(me, kk xing and foxy) we have our first customer who we have been walking once in the morning and once in the evening and thats all week. they are a hv and a gsp, lovely boys! and there owner is a lovely women, and is already booking them in in november ;D we got our uniforms back yesterday, i love them!!!!! ;D the only thing we are waiting for is our leaflets, but we will have them soon then we can get out and spread the word! we may only have one customer (we do have another couple lined up) so far but it is a start and we havnt really advertised yet so i hope it will only get better 🙂October 25, 2007 at 8:58 am #108041
Don’t forget to put details up on lots of websites like gumtree ;D
The more links and mentions you have on websites – the better… because people googling will find you easier ;D ;D
also put notices up in the local vets – i went to ours for a list of dog walkers when we first got Loki… not that they had any ::)
Sounds good though 🙂October 25, 2007 at 9:10 am #108042
And don’t forget the pet shops and post office
Good Luck girlsOctober 25, 2007 at 9:11 am #108043
re: your website – i wouldnt advertise it anywhere until you have finished it, many people dont bother checking back again if they hit a holding page.
are you insured and animal 1st aid trained ? (just nosy)
good luck !!
ETA: who did that holding page !!!!! lol – padding.gif indeed !!!!!!!!! dear dear me !!! i hope u didnt pay…October 25, 2007 at 9:20 am #108044
Hey your first customer,if she is happy with you,I am sure her good words will spread to other peopleOctober 25, 2007 at 10:33 am #108045
I am so jealous – I would love to do something like that – just need some back up money first. How did you start, what made you do it? Tell me all the gossip – you can email me if you like.
