About Us

Our history

Hi there I am Marcus Barber and I welcome you to Active Paws North

After a 16 year success with Active Paws in Toronto we have expanded to the Georgian Bay area here in Thornbury. 

Born and raised in this area there was always a calling to return home. Being that many of my clients have weekend and vacations spots in this area I determined there was a need for our services and Active Paws North was born. 

We are bringing our experience and expertise to the area we love the most and look forward to meeting you. We know that there may be needs here that we didn’t have in the city so should there be anything you need that we may have not mentioned please contact us with an inquiry and we will do our best to accommodate you.
