Hi, I'm Kate (BA HONS QTS)
Dogs have always featured strongly in my life. I grew up with dogs as pets, and throughout my adult life, I have owned and have experience of many different breeds, including rescue dogs. It has become clear to me that our lives are enriched by the companionship of our pets; the saying ‘dog is a man’s best friend’ has been well proven.
I resigned as an Assistant Head at a secondary school to retrain as a dog behaviour specialist and pursue my dream of opening my own business working with dogs and their owners. In addition to my dog walking, dog listening and boarding business, I am keen to take my work into schools. Throughout my teaching career, I have been interested in the emotional health and wellbeing of young people.
I believe that, based on a relationship of mutual respect, the unconditional love that dogs give us could also help young people with mental health, anxiety and confidence issues. I intend to develop this business to combine my love of working with children and dogs on a therapeutic basis. Watch this space for more details!
I pride myself on being organised, approachable and having an enthusiastic and positive approach to life. I am fully committed to helping clients to look after their pets whilst also guiding and enabling people to have the happiest life possible with their dogs

Hi, I'm Renata
Since a young girl I have always had a real passion for animals especially dogs. I thoroughly enjoy lovely long walks with my own dog Jack and I am so really looking forward to building relationships with your dogs too. There is nothing better than watching a group of dogs playing and enjoying a good walk.
My previous roles include being a nanny and personal assistant to two wonderful families in London for 10 years and I am also a qualified hair dresser.
I am an energetic and enthusiastic person who enjoys a challenge and achieving personal goals. I have excellent communicate skills, time keeping and a hardworking person and I can’t wait to meet you and your furry friends.
