My name is Amy O’Toole, and I set up Ormskirk Dog Walking services early in 2013, after graduating from the University of Liverpool with a First Class Honours degree in Biological Sciences in June 2011 and finding that life working in a scientific research laboratory didn’t suit me at all.
As a child it was always my dream to work with animals, and it’s an area I have a lot of experience in. I have voluntary work experience with the RSPCA, in veterinary surgeries, on farms during lambing season, and with the WWT (Wetlands and Wildfowl Trust). I’m always looking to continue to study and learn more about dog training and behaviour, through online webinars, books, seminars and courses so that I can provide the best service possible. I have a certificate in Canine First Aid and CPR, and am a full member of the Institute of Modern Dog Training.
Our youngest team member, Oliver,
is still in training after joining us in April 2015!
My partner, Graeme, began taking over some of the group dog walks whilst I was pregnant and enjoyed it so much he still regularly helps out! The dogs all love him and have a great time when he walks them.
We also currently have four terriers (Charlie, Ben, Sasha & Poppy), and a crested gecko (Smeagol)
