We have a small, close-knit team of dedicated, caring and knowledgeable staff, who care greatly about the welfare and happiness of our guests. Most of our staff are family, and we are all hugely passionate about our jobs!
Coppice Kennels and Cattery has been open for 30+ years, and is now run by Billie Jo, who has been manager since January 2018 after working with the previous manager for one and a half years. Billie grew up surrounded by animals and has cared for a variety of small pets, always having dogs and cats too. She has had a life-long passion for animals and achieved a triple distinction in the National Diploma of Animal Management. When she isn't at the kennels and cattery, she walks and cuddles her cat and two dogs at home, walking them through the lovely local countryside.
Charlie Jo has been assistant manager at Coppice Kennels and Cattery since October 2019 after working here for nearly two years. Being Billie Jo's sister, she grew up with dogs and cats too, as well as all the other small pets. When she isn't at the kennels and cattery, she is caring for her chickens, pigs, sheep and cow at her small holding.
Our kennel assistants all have pets of their own, and this shows in the level of care they give and passion they have for our guests. When they aren't here playing with the dogs and cats they are all studying various subjects at college and university.
