Who We Are
Hey there! If you’ve got this far you must be either really interested in us, or really bored- because I can safely say that I’ve never read the About Us section of a business website before…. either way, welcome! We are Alice and James and we run The Naked Whippet. We live in Devon, and absolutely adore the Devonshire countryside that we live in; from the beaches, to the common land to the moor. We are very lucky and very grateful to live in this place of outstanding natural beauty, and we wanted to keep it that way. Alice is a qualified, accredited behaviourist through Guild of Dog Trainers, she is also completing her FdSc in Applied Canine Behaviour and Training through Hull University. She has been training in agility for 14 years, obedience in 8 years, teaching classes for 6 years and running her own buiness for 5 years. For 3 years, she worked as the Puppy Co-ordinator for Dogs For Good, training assistance dogs for disabled people and children with autism. We have our three main pooches, Aspen, Lyra and Pluto, as well as our family dogs Melody, Lacey, Flynn and Bertie and we also have seventeen Hebridean sheep. With the dogs, we do agility, sheep herding, obedience, canine freestyle and flyball – so it’s safe to say that their welfare comes first.
Our mission is simple; to provide ethical and eco conscious alternatives for all aspects of canine care and training. This includes ethical 1-2-1 dog training, eco dog toys, natural dog treats and welfare-focused, luxury, doggy daycare.
I think that we go on about being ethical, eco- friendly, and being sustainable enough that people know these are most of our key values. But they aren’t our only ones. We are an extremely customer focused company and everything we do is designed around this. Every step of the way we want your input, your feedback, your engagement, your constructive criticism – anything you can throw at us! YOU are the driving force behind us, and we will match your enthusiasm and respond to your feedback. That means that if you contact us on socials, we will respond in double quick time, if you email or call we endeavor to get back to you as soon as we can, and the things you as us to blog about or share with you – we do.
Our vision is simple; a world in which everything is sustainable as it can be, particularly your dog products.
So that’s it from us – got any questions? Get in contact!
