I run a dog walking business – offering walking as well as training for behavioural issues. I use the skills and experience I gained at Hartpury every day.
My Hartpury experience
I already had some hands-on expertise from my previous job in an animal shelter. My course helped me to develop my theoretical knowledge, gain extra practical skills and explore my career ideas.
I started my business after realising there was a huge demand for a reliable and experienced dog walker in my local area. I walk dogs in packs of six or seven, giving them the chance to socialise, stretch their legs in the countryside and have some training – I even take dogs with behavioural issues. I just love all things animal!
