Meet the Team

Vicky – Manager


Hello, I’m Vicky and I’m the supervisor here at Dog Day Care. I have spent most of my career working within a referral veterinary practise alongside completing a degree in Animal Behaviour and Welfare here at Merrist Wood College. I’m also qualified as a pet first aider and pet microchipper.  At home I have a Border Collie and a Tabby cat who along with my little girl keep me firmly on my toes. When I’m not at Day Care my Husband and I love nothing more than exploring the countryside in our Landrover Defender!

Katy – Supervisor


Hi, I’m Katy. I have grown up with animals all my life and currently own 3 dogs, Fleur, Stanley and Smudge along with tortoises, birds, cats and guinea pigs. I have just finished a Foundation degree in Animal Behaviour and Welfare at Merrist Wood College and have started the next chapter of my studies by going on to start an Animal Behaviour and welfare BSc (Hons) degree. On Saturdays I volunteer at The Animal Behaviour Centre in Chertsey where I get to assist with puppy training classes! In my spare time you’ll either find me baking or playing and cuddling with my dogs.

Hi I’m Jess and I’ve just completed the Level 3 National Extended Diploma in Animal Management here at Merrist Wood as well as having studied criminology, law and media previously at Farnborough sixth. At home I have a springer spaniel called Belle and a rabbit Oreo. In my spare time I like spending it on days out with my friends and taking Belle on long walks along the canal and woodlands.
