Pack Leaders – Julie & Arrin

Needham Canine Creche owners and Co-Directors Julie and Arrin were at the height of their professional careers, Julie as a top dermatology surgery nurse and Arrin managing a high value finance organisation. They decided it was time to change their lives and chase their dream, luxury canine care in the UK is booming and they met up with the Canine Creche Group and Needham Canine Creche was born.

Living in the States, (Arrin is American) doggy day care was seen in every town, but when they relocated back to the UK (Julie is from the UK), it was hard for them to find people they trusted to take care of their two Cockapoo’s, Bailey and Charlie, this was seven years ago and this marketplace was yet to materialise.  They felt the dogs were not experiencing the level of care, love, play and mental stimulation that they gained whilst living in the USA, it did not take long for the guilt to take hold.

They met up with Candy Rose of Suffolk Canine Creche where their dogs flourished and they saw how she was changing dog care with her unique and trail blazing way forward, they knew that this was the family they wanted to be part of, it felt like a great fit.

Julie has had the blessing of growing up surrounded by animals from dogs to goats and even had a Jersey Cow!  With her background in nursing, she has a passion for people and caring for all, she is excited to contribute this high level of understanding to your four-legged pooches.

Arrin was born and raised in America, she grew up predominantly surrounded by Springer Spaniels that her Mom bred.  She has a very strong business background, coming from world-class service levels and it was a life goal to follow her heart and apply this skill sets into a business where her passion could be ignited.

The proof of all this experience is to be viewed when you enter Needham Canine Creche, not only will you feel the difference, be greeted differently and your dog cared for to an enhanced level, you will see the level of dedication these two ladies have given to this fully customised facility.  Their quest to secure the very best building was lengthy, they started searching in the summer of 2016, and first viewed this facility in September, lengthy planning and conversion details then commenced.

Following months of training at the Canine Creche Group, they have learnt business critical skills, they can temperament test your dogs, ensuring that well behaved pet dogs, enjoy their day, safely and with love.  They know how to mix the different breeds, sizes and personalities, they are also Canine Behavioural Certified as well as Canine First Aid Trained.
