We've been with Dogtown walkers for about 2 years now and have been really happy with the services. Bailey, our 2.5 year old Shih-poo is very social and loves spending the afternoon with his friends while we're at work. Brendan treats all the dogs like family, and often spends more than the minimum amount of time at the park (especially in good weather). Bailey always comes home tired and happy!"
From the time Bruce was 8 weeks old Brendan and Judy have been a part of his life. Their enthusiasm and love for what they do show everyday. Brendan was always very considerate letting us know in advance if there was going to be any interruptions so we could schedule accordingly. We are moving now after 4 years with Brendan and Judy and wish we could take them with us. The private park and the people make them stand out in Toronto.

Dogtown walked our little golden doodle for 4 years and they were absolutely fabulous! I always knew our Willow was in excellent hands no matter what. Brendan LOVES dogs and they adore him. He knows how to exercise them and stimulate them, keeping their brains active and engaged. Willow would always come home exhausted and a tired puppy is a happy owner.
We also boarded Willow with them on many occasions knowing that she would be taken care of completely. Because they are so attentive of their dogs they often guided us in ways to be better owners and for that we were very appreciative. We have moved out of the city and my only regret of the move is that Willow won’t be able to play with her pack every day. But we will stay in touch for sure. I will recommend Dogtown to anyone looking for a dog walker they can depend on!
Its hard to put into words how much we appreciate the guidance and help that dogtown Inc has provided us, especially as first time dog owners.
When we first got chewy as a puppy we looked everywhere to find a person to take care of him while we were at work. We came across dogtown Inc online and it has been the best thing that has happened for us and chewy. Brendan and judy go over and beyond in taking care of chewy. Every morning chewy anticipates their arrival, either patiently waiting by the door or looking out the window. If chewy could talk I bet he would talk about all his friends and the fun times he has at dogtown Inc.
Finding Brendan and judy was more than we could have asked for!
"Our dog Zuko absolutely loves Dogtown! And his love does not come easy. Zuko is weary of strangers and often takes a long time to bond with new people. By the 2nd outing with Brendan, Zuko was smitten! I've caught him staring out the window waiting for Brendan on several occasions even when we are at home!
When Zuko has been off sick due to surgery on his paw, they missed him so much, they even popped by to visit and bring him some home baked goods to make him feel better.
Being a dog care professional myself, and having a 150 pound dog with "issues", I was not very confident that I could find someone that I could trust, let alone someone that could handle a beast like ours. After meeting with several dog walkers, we decided to take a chance on Dogtown. They have proven themselves to be extremely dedicated to my dog and very attentive to his needs."
"Brendan is always there on time, he's dependable and totally nuts about the dogs. My little guy can't wait for him to show up."
"Our Great Dane, Sirius, absolutely LOVES Brendan. We have two small children who demand most of our time and Brendan always makes sure that Sirius is well taken care of and exhausted. Every time he comes home he disappears for at least a few hours to recuperate. And, its not just exercise that Brendan provides for Sirius – he provides the patience and fun-affection that our dog craves thus making sure that Sirius feels loved despite the arrival of demanding new family members over the past few years.
There are constant challenges with small children (most of them sleep related) and I know I can always count on Brendan to take care of our eldest “child” when I’m just too tired. I even have to admit that sometimes Sirius doesn’t seem to want to come back home after his action-packed overnights with Dogtown Inc. We have had such a fantastic experience with Brendan – we recommend him to everyone!"
"From the moment our dog, Gus, met Brendan, we knew it was a good fit. We had met with other walkers, but once we saw how Gus reacted to Brendan, our search was over.
Gus is always excited to see Brendan and comes home tired after every walk. Gus' time with Dogtown has really assisted us in his training and his socialization more generally. If we ever have a training-related question, Brendan is our first stop. He is very knowledgeable and gives really helpful advice.
We have heard from friends who have seen Brendan on the job that he is amazing at what he does - never standing still watching his dogs, but always interacting with them. Brendan truly loves what he does and it shows. Whenever we see him, he always has stories about Gus and what he and his friends have been up to that day.
Dogtown has been wonderful in accommodating our ever-changing schedules and is always ready to take care of Gus if we're not able to make it home on time. Even though the walks are officially one hour long, Brendan sometimes takes the dogs to the beach where they spend the better part of the afternoon.
We would recommend Dogtown to anyone who is looking for a reliable, friendly and experienced dog-walking service."
"Brendan and Dogtown have been amazing for our dog Murphy!
Murphy is a rescue dog and came with many challenges. When we found Brendan we didn't know what more we could do to help Murphy be less fearful of the world.
Thanks to Brendan, Murphy is a changed dog. Brendan has worked with Murphy to build his confidence, help him socialize with other dogs and become a happy playful animal.
Brendan works hard to find solutions to a dog's issues. And he doesn't give up until he and the dog have solved the problem.
Brendan has also been great at helping us - both life long dog owners - to better understand Murphy and how to handle him.
Whenever Murphy stays with Brendan (and Judy) he comes back in great spirits and we know he had as good a vacation as we did!
We would highly recommend Dogtown to anyone but particularly if you need some extra support in managing a challenging dog."

We are so happy with Dogtown. Brendan is a kind and caring dog owner and walker. He is very enthusiastic with our dog Treble. I know that when he takes her for a walk it's more like workout! They go to various dog haunts in the city for a fully engaged dogfest everyday. Treble is a very energized dog. Brendan knows this a gives her lots of attention and ball time. She adores him!... as a result so do we!!! 2 thumbs and 4 paws up for Brendan and "Dogtown"!
It's been over a year now since Benny has been with Dogtown Inc. He's such a happy, well adjusted dog who socializes well with other dogs. It's hours of activity for Benny and I can tell he really looks forward to it. Brendan is so good with him and they've formed a great relationship. I'm thankful we found Dogtown Inc., it works nicely for us knowing that our dog, who we love like our own son, is in good hands and is well taken care of when we can't be there for him...not to mention all the new friends he's made.

As a family, we would like to express our thanks for the quality of walks our dog Zola gets. She always returns exhausted and content, tongue hanging and tail wagging. We can see by the smile on Brendan's face when he arrives how much he cares for and loves each of the dogs he walks. Zola loves him back too! She gets to spend hours a day with her friends, getting exercise. We love the dedication that Brendan puts into his work. Cavanagh Family
Want to let you know how great it has been since I met you in the park with Charley. Charley has had so much fun with you and all your dogs and has made life so much easier for me during the day time while working. To know that Charley is a happy little camper boarding with you while we are traveling is wonderful. Truely - the BEST!!!I can't imagine any dog not being happy. Brendan and Judy are very warm loving dog lovers and to me that is sooo important. So needless to say the Segsworth family could not ask for anything more.. Happy walking!!
"We had the pleasure of meeting Brendan in person at our home during a consultation when we were searching for a dog walker for our very playful and very energetic husky. The importance of Brendan meeting in person allowed us to feel comfortable to have our dog in his care. From day 1 he proved to be reliable, friendly and professional and genuinely cared for our dog's well being. Every day we came home to a happy, but very tired out husky (not an easy feat), what more could you ask for?
We would recommend Brendan and Dogtown's services for anyone seeking some
extra exercise for their own pup."
Again, thank you for the great service!
