Home Dog Boarding – Seana Almond

Hello, my name is Seana and I live in Helmshore but have spent most of my life living in Blackburn with my two teenage children James and Lucy, my best friend Jack the Jack Russell and two cats Smarties and Sting. From an early age, animals, particularly dogs have been a big part of my life – Beagles, Labradors, Staffies, Jack Russells – there has always been a four legged friend about.

I was initially introduced to Digs for Dogs when I was looking for a holiday home for my own dog Jack. I really didn’t want to put Jack in a kennel and found Digs for Dogs to be a great alternative. Jack always came home happy and relaxed. I’m sure he had as good a time, if not better than I did on my own holiday!


Social Care to Dog Care

My working career has always been in Adult Social Care, working and helping people who have learning disabilities to supporting older people with mental health problems, physical disability and sensory impairments. For the past 15 years, I have managed services, ensuring that the individual’s needs and wishes were at the heart of support provided. Customer care, quality, safety and positive outcomes were my main focus. I have always enjoyed working with the people who used the services and their carers – trust and reliability are vital – I found that through my own experience as a customer of Digs for Dogs, the same qualities apply. Since first being introduced to the service, I was confident that Jack would be very well cared for on his holidays, and he always went away and returned very happily.

Having been made redundant from work after 31 years in the service, I felt quite lost and Jack has been a great comfort – whenever I felt all at sea, off we’d go for a long walk, and soon the fresh air, exercise and a happy dog friend chased the blues away…


The Newsletter

It was time for a total change of career but I didn’t know to what. Starting a new career after 31 years really didn’t seem appealing. I then received the Digs for Dogs Newsletter…… I had often said that I’d love to work with animals, so when I read the article in the newsletter that there were franchise opportunities, I jumped at the chance without any hesitation – I tried to give the impression that I was considering things, but in truth, I’d made up my mind immediately! I already had total confidence and trust in the brand, so was sold! My belief in the company as a customer along with my love of animals immediately drew me to the idea and I had no hesitation in wanting to invest into the business.

Digs for Dogs offers the perfect blend of people and dogs and I know that I’ll be offering a really great service to loving doggy mums and dads, so that they can confidently go away and enjoy their break. It also means that Jack and I can spend much more time together out and about whilst working – it couldn’t be better.
