Robert Baikie

OFFICE MANAGER

I joined the Braid team two years ago as office manager and enjoy working with such great colleagues. I have owned cats for over 20 years or perhaps that should read the cats have been human owners for this time. I took the plunge 9 months ago to add a flatcoat retriever puppy to the mix and my word, what a life-changer with the daft mutt taking over my life and I now feel somewhat exhausted most of the time but he does bring a smile to my face. Any spare time left over will see me imitating an athlete on the local squash courts and hill walking.

OFFICE ADMINISTRATOR

After working within the Hospitality Industry for a short period, I decided to opt for a career change and a new challenge. I joined Braid Vets in   January 1999 and worked as full-time receptionist for 7 and a half year. As the needs of the business have changed, so has my role within the practice. I   now work in our small, but busy office as an Assistant Practice Administrator. My spare time is spent looking after my young daughter and new born son.

I started working for Braid Vets as a receptionist in July 2014, it's a role that I really enjoy.  My spare time is spent with my own 4 dogs, I have an ageing Border Collie and 3 Flatcoated Retrievers.

I breed, show and compete in agility with my dogs, which is great fun.  I am a fully approved obedience instructor (up to gold level) with the Academy of Dog Training and Behaviour, I also have a certificate in Canine Psychology and I am a qualified Kennel Club agility judge.  I also run the pet dog training classes for Braid Vets.
