All About Me

Paws for Thought

My name is Riley Friesen and I am originally from Nova Scotia. I moved to Ontario to attend Trent University in 2018 and then more recently onto a family farm just outside of Millbrook. I have been an animal lover my whole life, but apart from that I love reading, exploring nature, and playing games! 

Dedicated to my passion and adoration for animal care, I became a Pet Care Provider in 2020 for a company in Peterborough. During that time I gained confidence in dog walking and caring for pets of all kinds, and ultimately fell in love with providing pet care. That is why in November 2023 I started Millbrook Pet Care to provide loyal and loving pet care in the Millbrook & surrounding areas.
I pride myself on my communication, kindness and flexibility — and my clients would agree. It’s why so many of them use my services on a regular basis. Remember, no job is too big or too small for me to handle, so please get in touch. I can’t wait to start looking after your precious pet.


My Experience

Professional and Volunteer Work

Dog Walker and Pet Care Provider

Sept 2020 - August 2023

I worked for AdventureTails dog walking and pet care in the Peterborough area throughout my time at Trent University. In doing this I gained considerable experience caring for all sorts of pets, and I fell in love with working with animals. 

Lifetime Animal Lover


Pet Firts Aid and CPR Certified

Nov 2023

I grew up with a house fulls of cats and although I was never allowed a dog, I jumped at the opportunity to care for the dogs of neighbours and friends. I love meeting new pets and getting the chance to have fun and exciting experiences with all sorts of animals!

I completed my pet first aid and CPR certification through the St. Johns Ambulance. I would consider myself comfortable and confident to handle any sort of pet emergency to the best of my abilities.
