I have been a dog lover my whole life and always dreamt of finding a career where I could spend all of my time around them. Though I was never able to have my own dog as a child (we had some extensively trained cats instead), I took every opportunity that I could to spend time with dogs; I walked neighbour's dogs and volunteered at a local dog rescue. I would have loved to go on to study and work with dogs right after school, but I was unfortunately led to believe that there were no suitable career
opportunities involving a life dedicated to dogs, so it was suggested that I follow a secondary passion of mine; Art. Having completed a degree in History of Art (BA hons.), I very quickly realised that I could never be happy if I wasn't living a life surrounded by animals, so I quit my job and decided to do everything I could to make it in the dog world. Luckily, it turned out that my old school teachers were wrong, and for many years now I have been living a happy and successful life, dedicated to the animals I love!
While studying to become a dog trainer, I spent several years working within the dog walking and daycare industry, working with hundreds of different dogs and learning about the vast variety of breed types and individual personalities that dogs have to offer.
I worked at Buddies Doggy Daycare for over 5 years, starting as a daycare assistant before being promoted to Assistant Daycare Manager and eventually becoming their Boarding and Administration Manager. Due to the many amazing years I spent at Buddies, I am very happy to now be working in partnership with them and all of the dogs that I know and love so much, as well as now also working with my good friends at Capital Dog Care.
Having run my own training company for a few years now, I can't imagine a different life, and love being able to help improve the lives of dogs and their owners on a daily basis.
