I've always been an animal lover, as soon as I could work with them I have. From the age of 11 I worked at a stables for the following 3 years. I then studied and earnt a BTEC Level 2 Diploma in Animal Care at Plumpton college, this was a great experience and a lot of fun for me as I got to work with a wide range of animals, varying from lizards and snakes to rabbits and chinchillas.
Last year, I gained a City and Guilds Level 2 Certificate for Dog Grooming and am currently studying for my Level 3 at Hadlow College.
Also, Working at a pet shop for 3 years gave me more experience around dogs (fitting harnesses/coats, helping owners with every day to day needs, providing insight on the right foods) or even just for a cuddle! I currently have one dog, a Pomeranian who is seven years old. Also, I have looked after dogs before when friends have gone away so my animals are quite used to passing friends!
I live 5 minutes away from various large, open fields and know the area very well, also I am a short drive away from the Sussex downs which is ideal for long walks. I am very passionate about dogs and would love the opportunity to meet and look after others.
