UNA

Una and german shepherd.jpg

Owner and Dog Trainer

Una is a qualified and insured dog trainer with numerous years of experience helping hundreds of humans and their dogs understand one another and live happily together. She is a memeber of various organisations who vet their members and ensure best practice.

 

Una grew up around large dogs. Her grandmother owned three Rottweilers. Una spent long summers swimming and playing with these three dogs and she credits this with sparking her love of dogs.

The signs of her future career were present from early on. As a child, she would pretend her German Shepherd Rottweiler mix was a pony and taught her beloved pet how to jump obstacles around the garden.

These days, she has a German Shepherd called Sheba. Una is committed to constant learning in order to offer the best possible service to her clients but also the best possible life for her own dog.

Una has broadened her skill set through training with some of the world’s best canine behaviour and training providers. She is committed to positive reinforcement and training with kindness, compassion and in a lasting manner. 


Una believes in the importance of scientifically proven, kind and humane training. This guides her continual learning. Una has taken a wide range of courses including level 5 behaviour professional. She is especially passionate about Scentwork.

ALI

Ali with beagle.jpg

Dog Walker

Ali joined us in September 2019. She worked with vulnerable children and young people and then in floristry before joining our team. She had grown up with dogs and was missing having them around. This led to her decision to combine her love of dogs with her love of long walks and become a dog walker.

Since joining us, Ali has developed an interest in dog training and has been completing courses to help benefit her and the dogs she walks. She has completed courses in canine communication, canine first aid, dog walking and pet sitting.

JOHN

John and his Tibetan Terrier Coco.jpg

Dog Walker

John is a calm and friendly father of four, two teenage girls, a five-year-old boy and Coco his much loved three-year-old Tibetan Terrier.

Growing up dogs were always a part of John’s family from his earliest memory of Molly a Giant Schnauzer through to Rio a smart and energetic Springador.

So, it was only natural that three years ago when John took a career break from being a Head Chef to look after his family so his wife could return to work, Coco joined the family.

Dog walking was a natural transition for him. A lifelong dog lover, John often prefers the company of our furry friends particularly after a busy shift in the kitchen.

You can rest assured that he will treat your dog with patience and compassion.

John has a certificate in Canine first aid and is committed to continuing his professional development to stay up to date with compassionate dog care. 

John covers Chingford and Higham’s Park.

LIZI

Lizi walking dogs.JPEG

Groomer and Dog Trainer

Lizi was never allowed a dog as a child, which possibly made her passion for them grow even more! She’s been working with, and owns three rescue dogs, and have rescued around three hundred dogs in the last six years. She handles all aspects of dog rescue from assessing, fostering, finding homes to helping after the adoption to ensure the transition goes smoothly.

Lizi became a qualified Level 3 City & Guilds Dog Groomer around 3 years ago and works in-house. She takes great care to ensure the dogs she works with see grooming as a positive experience. She loves watching them flourish as they learn that grooming can be pleasant. Your dog’s experience and happiness are what it’s all about.

More recently Lizi has become interested in training and behaviour and has completed some online courses as well as training on at the group lessons with Colins K9 Training services alongside Una, Colin and Tracey.

Lizi currently runs a pub and has three dogs, Fyn, Kylie and Oddy and three cats Kitten, Midget and Fats. They are all rescues and have their own quirks and interesting behaviours, which she wouldn't change for the world!
