WE HAVE TO MOVE!!!!                                                                          Sometimes life got very big surprises!!!                                                 Please share on Facebook and spread the word with friends and family .Thank you .                                                                                              Why we have to move by June 1st:

After renting this place for 19 years, we are forced to move as Abbotsford City by-laws only allows 1 house on a 5 acreage lot. My landlord has built his new house and we have to move by June 1st.        What we are looking for: We are looking for a 2 or 3 bedroom home on an acreage in the country with a shop or a barn.( would be a plus)

Who are we: We are a quiet and responsible middle-aged couple. We own 3 well-behaved Newfoudland dogs that are 100% potty trained, they do not chew or damage property. I am a self-employed full time working professional, certified dog trainer. I have owned this successful business for 26 years in Abbotsford and have built a strong clientele base here.

What to expect from us: As a long-term renter at the exact same address for 19 years (this home also had 3 different landlords) we understand that YOUR home is your security/investment and renting it out to a stranger with 3 fully trained dogs may create some concerns. However, I know that you will be pleasantly surprised and happy with having us as your long-term tenant. In fact by moving to our next rental home we plan on moving our business there with us, therefore you can imagine what we mean by long-term tenants.

I can provide landlord, individual and a ‘couple’ reference history all while having 3 beautiful trained dogs beside me. As a professional Dog Trainer (and a Vet Technician a few years ago) I have gained the loyalty and trust of not only my clients but also my landlords.

My partner is a full time Gas Fitter for over 35 years in the Fraser Valley; handy man too! So if there is any issues around the home – we more than likely to take care of it ourselves instead of involving or bothering our landlord. So you will definitely have peace of mind with us as we are hard-working/reliable/loyal tenants!

We both are Non-Smokers, clean, respectful and active individuals.

Reliable: We have always paid rent on time, never had a cheque that bounced.

Clean: Your house is our home and we treat it like it is too. Therefore, it is important to us that we are mindful and keep the house and yard cleanly maintained at all times.

Community: We like a quiet place to live, we do not have parties as self-employment takes up much of our time! We are very respectful of our environment especially our neighbors, therefore we do not let our dogs bark uncontrollably. We stop the barking and train accordingly.

Rental rate that we are looking for: Ready to pay $2200 -$3000 per month.

“Dear Mom and Dad,


You got tired of me and took me to the shelter. They were overcrowded and I drew an unlucky number. I am in a black plastic bag in a landfill now. Some other puppy will get the barely used leash you left. My collar was dirty and too small, but the lady took it off before she sent me to the Rainbow Bridge .

Would I still be at home if I hadn’t chewed your shoe? I didn’t know what it was, but it was leather, and it was on the floor. I was just playing. You forgot to get puppy toys.

Would I still be at home if I had been housebroken? Rubbing my nose in what I did only made me ashamed that I had to go at all. There are books and professional dog trainers  that would have taught you how to teach me to go to the door.

Would I still be at home if I hadn’t barked? I was only saying, “I’m scared, I’m lonely, I’m here, I’m here! I want to be your best friend.”

Would I still be at home if I had made you happy? Hitting me didn’t make me learn how.

Would I still be at home if you had taken the time to care for me and to teach manners to me? You didn’t pay attention to me after the first week or so, but I spent all my time waiting for you to love me.



This is WHY puppy class level 1 is SO IMPORTANT!
