Linda has spent all her working life with horses and dogs; working in the horse racing industry in both riding out and admin roles (racing secretary and bloodstock agent). This involved dealing with Owners, Trainer, Vets and was at a high level. Over the last 12 years Linda has become more involved with dogs and cats, helping in boarding kennels, dog walking and house sitting, where she looks after all animals “great and small” from horses, to alpacas, cats and fish…..
Taking her interest in veterinary and animal welfare a stage further, Linda studied these subjects and gained an Animal Nursing Assistant certificate and an Advanced Diploma as an Equine Nursing Technician. Both these qualifications involved work experience in veterinary practices, small animal and equine. This practical and academic experience is proving very helpful at Our Special Friends, as Linda is able to deal with cases/clients and discuss their animals, obtaining their veterinary history to assist in whatever way is necessary. Linda is also able to assess potential AAA visiting dogs, when they come for interview with their owner
