About Us



Image description

Rachael is the owner of the business.  She spent her teenage years and early twenties working as an unqualified veterinary nurse.  Her intention was to go to Vet School but having not worked quite hard enough at school she ended up being a Secondary School Science teacher instead. 

She spent fourteen years working in inner London with teenagers but in 2013 decided to go back to working with animals.

At home she has three dogs, two Lurchers and a Greyhound.  She can be seen here with one of her Lurcher's,  Emily.  

Rachael is currently studying for an Advanced Diploma in Canine Behaviour and Management with Compass Education, a leading provider in this field.   She is also an affliate member of the International Canine Behaviourists and working towards becoming a Certified Canine Behaviourist.

She lives with her husband Danny and son Harry.

Danny is Rachael's husband and here he is pictured with one of the dogs that they have fostered and who has now moved on to a forever home.

Danny works full time as a Science teacher in central London but helps out with the pet business at the weekends and in school holidays.

He is also fully insured.
