Emma Smith - FounderI have had a love for animals from a very young age, growing up with rabbits and guinea pigs, and horse riding on a regular basis. I compete and have trained my horse Dixie, we regularly compete in showing, we have done film work and been in a film, and do dressage and show jumping for fun. I very sadly lost my beautiful dog Lily in December 2018, she was a big part of this business from helping the visiting dogs settle in for dog boarding, to having fun and entertaining the dogs on the group walks. With Lily I attended dog obedience training and agility.In the past I have volunteered at the RSPCA and Conquest Riding for the Disabled. I have qualifications in: Canine Fist Aid Certified; Diploma in Canine Coaching; Diploma in Dog Walking, Boarding and Care; Puppy Care, Health and Coaching Certified; Puppy Development Certified; Diploma in Dog Walking & Canine Care Professional; Level 3 Dog Grooming Professional; and Loose Lead Walking Certified.My degree from Bath University was in Sport Health and Fitness but my love was with animals. E S Pet Care was originally called B & B 4 Pets, I provided home-from-home dog boarding in the Taunton area. When I was running my sports business, my clients kept asking me to look after their pet(s) or to walk their dog while they were away, and this was how E S Pet Care was established.
