I want to teach you the joy of learning how to communicate with your dog. Modern dog training is about building a relationship with your canine best friend, not about “being the alpha”.
Dogs don’t do anything wrong. Ever. They may do things that we don’t like, but in their eyes, they’re only doing what they know how to do to get what they want.
If we want to change their behaviour, we need to teach them something new. By reward them when they offer this new behaviour, the desired behaviour becomes the new normal.
Patience, persistence, and kindness. Never punishment.
When I was 30, I was broke.
Like really broke. I had no money. No food in the fridge. Electricity scheduled to be shut off. Things were bad.
As I was cleaning my backyard that year, an idea came to me. I kind of laughed to myself and thought “Why the hell not? I have nothing to lose.”
I put an ad on Kijiji with the title: “We Clean Dog Sh*t”. It was terrible work to say the least but it got me back on my feet again.
That was the spring of 2015 and although we don’t do waste removal anymore, we’re still focused on reliable service with a friendly “I feel like I’ve known you for years” demeanour.
As we’ve grown, we’ve evolved what we do to provide better service for our clients and for their furry family members. We’re here to help and to make you smile.

I've come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that's as unique as a fingerprint - and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you.

“Greg is extremely hard working and reliable, and will even accommodate last-minute requests! The dog sitting is especially invaluable to me. My pup always comes home without a care in the world and eagerly races to the door on subsequent visits. TuxedoMutt coordinates appointments with my groomer and provides transportation, so that’s another thing off my plate. My dog Ernie loves all people but no one gets a greeting like Greg. I feel so fortunate to have a company like this in KW! Highly recommend!
