Founded in 2011 The Dog Adventure Company exists to help customers with so many different aspects of their dogs lives. Whether that be Dog Daycare in Lincoln where it all started or communicating with dog owners in New Zealand through our blog. The Dog Adventure Company is family owned and operated and prides itself on a unique and personal experience for you and your dog.
Steves original background was in teaching Outdoor Pursuits such as Canoeing, Climbing and Hill Walking. Then fate intervened and he got his first dog Honey Bee, the original Adventure Dog. Honey Bee was a difficult young dog with aggression and socialisation issues and so Steve looked to find ways of helping overcome her issues. It worked and Honey Bee and Steve are now a team. If you see Steve there is a fairly good chance you will see Honey Bee close by.
Steve now designs all our Behavioural and Training Programs as well as trains all the staff in Dog Handling and Safety around Dogs.
The original Adventure Dog. Honey Bee was taken out of a local rescue Centre, Lincolnsire Rescue Kennels by Steve in April 2007. Her approximate age at the time was 18 months old and she had aggression and anti-social issues. Honey Bee is the main reason the company exists as it was her needs and issues that gave Steve the idea for heling others.
Honey Bee has been an integral part of the all training and behaviour issues that Steve has been involved with since he started this Journey back in 2007. She is leader of of our dogs and loves nothing more than a walk up a mountain and exploring new places!
Blake is our new onsite Manager. Blake originally joined the team a few years ago before taking an opportunity to gain valuable experience managing a rescue centre. Blake has a passion for dog welfare and brings with him a wealth of knowledge to help improve the organisation of the business.
Charlotte first came to the attention of the Dog Adventure Company as a customer. Her Dog Tina at the time was young, boisterous and having problems socialialising. Steve took an instant like to her attitude and calm approach to people and she started working for the Dog Adventure Company in 2012.
Charlotte now operates her own grooming business on site called Greenhills Grooming so now we can offer all our clients a pamper sessions
