~HISTORY OF BOW WOW BED & BREAKFAST~
(words from Christy)
The business started out as
a small boarding home-based business just 100 feet behind my house. The original building was only 468 square feet and contained
10 indoor/outdoor boarding runs. I ran the business by myself until my twin pregnancy came. In March 2002, I hired my first
employee to help with the business. That person was also a professional groomer and thus began the grooming department! Steady
and sure the business kept growing and customers increased mostly by word of mouth from friends and local vets. Very little
outside advertising was needed. We were excited to serve the community and it seemed the community was excited to find us!
Soon after 2 years from the time grooming was added to the business, we decided to add onto the existing building. In the
summer of 2004, Bow Wow Bed & Breakfast had 3 employees and all were helping with the boarding and grooming depatments.
That summer we added on 864 square feet to the building. This gave us a new comfortable grooming area, a new office area and
added 15 new kennel runs to the boarding area.
