As a small business we cannot operate on a free service basis, in the same way cafe's don't give out free coffees, or hotels free accommodation. No funding or grants are provided to run the website, and as with any business need a source of revenue to exist. The website is a great resource for dog owners. They access the website looking for your dog related services, ultimately providing the listed businesses with sales leads and business. When your business is shared to social media it is greatly appreciated if you also share to be courteous and to help raise awareness of each other's business. The website, updating and hosting cost money to operate. Featured businesses benefit from the marketing and promotion provided by the Dog Friendly Guru on the website and social media.
If you know of a business that is dog friendly do get in touch, or let them know they can add their listing to the website. The more businesses the better.
