Keeping pets in the home
One of the most important parts of Lindsay’s role is supporting pets and people so that they can maintain a happy and fulfilling relationship.
It’s not always plain sailing though, Lindsay sometimes has difficult conversations with pet owners. “Some pets may need in-depth training and behaviour modification, so having conversations with the owner about whether they can physically do it can be a challenge. It’s difficult for any owner when they realise the relationship with their pet has broken down and they might not be able to care for them anymore.”
Pets are part of the furniture
Lindsay and the team deal with a number of pet related issues and because of this, she’s learnt many things about pet ownership. “I think it’s a privilege to own a pet and I think that’s always one of the main messages I try to get across. When you take a pet home, they become part of the family, so it’s important they’re cared for and have everything they need to keep happy.”
