My name is Nicola and I have been a dog owner
for a number of years and understand how much we love our pets. I decided to launch Wags & Walkies to offer a special,
caring and custom-made service.
I understand how
important the decision is to allow someone into your home to care for your beloved pets. I will listen closely to your needs
and look after your pet as if it were my own.

Wags and Walkies can offer you the peace of
mind that your pet is in good hands, I am fully insured, police checked and have completed a comprehensive Pet First Aid course
with MJ First Aid.
Having a passion for dogs I wanted
to learn more about them so as well as volunteering at Blue Cross I decided to help out at a local dog training club, which
I attended twice weekly. I have since offered my own puppy training classes at Wordsley Community centre. I thoroughly enjoyed working with all the different breeds in class and it's
really satisfying to see the owners bond with their puppies and help them overcome any training problems they may have.
As well as practical experience I wanted to enhance
my knowledge so I completed a year long Canine Training and Behaviour Course at Pershore College and I am starting an Advanced
Diploma in Canine Behaviour with Compass Education who work in conjunction with UKRCB, the United Kingdom Registered Canine
Behaviourists. I find this subject fascinating and rewarding as there is nothing better than really understanding how
our best friends communicate with us and what their behaviour is really trying to tell us. I have also recently completed
a Canine Massage qualification which is a clinical therapy used to support and resolve a dog's muscular system that may
effect mobility, mood and quality of life.
