Coordinator & Events Planner
Tamara is a university educated Paralegal that currently works as a property coordinator downtown Vancouver. Tamara adopted a pair of bonded senior dogs that were both leash reactive towards other dogs and fearful of other people. Through exposure, training and pack walks, Tamara was able to help her dogs work through their fears and take on the role of “pack-leader.” Now, Tamara and her dogs all enjoy their walks together along the sea wall and love to spend time in dog friendly cafe's in the city.
Tamara would like to share her time within the dog world and is coordinating Calming K9's client scheduling, seminars locations and local events. We are very excited to have her join Calming K9 Family and the Team!
Calming K9's Pack Dogs
Bruno A.K.A Big "B"
Bruno is a 3 year old, Labrador, Mastiff, Boxer mix. He is high energy, very driven dog and will do anything for food or a ball.
When he was 12 weeks old he was diagnosed with a skin condition called demodex mange. This prevented him from expereincning important social opportunities as he was very ill from the condition. He bounced back and was completely healthy at 10 months old and we got right to work training and re-socializing him.
He regularly attends private lessons to help rehabilitate client dogs and is an avid member of our team.
Bella A.K.A Queen "B"
Bella is a 12 year old, purebred chihuahua. She became a permanent member of the Calming K9 Pack when she was 10 years old when her behaviour became too much to manage. She was your typical noisy chihuahua that barked at anything and everything. She required a stable routine, boundaries and a lot of exercise to return this out of control ankle biter into a calm, stable, well behaved senior citizen.
Don't let her age or her size fool you, she can pack walk right alongside the large dogs with ease. She is enjoying her golden years soaking up the sunshine and relaxing on her extra large plush dog bed every evening.
Radar A.K.A Squishy
Radar is a 2 year old, purebred French Bulldog and is the newest addition to our pack. He was surrendered to us when his activity level and exercise needs combined with his pushy personality became too much for his family.
He is a little guy with a huge personality. He helps during training lessons when we are teaching client dogs to ignore and walk past other dogs. If you have a leash reactive dog, you will be seeing him during your training lessons with us. Be prepared to be charmed by his squishy little face.
