Hi, I'm Karen Irwin, owner and founder of The Crate Escape.
I worked in London for an Insurance Broker specialising in Medical Malpractice for 17 years and one day I decided that life was far too short to be so unhappy in your job. That's when I decided to pursue my true passion in life and my dream of working with dogs.
I founded The Crate Escape in 2011 and have subsequently obtained a Diploma in Canine Psychology from Open College, as well as a Diploma in Canine Behaviour from The International School for Canine Psychology & Behaviour (ISCP). I am also extremely proud to be a 1-2-1 tutor for the ISCP. I am currently studying a Level 6 Advanced Diploma in Canine Behaviour with the ISCP.
I am qualified in Pet First Aid and am also fully insured with Cliverton.
I live in Orsett, Essex with my partner Paul, our three dogs Dylan (Dalmatian), Lexi (Chocolate Labrador) and Perdy (Black Labrador), Lorelai the tortoise and Abby our rabbit.
