Heather Woods

My passion has always been my dogs… actually all animals.  This love led me to open Paw Prints Pet Care with my main focus being Professional Pet care.  Once my children were grown I decided that I wanted to learn all I could so that I could help and understand these animals that impact our lives so positively.

This journey found me volunteering at the Georgian Triangle Humane Society.  What an amazing place!   This opened a door for some courses and training with the OSPCA. This served to grow my desire so I completed several behaviour courses through Canine Foundations, including canine first aid and CPR.

I cannot believe that I get paid to spend most of my days with a house full of doggies and home visits to many dogs and cats in the Collingwood community. Pet care in the Collingwood area is my passion.

“Heather has helped me with dog walking for several years.
Her passion for dogs is evident as soon as you meet her!
She tries her very best to be flexible on timing. The walks are more than a stroll…she gets them to “interact” with each other, and go on interesting active walks around town.

My dog Nudge adores her. She is a very cost-effective way to ensure he gets his exercise when I cannot be there for him! I would very highly recommend her”.

“We are so happy with Heather! Our golden retriever, Willow, has walked with Heather for a year now. She sees Heather coming and can not hold back her excitement. She has benefited so much from the social interaction with the Other dogs. Heather obviously loves these dogs. She cares for each one.
Thank you, Heather, for all you do for these special members of our families”.


“We got ‘Maggie,’ a mini Goldendoodle, last summer. She was a great fit, however, we forgot how much time and energy is required with a pup.
A neighbour recommended Heather Woods (Paw Prints Pet Care) if we needed any support or assistance with Maggie. What a blessing this was!
Heather has made life with Maggie so much more enjoyable — from housesitting at our home to taking Maggie for a weekend to her home and weekly walks with other dogs, lucky to be under her care.
Heather’s dedication to spending time with animals is obvious in the love & guidance she provides to them. We are happier pet owners and Maggie is a happier and better-behaved pup.
Her flexibility & caring way make her our #1 choice for Maggie to spend time with. We feel we have won the jackpot!”

“Heather is a wonderful caregiver for my golden doodle.
She is enthusiastic about all the animals and walks in any weather. She is accommodating, knowledgeable and full of smiles and energy.   My dog runs to the door when she hears her coming. I would highly recommend Heather”.
