Faith Ivey

Trainer/YTP Instructor

Faith is currently studying Animal Behaviour and Welfare at Hartpury University and has always had a fondness for dogs. Though she has never owned a dog herself, she has always loved being around them and learning about their behaviours.

She has worked as a dog sitter for a few years now, with more clients contacting her this past summer. She has cared for a variety of breeds, staying at clients’ houses and caring for them for what can be over a week of dog sitting, including keeping up with training, walking, feeding, playing, anything that the dog(s) need; but she has decided this year to pursue her dream of dog training, and so she contacted Barking Buds. She is now a part of the Trainer Mentorship Programme and has begun teaching games in classes and can’t wait to start this new journey in her life. She has been with Barking Buds since October 2022.
