The Summer Woofstock Experience

In June 2012, Loving Paws & House Sitting was delighted to attend its first business trip to Summer Woofstock in Toronto, Ontario, the largest dog festival in North America.  We were so excited to be a part of such a large and diverse event, which boasts over 300,000 dog lovers and their four-footed furry friends.

We attended the event in an effort to spread the word about our expansion to the Mississauga area this year, and in doing so, we were overwhelmed with such positive responses from residents from Mississauga, Toronto and surrounding areas.  

Loving Paws & House Sitting was proud to be the only vendor participating in the event which offered in-your-home pet care services as the primary service offered.  Many of the animal lovers we met were unaware that this service existed, and were also pleased with the convenience of being able to leave their pets at home in their familiar environment while working long hours or on vacation.

The pet parents we met were also delighted to hear that this service had been established in Ottawa for 7 years and earned a reputation as the region’s most trusted and called upon pet and house sitting service.  For them, knowing that this type of service exists on such a professional level, with detailed policies and procedures in place, guaranteed visit durations, and with the pet sitting industry’s longest list of Quality Assurance & Standards of Excellence commitments, would give them peace of mind.

We were also very pleased to make great connections with other businesses in the area, from dog trainers to vet hospitals, pet stores, and pet photographers, just to name a few.  Many of these businesses approached us directly, expressed how needed our service was, and requested our brochures.

The positive conversations and feedback that we had with pet parents as well as other vendors/businesses led us to feel that there was a strong demand for this service not only in Mississauga, but in Toronto, as well, and participating in the event led LP&HS to also begin expanding to the GTA in addition to Mississauga.

We hope to have some wonderful new team members join our heartfelt team in the months to come, and are looking forward to attending the next Woofstock and other pet events in the GTA and Mississauga, and to continuing to meet more animal lovers and their pets!
