I started my career in retail and remained in that industry for over 20 years until I left it for good in 2016 after spending the last few years in pet retail. It was this role that ignited my passion for all things dog - I loved the customer facing role, but being sat on the floor with the dogs was what I wanted to do all day!
In the summer of 2017, I started my new role as a dog chauffeur; ferrying dogs to and from their holiday home whilst their owners were away. Later that same year I bought into a dog care franchise business which allowed me the opportunity to have a customer facing role and sit on the floor with dogs! Perfect!
Due to the impact of COVID-19, I had to let go of my franchise business, but it saw the birth of Connie's Canine Care and a broader range of dog care services.
I live in Leigh with my husband Lee and our 2 daughters, Chloe & Megan. We have 2 rescue dogs, Mollie a 9 year old Cairn Terrier and Milo a 7 year old Weshie (Westie x Shih Tzu).
Connie is my mum, who very sadly passed away in May 2019 with lung cancer, which was only diagnosed 6 days before she passed. My mum was my biggest inspiration & cheerleader, She was the strongest, bravest person who, at just 4'11" (she was very proud of her height!), was a force to be reckoned with. My mum loved dogs and would always treat Mollie and Milo as grandchildren (rightly so), whenever they visited, they were given "Grandma's Biscuits".
I had to pay homage to my mum when choosing a name.
To better understand dogs; their needs, behaviour, emotions, well being & health and to provide the best care and dog care service, I am always wanting to learn and expand my knowledge base and skillset.
