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 Lorraine,
I have grown up around animals as my uncle owned a dairy farm in Ireland.
As a family, we have had many dogs including Staffies, Jack Russels, a Bichon Frise and I now have a Shitsu cross, who I met while fostering for a local rescue group. She is my very good friend, Nellie.
Last year we also took in a couple of naughty kittens, Doris and Radar. I have two daughters at home who have also had rabbits, guinea pigs and even a gorgeous pair of rats called Dusty and Marmite!
Hi I'm Lisa,
I grew up around animals especially (boxer) dogs. I have continued to have a life with dogs and animals in general. I currently have two rescued dogs (female staff and a male staff cross) and two rescued lizards (one bearded dragon and one iguana).
I have three diplomas in dog training-behaviour and phycology- breeding.I enjoy making new furry friends (non-furry too), learning more about them and their individual personalities.
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 Chloe,
I grew up with different kinds of dogs (from border collies to staff crosses), and other animals like hamsters, rabbits & cats, but I have always had a soft spot for dogs.
After working in the catering industry for 5 years I started volunteering for the RSPCA to help keep the cats and dogs company. Whilst volunteering, I realised that I wanted to make pet care/exercise my full time career, and from that I found Caroline with the rest of My Paws and Purrs team.
I am now known as "The puppy girl" :)
Hi, I'm Sam,
Mother of 3 and retired rugby player.
Animals of all shapes and sizes, Dr Who and watching rugby with the girls.
I have worked for My Paws And Purrs since October 2017 and I love my job and all the dogs!
I have a Working Cocker Spaniel named Vader, his full name is Lord Darth Vader and he was named by my eldest son! He is 4 and a lovely boy who loves water and chasing his ball. I have had many dogs through my life, mostly Jack Russels. I have also owned Staffordshire Bull Terriers who were mother and son and my first own dogs. I love all the dogs I walk for My Paws And Purrs like my own. They all have very different personalities and always put a smile on my face.
Dogs are defiantly better than people!
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!
