Hi all, I just want to Air an idea and see if anyone would be interested? I have two bitch Cockapoo's aged 19mths and 10mths, I would love another but my hubby has put his foot down! I'm a full time housewife so am pretty much at home with my lovely doggies. I have two children aged 7yrs and 11yrs, we have a rabbit, chickens and an aviary of budgies. We have a large garden plus my dogs have their own garden for toileting. Ok so here's my idea: I'm thinking of offering day boarding and boarding whilst you go on holiday, I'm a Cockapoo addict so this would only be open to Cockapoo's. The obvious things would apply like an up to date vaccination certificate would need to be seen, plus up to date worming and flea treatments etc. And current pet insurance. There's plenty more I can tell you, but will wait first to see if anyone is interested. Ok so it's over to you lovely owners. Regards Sue

I had one of my trainers set up a wee business originally doing dog walking and boarding. She eventually gave up the walking as although there was a call for it people were not willing to pay enought to make a decent profit. She did do the boarding for a while.

I think that she had to be inspected by the council and have a separate room that was the boarders. She did keep her own dog separate from it. Problems could happen if your own dogs got into a fight with the boarder and there were injuries.

It was a good wee business for her and she had plenty of bookings but you will need to see what the regulations are in your area for it. There is also a company that do it nationally if you wanted to do it with help. I think they are called Pet Sitters if you do a search on them.

I would definitely use you to look after Beau if you were nearer as we would only have her board with someone as don't think she would be very happy in kennels so I say go for it as you have nothing to lose :)

I went to visit a dog minder today as need to leave Poppy with her on Monday so it was an intro to each other. I love the idea of a minder. I choose a child minder over a nursery and want a dog minder over kennels for the same ho e from home love. She is a friend o my aunts so came recommended.

I think if you can turn your love into a business then you will do really well!!

Good luck.
