I may be preaching to the converted; nevertheless, I must state that, in my experience, living with 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. Add in the numerous other benefits in terms of health, personal wellbeing and the distinct feel-good factor that sharing your life with a dog can bring
So, when you make the decision 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. When making this commitment, sometimes life can get in the way; you want/ need a break/holiday or you feel that your dog would benefit from different 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 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.
Some 11 years ago 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 NW and latterly Mr Poochman’s Pooch House were born.
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 reinforce this 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 services to discerning clients in Calgary.
I support of my commitment and as an added comfort I am insured with PROfur, have been Police checked and have ongoing certification in Pet First Aid by Walks ‘n’ Wags.
