There are great benefits to running your own dog walking and pet care business, as Kayleigh Gaskill discovered.
With the help of Scamps and Champs, Kayleigh began the somewhat daunting task of becoming self-employed. While it wasn’t easy, she was grateful for the fact she wasn’t alone. Scamps and Champs were with her every step of the way.
Kayleigh originally worked for Scamps and Champs, and enjoyed it so much that she was only too eager to branch out on her own, when the business decided to offer franchises. Kayeighs’ branch of the franchise, Scamps and Champs Tameside, is now going strong with many clients on board. The original Scamps and Champs, based in Stockport and run by Managing Director Lesley Regan, is always on hand to offer support and advice.
Kayleigh is one of an increasing number of people who can honestly say she loves her job, as more and more people now take the plunge to try working for themselves.
"I spend my days walking dogs and visiting cats whilst owners are at work, and I now have a team of people who are able to home board animals or house sit when owners are away, which are proving to be popular alternatives to kennels. I could never have got this far without Lesley’s support. Without the help of Scamps and Champs i’d never have had the confidence to go it alone."
The Scamps and Champs franchise package offers a ready to go business. If your passionate about working with animals, hard working and willing to succeed then this is certainly the perfect business for you to run!
Key Benefits of a Scamps and Champs franchise include: Full Training, Business Support, a High Income Potential and Flexibility to work hours to suit you.
