Our Story

Hello, I'm Kelis! I'd love to hear from you with any questions you may have about Hamiltons Pet Care!

Below is some information about me!


My experience spans from both theoretical knowledge to practical experience. Educationally, I have achieved a Level 3 Extended National Diploma in Animal Management with Science, a Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Behaviour (Hons) and am currently undertaking a Master of Arts in Anthrozoology. These courses have allowed me to study modules like; Animal Learning and Training, Animal Health and Disease, Animal Welfare and Ethics and Animal Nutrition.


Alongside this, I have independently undertaken several certifications including;

  • Pet First Aid for Pet Professionals Level 3 (VTQ) (ProTrainings)

  • Canine First Aid (The Paw-Works)

  • Dog Choking First Aid (First Aid for Pets)

  • Rabbit Care, Behaviour and Welfare Diploma (Centre of Excellence)

  • Dog Grooming Diploma (Centre of Excellence)

  • Introduction to Dog Walking (ISCP The International School of Canine Psychology)


My practical experience ranges from both paid and unpaid positions, along with day-to-day life experience having been surrounded by multiple companion species within my home environments! I have cared for several species whilst growing up including; Dogs, Cats, Fish, Guinea Pigs, Hamsters, Gerbils, Rats, Sugar Gliders, a Bearded Dragon and a Corn Snake. I really aim to treat your pets as if they were my own, no matter the species!


My paid experience includes having worked in a Kennels and Cattery for over 4 years, along with freelance Pet Sitting through different apps, and having a continued part-time role within a Pet Groomers. Voluntary experience includes acting as Training Support within group behaviour class environments, and further Cattery involvement within a Rehoming Centre. Whilst in education I undertook many practical care elements within a Zoological Centre, including interactions with farm, domestic and exotic species.

I have a Full UK Drivers Licence, and am Disclosure & Barring Service checked and cleared. I am a member of the Association of Professional Dog Walkers & Sitters who aim to promote an industry standard in seeking best practice within the profession.
