Our story tells it all ...
Our beloved Pug, Lulu, joined our family in 2008. We were sad every morning when we had to leave her home alone and go to work at office jobs that we didn’t love. We recognized a career opportunity here that could make us really happy so a few months later we decided to start our own dog walking business. This allowed us to spend more time with Lulu and also create the kind of dog walking service we were looking for and couldn’t find – dependable service delivered with enthusiasm and professionalism. Our philosophy is simple – we’ll treat your cherished pup the way we would want someone to treat Lulu, who we unabashedly spoil all day every day! We think of what we would want from a dog walker and that’s what we do.

Lulu the Pug was the inspiration for Me You and Lu.
Lulu hails from Montreal and exceptional lineage. Her parents, Ch. Kendoric’s Riversong Mulroney and Ch. Ivanwold Miss Destiny, were champion show dogs.
Lulu is a natural clown with a big personality. She’s a spoiled girl and considers herself a princess. She thinks Pugs should be plump and she’s quite proud of her squishy rolls. She works hard on her figure by eating all her meals and constantly demanding treats. She loves cuddles, belly rubs, napping, laying in the sunshine, swimming, watching football games and playing with kids.
Lulu has perfected the art of getting everything she wants while also making time to sleep 21 hours a day! Lulu definitely sums up the pug saying multum in parvo (much in little)!
One of Jeff’s passions is dogs. In 2009 it was his idea to turn his passion into his job and Jeff founded Me You and Lu.
After nine years walking dogs, Jeff decided to hang up his leashes and leave the business to pursue other interests.
We specialize in brachycephalic breeds.
Having been owned by a Pug for over a decade, we consider ourselves experts when it comes to brachycephalic breeds. Brachycephalic means “shortened head” and refers to the short nose and flat face of dogs like Pugs, Shih Tzus and Shar-Peis. Other brachycephalic breeds include Boston Terriers, English Bulldogs, French Bulldogs, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Pekinese and English Mastiffs.
Unlike most dogs with upper airways that enable air to pass freely through the trachea, the anatomy of these flat faced dogs can present issues and make clear, easy breathing difficult. Additionally, since dogs use panting to cool down, brachycephalic dogs struggle in hot weather because they can’t draw in enough air to cool their body.
We take the following precautions when walking brachycephalic dogs:
- Careful monitoring in the heat.
- Use a harness insead of a collar.
- Watch out for changes in snorting.
- Avoid stress.
- Watch for branches that can damage their bulging eyes.
