Silver Linings is a professional pet care and training service, provided by an advanced veterinary nurse, offering home visits, wedding day care and training sessions. We also offer tailor made services to suit your needs.

Claire started Silver Linings to provide exceptional care and training for all pets and to provide support to owners, whether that be to help train a new puppy, care for your cat whilst you are away, or help out with healthcare needs.

Claire is a fully registered and qualified Advanced Veterinary Nurse, with 11 years nursing experience both in first opinion and specialist referral practices. This has allowed her to gain a wealth of knowledge and experience, and also means she can help you manage any ongoing conditions your pet may have, and help with medicating if required. Her nursing experience and her personal contact she has had with her pets her whole life allow her the confidence in all aspects of pet care and she treats every pet as she would want her pets to be treated, as a member of her family. Claire prides herself on having high welfare standards, and incorporates this into her training programs as well, ensuring only positive reinforcement is utilised.

Claire is Pro-Dog Trainer certified, using a games based approach to find training solutions for your dog. She only uses positive reinforcement but takes this one step further enabling you to train your dog and have fun doing it. Whether it be a new puppy that needs basic training, or working on unwanted behaviours, she will implement a training program involving heaps of games which will build your relationship with your dog as well solving the challenges your dog presents. The latest member of Claire’s family is a rescued street dog named Artie who has had to overcome a lot of fears in order to cope living in the big wide world. He has been her inspiration to help others who may be struggling with their dog.

All our services can be tailored to you and your pets requirements. Whatever help you need please do not hesitate to contact us for a free initial consultation.
