daily updates provided to you via text, email, or social media – there
is no question about it, communication is key to a good relationship.

Melissa Hubling, CPACP
An Animal Care graduate from Sheridan College (2002) I am able to utilize my college education on a daily basis and also furthered my knowledge by completing a dog walking program (Dogtec, 2014) , obtaining my Certificate in Professional Pet Sitting (Pet Sitters International, 2014) & Professional Animal Care Provider Certification (PACCC, 2017).
My exploits in continuing education are far from over as I aspire to become a certified dog trainer, feline behaviorist, animal massage therapist, reiki healer & pet loss & bereavement counselor.
Previous animal care experience includes working at Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto and work placement at Bowmanville animal shelter, Trillium Morgan Horse farm as well as the local zoo, Jungle Cat World Wildlife Park (formerly Orono Exotic Jungle Cat World) where I worked with everything from million dollar race horses, domestic dogs & cats to pocket pets, parrots, reptiles & exotics of all sizes (tigers, leopards & wolves included!).
The idea of Pawsh came to me while vacationing in Vancouver in early July 2013. With the opportunity to move west from my home town of Orono, Ontario I opted to roll the dice and go for broke by starting my business in a new province with no connections and nothing to lose. Thankfully my education, guts and sheer luck out shone my extreme shyness and Pawsh not only was born but has thrived.

Life threw me a big fluffy curve ball nine years ago, when my first dog was added to our family. It was definitely a change of pace from cats… literally! Rain, wind, sleet or snow, but our dog got his walk. Many years later, I’m still learning but having a blast and very excited to utilize my love of pets and make sure yours are safe, happy, healthy and well exercised!

I have just completed my DogSafe First Aid and I am confident that I know what to do in an emergency. It’s a great course for any dog guardian! I am working on the Dr. Brian Hare Dog Emotion and Cognition online class, and looking forward to learning more about how our fur-babies think.

I’ve always made cards and done numerous scrapbooks. Melissa once asked me to do pet cards for thank you, birthday and sympathy occasions and I was hooked! My creative brain is away working on new ideas so if you have any pet occasions coming up and need a greeting, let me know.
