Hi I’m Rachel the owner of North Dog
I have been around dogs all my life, firstly two wonderful Border Collies and then my beloved German Shepherds, Shane, Heidi and most recently Roxy, they have all taught me so much. Over the last 12 years I’ve been working For Northumbria Police Dog Section as a kennel attendant.
During that time I looked after countless dogs from tiny puppies, boisterous adolescents and mature dogs coming up to retirement. Caring for several breeds, spaniels, Labradors, German Shepherds, Belgian Shepherds, Dutch Herders as well as the occasional cross breed. I also helped run the Northumbria Police breeding and rehoming programmes which was extremely rewarding. Particularly fulfilling was being entrusted to look after Heidi and then Roxy both from the breeding programme on behalf of the dog section, many of Heidi’s puppies are still serving Police Dogs.
