Why I created my own barkbox.
Let me introduce myself. My name is Lee and about 4 years ago now I got my baby staffy dog. Back then I was working from home and that was the main reason I allowed myself to get a dog.
You see I don't believe in leaving dogs in the house all day when you have to go to work. I know some people do this and have no choice but I know a lot of people will agree with me on this.
Dog's don't like to be left for long periods of time but because I worked from home I decided to allow myself a dog. At that time I never imagined that I would start my own barkbox because of my dog.
So what happened? Why did I start my own barkbox?
We not long ago I lost that work from home job and I've been forced to look for work. The only work I could find was off shore work but this would be a big problem for me because I have Lula.
If I had to work away from home I would have to give away my Lula who is my baby and I just could not do that. I could not be parted from her because we have been inseparable for the last 4 years.
So after having a long hard think about what I was going to do I understood that I needed to continue to somehow work from home. So I started thinking about what business I could setup. It didn't come to me straight away but after another long think I decided to start a business I was passionate about and that was dogs.
I decided what better business to start than I business which I could share my story about how I got caught up in this situation and why we started our Dog Treat Box which was inspired by the barkbox.
We looked at the barkbox and decided that we wanted to match up to that standard and we believe we have. We had some major road blocks to overcome when setting this business up and it has been a challenge but a challenge that we have enjoyed and overcome.
Some of the things we have had to overcome are below...
1. Getting a pet wholesaler account
2. Getting our box designed
3. Building the website.
And that's just to name a few. We built a Facebook Fan Page and we shared our story on it and the support we got was amazing. We even got one kind lady to help us with proof reading all our emails and text for our website and we got another kind lady to help us with a company logo for our website and box design.
We are so grateful for the support and it goes without saying we will give them some Dog Treat Boxes on the house.
Right now at the time of writing this article we are just about to go live. Maybe when you read this we will be live. More than likely we will be. But we still need your support.
So I have a question for you. Do you have a dog?
