Lucy is the owner of Country Kennels. She is 22 years old and has always loved animals. Lucy grew up on a farm and a breeding kennels so she was always surrounded by animals needing attention and love, of which Lucy has always had plenty to give.
At 12 she started showing dogs, training and competing in agility, working in local grooming salons and participated in grooming competitions. She then gained a diploma in animal care and qualified as a dog groomer. Lucy is also Pet First Aid trained.
As well as grooming & boarding, Lucy also shows and breeds her much loved Chihuahuas.
Lucy has a wealth of experience dealing with all types of dogs, different breeds, temperaments, health issues etc.. Lucy is extremely proud of how well she has revamped the place since taking over three years ago. She works tirelessly day and night to manage the kennels.
Lucy, even though married, is a very independant woman, and has actually designed and done nearly all of the improvements herself, with her employees.
Lucy will always remain professionial, however she does like to be more friendly towards customers and staff. Even the girls who work there, Lucy insists on creating a fun place to work for her team as she doesn't want anyone to lose interest or not want to come to work. The employees get incentives such as a bonus if they are busy, or if they do well in their reviews. If they treat it as "just a job" or "work to get paid" then the dog's won't be at their most happiest and that's not what Lucy wants. Lucy treats this business like her baby, she'd be lost without it, she absolutely loves all her customers, and especially the dogs. It's the most rewarding job ever to her! And she cares for each of the dogs as if they were her own, because at that point in time, they're all her responsibilty.
Lucy has 11 dogs! X8 Chihuahuas, Dee-Dee, Bootie, Chloe, Romeo, Candy, Luna, Darcy & Hunter. x1 Olde Tyme Bulldog - Dudley X1 Miniature Poodle- Arabella & X1 Rottweiler called Dollie.
