I grew up in a small rural village just outside Petworth - West Sussex, and as a family we always had lots of animals from horses to cats to dogs...
My life has always involved animals in some form. In my twenties, and as my life became busier with work, I only had time to really enjoy my dog, so I switched my riding boots to walking boots and have never looked back.
I’ve owned various dog breeds over the years from a beautiful Great Dane to a very naughty Parsons Terrier. I think it’s fair to say that I’ve not always had the most straightforward of dogs, and had to learn first hand the importance of exercise, an established routine, and of course socialisation and nutrition.
With this in mind, and having been faced with redundancy after a long successful career in IT sales, I decided to set-up Canine Friend, in order to offer local people with a truly loving dog walking and home boarding service.
