Phil and I are both qualified and experienced 6th Form teachers and examiners, and are fully CRB checked. However, now we are fortunate enough to be indulging our real passion in life – working entirely with dogs!
I was brought up with family dogs and we have had our own dogs for 15 years now (Border Collies, Labrador Crosses and German Shepherds), including breeding a litter of puppies. I have worked for my local branch of a large, national animal rescue as a volunteer Dog Socialiser, so I am experienced in handling a wide variety of breeds. I have also worked for the well-regarded local dog walking firm, Pompey Pet Nannies. Additionally, I’ve written and had many articles published on dogs, their behavior, health and welfare, both locally and nationally.
