Your Paws Companion

over 50, 30+ yrs Law Clerk - early retired

I retired early after many years in the legal field (Civil, Family, Estate Law, and other aspects) both in Ontario and in British Columbia with Legal Aid. Sold my house in June 2022 and want to explore the world now that my children are grown. I have been on pet/house sitting assignments full-time (90%) since July 2022 in Ontario, Quebec, and British Columbia - little dogs, big dogs, senior dogs, cats etc.. I also cared for a deaf dog for 4 months which required a certain awareness and communication with her.
I am very outdoorsy, love hiking and cycling, having backpacked/camped solo - went backpacking in Ecuador, travelled across Canada both ways - with the exception of Newfoundland (on the bucket list!).
One of my passions is gardening. I enjoy the spring surprises as life begins in the garden whether it be flowers or food to enjoy at the table.
We have always had animals in the house whether as a kid growing up or in my married family life and have been very fortunate that our animals have always had a 'good and long life" and enjoyed their friendship and snuggles. - exercising with daily walks - come rain or shine!
While pet sitting, I like to always stay in touch with the owners, sending photos and videos or direct messages ensuring them their pets are happy and well cared for, and their home is secure.
Fully vaccinated - non-smoker.

Rosemary is amazing. Our dog is missing her! She took him for many walks and he slept on her bed. Rosemary sent us many videos and updates while we were away. The house was spotless when we returned. Her communications with us were superb. We want her back for any of our future trips! Thank you Rosemary for taking such good care of Louie!
BARBARA ( Ontario, Mar 2024 - 3 weeks)
I cannot give Rosemary enough Stars for care of my fur babies and home. I left my home as clean as I could for her, and came home to an even cleaner home. Not only do I know how well cared for my dog and cats were, by their happy dispositions upon return, as well as her communications and videos and pictures while I was away, and her ability to help my dog maintain his composure when someone was at the door (I'll need lessons on this one!) But also, that she washed all the bedding so I had a ... MORE
ROSALIE ( Ontario, Feb 2024 - 1 week 3 nights)
Additionally, I was so thankful of the warm weather with Fluff on his adventures at night. Rosalie left detailed instructions and emergency contact info and we communicated throughout my stay by me sending lots of pictures and videos of the pets while she was away. I truly enjoyed this sit and ... MORE
Rosemary did a wonderful job looking after our kitty. We came home to find everything at the house in great shape and our senior cat very happy and content. I received lots of pictures of Jazzy while we were away. Having Rosemary look after Jazzy was a great experience and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her or to use her again. Thanks Rosemary for everything!
LEANNE ( Ontario, Nov 2023 - 1 week 4 nights)
Rosemary is a blessing. We so appreciated having her house sit for us, and care for our senior cat Kifera. Her communication, updating us while we were away, allowed us to feel assured that our home and furry family were in good hands.
LINDA ( Ontario, Aug 2023 - 5 nights)
Rosemary was very communicative and took good care of the house. The cats and plants were very healthy when I got back and she left the house clean and tidy.
SAMUEL ( Quebec, Jul 2023 - 4 weeks)
Rosemary provided amazing care for our two dogs as well as showing amazing flexibility during a sit that didn't go as planned. When we had to return 4 days into a trip that was supposed to be 3 weeks long, Rosemary was adaptable and continued to offer the perfect amount of help while our time overlapped. We had the opportunity to get to know each other and would gratefully welcome Rosemary again should the plans align. Sheila and Philip
PHILIP ( British Columbia, May 2023 - 2 weeks 6 days)
Rosemary took excellent care of our home and our elderly dog, during our extended trip to Europe. She frequently sent us photos of Taffy out on their walks together, and kept us reassured that all was well at home.
BETH ( Ontario, Dec 2022 - 4 1/2 months)
Rosemary took great care of our 13-year old husky Blazer. We were away for 5 weeks and Rosemary was an absolute pleasure to deal with. The regular communication was terrific (texts and videos) and our dog (and our house) were extremely well looked after. I am certain that our dog misses Rosemary now that she has left. We had no concerns the entire time that we were away and Rosemary even accommodated our last minute scheduling change. We would highly recommend Rosemary - very trustworthy ... MORE
NEIL ( Ontario, Oct 2022 - 1 month 1 weeks)
Rosemary was a great house and pet sitter for our cat and dog. She sent regular photos and videos and we could see that the dog was getting good walks. The house was clean and tidy when we returned home. Rosemary was reliable and friendly - highly recommend trusting her with your home and pets!
ANITA ( Ontario, Oct 2022 - 7 days)
Rosemary did a wonderful job of looking after Freo (our dog), our house and our plants. She took Freo on all kinds of adventures and he seemed to really enjoy his time with her. She was so good at communicating with us about any concerns that she had. She sent us wonderful photos and videos of her adventures with Freo which was so great. Freo looked so happy and content. We didn't worry about anything with Freo or the house as we trusted that Rosemary would do whatever was necessary to deal ... MORE
TRISH (Elora, N0B 1S0 Ontario, Sep 2022 - 1 month 2 week)
Rosemary was brilliant, took great care of the house and the creatures. She loved them up and they loved her right back. She sent the photos and videos of their walks - including the cat following along as she was walking the dog around the neighbourhood, to the delightof the neighbours. I have recommended her to family members and would happily have her come to housesit again.
