Meet the Team
Emma, Hydrotherapy Manager
I have worked in a dog day care centre before Doggy Dips and also as a Dog Walker. I have a diploma in Animal Psychology, and my Level 3 Certificate in Hydrotherapy for Small Animals (ABC) qualification - Registered Canine Hydrotherapist (RCH).
I have always loved dogs and water, so to find a job that brings the two together is a match made in heaven for me. Sadly I don’t have a dog at the moment. The closest I have come to having a dog of my own is looking after my nephew’s (a German Shepherd/Collie cross) for a year.
Before starting at Doggy dips in January 2016 I studied Level 3 Animal Management at BCA and achieved a distinction level diploma. I then started working in daycare here are Doggy dips which I loved and then moved on to completing the level 3 certificate in hydrotherapy for small animals and qualified as a RCH (Registered Canine Hydrotherapist) in January 2017.
I have always loved dogs and have a Jack Russell myself who I now bring swimming for fun and fitness which she loves! I feel very lucky to be able to come to work to see all the happy faces of the dogs each week in and out of the pool! It is the most rewarding job I've ever had!
Sarah, Daycare Manager
I have always loved dogs and animals, and have owned a dog all my life. They are beautiful natured and I get a lot of enjoyment from working with them.
I own a Westie called Louie. He's nine years old and I have had him from a puppy he thinks he's the Boss. He also enjoys swimming in the pool.
In my spare time I spend my time enjoying walks with Louie, watching movies and spending time with friends.
Phillippa,Doggy Day Care
I have a Diploma in Animal Management Level 2. I’ve lived with dogs all my life I love their company and love the fact that they learn something new everyday. I have a Yorkshire Terrier / Jack Russell Cross called Monty who loves playing with his toys and having his belly rubbed.
I live on a farm and I enjoy swimming, long walks with Monty and spending time with my family and friends.
