Jurassic Bark Harrogate is run by me, dedicated pet lover, Hannah Pagan!

My childhood was pretty idyllic, growing up on a Yorkshire farm alongside a variety of indoor and outdoor pets. As a result, I gained plenty of experience helping to raise several animals right through to adulthood.

More recently, at my home in Harrogate, I have had to settle for a smaller flock of animals with black labrador, Bowie and cats Indi and Daisy.

Owning my own pets has taught me more than I ever expected, and trying to navigate my own dog's behavioural issues led me to complete formal qualifications in canine behaviour and training.

In 2018, I completed my Diploma in Canine Behaviour with the International School for Canine Psychology & Behaviour, which technically qualifies me as a Canine Behaviour Practitioner. Because I'm obsessed with all things dog, I am constantly attending both classroom-based and online seminars to stay stay up to date with modern training methods and research.

  • Canine First Aid Certificate - Led by Rachel Bean RVN
