STARTED BY JASPER
HOW eWoof STARTED
Just like many little girls, the Daughter wanted a pup! And, after much digging in of heels, we set out to find the perfect pooch. Jasper, our German Shorthaired Pointer joined our family in 2012. We fell in love with him immediately and unknown to him, he ‘single-pawdedly’ changed our lives and lifestyle forever.
With a new pup at home, we decided that Rob would become a stay-at-home dad, to be there for our boy and of course our Daughter who was at primary school at the time. Sam, left her day job and joined the business full time in 2018, and together we were able to grow the business – caring for more daycare dogs and offering more walks.
Caring for our own dog, finding the best way to feed and care for him, and give him a full and happy life lead us to create eWoof. We decided to start caring for other people’s beloved pups so that we could be there for our own. While the business started off with a few select dogs each day, it has since grown to include ‘a few more dogs’ while still offering a luxury home from home service.
Our guests have full access to all the mod cons of our home – heated floors, filtered water, sofas, a large garden and of course plenty of belly rubs on tap. As passionate raw feeders, we also have extra facilities for raw-fed guests and love to help Owners find out more about this type of diet. In fact, if you’re interested you can find out more about raw-feeding here.
Your eWoof Team
ROBERT ~ Founder & Chief Dog Walker
Rob started eWoof in 2014 and is now predominantly responsible for our dog walking service. Come rain or shine, Rob enjoys nothing more than taking the dogs out for a good long walk, in lovely enclosed fields.
When he’s not out with the pups, he still prefers the outdoor life, and is a huge cycling fanatic. Try not to ask Rob for a walk on a Sunday morning – he’ll be out at the crack of dawn, dressed in tight lycra, on a bike somewhere in the Chilterns!
(PS how many dogs do you see in this photo!)
SAM ~ Better Half & Chief Day Carer
Sam has been working alongside Rob since the inception of eWoof in 2014 but gave up the ‘rat race’ to join the family business full time and focus on the daycare & boarding side of the business.
Sam was key to ensuring the business met all of the requirements of the new 2018 Animal Welfare Regulations, assisting the business to pass inspection with flying colours and achieving the highest 5 star rating and a 3 year license.
As a web developer, Sam also created this website with the aim of providing as much information to new customers who may not know much about selecting a home boarding, daycare or dog walking service. When Sam isn’t cuddling pups, she plays netball and builds websites for other small businesses. Well there is always the evening to fill!
EDEN ~ Dog Whisperer
Eden’s interest in dogs and her desire to have her very own eventually lead to our family business starting. The original dog whisperer, ALL the dogs love her and she is an absolute natural with them, knowing how to handle and take care of them to lend a helping hand.
As a home from home service Eden is automatically a part of the team and does a great job on the evening shift when our guest-pups just want to cuddle up and watch Corrie.
