New OSCAR Franchise in the Spotlight: Donna Harris

Donna Harris

New OSCAR Franchisee in the Spotlight

Oscar Franchisee:Donna Harris

Which area does your OSCAR business cover?

The whole of Mid-Cornwall – covering Padstow/Wadebridge to Newquay. All the way down to Truro, across to St Austell and Fowey, up to Bodmin and everywhere in between!

What was your career before OSCAR?

I had a successful career in design (Design Director for 16 years), including running five creative business activities. This included people management, finance, budgeting and visual communication solutions.

What made you decide on a career change to run your own OSCAR Business?

I wanted a change from the nine to five. As I have experience in operating profit and loss accounts, I therefore wanted to run my own business. I also had a Siamese cat with CKD and became interested in animal nutrition and the two married up perfectly.

What was it that made you choose an OSCAR franchise business?

The level of support, professional approach, BFA and also that it is an established British company. It is like becoming part of the family!

What has been your favourite part of your OSCAR training so far?

Undoubtedly, learning about the nutritional benefits of the differing foods. Now out on the job, I feel very lucky to meet so many wonderful pets and their owners.

What pets do you have?

Florence, Siamese Cat, 6 years.
Tilda-Mae, Beagle, 2 years.

Lola & Florence

I also had the absolute pleasure of owning Lola, the adorable Siamese who sadly passed away just after her fifth birthday, and who sparked my interest in pet nutrition.

Which OSCAR food do you feed your pet?

Florence is fed on OSCAR Adult Complete – Turkey Lite

Tilda-Mae is fed on OSCAR Adult Complete – Lamb and Rice. She is also my chief taste tester for a variety of OSCAR treats!

What is your pet's favourite game to play and why?

Florence – High Fives for treats
Tilda-Mae – Find It! Sniffs out treats, great for a scent hound! And football... she loves football!

Tell us a funny tale about your pet

Every day is a fun day with a Beagle and Siamese! Tilda is a K9 metal detector and can dig up all sorts of things! Little Flo gets confused when washing her ears - licking one paw then using the other one to clean her ear!

If you could be any pet what would you be and why?

I would be a blue point Siamese cat! Always spoilt rotten! If I was a canine, again I would have to go Beagle, living with a family, as Beagles love children, are very sweet natured. but also quite cheeky!!
