The Dog Walker Demonstrates Its Pedigree
Richie Womersley, managing director of The Dog Walker, has been shortlisted in the Young Entrepreneur category of the Ackrill Media Group Business Awards.
The prestigious awards highlight the best in business throughout the Harrogate, Ripon, Knaresborough, Wetherby and Nidderdale areas.
Shortlisted in the Young Entrepreneur title are the high-fliers of the future who demonstrated their entrepreneurship and potential to succeed as part of the robust application process.
Richie founded the business in 2006 because he believed animals deserve better care than they receive in kennels. This passion continues to drive the business forward.
Richie has grown the business to be Yorkshire’s largest pet care and well-being specialist employing nine people with five franchises. The company provides fully insured and registered care for customers’ pets in the stress free environment of their own home.
Richie Womersley said: “I am thrilled to be recognised for my entrepreneurial skills and shortlisted for the second year running. I have big plans for the business in 2013 – we’re aiming for 4 additional franchisees in the next financial year – and being shortlisted is the icing on the cake.”
Winners will be announced at the award ceremony on 25 April at Harrogate International Centre.
