I have worked at Dogs Trust for 12 Years. I started my career as a canine carer, working with all the dogs that needed our help. I then moved to the Education Team in 2008 as I could see the only way to tackle the issue of irresponsible ownership is through changing attitudes of the dog owners of the future.
