We thought you might like to know a little about us!!
Hi! I’m Jude and I’m the manager here at Stainthwaite, I’ve worked here for more than four years now and only regret it when it’s pouring with rain and minus two!! Only kidding!! I have more than 30 years’ worth of experience with dogs of all breeds and I believe passionately about their care both physically and mentally, if you can’t find me I’m usually in a kennel making sure the resident is happy and having cuddles!
Hi there! My name is Fiona. I’ve grown up with dogs and horses, owning both, all my life. As a teenager I taught children and adults alike to ride horses here, Scotland and the South of France. Having gained qualifications surrounding horses it was a natural progression to steer my working life towards animals in general. I was a small animal veterinary assistant for a number of years gaining a vast amount of knowledge and qualifications in the veterinary aspect of pet care. I then moved on to start two dog walking businesses of my own. At home I have to wonderful daughters, a totally mad cockerpoo named Dave and my beautiful Fell pony called Pixie whose still just a baby! It’s fantastic becoming part of the Stainthwaite Team and being able to pull on my experience from my veterinary assistance time will prove to be invaluable.
Hiya!!! I’m Amee and I’m from Yorkshire! I’m a fully qualified canine groomer and I also work in the kennels when not up to me ears in shampoo and dog hair! I’m a bit bonkers so my colleagues tell me but they say I shouldn’t change! I have wanted to work with dogs from a very young age, and I was often found charging around the garden with a toy dog on a bit of string taking it for walks! As I grew up I realised that the grooming side of working with dogs was what interested me most and here I am. I’ve already met most of you and your pupsters but I can’t wait to meet our new customers both hoooman and dog!
Hi I’m Lauren and I have always had a passion for the health and welfare of animals. I’m very happy to say that I’ve been given the opportunity to peruse this passion at the boarding kennels. I have always been around animals growing up and currently have 3 dogs, a bearded dragon and 10 cats at home. Alongside working at the kennels I am enrolled on a full time college course expanding my animal management knowledge. I love meeting and caring for all the dogs that come in!
Hi there I’m Kath, I have owned Stainthwaite Boarding Kennels for over 14 years now and it’s time to take a back seat and retire. I have a great team who have taken over from me and that I trust to see the kennels go from strength to strength, don’t worry though, you’ll still see me around and I’ll be sure to give you a cheery wave.
