Anna trains and leads the team to maintain our quality of care and professionalism in all of the services we offer.

Our Story

Long before she started working with all creatures, big and small, Anna was a proud dog owner, spending over 14 years looking after Austin the English Cocker Spaniel.

Like many dogs, Austin suffered from a range of illnesses including liver disease, cancer, Cushings disease, pancreatitis, skin allergies, permanent ear and feet infections, as well as behavioural issues such as severe separation anxiety and dementia.

Special diets, daily wound dressing, management of parasites, medication application and ongoing training has given Anna a great appreciation for the demanding needs that our furry friends can have on our lives.

After a corporate career in Marketing, Events and Sponsorship, Anna utilised her business skills in the animal health and welfare industry. By undertaking a range of animal behavioural, nutritional and ecological studies, her passion for high quality animal care has resulted in the creation of Urban Herd over five years ago.

Since then, the business has coupled with a multitude of private contracts within animal welfare, animal nutrition and dog training organisations in order to utilise our team’s diverse range of knowledge and interests.
