Hi, my name is Megan and I am the founder of Waggin’ Tails with Meg.
I graduated in 2011 from Durham College’s Veterinary Assistant program. After graduation, I worked as a Veterinary Assistant at a 24-hour Veterinary Emergency Clinic assisting in procedures and animal care. With my experience, I bring knowledge and expertise in caring for your pet. I know the ins and outs of what it takes to maintain a good rapport with animals of all kinds.
Along with her veterinary assistant certification, current pet first aid certification (2020) with Walks ‘N’ Wags, and animal industry experience, Megan continues to educate herself by attending courses on dog behaviour, psychology and training, and stays up to date on industry literature and current events. Many of the foundation skills learned with us will transfer to your life at home.

Our Happy Clients
We are so happy with the dog walking services and the dog sitting services that Megan provides. Our Sophie waits at the front door each day for Megan to arrive. Megan is Sophie’s favourite visitor and she loves her fellow dogs on her runs. We are so fortunate to have Megan a part of our daily routine. She is reliable and devoted to her all her dogs.
Leslie and Rod
Khailee and Winnie, our two shihtzus, have been on weekly adventures with Megan for well over a year now. We are so grateful to have Megan in their lives and feel such peace of mind knowing that they are being cared for by someone who is a trustworthy, compassionate and responsible caregiver. We absolutely recommend Waggin Tails and Megan’s dog walking and sitting services!

The Yuzwin family
I’ve had a very good experience with Megan since my dog Benny started with her. She picks him up and takes him to the local dog parks for group walks. By the time I get home he’s pooped. I am so relaxed knowing she is looking after him while I’m at work. Megan has become one of Benny’s favourite persons outside the family. He is so happy to see her every Wednesday since their first meeting they “fit”. Megan takes care of him like he is her own. Megan has not once missed a walk since we started and she is very flexible if I need to change the date and times, very accommodating!! Megan does it all and amazingly well! I highly recommend her.
We stumbled across Megan and her business when we got our first puppy Roxy (cutest dog in the world) and were in desperate need of a puppy visitor. Ever since day one Megan has been there for us whenever we’ve needed her, even on very short notice. We are both busy and at the whim of very chaotic schedules that are constantly changing — Megan always puts up with us and is there for Roxy. She’s very organized and easy to work with! She’s never missed a visit, always communicates with us about issues and funny things Roxy does (even provides photos!) – it was hard for us to trust anyone with Roxy and our home but that quickly faded away when we met Megan and saw how great she is with Roxy. Roxy loves her visits and now enjoys going on daily walks with Megan and the doggy gang. It’s the perfect break for her during our long days! You can’t beat Megan’s reliability & experience. I am sure if Roxy could talk, she’d agree! Thanks Megan!

Megan has looked after Kevin, our Labradoodle, on a number of occasions and has always been great with her. Megan’s love of animals comes through immediately; she is firm but gentle, and Kevin responds by putting on her best behaviour. Megan has walked Kevin for us on short notice when we were in a pinch and she has stayed over at our place for days at a time, looking after Kevin and our home, bringing in the mail, watering plants, and keeping the place looking lived-in while we travelled. Megan is responsible, compassionate, professional and careful. She is respectful of our rules for our dog (such as not giving Kevin too many treats and walking her using the Gentle Leader collar) and careful in our home. There have been no issues at all with Megan and we never worry about leaving our dear pooch in her capable hands. We have no hesitation in recommending her as a dog-walker and pet/housesitter.
Pina & Andrea
Meg has pet sit for our two cats on multiple occasions and she always does a great job. In the past we’ve returned from vacation to cats who seem angry that we went away without them. When Meg is cat sitting that simply isn’t the case. We now always return home to happy cats who have clearly been looked after very well. Meg is very responsible and trustworthy. If Meg pet sits for you, you can be assured that you will return home and it will be just as you left it and your pets will be happy to see you. We would definitely recommend her as a pet sitter, as she always takes such good care of our boys Kefka and Cringer.
Linds & Sanjv
Megan has pet sit for me on several occasions, for a total of six weeks. She stayed in my condo while I was away. I have one cat that requires lots of attention and play time! Megan did a great job caring for my cat (feeding, cleaning the litter box, and playing with him); he seemed happy and content upon my return and he bonded with Megan. Megan will also do extra chores such as gather mail, water plants, and of course keep your place tidy while you are away. Megan is responsible and trustworthy. I would highly recommend Megan to care for your pets while you are away.
Meg took care of our cat Marley when we went away for our destination wedding. It was good to know that someone who loves animals as much as she does was caring for our cat while we were away. She did an excellent job and we would definitely have her look after Marley again the next time we go away!
