After a serious accident I was unable to continue with my music career, which I have found very difficult to cope with, music was everthing I wanted to do and all I knew. After a number of years coming to terms with this I knew I had to find another passion and when Dita my dog came into my life, she literally changed everything! Animals really to have to the power to heal.
I need your help to start up a new business, offering a better service and overall health and wellbeing when it comes to taking care of our pets. I feel very passionate about ensuring my neighbourhood has a place where they can find exactly what they need and know their pets are being well looked after. I would like to offer extened services to those who may not always be in a position to afford expensive treatment, by working with local vets, working with local dog trainers/behaviourists, as well as trying to offer a more environmentally friendly approach to how food is bought, to ensure waste is kept to a mininum. I have so many great ideas to grow the busineess that I know initally I need to just make the first step in opening the shop. I have found a perfect unit where at present there are no pet shops close by in a very central location, near to a park where many dog owners/walkers go to. There is a real sense of community and a real need for a pet shop in this area.
Maybe this has been your passion too and you would like to get involved in my business venture, maybe you are a dog groomer who is looking for a space to rent, maybe you design your own dog outfits, collars, leads etc , bake your own dog treats/food and looking to promote what you do. It would be great to provide a unique and most importantly a personal touch to eveything the business would offer to the local community.
