Award-winning Doggy Day Care triples turnover!

Updated: Aug 12, 2016

The days of leaving your faithful friend in a cramped kennel are long gone.

Luxurious overnight hotel suites, an on-site grooming spa, training and behavioural lessons, even a swimming pool – any dog left in the care of Suffolk Canine Creche is guaranteed to end the day tired and content.

In 2011, Candy Rose decided to swap her role as a HR director to follow her dream of opening a daycare centre for dogs, and she had no idea how successful it would be. With a growing waiting list of clients after just 18 months, a move to bigger premises was needed.

To meet this demand and find the space she needed Candy borrowed £84,000 from 644 investors. Since then, the creche has gone from strength to strength — Candy says that turnover has tripled. Recently, Suffolk Canine Creche was awarded Pet Service Business of the Year at the National Pet Industry Federation Awards 2015 and the business now employs 22 members of staff.

In this short video, meet Candy and her happy clients!
