With 12 years of professional pet care experience, hundreds of happy clients and over 37,000 visits to date, it's safe to say we have a passion for pets and more importantly, we LOVE what we do!

Our Bernese mountain dog (the biggest lap dog you'll ever meet) and our Golden Retriever are best buddies with our two rescue cats.

We love fresh air, playful walks, and meeting new furry friends.

what We're known for:

When I say "East coast" I mean it! Born and raised in Newfoundland, studied Pre-Veterinary Medicine in Nova Scotia, and spent a couple of years in New Brunswick between the two.

I followed a job placement to KW where I met a wonderful man and fell in love. The rest, as they say, is history!

We now have two kids, two dogs, and two rescue cats.

I'm an East coast girl with big city sensibilities. Honesty, integrity and compassion are a requirement in this business and we holdfast to them.

booking information

Deanna has taken phenomenal care of our pets for over 7 years, and we trust her implicitly for their well-being. We couldn’t be happier with Walkin’ Paws professionalism, flexibility, and proficiency to expertly manage our energetic and enthusiastic dog.

"Mocca gets so excited she shivers when Deanna comes to walk her!"


kind words

So happy to have found Deanna and her pet-sitting business. Now that we have Deanna looking in on them it is less stressful for my elderly cats to stay in their home and be spoiled and loved on. Deanna  is more than accommodating when they need medications too. I really don’t know what we would do without her. You’re the best Deanna!

I always felt guilty leaving my cats for days but not anymore!


kind words

"Walkin' Paws has cared for Chestnut often over the last 3 years.

Deanna arrives when scheduled and not only takes Chestnut for walks but does her insulin shots as well, changes her water and gives her some cuddle time.

We highly recommend Deanna and her Walkin’ Paw service.
