I've had a very interesting life so far, I never thought I would be running my own business, after college. I graduated college with a degree in music technology. My goal was to further my education and follow my love for music and become a film composer. It wasn't until the end of that chapter in my education did I realized how tired I was of the endless studying preparing for exams. Not to mention the meaningless minimum wage jobs associated with being a teenage college student. I noticed during the summer after I had graduated with my degree that, I needed a break and I had to keep busy with something. 

 

In 2014, I took a gap year from my education. Whilst finding myself through work, there was a lot of dog videos and some cat ones too. I have a cat but he's not very tame, the guy chases foxes for fun!

 

 But I've always wanted a dog, with all my spare time I began watching Crufts. Then it was training videos, all of a sudden I was watching back to back episodes of Victoria Stilwell, and Caesar Millan's the dog whisperer. Every single day, at that point having a dog, became my obsession. 

 

I researched every single dog breed under the sun, I arrived at the idea that it had to be.

small,

healthy 

longer lifespan

cute 

and trainable

I ended up getting a beagle, I compromised on trainability for cuteness. I applied everything I learned into raising my pup. Being a beagle mum, made me brainstorm what I really wanted to do. I hated leaving my Ellie pup alone for most of the day, I knew I wanted to work from home and spend time with her. So naturally, I came to the conclusion of playing with dogs all day.

 

The rest is History. I started working as dog walker almost immdiently, Initial started the business as Trusting tails. But that name never really connected with me. Almost two years later I changed my business name to Pups Go Walking. "Pups" came from the nickname Ellie pup, I would also nickname the dogs "pups", it made sense to me to merge "pups" into the business.

 I still love the wiggle tails and the lovely comments from my clients, after being in this profession for so many years. I am proud of the business I have started, I hope it continues to both challenge me and reward me, I feel I'm doing my dream job.
