YOU WORK. WE PLAY.
City life can be pretty hectic. Sometimes, we get so busy working, our best friends don't get as much time to play. That's where we come in.
Based in Toronto, we offer group walks of up to 6 dogs at a time. We'll pick them up, spend the day in Toronto's many off-leash and unfenced areas so they can have a good run, and drop them off for you. Which means that when you get home, you'll know your best friend has already gotten some of the exercise they need for the day.
A DOG WALKING SERVICE THAT FITS YOUR LIFESTYLE.
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME
Barks & Rec. was founded by Jem Izzard, a dog walking professional with a total of over 15 years experience handling and caring for pets.
FULLY INSURED AND BONDED, AND LICENSED BY THE CITY OF TORONTO.
I promise only the best care for your pups.
We'll work with you to create the perfect routine just for your dog.
Our East York location, servicing East York and the Beaches, we'll pick up your dog and spend the day in any of Toronto's off-leash and fenced-in dog parks.
One day it may be in the woods. The next, we might be at Kew Beach. Whatever best fits your dog's routine and needs.

WHERE WE ROMP
MEET THE PACK
Our pack is a diverse group of ages and breeds. But just like humans, sometimes new dogs might not get along with everyone. Especially if they're a little young. That's why we'll meet with you and your pup before we let them join us on our daily romps, just to make sure everyone will get along.
Unlike many other dog walkers in Toronto, our vehicles are chosen specifically with your pet's comfort in mind. Our vans are large, open and air-conditioned, so whether your pet is the tiniest Chihuahua or the greatest of Great Danes, they'll always have lots of room to stretch their legs.
BIG VANS, BIG DIFFERENCE
Our rates start at $20/hr. We will work with you to create a custom schedule that fits your needs, whether it's every day, part-time, or even just a visit now and then.
We at Barks & Rec. are bonded, insured and licensed by the City of Toronto. We are pet 1st aid certified and have excellent relationships with neighbourhood vets, just in case.
We're also covered by CAA.
PEACE OF MIND
Once you put your pet in our care, you'll get the added security of knowing that you can reach us at any time. Just send us a text and we will respond as soon as we can, usually right away.
It feels like the least we can do to say thank you for choosing us.
