about-picHello and Welcome to Paw Patrol Dog Walking and Pet Services!

My name is Leanne Joanisse and I am the proud owner of Paw Patrol Dog Walking and Pet Services. I have been an animal lover and pet owner all my life. I currently share my home with my husband Pierre and Bones, a 12-year-old male German Shepherd-Golden Lab, adopted from the SPCA, and Candy Cane, a 12-year-old tabby cat, also a former stray. I am also a dedicated volunteer at the Hamilton-Burlington SPCA.

logos-binks-firstaid1Before opening Paw Patrol, I was a sociology professor at McMaster University for ten years, where I was among the first sociologists in Canada to teach a course on Animals and Society. As much as I enjoyed being a professor, something was missing in my life and I decided to make a career change. Owning and operating Paw Patrol has been a dream come true, and I can honestly say I enjoy every single moment I spend with my furry and feathered friends. logos-binks-firstaidI am deeply passionate about animals’ well being and strongly committed to providing them with the best care possible, as evidenced by my continuing education courses with Cheryl Orletsky, the Dog Guru. I am insured and bonded through Binks Insurance and certified in Pet First Aid and CPR through St. John Ambulance. My service areas include  Hamilton and Ancaster. It would be an honour for me to look after your pet and I welcome you to contact me by telephone at 905-320-1339 or by e-mail at leanne@pawpatrolpetservices.ca. Thank you for visiting this website!
