DON’T let the credit crunch scupper your plans to run your own business from home. If you have been thinking about going it alone for some time but have not yet taken the plunge, then a new business opportunity that has just launched in the Midlands could be just what you have been waiting for.

Happytailz Limited was founded by Julie Morton from Solihull, and is a bespoke pet care company. It has proved to be such a success that Julie has now decided to offer other pet lovers the chance to set up their own pet care businesses across the UK.
Julie, 45 is a single mum to her two daughters and runs her hugely successful business from her home. As well as offering a dog walking service, she also has facilities for overnight care, doggy day care and will visit cats and other small animals in their homes when their owners are away.

She said: “People have trusted me to take care of their much-loved pets for some time now, and I know there is an increasing demand for this kind of service all over the country so it seemed like the perfect time to offer other pet lovers the chance to enjoy a flexible working from home business opportunity.”

To set yourself up as a Happytailz pet care service business costs just £1995 plus a £35 a month fee which includes a uniform, car signage, and branded stationery, as well as pet sitting insurance for the first 12 months. Each business operator has their own exclusive territory.

Business operators also get plenty of help, support and advice including a comprehensive on line support manual, as well as access to external, professional training courses and other tools that will add value to a new business.

Julie added: “I am an expert when it comes to pet care, and I really need to build a network of Happytailz businesses across the country to meet the demand for this kind of service. Many people who have been staying at home or working part time have had to return to work because of the looming recession. Subsequently we are experiencing a huge increase in the amount of work because people’s pets still need to be walked and cared for while they are at work all day.

“It has taken us a long time to fine tune the business package we are offering and to make sure it is realistic and affordable for anyone who wants to work from home. Running a Happytailz business gives you flexibility, freedom and the chance to spend time with animals. If you love your pets, chances are you will love other people’s as well and you will also understand how important it is for them to be taken care of by professionals.”


Happytailz Limited is owned and was founded by Julie Morton, a specialist in dog care and handling. Julie is an inspirational business woman who has overcome severe difficulties in her life to launch a successful and worthwhile business. She is dedicated to providing a comprehensive and professional pet care service to her clients and has the welfare and wellbeing of the animals at the top of her agenda.
