About Ellie

Hello! My name is Ellie, and I am a professional dog walker and pet care provider for Hucknall, Papplewick, Linby and the surrounding areas. I set up Purrfect Paws Pet Care with the vision of providing tailored care for other’s pets when they cannot be there, and ensure that pet owners are left with peace of mind when they are at work, go away, or need to take a day trip.

From day one, I have been an animal lover- and quickly became best friends with our families beautiful Staffordshire Bull Terrier- Jackson. He sadly passed away when I was quite young, however was a massive character in my life who I still have very fond memories of (including building my first snowman with his ‘help’!).

After I got a bit older, I often adopted various animals who were injured; including a stray cat who had kittens behind my house, and bugged my parents for another dog.

Finally, they gave in- and for one of my birthdays as a teenager- I ended up with my beautiful poodle, Charlie! He has been my best friend since the day he came home, and even in his old age, still is ready for an adventure with me. Charlie is the special dog who made me realise that my dream was to go above and beyond to care for animals, and helped me discover just how amazing dogs are.

All my life, I have been passionate about the welfare of animals, and I have spent a lot of time studying various aspects of their care, behaviours, the science behind their make-up, etc.

This has lead me into gaining the following qualifications:

> Advanced Pet First Aid

> Canine First Aid and CPR

> Feline First Aid and CPR

> Small Animal CPR

> Exotic Animal Care

> Dog Behaviour and Training Diploma

> Dog Socialisation and Obedience

> Dog Walking and Pet Sitting Diploma

> Animal Science Level 2 and 3

> Animal Care and Management Levels 2-4

> Leash Training for Dogs

> Positive Reinforcement Training for Dogs

> Canine Behaviour and Training Foundation Degree

> Animal Psychology Advanced Diploma

> Pet Nutrition Diploma

> Canine Science Level 3

> Care of Senior Pets

> Animal Welfare, Rescue and Rehabilitation

> Aquatic Animal Care

Alongside winning the LUX 2018 award for the Best Pet Sitting Business of Nottinghamshire...

... however, as many of you may agree, qualifications mean nothing without the hands on experience!

I have volunteered for various animal related charities, including walking dogs awaiting their forever homes; and helping rehabilitate reptiles. Alongside this, I also have done work experience (or worked) in the following areas:

> Kennel Hand and Dog Walking for a local boarding kennels

> Aquatic Specialist

> Reptile Rescue and Rehabilitation

> Work Experience with IPO Protection Dogs Training Kennels

> Work Experience with Sled Dogs in Training

> Work Experience with Dog Grooming and Handling

> Work Experience with a fellow Dog Walker

> Work Experience with a Behaviourist and Dog Trainer

> Work Experience with Reptile and Invert Care

> Work Experience with Cattery Cleaning and Maintenance

> Work Experience with Livestock and Equine Care

The Pack and I can’t wait to embark on some fantastic adventures with your beloved furry friends...

Lots of Woof,

Ellie and the Purrfect Paws Pack
