The group specialises in the creation of regulated qualifications in the canine and feline sector, and is now “hoping to be crowned top dog” in a national awards vote.
The awards recognise excellence in the dog world in a range of categories, from canine survivors, to workers and campaigners.
Mackay and Gresty will now face a public vote to see if their group is awarded with team of the year for their “commitment to education and raising professional standards in the animal care sector”.
The iPet Network is based in Northwich, Cheshire and launched four years ago. It has reportedly “grown from strength to strength” with the onboarding of over 45 training providers across the UK and Ireland.
Their training team offers a portfolio of Ofqual regulated qualifications in essential animal welfare skill sets from dog and cat grooming, to canine and feline emergency first aid and canine nutrition to name a few qualifications.
Speaking about the awards the duo said: “We are so thrilled to have been nominated for the prestigious award! While awards are not important, it’s so nice to feel recognised for the hard work that we do, because we really do love animals, and care about making changes in training to improve their welfare.
“Thank you to everyone who has voted for us so far! The sky really is the limit for iPET Network and we are proud to put animal welfare at the heart of all that we do.”
