Mike

Operations Manager

Emma gave up her career in IT to make the life better for a neglected neighbourhood dog.  From setting up a dog walking company in 2004 (All 4 Paws),to opening the first daycare for dogs in 2007, to going even further and opening the UK's first free running dog rescue with Dogs4Rescue opening 2013.  Emma's passion is at the forefront of each business, and the charity work is Making Dogs Lives Better.  This has seen the business grow, expand, move premises, open a pool and continue to design the centre around the happiness of each of the dogs and their very individual needs.  Emma strives to inspire and revolutionise the pet care and dog rescue industries through this success.

Emma - "When you do something because you believe it's right, you are rewarded and your life becomes fuller.  These dogs have made my life more enjoyable than I could had dreamed"

Matt started with Daycare4Dogs in July 2019. He was brought in by Emma to help take us to the next level of Daycare and help make us even better than we are now. He is a country bumkin at heart and loves all animals. With over 12 years’ experience in management roles he is here to guide the Daycare4Dogs team onwards and upwards.

Matt - “I have found my dream job with Daycare4Dogs. I hope to be part of this amazing team for many years to come and hope I can add to the great work that has already been done by Emma and the team. Making Dogs Lives Better is what we live by here at the Daycare and the Rescue and anything we can do to make that come true will be done because we love each and every dog who comes to us.”

Sharon, AKA Shaz, has been with Daycare4Dogs since the very beginning. She is the main Lady about the Daycare and runs the floor making sure all our beautiful doggies get the care and attention they need. Her loud and bubbly personality cannot be matched and all of our doggie’s love being with her. Shaz has always had a passion for rescuing dogs and has 3 rescue doggies of her own. Shaz has stuck with us through thick and thin and personifies Daycare4Dogs and we couldn’t do what we do without her.

Sharon - “I love the fact that what we do makes a difference to dog’s lives. Whether it be the rescues who come from Dogs4Rescue or the dogs that really come out of their shell when with us. What we do really does make dogs lives better and I love the family we have created at the Daycare and the Rescue.”

Mike is Daycare4Dogs Operations Manager. He hass been part of the Daycare family since 2017. He leads the way when it comes to making sure all our staff are trained to the highest of standards so that they can confidently and professionally care for all our dogs. He specializes in working with our cheekier doggies ensuring that they become the star pupils we know they can be.

Mike - “Daycare4Dogs is my passion, I love building a bond with the dogs and getting to know all their different personalities. I learn something new about dog behaviour every day.”

HANNAH

Daycare Assistant

Katie, AKA Chiz, became part of the Daycare4Dogs family in 2020 and has never looked back. She splits her time between us and our partners Dogs4Rescue.  She is just a natural with dogs and we wouldn't know what to do without her.

Jess is our resident night owl. Mainly looking after all our Hotel guests in the Hotel4Dogs. Since joining us in 2018 we really could not provide the service we do without her. She makes sure all your lovely pups are cared for when you are away on your holidays and she forms wonderful bonds with the dogs making sure they all feel super safe and cared for when they are staying with us.

Jess – “I love all dogs and this job gives me such satisfaction, plus doing the night shifts mean I get to snuggle all the doggies”

Amy is one of our newest members of staff, having joined us in September 2021. Daycare was a new environment for Amy but as soon as we met her we knew she had potential to be a star, and she is definately living up to her potential. She grew in confidence as her training progressed as she leant the unique skills needed. Amy has a long career with dogs ahead of her.

Hannah is one of our all-round stars. Whatever needs doing Hannah will get it done. She has a huge love for our doggies and loves to have a good cuddle on the sofas with them as well as doing the training sessions with them. She has been a vital part of the team since 2018.

Hannah – “I’ve worked at Daycare4Dogs over a year now and love it. I’ve always wanted to work with dogs and rang the centre about volunteering originally. I could not believe my luck when they offered me a volunteer spot and then 3 months later a contracted position. It is my dream job. It was love at first sight for me and I can’t imagine working anywhere else. It really is one big family.”

Sue – “I really enjoy the job and love looking after the dogs”

Charlotte has been with us since 2018 and brings her knowledge from her degree in Canine and Feline Psychology with her into the Daycare. She contributes a huge amount and we are learning lots from her, along with her gaining vital practical experience with us. 

“I love working here, I was able to do this alongside my studies and it is giving me fantastic experience working with dogs.”

Damo, is one of the new wave of Dogs Handlers we have, he joined us in 2019. His love in life is animals, from his pet lizards to the doggies he cares for in the Daycare. You can usually hear him coming before you see him as he travels around on a motorbike and you will never see him without a smile on his face.

Damo – “What’s better than being paid to be with dogs. It is a dream and I love every minute”

Ellie joined us the same time as Amy and is fast becoming a vital part of our growing team. No matter the task, Ellie is never fazed and has an amazing confidence with all types of dogs, large or small. We are so happy to have found her.

Libby is our weekend wonder. She joined us in 2021 just before starting her animal welfare course at college. As she studies throughout the week she works with us at the weekend. She is an amazingly bubbly young lady and will be going a long way in the dog caring world. We are glad she is starting with us.

Similar to Libby, Mia is one of our young up and coming starts. She works part time with us as she is completing her studies.  Mia is a grafter and never shy's away from a job.  All our doggies adore when she is in.

Daycare4Dogs just would not be the same without Carla, she has been with us for over 4 years now and brings a love for dogs incomparable to anyone else. She began her Daycare4Dogs life as our Van driver but has since progressed to being one of our full time Dog Handlers. She also helps out with our Partners Dogs4Rescue. A true legend.
