Pack Buddies founder Sandra Oliveira is a lifelong dog lover. Spending time at her family’s farm made Sandra realise she had a special connection with dogs. Quite often she was told off by her grandparents for sneaking their dogs into the house without their permission.
Sandra started working for the best dog daycare in London and soon became the company’s manager and partner. Working with high energy canines in multi-dog scenarios increased Sandra’s fascination in dog behaviour. Attending IMDT courses (Institute of Modern Dog Trainers), puppy classes, first aid canine courses and various dog behaviour workshops makes Sandra the dog professional she is today.
Sandra moved from London to Southampton to explore life on the South Coast and this was when it all started. Not being able to be away from dogs, “my best friends” as she calls them, Sandra decided to embark on a mission to persue her dream; to open a truly unique doggy daycare in Southampton aiming to stimulate dogs with much more than just a garden.
Her vision was to create a natural stimulating environment where dog’s welfare was the priority as well as providing dog owners total peace of mind. Sandra didn’t want to offer just a service, she wanted to be the dog’s extended family.
Created out of love, passion and dedication, Pack Buddies was born.
