I consider myself much more than a dog person and philosopher. I have had a lifelong passion for animals and understanding them. I believe this is connected to the traumatic loss of my father at a very young age, in that I found comfort and companionship in the silence of a four-legged friend. By the time I was 11 years old I was the neighbourhood dog walker and throughout university I dog sat for many friends and family. After graduating from university with a Philosophy degree and no clue of what I wanted to do with my life, I meandered through meaningless jobs and kept dogs as just a side gig and hobby. Since then, my admiration for dogs has led me to follow my passion and ditch the 9-5 day job to making animals my career.
In 2010 I adopted a 3-legged Mexican street dog who inspired me to change my life. Together we started an open concept dog daycare without a business degree but with an expansive knowledge of dog behaviour and a dream. I have spent thousands of hours observing dogs in a pack and have learned so much about dogs, their owners, and life in general that I decided to start a blog in order to share this information with you.
I am a writer, photographer, and pack leader and this is my dog philosophy.
