Admin, Virtual Support & Trainer
Beth provides virtual support for The Woof Pack Dog Training and Behaviour. Piror to joining the team Beth delivered training classes for Dog's Trust in West Yorkshire putting her BSc (Hons) in Applied Animal Behaviour and Training to good use.
When not working Beth spends her time chasing around her two young children, Ethan and Eliza. If the hours in the day permit, she also enjoys a long walk with the four dogs and hoopers.
My favourite time of the year is Spring into the Summer months, the longer and brighter days mean I can enjoy sunset walks with my dogs.
Dog Walker & Assistant Trainer
Clare joined the Woof Pack Team in 2021 as a volunteer before taking over the dog walking services for the business. When not out with packs of dogs exploring the moorland and views in Calderdale you can find Clare at our classes, learning the ropes of dog training.
In her spare time Clare enjoys travelling the UK with her husband and their cocker spaniels, Max and Patch seeing all the views and dog friendly experiences that the country has to offer.
