We use positive reinforcement and desensitizing to make your dog's experience positive.
We take notes after every appointment to track your dog's progress in desensitizing, notable changes in wellness, and other milestones.
We get to know you and your dog so we can make helpful suggestions from a diet switch that may be beneficial, to a new toy that we think they'd love.
We’ll go at your dog’s pace, for the first trim this may even mean not getting to all the nails; our goal is to create a positive experience for everyone so that your dog is comfortable coming back for maintenance trims. We will also chat with you about nutrition and dental health. Report card provided.
Our hero product, this nail trim includes two employees and treats, as well as a top notch nail trim.
Whether your dog is blowing their coat or has a few too many stubborn mats, we'll do our best to get them looking as new.
We gently remove wax and hair to keep those ears feeling fresh. We can apply cleaning solution if necessary.
"We use hand tools to manually scale your dog's teeth and it takes about 1 hour. If we see anything out of the ordinary in the mouth we will talk about it with you before we get started."
Tanya got her start working in vet clinics both in Calgary and Vancouver. After seeing the same dogs month after month for the same ailments Tanya developed a strong passion for preventative health care. As a result, nutrition, grooming and health care become a corner stone of the company, which Tanya now spearheads in our healthcare services.
When she's not in the store Tanya loves to cook, get out for walks and play with her two rugrats, Chuck and Huck.
Retail and Healthcare Service
Katie (right) has worked with dogs as long as she has worked in human health care. Her goal is to share her knowledge in canine behaviour, training, nutrition, and cooperative care husbandry with her community. Katie is currently raising a feisty terrier shitzhu mix who excels at nosework, and an older Boston pug coping with aging and separation anxiety. She is no stranger to dietary sensitivities, behavioral struggles, the challenges of puppy raising and most of all the joy of finding solutions to those concerns that bring peace to the whole household. Katie is currently a retail clerk and assists in our cooperative, consent based healthcare program.
We'd love to meet you!
