How We’re Different

The Sophisticated Dog aims to be different than the average pet care service.  We do everything you’d expect from a professional dog walking service—and more!  We are also committed to ensuring you that our services are the highest level of quality and professionalism.

The Sophisticated Dog offers personalized canine care services to Sarnia and the surrounding area. Need someone to stop by during the day to let your furry friend out for a quick potty break?  We do that. Does your dog need a walk while you are at work or away?  We do that too!  Or perhaps you would like some help teaching your pup proper leash manners? We can help!

We specialize in both regular and occasional dog walking schedules, and also offer walks on an emergency/short notice bases.  Whatever your need is, we can do it!  Some services, such as pet sitting and dog boarding in our home, are only available to our established clients. We also offer private dog training/consulting.
