She is God’s gift to us or should I say a Dogs gift to us.Tracy began her career with Delriques in Jan 2010, but she’s had a lifelong love affair with dogs.She was guided to us by Kaani,a stray dog that she use to feed.One day this dog went missing from her society and landed outside our gate and I began feeding her” .Tracy came in search for her and it was love at first sight .I could see the compassion she had for this stray and knew at once I could not let her go ,hence I offered her a job ,And now she is Mrs.Henriques .Her passion for dogs and attention to detail makes her an important asset as a member of the kennel.
Her personal approach with clients and deep compassion for animals brings the right combination to create the home-away-from-home we strive to offer our canine guests. Tracy knows each dog’s likes and dislikes as well as their owners’ concerns. Her passion for dogs shines and her organizational skills in managing their care stands out.
I came from totally ‘ground zero’ from a training perspective. I felt that Delano addressed my specific needs and yet offered a scope of training tips and techniques that allowed the more advanced trainers to practice or introduce a new behavior without having them feel as though the ‘newbies’ were ‘holding them up.
I got a stray 6 month yr old puppy in my house and after some we started noticing her dominating behaviour which was not acceptable.Delano’s one session brought such a drastic difference in my dogs behaviour that now we do not find any difficulty handeling her… thanks Delano for advice otherwise my dog would have been on streets today
I think I am one of the privileged few who have not only had the good fortune of having their dogs looked after and trained by Delano and Tracy but also been extremely lucky to be able to spend time at Delriques Kennels and observe their care and maintenance of not only their own dogs but all dogs being kennelled and looked after by them. Delano’s interaction with the dogs is based on solid, traditional principles of love and respect along with a good understanding of dog behaviour and the science of correction. His own values and respect for live are highly evident in his interaction with animals and it is highly commendable to see that his own dogs, including his Rottweilers are of highly pleasant and amicable temperaments just the way they should be. Tracy’s natural affection and maternal warmth make her presence a real blessing for all the tail-waggers at Delriques Kennels, truly making it a home away from home!! You can actually see their dogs glowing with love n happiness it’s such a beautiful and reassuring sight :o) I wish Delano and Tracy every success in their endeavours and pray that they expand their services well beyond Mumbai so many more of us can benefit from their presence, learn from their own knowledge and experiences, and spread the message of responsible ownership and care! Warmest wishes, Devna :o)
