after Boots given her condition, and the fact she was VERY difficult when you tried to administer her pills! Yet we wanted to avoid taking her to the vet's every time we went out of town. Chantelle always did a great job looking after Boots, making sure she actually took all of her medication, giving her extra-special care, and giving us ongoing updates on how she was doing while we were gone. And Boots could stay in the comfort of our own home – which was much less stressful. Boots has since passed away due to her illness, but Chantelle continues to pet-sit our other cat (Mickey) and gives him the same love and attention we've come to expect from her. She is very reliable and trustworthy, and we have no concerns leaving her the key to our home while we're away. A few times I've called or emailed Chantelle at the last minute – she has always been able to accommodate our requests and has been very flexible. I would not hesitate to recommend Chantelle to my friends and family." Melissa


"We have been using Chantelle to walk our new dog 3-4 times per week. Chantelle is also a Vet Tech so her expertise can be quite helpful and comforting . Chantelle is very flexible in her scheduling and will work around your needs. However, her greatest asset is that she is very trustworthy which is the key for a service like this . I would highly recommend Chantelle to help take care of your pets." Kate and Mike


"We recently moved to Oakville from a small town where everyone knew everyone else and I had many cat-sitters. We have 2 cats that are very dear to us, Sasha and Souki. We had a dilemma. New location, new situation, no one to look after our cats. However, we still wanted to vacation. I called many places offering care; most were away from my home. Chantelle came for an interview and I instantly could see she loves animals. Chantelle was very accommodating and professional and has great experience with animals. She followed our instructions impeccably. Our animals were very well looked after. We have used Chantelle's services twice now and have had the peace of mind knowing that our cats were left in good hands and were able to stay in our home where they are most comfortable. Chantelle even looked after our cats during a time when she was to be married....dedication! We would not hesitate to recommend the services of Pawrecious Pets (Chantelle McCracken) to anyone." Nello and Deanne


"We are delighted to give a recommendation for Chantelle. She has taken amazing care of our two cats Mikey and Holly, as well as our house, while we were away. We can tell that she really loves animals and our kitties were very happy under her care. She also sent us regular email updates with funny anecdotes which gave us great reassurance and peace of mind, not to mention amusement during our trip. We feel that we are very fortunate to have found such a caring and reliable individual to look after our furry family members." Vera and Clara


"My husband and I share our home with a rabbit named Hank. It’s not easy to find someone who knows how to take care of rabbits, so I was thrilled to meet Chantelle and learn that she’s also a Registered Veterinary Technician. Knowing that someone not only loves animals, but is also professionally-trained in their care, enabled us to enjoy our short vacation without worrying about our boy. We loved that Chantelle sent us daily messages letting us know how Hank was. Bill and I found Chantelle to be very responsible and trustworthy, and are happy to recommend her!" Shannon and Bill, and Hank


Chantelle and Gary from Pawrecious Pets walked my dog Pebbles during a week while I was away. I am very overprotective of my 14 year old Bichon Frise because she has a spinal injury and I wanted to make sure I could trust anyone who would come into contact with her. From the minute I met them I felt that I had found the right people. They seemed so nice, friendly and gentle – real dog people. The people who were staying at my house told me that one day when Chantelle and Gary came to walk Pebbles, she got so excited that she ran crazily around the house. This is something Pebbles does when she is happy, so right then I knew that she loved her walks with these people. Also, I knew that they showed up because my neighbours and I are very close knit and on quite a few occasions two neighbours spotted them walking Pebbles. So all in all our experience was a great one with Pawrecious Pets and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Kim Addison, Addison Music Learning Centre, Music Lessons in all instruments for all ages, www.musicisfun.ca


