Team Doggy’s Dolittle Creche & Grooming

Meet our Team

Centre Manager

Georgia is our Centre Manager and head of our Grooming Team. She completed her Level 2 Dog Grooming Diploma in 2016 along with Canine and Human First Aid. Since she has completed her Level 3 Professional Daycare and Boarding course. Georgia’s passion has always been in animals, growing up with numerous pooches; Alfie her first gorgeous Boxer, Buster & Buddy her Yorkshire Terriers who play lovely grooming models, Ralph the loony Boxer she has the pleasure of loving every day and now the latest addition is Barney The Bulldog, not forgetting her beloved pony Bailey. After school Georgia attended Myerscough College; here she studied Level 3 Equine Management and Animal Care where her passion for animals flourished. Making the perfect team; Georgia, her Mum and Step-dad decided to open the family business in loving memory of Alfie “The Wise Dog-Father” who they sadly lost in 2016. Doggy’s Dolittle has now been open for 5 amazing years and counting! It brings joy to our lives every day with the BEST team and most precious fur babies. HERE’S TOO MANY MORE YEARS TO COME….

Assistant Manager

Heather has recently been promoted to join Georgia helping in the day to day running of the centre. Our social media guru, when not taking hundrreds of 'pawsome' pics of your pooches, she is a very experienced daycare assistant. Qualified in canine first aid, she is always ready to lend a hand where needed. Heather began her career with us in early 2019 after working as a hairdresser for 4 years. She started a Saturday job in a salon at the age of 14 and worked her way up to become a qualified Level 3 Hair Stylist, but then she found her calling in the dog world at Doggy’s Dolittle. We don’t know who loves the daycare more, the dogs or Heather! She loves to entertain them throughout the day playing different games and always manages to get them perfect action shots to show their pawents how much fun they have during their visits to us!! To add to Heather’s gleaming resume, she is our cleaning fairy, she has a not so secret obsession with any cleaning product and technique! We even have to build into the rota a ‘cleaning slot’ just to satisfy her obsession!!!

Daycare Assistant

Sam is our longest serving Daycare Assistant who started on day one with Georgia and our “Taxi Driver”. She has the pleasure of collecting our pooches for school and returning them home after a long day of playing. Sam worked for the directors in their other business for over 8 years before taking a career change into the crazy world of dogs! She has a Level 2 Diploma in Dog Behaviour and K9 First Aid. She took some time during lockdown to enhance her skills and studied a diploma in Psychology, Grooming, Nutrition & Dog Sitting. Sam’s life revolves around her Harvey; her 8 year old beautiful Boxer dog. She loves spending her spare time taking him on long walks and teaching him new tricks. Sam is an all-rounder in Doggy’s Dolittle, always helping where she can whether that’s with paperwork, cleaning and even in the grooming department – assisting Georgia and Tom with the more challenging breeds, keeping them entertained whilst they work their magic with the scissors.

Daycare Assistant

Tom is one of our Daycare Assistants and works alongside Georgia as a Trainee Dog Groomer. He has high hopes to soon complete his qualifications to become a qualified Professional Dog Groomer. He has worked with us since early 2019 after studying a Level 3 Diploma in Equine Management and Animal Care at college. Tom’s previous jobs have been in kennels and on equine yards so there is no doubting his experience in this industry. His love for animals does not stop with dogs as he has had horses his whole life, he spends his weekends participating (and winning-of course) in horse shows all over the country. Tom comes from a family of horse riders and dog breeders, so I suppose you can say his passion for animals is part of his genetics! After spending every day giving all his love to our Doggy’s Dolittle pooches, Tom decided to treat himself to his very own little Border Collie; Jess, who loves coming to work just as much as he does!
