Start-Up Consultations – First Steps

Start-Up Consultation sessions are for anyone thinking of starting their own dog field. 

Whether you already have a plot of land or you’re just looking into the idea, a 1-2-1 video call (or phone call if you prefer) can really help clarify the basic things you need to know before you make some very expensive and time sapping mistakes.

Who Is A Start-Up Consultation for?

Why We Do 1-2-1 Consultations

Everyone’s circumstances are different – some people have lots of land management experience but little customer service and/or dog experience. Some people are looking to finance their field and want to get into the details of costs. Others are already operating in the dog world as trainers or dog walkers and want to set up a field to expand their business but don’t have any experience in buying and renting land, engaging contractors, or making commercial planning applications.

A 1-2-1 session allows us to get into the details. We help you take your plans forward and help you build an action plan as to the next steps you need to take.

How a Start-Up Consultation Works

Wherever you are on your quest to set up a dog field, an Initial Consultation will save you from making some big (and little) mistakes that will either cost a lot to fix later down the line, or will limit the appeal and therefore revenue you can achieve from your field.

What if I am ready for a site visit?

If you already have a plot of land and you want to get into the planning and design phase, this is a good time to think about a site visit. The smallest things matter and these can both increase the chances of gaining planning permission without challenges, and make your dog field better both for dogs, and maximise your revenue.

The Road Map

A site visit is a small part of the ‘Road Map’ we create for each client. Every potential dog field we visits becomes a project – one we take very seriously. There are four phases:

Phase 1: Before we start!

Red flag assessment – here we review your site to check for major red flags – things that would completely proclude you from achieving planning consent for your field or make it very difficult. We don’t want to encourage anyone to start a project that has a high chance of failure or one that would become a long drawnout headache. We check this before we agree to work with you.

Phase 2: Pre-Visit

Phase 3: Site Visit

Phase 4: Road Map Presentation

Phase 5: Review Consultation
