Southern Enterprise Awards 2021

38 | Southern Enterprise Awards 2021 “The Covid-19 pandemic has also shifted perceptions on our canine companions, with more emphasis on the mental wellbeing of dogs and the emotional impact that the pandemic has had on us all. After spending so much time with our dogs, we are more aware of the issues they are facing and the impact these issues have on their wellbeing and overall happiness,” Lollie explains. As the animal training and care industry are unregulated, WPC takes great joy in staying up to date with its education and training to ensure its clients are getting the best. Education is the foundation of WPC; without this solid foundation, it would not provide the level of help that it does.
