Welcome to MyUrbanDog

Your Pets are in Good Hands

I’m Carrie, the Owner/Operator of My Urban Dog.
My love for animals started early.

Call us now!


My first job was at a pet store, which nurtured my love of animals and helped focus my college endevours. I majored in biology with a zoology minor with a goal of becoming a veterinary professional. I acquired a veterinary technician position at ottawa animal hospital, whose stellar four year AAHA (american animal hospital association) certification offered me unlimited opportunity to learn every aspect of quality veterinary care. There I also developed the gift of seeing our animal friends as they truly are, knowing and understanding their behaviors and how to nurture and care for the incredible bonds we form with them. I became one of the head surgical techs, which further advanced my skills in the field and showed me that I am at my best when caring for animals everyday.

So now, as an animal care specialist, I offer my services to you and your family. I am privileged and honored to share my knowledge and past experience to help foster the precious bond you share with your special friend.

What We Do


Dog Walking

We all appreciate that a well socialized and properly exercised dog is a good dog. at my urban dog, we believe that socialization is an ongoing, lifelong practice that maintains the emotional well being of your wonderful friend. the urban dog offers a comprehensive dog walking service that reinforces excellent canine behavior. our walking schedule is tailored to best fit your work schedule and to provide mental and physical stimulation for your dog. these walks are 20-30 minutes catered to your dog’s exercise needs and may also include park visits if desired. fresh water and a quick home check are included at every visit. call today to find out about our competitive rates.


My urban dog offers a top quality in-home boarding service for your canine friend while you travel. my urban dog is not a boarding kennel, but rather a doggie “club med”. park and beach visits, long walks, and friday night movies on the couch are just some of our standard boarding activities.** while your dog enjoys the stay, he or she will be cared for like part of the family as we cater to each individual’s unique schedule. and for your ease, we offer six years of experience as an aaha veterinarytechnician as well as 24-hour access to quality veterinary counsel. boarding prices range from $45 to $50 per day; pick up and drop off may be available for your convenience; and first and last days are prorated.

If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and man.
