about us

Hi, my name is Megan Lowndes and I am the owner and operator of Pup Club, LLC. Pup Club stands for honesty and safety combined with fun and happiness for your pets. I've had dogs in my family from Rottweiler to Pug and feel completely comfortable with pups of all shapes, sizes, and temperaments. I want to use the things I've learned and the volunteering opportunities I have had (and still do!) to thrive in all aspects of life and to do so with kindness and with transparency about the business that I run.

I am glad to be able to offer these current services and continue to educate myself constantly on different aspects of pet care as well as new findings. I currently offer 20-, 30-, & 60-minute dog walks, pet visits, pet sitting, & pet taxi. Of course, if you're in need of any other pet related services, I can do my best to accommodate you and your best friend. I'm confident in my ability to help you feel as comfortable as possible leaving your pet in my care, whether it be for 20-minutes or for the duration of your vacation.

Our Services

 

meet & greet

Our initial face-to-face meet & greet is free and something I like to arrange with every new client and their pet. This gives us the opportunity to discuss your requirements and answer any questions that you may have. At this time I'll also take the opportunity to learn where your pet's food, treats, medicine (if applicable), and favorite things are around and outside of your home. We'll take a short, leashed dog walk together and I'll find out your pet's schedule and needs. During the meet & greet, I'll also have you fill out some short paperwork to gather information on your pet, discuss emergency procedures, collect a house key, and we will sign a brief contract.


Dog Walking

I offer 20-, 30-, & 60-minute walks. I'll pick up your dog from your home and take him/her on a leashed walk around the neighborhood. If you have any preferences for your dog such as playing ball in the yard or visiting the neighborhood bark park, that can be arranged with no problem. 


Daily Pet check-in/visit

I offer 30- & 60-minute pet check-ins. A check-in is great for any pet that may be home alone for an extended period of time during the day or if you feel that hourly or overnight sitting isn't necessary. This is also great for puppies and our senior citizens who may need more attention during times alone. Pet check-ins include feeding, fresh water, and a potty break or walk. Additional services such as alternating lights and blinds or watering plants can be provided as well. You just let me know what you need to take care of you and your pet.

 

Overnight Pet sitting

Allow your pet the luxury of overnight pet sitting in the comfort of your own home. You can relax knowing that your pet and home are being kept safe. Your pet can relax in familiar surroundings and get to stay in their favorite spots. This also allows your pet to stay on routine. Overnight sitting includes breakfast and dinner as well as walks at breakfast and dinner time. If your pet is usually served lunch or takes midday potty breaks, don't worry because midday check-in options are available. Your pet will get walks, playtime, massage, and brushing. Plus they get to sleep wherever they're used to. We provide dog sitting, cat sitting, small animal sitting, farm animal sitting, and bird sitting.
 

hourly PEt sitting (minimum of four hours)

Hourly pet sitting is great for pets who don't do well alone or need extra attention. If you'll be gone during the day or at night and think a pet check-in won't be enough, opt for hourly pet sitting. Just like on a check-in, we will make sure your pet gets their scheduled meal, fresh water, potty breaks, and/or a walk. Again, a great service for puppy sitting or senior dogs.


pet taxi

Our safe and secure pet taxi is a 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback with high powered air conditioning! We offer two types of pet taxi trips: hourly, for trips such as vet visits which we attend with your pet and pick-up and drop-offs which are great for groomer visits or just going from point A to point B. Our pet taxi services include a pet seat belt. Services begin at the time of pick-up and end at the time of drop-off

The APP

 
 

Scheduling with me via the scout app

Customers are always welcome to book the traditional way but if you prefer a more hands-on approach, Pup Club is now using the Scout app. The Scout app is a platform that allows customers to book their own appointments, upload information about their pet, receive invoices, make payments, and provides GPS for walks, plus a report card. It's extremely user friendly! It's available for both iOS and Android.

 

 
 
 
 

customer testimonials

     Golda & her mom, marcia

"We have been using pet care services for our pug for 12 years. Since we moved, we used Megan and boarded our dog in her home because it was just easier to do this.  Golda adapted quite well and, in spite of her age, she walked up and down the stairs which she doesn't do in our home. Finally, when my husband came to pick her up she looked at him and went back to sleep. This tells us she was very comfortable and we will use Megan again."
- Marcia - Rosedale
