My love for dogs started when I got my first Golden Retriever, Skye. Before I got Skye, I was not aware that I had a natural affinity with dogs and that I would not only learn so much but love it too! Since I was very little, I had social difficulties, which made it extremely difficult to speak to anyone outside of my immediate family. Skye gave me the motivation to improve and gave me the confidence to do things on my own, which I had difficulties before.
After that and spending time with other dogs, I really wanted to study more about them and potentially work with dogs and animals in the future. So, I started to take courses with the Cambridge Institute of Dog Behaviour and Training and I found it really interesting and useful. I went all the way to complete my PETbc diploma in Advanced Canine Behaviour and Psychology. Then four years later, I brought home my second Golden Retriever, who I named Cody. He further helped me so much mostly with my communication. Since my first two dogs were so important to me, I really wanted to name my business after them (that’s where Skye and Cody came from).
As well as dog behaviour, I also completed and received a distinction in my diploma in Canine Anatomy and Physiology with Compass Education. This led to me wanting to try and prepare to study vet nursing. Also, I am in the process of studying towards a BSc in Computer Science and Mathematics, which I am putting on hold for a bit while I try out the vet nursing.
Since I am full-time student, I do have extreme limited time for my services I offer. But around my studies, I mainly offer dog walking for a limited number of clients in the London Borough of Kensington and Chelsea but also offer one-to-one dog training. I primarily focus on general dog behavioural problems and puppy training. I am absolutely passionate about dogs and love helping owners understand their dogs better! From my experience of walking and caring for other dogs so far, I learned that they are all unique and their individual needs are all different. So, it is important that you are flexible with the different methods you use for caring, walking and training.
