I created NatCVPM to raise awareness for my life's mission: the importance of leash etiquette. I'm a Fear Free Certified Veterinary Practice manager with a passion to advocate for the emotional well-being of animals.
After being attacked by an off-leash dog multiple times, my furbaby, Sniff, became distrustful of other dogs. That's when my passion turned to action and created an educational flyer, "Leash Etiquette: Why it Matters."
I was invited to speak about this and Fear Free Certified Practices at a worldwide veterinary conference, where my Leash Etiquette flyer won a silver VETTY Award celebrating excellence in animal health marketing.
While walking Sniff and experiencing extreme anxiety from seeing frequent off-leash dogs, I decided more action was necessary and created these t-shirts. Not all dogs like to say hello and that's ok.
