About Emma

Having had the privilege to grow up in the countryside with access to the great outdoors my parents always encouraged an active lifestyle and I was lucky enough to enjoy this with a 4 legged companion - a lovely cocker spaniel named Willow.
I have always had an interest in all animals and have had experience with small pets - hamsters, rabbits and guinea pigs as well as both cats and dogs.
A family member is an employee at a small animal sanctuary and owns 2 Staffordshire Bull Terriers herself. Over the years I have gained much valuable experience and knowledge from visits to the shelter and my general curiosity in asking questions with regards to training and care for dogs in particular.
I took a gap year before attending University in which I took a job as a cleaner. This also involved other duties such as animal care and I would regularly walk several clients dogs and feed animals when clients were away. This has also extended to mucking out horses.

Please do get in touch to discuss any requirements further. Many thanks :)

    Lily, our border collie cross, has just returned from a very happy and fun week with Emma. Emma is really down to earth, considerate and great with dogs. Lily loved her and I really think she is missing her. She hass had some great energetic walks and it was great to see pictures that Emma sent of Lily running happily after sticks, etc. Communications were frequent and easy so we could totally relax. I felt reassured that Lily was in safe, caring hands. We're glad to have found someone who we feel we can leave Lily with without any concerns. Thank you Emma, you've been brilliant.

    A young husky can be quite a handful and I was concerned that Emma would have her work cut out for her. I got back a happy dog and an invitation for Shadow to return. I can't be more pleased.

    Very friendly, helpful dogbuddy. Our 2 springers were relaxed and happy when we collected them. Would definitely use again. Many thanks Emma.