"I would recommend Chantelle and Pawrecious Pets Pet Sitting. I recently used her for the first time while I was out of the country for two and a half weeks. You can imagine how nervous I was initially as that is a big responsibility. I need not have worried. Not only did she keep me posted via email, but she used her initiative to adjust the heating, turned on different lights and collected my mail so that it looked as though someone was home. One of my pets is a very fussy cat who does not take to everyone and Chantelle gradually won her trust, which is a major accomplishment. The other one suffers from separation anxiety and Chantelle made sure he had lots of attention so he didn't pine away. I will definitely be using Chantelle during my frequent travel. " Christie


"We needed somebody we trusted to stay at our home with our 3 dogs, 2 cats and 2 rabbits... Chantelle and Gary saved the day! On short notice, they were able to take on our mini zoo for the week. Once we discussed our needs with them, I knew our pets would be in good hands. They did indeed do a wonderful job. One of our dogs Bridie is currently on chemo, and they didn't miss any of her daily meds nor her home chemo treatment scheduled the week we were gone. Knowing that Chantelle is a registered veterinary technician helped us with the peace of mind to leave Bridie for the week - we knew that she could pick up on any concerning signs and arrange for care as per instructions if required. Thankfully that was not necessary. Chantelle and Gary provided email updates, and despite occasional canine misadventures such as chewed and broken Christmas tree ornaments - they kept a cheerful demeanor (and saved our tree from an early demise!). Our home was as spotless as we left it (perhaps even more so!), and the zoo crew was as happy as the day we left them. Thank you to Chantelle and Gary for such wonderful care, and the peace of mind provided. I would not hesitate to recommend them, and already hoping to book them for our next scheduled vacation! " Emmanuelle, Steve and the zoo crew


"Shortly after moving to Burlington, we needed a pet-sitter to take care of our cat and two dogs. Our pets are pretty old (and our cat is blind) so they're picky about who takes care of them (and let's face it, some people are picky about them!!). Needless to say, it's very difficult to find the right person. But the minute we met Chantelle, we knew she was the perfect fit for our pets because they LOVED her right away. She was also very professional and responsible because she emailed us reminders, updates and follow-ups throughout the process. She's definitely a keeper! " Louis, Julie, Cookie, Tubby, and Buffy


"A big thank you to Chantelle & Gary of Pawrecious Pets. When our 12 year old cat Sylvester developed diabetes we needed a cat sitter capable of giving him his twice daily insulin injections. Chantelle with her professional qualifications proved to be an ideal find. Sylvester took an instant liking to both Chantelle and Gary, and our cat can be very choosy in this regard which was also a concern for us. We found Pawrecious Pets to be very reliable and you can tell that they truly like animals. We wholeheartedly recommend Chantelle and Gary. " Bill, Audrey and Sylvester


"I can’t say enough about the pet care we have been receiving. Like most people, admitted or not, I am willing to go to extremes for my pets and this makes leaving their care to another person difficult to do. I was forced to look for help when one of the pets developed diabetes requiring insulin treatments. Although I continue to bend my schedule to accommodate the pets I have times when it isn’t possible to make the injection schedule. Beyond the care for diabetes I have had to ask Chantelle to administer pills and contact her for some short notice help. The medical care that is delivered is exceptional but I didn’t expect the extras. I get a note with an update, putting my extreme pet personality to rest. Most importantly, for me, is through the notes it is very clear that Chantelle gives the pets love and attention. The experience has been more than I had hoped for and I can’t imagine when I wouldn’t recommend them. " Kevin, Abbey and Rosie


"Pawrecious Pets has been looking after our two cats for over six months now with exceptional care. Our boys have received the same love and attention we give them which allows us peace of mind when we are away. Chantelle, as a Registered Vet Tech, provides us with an extra level of confidence, that she can identify potential issues and act quickly and appropriately. We recommend Pawrecious Pets without hesitation. " Mike & Debbie


"It’s hard to find someone that you can trust with your precious dogs. Someone to love them, play with them, and take care of them when you’re not around. I consider myself very lucky and blessed to have met Chantelle. She not only takes care of our boys, Buddha & Chubbs, walks them daily, takes them to the park to play soccer, feeds them, gives them fresh water, I ALSO get an email daily with a picture and an update on how our pups are doing and how many times they went to the bathroom. It is the highlight of my day, receiving the picture and email update, and to know our pups are being well taken care of. I also must mention, she is very accommodating If my husband and I are stuck in meetings at work, I know I can count on her to go let the dogs out. Thank you Chantelle! " Kathryn, Matt, Buddha & Chubbs


