 The Moon family opened the kennels at Difford Cottage on the 1st of April 1980, Pippa is still not entirely sure if this was a good move being April Fools Day!

She wanted to work with animals after leaving school and completed a two year course at Sparsholt college to achieve a national diploma in animal management, with a distinction. While at Sparsholt Kelly did work experience at Difford Kennels and then started full-time after finishing the course in 2004. Kelly has since earned the position of manager and is a qualified first aider.

April is a  bit of a dark horse but we hope to be able to tell you something about her soon.

Growing up in a house full of animals it felt only natural to look after them as a career. I started doing pet photography in London soon followed by work experience at my local vet. After that I started working full time as a dog walker amd cat sitter. On moving away from London I knew I wanted to continue working with animals and was lucky to find Difford Kennels, here I continue to learn about dogs and cats and am planning to do a course in pet first aid.
bettina Bettina studied animal care at Sparsholt college. "I have 14 years experience with dogs and cats. I'm a qualified pet first-aider and I've always wanted to work with animals since I was little.
