This is our current rescue dog, Bracken. We brought him home on 15 December 2014 when he was thought to be about 18 months old.
I adopted Wrink in 2007 when she was 3 and a half. She did not cope in the kennels at Wood Green Animal Shelters so I fostered her and couldn't give her back! Ollie was an ex racer who my husband adopted when he was 4. The two dogs met before my husband and I did because, coincidentally, they went to the same dog sitter!
My professional experience of working with dogs over more than a decade includes: working in dog rescue, handling and caring for all types of dogs and assessing them for re-homing, learning about dog body language, calming signals, and behaviour; I also worked as a dog walker/pet sitter for PetPals in London. My previous dogs were a rescue rottweiler and an ex-racing greyhound. We now have another rescue dog Bracken. Being a dog owner myself I know how important it is to find the right care for your pet and I aim to take care of my customers dogs as I would my own.
I'm not a professional trainer, but my training ethos is of modern, positive reinforcement training (reward based training - no physical force or dominance theory techniques).
The area I cover is the city of Cambridge, UK.
I am DBS checked and fully insured.
