Our pets are family and they should be taken care of as such. We treat all patients as if they are part of our family and extend our arms to owners who are looking for a family-oriented, professional team to give your furry friends the best care possible. You can expect friendly and compassionate service catered to your dog’s unique needs.

Canine rehabilitation is an emerging field that recognizes dogs, just like people, can benefit from a specific exercise program and other therapeutic modalities that decrease pain, improve fitness, and restore functioning. Although physical rehabilitation is not a cure for your dog’s long-term conditions, our services can help in decreasing unwanted symptoms and improving your dog’s overall quality of life.

The face behind the business! Marissa is Prince George born and raised, she started as a receptionist at Murdoch Veterinary Clinic in 2013 after completing the Veterinary Office Assistant program at Douglas College. She quickly realized she wanted to be more hands on with the animals and enrolled in Olds College and graduated in 2017 as a Registered Veterinary Technician.

While working at Murdoch Veterinary Clinic Marissa came across many pets that suffered from anxiety and aggression. These patients quickly became her favourite – her favourite part about the job is the feeling she gets when she can gain the trust of one of these special dogs. This led Marissa to her next adventure: Pet Tech on the Run. She developed a one-woman mobile business where she can provide the care that pets need in the comfort of their own home.

After 3 years of a successful mobile business she has decided to keep on going! In 2020 Marissa completed the Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner Program at the University of Tennessee and immediately went to work on developing Stretch & Fetch Rehab to bring Prince George a MUCH NEEDED new service!

In 2022 Marissa continued her education to become a Certified Canine Strength & Conditioning Coach and is excited to start developing custom fitness program for the dogs of Prince George!

In her spare time, she keeps up with a hectic schedule by mountain biking, travelling, hiking, camping, rock climbing, and cross country skiing.

Dr Marina Mann


Dr. Mann has always loved helping animals, and knew as a young girl that she wanted to be a veterinarian. She graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 2015, and has been practicing veterinary medicine in her hometown of Prince George ever since.

Marina started to take an interest in Canine Rehabilitation after her family’s pet dog, Sarge, needed surgery on both stifles (knees). Sarge had a long road to recovery and would have benefited from a rehabilitation service in Prince George but nothing was available at the time.

Throughout the past several years of practice, Dr. Mann has seen many patients, especially older dogs suffering from arthritis, and young dogs requiring surgery, that would greatly benefit from rehabilitation. She is partway through a rehabilitation certification program from the Canine Rehabilitation Institute, based out of Springfield Missouri, and is hoping to have completed her certification by the end of 2023. She is excited to join the Stretch and Fetch Team in the spring of 2023!

Caden Malcolm

Caden, born and raised in Prince George, started in the Veterinary industry as a receptionist for Murdoch Veterinary Clinic in 2015.

She soon realized she wanted to spend her time at home with her girls but missed being a part of the Veterinary industry. This led her to working from home for Stretch & Fetch Rehab taking care of their client communication, administrative duties and scheduling.

She loves spending time outdoors with her husband, two daughters and their heeler X, Meeka. Caden is loving her time being able to be home more while still fulfilling her passion for animals by being a part of Stretch & Fetch’s administrative team!
