who we are

I’m Ron and this is Thatcher, my Standard Schnauzer pup. Ever since Thatcher joined our family at eight weeks of age, she has had the good fortune to join the other members of the pack on our daily group walks. She has learned many skills from them such as how to jump in a lake and learn to swim real fast and generally how to have a ball! One thing she has taught me is how important it is for dogs to socialize with other dogs.

Why Us?

Ron and Thatcher are life-long residents of the Bloor West Village/Swansea area. We are Pet First Aid Certified, Registered, Licensed and Insured. Ruff and Ready offers dog walking, home visits, pet sitting, house sitting and pet taxi services.
