Lou Johnson is our Dog First Aid Franchise Partner for Central Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire.
Lou is originally from Sheffield. Formally a professional dancer, she moved to London and then out to Hertfordshire many years ago.
Lou lives in rural East Hertfordshire very happily with her two dogs Doris, a Jack Russell Terrier and May, an English Springer Spaniel who she loves more than anything!
Lou has worked in the City Corporate world in London for a number of years now but her true love is animals. Having attended a course herself as a dog owner, she was so impressed and wants to spread the word!
“I came out of the course buzzing and felt a real need to make sure that everyone has the information to help save the lives of dogs in their care”.
As an experienced trainer herself, Lou is now combining her passion for dogs and education with this venture.
Lou has had several experiences herself where the knowledge from the course has really counted. One example is when May badly cut her paw on flint whilst out on a walk. Knowing what to do and not panicking made a huge difference to both of them!
On an earlier occasion the event of one of her dogs suffering from Heatstroke would have been better handled and probably avoided. It would certainly have been less stressful had the course been done beforehand.
Lou is currently half way through a Diploma in Animal Healing and also works in rescue centres an with dogs in a kennel environment. Lou has had previous training and has shadowed Franki on courses.
