New Safety Protocol

At OMD we're hyper-vigilant when it comes to safety. I lose sleep over the things that could go wrong, and then imagine every possible way to prevent accidents. I've seen it all, kept a great track record, and never become complacent. Accidents can happen to anyone, but at the end of each day, I know I did everything I could.straps Lately I've been feeling overwhelmed by the number of missing dogs in Toronto. Often, the culprit is faulty equipment or a slipped harness.

I've been a huge fan of the carabiner, and still am. But they're bulky, and when you need to carry multiples, in multiple sizes, it's just too much and doesn't work in every situation. So I began the search for "safety straps" that would connect harness to collar. I came up empty many time times in my search, but then it occurred to me that I have this amazing client who cannot only sew, but can also think critically.

All OMD clients with harnesses will now be sporting one of these in addition to a properly fitted collar/martingale. This way, if a harness ever fails, or the dog manages to wriggle out, he's still attached to the leash via the strap.

Here's to sleeping better!

A very HUGE thank you to Zoe's mum.








Meet Mackenzie!

Mackenzie joined the OMD team a few weeks ago, and I couldn't be happier. I had bumped into her in the parks many times over the past year, and was always impressed with her skills as a dog walker. She's gentle, loving and patient. Not to mention very safety conscious. Mackenzie joins OMD in search of new challenges and experiences. She has an active interest in positive reinforcement training, somehthing I intend to nurture and encourage in every way possible.

What else can I say about this sweet, vegan, animal-lovin' girl? She's also an awesome photographer! Follow along with her OMD adventures at @123woof on Instagram.
