Unleash Your Paws is owned and operated by Meagan Potter. Meagan has always been an animal lover and outdoor enthusiast. When it comes to being outside all day, in all types of weather, playing with dogs she is a natural.
Once she decided to start a dog walking company, she enrolled in the Dog Trainer Certification Program at The Ottawa Canine School. Having the knowledge to train dogs with positive reinforcement and understand canine body language is essential to stop unwanted behaviours before they occur. Unleash Your Paws then opened in October 2014.
Meagan is certified in pet first aid, and carries an animal specific first aid kit in the car at all times.
Meagan believes that training is based on love and trust, and considers her dog walking crew to be family. Her family works on mutual respect, love and trust, which they find through education, motivations, and team work.
