Meet the Team

Alison Bosworth


Director & Bale's Mum

Hi, seeing the impact Bale made to Harry and our family has made me so passionate about the services we can provide to support other families. I have a background in psychology and adore dogs. I love our growing Bale's Buddies family! 




Jodie Stoyle


Dog Trainer & Animal Assisted Therapist

I have been with Bale's Buddies since September 2019. I love   spending time with Bertie my dog, who is training to be a Community Therapy Dog, horse riding, cycling and being outdoors, as I love nature. Animals have always been very important to me and the effects they have on your well being.

Andrea Keefe


Development Manager                        

Hi, I joined the team in January 2020 and I am proud to work for an organisation that has such great ethos as Bale's Buddies.

Seeing how many ways Therapy Dogs can support people is incredible. 

I love being outdoors and am always up for an adventure!

Hi, I love growing crops and flowers on my allotment. I also enjoy kayaking and paddle boarding down the beach in the warmer months.

I absolutely adore dogs and believe they are the key to happiness.

Apprentice - Digital Marketer & Animal Assisted Therapist

Growing up around dogs has really made me appreciate what great animals they are. I hold an NVQ level 2 in Animal Care and Welfare. I’ve also worked in a pet shop, dog groomers and even had my own dog walking business for a while. I couldn't be more excited about being a new member of the Bale's Buddies team.

Director & Bale's Dad

Hi, I grew up working alongside my parents breeding dogs and showing at Crufts. I ABSOLUTELY love dogs!! I've applied all my years of experience on training Bale to help Harry and it is so rewarding seeing all of Bale's Buddies do the same for their people.

Hi I'm Katy, I started at Bale's Buddies in March 2020.

I am foster Mummy to some of the puppies that join the programme. I also own a miniature Shih tzu who was a rescue dog from Cyprus.

I am really enjoying learning the training that we teach the dogs.
