Loraine Rich, founder of Gold Pet Care

Hi, I am Loraine Rich, founder of Gold Pet Care based in Hatfield, Hertfordshire. I am a qualified dog training instructor and dog walker with over 21 years experience. I provide a professional and reliable pet care service that includes: dog walking, one to one dog training, cat, puppy and elderly dog visiting, and also new puppy, expecting a baby and rescue consultations in the Hatfield, Welham Green, Brookmans Park, Welwyn Garden City and surrounding areas.

About Loraine

LoraineI grew up surrounded by many animals. When I became the owner of my first golden retriever puppy Megan I decided to enrol her at my local dog training club, from there I trained Megan and my second goldie pup Bailey to the Kennel Club good citizen dog scheme gold level and had great fun doing so. I was then asked to become an assistant dog trainer then progressed to full training instructor taking regular classes from puppy to gold level.


I have now been involved in professional dog training and walking for over 21 years and some of my qualifications include:

  • British Insitute of Professional Dog Trainers 2nd Grade pass
  • Pet Dog Training Instructors Intermediate pass with Merit

I have also attended many seminars and practical courses relating to dog training, animal welfare, animal behaviour and nutrition to which I hold certificates including first aid. Qualifications and references are available on request.

Peace of Mind

Having worked with all different kinds of dogs from toy to giant breeds and also many rescues. I have taken part in agility training and also take an active role in gun dog training.

We treat every pet we care for as if they are our own and we are happy to discuss any service you may require.

Fully insured, enhanced CRB checked and animal first aid trained.

We aim to help in any way we can so please feel free to call or email to discuss your requirements and we look forward to hearing from you.

My first dog was a border collie named Nicky who was always full of mischief then I became the owner of Max a cheeky cross breed. Now I am owned by Max a Pomeranian cross Chihuahua who I rescued when he was a puppy. I help Loraine with dog walking which keeps me fit and I also get to see lots of beautiful places and I love my walks with some great canine friends.
