Sounds like it works really well – amazing what you can fit in in one day!! 😉 How long before one of the others is driving then ;D
Very soon hopefully, mandy passed her theory a few weeks back, and its just trying to fit lessons in around our schedule ::)

that sounds a long and busy day but i bet it is very rewarding 🙂
did all the other girls used to work with you at the creche ? i bet its 100 times better now 🙂
i just cannot believe how much my own dog walkers business is growing. in about 18mths she’s gone from walking dogs herself to having about 10 people working for her and is still fully booked on some days !! and … there are quite a few other businesses offering similar things in the area too!
Yes we all worked together and yes it is better now, although we miss the dogs :'(
There are a few companies up here too, but its amazing how many people are surprised when they find out that we’re walkers, the idea has never occurred to them 😀June 25, 2008 at 8:03 pm #108178
Oh well done Many on passing your theory!!! Good luck for when you take your driving test lets hope you pass quicker than I did 😀 :-*June 25, 2008 at 8:06 pm #108179

No I just have to turn them away – cant have someone working with me the way I work – that and people get on my nerves and dont work as hard as I expect them to – would be a crap boss 😉June 25, 2008 at 8:21 pm #108181

Well we’ve been talking to another dog walking company up here, they’re finishing due to circumstances changing and apparently we were highly recommended to take over their customers! ;D
They cover a different area to us for the most part but have given us 5 customers in our area!
So we need a extra pair of hands, but now that she’s on school hols, Laura has kindly agreed to help us out. She hasn’t worked for us for a while but now we’re getting bigger we’re glad of her help ;D :-*July 1, 2008 at 5:47 pm #108186
Great news 5 new dogs and Laura ;DJuly 1, 2008 at 6:10 pm #108187
