Curt Rayner grew up with sporting dogs, from german wirehairs, golden retrievers to wirehaired pointing griffons. Seeing the benefits of daily dog walking and socialization on the peninsula with his own dogs, and sensing he could help more pets and their owners, he decided to turn his passion into a full time affair, and started Wolf In Winter.
Living on the peninsula for more than 15 years, Curt’s life long dog handling experience and intuitive understanding of animal behaviour has developed into a deep appreciation of all breeds and how important our pets are to our lives.
As “Pack Leader” of the peninsula's premiere dog walking and training company, Curt works closely with his team to ensure the very best quality experience to our many happy clients.
