Cotswold based support organisation for pet professionals

Pet professionals network


Back in 2017 I, Helen Motteram created a support group, one which was people focused, a place you could feel safe to ask questions, seek advice without feeling like you are being judged or criticised. As the support group expanded I found many people were coming across the same issues over and over again…

"I’m struggling to find clients"

"I’m working night and day with very little time for my own pets"

"I wish I could be as good as trainer X"

"I’m struggling with my prices"

"I want to push my business to the next level but don’t know where to start?"

With a background in counselling, mentoring and business coaching, Helen combined my skills and love of people and animals which was the beginnings of a very special community. She knew there were lots of online marketing courses and great organisations out there focusing on the training and pet care side of our industry, but no memberships or organisations that combined marketing, business and personal development.

The Pet Professional Network was born!
