Dog Inspiring Kindness- one paw at a time
Orange Dog and Team Toby Team Up to Save Lives. Team Toby is on a mission to build a kinder Canada one paw at a time through its PAWS Across Canada tour, commencing May 2014. Joining the Team Toby mission is Orange Dog Foundation.
While enjoying the tour and community visits Team Toby will video and document a dog friendly travel and tourist adventure by visiting attractions, gathering local stories, and engaging community facts. They will be participating in these adventures with iconic teaching partner Toby, a Chesapeake Bay Retriever and Team Toby spokes pup.
Toby will also be documenting his perspective of this awe inspiring adventure on his own Go Pro camera. The world will see life as Toby sees it.
Each of Team Toby’s favorite places will be awarded the Toby Tested Toby Approved “award”. Hammond's weekly radio show, PAWSitive Radio will be aired live daily from the communities, attractions, and destinations accompanied by their video blog and social media sites. "And at the end of all of this…we have a DOGumentary– it’s people, places and stories as seen by us…. And Toby the dog! This will set the stage for PAWS Across North America," says Hammond.
Orange Dog’s partnership on this project is the perfect fit. Charmaine Hammond, professional speaker, award winning author and President of Team Toby states “Orange Dog has saved the lives of many dogs, has helped rescue organizations and shelters, and we are delighted to have Orange Dog as a Partner on the Team Toby Tour. We know full well that collaboration and partnership is what it takes to make global change.”
The Orange Dog is the brainchild of Edmonton businesswoman and philanthropist, Jan Folk. As a friend and generous donor to numerous animal welfare charities, Jan leapt at the idea of a business purpose built to help animals in need. “Jan’s passion for helping animal related projects has made a big difference in North America. Together we CAN make a difference.”
Charmaine Hammond is a professional speaker, author of several books in the Toby series including On Toby's Terms, Toby the Pet Therapy Dog Says Be a Buddy Not a Bully, and, Toby the Pet Therapy Dog and His Hospital Friends.
