Kayleigh Gaskill was among the first to take up a Scamps & Champs business just over a year ago. Kayleigh tells us about the experience.

Thinking of starting your own dog walking business? There’s a lot to think about when setting up on your own, and it can be mind boggling. Taking on a franchise can ease some of that worry.

Kayleigh Gaskill - Scamps & ChampsScamps & Champs offer franchises in their very successful dog walking & pet care business.

Kayleigh Gaskill was among the first to take up a Scamps & Champs franchise just over a year ago. Here’s what Kayleigh has to say to say about the experience.

"I’ve always loved having pets around and love walking dogs so I knew I wanted a job like this. I was employed by Scamps & Champs for 4 years and loved going out, meeting new people, walking their dogs and taking care of their pets for them while they were at work or on holiday.

When Lesley, Scamps & Champs Managing Director, mentioned she was going to start offering franchises, I thought it was the perfect opportunity for me. I got to become my own boss and fit in my hours around my lifestyle. I took on my own franchise area and Scamps & Champs helped me every step of the way.

I had no business knowledge, didn’t have a clue where to start advertising on my own, or how to handle the financial side of things, but Lesley was brilliant. She is only ever a phone call away offering support and guidance when I need her. She helped me reach out to new customers and plan for the future of the business. I was only 23 when I set up on my own, so to have someone behind me with that level of support was invaluable!

My partner used to work in a call centre but has now been able to quit his job to work with me full time. We want to start a family and because we have that flexibility now, it’s going to make it so much easier to bring up kids and still earn a living at the same time!

Having the support of Lesley, and Scamps & Champs, has been amazing. We’ve grown our business from nothing and can really look forward to a brighter, flexible future doing a job we love! It doesn’t even feel like a job!"

What Our Franchisees Say

I really enjoy myself now, every day! What’s not to love about walking dogs and visiting all the lovely pets I now care for and their owners who I now count as friends! I only wish I’d had the opportunity to do this years ago!
