My little old dog: A heart-beat at my feet.
I hold a professional qualification from the Academy of Dog Training & Behaviour (ADTB) and have completed courses in both Dog on Dog Aggression with the Cambridge Institute of Dog Behaviour & Training (CIDBT) and First Aid for Dogs with Animal Aiders.
I am a lifelong dog addict and have the reputation as the “mad dog lady” !! My inspiration for Creche was my beautiful lab/GSD cross rescue dog called Tilly who we we sadly lost in 2021. She will always remain the orginal Waggy Dog.
It has been a passion and ambition of mine to work with dogs, so by realising an opportunity the concept of The Waggy Dog Crèche was born.
From a young age I have always known I wanted to work with animals. I spend all my spare time walking my dogs or at the stables I learnt to ride at and now keep my horse there. I’ve always had pets and currently have a budgie, a greyhound and 2 crazy spaniels! Most of you will have met (or heard) my sprocker spaniel Hetty!
I first came to the Waggy Dog Creche in 2017 as a work placement for a year and became the Groomer in September 2018 and I have loved every second of it! I completed my level 3 extended diploma in animal management at Askham Bryan College where I discovered my love for dog grooming! I have since completed a City in Guilds dog grooming qualification and canine first aid.
Hi I’m Katie!
Dogs have always been a love of mine and I have always aspired to work with them! I previously studied an animal science degree when I volunteered at Jerry green dog rescue. There I acquired my own amazing girl violet! I am now currently in my 1st year studying canine behaviour and training, where I hope to learn a great deal about these wonderful individuals.
I started with the waggy dog team in October as my work placement from university. And now have the great job working here as a waggette since February. All these different personalities make my day so different and I have fallen in love with each and every one of them. I hope that my journey here will teach me so much more within my studies and also providing me with so much excitement here at the crèche.
I have always aspired to work with dogs, with a love and a passion for them. Growing up with family dogs was always a big part of my life and brought me joy throughout my childhood and adult year’s, I currently have two dogs, a Jack Russel and a jack Russel/Patterdale.
I also have experience pet sitting others dogs which as also enabled me to develop the skills needed with looking after dogs.
I started with The Waggy Dog Crechè at the beginning of April, I have enjoyed looking after all the different breeds of dogs with amazing personalities and working with such a great team of Waggettes.
Hi I’m Grace, I have always had a passion for working with animals. I adore dogs and love to be around them as much as possible. I am currently studying the Level 3 Animal Management course at Askham Bryan College and I am working towards becoming a fully qualified dog groomer.
I started at the Waggy Dog Crèche as a work placement in September and I am now officially a Waggette. I love working here and spending time with all the dogs and the other Waggettes.
My name is Lauryn, I have a huge love for dogs, spending time with them and providing the necessary care that they need!
I’ve always owned small pets such as birds and reptiles however I don’t own a dog therefore I’ve spent lots of time walking and dog sitting family and friends dogs.
I started working at the crèche at the start of October 2022 and I’m loving every minute of it and it’s amazing being part of such a great team!
Meet Maggi, out latest Waggette. Maggi will be driving the vans picking up and dropping off your fur babies.
I am a professional trainer and behaviourst. I have always been passionate about dogs and have been in the industry for over twenty years. I first got into training when we brought our first dog into our home called Skye, who was a very naughty Border Collie. Even though we went training we still struggled with her behaviour and started to learn more and more about training.
I have completed a National Diploma in Animal Management, Advanced Diploma in Canine Behaviour and passed with the IMDT Trainer & Behaviour Accreditations.
My mission is to help people achieve their training goals through positive reinforcement methods.
