Meet the Team
Meet our wonderful team!
After a long career in the media industry Mark decided to change direction. This was brought about after helping a dog walker friend. During this time he gained valuable experience in managing large groups of dogs, and observing their behaviour. His passion for dogs, having had dogs whilst growing up, inspired him to create a doggy daycare service. This was 9 years ago. Since becoming involved in the industry it became apparent there had to be something more to offer other than just walking dogs. After researching the dog walking industry, and looking at the customers' needs for a better level of service, Dogstroll has evolved and has become what it is today. When you go through the website you will clearly see that Dogstroll is not "Just a walk in the park". Mark's love of dogs has inspired him to ensure Dogstroll Daycare remains personal. Dogstroll is his passion.
Spending time at her family farm made her realise her connection with animals was special. Since Sandra became a “Dogstroller” her life changed and she has never looked back. She regularly attends dog and puppy training classes, and behavioural workshops. Her commitment to the wellbeing of dogs in Dogstroll's care is unsurpassed. Sandra's quote "Choose a job you love, you'll never have to work a day in your life".
She grew up in a large family of animal lovers, and began her working life on the family farm. Sharon sees an important part of her job as getting to know the dogs' individual personalities. This is one reason why at Dogstroll the ratio of dogs per handler is low in comparison to the industry's norm. Her other area of interest is dog nutrition which includes raw feeding. She will also be studying dog grooming.
Carys comes from an extensive animal training background. As both her parents are vets, you can be assured that your loved one will be well monitored during their time with Dogstroll. Carys studied animal behaviour as part of her Oxford university degree. Before joining Dogstroll she spent 5 years as a zookeeper. During this time she gained invaluable experience/knowledge in animal behaviour. She also attended numerous professional and scientific workshops on animal behaviour. (run by Dogs Trust, The British And Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums, Chester Zoo, and The Shape of Enrichment, to name but a few)
