The Success

Don't just take our word for it, please read our franchisees' Case Studies below for their own personal experiences with Paw Pals....

Caroline & Ant Newbury, Paw Pals West Oxon

Paw Pals West Oxon

Caroline joined the Paw Pals network having done much research into the pet sitting industry and even had interviews and ‘open days’ with other companies too. She saw that with Paw Pals, she had the chance to pursue a career combining caring for animals with making a success of her own business in the great outdoors; Paw Pals West Oxon was launched in July 2011.

“I found Paw Pals on a franchise website and was so inspired by their friendly nature and genuine passion for animals that I knew it was the one for me. 

"I am a big lover of the great outdoors and after sitting behind a desk for the last 25 years (despite having had some great jobs), think I am ready to fulfil my dream and make my own success as well as doing something I love - not many people can say that!”

After a very successful first year, Caroline and her husband Ant decided that she needed an extra pair of hands, or more importantly feet! After much deliberation and number crunching, Ant gave up his job as a brewer and joined the business full time as a partner. If they needed any confirmation that they had done the right thing, they got it; the couple went on to make an impressive £50,000 turnover in their second year!

"I have to say I don't think I would have been as successful with my branch if I hadn't had the support of Paw Pals. At the beginning it was quite hard getting known, plenty of hours delivering flyers but the website is brilliant and I now get the majority of my work through the website and Google.

You can tailor your business to suit your individual lifestyle. I have been boarding dogs at home for the last couple of years which has been great, but I also enjoy walking dogs and looking after cats when owners are on holiday. It's great because there is always a variety of things to do."
