Jemma Whitford

Animal Care Assistant & Cat Advocate

I began working for Calder Vets in July 2015. Prior to this I worked in dog rescue for 7 years and it was here I developed a keen interest in canine behaviour. In 2014 I passed my FdSc in Canine behaviour and training at Bishop Burton College.

I enjoy the mix of both nursing, reception and dog training that I get from being part of the Calder Vets team. I run the puppy training classes "Puppy Club" and "Puppy Smart" at the Lockwood branch and also have my own dog training business.  I am owned by my rescue pets (3 cats and dog).

In my free time I enjoy walking and training with my dog and spending time with friends and family.
