Team Member and Animal Carer
I have loved and owned animals for my entire life, including dogs since I was 12 years of age. I am passionate about animal care, welfare and behaviour and have loved working with animals since I got my first job in a pet shop aged 14!
I have volunteered with dogs both in a rescue capacity (with Dogs Walk This Way charity) and a training setting (with the Company of Animals - Animal Behaviour Centre as a class assistant).
After University, I undertook training with the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers to become a qualified dog trainer. I loved the process of becoming qualified and gained so much insight into dog behaviour and learning.
I am always keen to learn as much as I can about dogs, and am looking forward to courses on puppy behaviour and canine aggression that I am attending this year.
I currently have two dogs of my own who keep me busy outside work! A Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppy recently joined my family and I am very much enjoying seeing her learning and her friendly personality emerging!