"Thank you for taking such good care of my precious furkids (all six of them!). I had an opportunity to go on a once in a lifetime trip. I hadn't taken a vacation in 9 years because I couldn't leave my zoo and have any doubts, however small, about how they would be cared for while I was away. I know lots of responsible and kind people and there are lots of pet sitters that come highly recommended, but a good recommendation was not enough reassurance for me. Having seen you in action as a Registered Vet Technician over five years or so of fostering I knew you were loving, extremely capable, knowledgeable, and give all animals the best possible care. It meant the world to me to have you look after my gang and I was able to go on my trip with absolute confidence that they would have nothing but the best care and socialization while I was away. Thank you for being so wonderful. And thank you for letting me take my first trip in NINE YEARS! " Kimberley Ford (Kiera, Chelsea, Buster, Grace, Punkin and Megs thank you too)


"We have a 14 month old black lab shepherd mix, who met Chantelle back in the spring. When Tahlia first met Chantelle and her husband for the first time, she was excited, as she loves to meet new people. Tahlia is a fairly well trained dog (she still thinks she’s a puppy and can get away with puppy stuff sometimes!). We love having Chantelle around so help us out when we need it. She always takes such good care of Tahlia and our cat Zoe. "


"We recently got married and were looking for someone to watch Tahlia for that day back in June. Her daycare offered to take her for the whole weekend, but it was hard to let her go for that long. We met with Chantelle and she was nothing but honest and trustworthy from the start – and she’s even a registered vet technician! My worries were instantly put at ease about hiring a dog sitter. She has since then helped us on many occasions, whether it be a Jays game in Toronto, and Tahlia needed a friend to play with, a walk, and an outside break, or traveling to my family or in-laws in St. Catharine’s, where it wasn’t possible to bring Tahlia at times. All in all, I truly believe Chantelle is one of Tahlia’s best friends, my husband and I are so happy that we have Chantelle in our lives and that she is such a great support system for Tahlia when we need her! Thanks Chantelle " Genevieve, Brandon, Tahlia & Zoe


"We were stuck for a cat sitter and found Chantelle with Pawrecious Pets through an online search. I was hesitant to have a stranger come into my house and take care of my furry family members (two cats), but I could not have been more pleasantly surprised! Chantelle was fabulous! Not only were my cats happy and well adjusted upon my return, my house was well cared for too! Thank you Chantelle for your wonderful services. I will be using Pawrecious Pets on every occasion I'm in need of a pet sitter in the future and will recommend you to everyone. " Jennifer Pilzecker, TJ & Twinkle


"We wish to thank you for your excellent services as the services were indispensable for us when you cared for our golden oldie Sporty!! She is reaching her last days and we could not go on holiday with guilty feelings leaving her at a kennel. Your services were a perfect match for us. Sporty was so relaxed upon our return and your frequent email updates made us feel we could enjoy our short but much needed holiday with peace of mind knowing she was in your good care. I was especially impressed by your background and knowledge given your credentials. An absolute "godsend" is how I would describe it. All the best in 2014!. " Lynn & Kevin


"We had recently moved from the USA to Canada and usually could take our two dogs Mable and Cuba to a family’s house when we were away. We had never kenneled them before and hated to even think about it, so when we found Gary and Chantelle we were so happy! They are wonderful, kind people who obviously love animals. Knowing this gave me great relief to know the girls would be well cared for in the comfort of our home. They even send pictures daily of them on their walks and updates if needed. That is a special little touch. They both are very professional and i definitely recommend them! I know I can trust and depend on them when needed. Thank you!" The Sims Family


"I dislike telling everyone how wonderful Chantelle and Gary are because I would much rather keep them all to myself! However, it would be selfish of me not to share this with others, who like me, could not bear the fact of kenneling their fur kids.

