Meet the Team!

In October 2018, the new DEFRA licensing came into practice, with the higher standard requesting for, ‘A member of staff with a relevant OFQUAL regulated Level 3 qualification must be present during the working day’.

Not only do we meet these requirements, but we think that we have the highest qualified team of staff working with your pets in the area.

Please have a look at our staff below with their qualifications. You can also see a hard copy of all the certificates in reception.
