Hi, my name is Dan and I have been around dogs as long as I can remember. I have had the pleasure of sharing beautiful and exciting moments with a Weimeranian 'Egmont', a Dutch Barge dog (Kaashund) 'Alban', a Spaniel/Collie mix 'Barbar', a Miniature Pinscher 'Flea' and a Labrador named 'Diabe'.
A few years ago I wanted to know more about dogs and started working as a dog-walker. I began by walking dogs on leash in the Cedarvale area. I then progressed to walk dogs off leash in High Park and along the Humber River. This really developed my pack leadership skills.
To have a more in depth understanding of dog training I have completed a dog trainer diploma with Animal Behavior College (ABC). I have also completed a pet first aid course to be prepared in case of an emergency.
Through my daily interaction, experience and studies I have learned to read a dogs body language and understand what they require in a leader.
Having worked with companies that take the responsibility of a professional service seriously, I understand the importance of having proper insurance and carrying a valid Toronto dog walking permit.
My aim is to provide stimulating and exhausting walks by using a variety of parks in the West Toronto area so that the dogs are tired and happy on their return. I have a reliable vehicle that can safely transport any sized dog ,from a Great Dane to a Chiuaua, to and from the outing.
I look forward to meeting you and your furry family member(s) and can provide references on demand.
