Business After Covid

Little Happy Hounds Chinley & BeKind2yourself-with Aaron the body shop at home

so because of covid, I have decided I no longer want anymore dog walking clients, I have a few reasons for this, a dog I loved walking left moved out the area, the new dog walkers in our area are cutting corners etc and its making working life demoralising being a witness to it, especially when your working so hard to fit in everyone with the extra traffic! so all in in all I want to be part time!

So as I was bored finishing work at 2 pm so I decided to start up a the body shop business I was persuaded by my dog walking friend in Cornwall who does the same thing its not really anything to do with money I don’t really make a lot it was more that I love their ethos and products, and all the incentives that came with it !!

So I began working as a body shop at home consultant, with my new business BeKind2yourself-with Aaron, its free delivery, Whaley Bridge, Chapel-en-le-Frith, Chinley, New Mills, Buxton, other High Peak areas.

so its doing okay I am switched off at the moment as I have had extra pet care on, both my new puppies Artie and Pip have joined group walks, so managing two puppies and three other dogs is a little bit tricky at present and I have a few cat sitting gigs booked in, my new puppy clients below !

On top of work being a bit busier than usual my own dog is old, so its taking a lot more time to look after him so for me less little happy hounds is a logical way forward, I am in such a lucky place financially, why work myself into the ground, I’m 41 we own our own house outright, happily married, so I think working a bit less when most of society is off is important really !

So I am based in Chinley, little happy hounds is almost 9 years old fully insured, I have a DBS check certificate, I am also a key holder for my clients homes, I offer dog walking, puppy care and cat sitting, at present we aren’t taking new clients.

So I have took half term week off my dog walker duties, to rest up recharge my batteries, its Monday and so far I have had a great weekend and a lovely day today, just cleaning, cooking, the weather has been shockingly cold so I never went out the house Saturday and Sunday my partner walked our dog, today I managed a small local walk with Scrappy ! Today has been milder and sunnier a lot like spring !

So yes I needed a huge break from work, everything due to pandemic is making life harder. So today was great , I remembered one of the main reasons we moved to Chinley and that is the walks. my dog is getting on, so today we walked up our street, Stubbins Lane to Chinley nature reserve, we exited at the very top of Stubbins Lane which then becomes Cotes Banks lane…

So I have took half term week off my dog walker duties, to rest up recharge my batteries, its Monday and so far I have had a great weekend and a lovely day today, just cleaning, cooking, the weather has been shockingly cold so I never went out the house Saturday and Sunday my partner walked our dog, today I managed a small local walk with Scrappy !

So yes I needed a huge break from work, everything due to pandemic is making life harder. So today was great , I remembered one of the main reasons we moved to Chinley and that is the walks. my dog is getting on, so today we walked up our street, Stubbins Lane to Chinley nature reserve, we exited at the very top of Stubbins Lane which then becomes Cotes Banks lane and eventually your kind of above Brierly Green Buxworth lots of options but we often turn left its not sign posted foot path and its lovely green lane lovely views of Eccles Pike, this goes through a horse field and we crossed over the railway via a foot bridge and back onto the main B road, at leaden knowl and eventually we walked back to the nature reserve and down the lane home !!!

That was just his morning walk, now he is getting on we have the park at the top of the street sometimes late in the evening we use Squirrel green in the village as he wont toilet properly in our garden !!! So we love loving Chinley its two years this coming June, I have been covering Chinley for work since 2013, so I have always loved it around, my other favourite walks is South Head via alders lane, we love walking up Maystone road and exploring the paths up to crackern edge.

unbranded van for your security and discretion

at Little happy hounds I don’t drive a branded van or wear uniform this is because I am sometimes cat feeding when people are on holiday so in that instance its security and discretion wise if I am picking dogs up I dont want everyone knowing I have van full of dogs I mean its not a great time in society lots of dog thefts going on, I think discretion is the key when your a dog walker.

Its been a a difficult few weeks, weather is relentless, just snowy and icy and very cold which is better than the mud but its knackering, I could not get up several clients streets and drives this morning so a lot of on foot collections was exhausting did two one hour walks and puppy visit took me from 9 am to 3 pm !!! Its probably my age but I am a tired boy happy but tired.

