MEET CHANTELLE - CCC OWNER, OPERATOR & DOG LOVER

Hi!  My name is Chantelle Marcotte and I am the owner and operator of Canine Cuddles n’ Care. I started out my business in 2014 while living in Grimsby with my dogs – a Labrador Retriever and a Staffordshire Bull Terrier.  Sadly, Shadow (the Lab) crossed the Rainbow Bridge in September 2015 soon after he turned 13 years old.  He is greatly missed but he can now eternally run in the woods and flush out the birds, which he loved.  My beloved Darquise (the Staffie) also crossed the Rainbow Bridge in July 2017, one month shy of her 13th birthday.  She can forever play fetch with her treasured blue ball. She is missed tremendously.  

I currently live in Hamilton with Ilsa, a feisty calico cat.  She was rescued around 6 weeks old from a construction site in Grimsby.  A dog will complete my little family when the time is right.  

After working as a Child and Youth Worker for 17 years with street-involved/homeless youth, I decided that I was ready to forge a new path and I knew that it would be with my other passion, which is dogs.  I love all animals, but dogs just have the key to my heart. Training my dogs and working with other dogs came very naturally as I was able to transfer many skills from the child and youth field, which hold some of the same type of concepts for guiding growth and behaviour.  

A third passion of mine has become off roading in my Jeep. It’s so exhilarating! You may see a mud-covered Jeep around town if I’ve spent a day on the trails with other off roading enthusiasts.  If you see me around feel free to say hi!

I named my business “Canine Cuddles n’ Care” with careful thought…about my dogs.  If I were to have someone take care of my dogs in my absence, the priority, other than their obvious primary needs, would be to give them cuddles.  Cuddle-time, or ‘cuddlies’ as I call it, was very important to my dogs, especially my sensitive Staffie.  

I know my fur-kids miss me when I am not home, and I know your fur-kids miss you.  I will provide your dog with the same care and love that I give my animal family.  That I can guarantee.

    With very little notice, Chantelle agreed to walk my two dogs while my husband was away. She was very punctual, professional, and most importantly, my dogs loved her!

    I knew I would hire her again when Jessie rolled over on her back for a belly rub when Chantelle arrived. My dogs are family, I don't trust them with just anybody, but Chantelle earned my trust and the Puffer dogs will definitely be repeat customers!

    Amazing!!! We love Canine Cuddles n' Care & so does our Doberman Dexter! Even since Chantelle Marcotte started walking our Dexter he has stopped having accidents. He's also calmer. Highly recommend them!
