Where The Dog Centre Began
Updated: Aug 25, 2020
Inspired by my own best friend, my late black lab, Daisy May (our homepage dog) and what started as dog walking services in Kilkenny in 2013 while working in PAWS animal rescue, I always dreamed of one day opening a premises where I could work closely with dogs and their owners and provide premium care services for all dogs, great and small. From providing dog daycare in a space where a dog can be a dog to providing professional training through positive reinforcement and modern dog care techniques.
Over the past ten years, I've achieved qualifications in animal care, dog and puppy training, canine psychology, nutrition and behaviour, an honors degree in Media and PR and up to date training as a canine first responder. I'm also passionate about working in dog rescue and rehabilitation and have gained so much from my four years working as a canine carer and one year as kennel manager in PAWS animal rescue. Working and running my own dog walking business since I was 21, I have developed long standing relationships with my client dogs and their owners, it has provided me with fantastic experiences and enabled me to meet some of the most amazing dogs and their people. I am so excited to expand into premises and welcome your furry family members, both new and present doggy clients, along with my rescue dogs; Newfoundland - Ripley, lurcher - Fionn, and my epic team, to The Dog Centre. --Suzy