So yes a new puppy has arrived at LHH a cavapoo its a unusual situation as I am doing the puppy visit and her owner is in, I am in the garden and in the summer house and the puppies owner is in the house this is so the puppy gets a bit of independence away from her owner and I get to bond with her before she is ready to go on my walks. She is lovely she is not three months old yet, I know the cavapoo mix breed so I am overly excited about her joining us.

new client poppy !

then my other new dog is also a absolute treasure, we are two weeks into new doggy poppy walks. She is a miniature poodle, she just turned a year old, I do love love my smaller breed dogs she is everything feisty, strong willed, very fast when she is playing, cuddly and just a huge personality just a lovely doggy !

So business is doing very well lately in the face of the pandemic, I have said no to some enquiries at the back end of last year and this year, I know this has upset one of those enquiries I said no too. As a small business the way I run LHH is when I get a new dog enquiry I ask some questions, and then I think is this potential clients dog a good match for my other dogs, I dont think oh a new dog more money its not how we do things.

If its not suitable enquiry for myself I recommend someone else, nothing to get upset about all very above board, I have been called picky lately and almost 9 years into running a very successful business just want to say I am very picky, in equal measures I am picky, ethical, caring, reliable and very experienced and I am also the boss. You will also find me very friendly very down to earth, I am Geordie after all living in the Peaks.

As a local business I can only cover the surrounding areas of Chinley, where I am based, so I cover Buxworth, Chapel-en-le-Frith, Chinley and Whaley Bridge only. I dont cover dove holes I leave that up to the buxton dog walkers and we stopped covering New Mills back in 2018 it was taking to long in the car with travel to cover all the areas, its about scaling back and centralising, less time driving equals longer walks for my happy hounds !

below one of todays walks and the new puppy in my life.

A new year !!! 2021

So last week was our first week, we had snow, a new dog client joined us and the UK went into our third lockdown, welcome to 2021. Remember to like this post share this post subscribe to this blog, please.

So last week first few days was a shock to the system, I was busy with the dogs and most of society was out and about, driving, and on walks, in depths of winter I am use to walking with the dogs and seeing nobody, people stopping me to comment on the dogs make small talk is exhausting, I mean I work with dogs for a reason.

Monday night we went into a third lockdown and finally Wednesday onwards it started to get a little bit more quiet. At the weekend it was all over Facebook the police and the mountain rescue people where not happy with the volume of people coming into the area to go walking. Of course some people acted very irresponsibility, Mancunians mostly coming in the Derbyshire Hayfield and going up Kinder scout, I have seen with my own eyes on Instagram with the hash tag Kinder Scout , people have been going up there in groups of five and six’s arms around each other posing for photos, it is absolutely disgusting, we are allowed to meet one person outdoors, near our house and observing a 2 meters distance from one another, the NHS is on its knees currently hence my preaching. Stay at home the local people of our towns and villages in this area don’t want you to visit its not safe, fair or considerate.

So yes last week was not feeling very safe being out and about, contagious disease, people lurking around every corner spreading the disease when they all should be in their houses, fact. I decided after last week I will keep working, as I have key workers an a elderly lady on my books who rely on me to deliver dog walks, and if I am walking that lot I might as well keep walking everyone else, anyway vaccination is being rolled out so things will eventually start looking up.

So my first week back was great mostly as we got a break from the mud and three days of ice and snow on the ground so dogs where immaculate but also they love the snow so we we had some really lovely walks, Friday new dog parsons jackrussell Lara joined us. Its been on the cards for a while but I didn’t want to do the meet and greet bit even in the garden with the pandemic, but I ran into the owners on my walk on Thursday so decided that was the meet and greet and took her out Friday as planned she is lovely typical puppy typical terrier, she is just a once a week Friday dog !!

Photos are from just some of last weeks walks a few photos of newbie Lara, please like, share and subscribe to my blog , find us on Facebook to follow our adventures on full,

as a dog walker I cover Chinley ‘where I live’ Whaley Bridge Chapel-en-le-Frith, Buxworth High Peak Derbyshire, pet sitting, puppy visits and dog walking.
