About 'Walk with Rosie'
My name is Rosie! As a passionate animal lover, qualified animal carer and dedicated pet owner I decided to set up Walk with Rosie in 2010 after many years of working in different areas of animal care.
At Walk with Rosie I pride myself on providing a friendly and reliable pet care service and I do my best to be flexible to suit you and your pets needs.
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 to 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.
If you need someone whom you can trust and depend on to give a little extra help with your furry friends just give me a call to discuss your requirements.
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
My Little Doggy Team, who sadly are not all still with us, but have left their paw prints on my heart, my life and my beloved work. They have inspired and helped me to be as happy in my vocation as I am today and I thank them.
Looking after dogs is not just a job, its a life long passion...
