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!
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!
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!
Hi, I’m Chris. I joined Stefs Pet Pantry a little over 6 months ago in order to pursue my love of food, holistic health and well-being for dogs.
I wanted to be able to study further and take as many courses by those I aspire to be like, and generally follow in their direction and dedication to inspire others to improve dogs’ well-being and health. I want to make it our mission to make all dogs live the healthiest, longest life they can.
Currently we have two Labradors and a Collie cross living in our home. We also have a leopard tortoise.
In my spare time, I like doing anything with the dogs, from training to grooming, but I do grow good amounts of organic food and encourage as much wildlife in as possible. My other main passion is music.
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.
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!
Hi, I’m Bec. I joined Team Stefs in 2018 and haven’t looked back. It was a significant change from life in skydiving management but I continue to be inspired by Stef and her passion and vision of a healthier future for our pets.
I share my home with two cats, Graham and Valerie, and three dogs: Suki, a brindle Akita x GSD, Fred, a handsome golden Labrador, and our most recent addition – Wilson (little Willy), a King Charles Cavalier. I feed around 65kg of raw a month, using a mixture of complete minces and DIY. All my pets were adopted, and we foster for the local rescue Aireworth Dogs in Need.
If I were an animal I would definitely be a llama because of my facial expressions. Outside of work, I spend a lot of time getting muddy walking my dogs, getting dog hair off my clothes, and washing dog towels and blankets. I also like to go wakeboarding, vintage shopping and often take the dogs camping.
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!
