Read on to find out a little more about a few of the Happy Hounds team:

Kevin (Dog walker/Pet sitter)

Kev is an artist and graphic designer who joined our team after spending several years working in education. His calm and friendly disposition is an absolute hit with both clients and dogs: he’s like the Pied Piper when he’s out with the pooches!

Layla (Dog walker/Dog Boarder/Pet Sitter)

Following a successful career in marketing Layla wanted to get out of the rat race and indulge in her passion for animals. 

Based in Woodford she has a lovely group of dogs who she walks in the local forests and parks along with her own dog Cassie.

Kerri (Dog walker/Pet sitter)

Kerri is another who joined us following a career in education. 

She is currently studying for her BSc degree and becoming a dog walker has allowed her to do a job she loves while giving her the time to continue her studies.

Friendly, reliable and professional, Kerri epitomises what we look for in a Happy Hounds pet carer.

Bonnie (Dog walker/Dog Boarder/Pet Sitter)

Covering Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells, Bonnie is one of our most experienced dog walkers 

After training as a veterinary nurse she’s worked with animals all her career. Her knowledge and experience of animals has proved extremely valuable and her enthusiasm and love for her dogs is clear to all who meet her.

Jo (Dog walker/Dog boarder/ Pet sitter)

Jo clearly loves the dogs – or us! – as she’s been working with us for over five years. 

Based in Sevenoaks she covers the surrounding area, walking her dogs in the local forests and farm land. She also loves to board dogs at her home.

She is very experienced and knowledgeable and is currently taking a diploma in puppy training.

Amanda (Dog walker/Dog boarder/Pet sitter)

Amanda gave up a successful career in the city to start a family and when it came to getting back into work she realised she no longer wanted the rat race and prefered to make a living working with animals. 

Whether its walking or boarding Amanda falls in love with every dog that comes into her care and shows them wonderful care and attention.

Cath (Owner and founder)

Following a successful marketing career Cath was looking for a change of direction and decided to follow her passion: animals, and decided she wanted to provide a more caring alternative to kennels and catteries that minimised the distress sometimes caused to animals by being away from home and also enabled working owners to have a happy dog. 

Therefore in 1999 she founded Happy Hounds and Cooler Cats with the aim of providing reliable, trustworthy and professional pet care to clients in East London.

Over the years Happy Hounds has expanded into new areas including South London and Kent but Cath’s hands on approach and dedication to providing a personal service to her clients along with her passion for animals has helped cement Happy Hounds reputation as a friendly and trustworthy company.

Cath still carries out regular walks and loves boarding dogs at our base in Leytonstone.
