Dog Walking Business Names : Only Professional Will Do!
Deciding on your dog walking business name can be tricky, but if you keep one thing in mind, you’ll soon be shouting your pet business name from the rooftops!
Every dog walking business needs a name. But what type of name should you pick for your new pet care business? There are mainly 3 different types of dog walking business names, they are:
- Professional Dog Walking Business Name
- Quirky Dog Walking Name
- Self Named Dog Walking Business
Today we are going to look at why there is only one choice to make really. I know that is a bold statement to make, but as I’ve written before, I will only write about areas and subjects that I know work well within the pet industry, and I’ll certainly write about what doesn’t work and to stay well clear of.
As always, leave a comment at the end of the post either if you agree or disagree!
Choosing Your Professional Dog Walking Business Name
Having a professional dog walking business name gives a professional impression (not to state the obvious!)
Potential clients will see your business name when they’re looking for a dog walker or any other pet care service and will make a judgement about your pet business very quickly.
Let’s be honest, we all do it when we are looking for a business, service or product, It’s just human nature.
Don’t believe me?
OK, quick test.
You are looking to buy a new Smartphone. Which company would you be more likely to buy a product from or visit their website to find out more?
- Big Dave’s Dogs
Slightly biased I Know! but I’m guessing either 1 or 2! Simply because they are both trusted brand names that virtually everybody in the world will have heard of.
Professionalism and Trust
When your clients are going to give you keys to their home and want you to take care of their beloved pet, making a professional and trusted first impression with your business name is essential.
Your business name doesn’t have to be known the world over, but it does have to impress quality and trust upon your potential clients. We all love our dogs. Your clients want to leave their dog and their house keys with somebody who is professional and trustworthy.
And in turn, you will be more likely to be contacted regarding your pet care services over that of somebody who hasn’t put any thought into their business name. Regardless, that it maybe Day 1 of your business and Big Dave’s Dogs has been open for a year!
Of course things like trust, quality of service and professionalism won’t be automatically given to you just because you have a great dog walking business name, but you can certainly start the ball rolling with a great company name.
Advertising and Marketing Your Dog Walking Business
You’re possibly at the very beginning stages of starting up your dog walking and pet sitting business. Which firstly is great because you’re going into one of the most rewarding businesses out there! Secondly, It is never too early to be thinking about the future of your new business.
There’s hard work and testing times involved in setting up a dog walking business but the start up and planning process doesn’t last forever.
There are three definite stages of having a successful pet care business (and any business in general!)
To get your dog walking business running, it will need to be advertised and promoted. Word of Mouth is priceless but, right at the beginning of your new business this is limited to family and friends, which is great but they only have so many pets and they only know so many people with pets!
With everything in place – your dog walking website up and running, equipment ready to go and paperwork in place, you just need clients. As your website climbs up Google’s rankings, the contact from pet owners will increase and your dog walking business name will be at the centre of it all.
Having a professional pet business name is alot easier to market and advertise to your potential clients because it is a brand. A brand that can start to grow from your first dog walk.
Have you found that your dog walking business name has held you back or has it really helped in gaining new pet care clients?
