LEAP’s Meet Our Team series features Marley, an 11-year-old labradoodle who’s a very good dog indeed.
Can you tell us about your role at LEAP as Head of Wellbeing?
My role in the office? Bringing a smile to everyone’s faces.
What’s your routine?
Saying ‘Hello’ to everybody in the office, quick nap, then having a walk in the park followed by a bit of lunch (making sure I check everybody’s bins for any unwanted leftovers). Another quick nap, then meetings. Finally, train home.
How did you get your job? Did you have any special training?
I got on well with colleagues when visiting the office and got the opportunity to come back regularly. Also, I did a six week ‘recall’ training course when I was one-year-old which left me in good stead for travelling around London.
What do you enjoy most about your life at LEAP?
I love the attention and will always lean in for a stroke.
What are your favourite places to hang out in the office?
I like my dog bed beside the Film and Post team or stretching out on the carpet.
Do you have any hidden talents or special skills?
Knowing who needs to de-stress with a canine cuddle and finding scraps of food in the bins.
Do you have any hobbies or special accomplishments?
I won second prize in the Waggiest Tail Competition at the Heartwood Forest Festival. I have many rosettes at home above my dog bed.
What’s your favourite animal-friendly place in Clerkenwell?
St James’s Church Garden and Spa Fields are great for meeting other dogs.
How do you stay motivated, or in other words, what keeps your eyes bright and tail wagging?
I have several favourite toys – my newest one being a chewy mince pie-shaped dog toy.
I also enjoy playing games like retrieving the tennis ball. Sometimes, I’m allowed to sleep and snore on the sofa.
