I may be preaching to the converted; nevertheless, I must state that, in my experience, owning a dog can be very rewarding… for many reasons.
Notwithstanding the fact that looking after dogs properly can be quite demanding in terms of commitment, a little directed effort will be repaid in spades with unreserved and unconditional love freely offered over many years; not to mention numerous other benefits in terms of health, personal wellbeing and the distinct feel-good factor that owning a dog can bring.
So, when you make the decision to become a dog owner (or possibly more correctly to share your life with a dog), you want to do a good job…right… both for you and yours and especially for your canine chum. However, sometimes life gets in the way, you need a break or you feel that your dog would benefit from a routine that you cannot readily maintain on your own, for whatever reason. That’s where I can help.
I am a long-term dog lover who has owned (or probably more correctly been owned by) many canines of different varieties over the last 30 years (English Springer Spaniel, Lurcher, West Highland Terrier, Golden Retriever, Puggle/Bulldog cross and now Angus…A German Shepherd/Fox Terrier cross with a few other constituent bits) and Daisy…a Puggle, clever and with just a smidgen of attitude!; all very different personalities.
When I had the opportunity to offer my experience and enthusiasm to both help lighten the load on owners and enrich the lives of their canine chums I did not have to think twice. Voila…Pooch Walk Calgary and the Pooch House were born.
Within the Pooch Walk family I am committed to consistent, quality service for both clients and pooches alike. I guarantee that all animals in my care are treated as I treat my own; with patience, affection, respect, and a recognition that they are individuals. I have a real connection with dogs. I enjoy being in their company and I pride myself in establishing and maintaining positive and productive relationships with them (and their owners too, of course! :-)). To this end I always undertake a thorough consultation with owners to ascertain their dogs’ personality; likes and dislikes; behavior traits and any areas of concern or issues that may affect their dog whilst they are with me. In short, I offer a professional yet personal pooch care service to discerning clients in Calgary.
As an added comfort I am insured and bonded (PROfur), Police checked and Pet First Aid trained by Walks ‘n’ Wags.
