COVID-19 Update - Snouts Out is open but is taking precautions to keep clients and their dogs safe.

Welcome to Snouts Out

About Mike

After almost 30 years in the entertainment industry, I decided to bring my passion to something I love even more - dogs! All my life, dogs have been a part of my family and I am grateful for all the love and happiness they've shown me over the years. I feel fortunate that I get to experience that every day with the dogs I walk and board.

Our Mission

Snouts Out is a Toronto company located in East York. With our busy Toronto lifestyles, I feel it is so important that our best friends get the exercise, attention and play they need to live long and comfortable lives.


Snouts Out is fully bonded, licensed, insured and Pet CPR Certified so that you can have peace of mind and rest assured that I will provide all the love and care your furry friend deserves.

Frequently Asked Questions

paw icon What precautions are you taking due to the COVID-19 pandemic?

Snouts Out COVID-19 safety protocols follow Provincial and Federal Government guidelines and will be updated as needed to best protect clients and their pets during this dynamic time.

  • • Masks - I wear a mask at all times in your home. On walks, if in an area where social distancing is not possible, I wear a mask.
  • • Social Distancing - I practice social distancing of at least 6ft and restrict any socializing with other people or dogs. I do not allow strangers to touch the pack.
  • • Sanitization - I sanitize my hands/gloved hands before and after each visit. You are welcome to provide disinfectant wipes for me to wipe down any surfaces (hooks, handles, door, etc) that I have touched.
  • • Minimizing contact - I spend as little time in your home as necessary, and touch as few items as possible. I’ll continue to check water bowls for a top up, but can forgo giving treats at the end of the walk by special request. If you will be home when I enter, I would be happy to discuss the best options for a contactless pickup and drop-off of your pup. Please contact us with any other special instructions for your home or common areas in your building.
paw icon How does this work?

I pick your good boy/girl up and take them on a scenic walk, usually at either the Evergreen Brickworks, Taylor Creek Park or Woodbine Beach. They receive 1 hour of walking time (does not include driving time), after which I return them home, safely and securely.

I ask that you provide me with a key to your door, or your door code. Keys will not have your address on them; they are kept safe, on my person. Door codes are kept in a file on the encrypted client communication app, and seen only by the client and myself.

paw icon I work from home. Will I be disturbed?

I will enter as quickly and quietly as possible to retrieve your dog. I’m sorry I can’t stay to chat – I’ve got the pack waiting!

paw icon Will my dog be off-leash?

No. For the safety of you, your pooch, and others, they will always be on a leash. Therefore, I will insist that no choke collars for your dog be used – they are painful and may cause tracheal/esophageal damage. Also, I strongly advise that your pup has a proper harness. I recommend the Easy Walk Harness, as it’s a great product that slows the dog by gently pulling their shoulders in. I use it for the majority of my pack, and can be found at Wag on Danforth. For your convenience, I can pick one up for you at no extra cost.

paw icon Do you pick up their poop?

Yes - don’t want the pack to get a bad rap! And I do supply the bags.

paw icon Do you train dogs?

I will train your dog to walk with the pack and behave accordingly with the other dogs. All other training will be best left to you or a trainer.

I have three daily packs to choose from: 11am-12pm, 12:30-1:30pm and 2-3pm. Note: maximum 6 dogs/pack. I do offer evening walks and weekend walks to accommodate those with a busy schedule and are unable to get home to their dogs on time.

I will do my best to clean and dry your dog off. Please ensure a dry towel is hanging by the entrance.

Yes, I board dogs in my home, but will only be able to house a couple at one time. Your furry friend will have a clean, secure environment with access to our entire home, and companionship with our mellow lab mix, Jackson. Regular walks, playtime, bedtime stories and cuddle all included. Most importantly your buddy will receive lots of love and personal attention while you are away.

Yes, I carry liability insurance, a licence with The City of Toronto, and am bonded. I am also certified in Pet First Aid and CPR.

paw icon What information do I need to supply?

To get started, fill out the Client Information Form located on this website and we will set up a complimentary consultation. When you decide to join, you will need to fill out the Client Service Agreement, as well as Medical, Vaccination and Pet Info forms. These can be downloaded from my client communication app.

paw icon How is payment handled?

I will bill you at the end of each month, payments can be made by e-transfer or cash.

paw icon Do you have a cancellation policy?

Daily walks are subject to a 24-hour cancellation period.

Mike has been walking our golden retriever Ruby for many months now. She loves heading out with Mike and the pack. Always comes back tired and happy! Mike has gone the extra mile, swinging by Wag to get her fitted for a new harness. Ruby has also boarded with Mike which was a great experience. Can’t recommend highly enough!

Kate Scroggins

Mike is a wonderful dog walker and dog caregiver. He is very caring, knowledgeable, flexible, and reliable...Lila loves him! We use his services every week for walking and intermittently for boarding our super energetic dog, she loves being with him and the pack. We highly recommend Mike for caring for and walking any dog!

SP Knoerres

Mike is amazing with our dog and a pleasure to do business with - a great communicator, very trustworthy and professional. Our dog can't wait for his next boarding stay. Highly recommended!

Joanna Martin

We use Snouts Out pet services on an occasional basis, as we work odd and sometimes long hours in catering. Mike is always prompt to respond, highly organized and detailed in his notes. We love the app that he uses. He's patient with our rescue puppy and we trust him for walks and boarding. Highly recommended.
