Nicole is the owner/operator of Head to Tail. She knew from a very early age that she wanted to spend her life working with animals and is passionate about helping our furry friends to have the happiest lives possible. Her objective is to help out in any way possible. 


Nicole is a qualified Veterinary Nurse with six and a half years of clinical experience, having gained her Certificate in Veterinary Nursing at CPIT in 2009. In addition to this, she is a qualified Canine Behaviourist and Puppy Trainer, having gained a Diploma in Canine Behaviour and Psychology and a Certificate in Puppy Training through correspondence study via British College of Canine Studies.  In amongst all of this she has also gained her Bachelors degree in Science (Biology) with focus on animal behaviour papers at the University of Canterbury in 2014.




Tina is our administration, walker, trainer extraordinaire! She has owned and operated a dog training and behaviour business in Christchurch, prior to the earthquakes. She is a wealth of knowledge, with having taught many of us in the Animal Care course at Ara Polytechnic for many years. She is kept busy with us here at Head to Tail and our beautiful furry friends but also by her two lovely children. 


Mikayla is our group walk leader and self-confessed crazy dog lady. Originally from Wellington, she has two tiny furry babies who live with her family back home. 
Mikayla was the shift manager and very involved at HUHA (Helping Us Help Animals) welfare organisation and helped with rehabilitation with many cases through the shelter. 

She has a heart of gold and because of this, it doesn't take her long to acquire plenty of doggy admirers! 


Kimberly is settling into life in Christchurch after living in Auckland where she did a vet nursing internship and worked at the council dog shelter. Working in the shelter environment, she developed many skills such as general obedience training, temperament testing and handling of all kinds of doggos. 

As well as working amongst the Head to Tail team, she works part-time with the amazing team at SPCA Canterbury. 

She has a great interest in behaviour and training and will be working with us to enhance the training knowledge. 


Megan is our super mum, both human and doggy kind.

She is our diverse animal lover with a mini zoo of her own at home consisting of dogs, cats, rats, rabbits and a pair of axelotols! 

She is also a qualified Vet Nurse, finishing her studies before becoming a full time mother. Megan also works part-time as a teacher aid so she just has so much love to share.
