Dog Walking and Behaviour Issue – Follow My Lead
Jacqueline has always wanted to create a business where she could pursue her passion and love for these wonderful animals called dogs. Finally in 2015 the opportunity to open Jacq’s Pack became a dream come true.
Jacqueline’s love and affection for dogs started at a very young age. Her first love, at the tender age of seven, was the family dog Skippy. Her fondest memory of Skippy was the little wiggle in her walk. Then there was Sabrina, a beautiful border collie terrier mix who lived to the ripe old age of 18 and filled their home with many years of joy.
As an adult she had two wonderful dogs; Brindle, who she adopted from the Toronto Humane Society and Bo, a dog she rescued from an abusive owner who was more than willing to give him up when Jacq offered to give him a good home.
Jacqueline has observed over the years how we have unknowingly humanized and loved our dogs to the point of instability and insecurity. It is her goal that everyone learn a new language, Dog Language! Our canine friends are constantly speaking yet we are blind to the conversation they are having with us and other dogs every single day, right before our eyes.
When we understand what makes our dog tick, perhaps it is a herder breed like a border collie, or is food motivated, we have the knowledge to make a more fulfilling life for you and your best friend. As Cesar Millan says “exercise, discipline and then affection” are the keys. As an athlete and marathon runner Jacqueline connects to Cesar’s philosophy.
They say the universal language is love. Jacqueline adds one more to that list. The language of dogs is the same all over the world. Once you learn to speak it you can converse with canines from Iceland to Australia and all points in between!
