About Le Petite Canine LLC
Le Petite Canine is a mother and daughter team providing safety centered dog care since 2014.
We provide dog sitting services for our local community and sell our hand-made products online. Our team designs and creates dog collars, bow-ties and leashes that are then packaged with our own paws and shipped to you with the expectation that you will be thrilled with our brand and quality service.
At a very early age I decided that dogs gave me commitment. There was no way I could ever let a dog down. Reading, learning and writing about dogs steered my passion to becoming an educated author and artist. In my college days I studied design and how to teach kids about art until ultimately I received a master’s degree. Pushing that degree to good use, I taught high schoolers for just shy of twenty years until one day my life happily went back to the dogs. Giving collars to shelter dogs warms my heart.
Miss Winn-Dixie is a purebred West Highland White Terrier and very conscious of this fact. She is usually found perched near the window (almost catlike!) spotting and grumbling about the tiny chipmunks scurrying under our porch. She enjoys modeling our collar designs and testing the leashes out on walks as long as it’s not too hot outdoors.
Dog-Sitter & JR. Designer
My dog Winn-Dixie is the sparkle in my day. She has been my best friend since we brought her home when I was 10 years old. She is sometimes jealous of the dogs we walk, but usually she is just curious about them. Winn-Dixie and I work on agility training together. She is absolutely adorable when she jumps over the hurdles Westie style. I enjoy getting to know each of our dog clients and I certainly have my favorites. Helping rescue dogs recieve collars thru our boutique is the sweetest part of being a good dog-sitter.
Host With the Most
Mr. T-Bone is a “Chug”, part Pug, part Chihuahua and a bit of Jack Russel. This combination of breeding makes for a dandy little dog. The chap has a proverbial habit of sleeping all day in the warmest spot he can find even if this spot will trip passersby. He has no interest in wearing our collar designs or even acknowledging them, and prefers to lie about the house stark-naked.
