The Team

Karen & Steve
The Owners

Since 2013, we have been the proud owners of Ewloe Kennels, Cattery & Rabbit Retreat. Our aim is that we want to make every guest that stays with us as comfortable as possible so that you can leave them knowing we will do everything to make sure they are as happy as can be.

We feel very proud of our facility and the strength and dedication of the team that make sure that each and every one of our guests have the most enjoyable experience whilst in our care. So without further a do, let us introduce you to the team that we think is most definitely, the friendliest, most caring, seriously funny and without doubt, experienced team you could ever wish to have look after your pet:

Rachel
Our very own Dog Whisperer

Rachel just loves to be in and amongst our canine guests. Boisterous or nervous, young or old, Rachel knows just how to win them over. She will spend ages sat in a kennel making sure they are settled in and that they can trust her and when that happens it is big kisses all round (for the dog)!

… and in case you are wondering, 2008. Before that she was arming herself with a myriad of relevant qualifications including 3 years at Northop college reading Animal Management and a further 2 years at Rease Heath College gaining a foundation degree in Animal Management, Animal First Aid and most recently Basic Dog Grooming.

Joscelyn
Ice Woman – She NEVER feels the cold!

A hardworking, methodical and reliable team member. Jos can be found in the kennels tending to all the needs of our guests. Whether it is brushing their coats to make sure they look and feel their best, picking up poo in the exercise yard or washing down the beds there is nothing that Jos will not do to make sure everything is spick and span.

Jos joined the team in 2015

Kristen
Eh Up!

The draw of the Welsh hills was just too much to resist. In 2017 Kristen swapped her role of looking after the medical needs of inmates in Leeds prison, as a nurse to caring for our, far more appreciative, guests here.

Sian
Our Giggler

A graduate of zoology, Sian joined the team in the Spring of 2016, on a temporary basis. However, she is such a great addition to the team that she is now a permanent fixture around the place!

Tia
Our Young Gun

A student at Northop Animal College, Tia joined us at the end of 2018. A force to be reckoned with, Tia will try anything and always gets stuck in and always with a smile on her face.

Kadie
Our very own David Bailey

Once all her animal duties are completed you can often find Kadie taking photographs so that our owners can see how their pets are getting on. Kadie joined the team in 2019.

Some other faces you may see bobbing around

Mum (Janice) and Dad (Brian) can be seen tending all the gardens and hanging baskets. It is thanks to all their efforts that our grounds are as colourful and vibrant as they are.

As well as all the gardening Dad is our very own ‘Meeter and Greeter’ he will happily show you to reception if you are a first timer or just generally pass the time of day. He is also the proud owner of the 24 chickens (his ‘Girls’ as he calls them) that run alongside the kennels.
