Free muscle assessment for your dog 16th February 2018

Did you know your dog has around 700 muscles and over 320 bones?!!

Muscles pull on the bones to create movement so when these muscles become sore or injured, your dog's ability to run, jump, play and relax is compromised.

Clinical Canine Massage specialises in the manipulation of your dog's muscles, helping to increase their suppleness and flexibility to enable your dog to have better mobility, ability and quality of life.

So whether your dog is showing signs of ageing, has been injured, is an active, agility or working dog or perhaps a Crufts competitor looking to enhance their movement before the big day. W

Why not come along and get a FREE Muscular Health Check at The Doghouse, WR3 8TJ on Thursday 15th February.

Dog Business grows 1st February 2018

This article appeared in the Worcester News in January 2018

A DOG care business has expanded after receiving a grant from Worcester City Council.

Dawn Inett set up The Dog House in 2006 and recently received a £2,281 business growth grant from the city council, which she match-funded from the company’s own reserves.

Dawn has spent over 35 years living and working with dogs and successfully turned her passion into a business, offering grooming, day care and a shop selling dog food and gifts, as well as canine massage and a launderette.

In autumn The Dog House moved from Fernhill Heath to larger premises at 86H Blackpole West Trading Estate, Blackpole, Worcester.

 The city council grant paid for grooming equipment and dryers, allowing more than one dog to be treated at the same time. The business now employs one full-time and five part-time employees. 

Dawn said: “The kind of services clients are looking for has changed greatly over the last decade. Customers are more discerning about the level of care their dogs receive and want a knowledgeable, trustworthy business to look after their canine family members.”

 She has just opened a new Dog Day Care Centre, offering a 700 square foot space where owners can leave their dog in individual ‘lounges’. Owners can buy spa treatments for their dogs too.  It also boasts a new room for dog training sessions and a laundrette adapted to wash bedding.

The city council awarded £24,500 worth of grants to businesses in 2017. 

 Cllr Lucy Hodgson, chair of the place and economic development sub committee at the council, said: “Small businesses are the lifeblood of Worcester’s economy, and the city council is proud to support them through its grants programme. If you’re considering setting up your own business in 2018 or are looking to expand an existing business, then please do get in touch with us to find out what support we could offer.”
