ABOUT THE WOOF CREW
Before I tell you a bit about myself I want to start by saying a big thank you to all the furry friends I’ve made and their owners, who have entrusted me with their beloved pets. It’s because of you that I get to do a job I truly love.
They say a dog is a man’s best friend and for me that saying has proved to be true. I started my work-experience early on. Whilst my buddies were dreaming of becoming teachers and firemen, I was counting down the hours at school until I could get back home to my five dogs. Our house, in South Africa, was a bit like a zoo, with the children, dogs, cats, mice, snakes, hamsters, parrots and fish all brought up together. Being an animal lover runs in my family and I’m proud to say my little boy Jacob has definitely inherited my passion for pets.
As a teenager I setup my own dog-walking service in South Africa and earned respect in my neighbourhood as the ‘Dog Dude’. Walking up to nine dogs at a time I quickly learnt how to keep a pack in check and how to notice and respond to a dog’s complex ways of communicating.
Like you, I know that no dog is the same, but over my thirty-plus years of experience with dogs, I have got to know the personality traits that are common for certain breeds.
With that in mind, every aspect of The Woof Crew is suited to the complex needs of canines. From our specially fitted van with panoramic windows, so the doggies can get daylight and a varied view, to the hand-built cages created for their comfort. Preparing for every eventuality, I’m fully insured and have even been trained in animal first aid.
Rest assured, you’ll be leaving your dog in safe hands. I like to think that if pups invented their own dog-walking company it would look a lot like this!
