Along with the warm-ups, lessons and intense hours of rehearsal, a big part of Luca Pisaroni’s career involves two creatures with four legs and wagging tails.

The bass baritone’s two dogs, Lenny, a five-year-old golden retriever, and Tristan, a six-and-a-half-year-old dachshund, travel with their master around the world.

“My relationship with them is very close to my singing career,” the bass baritone says one afternoon before a rehearsal of Maometto II, the final opera in the Canadian Opera Company’s 2015-16 season, opening April 29 and featuring Pisaroni in the title role. “This is a job that is based on things that we cannot really touch and to have something to do that is actually physical, like taking them for a walk, is the most healing thing for me.”
