Taylor Norman has been my dog walker for well over a year. She came to my rescue shortly after my mother died and I took on the care of her dog. Since I worked full-time outside of town, I needed someone to check on my pup and take him for a walk half way through my work day. This gave me incredible peace of mind and gave my little guy something and someone to look forward to during my work days.
I'm also grateful to Taylor for always being flexible and accommodating. As well as checking to see if I left my stove on (lol)
I also especially love her daily pictures of my pup and her GPS tracking!

"We adopted a rescue dog a few months ago and we are so fortunate to have found Taylor. She is absolutely amazing with our dog Jodi and she treats her as if she were her own. Jodi is not very good with other dogs and strange noises and Taylor is so patient and understanding. Taylor is professional, trustworthy, responsive and flexible and a true pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend Taylor to anyone who is considering her services. "

I am pleased to write this letter of recommendation for Westbound Hound Dog Walking. Taylor has been taking care of our two small dogs for the past year and we could not ask for a better dog walker! I am a shift worker and she has always been so accommodating with my fluctuating schedule. Anytime we have needed to make a change or add an extra visit, Taylor has been quick to respond to our request and goes out of her way to make it work. One of our dogs is a bit of a challenge in terms of her behaviour but this was never an issue. I loved receiving daily photos of our pups and seeing them so happy. It gave us piece of mind to know that our fur friends were in the best of hands while we were out. I cannot recommend Taylor and her company enough!

"When our previous dog walker was moving, we were worried that we would not find someone as reliable and accommodating. Then we were introduced to Taylor. As our dog is quite unique and needy we were not sure how he would handle someone new.
We met Taylor and instantly thought she would be a great fit for us. We felt comfortable with her and how she runs her business and most importantly her love and respect for our big guy.
It gives us great peace of mind to know that she comes to see him, and he LOVES her!!
Not only is she our dog walker, but we consider her a friend. We are so lucky to have connected with her and would absolutely recommend her services!! LOVE HER!!"

It’s with great pleasure, I provide a reference letter for Taylor Norman of Westbound Hound. Taylor has been walking my dog, Sasha, for over a year. She has proven to be a reliable, responsible, and a loving dog walker. My girl adores her! Their relationship is obvious every time she comes over. I highly recommend Taylor! It takes a village to raise a pup, and I’m so glad that Taylor was part of ours for the past year!

"If my dog Otis could speak, he would say Taylor is the best dog sitter/walker ever! I've left him in Taylor's care numerous times and I know I had nothing to worry about. The only worry I had was that Otis wouldn't want to come home because he had so much fun with Taylor (and her dog Maia!). There are very few people I know that are as dedicated and passionate about dogs and their well being as Taylor is. I highly recommend her to anyone that is considering her services, as I know from my own experience that she is the best!"

"Miss Taylor came to my house in Milton on occasion to take me for walks and cuddles – rain or shine. Although I didn’t see her everyday, (only when my parents worked or had a need), she was always accommodating and made my life easier.
Taylor left my parents an update after my time with her and she told them exactly what I had done on our walks. Taylor communicated really well with me and my parents.
If you are in need of someone to help out with doggy walks I can recommend Taylor without hesitation. She is a trustworthy, caring individual and is professional in every way. Your Dog would be in good hands and you would be lucky to have her."
Yours in Dog Happiness,
- Miss Penny (alias Miss P)
"Since I met Taylor, it was clear that she loves dogs more than anything else. Even before she officially opened Westbound Hound, she’s helped me out with my own beloved dog, Darwin, by taking him for walks and dogsitting him when I was out of town. She cares about my dog (almost!) as much as she cares about her own, always treating him exactly how she would treat Maia. Darwin has behavioural issues stemming from being a rescue, and I am always very hesitant to leave him with someone. Luckily, I’ve never had to worry with Taylor – Darwin adores her, and she is reliable, trustworthy, and loving – the perfect combination for both a worried dog and a worried dog-mom. I am pleased to highly recommend Taylor and the Westbound Hound team to everyone that loves their pets!"
