My Paws and Purrs consists of a team of competent, committed and experienced employees. Allow us to introduce them to you on this page.
Hi, I'm Caroline,
Having set up My Paws and Purrs in 2012 I have pursued my passion to deliver the most bespoke, professional pet services.
Since 1996, I have been volunteering at the Cinnamon Trust, an organisation that helps elderly or disabled people look after their pets in their home environment. I am a volunteer for the UK Wolf Conservation Trust and have trained to be a Wolf Handler and I also volunteer for The Fox Project where I assist in rescues of injured or sick foxes and transport them to the Fox Project hospital in Tunbridge Wells.
I am the main driver of “The Dog Bus”: a safe and secure means of transport for all the dogs, where each dog has its own harness and seat. Puppies and smaller dogs are safely transported using the fitted backseat cage. We have large Dog Buses that can comfortably carry 8 dogs, and are solely dedicated to their role as buses, and smaller estate cars, driven by our other Walkers, which comfortable seat 5 to 6 dogs.
Hi, I'm Colin,
I have a love of all animals especially dogs and have always had dogs of my own. I also enjoy walking as a pastime so dog walking was a natural choice after years behind a desk, and decided to do this part-time.
I have an energetic Springer cross and an elderly Bassett and also regularly look after dogs belonging to other members of my family.
I recently fostered a Springer Collie cross from 8 weeks old to 3 months so I have experience from new puppies to old dogs that need special attention. I have also exercised a dog recovering from a badly broken leg from first steps to full recovery including trips to the hydrotherapy pool.
I hold a current pets first aid course certificate and have recently studied animal training and behaviour courses.
Hi, I'm Nicola,
I've grown up with border collies and guinea pigs have always loved animals. Now with 'Roo' our beautiful Rough Collie being the latest addition to the family.
After studying at Hadlow college I went into the dog grooming industry, meeting lots of breeds I'd never even heard of and of course I got to tame their wild locks.
After working in retail and volunteering at kennels, rescue centres and stables I knew I wanted to be a dog walker and now here I am!
Hi, I'm Misha,
I have grown up around many different animals adn have had pets myself, but dogs are definitely my favourite.
I have worked with various sizes and breeds of dogs in the past and really enjoy dog walking. I am happy to be apart of the My Paws and Purrs team. Each day is different, each dog is different, but they always keep me smiling with their individual characters.
I have the best job!
Hi I'm Lizzie,
I began working as a Dog Walker and Pet exerciser for Caroline this year and I have loved every minute of it.
I am a graduate from Harper Adams where
I studied Animal Health and Welfare. During that time I also worked at the university farm, a Dog and Cat Boarding Kennels, as well as spending a year in industry at Blackpool Zoo. Once completed, I left to work for Heathrow Animal Reception Centre where I worked with an even wider range of animals and my love for companion animals and reptiles blossomed. Throughout the years I have gained lots of valuable hands on experience with a wide variety of animals all shapes and sizes.
Hi, I'm Hebe,
I’m 24 years old and originally from Yorkshire but have been living in London for over a year now. I’ve been working for My Pawsand Purrs for 6 months and I absolutely love it. I’ve always wanted to work with animals and finally decided to take the plunge. It was the best decision I’ve made as seeing the dogs excited faces when I come to pick them up is the best feeling. As well as the dog walking I am also a freelance Makeup Artist doing makeup for TV, magazines, weddings, nights out and other events. Find out more about me on : https://hebewaggettmakeup.wixsite.com/london.
I love having two completely different jobs as it never gets boring and no day is ever the same.
Hi, I'm Julia,
I've had a love of animals since birth so to be able to work with them every day is a dream come true. Before joining Caroline's team I worked in the Veterinary industry as an assistant nurse and absolutely adored my job but after 6 years decided I needed a change. I knew I wanted to continue my work with animals so this was the ideal job for me.
I am owned by 3 Shar Pei dogs, 5 cats and an 18 year old daughter. I love meeting and spending my days with all the dogs and developing unique bonds with both dogs and owners alike.
Hi there, I'm Francesca,
and I’m proud to call myself part of the My Paws and Purrs team! I’ve been enamoured with dogs since I can remember (a lot of people call me Dr Doolittle!) and it’s a dream being able to work with them each day.
Alongside this, I also offer bespoke beauty and aesthetic treatments out of a clinic in West wickham. Treatments range from facials and brow procedures, to more advanced aesthetic techniques such as Dermal Filler and anti-ageing injections. I love being able to work two of my greatest passions alongside one another, I’m a very lucky girl!
Hi, I’m Megan,
I turn 21 this year. I currently live at home with my parents and my many animal friends including different species of insects to snakes. I love animals of all shapes and sizes. Currently I am working toward going to university to study veterinary medicine.
I absolutely love working for Caroline at My Paws and Purrs, it’s a great experience to meet so many lovely dogs learn their unique traits and seeing their happy faces.
