Catriona : PetStay Highlands & Moray Branch
“When I read about the PetStay franchise model I thought it sounded perfect for me, I think the idea had been simmering for a while before things fell into place.
I loved the first few months of setting up PetStay Highland & Moray, starting with training which explained, amongst other things, the best way to find carers and how to market the business. I was surprised at the interest from potential carers from my first few adverts in a couple of local newspapers; we were up and running within a few weeks after carers had received home boarding licences from their local council. I have a lot of repeat customers, so the branch keeps growing – I now have 25 carers and they’re as busy as they’d like to be. I speak to my carers regularly which is usually a fun part of the day, as are the dogs that also board with me. No day is ever the same, what could be better?”
