Hi, my name is Dan and I have been around dogs as long as I can remember. I have had the pleasure of sharing my life with a Weimeranian 'Egmont', a Dutch Barge dog 'Alban', a Spaniel/Collie 'Barbar', a Miniature Pinscher 'Flea' and a Labrador named 'Diabe'. I now share my home with a St.Bernard-doodle named Eddie.
In 2010 I wanted to work outside more and started working as a dog-walker. I began by walking dogs in the Cedarvale ravine area. I have since walked dogs in most of the parks in West Toronto. This has 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 very well and understand their behavior.
My aim is to provide stimulating and fun 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 hybrid car that is dependable and minimizes environmental impact.
I look forward to meeting you and your furry family member(s) and can provide references on demand.
