Meet The Team

Russell Marett

The Top Dog

Russell graduated from the University of Exeter with a degree in Archaeology.  Shortly after graduating, he travelled to Greece and Italy to continue his love of ancient history.  Russell also visited New Zealand and Australia to follow his love of nature by becoming a conservation volunteer, an important aspect of his life.  

His experience with animals started from a very young age where he began to handle dogs from four years old in disciplines such as agility and obedience, eventually reaching competition standard where he has had much success.  Russell has had significant experience with a variety of dog breeds both training and handling for nearly 19 years and has been a trainer for a dog training club from his home and one for the former Exmouth Dog Training Club.

Russell is police checked and his certificate is available upon request for your peace of mind.

Ian Leaves

The Assistant

Ian is Russell’s partner and also graduated from the University of Exeter with a degree in Biology. He works as a Research Technician at the University but also assists with the dogs in the business by helping on occasional walks and providing companionship for some of the day care dogs during his flexible hours and those that are boarding with us overnight.

Over the years Ian has learnt about different dog behaviour from the large number of dogs that have passed through our house over the years.
