The Team

Clair

Clair

Business Director

“I have had a passion for animals for as long as I can remember from as far back as when I was a young girl to today, ranging from my first Guinea Pig to my first horse. I just have an affinity with animals and things just come naturally to me when handling and dealing with them”

Clair who founded the spring board platform for “DOGSVILLE LTD” which was wagNwalkies in 2011 after a successful career in IT left her feeling that there was a lot more to life than servers, issue resolution and upgrades! Following her dream Clair and her husband Les have built up a highly successful business that combines their two true loves; dogs and the great outdoors. Delivering a first class commercial service whilst keeping the welfare of animals as the focus of their attention, Clair and Les literally love what they do for a living now.

Delivering a truly unique concept and service to the area they have raised the bar for pet care and pride themselves on giving back to the pet owning community. Clair and husband Les as creators and chief organisers of the annual ‘Barky Malarky Charity Dog Show’ Clair & Les’ two messages are; all dogs are equal (be it a beautiful pedigree or quirky mixture) and that everyone can have fun with their pet. Encouraging local businesses and schools to become involved  in spreading the messages Barky Malarky has grown to become a highly popular event on the Basingstoke social calendar.

Clair and Les have been lucky to care for many animals in their time and they currently share their lives with two gorgeous rescue dogs (Harley and Lulu), two cats, one horse and a host of freshwater fish. Having competed to a high level within both Show Jumping and Eventing, Clair now only rides for pleasure but is just as happy doing the ‘dirty jobs’ and spending time with her equine friends as she is actually riding. Ask Clair what she loves the most though and the answer is immediate, meeting all the new K9 guests of course!!

Clair and all the staff are POLICE CHECKED and SECURITY VETTED, indeed Les, Clairs husband spent twenty two years as an armed Police Officer before, this brings peace of mind that not only are your pets in safe hands but the integrity of your property is too.

Alicia H

Alicia H

Daycare / Office Manager

Alicia is one of the more recent additions to the wagNwalkies Team, however she has already had a positive influence and is shining bright and promoted within her first 2 weeks into the Senior Role for her diligence, level head and attention to detail from all aspects of animal care and team liaisons.

Alicia has come from a back ground in Care Work having worked in the Priory caring for children and young adults with special needs, and we can safely say those skills are a great transition to working with the dogs at wagNwalkies.

 

Paige

Paige

Petcare Executive Manager

Paige in another team member who originally joined us for Work Experience from Sparsholt College whilst completing her 2nd Year of Level 3 Animal Management. Paige also had other work experience placements in a couple of other Doggy Daycares and states without hesitation wagNwalkies is the best … so we accepted her on as a member of the team once she finished her qualifications.

Paige is fabulous and has a over whelming love of all the dogs, and for Paige working at Dogsville Daycare is like a child in a candy store.

Gemma

Gemma

Petcare Executive

Gemma brings with her a wealth of experience gained over 25years of working and handling animals, from Dogs to Horses she has all the skills needed for being a fabulous addition to the Dogsville Daycare team as we move forward in 2022.

Charli

Charli

PetCare Executive

Charli joined us early in 2019 originally on work experience from BCOT but she was so fabulous we couldn’t let her go, and she is now a fully fledged member of the Dogsville Team.

Charli loves all animals from Goldfish to Horses and everything in between BUT also has a particular soft spot for the big dogs! With a quiet, calm and caring demeanor she is loved by all the Dogsville canines. Charli carries out a variation of duties, but loves nothing more to be with the dogs as much as possible which makes her one of our top “House Sitting” team members, I get the impression she also enjoys the peace and quiet away from her siblings coming from a large family which is where she gets her fabulous qualities from.
