WhizzDog-Round

whizzDog is inspired by my miniature Cockerpoo, Poppy, who grins and bears being left home alone once in a blue moon, but actually just wants to be with me all the time. And that’s what I want too, because the truth be told, I hate it when I have to leave her at home alone as she’s my right hand pup. Upon talking to fellow dog owners out on our daily walks, I realised Poppy and I weren’t alone…

With nine in 10 dog owners now considering their pooch a fully fledged part of the family (Samsung 2015 survey), I guess it’s no surprise that a significant number of us dog lovers feel this way. So I decided to start phoning around local businesses to find out if they were dog-friendly, and the reaction was pleasantly surprising.

Not only did numerous businesses confirm they were happy to welcome dogs, but they also loved the idea of whizzDog being animal lovers and/or dog owners themselves.  And then I thought, why stop at Jersey?  I found myself contacting businesses in Guernsey, Herm, Alderney and Sark – and I’m so excited to tell you that parts of the UK and France will be coming soon.  Who knows where we’ll go after that?!

Before Poppy and whizzDog, I enjoyed life, love and friends in London and worked as a Marketing Manager in the property, charity and media industries. My Jersey Bean husband and I then figured we’d give life a go on the rock known as ‘Jersey’ in 2014 – and that’s when Poppy (and new brilliant friends) entered our lives!  I continued working in marketing until Poppy inspired me to get my City & Guilds Distinction in dog grooming and now here I am building whizzDog…
