Hi, I'm Mama France
I'm the crazy dog lover that founded Valley Mastiff Rescue in 2005. I just happen to also be the maid, cook, driver, nurse, cleaning lady, walker, groomer to these dogs !
One of my happy moments was being certified FDM, an applied ethology family dog mediation professional. Our role as a rescue is to help dog lovers to fully understand their dogs and form truly authentic relationships with them.
I earned a diploma from the Ministère de l'Éducation du Québec in animal care. This adds to my 2 certificates in Canine Nutrition. It was important to me to be certified in Pet First Aid & Pet CPR to be able to respond to emergencies.
One thing I value is education, so I teach responsible dog ownership, introduction to private rescues and dog bite prevention. We all have to work together to see positive changes in the dog world.
I am fully bilingual.
