Anand Vishwanath, a Telecom Engineer, had taken a sabbatical in 2010 from his corporate life of 12+ years and started walking Dogs as an informal service, giving him the satisfaction of doing ‘something he was passionate about’. It was an extremely personalised service, where he himself would walk the dogs - sometimes covering over 100+ kms in a day to walk one, maybe 2 dogs! Demand surpassed supply, one thing led to another and Anand, after a bit of research on survival and sustainability, quit his corporate job for good and Anvis Inc. was born!

Although Anand had been associated with dogs (of various sizes, breeds and personalities) for over 10 decades in various spaces – Training, Behaviour modification, breeding, participating in various dog competitions, counselling pet parents etc., he realised the need to get formally trained under someone more experienced. Subsequently, he got certified as a behaviourist under the very experienced John Rogerson of ‘Northern Centre for Canine Behaviour, UK’.

Over the years, Anand has become one of the foremost pet experts in India, featuring in many Indian and International media articles and publications including BBC.

Currently Anand is owned by 4 ‘Anvis Mascots’ who live at the Pet Centre. Read more about Anand’s and Anvis’ story here.
