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 Caroline has pursued a passion to deliver the most bespoke, professional pet services.
Since 1996, Caroline has been volunteering at the Cinnamon Trust, an organisation that helps elderly or disabled people look after their pets in their home environment. She also does volunteer’s the UK Wolf Conservation Trust as a trained Wolf Handler and The Fox Project where she rescues injured or sick foxes and transport them to the Fox Project hospital in Tunbridge Wells.
Caroline is the main driver for “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.
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 Richard,
I recently retired from my previous career as a Professional dancer and performer and since then have wanted to pursue my passions for animal and pet care. Growing up I was always fanatical about animals, especially dogs.
Since Joining My Paws and Purrs I have really enjoyed being with the dogs and learning so much about them. I have also began a Level 3 Dog Grooming Course which ias giving me a great insight into grooming standards and styles!
