The Doggyland Story

I have been around animals all my life but dogs have always been of a special interest to me, I am passionate about them and how to give them the best life possible with their human family. Here is how Doggyland started

In 2008 I travelled to Thailand to volunteer in a gibbon rescue centre for 6 months, I loved it and loved learning and interacting with gibbons. I then volunteered at the ENP (Elephant Nature Park) in Chang Mai followed by more volunteering at the WFFT (Wildlife Friend For Thailand).

In 2010 I volunteered in Indonesia at the Tasikoki wildlife rescue centre looking after wild animals such as orangutans, leopard, crocodile, monkeys, tropical birds, bears and much more.

In 2011 I was offered a job as assistant manager into a dog shelter on Koh Lanta for 8 month where I was in charge of the 30+ dogs and I was also training volunteers to work safely around the dogs. I enjoyed the challenge and this job is what started my career with dogs. This is where I learnt dealing with dogs is not just about being the pack leader but also about trust and respect of each other.

In February 2012 I moved to Scotland where Doggyland social school was born
