Experts at meeting your dogs needs
Chantelle Mackney lives and breathes cats and dogs. Now she’s here to share her passion for animals with your fluffy family member!
She’s devoted to the care of her own three dogs and four cats – all with their own unique behavioural and health needs.
In the little spare time she has left, she runs Justice for Bullies Canine Society of Alberta, a non profit that encourages responsible dog ownership and breed neutral bylaws. She played a role in changing the Chestermere Animal Control Bylaw a few years ago. In working with the public and advocating for over 70,000 dogs and their owners she eventually realized that with all her knowledge, a career in animal care was the logical next choice.
When her adopted dog started showing signs of reactivity to other dogs, she was committed to ensuring that she had the proper tools to set her dog up for success, while adding to her own understanding of canine behaviour. The classes she has taken with Cindy include: Canine Communication, Understanding Reactivity, and Reactive Dog Class.
Chantelle and her dog Mr. Magoo have participated in Barn hunt, Rally Obedience Novice, Rally Obedience Advanced and the Canine Good Neighbour Certification. Recently Chantelle and Mr Magoo achieved their Novice, and Intermediate Trick Dog Titles.
