About Us

Programming for those who take care of our pets.

We built BusyPaws to take care of those who take care of our pets by making their businesses a little easier to manage.

Canadian-based, our pets are no strangers to lined boots, little parkas, walks in Winnipeg fields or taking in Revelstoke vistas.

Our Experience

Our team possesses experience across a range of industries and roles, with extensive knowledge in software and product development. Among our friends and family are several dog trainers whom we've had discussions about the software they all struggle to use and link together to operate their businesses.

Nathan Bertram

Nathan Bertram


Nathan is a lifelong entrepreneur, programmer and dog dad. After watching a dog trainer friend experience growing pains with her pet care business and struggling to juggle multiple software products + paper-based solutions all at once. He thought there must be a better way.

Unable to find an existing solution that checked all the boxes he was inspired to create modern pet care software built specifically for the unique needs of dog trainers. BusyPaws has been built with the belief that pet care professionals are better served spending less time managing their back office and more time doing what they are brilliant at.

When Nathan isn't building you will find him outside exploring all of what the outdoors has to offer.
