Meet The Family
Owner/Operator and CUDDLEMASTER
Heather grew up on a horse farm just north of Huntsville, ON. Farm life gave her real life experience in pet/animal companionship and intense education in their proper care. Having grown up with horses and a wide variety of dogs, Heather has a developed instinct for animal behaviours, and forms loving bonds quickly with pets in her care.
Dan was born on a mountain near Vancouver BC, but raised in the heart of the GTA. He originally classified himself as a ‘cat lover’, but Heather has introduced him to a whole world of love for four legged creatures, dogs most of all. Turns out, he's a 'dog lover' as well. And oddly enough, they seem to love him too! Dan doubles as an extra dog bed.
Heather, with a little help from Dan, founded a small dog walking company called 'Heather & Pooch' in 2011. Heather was looking to find something she was passionate about, while living in Toronto. Aside from having her own two dogs, she would often care for family and friends pets as well. Spending her days outside playing with puppies sounded like the perfect fit for this animal lover!
Not long after she started, Dan realized he needed to get out of the corporate world of advertising to pursue his own creative passions. Dog walking helped him regain his 'zen'. Dan joined the pack in 2013, and hasn't looked back since.
Dan & Heather were married in 2014. Because the only thing they love as much as they love dogs, is each other.
In 2016, they purchased their first home, with the intention of being able to create a country space to offer home-style boarding. They purchased 65 acres of forest in Northumberland County, with a little house to call their own. They changed the name of their business to reflect our new start. And so we became 'Cuddles & Fetch'.
