Currently servicing SW Calgary. We here at Little and Big Paw Pet Services Inc. are all about family. We believe that your pets should be treated as such. We are familiar with a variety of different handling methods and are open to learning more.* We will send owners daily updates via text or email about how the walk went, pick up and drop off times and behaviour that has been exhibited during our time with your pets. You can also check pick up and drop off times in your client portal. We try to have our pick ups completed between 9 am and 3 pm. Please understand that from time to time we do run behind on schedule.**
My name is Lauren and I have been caring for the pets of others since I was 8 years old. I would always borrow the dogs of neighbours and family members to take for walks and request to watch their pets when traveling on vacations. As a teenager I would care for up to 8 show dogs that belonged to a neighbour at a time, as well as maintain their fishpond and watch the house. I had dreams of being a veterinarian as a child and always told how good I was with animals. I completed a course for Veterinary Administrative Assistant at NAIT in 2010. After working in the clinic environment for approximately a year in both the back as an assistant and front as reception I realized it was not the place for me. I have been walking and caring dogs professionally since summer 2014. I am actively pursuing to expand my education in pet care and working towards becoming a certified trainer at some point. I am more than willing to handle your reactive fur kids and work with helping them become valued friends in our groups. I am more than happy to help bring your fearful fur kids out of their shells and become more social with the world. Where other walkers see a "bad" dog I see an opportunity to help a pup in need.
I currently have 5 cats and 3 dogs (Peanut, Rev & Viva). I take all of my dogs to training classes on a regular basis and bring the skills we learn back to the walks with me. Peanut and Rev are working on their show careers, while Viva is only showing from time to time and working on training for other dog sports. I have a CKC (Canadian Kennel Club) kennel name of Localuna, from time to time we will have German Shorthair Pointer litters.
