About me

My Name is Verity Mockford and I am absolutely obsessed with dogs! Since a young age my passion has happily taken over my life!

When I finally decided to pursue a career in dogs, I was 14 years old and start work experience at the Sussex Canine Centre where I became an under study in grooming and behaviour. This then lead to working in kennels, rescue centres, doggy day cares, dog grooming salons and so on, which gave me the taste of the business I would like to own, run and teach, this is when I discovered Plumpton college.

I was at Plumpton college for 5 years, enrolling on all the animal care course they could offer me.


*Extended Diploma In Animal Management,

*Dog Grooming 1, 2 & 3 Advance level, (City &Guilds Qualified)

*Canine Behaviour 2 & 3 Advance level,

*Canine First Aid,

I decided to extend my knowledge by taking a Puppy Training course, Canine Sensory Enrichment course, certified Pet Bereavement Counsellor diploma course.

I  decided to go even further! by  becoming a qualified, certified Dog Agility Instructor.

At the start of 2019 I  started a new journey into holistic therapy and have become a Reiki Practitioner, this will be offered to all animals and humans from May. 

I can't talk about my career with a mention of my own furbaby Winnie!

She is my first ever dog and is such a character when we are on our own. I have learnt so much from bringing her up. I can't imagine my career being where it is now without her help!

Took my little Loki back for his 2nd "fancy do" over the moon with it! My little Yorkie is quite the fuss pot, but Verity is amazing with him and achieves the impossible considering he's such a wiggle bum. 10/10 service, super friendly, perfect cut, couldn't be happier x

Took my jack Russell X to verity the other day she was very quick and my little Alfie looked younger then ever before! Highly recommend she had great connection with him as soon as we walked in and even managed to get him
To play with her! It's safe to say he really enjoyed himself and didn't want to go home! Will defo be going back!
