“My name is Alex and I’ve always had a real love for all animals. I grew up on a big farmhouse surrounded by lots of cats and dogs, all rescued. My parents also ran a small boarding cattery from the back garden, so I would often sneak in after school to play with all the cats.
I now have a beautiful 11 year old English setter called Bailey, who I raised and trained from a puppy. He’s pretty unusual so he always gets a lot of attention and questions wherever we go. His Grandad was runner up in crufts!
It’s a bit of dream job to be able to work with dogs all day. I find it incredibly rewarding to see them happily running around and getting muddy with all their walking buddies. It’s also really interesting learning all their individual personalities and funny little quirks.
Other than my love of animals, I enjoy playing the guitar and piano, archery and kayaking. I also do a lot of woodwork and design then make my own furniture and lighting.
I am looking forward to meeting all your pets and having great adventures together.”
