Introducing Nigel and Bernie Woodhall from Oscar Pet Foods Cheshire

Nigel and Bernie Woodhall talk about their decision to join Oscar Pet Foods.

Nigel and Bernie Woodhall from Cheshire had always intended to work together in their own business. But what type of business and when to make the change was a continued dilemma - until OSCAR came along.

"Due to the frustration of working in the modern day motor industry and the general 9 to 5 office routine of managing a call centre we had both reached the point of being totally fed up.

Oscar Pet Foods - Nigel and Bernie WoodhallOSCAR gave us both, as pet lovers, an exciting opportunity on how to mix business with pleasure." Berni says.

"Thanks to our Jack Russell, Mollie, we had connections with OSCAR since 2008 as she had grown up enjoying a pet food that is second to none, and through Lesley, our local Nutritional Advisor, we had the benefit of a pet care service that was very personal and supportive.

It was Lesley who initiated the introduction to a business opportunity that gave us total control and the freedom of choice, but to also fulfil our passion for pets."

As Berni said, "We are active people, we love the great outdoors and the principle of the business, combined with Nigel's qualification as a dog trainer and Kennel Club examiner was ideal.

We had no desire to consider any other business opportunities and everything with OSCAR fell into place. Overwhelmed by the professionalism of the OSCAR team they were thorough in guiding us through the process – step by step and no hard pressure.

The comprehensive training covered every aspect from start-up through to daily routines, giving us even more faith in their extensive range of quality products and services.

As a start up business with OSCAR, we have had the added benefit of tele-sales. This has given us a great boost by providing quality appointments and that initial foot through the door to introduce the complete pet care service with ease.

We are 100% focused and prepared to put ourselves on the line to make this business work for us and where the benefit of our dog training facility is an ideal platform to increase customer numbers. Training and change of diet has already resolved a barking issue for one very happy customer with two Jack Russell's.

We are thoroughly enjoying our new business, pet people are nice to deal with, they are approachable and appreciative and all with beautiful pets. We are learning something new every day and OSCAR has taught us that work doesn't need to be a chore when we can we provide a service that makes people and pets happy – a win, win for everyone."
