We've chosen 5 dog/human pairings as ambassadors to represent our growing brand. We've chosen them for different reasons, R+ training, starting dog sport activities, local adventures, daily fun and beautiful records of all of the above.
We also have some product testers coming! Including our friend and mini adventure dog Pom-Bear!
WHAT IS A JINKS AMBASSADOR?
THE DOGS AND HUMANS ARE PART OF OUR LITTLE TEAM!
Being a JINKS ambassador means the dogs and their humans represent our brand and help get our products and our name out there!
We send out products for them to include in their daily routines, to review and to share with their followers. They also have a 10% discount code for their followers to use.
BEATRIX AND AMELIA
BEATRIX: ~1 YEAR OLD COONHOUND
Believe it or not, Bea is only ~ 1 years old, she's massive and has the ears to match! She also has such a playful and goofy nature - we've had the pleasure of meeting her a few times.
Amelia is a vet nurse and training to be a vet, we're not quite sure how she fits that in alongside all her adventures - like man-trailing! Quite an accomplishment!
She also lives with a Manchester Terrier
(who is not so massive)!
Amelia and Bea are currently on holiday - we'll update their bio once they're back in normal life. They deserve some time off!
Dave and Rachel
DAVE: 10 YEAR OLD MONGREL
We have watched Dave and his human, Rachel on their journey for a long time as Rachel is a huge advocate for positive re-enforcement training and is passionate about sharing her force-free journey!
We were thrilled when they applied to be JINKS ambassadors as we feel Rachel as worked so lovingly and that Dave is a great example of a dog building confidence with a force free approach - even if they are a little bit older older!
Here's what Rachel has to say about Dave and herself:
“I adopted Dave to the UK last year, after he had spent 7 years in the shelter in Singapore, since (~ 2 years old!). I had known him for over 2 years as a volunteer prior to adopting him, and I fell in love with him. Back then as a volunteer, I walked and trained with Dave every weekend. We worked on his dog reactivity, muzzle training, crate training, and simple tricks, all using positive reinforcement and force-free methods. The experience with him, along with some other shelter dogs, led me to want to become a dog trainer. I attended the Victoria Stilwell Academy last year and graduated early this year. I am now just starting up my dog training business, Dog At Heart, offering online training, in-person private lessons, as well as day training. Dave has been the best canine educator and training partner for me, and we continue to train together with positive reinforcement and joy till this day.”
Olive and liliana
OLIVE: 5 YEAR OLD LEONBERGER
We met Olive at one of our first market eventsn and have kept in Instagram contact with Liliana whilst she has given us lots of support!
Olive is a gentle giant and often has adventures dogs of all sizes. Plus Liliana has a new pet photography business, 'Lili and Lion'! She has been very supportive of our business from the start.
We hope to show that no matter the size, big or small, all dogs love adventures, training and play!
Bio to come
Pippa and natalie
PIPPA; 5 YEAR OLD BORDER COLLIE
Pippa/Peach/the queen of bleps!
Pippa very clearly loves Natalie and her family (and another dog sibling). We can' wait to meet her one day but until then Natalie shares all of Pippa's personality on Instagram. Be that at home on the sofa, in a canoe, or on top of a mountain. Natalie is a dog walker with her own dog walking business, so Pippa gets about!
We love the photos, videos and blogs her human puts out there and also love watching the care taken with Pippa and her hip dysplasia. It's clear to see why they both have quite a following online!
Bio to come
Toby and Kirsty
TOBY: 9 MONTH OLD BLACK LABRADOR
Toby is our youngest 'recruit' at just 9 months.
We have loved watching his training, right from the floppy puppy start! Kirsty shares their journey and training process online and its fun to watch them succeed and go forward! Kirsty works for a company that maintains and protects local natural areas - great walks for Toby!
We hope Toby knows how lucky he is to have such a fantastic start in life & be built up to a wonderful well adjusted adult dog!
Kirsty also has plans for more detailed content online - watch their space!
