I begin each session with a 20 minute interview. Sitting down with you over a cup of coffee and just talking to you about the relationship between you and your dog, helps both of you relax before our session. I also try to ask questions that make you think about your relationship with your dog in a new or different light.

The first question I ask is always: How did your dog come into your life? Everyone has very different stories about their dogs and different answers to this question.

Here’s Naischa and Jameson’s story:

Jameson came into my life shortly after I had lost my first dog. I was having a really hard time dealing with an empty house and I had been visiting shelters almost every day to see if I would feel a spark from any of them. After 2 or 3 months I was getting discouraged and I started feeling like I wouldn’t be able to ever fill that hole in my heart. I saw a picture of Jameson on Facebook and on one of my days off I thought to myself, why not. Two of my friends and I drove out to Vaudreuil and they brought Jameson, then Tim, out from the back cages. He was big and rambunctious but he made me laugh the second he barrelled through that hallway. He wasn’t a dog I expected to instantly fall in love with which I think is what really caught me off guard because I absolutely did. The rest was history.
