CLAN CHIEFTESS - TAMMIE

Hi, my name is Tammie and I am the founder and Clan Chieftess at Clan Canines. For over 5 years I have headed up the Edinburgh division of Clan Canines, but I am now creating a new division based in Castle Douglas - Clan Canines Stewartry.

I hold qualifications in Canine First Aid, I am insured through Cliverton and registered with Edinburgh City Council as a professional dog walker. I also hold an Animal Boarding License issued by the council, a Basic Disclosure Certificate and I am continuously undertaking accredited qualifications, courses and seminars to improve my skills. Evidence of all of these are provided at the complimentary Meet & Greet.

On a personal level, I grew up with dogs and have always been crazy about them. As a General Manager in the Hospitality industry for many years, I was unable to have one of my own so I always found myself walking my friends' dogs, to get my 'doggy fix'!

A few walks here and there gradually turned into many and, before I knew it, in 2016 my passion had turned into my career...

As cliched as it sounds, I feel like I've never worked a day since because I love it so much! I am constantly working to improve my skills and knowledge to provide my clients with an exclusive and premium service, giving them total peace of mind whilst their dog is in my care. I am also a proud dog mum to a very handsome Labrador, Malfy.

My dogs are my 'Clan' and are very important to me. Their safety and fun are paramount on all our walks and this means we have some 'Clan Requirements' for new dogs joining our pack. These are detailed on the next page...

ASSISTANT CLAN CHIEF - MAREK

Part of our Edinburgh team, Marek joined our Clan in July 2021 and fast became a firm favourite with our dogs!

As well as leading Clan Adventure Days, Marek is currently undertaking the PACT dog trainers accreditation, bringing together his years of experience with family dogs back in Slovakia, and his own dogs here in Edinburgh. Marek has most recently rehomed a handsome collie x husky called Harris.

As a huge fan of the the great outdoors and, in particular, hiking, Marek often heads up our Clan Chieftain's Crusades, which are weekend adventure walks for our most energetic Clan members!

ASSISTANT CLAN CHIEF - KATIE

Katie has lived in Edinburgh since September 2019 after graduating from the University in Manchester. She grew up with dogs, a Dalmatian and then a Labrador, and now has 2 wonderful collies who have both been part of the Clan for a few years now.

 

When Tammie started searching for new team members, she was delighted when Katie applied as her passion for dogs is clear. 

Katie is a big fan of Canicross and can often be found out running with her two wonderful collies, Lyra & Jax.

ASSISTANT CLAN CHIEF - LUCY

The final member of our Edinburgh team is the wonderful Lucy.  

 

Lucy was desperate to have a dog when she was younger but sadly her parents jobs meant that wasn't possible, so she was delighted to finally get her gorgeous Schnauzer, Cridhe in 2020 after graduating from university.

Lucy is a massive fan of the great outdoors and loves taking Cridhe on all her adventures, including paddle boarding!
