Wilke Walks was born out of Nicky’s love for dogs and wanting to improve their lives on a micro and macro level. Nicky was inspired to launch Wilke Walks after adopting her own dog with anxiety and reactivity in 2015 from the SPCA and was hard pressed to find any ethical services tailored to reactive dogs. Charlie is an energetic German Shepard & Husky mix, her inspiration and partner in crime. With all her previous years of dog care experience,  she was certain she knew everything there was to know about dogs. Soon after adopting Charlie, she realized she had a lot to learn. And so she began her journey of training and education to live her mission of helping dogs thrive.
