About Team Pawsitive

Owner, Founder and Senior Canine Massage Therapist

Zoë Gan is currently pursuing her love and passion for pets – dogs in particular. Being highly interested in a holistic approach to care for animals, she is now certified as a Canine Massage Practitioner (PetMassageTM Training and Research Institute). A strong believer in continuing education, she is now also a certified small animal acupressure pracitioner (Tallgrass Institute), a Bach Flower practitioner (British Institute of Homeopathy) and also a Pet CPR and First Aid Instructor (PetTech). She also has an honours diploma in veterinary assisting. She has had worked closely with animals at a veterinary hospital in California, and with her gentle and caring touch, many of the pets enjoy her massages and tend to prod her for more.

Although Zoë has a graduate honours degree in Engineering, her love for animals and care with a hands-on nature is moving her towards expanding the horizons of dog welfare and care in Singapore. She is a fun loving and rather adventurous lady who enjoys camping, hiking, scuba diving and cycling.

“When I first started Pawsitive Sensations in California, it was a small venture that I was attempting. Dogs are truly man’s best friend and deserve the gentle physical healing touch of massage. I love to be massaged and my parents always doted on me with their massaging techniques that gave me comfort when I was sick or tense. I want all dogs to be able to have the same loving and healing experience as I did and I aim to provide the highest quality of care to them.

I am very fortunate to have the support of my husband in this business. We own a Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Benny, who has given us his undying love and makes me laugh very often with his cute antics and expressions. He (Benny) is my number one supporter and the most massaged and pampered pooch I know.” – Zoë

Canine Massage Practitioner & Team Manager

Michelle Lim apprenticed under Zoe & Linda and has been with Pawsitive since early 2010. The unconditional love her two dogs, Bubu & Coby, have showered her has inspired her to do more for the canine community. With the undying support of her family, she pursued a career in canine care after leaving corporate work. She is also a freelance dog groomer.

Marie Hogan’s life was transformed from the moment her Jack Russell Terrier, Stoli, ran up to her the first time they met. It’s pretty much been happy-ever-after for the whole family ever since. Through living with and learning from Stoli, Marie discovered her passion for dogs and after meeting Zoe , she began her apprenticeship. She has never been happier and has not looked back since. She now has a second JRT, called Princess.

 
 

Assistant Canine Massage Practitioner

Karen’s love affair with animals started with small animals but it took off with larger animal when she adopted her utterly spoilt cat Melty. This led her to jobs at the Singapore Zoo and Night Safari. She finally gave in to her calling to work with canines when she met two abandoned dogs Merri and Pippen. She joined Pawsitive Sensations in 2015 after her apprenticeship.

Linda Lee is Zoe’s first apprentice and started work in 2009. From young, she is an animal lover & has an affinity particularly for dogs. She left her admin job to pursue her dream of working with animals. Coco, her corgi, led her to meet Zoe & Benny and from there she joined Pawsitive Sensations to fulfill her dream. Her experience since 2009 has greatly widened her knowledge on how to cultivate a healthy lifestyle for dogs.
