Our love of our animals in the UK is expected to see the value of the pet services market reach £2.1 billion by 2023 – a 25% increase from an estimated £1.7 billion in 2018.
This is hardly surprising given that 25% of the nation’s households now own a dog, amounting to 9 million dogs. (Source PFMA)

Having worked in a job role where I had to travel around the country and stay away from home on a regular basis, I was continually under pressure to have to ask my family and friends to look after my gorgeous chocolate Labrador Jaffa and mischievous Beagle Rigby. I didn't want to use kennels and I felt so guilty about leaving them when I had to be away from home. Realising that there are a lot of dog owners in the same position, I decided to launch a business that combines my love of dogs with a professional service, giving dog owners reassurance that they no longer have to worry about being away from their pets. The business has gone from strength to strength and now I can offer our successful business model across to dog lovers everywhere that are looking for a new direction in life.
