About


Hi! My name is Hunter; I’m founder of Rain City Dogs, and run group hikes and boarding.

Being born in Vancouver and raised here and on the Sunshine Coast, I’ve had a passion for nature ingrained from day one. Despite being a city girl, I love nothing more than to leave the noise and concrete to smell the moss and hear little more than the wind through the trees.
My love of dogs started at a young age and seemingly came out of nowhere! My family always had cats (So. Many. Cats.) which meant I was an unlikely candidate to be such a lover of dogs. But I was always keen to make a canine friend anywhere I could!
After high school I explored different jobs trying to figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up. Dog walking was the first job I had that I was truly passionate about. I decided to go for it, and started school to become a certified trainer (2011, proof of certification available upon request) This was the same year I got Strummer, my Red Heeler. He’s been a beacon of love in my life ever since.
I’ve learned so much along the way, and each dog I meet seems to teach me something new about their behaviour, quirks, and souls. I’ve proudly dedicated my life to bettering the lives of every dog I meet, no matter what. My passion for good dog stewardship drives me every day. There’s no such thing as a bad dog in my books, just a dog who hasn’t yet found their way. My goal with Rain City Dogs is to help dogs and their people find that way, through love and leadership.
So that’s my story, I look forward to meeting you! I can’t wait to take your fur baby into my heart and care for them as if they were my own!
Hi There, I’m Lucian,
I was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, and moved to Vancouver to shake up my life and experience that west coast living. You can say animals have been a passion of mine since I was very young. Having over 21+ years of experience in the pet industry, from Pet Daycares to Pet Retail to even Veterinary work. You can say I have pretty much done it all. 
I’m so excited to be a part of the Rain City Family!
Hey! My name is Nick.
I’m a 4th generation vancouverite and animal enthusiast. (2 dogs, a bird and a dragon.) My family had dogs growing up and sparked my love for dogs. I believe good stewardship means you never stop learning about dog behavior and how to make their lives better, and am honored to be a part of the Rain City team to continue my education every day with your sweet pups. And obviously the dog kisses are a huge bonus!
