About Us


About Sandy

Kanata Dog Walking’s CEO (Canine Exercise Optimizer) Sandy has enjoyed the companionship of dogs all his life. After initiating a soul nurturing career change in 2013 he turned his focus towards his love of dogs, exercise in the great outdoors, and helping others. With his Senior Business Advisor (wife!) Katie by his side Sandy started Kanata Dog Walking and the couple has watched their business grow ever since.

Sandy and Katie live in the heart of Kanata (Katimavik) with their two sons Charlie and Tim. When the family isn’t out exploring the city’s great network of trails, they spend much of their time visiting loved ones, reading books, sipping tea, and playing music.


In 2016 Kanata Dog Walking was featured in a short video documentary by Schmoofypoof Creative. We’ve included it below so you can get to know Sandy and some of our furry friends.

About the Team

As the business grew it became clear to Sandy that he needed to add more dog walkers to the team. Having a team has allowed us to ensure our clients’ needs are being met, even when one of us is sick or away. Our current roster includes the esteemed David Ritz, the honourable Kim Flood, the magnificent Tracy Beardsley, the venerated Erika Radack, and the sensational Michelle Comber, each of whom was invited to join our team because he or she demonstrated a profound love for dogs combined with experience and an exceptionally kind and caring personality. Most clients are assigned a primary dog walker and a secondary dog walker and all clients are given the opportunity to meet their dog walker(s) before getting started.

For more information or to set up a free meet-and-greet consultation please contact Sandy.
