Walk With Rosie is a friendly and reliable pet care service for owners who need a little extra help to care for their companions. The service is designed to be flexible to best suit you and your friends needs with someone you can trust and depend on.
My name is Rosie, as a passionate animal lover, qualified animal carer and pet owner I decided to set up Walk With Rosie in 2010 after many years of working in different areas of animals care.
The main service I provide at Walk With Rosie is dog walking in and around the Bedford area.
I have always had a keen love for animals and the desire to work with them encouraged me to leave school after completing my GCSE's and pursue a college education in general Animal Care. This led on to a job at a local dog training establishment where I gained skills in grooming, dog training, walking and teaching obedience classes.
After many years there I decided to take a job in NVQ Assessing students working with animals and although I enjoyed this, I missed the hands on work and contact with the animals. I made the decision to return to my prior work but this time working for myself, this is where Walk With Rosie began.
Whilst attending college I gained my first qualifications:
NVQ 2 in Animal Care
National Certificate in Animal Care (distinction level) with the IAMS award
National Diploma in Animal Care (distinction level) with award
I also gained experience working and volunteering in many different environments with many different animals to find out all about the jobs available from zoo work, veterinary work to kennels and rescue animals.
Whilst working as an Assessor I went on to gain:
NVQ 3 in Animal Care
PTLLS - teaching
Level 2 Intermediate Certificate in Dog Grooming
Basic Animal First Aid
Meet Mum - Angela! Most of you will have already met my Mum but if you haven't your pets will have! They all love her and get so excited when she comes along to help out on walks! I would be lost without all her help and friendship! We are both very lucky to be able to share such great times out with all our best canine friends!
