Boarded our Sheltie with Mike and Cindy for a total of five weeks over five separate instances. Fantastic service. Our girl is part of our family and consequently, we could not consider a large impersonal dog and noisy kennel. Quality, family-based care in a smaller well managed, secure home made leaving Kalli for vacations possible. Duckies was the answer.
Mike and Cindy looked after our place over a lengthy period of time, and always went above and beyond to make sure that we had peace of mind while away. They dealt with two potential emergency situations as well as all the day to day issues that come up with a property, with prompt service as well as a full recounting of all details. I always felt as if I had a friend looking after things for us, and I had no need to worry - I recommend them most highly!
Cindy met our two Rhodesians when they were just puppies. She gives them a good, long walk once a week to give me a break. They always look forward to seeing her. I trust her completely with my dogs - who can easily overwhelm someone inexperienced. When you first meet Cindy, you know right away, that she has a deep love and respect for canines.
Having to commute to Woodstock on a daily basis for over a year, I can't tell you how reassuring it was to know that Dude, my 100 lbs lab had Cindy to look after him. She is very caring and loving towards Dude and my 3 cats. I knew that I could always depend on Cindy, even when Dude didn't want to go outside in a rainstorm, she would sit with him and keep him company & comfortable. It was also great to know what had transpired each day with the daily log they provided. I have nothing but the highest praise for Duckie Enterprises and would recommend using them to love and care for your animals when you can't.
Duckie Enterprises has been taking care of my cats for 2 years now and they're marvelous. It's a real piece of mind to know that while I'm away not only are my cats being cared for, but my mail is collected, plants watered and that the house is being monitored on a regular basis. Mike & Cindy are very consciencious! Unfortunately one of my girls hid on them for 2 days and they were good enough to call while I was out of the country to express (& share) their concern. All was OK but again, I know that my home is safe in their hands while I'm away. Duckie keeps excellent records and I especially love the internet options for payments and communications. Thank you Duckie!
Cindy started walking my dogs in May 2011. When I first met her, I was seriously considering giving up my two dogs. I had just started a new job and when I came home, I was faced with such a mess! After one day of Cindy walking the dogs,it was such a joy to come home.....no mess! Cindy walks my dogs 3 to 5 days a week. There's been a dramatic difference for the better since she came into our lives. I have boarded them with her a few times as well. Cindy & Mike are awesome!!
Cindy & Mike First, we can’t thank you enough for the exceptional care & service you provided to our pets while we were away. No one ever anticipates that an emergency situation could arise while leaving a pet, so of course, we were concerned to hear that Corky had suffered a sudden and sever allergic reaction. to something. However, not only were we extremely impressed by your professionalism, compassion, and dedication by keeping us informed and ensuring Corky had the best possible care.
Cindy and Mike have been taking care of our little schnauzer Rudy since he was just a puppy. They have been so wonderful, taking him for walks when my husband & I have long days at work and can't get home to take him out. They are very trustworthy, and always treated Rudy like their own. They even made us a video once of him walking which was so thoughtful. They continued walking Rudy this past year even though he was their only dog in Burlington b/c they loved him so much. We understand that they now need to just stick to Hamilton and Ancaster, but we will miss them very much as will Rudy. Thanks for being so great!
We've used Duckie for over 6 months. Our 90lb lab, Tag, loves going for walks with Cindy, who is awesome with Tag. Mike and Cindy are very professional and flexible to meet our ever-changing schedule. By far the most reliable and responsible dog walkers in the region.
I have been using Duckie since they started and am always impressed with their service! It is good to know that my pets (2 cats and a dog) are well looked after, when I can't be there myself. You will be impressed with how professional this service is!

First, we can't thank you enough for the exceptional care & service you provided to our pets while we were away. no one ever anticipates than an emergency situation could arise while leaving a pet, so of course, we were concerned to hear that Corky had suffered a sudden and severe allergic reaction to something.
However, not only were we extremely impressed by your professionalism, compassion, and dedication by keeping us informed and ensuring Corky had the best possible care available, but we were also relieved to know that you were better equipped to deal with the situation than we ever could - given your first aid qualifications and expertise. You went above and beyond the call of duty in caring for our pooch and making sure he wasn't alone while he recuperated, and for that we are extremely grateful.
We did a lot of online research prior to hiring a pet sitter, and the testimonials we read for Duckie Enterprise were second to none. With first hand experience, now we know why. No one ever wants to test their pet sitter this way - especially the first time using the service! But if ever there was a reason to ensure hiring qualified professionals to look after a pet, we sure received the benefit of it. thank you for being so wonderful - not only for our pets, but also for our peace of mind. We're so glad we found you, you've now got customers for life!
