I have been an animal lover for as long as I can remember and over the years have participated in work with the WWF and the Dogs Trust.
Before I started animal care as a career I had worked in the security industry and as such carry CRB & NACOSS Gold check certification.
I also am actively involved with the Devon & Cornwall Police Puppy training scheme and have been screened for suitability by the force.
As a result i'm now in my 5th year of caring for Police German Shepherdpups and participating in their training in readiness for passing them to a prospective handler and then on to the 13 week initial handler course.

One thing that is most important when transporting animals, especially someone elses special pet, is that they are moved in a safe, clean and relaxed manner.
To that end, I use an Ex- Police Dog Section Estate car which is fully kitted out with a purpose built, safe, wipe clean twin cage at the rear with air conditioning and extraction, blankets etc.
I also carry First Aid for both human and animal needs as well as sundry dog bags, bowls, water etc
I am based in Torquay but service the surrounding area as well including Brixham, Newton Abbot, Paignton and Totnes.
