About Me

My goal is to allow as many dogs as possible to live their best lives, whether they are competing in dog sports or simply a loveable family pet.
Over the years I have had to rehab two of my dogs, one after cancer treatment and the other from an ongoing hock issue which has resulted in arthritis. It’s through my personal experiences I have discovered a passion for enhancing the quality of our dogs lives, and I’ve taken a special interest in understanding arthritis and the effective management of it.

Happy Clients

My dogs just love Nicola and you can tell she truly cares for their well being. Always offering invaluable advice on how to keep them fit and healthy to ensure they have a long and safe flyball career.
