Instructor Profile: Krista DeCarle of Royal Pooch Pet Services, Calgary Alberta
Krista DeCarle has been offering the Walks 'N' Wags Pet First Aid program in Calgary, AB for the past 12 months.
Here is her story:
"I have a loving husband who has accepted my crazy love of animals and joined in by my side. Our 5 year old daughter and 19 month old son are in the mix of all these animals and learning how important animals are. I have always been passionate not only about animals but the welfare of them, including volunteering at a feline rescue for over 3 years. There I worked with domestics to ferals, giving the abused a second chance at trusting and being loved. I also worked at a veterinarian's for 3+ years which I found so interesting especially when I was able to watch the surgeries.
Over the years I was always the person friends/family would ask to care for their pets. When I was on maternity leave with my son I decided to turn my passion into a business that could not only benefit my family but also benefit those families out there looking for quality pet care! I opened Royal Pooch Pet Services and it is one of the best decisions I ever made. Seeing clients feeling at ease and returning time after time because their pets are happy is why I do it.
Then when I had the chance to be able to teach Pet First Aid I was thrilled. It was an honour to be able to teach others what to do in an emergency situation, how to care for their pet day to day and to even teach professional pet care workers how to make their work place a safe environment. I am excited to see what the future holds and excited to be able to touch even more pets and their owners."
Pictured here with rescue dog "Georgie", Krista recently volunteered at a spay/neuter clinic at a reserve near her home community. Between her job, teaching, and her family we are always amazed when she is able to add extra activities like this to her schedule. Krista is a dynamic and kind Instructor who is full of energy and passion for what she does.
Krista actively teaches public classes in Calgary, and is also open to offering private courses to rescue groups and other private businesses. Krista has 2 upcoming public courses for you to choose from in North Calgary: June 2, 2012 (full day) or June 16/17, 2012 (2 half days).