I found Pawrecious Pets online and have to say, I felt relieved after the first inquiry. Bella loved Chantelle at the first meeting! Chantelle is very professional, knowledgeable and thorough. It was comforting to know that she is a registered RVT and in the event of an emergency, she would know what to do as our Bella has seizures.

Both my pets are back door strays. Bella, the Rotti, is 12 years old and Felix, the cat, is just a normal rambunctious 2 year old. She made me trust that I could go on vacation and my kids would be well taken care of. Daily pics and updates were sent to us and it made our vacation that much more enjoyable!

After returning home, we found our home was exactly as we had left it. Mail was brought in, Garbage was put out and the house was clean! Bella and Felix were healthy and happy! Even though the kids were glad to see us, I detected a bit of disappointment. I think they were expecting Chantelle and Gary!

So, if you have any reservations about using a Pet sitting service, know that you can have total peace of mind with Pawrecious Pets. They are A1 in my books!


"Chantelle at Pawrecious Pets Pet Sitting has been amazing to our two cats and snake over the past two and a half years. She makes us feel at ease about leaving our pets when we go on vacation. Her daily email updates with a message and photo always brings smiles to our faces when we are away. I would highly recommend Chantelle as she has a great passion for her work and really cares about the pets she is looking after. Its unfortunate that we are now moving out of Oakville and Chantelle doesn't cover our new area. We are going to miss you Chantelle! Thank you for everything. We really appreciate you and Gary."

"We recently adopted 2 young kittens and had a 2 week preplanned vacation. Where we would normally have friends and family look in on our pets we felt that these two were too young to be left alone without a few daily visits. Chantelle was able to provide us with a feeling of comfort that the kittens were well taken care of. Because of her experience and training as a RVT we knew that her daily updates would include any observations regarding concerns with their well being or behaviour. As an added bonus she provided house minding services as well. We came home from our two weeks to happy kittens and will be calling Chantelle again for our next trip. Thank you Pawrecious Pets!"

"I had a vacation booked for a week in Cuba with the entire family in Jan 2016. Normally, my parents watch my 2 cats, but since they were coming I had to find someone else. I found Pawrecious Pets online and I was relieved when I met Chantelle. I did not worry about my girls at all while on vacation. Chantelle sent me emails and pics everyday which kept my mind at ease. I came home to happy girls! I definitely recommend Pawrecious Pets and will be using them for every trip! Thank you for everything! :)"

"It is with great piece of mind that we are able to entrust our beloved cats to the reliable and conscientious care of Chantelle and Gary at Pawrecious Pets-Pet Sitting. Our three cats are able to remain safe and secure in their own home while avoiding the stress and unfamiliarity of being transferred to a kennel during our absence. The daily updates and pictures provide a wonderful connection and reassurance that our pets are being well looked after. Without hesitation, we recommend the personable and professional services that Chantelle and Gary provide. It is a pleasure dealing with them and we will certainly entrust our “fur gang” to Pawrecious Pets any time we need to be away."

"When our 11 year old dog Riley developed diabetes 4 years ago we were worried that we would be unable to find suitable dog sitting for him. We were very fortunate to find Chantelle, Gary and Pawrecious Pets. As a registered vet technician, Chantelle was more than capable of looking after Riley and administering his twice daily insulin injections. As Riley aged and required more medications and more attention we were even more grateful to have Chantelle and Gary look after him. Beyond the excellent care she provided for Riley, we really appreciated Chantelle's great attitude, her flexibility when our plans frequently changed and her respect for our home."

"We have been using Chantelle and Gary of Pawrecious Pets for several years now and they have taken away all the stress of leaving our precious cats at home when we go on vacation. It is a great comfort to know that while we are away our cats are being cared for by such professional people. We have no hesitation in recommending Chantelle and Gary to look after your pets. We also love getting the daily photos of our boys."
