Pets Need A Life Too is unique!

A one-stop-online-shop dedicated to the enriching the lives of your pets, Pets Need A Life Too is owned and run by Gillian Shippen, a qualified Veterinary Nurse with a passion for animal behaviour.

Gillian became interested in environmental enrichment when she invited a Rottweiler called Cole into her life and began to develop ways to keep him entertained.

Gillian is the author of 'Pets Need A Life Too... A guide to enriching the life of your pet - Series one: Dogs'  an introductory guide to environmental enrichment written for the new dog owner as well as the experienced dog owner looking to understand their pet's behaviour.

"This book is excellent and very much needed for the everyday pet owner.  I am really pleased that someone within the veterianry industry has taken the time to write this sort of book.  I look forward to Gillian's next two titles"  (Dr Robyn Stokes, Rose Park, South Australia)

It was after the success of her book, that the Pets Need A Life Too website came into existence.

Dogs, Cats, Horses, Birds, Rabbits....
