Knights Pet Care is a friendly, animal loving company, based in Witham St Hughs, Lincolnshire.
I’m Rhianna, and I began Knights Pet Care after working as a dental nurse in the Royal Air Force and relocating to Witham St Hughs in the summer of 2012. Within a month of living with my new husband, we rescued a black Labrador/border collie rescue called Milo.
He instantly became our loyal friend and then our son arrived shortly after. We walked for miles around the village and met lots of other dogs whilst out on our travels. After a quiet year off, we then had the arrival of our border collie girl, Meg, followed by our daughter. I spent so much time walking our own dogs and children, chatting away to other dog owners on their walks. It was a huge part of my life. I embarked on my mission – to help busy families, including my fellow mum and dog walking companions.
As the business grew, I searched for the perfect workers to work alongside me. Katherine, Stacey and Helen are all fantastic girls, with lots of experience between them. They have been DBS checked and have each completed pet first aid certificates. We also hold in house training sessions, where local dog trainer Alison Winters of Pet Potential teaches us about dog handling and other issues.
In December 2019, I completed a pet first aid instructor course and became qualified to teach my own pet first aid classes. The classes can be booked online, and will teach you how to treat minor injuries, and what to do in more serious incidents, such as choking and road traffic accidents.
I am also studying the LLB through the Open University, while raising my beautiful children, who are now aged 6 and 3!
