Meet the Three Oaks Family.
Colin “Mr Three Oaks” Stoneman – Owner
Colin is a life-long dog lover, and opened the kennels through his passion for dogs. You will often find him around the kennels, offering advice to customers and generally being helpful. In the evenings, he enjoys letting the dogs out for their last wees, and shutting them into their bedrooms for the night.
Rashel joined Three Oaks in the Autumn of 2015, although has been a friend of the family for over a decade. Rashel is general manager for the kennels, and loves getting hands on with the dogs. Despite having to spend a large part of her time in the office on the “boring” side, she loves meeting the dogs, and will chat about dogs for days. Rashel has two dogs of her own, Zazu and Saffy.
Gina has lived with dogs since she was 18 months old, and currently owns 5 dogs. She utilises her degree in English through emails and the booking system…and these short paragraphs!
