Andover doggy daycare and boarding business secures council grant

Tippy Tap Dog Care and Boarding in Andover, Hampshire, has received a £750 Business Incentive Grant from Test Valley Borough Council.

The grants are for new businesses in the local area, firms must apply before they launch, and the funds will be received once the company has been up and running for six months.

Tippy Tap Dog Care and Boarding Owner Tricia Palmer set up the business having worked in retail for 18 years.

She is currently fully booked and is receiving plenty of bookings from referrals and from other doggy daycare and boarding businesses.

Palmer said: “I can’t believe how busy I am – I’ve already had to turn people away. I’ve recently taken on some puppies, so it’s going to be hard work for the next few months, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

Jennie Pell, Principal Economic Development Officer at Test Valley Borough Council, added: “It’s great for the council to forge links with businesses at an early stage when we can also signpost to useful resources such as our free small business service.”
