Welcome, (2020 update) from myself Alison, aged a 40 something I started the business in 2012, a geordie from Newcastle we moved to Consett 10 years ago after coming to view a house and liking the surrounding countryside. We have two dogs, a working cocker and a whippet.
Previously I worked in hotels and travelled and lived in Cyprus, before training as an adult nurse working as a scrub nurse in theatres and ward based vasucular surgery and then palliative care.
Deciding I wanted to be my own boss and a change to fit working hours around the kids I looked into either aesthetic nursing or a pet care business and chose the latter, something I've never regretted and absoutely love!
At one stage the business became a little too successful and i was working 7 days a week with few holidays as we were licensed for boarding at home by the council and I also did a lot of cat sitting visits. Now I just concentrate on the dog walking services, and it never really feels like work when you do something you love and are passionate about, despite the rain, wind and snow!
We are in the process (covid 19 on hold) of moving
back nearer to Newcastle to strike the right balance - being near to family again and for the kids Uni and college and running the business up in Consett.
