The Pack Leaders


Steve King

Steve King is the President and Founder of Community therapy Dogs Society.

Being a dog lover and avid reader, Steve recognized the possibility to help young kids in the community by replicating the "Reading with Rover" program that he had come across in 2011. So it was that CTDS became an official society in 2014.

Steve is active in the food bank community and a member of his local Lions Club.

A father to Clare, Lauren and his Labradoodle Finn, and grandfather to Caleb and Charlotte, Steve has a strong belief in giving back to the community.


Rob Bauhuis is the Secretary of the CTDS Board since 2017.  He and his family are now the proud owners of Wilson the Dog Amazing, a spirited bernadoodle, and Therapy Dog in training!  He is a great companion to Garrett the Wonder Cat.


Rob has a service heart stemming from his mom who was very active in Strathmore.  

He believes that community is built around volunteerism, CTDS being one of two passions - the other being Air Cadets.

Goals include continuing to serve CTDS, continuing to elevate the Sectretary position, and continue to bring his brand of wit and wisdom to the Board. 

Rob lives in Chestermere with wife Tracey, step-kids Matthieu and Ella, and pets Garrett and Wilson.
