Meet The Team
Louise - Founder & Trainer
Canine Friends was founded by Louise in 2018 with the view of providing the best in dog services in West Sussex.
Having years before trained as a Veterinary Nurse it has always been a dream of hers to run her own business working with animals. From her background of veterinary nursing & dog walking to providing training to many clients in and around Haywards Heath - she has quickly become a sought after trainer in the area.
Her experience working with a variety of breeds has given her a wealth of knowledge to pass on to her many fantastic clients. She absolutely loves working with puppies and their owners to achieve well balanced and happy adult dogs.
She holds qualifications in canine coaching, dog walking, pet sitting & canine first aid. She is currently undertaking the Level 4 Puppy Training Certificate with the Cambridge Institute of Dog Behaviour and Training, Level 5 Canine Coaching Accredited Diploma & Level 5 Canine Behavioural Accredited Diploma with Canine Principles.
"I could not be prouder of the level of service provided to our clients by the Canine Friends team."
Kiera - Dog Walker & Sitter
Kiera is a fantastic addition to the team bringing with her a wealth of hands on experience having worked professionally with dogs for 4 years. In addition to her experience she is qualified in Canine First Aid which was completed locally at the Mewes Vets.
Aside from her professional experience, she has been brought up around dogs and horses. Outside of work she spend time looking after her beautiful horse Misty and extremely cute Spaniel Oscar.
She approaches every dog with lots of love and care, which is what made her stand out on her trial day and gained her a place on the Canine Friends team. Any dog in her care will be throughly spoilt with affection and treated as if they are her own.
Kiera is also currently undertaking a Dog Grooming course one day a week which she is hoping to bring to the business within the next year.
