About Me

My name is Alicia Strauss. Ever since I was little I’ve had a passion for working with animals, especially dogs.

I started volunteering part time at Ash Farm Kennels when I was 14 years old. I have now worked full time at the kennels for 10 years, working with a variety of different breeds, sizes and temperament.

Canine hydrotherapy is such a rewarding job knowing I’ve had part in helping out my clients and being on the journey to recovery with them. My boss has always told me ‘if you love what you do you’ll never work a day in your life’ – I can say I love what I do!

In 2010 I went to Reaseheath College to study Level 3 Extended Diploma in Animal Management.

In 2020 I achieved my Level 3 Certificate in Hydrotherapy for Small Animals at Hawksmoor College.

I’m a member of NARCH (National Association of Registered Canine Hydrotherapists)

I have a beautiful Sharpei x Jack Russell called Ozzy who is 11 years old and will always be my first baby boy.

Also I have a handsome son called Theo, who is obsessed with water and dogs like his mum!
