Who is Rover and Rover?

Rover and Rover is owned and operated by a long time dog lover Marta Wajngarten. As a child Marta was told she wasn’t allowed to own a dog, so she did the next best thing. She read all she could about them and volunteered any chance she had to help take care of other people’s dogs. In 1998 Marta turned her passion into a business offering dog walking and dog boarding services in select Toronto neighborhoods. What started out as a part time hobby that helped pay university bills,  quickly snowballed into a very successful full time business. Marta left university to focus on her growing business and doing what she loved, and hasn’t looked back since.

Always having a keen interest in behaviour modification, Marta has trained in a multitude of dog sports and disciplines including Rally-O, Agility, Flyball, DockDiving, Schutzhund, French Ring, and PSA and regularly attends various dog training events, seminars, and courses to better her knowledge of dog training and behaviour.  Marta has fostered various rescue dogs and has raised and placed a number of dogs currently employed by private and government K9 agencies across the US. Marta currently offers behavioural and training consultations on a limited bases to existing Rover and Rover clients as well as training enthusiasts.
