We must be doing something right. We keep getting calls from new customers all the time.

The Naperville, Illinois franchise location of Dogs Love Running! had a record first quarter in 2012, including a break-out month in March. Heidi Janss, owner of the Naperville dog walking service, said “January and February are often slower months after all the holiday activity we have for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s. But this year has started off great for us.”

Janss added that “March was our best month ever. We make hundreds of visits a month to our customers’ homes and, in March, we far exceeded our best month ever by more than 100 visits.”

Dogs Love Running! provides dog walking/running, pet sitting, private boarding/daycare, and related pet services in the Naperville, Lisle, Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, and surrounding Illinois towns. With rates starting as low as $14.95 per visit, they travel to customers’ homes and take care of pets there while their owners are away at work or on vacation.

“Mostly what we do are dog walks and runs during the mid-day hours when our customers are away at work. Even with the winter weather, we’re still out and about as long as it’s not dangerous conditions. For us to have a record quarter at the beginning of the year when it’s often slowest means that we’re definitely doing something right. We’re receiving calls from new clients all the time.”

Heidi stated that pet sitting in Naperville was also big for her Dogs Love Running! business in March when people were away on vacation, such as on Spring Break. DLR! is able to work on holidays and weekends, so customers’ needs are covered any day of the week.

“We’re looking forward to a great 2012” said Janss. “My staff and I love what we do and our clients recognize that. I know that’s part of the reason why we’re doing well and getting more business. And, of course, our doggy clients love what we do for them, too!”
