Bente is from The Netherlands originally but grew up in Norfolk. She’s been living in Sussex for 10 years and recently moved to Rusper where she’s enjoying getting to know her new local digs.
She loves taking the dogs to East Court but admits to following the same simple circle around Ashplatswood as to not get lost!
Growing up her Dad had two dogs, Jasper and Bruno. When she had her own home she was excited to get a pup of her own, a Fox Red Labrador called Tyson. She trained him with her partner to be a gun dog and he works most days. She describes Tyson as a big clumsy fool who is amazing with her daughter, Annabella. Bente learnt a lot about dogs through training Tyson, she says ‘’You pick up little tricks and learn that keeping it simple is the best way with dogs. Dogs are so so smart’’
Bente works most Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Lucy has been pet sitting and walking dogs for as long as she can remember. She’s totally obsessed with animals and say’s there’s nothing better than the companionship of a dog at the end of the week, feet up on the sofa with a good book and glass of red. Lucy has lived in and around East Grinstead for almost 8 years and says despite her family being in Cambridge, Sussex feels like home. Her favourite place to take her dogs is the Ashdown Forest. She loves to travel and explore new places.
