The Poodle to Pitbull Pet Business Podcast

Jul 29, 2022

This weeks guest Doug 'the dog guy' Keeling is a shining light in the pet industry. A self-confessed loner and nerd, Doug moved around a lot as a kid and ended up bonding hugely with his dogs. 

A passion for travelling led to him training to be an airline pilot at college, that was until he tried flying the plane...hen ended up working in a computer repair shop and a grocery store before getting a job and quickly working his way up to co-owning an antique and estate sale company.

He left and got a degree in business management and also a dog, which led to him putting an advert out to start his own dog business. To Doug's eternal surprise this took off FAST and by month eleven the business was full and he was hiring. 

Tune in to find out how Doug made every mistake in the book, but through hard work and a passion for providing premium pet care, managed to build an amazing business that now has staff members covering a huge area of Florida. 

Doug has an infectious enthusiasm for his pet business, and you'll be inspired by his journey from sole trader to bringing in staff and managers so he could successfully scale up without doing all the work.
