Giving responsible pet owners the freedom to meet life’s commitments with complete peace of mind is an absolute privilege. I am patient by nature and have naturally high standards.
Before taking on Leading the Way, I spent five years working part time as a dog groomer. Training to be a qualified dog groomer gave me skills to handle dogs firmly but gently and the ability to calm and control nervous behaviour. Being a groomer also taught me that every dog has a different personality and noticing their individual personalities is second nature to me now. The attention to detail and the focus on their well-being is truly rewarding. Because I am a big softie at heart (and I hate to see any animal in distress) I completed a canine first aid course so that I feel confident if an accident happens and remain fully focused on pet safety at all times.
A big kid myself, there’s nothing I love more than to run around with dogs and play games with them. In the Corrigan household we have three dogs: a Cavachon, called Bella, and two Border Collies called Indie and Alaska! They are fabulously fun-loving dogs and just great with the children, which is brilliant because when they are all busy playing together Michelle and I get a much-needed tea break!
After studying for a degree in Zoology, I enjoyed a successful career teaching biology at both secondary school and A level. My experience of working full time in a demanding job whilst juggling a busy family life highlighted the difficulty of finding safe and reliable pet care. Alongside family life I am able to support Andy in our pet care business and enjoy combining my lifelong love of animals with my skills from education.
Leading the Way is all about excellence. A strong focus on the social, emotional and physical wellbeing of pets underpins everything we do. Inspired by the beauty of Lancashire's glorious countryside we relish being at one with nature (whatever the weather!) whilst delivering high-quality care. We provide energetic and stimulating walks, safe and secure transport and luxurious attention at home - all wrapped up with plenty of companionship and fun along the way.
