Welcome to Animals at Home – Exmoor and Quantocks Ltd! (Established 2005).
Iain and Kathy live on the edge of Exmoor with their young son; they also share their home with saluki cross Duke, and working border collies Bob and Cap.
They live on a mini-farm and manage a very successful flock of commercial mule sheep and pedigree dorsets, and their son has a few herdwicks.
Iain started the company in 2005 after careers in the military and the civilian police services.
He is the day to day animal carer and has studied and is certified in canine anatomy, physiology and clinical health, as well as animal emergency medical care, control and handling. He is also qualified in the DEFRA competencies in animal welfare during transport.
He has studied animal behaviour to an advanced level and is vastly experienced in caring for all domestic pets plus ponies, horses and hobby animals (sheep, goats, poultry, alpacas etc).
His public service experience, efficient military outlook and focus, and his love of animals, all combine to offer the best service possible for you and your animals.
Kathy has had animals all her life with a background in commercial livestock, having trained at Seale-Hayne Agricultural College; later working in heritage farming with rare breed sheep and heavy horses. Kathy has vast experience with livestock, farming and animal husbandry. She has previously owned and ran working dogs while shepherding.
Alongside the pet care and pet transport services, they can also offer carefully selected homes for dog boarding in Taunton and West Somerset; the Hosts being fully assessed, trained and insured.
They provide the complete range of animal care services including dog walking, cat care, equine and smallholding care.
The company operates DEFRA authorised animal ambulances / pet transport vehicles and holds a Type 2 Welfare in Transit animal transport license.
They have a small team working with them which allows the pet care services to include West Somerset and Taunton.
Iain is also the training and support manager for national pet care franchisor Animals at Home Ltd; offering his experience in the public and private sector training and leadership roles, and his expertise in animal care to his Animals at Home colleagues throughout the UK.
