The humble launch was in the late 1990's with just a lead and worn joggers, quickly became a loved dog's retreat from home.


Having a passion for a pet but never able to afford one of her own, she started walking family friends dogs and became loved by the animals. Her first ambition to start the small business was when her first dog she walked would wait for her at the bus stop she got off from school, "Misha" the Siberian Husky.
