I’m Favio and I simply love animals! I am originally from Colombia but I have been living in Canada during the last seven years. I have had dogs all my life and have been pet sitting six years ago. Currently, I am a student of the Shadow Program (I am receiving education in order to become a dog trainer) and hopefully, I will start the dog behaviourist program too! I am familiar with different breeds and love all shapes, sizes and ages of dogs.
On the other hand, I am an illustrator and cartoonist. I live in Lincoln Heights and I have four kids; the older ones, Daniel and Carolina, are grown and they are in college. The small and furry ones, Sam and Sophie, are still with my wife and me. Sam is a smart and active 5-year-old bichon frisé
and Sophie is a lazy and intelligent 5-year-old mix Chihuahua and Jack Russell. Besides Sam and Sophie, I have had the love of a Saint Bernard, a Labrador, a Pug, a couple of German Shepherds, a Basset Hound and a boxer.
I started walking dogs around six years ago. It has been one of the best things I have done in my life. I love them and they seem to know it right away and they are comfortable and relaxed when in my care, making this the perfect job for me.
I can visit your pets (I have visited cats and rabbits too) as many time as you want, and/or I can walk them even if it is snowing, raining or if it is a sunny day.
I can’t wait to meet you and your pet to create a lasting friendship with both of you!
By the way; I can also paint your pet...
I know how to approach dogs in a way that is non threatening to reduce their anxiety and to help them to relax. I can help to maintain the routine they are used to so they will not get anxious or feel so alone when you are away. I understand that some breeds have special needs and that the age of the dog will play a major role in how to take care of them. I am also in a very good physical condition so I can either walk, run or play with them, and the size of your dog or pet is not a problem for me.
