The President and founder of BFF, Michael began the company in 2016 when he opened our first Dog Daycare on College Street in downtown Toronto. Shortly following Toronto's success, Michael moved to beautiful Prince Edward County with his lovely wife Marion and two small children where they built their one-of-a-kind pet vacation facility BFF, Prince Edward County! (One of only 5 companies nominated by the PEC Chamber of Commerce for Business of Year 2021!)
Michael graduated from Western University with a degree in Statistics & Sociology, and enjoyed a successful career in the finance space before leaving it all behind to pursue his life long dream of caring for animals.
As an experienced dog trainer, and professional pet care provider, Michael continues to stay directly engaged with our amazing clients and despite the fabulous growth and success BFF has enjoyed, Michael still finds the most joy in his moments hiking & playing with the incredible puppers lucky enough to vacation at BFF, PEC.
Michael now resides and operates BFF from his home in Toronto full time, but of course still visits and helps out regularly at the "Ranch" in the County.
A consistent fan-favourite, Rising Star Award Winner, and former leader of our Toronto Dog Walking team, Ford is now the Manager of Operations at BFF, PEC where he lives full-time and ensures every pupper vacationing remains safe, engaged, and having a blast!
Ford is one of the kindest, happiest, and most considerate people we know and his incredibly calm and comforting energy can put even the most hesitant pups instantly at ease. If there is a pup-whisper in Toronto or PEC, his name is Ford!
Clients regularly told us their pups couldn't wait to go with Ford when he was working in Toronto, and now they tell us their pups can't bear to leave him in PEC. If we're certain of anything, it's that pups...love...Ford!
