NEW FOR SUMMER…

New for Summer 2020. We are now covering; Southampton East, including, Bitterne, Sholing, Weston, Woolston and surrounding areas with deputy pack leader; Leah Jarvis.

Hi all, I’m Leah and I am super excited to be joining the team at Nathan’s Paw Trails. I met Nathan through networking events and soon discovered that we both have a passion for furry friends! As a family we have a few pets of our own, Crumble the cat, Bramble the rabbit, some stick insects and fish. I’ve also enjoyed helping friends with their fur babies whilst they are holidaying. My proudest achievement has to be training Barkley, our hearing dog puppy. Having Barkley from 8 weeks gave me the experience of potty training, starter training, heel work and recall. I attended weekly puppy classes and learnt lots of tips and games. Barkley left us in November to head off to big boys school to learn his specialist hearing work and is likely to go out to work in the upcoming months. A super proud mummy moment! Needless to say, I’ve been missing my walks and cuddles and so when Nathan mentioned he was planning to expand his pack, I jumped at the opportunity. I’m really excited to meet you all and start on our new adventures.

Leah is fully insured, holds a DBS check and has completed a Dog Walking CPD certified course which also includes basic Dog First Aid.
