Murphy’s Paw

Hello, and welcome to my Pet24Care profile! My name is Roni, and I am part-owner of Murphy’s Paw Pet Care Services. Allow me to introduce myself:

I’ve grown up in a cat friendly home for the majority of my life, but was always too busy to commit to being a dog owner. My cats have always been my family, and it hurts my heart that I have not yet owned a dog. But have no fear, I’m no stranger to dogs. I spent four years working with a security company that employs and utilizes K9’s. My K9 partner and I spent 12+ hours a day working side by side, day in and day out. We focused on her obedience (and attended regular training sessions), but also found plenty of time to play and cuddle.

My current home life includes five cats. Yes, you read that right, FIVE! It started when I adopted a stray (Kiko). I then realized she needed a friend to keep her company. But one friend became two when I adopted a mother (Ozzy), daughter (Tamara) duo. When I first met my boyfriend, Justin, he owned one cat (Cheddar), but quickly adopted a second (Max) from his family farm. We eventually moved in together, and boom, five cats. It may have taken a while, but they all tend to get along for the most part.

Justin and I (along with our army of cats) currently live in a three-story duplex with a front attached garage, and a rear deck catio. We live less than one minutes drive from the nearest vet. We also live within a five minute drive of an extremely large dog park on the south side of Fort Saskatchewan.

We have recently taken in a friends dog, Geo. She has issues with resource guarding, so all food, treats, and toys will be given separately to avoid any accidents.

Next, what can I offer you:
I offer daycare and boarding services to cats and dogs of all sizes, ages, breeds, and abilities. It would be best if your fur baby is good with other animals, but they can be separated if necessary. Please ensure that you provide all foods and medications, as well as instructions (amounts, times, etc). Since I will treat your pets like family, they will be allowed on my furniture, so please specify if this is something that you don’t want due to training purposes.

What you can expect will be catered to your specific dog. Let me know how often they need bathroom breaks, and whether they have a way of telling you they need to go. Let me know how far they tend to walk in a day. I can easily accommodate 5-30km per day. Maybe your dog likes to go to the dog park. Just let me know if they have any troubles socializing.

Daycare services start at $25/full day, and boarding services start at $35/night. Additional cost for extra animals, puppies/kittens, and holidays.

I offer house-sitting services. Again, please provide any and all instructions, restrictions, and expectations for your pets. House sitting services start at $45/night. Additional costs for extra animals, puppies/kittens, and holidays.

I also offer home visits and walking services for all fur babies. Does your dog roam freely while on leash? Or are you training them to heal at all times? Just let me know how you would like them to be handled. I can also offer paired walks. Just ask me to bring Geo.
*I also offer collar and leash training. Most clients notice a difference within the first 5 sessions!!

Walks and home visits start at $20 for 30 minutes. Additional cost for training, extra time, extra animals, puppies/kittens, and holidays.

Justin helps out with most of my clients pets, so please don’t be surprised if you see him. Ashley - my business partner - lives in Leduc, so clients make be exchanged based on location.

Shoot me a message. I can’t wait to meet your little angel(s).
