Prestbury Pets was established by Pam Tyers, who has lived in Prestbury for almost 10years and holds an MSc with distinction in Animal Behaviour.
I have always had a love of animals. As I grew older I became fascinated by the behaviours they display and how humans can affect those behaviours.In 2012 reorganisations within the company I had worked in for twenty years presented me with an opportunity to turn what was a hobby and an interest into a career. I returned to university to study for an MSc in Animal Behaviour which I completed, gaining a distinction, in 2013. I have volunteered at Windyway Animal Sanctuary for almost 2 years walking the dogs and caring for cats they look after and aim to rehome. I have also assisted the Search And Rescue Dogs Association by volunteering as a ‘dogsbody’ an essential part of all dogs training in finding real bodies.
I continue to study, learn and follow what remains a fascinating area of science and so I am currently studying with the Cambridge Institute of Dog Behaviour and Training. I am also currently working alongside Clare Brewin (BSc Animal Behaviour and APDT member) of CB Dogs http://www.cbdogs.co.uk/ assisting her in training dogs (and their owners) through positive reinforcement techniques.
Living in Prestbury, I decided to set up Prestbury Pets to provide a level of service suitable to the needs of the local community.
