Here's what some of our franchisees have to say about starting their own Digs for Dogs businesses
I first became interested in
becoming a franchisee for Digs for Dogs
having become familiar with the business as
a home boarder myself. I had first-hand experience
of how fantastic the service was and so the
potential for making a living out of doing
something I had such faith in excited me.
What appealed to me was the idea of working with a variety of people; customers and home boarders
and of course, with dogs. I just knew it
would be the perfect business for me.
From making the initial enquiry to signing
on the dotted line, I could not have
received more support, enthusiasm and
information from the head office team.
Debbie and the team were professional and
personable, and so welcoming.
They answered every question and
concern I raised throughout the process
and have continued to provide valuable
support as my business has grown.
Having no previous experience of self employment I was very nervous about running my own business. However I was extremely impressed with
the standard and quality of the training I received. It covered absolutely everything I needed to know, including IT training, admin processes and customer service skills that have allowed me to build and organised and efficient business.
You are never left to feel that you are’on your own’. Back up, support and idea sharing is constant and available whenever and wherever you require it. Whilst you are left to manage your
business, you always feel part of a bigger team, there to meet your needs as little or often as you require.
I’m living the dream!
I was looking for a complete change of career and being an existing customer of Digs for Dogs I read about the opportunity to become a franchisee in the newsletter and knew immediately that was what I wanted to do!
I hadn’t considered being self-employed before so buying into a franchise provided me with the perfect opportunity to start up my own business, with the support and back up I needed from an established company and fantastic brand.
Accounting, Marketing and IT support has all been given as part of the franchise package and Debbie and the team have been really helpful and given me the confidence that I can build a successful home boarding business without having to know much about the technical side of things.
I joined Digs for Dogs after working in the textile industry for over twenty years. Starting a new business can be very daunting but Digs for Dogs made the whole process seem easy. Every detail was thoroughly explained & training was well organised and professional. To be able to walk dogs every day is a dream come true! My only regret is not doing it sooner, it’s the best job in the world!
