Behind The Scene Sneak Peak


 "Tyke" was 6 weeks old when he entered my life; we were both unsure of what lay ahead of us. The one thing we did know, however, was that we had formed a partnership for life. In Tyke, I found my best friend, true self-reflection and my inspiration for “TyPaw”.  After graduating from McMaster University, Hamilton in the year 2009 with a Bachelors of Science degree in Mathematics, I considered myself extremely lucky to have found a job in Finance amidst the economic chaos. 8 years later I now believe finance was not a career I chose actively - it chose me!

About the Olde English Bulldogge:

In 1971 a man by the name of David Leavitt took it upon himself to cross breed the “traditional” English Bulldog with American Pitbull, Bullmastiff and American Bulldog to develop a rather sturdy, healthier and muscular breed today known as the Olde English Bulldogge.  In the 18th century when bull baiting was very common; Bulldogs were known for their fierce temperament to fight bulls. Over the years due to the popularity of the breed which lead to excessive inbreeding, the “modern”English Bulldogs face various health & breathing problems.  The Olde English Bulldogge is a far more athletic, stable and healthier breed. A healthy OEB can live for as long as 12-15 years! 

About Tyke:

Tyke is a 3.5 year old Olde English Bulldogge born and raised in Ontario. If I were to describe my baby in few words, I would say he is tenacious, resilient, extremely loyal, playful, caring, intelligent and loving. He is agile when needed, lazy if well exercised and most of all dependable even around children!  Very early on when Tyke was was barely 12 weeks old, I learned that he is hard-headed, persistent and domineering. Through months of training; mainly positive reinforcement, I tamed my oldie into a fine young well-behaved dog! I also learned that days my puppy felt “ignored” or not well exercised, I would come home to some form of destruction! From my wooden chair to my $200 Michael Kors shoes;  Tyke certainly has capacity to chew!
