Sally Newson CPCT

Since living in the states for 15 years and having most of that be with a family and their 2 Sally Newsonamazing dogs, I found they were my passion and decided I wanted to work with them and make a career out of it.
These dogs were English Labs, a black and a yellow and they were polar opposites in personality but both so loving and fun. I walked them every day in woods, on a beach and they often joined friends and me on long hikes.

I grew up in England having a dog (a rough collie), many cats and several horses in my life so being around animals brings me comfort.

Upon returning to the UK 4 years ago I have decided now is the right time to get this career up and running. I’ve had a busy 4 years including 3 house moves, meeting and marrying my husband, Edd, having my baby boy, William, who’s now 2 years old, and settling into my new life back ‘home’ in the UK.

My great friend is a DogSmith in the states and I strive to be as successful and busy.
Becoming the first licensed DogSmith in the UK is such an exciting venture! I’m honoured to be the first and hope that more people will follow me.
