Layla Flaherty, CEO

Profile

Meet Layla, our CEO, founder of Urban Paws UK, and 'Pawgent' for your pet stars. Layla founded Urban Paws back in 2015 after a successful career as a reality tv star and model. She also holds a degree in animal physiology and has professional qualifications in animal grooming and animal management. She founded Urban Paws UK after noticing a gap in the market for supplying high-quality animal talent to film and television companies and PR and marketing agencies. Layla used her connections and experience as a model to establish herself as an animal agent, and the rest is history. Since then, the company has expanded into the field of pet influencers, won numerous awards, and has an ever-growing team.
