Puerto Asís Hi there, and welcome to The Wantage Pet Company!
My name is Lollie and I’m the owner and head trainer here at The Wantage Pet Company. I have been working and studying in the animal industry for over 5 years and I am so privileged to be able to be doing what I love for my job.
I started my animal training journey in 2014 studying Animal Management at the amazing Sparsholt College. During this time, I found my passion for animal training and behaviour; being totally fascinated by the science behind why animals do the things they do! I started working towards my childhood goal of becoming a zookeeper and initially specialised in working with a range of exotic and avian species; working in a BIAZA animal collection to undertake behavioural assessments, ethograms and training programmes.
I have been lucky enough to spend time at Jersey’s Zoological collection, ZSL Whipsnade Zoo and Marwell Zoo to undertake further training and gain practical experience within the zoo industry. Alongside this, I have spent time on a working kennel in Northern Sweden, where I trained over 70+ working Alaskan Huskies. While at this elite kennel, topics such as performance, training, behaviour, anatomy and physiology, and nutrition were covered. I also had the once in a lifetime opportunity to drive a team of dogs across the arctic circle – this is something I will never forget! After spending time at the racing kennels, and over the course of various animal behaviour and welfare modules within my education, I realised that my calling was for companion animal training and education.
I am a huge nerd when it comes to animals. I am constantly watching, reading or listening to the latest updates within the animal care sector. There is so much misinformation available when it comes to dog training; it really is a minefield when it comes to finding ethical and trustworthy advice. Because of this, I feel it is important to be continually studying and furthering my knowledge within the sector. This also ensures that the methods I use are the most up-to-date and ethical as possible; which is something of great importance to me. If you would like to know more about my educational history and qualifications I hold, please follow this link.
Outside of my studies, and The Wantage Pet Company, I love nothing more than going on adventures with my Welsh Sheepdog, Mia. I’m always up for a chat, so don’t be shy to get in touch!
All the best,
