TORI JOBIN – Co-Owner of HFX DOG
Tori has always had a love for animals having lived in the country and growing up in New Brunswick being surrounded by all types of animals all of her life. It only made sense that she eventually found her passion and opened up her own dog walking business.
She brings a wealth of knowledge to HFX Dog with having started her own dog walking business (The Halifax Dog Walker) over 10 years ago in Halifax, NS. She has worked with hundreds of dogs over the years as well building a reputable name for herself in the pet industry as dependable, reliable and trustworthy and being known as one of the best dog walkers in the city.
JILL MACDONALD – Co-Owner of HFX DOG
Jill spent many summers in Harvey, New Brunswick visiting her uncle who was a veterinarian. That is where she found her love of animals at a very young age. Helping her uncle on the farm, as well, helping him with his favorite show dogs, his beagles and whippets. She was fortunate to have the experience of helping her uncle deliver beagle puppies, something that she has never forgotten.
It was an easy decision to make after being in business management for 13 years to leave the business world behind and follow her true passion since she was a kid, to work with animals again. Jill joined Tori over 5 years ago as a dog walker and has loved every minute of it. She has also been an avid pet owner all of her life currently owning three rescue cats named Finnigan, Oliver and Gus and one rescue dog named Sophie.
