Dawn Pearce had some tough choices to make after being redundant from her job in a bank. Instead of looking around for another office job she found inspiration in her two dogs.
“I looked at my two dogs looking up at me and thought ‘yep, that’s what I’m going to do’. I love them and I’m going to share that with other people and their pets.
“My passion is pets. I thought ‘go for it’. I had nothing to lose and everything to gain. My friends and family say it’s a great business for me as they know me and what I’m like.”
Soon after she set up Dawn Dolittle Pet & Equine Services Ltd and now offers pet sitting and walking services.
One of her more unusual bookings is to look after 25 pygmy goats. She walks dogs and cares for pets like cats and guinea pigs and even horses.
Good luck to Cwmbran’s newest business owner!
