My name is Uta and I live with my husband, and our black Labrador Retriever, Buddy, in the Scarborough Bluffs area of Toronto, not far from Lake Ontario. I was born and raised in Germany and moved to this wonderful country in 2010. Buddy came into our life when he was about one year young. He was found as a stray with frost bite and strangulation marks, but luckily saved by a rescue organization. He is a handful, but we fell in love at first sight.
Being a first time dog owner, I had to learn a lot. And I had to make mistakes of course. I believed every word our Vet was saying and Buddy got ALL shots recommended and also chemical flea and tick medication. After reading and researching, I found out that that wasn't the right way to go for us. Buddy was still a tick collector, so I looked for a natural solution. I found EM collars in Germany (which apparently were super popular for years already) and got it shipped over. Worth a try, I thought (having different options in mind already, if that wouldn't work). But, Buddy stopped being a tick magnet! How awesome, I thought! That's how my little business started. I wanted people here in North America having the chance to try another natural option for tick prevention as well.
My passion for Paracord braiding was the result out of unsuccessful searches for colourful, but also durable dog collars and leashes. I had all the cord here and why not try it. And here we are now...
Paracord gives you endless options and it's so much fun to play with patterns and colours.
Other than that, I am just a crazy dog lady, I would say. I am interested about everything dog related, and I'm still learning...
Thanks for reading!
