One thing which has improved my mental health during these hard times is having the company of dogs. Working from home and living on your own can be extremely lonely and it has definitely taken a hit on my mental health.
I have started looking after dogs to help some owners in the local area and i would love the opportunity to provide this more formally and as a cheaper alternative to larger doggy daycare and and kennels. I love to be able to help owners with the care of their dog and love even more being surrounded by such beautiful animals who help me get through every day.
My dream is to start up a small local doggy daycare and boarding service but the cost of a licence and insurance is the similar to that for larger facilities which would hold up to 30 dogs at a time! I would only have a couple of doggies and I am not doing this for profit, I am doing this to help local doggy owners, to improve my mental health and to provider fun and company for dogs.
