About Our Company

Sample imageIn 2012 Pickles Pets was born. Having worked for the past seven and a half years in Early Years Child Care and Education I decided to return to my passion, that of working with animals.
On leaving school I worked at Goose Green Kennels. (Now the Blue Cross Centre.) I left the kennels to start a family and once my eldest son started school I returned to work working part time in a pet store in Bitterne handling small animals, birds and a parrot called Charlie along with my other duties of helping customers and cash handling.

I left the pet store to work for Guide Dogs for the Blind where I spent many happy years in kennels and gained my kennel management certificate dealing with lots of breeds of dog from Labrador's, Retriever's to Shepherd'€™s, Labradoodle's, Leonberger's but to name a few. Read More

You may not drive or taxis want to charge extra for your pet, it may be a long distance that your pet needs to travel.
