Experience: Battersea Dogs and Cats Home
I worked at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home for eight years as a dog behaviourist and rehomer.
This included performing comprehensive temperament assessments, training and behaviour modification, and rehoming.
I also developed and facilitated behavioural and rehoming staff training at Battersea.
During my time at Battersea I worked with thousands of dogs from an enormous range of breeds, ages, sizes, temperaments, training needs and behaviour problems.
I gave behavioural and rehoming advice at various events whilst working at Battersea including:
- Discover Dogs
- Wag & Bone Show
- Royal Windsor Horse Show
- Ideal Home Show
- Pride - London
- South of England Show
- Hertfordshire County Show
- Surrey County Show
- Battersea Dogs and Cats Home Reunions
- Battersea at Old Windsor Open Days
I was involved in several media projects at Battersea including various TV shows and internal information videos:
- Animal Rescue Live (BBC1)
- Pet Rescue (Channel 4)
- Christmas Day Rehoming Appeal (QVC)
- Battersea Information Video 'A Dog's Story'
