The end of November is very close, just a few more weeks of work and then I can enjoy a much needed break over Christmas, I messed my holidays up this year which basically means I have worked from June until December without a proper week off and I have say, yes I enjoy my job but my god am I feeling tired.
I am feeling really good, really positive on a huge personal level but also about the way the business has shaped up this year, I have say out of 2012, 2013, 2014, I think 2015 is the year I will remember the most for years to come for various reasons for LHH, and despite some rather jealous peoples efforts, I am succeeding, moving forward, feeling very focused, and I cant wait for Little Happy Hounds 2016! All we have ever been about at LHH, is offering the most professional, personalised service we can, with a huge emphasis on ‘dog nature walks’, walking in small groups, off leads, in the countryside exploring and enjoying Peak District.
My plan this weekend is to pick the dates I want off for 2016, set in stone, email my clients and give them as much notice as possible so they can make other arrangements to cover my absence.
A few weeks back we took on a lovely doggie called Matilda and I said then no more dog walking clients for 2015. However I took a new doggie on last week, just casual client, so i walked him Monday to Thursday last week, as his owner was recovering from a operation, anyway now he is joining us for a walk once a fortnight so he can spend some quality time with other doggies, he is a two year old Shih Tzu called Buster, i have been balled over by him on walks, he gets on with every dog he meets, likes to play, is excellent in the car and is just so cute and doggie handsome.
I have had a few more dog walking enquiries last week since Buster came on board and I was able to recommend other dog walkers in our area that are Little Happy Hounds approved, HA! So if your looking for a new dog walker please feel free to get in touch with me and i will be more than happy to recommend someone, there are some great dog walkers in our area. And while I am saying no more dogs for 2015, my situation might change next year, I already have a temporary dog leaving for a while in 2016, he is hopefully coming back. The problem is I am not interested in maximising my profits, material gain, I am not money orientated at all, so I have non interest in employees, I think it would be to much stress trying to trust someone, the paper work etc, so I am even more determined that ever to keep Little Happy Hounds a small and personalised business, and all the work is done by just myself and the occasional help from my dog Scrappy.
I still have plenty room for new cat sitting clients, particularly in Whaley Bridge where I live, I have regular cat clients I have looked after for years since I started my business up in 2012. Little Happy Cats has many returning clients, I offer a personalised, experienced service. Littler trays maintained, cat feeding, brushing, playing, shy cats, old cats, friendly cats, within cat sitting I also have a lot of experience with pet sitting other types of pets, so rabbits, guinea pigs, degu, hamsters, chickens, ducks, Little Happy Cats offers a stress free alternative from the cattery by caring for your pets in their home.
