Meet the Team


walking aimee

My name is Fionuala (or Fin for short!) and I started Mollycoddles Pet Care in the Summer of 2011 when I realised that, firstly, there seemed to be a distinct lack of dependable pet care and, secondly, I no longer wanted to work in an office! It was time to follow my life-long dream of working with animals. Since then I have cared for a large variety of dogs and cats. All with different personalities, quirks and needs. I absolutely love what I do and have got to know and build strong bonds with lots of pooches and pussy cats. I have a wonderful Chocolate Labrador called Kayla and I am trained in Pet First Aid.

Here are some of my team…..



I absolutely adore anything with paws!
This is me with my beautiful schnauzer Milly who sadly passed away in lockdown 2 years ago.
I joined the team in April 2021 and have absolutely loved meeting so many wonderful doggies giving them the best staycation whilst their owners are away. I also enjoy visits to check in and look after our smaller furry friends, cats and rabbits.
I live in Solihull with my daughter and partner who are also pet lovers. We live close to a lovely park which is ideal for long dog walks.
In my spare time when I am not looking after our furry friends, I enjoy ice skating, swimming and meeting friends and family.




This is me with Chester and Diesel! We sadly lost Chester in 2021 so Diesel absolutely adores the extra company of dogs boarding with us. We are a very active family in Dickens Heath who will happily do long dog walks every day twice a day if needed. When I’m not walking the pooches I love to do yoga, cycle, run, ski and travel.







Heidi lives with her husband in Hockley Heath very close to the park so ideal for walking her doggie guests. After coming back from Australia, where she volunteered at a dog shelter for 8 years, Heidi missed the contact with her canine friends and so decided to open her home up to pooches needing a home from home environment.





Ruth simply adores dogs, cats, snakes you name it – and she owns all 3 plus tropical fish! After the pressures of a career within the NHS, she now combines a part-time administrative job in the afternoons with dog walking in the mornings so gets the best of both worlds. Ruth is currently undertaking a First Aid course for puppies and dogs and she covers Olton and surrounding areas.

Liz L

Hi I’m Liz. I live in Dickens Heath with my hubby, children and our gorgeous labby Winnie. My ideal day includes lovely, long dog walks so to do this as a job is like a dream come true! If you live in Dickens Heath and need your dog walking or your puppy needs visits whilst you are out then please do get in touch.





Liz T

Hi, I’m Liz and I’m Fin’s assistant.  I love dealing with Mollycoddles clients, resolving enquiries and liaising with our lovely team of boarders, walkers etc.  I have always loved dogs and understand how important it is to have peace of mind our pets are expertly cared for during holiday times, walks and visits.
I currently have an ultra-loving, crazy Springer Spaniel called Ziggy who is six and really keeps me on my toes – especially if he spots a squirrel!
I look forward to helping new and established clients in the future.



Barbara and David

We’re David and Barbara, a retired couple living in Shirley. We lost our lovely little dog Tia in January after 15 years with us.  She was actually almost 19 years old! We are not ready to have another dog of our own just now but love to look after other people’s dogs, our house feels very empty without a dog. We enjoy collecting vintage items and antiquing in general, our home is very eclectic.  David often restores and sells at collectors fairs in London and Malvern.  We also enjoy walking, reading and cinema. 





Hi I’m Heather and I live in Hollywood with my husband, two daughters and Sooty our Jackapoo. He is very sociable both around other people and dogs. Wythall park is just round the corner, plus many fields where we go for our daily walks. I have always loved dogs from a very young age, I grew up with two Jack Russell terriers who both had such character! I’d be very happy to care for your dogs and making them feel at home.




Mark and I have had dogs most of our lives. I had a Sheltie as a child and Mark had a Labrador. We currently have a French Bulldog, Buster, but have also previously had a lovely rescue dog who had been used and abused in Hungary for breeding who we had from charity. She came to us as a scared, really shut down dog. Over the time we had her she flourished. She learned to walk on the lead, she enjoyed rolling in the fields and lots and lots of cuddles. It was a privilege to see her flourish. In my spare time, I enjoy running and ran the London marathon in October 2021. I also love dog walking in our local fields, which are a 5 minute walk from our house and walking over the fields to dickens heath. As a family, we enjoy watching films and always have our dog with us on the sofa. There is plenty of room for more!
