I started in August 2013 and I haven't looked back. Every hurdle I came across, Master franchisee Dave Caddy, was always on hand to put things right, nothings too much trouble for him, I know I can call on him at anytime for virtually anything, from advice with the equipment to general business advice, he even came down and helped me out with hands on grooming that I haven't been sure about, actually came to my area to help me, at a moments notice. When they say that you have help every step of the way, they do mean it - they really want you to succeed as much as you do. I have followed everything that I have been trained to do from all the marketing, right through from aquiring to retaining customers, there is so much that you would never think of doing on your own, but I am following it and I am building up a regular database of customers and this is only since August, I already have regular repeat business. I think I could be expanding in 2014, its that mad - to think I used to be a school teacher and also a volunteer in a rescue centre to actually going out, and now getting paid to work with these lovely animals - Its mad!!!

I still can't believe where my business has got to in such a short time. I worked in the hospitality industry for most of my career, but knew I wanted more out of life, so I started looking for an opportunity over the internet and came across Dial A Dog Wash. It has totally changed my life, I had work coming in straight from leaving my training after implementing what dial a dog wash showed me. There was just me to begin with and in my first full year in business, I earned well over 40K, and my second year over 70K. This year I have brought a trailer, the first trailer to come to Ireland and I am now employing and adding to my local economy in Meath. This year my earnings will exceed 100,000 euro. Without the support of fellow franchisees and the dial a dog wash management team, I probably would have not got over some of the obstacles of being in business, especially in the initial stages, I know I have my own business, but I also know that I am not alone in my business. I also know that I will provide a fantastic future for my young family, and that I am so grateful that I found Dial a Dog wash!"

I first saw Dial A Dog Wash in late 2009 and joined early in 2010. I have always loved dogs, so I knew that I was going to work with them, but it was never my intention to work hands on always, I wanted to build the business to manage a team and build my own company in my area . What I love about dial a dog wash is that you can make the business as big or as small as you want it to be, there are no catches, so I have decided to build it big. I have two vans out on the road, with three employees working them, and I have just put in an order for a third van. The support from Dial A Dog Wash is absolutely brilliant and I know that there is always someone on hand to help with anything, from in the early days with any grooming advice, right up to help with expanding, employment etc, I know that I can call any of the team at Dial A Dog Wash at anytime, and I know that I couldn't have done this without them, the advice and support is fantastic, they have always been there for me when I have needed them. My plans for the future are to keep building as the demand requires and I am now personally earning a six figure income. I don't know what else to say!
Before I did Dial A Dog Wash, I was in the building business as a self employed plasterer, and I was finding it hard to get work, either contracted or personal work, it was really hard. Thankfully my Dial a dog wash business became very successful very quickly and I was earning over 1000 euro every week from the 6th week into the business, it was really that quick, I was earning decent money from week 2. I followed all the advice I received from Dave Caddy, and my neighbouring franchisees and I am thankful everyday that I did listen, and that the business took off like it did. I will be expanding this year and I am expanding with the money back system from Dial a Dog wash, that lets me expand my business further without costing me anything. It sounds too good to be true, and it is. Its the best thing that I have done for me and my family. I have no money worries now and I have a very successful business
