Wendy is our awesome Client Manager and has been with Puppy Stars since 2012. She will be celebrating her 10th anniversary with us at Puppy Stars, later this year.
Wendy will be your first port of call when making contact and will help you on your journey with us.
She has a keen interest in behaviour and is also a fully qualified Reflexologist. Wendy has attended several seminars presented by Dr Ian Dunbar, Ken Ramirez and Dr Susan Friedman. Wendy has a Border Terrier called Beanie and a rescue cat called Taz.
Beanie is the Office Manager's Assistant and along with Wendy, has also been with Puppy Stars since 2012. Beanie has recently just celebrated his 10th Birthday and he attended Nick's Puppy Stars Puppy Foundation class when he was just 8 weeks old, back in May 2012. He decided that he liked the classes so much, that he wanted to stay!
He is an assistant trainer and video star at Puppy Stars and can often be found demanding attention from anyone and everyone who comes to visit. He has a very keen interest in squirrels.
Sky is the newest member of the team and has been with us since July 2020. She is always on the go and is an expert in dog behaviour. She is Nick's assistant trainer and video star at Puppy Stars.
Sky can often be found waist-deep in the most muddy puddle she can find, but oddly does not like going for walks in the rain! She has a very keen interest in sniffing and all things dog.
This is Toro, a founding team member and Nick's wonderful DDB who sadly is no longer with us. Here he is staring in a TV Advert that can now be found on YouTube
