Every month we aim to put the spotlight on a business within the community, whether a shop or a market trader. For our second entry in the series we popped down to say hello to fantastic local market traders and pet specialists Boneapettreat. Boneapettreat have been a welcome addition to both the regular Pudsey Market and the monthly Produce & Craft Market offering unique treats for our furry friends.
We caught up with Louise to see how the people of Pudsey have reacted to their fantastic business and of course what they enjoy about the Pudsey community.
My name is Louise, I have lived in Pudsey all my life. I have my own dog walking business which I have run successfully for the last 4 years in Pudsey and the surrounding areas. Whilst out walking the dogs (which gives me a lot of time to think) I decided to try and start up a side business selling dog treats and dog related gifts, handmade cards, shampoos and ‘PAWfumes’.
At first I started by joining the Pudsey Produce and Craft Market, which I love. The Produce and Craft Market has been really good for me and has allowed me to develop a good customer base, I am now growing the business and have taken a stall selling dog treats Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays on Pudsey Market. I have my own Facebook page and groups which I post on weekly, selling treats online and offering free local deliveries. I also sell my treats at Jaspers Coffee Shop in Farsley which is going really well and have recently joined the new Foodistry initiative.
So in a short space of time I have gained myself some lovely regular customers, humans and dogs! My utlimate goal is to grow the business and to get my name out there. I look forward to welcoming new customers along with my lovely regulars who I really appreciate and thank for supporting my little local business.
Bone-A-Pet–Treat, selling 100% natural treats, healthy, grain and gluten free treats and just something different for the dog in your life.
A friendly, local business that’s new and upcoming, with a variety of treats for all kinds of dogs.
Our most popular products are the 100% natural range as these are really good and healthy for dogs. Our other popular products are treats that take some chewing down on, these keep the dog occupied and let the owners have a little bit of peace! Then our Grain free and Gluten free range are also popular as a lot of dogs have to have a wheat free diet.
I enjoy the fact that I don’t have to venture for miles to promote my business, the good people of Pudsey have been amazing so far supporting me and its made me realise that you can grow a business right on your doorstep so THANK YOU to the people of Pudsey.
