Amber Roy - Owner

Amber Roy

The Woman Behind it All!

Hello fellow animal lover! My name is Amber and I am the woman behind Black Collar Society. I am Customer Service, Human Resources, Management.. I do it all! But most of all, I love spending time with our pups. I was born and raised in the beautiful province of British Columbia with my mother, stepfather and two younger siblings. Later moving to Alberta to be with my Dad. I grew up with cats and dogs alike over the years.. My Mom the proud owner of two Shih Tzu’s (Skittles and Oreo) and a Chihuahua-Shih Tzu-Terrier (Caramela). Recently my Dad took his dream dog home. Jake is a long haired black and tan Shiba Inu, and I enjoy helping my Dad train and raise his pup.

Outside of Black Collar Society, I have a passion for design, fashion, reading, travel, food and fitness. I dream of exploring the world one country at a time, and taking in everything it has to offer me.

I began Black Collar Society as a means to get my “puppy fix”. Although I’m completely smitten with animals, I do not yet have any of my own. Which means I have much more love to give to the animals that are already in my care (primarily cats and dogs). I recently began fostering dogs through AARCS, and am so excited to be able to give these pets the loving temporary homes they deserve.

I love each and every pet in their own unique way and my love is not size specific. I would be just as happy to walk a Great Dane as I would a Yorkshire Terrier. Their unconditional love and positive energy are contagious and they bring a smile to my face each and every day. As an extremely active individual, I love being able to spend my days in the gorgeous outdoors alongside furry four legged companions. At the risk of sounding cheesy; it is truly a privilege to be able to work with animals.

Thank you so much for taking the time to consider Black Collar Society as your pet care service provider and specialist (and for reading my super exciting autobiography). I would love the opportunity to schedule a meet + greet with you and your companion, so that we can start a new adventure together! Please feel free to browse the website to learn more about the services we offer, or visit the contact page to schedule a walk today!


Your pet loving friend,



Karolina Lichota

Mobile Services Team Leader

My name is Karolina, but I usually go by Karo! Originally from Poland, I moved to Canada to be closer to my brother, Marcin. I’ve always loved dogs, and as we were unable to have any back home, this job was the perfect way for me to make up some cuddle and playtime! Never could I have imagined a better job than spending my days out with all these dogs, each one with their own personality, they make every day fun and exciting.


When I am not out with your dogs at the park, I spend my days roller blading around Calgary, exploring Canada, and of course shopping! After a long day of walking dogs and plenty of exercise there is nothing I’d rather do than curl up on the couch with some good food, ice cream, and watch some of my favourite movies. If you are in North Calgary looking for the best dog walker to tire out our pup, you have found her!


I can’t wait to meet you and your four legged friend, check out our contact page and send us an email, or if you’re already sold you can register on our home page!

Pet Care Specialist + In-Home Pet Sitter

My name is Cassie and I am a Pet Care Specialist, taking care of all your private walks and visits!

A recent transplant to Calgary, I couldn’t be happier to be part of the Black Collar Team, providing your pets with the best of care, and of course love!

I spent my last few months living in the ocean, well basically, I lived in Tofino, BC. If I wasn’t cruising around the island with my boyfriend, I was taking on some of the best waves in the world. My love for the outdoors hasn’t faded since my move to Calgary, I couldn’t have asked for a better opportunity than taking care of your pets, whether it be a mid-day pee break or a private walk, I’ve got you covered.

When I am not visiting your dogs during the day, I am spending time down at our Hotel location taking care of the awesome pack that is at the daycare! Always down to spend another day out with the dogs, if you are looking for some help with your pup (or kitty) I am the girl for the job!

Kelly Griffin

Pet Care Specialist + In-Home Pet Sitter

My name is Kelly and I am a Pet Care Specialist and In-Home Sitter at Black Collar Society.

I moved to Calgary 2 years ago from Quebec with my boyfriend in hopes of starting a new adventure. I fell in love with the mountains and spend almost every weekend I can there. I also spend my spare time painting and photographing nature. I have also fostered kittens and cats for the past 10 months and found homes for every single beautiful animal! It is such an amazing experience to know that these babes are going to spend the rest of their lives in very loving homes. It can be tough sometimes to see them go but I know they will be happy and spoiled in their new homes.

I may be biased but hanging out with dogs all day is probably the best job ever. I wake up every morning with anticipation to pick up all your pups and play at the park with them!
