The Canine Inc. Truck

Canine Inc. Truck

Canine Inc. provides safe, secure transportation for all of our four legged clients to and from any destination. We want all of our clients to know that while their dogs are in our care, we aren't putting them in a portable kennel, putting them in the back seat of a car, or any other situation that could potentially be dangerous during travel.

We have a dedicated Chevrolet Tahoe that is completely customized inside and out. From the front seats all the way to the back, the SUV has been completely customized for dog safety and travel. Everything has been removed and two large dog transportation units have been installed, along with a drawer and food compartment system.

The first system is called "a walk through" this is designed for dogs up to the size of a Great Dane! A non-spill water bucket has been installed with a soft floor for comfort. This space allows a dog to stand up and walk around, even lay down and go to sleep. This unit is bolted to the frame of the vehicle for the highest level of safety.

In the rear of the vehicle there is an additional kennel that can comfortably fit dogs up to 85lbs and also has a soft floor insert for comfort. Next to this kennel is our storage system. It is equipped with a drawer system, holding up to 300lbs of equipment. The system above is designed for transport of other items like food or other dog items.

The outside of the Canine Inc. SUV is wrapped to display all that we are and all that we do. We are excited about the opportunity to safety transport your pet anywhere they need to go.

Meet Sampson, the Pedigree Hero Dog!

Tuesday February 8, 2011

Mars petcare

Canine Inc. has an ongoing relationship with Mars Petcare (home to Pedigree and several other brands), the largest pet care company in the country. As part of this relationship, we have the pleasure of training the Pedigree Hero Dog. Sampson is a rescue that spent a few months in our facility before going in front of 78,000 Mars company associates worldwide as their Hero Dog. 

Here is some additional information about Sampson, who is now available for adoption:

About Me:


It is a long “tail” but I think it is worth sharing.  I was rescued from the North Central Shelter in Los Angles and was part of the PEDIGREE Hero campaign.  Following my brief moment of fame, I then moved to Nashville, TN in January 2010.  Not really knowing anyone or familiar with Nashville, I was put in a foster home with Bill Bryan.  He was so kind and took very good care of me while showing me the ropes.  He has said that I am a smart and energetic dog.  When he first got me, I did not know any commands and I didn’t sleep in my crate.  So, within six-month’s of Bill’s care I learned to sit, stay, heel and sleep in the crate at night and made lots of progress.   In full disclosure, I did have a tendency to bark in order to get attention and sometimes it would escalate, but that has been resolved.

In June 2010, I was adopted into a new family, but it wasn’t really a perfect fit.  Hearing of my situation, the PEDIGREE Brand responded with training support and I was fortunate to be put in the care of Canine Inc., which is one of the top in-kennel training facilities in the country.  I have spent the past three months going through intensive training with Jon Stolzer to relearn everything that I had been taught as well as new behavior. Now, I am ready to make a perfect companion and partner.

I love the outdoors, playing in the park with others, and am very loyal.

About My Mate(s):

I am looking for a home where I can get a lot of exercise and attention from an individual who can be my Alpha – someone that can be firm and consistent  - and has experience with raising/training dogs.  I can act tough, but I am also sensitive and do need a gentle hand.

One last thing, I want someone who can spend time together with me playing.  A person that can provide tough love, rules and boundaries that I will follow.
