This is My Story
Walk in the Bark has been in business since November 2014, and is run solely by me, Natasha Kibbe. I
am a 26 year old dog lover turned business owner with a passion for hard work and great customer
I have a two and a half year old dog Decker; and he has inspired me to revolve my personal AND
professional life around dogs. I wanted a dog growing up but it wasn’t until I was 24 that my dream had
finally come true, and I welcomed him into my life. Upon bringing him home I realized quickly how
special he would be to me. If you’re reading this and have a dog (which I assume you do!) then I’m sure
you can relate how important the well-being of your dog is. I can confidently say that if you trust me
with walking your dog you will see that reflected in my work.
I am a believer that in order to have a balanced and happy dog that they need to understand that the
role of pack leader falls on their humans. I practice good leash manners on every walk, which means
dogs walk beside or behind me 90% of the time. I like to promote calm energy (waiting for an ‘ok’ before
eating, sitting before walking through doorways, and playing mentally stimulating games) in order for
the dog to have the best and safest experience.
The safety of your dog is important to me, which is why I am certified through St. John’s Ambulance in
Pet First Aid and CPR.
Dog walking makes up for half of my business, the other half is my online store that is dedicated to creating high quality pet accessories. Please check out my blog* for a detailed write up about the handmade products.
