Meet the team

Want to get to know #TeamStefs a little bit more? We’re proud to introduce you to the team behind Stefs Pet Pantry.

You’ll find a little bit about each team member and their four-legged friends below!

Will Mawby

Hi, I’m Will (a.k.a Mr Stef). I’m the general dogsbody at Stefs Pet Pantry whilst also being the person to rationalise Stef’s latest ideas and bring them to life.

We live with 7 sausages: Tinkerbell, Boris, Gladis, Dolly, Angie, Cookie and Foxy.

My hobbies are basically just tinkering around and fixing/building things. I used to enjoy Land Rover trialling when I had a bit more free time!

If you were an animal, what would you be? Not sure what animal I’d want to be – I’d rather just be a tractor!

Olivia Rishworth

Hi, I’m Olivia. I officially joined the team at the start of 2019. I’ve always loved the idea of working with dogs and first started working at The Rhyddings Kennels aged 13. I’m now 18 and I have my first dog, Horris, who is a Long Haired Miniature Dachshund. Horris is my pride and joy and I’m learning everyday on what I can do best for him. From both the kennels and helping out at Stefs, I’ve learnt so much and still have so much to learn about our canine and feline friends.

Hobbies? Well if I’m honest, work is mine. I like to keep busy and doing something you love makes it easy to be your hobby as well as work. If I’m not working, I’m probably walking Horris, or taking pictures of him or where we have been.

If you were an animal, what animal would you be? I think I’d be a leopard because they are very driven animals, confident and independent, although I don’t think I’d be as quick!

Paige Lawson

Hi i’m Paige and i’ve been at Stefs since October 2020, working on the shop floor at the Bingley Store. You’ll probably know me as the girl with the funky coloured hair!

I have been in the pet industry since i was 16 and i’m still loving it to this day. I’m still learning new things all the time and Raw feeding was one of them when i first joined Stefs.

Working at Stefs has helped me learn so much and i love that i can help people with all of their furry, feathered and scaly family nearly everyday.

Hobbies? baking, baking and more baking! I have a really bad sweet tooth so just love all things dessert related. I just love the fact i can eat something tasty at the end of all my efforts.

If i could be any animal, i’d be my favourite animal, the river otter. They are adorable and so cheeky – which means they can get away with murder. Haha!

Stephen Foulger

I’m Stephen. I live in Ben Rhydding with my wife, Louise, and sons, Cassius (13) and Marvin (9).

We have a Frenchie called Bella who is 9, a ragdoll called Loki and Marco who is a rescue cat.

I enjoy watching the boys playing football and cricket for their local teams, and family walks in the beautiful countryside.

If I were an animal, I’d be a red kite as I’m not afraid of heights.

Paul Whitaker

Hi, I’m Paul. I’m a delivery driver at Stefs Pet Pantry; I started in April 2018.

I’m married with 3 stepchildren and I have a beautiful black Labrador called Mitzy who we got as a rescue.

If I could be any animal I would be a wolf because I love family.

My hobbies include watching and playing football, going on holidays and taking Mitzy to the pub – she loves beer gardens!

Stu Ross

Hi, I’m Stu. I recently started at Stefs as a van delivery driver but I’ve known Stef a while through the dogs and Facebook. Out of work I’m a full time butler, chauffeur and personal assistant to my Rottweilers.

My wife and I run a large worldwide Facebook group for Rottweilers and Friends, with sister groups including raw feeding. My life is all about the dogs with an occasional fishing outing when allowed.

If I was an animal it would have to be a Rottweiler, although a working breed they are usually spoiled bloody rotten and spend most of the day on a tea break.

Steph Morgan

Hi, I’m Steph. I work behind the scenes at Stefs Pet Pantry on a freelance basis, writing content for the website which helps it rank well on search engines. I also design the e-newsletters you receive. I’m a fully trained copywriter & proofreader. I’m quite a perfectionist so if you want something proofreading thoroughly, I’m your girl! You can visit my website for more info.

I have 2 fox red Labs and a very cheeky Dachshund. I take one of my Labs to agility training which is great fun. All of my dogs are raw fed and I’m so passionate about its benefits. If you’re considering raw, definitely give it a go. You won’t look back!

If I was an animal, I’d be a horse because I’m completely horse mad. I’m slowly convincing the hubby that they would be a great addition to our pack.

My favourite place in the world is Florida. Nothing compares to the Disney magic!
