About me!

Kate Toomer (BCCSDip.DogBhv & Dip.FDAg) – Founder/ Owner of Dogs Club.


 I am married and I live in Hove and simply adore my 8yr old black Labrador named Jasper.

After years of owning/managing retail catering/coffee shops, I eventually decided to follow my passion to work with Dogs.

I have a natural affinity with Dogs and a great affection and respect for their welfare.  I invest an enormous amount of effort to ensure that all the dogs are well cared for and well handled as well as spending additional time to provide an extra special service for my customers.

I’m a qualified Fun Dog Agility Coach.   I run local monthly ‘Pop up Agility Parks’, 4 week Beginners Courses and Handling Classes.  (See our Fun Dog Agility page for further details).

I am also currently Chairman of Brighton Dogwatch, who are an incredible non-profit, local constituted group, primarily based on facebook with the support of  a tremendous following of over 12.5k local people, helping reunite lost and stolen dogs in and around our region.
