Specialising in reactivity and aggression, experienced in large breed, working dogs and rescues.

I have always been around dogs since I was born and have a great love for our four legged friends, 

As a child I would always love to walk dogs and as I got older I would pet sit for family and friends. 

At 16 I joined the RSPCA as a volunteer and worked in the kennel block looking after the dogs. I later became a dog handler for a security company and worked with Nottinghamshire police under a scheme set up in Mansfield.

I then started studying about animal care and animal psychology, after gaining qualifications in dog training I decided to help with some dog rescues in South Yorkshire, where I adopted a couple of rescue dogs Kesh and Jazz (sadly both have gone over the rainbow bridge)

I moved to Aldershot in 2014 as my husband is serving in the military, we have spent a few years being down South, which includes Chivnor in North Devon and Shrivenham in Swindon. And now I’m back up North living in Worksop Nottinghamshire. I have worked for both Aspire defence and Carillion Amey (both deal with Military accommodation), but after I found it hard to find a dog walker that catered for my dogs needs and had the correct type of insurance, i decided to take that massive leap and left to set up Boots and Paws.

Not only am I fully insured I also have security clearance with the MOD.
