Nikki – Dog Trainer and Groomer
I made the career change in 2013 when I took the decision to quit my job as an Account Director for a US-based film studio (one of the ‘Big Six’) and left my university degree and marketing career in the City behind. At the time I was the youngest and only female Account Director in my company and yet I still wasn’t satisfied…
I quit, walked out and spent several months figuring out my next move. I spent my weekends volunteering in the kennels of a national animal charity hospital taking care of sick and neglected dogs whilst working with a local dog trainer and behaviourist in the week. I joined a doggy daycare and walking business full-time in London for 18 months and started working towards gaining further experience and qualifications in my new field.
I qualified as a Dog Trainer in 2014, as a Professional Dog Groomer in 2016 and as a Recognised Scentwork Dog Trainer in 2019.
I currently own one Beagle; 6 year old Peanut and split my week doing group dog walks, puppy training and dog grooming.
Favourite things in life: Peanut and Prosecco!
