Hello there, I’m Lois!

About me: I currently live in Leeds and have done for the last 11 years. I grew up in Suffolk but moved to Leeds for University, loved it so much I decided to stay! I live in Horsforth with my boyfriend Rik, and my Basset cross cocker spaniel Poppi.
I have worked for a large CRO for the last 10 years and now at the age of 32 want to pursue my passion of working with animals by training in Canine hydrotherapy, and to share my journey on this blog!


More about me: I’ve always loved dogs even before having one, and as a child wanted to work with animals. I did work experience at a local vets in high school and it kind of put me off, as it wasn’t as rewarding as I first had hoped. I think at that age I thought it would be all puppies and kittens, but instead it was blood, pus and putting animals to sleep 😦 maybe I had just picked a bad week! So it was put on the back burner while I concentrated on other things.

More recently Canine hydrotherapy has gotten more popular and sometime last year I revisited the possibility of re-training to become a canine hydrotherapist but thought it was not possible at my age! Talking with friends and family they encouraged me to give a go, so here I am!
