Meet Our Staff

Elizabeth Herlihy
Partner | Canine Wellness & Nutrition

Elizabeth used to think she knew dogs. She grew up with a dog who survived a debilitating brain disease, has volunteered with several shelters across multiple organizations and even co-authored legislation to protect fighting dogs in Indiana. All her experience couldn’t help however when she adopted her reactive dog, Luna. Fortunately for Elizabeth, all her neighbors recommended the same trainer.

After Luna’s 9-Week training program ended, Jesse and Elizabeth continued to spend time together and the rest, as they say, is history. Now we like to think they’re the city’s best (only?) pup-oriented power couple: The Chicago Dog Whisperer and That Loud Blonde Gal Who Loves Dogs. In September of 2021, Elizabeth came to Canine Perspective full time to help run the now booming business Jesse has developed and grown. She is continuously impressed with the unique structure he created for all dogs, particularly the special ones like Luna who aren’t candidates for regular daycare.

Hoping to add more benefits for the CP pack, Elizabeth applied her passion for health and wellness to the ever-evolving field of canine nutrition and holistic alternatives. If you’ve seen the before and after pictures of Lexxi and Poncho or had a consultation with Elizabeth already, you can see how much her passion has paid off! Elizabeth will continue to offer complimentary wellness consultations for our pack into 2023 and work to grow our retail store here at the facility.

When she’s not hanging in the retail room or giving the daycare clients new treat samples, Elizabeth is cooking healthy meals for Jesse at home or buried in a good fantasy novel.

Happy Howl-idays, Pack!

A few of you already requested gift baskets from me after seeing a few during the holiday photoshoot so I decided to embrace the season of giving and make this month’s retail promo 25% OFF GIFT BAGS OR BASKETS!
//
I have both bags and baskets in stock, depending how big you’d like to make your gift. Select any item in stock in the retail room and it will be included in the 25% off promotion. I’ll have bows and everything cute as well to make your gift truly special.
//
Not sending the gift to far away friends or family? Frozen items can be included!
//
Need to ship your gift? We can include the cost of shipping on your invoice and send out your package for you via UPS. I send gifts to family and friends regularly so I’ll package up something safe and pretty to ship out of state too, if you’d like.
//
Not sure which goodies to include to spoil your loved ones? Not a problem! I’m happy to put together gift baskets based on budget. Shoot me an email and we can collaborate on the perfect gift.
//
You’re always welcome to spoil your own pup with something this holiday season too! “Gift basket” counts as any purchase of three or more different SKUs. For my regular shoppers, feel free to take advantage of the discount and grab some cute holiday bags to use on your own.

We’re back with another KENNEL COUGH post!
//
A few simple DO’s and DONT’S for the pack members who don’t have time to watch my videos or stories…since Jesse tells me I talk too much! 🤣
//
The big one here that I mentioned yesterday is the water bowl one. I know it seems so cute and fun. And our wonderful small businesses are adorable for putting out treats and water for the neighborhood pups but these things are mega spreaders for disease. Just stay away.
//
And it’s always a good reminder to be careful who you socialize with. The local park or dog park does not have the same regulations as a daycare or grooming facility. You never know who could show up – and that goes not only for health but for safety!

It’s Thanksgiving month (already? Yikes!) so we’re tailoring this month’s retail promo to all the turkey lovers!
//
I got a whole box of THE FEAST flavor No Hide chews to celebrate fall and they can be yours with any purchase from the retail store all month long.
//
Need some food? Great, have a chew.
//
Low on treats? Grab a bag and get a chew to bring home as well.
//
Replenishing your stock of goat’s milk? You guessed it, we’ll throw a chew into the bag as well.
//
No limit to number of purchases this month and if you have a multi-dog home I’ll include a chew for everyone. Place your orders online, stop by in person, or shoot us an email with what you’d like.

Our dear friend @goodgirlmoro came for a visit and gosh were we impressed with her mom’s meal prepping skills!
//
Moro has some very impressive and healthy bowls, feel free to take some notes. I’m seeing fruits, dehydrated pieces, even some kind of supplement or probiotic powder. But more importantly, LOOK HOW NICELY HER MEALS ARE BAGGED AND LABELED!
//
Y’all this is IT right here! Wow! You do not have to skimp on health or nutrition when your dog goes on vacation.
//
DM or email for all your nutrition and wellness needs or to set up a consultation to be more like MORO!

This week’s Wednesday Wisdom isn’t so much “wisdom” as something I’ve said multiple times. Speaks for itself, really.

Who else?! 😜

Input and output, Pack!
//
What you put in is always what you get out. That's just a good rule for life so manifest that positivity, y’all! But the same can absolutely be said when it comes to diet.
//
If you’ve already had a wellness consultation with me then you know one of the big things I ask you to do it keep a “poop diary” to monitor stool changes through any food transition.
//
We can learn a LOT about our dogs’ health just from their poop. From activity level to dehydration, even early warning signs of illness, I can tell you quite a bit about a dog just based on a few stool samples.
//
Poop is waste. Thinking logically, that means it’s what your dog’s body isn’t using. That’s why kibble-fed dogs have larger poops: there’s more fillers that frankly their bodies don’t need so it’s just a pass through. Even brand changes or adding healthy toppers can help your dog; you don’t have to go completely raw to improve the quality of poops you pick up.
//
I don’t like to brag but I can “three dogs, one bag” since my dogs eat raw 🤣. So if that speaks to you, let me know and we can talk about the safest and best way to transiton your dog’s diet.
