I'm working on a travel story for Stuff about the things that have surprised returning Kiwis about New Zealand. If you have recently returned from overseas or know someone who has, it would be great to hear about the things that have stood out for you, for better or for worse. Whether it's to do with the weather, the cost of things, the public transport, the food, the housing, the people or something else entirely, we'd be keen to hear about it. Please remember that your comment may be included in the article, unless you say you don't want it to be. Thank you.
It is a with a very heavy heart I have to inform you that Daisy Doggie Daycare will be closing down on August 13th under a "Voluntary Liquidation of the business".
For the past few full months, after lock down, we have only managed from 4 to the odd 15+ dogs in a day. This is not sustainable when one has to pay rent and wages.
Declining dog numbers week after week leave me no choice but to shut Daisy Doggie Daycare down.
Covid 19 has changed the way people work and many have been impacted financially. All of these have effected our business model.
To all of you, thank you for the chance to love and care for your dog. I have enjoyed them and shall miss them like my own children.
Thank you to all of you as you have shared your doggie with me. I so appreciate each and every one.
Please come and enjoy the days we still have.
Thank you and may you all stay safe.
My door is always open for a chat if you need.
Daisy Doggie Daycare.
