Dee is the founder, manager and head poop picker of Dee’s Dogz. While Dee’s original career path in animals specialised in horses, after gaining her BA(Hons) in Equine Management she decided to try a whole host of other ventures before coming full circle back into the animal world.
Dee loves all dogs of all sizes and has the privilege of being able to meet and care for the many different breeds that attend day care every day. Her mission is to create an enriching day care environment to support the needs and welfare of every dog because happy dogs make happy owners.
In 2015 Dee joined a company as a dog walker / day care operator which gave her valuable experience managing groups of dogs and learning about their social interactions and body language. In 2017 she started work at Dogs Country Club as a Day Care Assistant but was soon promoted to Day Care Manager.
Over the past few years Dee has grown her skill set and knowledge of all things dog gaining recognised qualifications from various awarding bodies to continue in her professional development.

Jordan is our Day Care Supervisor here at Dee's Dogz. Previously she worked at Dogs Country Club so knows the facilities and regular doggy day care attendees like the back of her hand. When she's not at work, she is training to be a dog trainer, and that learning is transferred into providing additional enrichment for your furry family members while they visit.
Jordan has worked with some high profile dog trainers including Jo Hill, Corinne Wrend and Craig Ogilvie.
In February this year Jordan became a Canine Hoopers World Instructor.
Jordan has three dogs; Wyatt and Lilith are both Belgian Shepherd crosses and enjoy the sport of mantrailing and Tucker the beagle is a dab hand at tricks.
