ABOUT ME

In 2015, I established and opened Calne Pet Supplies, an independent pet shop specialising in some of the best natural foods, treats, health & wellbeing supplements and accessories for dogs, cats and small animals.

I've welcomed hundreds of dogs through the door and spent many, many hours supporting owners.  

I'm passionate about understanding and meeting the needs of our dogs through training, nutrition and health and began my training journey in 2019.

On the rare occasion I am not training clients or working behind the shop scenes, I enjoy the chance to relax at home which I share with Matt, my amazingly supportive partner, Kermit our Black Labrador, Ruby our adopted British Bulldog and numerous ex-battery chickens.

I love walking, the countryside and the coast, wildlife, gardening, baking & reading and never refuse a visit to a tearoom or a dog-friendly pub!

I have always looked to enjoy life to the fullest with my dogs and want to support others to be able to do the same.

Dogs lives are just a fraction of ours, so let's fill them with safeness, mutual respect and trust, fun, love and happy learning.
