- Rehabilitation trainer where she was directly responsible for the practical implementation of training and behaviour modification plans and ensuring optimal welfare of the dogs in the centre. Muzzle training was a frequent part of risk mitigation, for a wide variety of dogs.

Responsible for creating bespoke training and behaviour modification plans for a wide variety of challenging behaviours, including dogs with a significant bite history.

Including dogs that have been involved in court cases or cased significant injuries.

Clara also has a BSC in Animal Behaviour from Liverpool John Moores University and MSC in Clinical Animal Behaviour from the University of Lincoln.

Alongside both her practical and academic experience, Clara has been the guardian of a Muzzled dog, with a bite history. You can read more about Clara and Tollys story under our 'About the movement' tab. 

Clara and Tollys mission is to provide all dogs with good looking muzzles, that meet the needs of the dogs wearing them, and a brand with a strong message. More than just a product, a company that wanted to shake up this outdated market and breathe new life into the muzzle space!

Whilst George doesn't have a background working with dogs, being Clara's partner means he has inevitably been surrounded by dogs for several years! He has been a huge part of TMM behind the scenes since the very start - helping Clara to make muzzles when they were still based in their spare bedroom!

George joined the team full time in February 2024 and is our Manufacturing Manager and lead cheer leader for the whole team! His background as a very accomplished chef means he is meticulous about keeping the unit tidy, well stocked and running like a well-oiled machine! He brings the positive vibes to our team, and the muscle to the piece punching!

George often joins us at events and fitting days where he loves to engage with customers and he will always be the first person to snuggle some dogs (plus he will keep the team super well-fed at our accommodation)!

George shares three gorgeous dogs with Clara - Atlas the bully mix, Pig the Cavalier x Westie and his beloved Neli, a Bulgarian rescue dog.

Bex has been working for The Muzzle Movement since April 2023 and became a full time member of staff in September 2023. Bex started working with dogs as a kennel assistant in rescue kennels in 2017 where she was responsible for implementing training plans, improving the welfare of dogs living at the centre and giving them the tools to thrive in their new homes. She now also works at a college as an animal technician, where she cares for 30+ species and teaches students about canine behaviour and care. 

Bex has two rescue dogs, one of which will bark, lunge and snap at unfamiliar people with a bite history, he wears a muzzle for nail trims and veterinary handling. Her other is extremely sociable but still wears a muzzle in the garden occasionally because he will eat rotten fruit that's fallen from surrounding trees.

Bex predominantly helps to assemble muzzles, she is responsible for tracking and updating stock but she also does help with customer support and product testing.
