About Me


Hi, my name is Tracey. Yappy Chaps is managed and run by myself and Poppy - my Golden Retriever - whom I adore. Poppy just loves her job as senior partner to Yappy Chaps, as she gets to go out on great adventures with her doggies friends every day! I began my business by spending a lot of time helping a close friend out with her doggie day care and dog hotel in Sussex. This is where my love and passion for dogs grew. The dogs made me laugh and smile so much and being in nature was an extra added bonus.

So I decided to set up my own dog care business and to this day I have never looked back. In my previous employment I spent many years teaching outdoor pursuits, such as mountaineering, rock climbing, kayaking, sailing etc. in some of the most beautiful areas of the UK.

Safety was of paramount importance in this line of work and I carry this through into my day to day running of Yappy Chaps.

Fun was also big on the agenda and this is what all the dogs in my care have, plenty of fun.
