Mick Denness (Owner)

Mick has been a dog owner all of his life. He worked for a national environmental charity for 25 years before being made redundant. This provided him with the opportunity to turn his passion for dogs into a new career in 2013. Mick was previously a qualified dog handler for Search Dogs Sussex a charity who assists Sussex Police in finding missing and vulnerable people. Mick is the owner of Otto the cocker spaniel (the real boss of the business).

Since establishing this centre we have hosted over 50,000 dog day care visits. Mick prides himself in having recruiting a dedicated team of staff and volunteers who all share his passion for dogs. Mick says “the best thing about the job is meeting such a wide variety of dogs and getting to know their friendly owners”

Here at Daily Dog Digs all of our staff are carefully selected and have experience of owning or working with a range of dogs. In particular they have a strong love of dogs and a desire to help your dog get the most out of its visit. They are always happy to tell you about the highlights of your special friends visit when you come to collect them.

Here are Mick’s Team

Caroline Woodward (Day Care Assistant)

Caroline is our longest serving member of staff and started with us as a volunteer soon after we opened. Caroline also volunteers for the Cinnamon Trust a national charity which provides a dog walking service for old and infirm people who can no longer walk them themselves. She was our first member of staff and simply loves dogs, her last dog was Sheba who she rehomed after her owner passed away.

Megan Fitzgerald (Groomer)

Megan was a Day Care Assistant prior to fully qualifying as a dog groomer and setting up her own enterprise. She is an extremely talented groomer and produces wonderful results. Megan has single handed built up an excellent client base. Unlike the rest of the team Megan is not currently a dog owner. However she loves discussing the merits of different breeds ready for the time when her personal circumstances change and she takes her first step into dog ownership.

Becca Scott (Day Care Assistant)

Becca is a welcome addition to our team. Her friendly personality and love of dogs is apparent to all who meet / work alongside her. Since moving to this area she has accuried a lovely cocker spaniel called Theo, who she just adores.

Jade Richmond (Day Care Assistant)

Jade is our newest member of the team. As well as having Eddie a beautiful cockerpoo she is a hardworking mother of two. She has settled in well and is now a highly valued member of the DDD family.

Megan B. (Day Care Assistant)

Before joining us, Megan worked in a school caring for SEN children. She is also training to become a dog groomer in her spare time. Along with Megan comes Brodie, her lovely, little cavachon. Although new, Megan has seamlessly fitted into the DDD team and we are all looking forward to working alongside her.

Kristy (Day Care Assistant)

Our latest recruit is Kristy who joins us with her German Shepherd puppy Raven. Kristy has been an animal lover all of her life and studied animal care at college after leaving school. She joins us after working in the hospitality industry and has already demonstrated her fantastic skills of being a natural around dogs.

Chloe Mangles (Day Care Assistant)

Chloe is the youngest member of the DDD team. She got to know us through bringing her little dog Bow along to daycare sessions. She is passionate about working with animals and was delighted to be working with the lovely dogs who visit here.
