How The Fairies Came To Be

There is more to the Fairy Dog Mama than just a caring heart!

Founder, Professional Dog Walker, Professional House Sitter & Operator

Courtney Faulkner

Fairy Dog Mama was founded by Courtney Faulkner in 2016 with the goal of creating a professional and accountable dog walking company for West Vancouver and the North Shore. Courtney’s career in the pet care industry started in 2013 while working at a positive reinforcement based daycare in North Vancouver and found working with dogs that had physical, mental, and emotional difficulties super rewarding. This led to the realization that there was a need for better care of pets in their homes and on the trail.

Our History

& Dogs


Courtney Faulkner, the Founder and Operator of Fairy Dog Mama began working in the pet care industry in 2013. She was working at a positive reinforcement based daycare in North Vancouver and found working with dogs that had physical, mental, and emotional difficulties very rewarding.

After getting to know these dogs and their families from the daycare, Courtney soon discovered that there was a need for better care for these animals in their homes, and on the trails. She began providing private walks and live-in care for the dogs she had cared for in the Daycare, and she soon founded the Fairy Dog Mama in 2016.

The Fairy Dog Mama began to expand from North Vancouver to West Vancouver. By only servicing North and West Vancouver, this allowed her to have a better amount of availability for her clients and service more dog families at once.

Still as of today, Courtney and Fairy Dog Mama is on a mission to provide all dogs a safe option for their specific needs, with a force free, compassionate approach, always.

Testimonials

The Fairy Dog Mama has been looking after my beloved Henrik for years now. She comes and stays in my house and takes excellent care of my dog and my home. Henrik is a very large, physically disabled dog and he has some anxiety and fear issues, so he’s not the easiest to look after. I feel so grateful knowing that I have someone so experienced and so loving taking care of him when I am away. I have no idea what we would do without her!

Our chihuahua Yoda has a big personality in a little body. He was a rescue from a puppy mill and possesses a number of personality quirks as a result. Courtney and her team were able to win Yoda over in short order. We have noticed a change in Yoda’s demeanour when we arrive home from work; he is more relaxed and happy.
Courtney and her team are very professional and clearly really love animals. We would absolutely recommend The Fairy Dog Mama services to others seeking kindness and care for their pets!

I highly recommend Courtney and her team. They are professional and work hard to understand each dogs individual nature and needs. I take comfort knowing they love and enjoy my dogs as much as I do, while providing a high standard of training which includes strong boundaries for safety and polite doggie manners. I use both the weekly dog walking service as well as the in home dog sitting service which are not only flexible and convenient but provide me with worry free options for my beloved doggies.
