Take Me for a Walk – Happy Hounds Co.

From South Africa to Canada, exotic animals to Canadian ‘fur-babies’ – Jillian’s love for animals is all encompassing! 

Imagine the joy of our fur babies when Jillian arrives at the door?  I’m sure your pets will Shout “Take Me for a Walk – It’s Happy Hounds Co.”

Jillian isn’t a “dog-walker”; Jillian is a “dog companion extraordinaire”.  She takes her charges off-roading.  Simcoe County Trails – meet Jillian and her pack!

The Canine Brain

Understanding the canine brain – Jillian fills a very niche spot in our city.  Her philosophy stems from the primal pack needs to acceptable socialization of her charges.

Our pets, just like ourselves, do very well after a good workout.  Jillian dons her boots, packing treats for all, to head out for a great hike.

Her charges, our pets, are excited.  They know it’s time for a good long hike – totally free to do what most only dream of – meet nature head on – off leash- for hours!

The companionship doesn’t end there though! 

A Social Experience

Throughout the social experience of running trails as a pack, our pets are being trained in subtle ways through Jillian’s guidance and “pack hierarchy”.

Imagine their joy, getting along with each other, making discoveries, following the scents of the forest – even taking time for a good swim! (Summer of course)

Customized Packages Available

Jillian is the owner of Happy Hounds Co. in the north end of the city.  She offers customized packages for our furry friends as well.

Services Include:

Check out her 'Social'

I love checking out Jillian’s Facebook!  It’s a great way to meet the ‘Pack’.  The glimpse into the adventures our pets are on is a wonderful way of communicating.

Jillian’s ability to lead the pack is so evident.  No wonder our pets are so happy to see her!

Our Pets Suffer in Silence…

As a pet owner, I’m sure you know just how much your pet loves you!  In fact, the love of a pet rivals only that of a human and child!

Feel the Luv'!

I’m sure you’ve noticed that if you’re out of sorts you’ll soon feel a lick or nudge from your pet – just to let you know they’re ready to be there for you!

             We all know and love the “getting home” greeting!  Right at the door, ready to be embraced and wanting to “talk”!

 Pets can give us so much love and emotional support.  The therapeutic effects we  feel are also felt by our pets.  However, their love and want of pleasing us actually      hides how they truly feel and doesn’t allow them to show us pain and disease.

Our Pets DO Suffer in Silence...

      It’s very well known that pets often suffer in silence…

Dr. Uvi Singh of The Animal Hospital on Bell Farm Road says:

“Their world ‘begins’ and ‘ends’ with us…We owe it to them to make every second of their existence count.”

That’s never truer than when being pro-active with the health of your ‘Pet-kids”.

   Dr. Uvi and his staff have made it their personal mission to prevent animals suffering in silence – especially when it comes to their oral care.

The good Doctor explained that because our ‘pet kids’ don’t display pain in an easily perceptible or conventional manner, it’s up to us as owners to take the preventative measures necessary for them.

           Saying that, Dr Uvi gives us the following advice: 

Tips to prevent dental disease:

  • Schedule your pet for a thorough checkup and dental cleaning yearly
  • Brush your pets teeth every 1 to 3 days
  • Use dental rinses, water additives, wipes or gel
  • Stick to only Veterinary prescription dental chew and diet

A healthy mouth is pain free and less at risk for bone loss, oral infection, and liver/kidney and heart damage.  Dental care is highly individual and specific from pet to pet.  Please call Doc Bowtie to book an oral health assessment for valuable insight on preventing your ‘’pet kid’ from suffering in silence!
