Welcome to the PetsA2B website. The following details some information about who we are and how PetsA2B was started.
Gary and Iain first met back at the end of 2017. Gary was running Northampton Dog Walker and Iain was thinking of starting a dog walking business in Bedford. Gary built a website for Iain and they stayed in touch.
In March 2020 the UK entered lockdown due to Covid19. Both Gary and Iain naturally noticed the demand for dog walking and pet sitting dropped alarmingly. It was at this time that the idea of focusing on pet transport started.
Noticing a healthy demand for pet transport, Gary obtained his Type 1 Animal Transport Licence from DEFRA and began to optimise his Northampton Dog Walker website for pet transport search terms.
Things went very well and in just two months requests were coming in from members of the public, dog charities and dog breeders. In July 2020 Gary and Iain both decided to focus more on pet transport and we agreed we should start a new business name clearly aimed at pet transport. Gary purchased the PetsA2B domain name and Iain applied for his Type 1 Animal Transport Licence.
What about the future? Both Gary and Iain intend to apply for their type 2 Animal Transport Licence in the coming months. This will allow us to quote for longer distance & international work which we currently have to decline.
We will update this page as and when our story develops. Thanks for reading!
