Hi... relatively new to Leslieville and looking for a recommendation for a vet in the area. Have been using vet in the west end but our dog is quite old and just started having seizures so looking for someone closer. We have 13 yr old boxer.
Thanks in advance....

Off Leash Policy Review Tomorrow at City Hall...I just received a notice on January 11 for a meeting on January 13th. How convenient for a last minute notice for a hearing on this very sensitive topic. If you want more information go to www.toronto.ca/legdocs/agendas.htm It is at 9:30am 2nd Floor Committee Room #2. If you want to email comments send them to pec@toronto.ca

Hi. This is a response to Mary's advice on Hideaway Grass.

Mary, we actually did a ton of research on which grass would be most resilient for the park and provided that to the City. You're absolutely right on our recommendations. They chose to ignore the recommendation.

I live right on the park so I've seen the grass deteriorate and it is actually due to water...lack of it. We did a test where one of the residents watered it 4-5 times a week while maintaining off leash usage. The grass was lush and fantastic. Sadly Parks will not provide the same TLC to our grass as they did when the previous Parks person used to care for it--his name was Randy.

We have been so disappointed with the continued ignoring of our issues while other park users make one call and get theirs resolved. It is a clear case of discrimination and sad to see considering that dog owners represent over 250,000 in Toronto (coincidentally, that's the same number of children under the age of 9) and yet there are 4% of parks that are off leash vs. 65% that have playgrounds. Statistically, that is enough of an argument to justfy more parks....not that dogs are as important as kids but from a health and tax payer's perspective, if dogs are part of a healthy lifestyle, we should have better access to public resources.

Andre, you have met me and Griffin (my miniature) a number of times - and we do like Joey. Griffin's good friend has moved to Cornwall and he's used to having dogs overnight and is feeling a little lonely lately. If it's just for the weekend and not the week we would be delighted to have Joey stay with us.
Nancy - email me at nancy.armstrong@ontario.ca if you want to discuss.

Does anyone know a good trainer to help us deal with our dog's separation anxiety? Thanks

Looking for a good local kennel to keep my dog....

Currently I use Parker Pet Care in the very east end, however would be nice if someone was aware of a kennel that was closer to Leslieville where I could keep my dog over weekends when required. I have a miniature schnauzer named Joey (some of you may know him from the "talking / yapping" as we go for our walks. He's actually quite delightful. I want a great place and a location where there is some outdoor space to take him out for exercise on a regular basis. If you know of anything please let me know.

Thanks.

Hi. This is a response to TraceyC in regards to Hideaway Park. Last year Parks redid the grass, and it was destroyed in short order. I think one of the issues most off leash areas face is maintaining grass. Typically Parks uses a Bluegrass variety I believe. A stronger, deeper rooted, and SIGNIFICANTLY more drought/grub/weed resistant variety of FESCUE grasses would be far more suited to ALL parks, but would provide significant value to off leash zones, as the blades on the grass are thinner, stronger, and have a deeper root structure - going down 4-6 inches. This is also why they cannot be used as a sod. This grass needs planting, and a reasonable germination period to strengthen the root system. I believe this would solve what is obviously a financial issue with the city, as well as providing a cheaper way to apply the new Fescue grasses, and give the dogs an enhanced area. In the end, everyone is happy. I've seen fescue grow - it needs very little trimming - maybe 4 x year max, no watering, and stays solidly green during droughts. All in all, a much cheaper, viable alternative to the ridiculous sod that is being used at considerable expense to the taxpayer, and providing less than acceptable results. Fescues are native to N.Am, whereas Bluegrass is imported from England originally. They are designed for the climate, not a rain-soaked Jolly England. :)
