Michelle

(founder of Muddy Paws)

Dog Walker, Pet sitter and Animal Behaviourist – Falmouth/Truro areas

I have had animals all my life and grew up in a family where we all shared the responsibilities of animal ownership. I have also worked in animal shelters here and abroad, caring for abandoned animals, which was very rewarding and very educational.

I started Muddy Paws in 2012 offering Dog Walking and Pet sitting and then decided to train as an animal behaviourist to ensure that I could provide the animals in my care with the best possible care.

Over the last 5 years the business has grown and I have been joined by some wonderful people, who love animals, and wanted to work with them as much as I did.
