Dog Walking in Taunton Team Manager!
Friends for Pets Taunton dog walking team is managed by Kim. Kim joined the Friends For Pets family in March 2018 when the Bridgwater Team was first set up and now manages both the Bridgwater and Taunton teams. She has a lovely group of regular clients and has also been running the Bridgwater social media pages since February 2020. When the opportunity to manage the Taunton team was offered, Kim was first in line to offer her help and share her experience. Having lived in Somerset all her life, Kim has a good knowledge of the local area. She lives with her son, daughter and their ex-stable cat, Storm. When she’s not out dog walking with one of her fantastic clients, Kim can often be found at the side of a football pitch cheering on her son’s football team, spending time with family and friends or at the stables watching her daughter ride. Kim has always had a love for all animals and this really shows in her work. Whilst growing up, Kim always had pets at home – Mainly cats, but also tropical fish, rabbits and rats. Kim has also had mice, hamsters, gerbils, goldfish and land snails as pets. As a child, she helped with her aunty and uncle’s rough collies, going to national dog shows with them and being first in line to help with puppy socialization whenever they had a new litter of pups. As well as small animals, Kim has experience with larger animals too. As a child she spent many hours helping at local riding stables in return for extra riding lessons. Kim has spent a large part of the past three years helping at a private yard, with a horse and pony on part loan for some of that time. Kim previously worked as an administrator but, when returning to work after having her two children, decided to fulfil her lifelong dream of working with animals. Prior to joining Friends For Pets Kim was a Branch Co-Ordinator for Cats Protection, which gave her an insight into management, animal welfare, marketing and compliance with legislation within the pet care sector/industry.

EmmaEmma joined Friends For Pets in 2020 when the Taunton team was first set up. Emma’s love for animals started at an early age, talking her parents into letting her have, at different times, guinea pigs, gerbils, a hamster, fish and a tortoise. She also spent many hours walking friends’ dogs until she was able to have her own. At the age of three she started riding ponies and on leaving school decided that she wanted to work with horses. She went on to study the Science and Practice of Stud and Stable Husbandry and train to be a riding instructor. Her first dog was a rescue Border Collie, followed by a Lurcher puppy from the RSPCA and she and her family now have a very loving and energetic Collie x Spaniel. The rest of her menagerie, at present, consists of a very special, 35 year old Appaloosa mare, 2 stable cats, 4 Pekin bantams and 2 pet Shetland sheep/lawnmowers. There is never a dull moment with all their individual characters and endearing ways! Emma always enjoys meeting and getting to know new furry, feathered and four-legged friends; she has a firm belief that being with animals is one of the best therapies ever and is very happy to working for Friends For Pets and being able to offer her services in order to help customers with any of their pet care needs.
