New OSCAR Franchisee in the Spotlight: Lucy Morgan

Lucy Morgan

Name: Lucy Morgan

Which area does your OSCAR business cover?

The Meon Valley, which includes lots of villages in and around the South Downs, up to Petersfield, down to Waterlooville, and around to Hedge End and West End. I am based near a medieval village called Bishops Waltham, Hampshire.

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

I was previously a private carer for a wonderful elderly lady with Parkinson's, who unfortunately passed away a few months before I heard about the Oscar Franchise opportunity. I was looking for a new project to take on and something I could run from home. Working for myself always appealed, and the older I got, the more I felt I could do it. My husband seems to think I am quite bossy, (strong willed?) so probably good to have my destiny in my hands.

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

Simple – I was an Oscar customer already, and once I had heard about the franchise opportunity I was hooked! I knew that I could say with confidence that the food was good and the rest fell into place.

What was your career before OSCARS?

Very varied, from Horse Riding Instructor, to Sailing Holiday Hostess, to Veterinary Receptionist/Nurse, Yachting Industry Public Relations to Private Carer most recently. Love of animals always topmost in mind.

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

The 2 weeks training at Oscar Head Office was a big eye opener and a lot to take in, but becoming part of the team and meeting all the wonderful support staff was a great experience.

What pet's do you have?

Alfie – 11 years, Weimeraner x Springer Spaniel. Freddie – 6 years, Parson Jack Russell x Poodle – Jack-a-poo? and Bob – my Highland cross pony, a real character.

Lucy, Freddie and Alfie

Which OSCAR food do you feed your pet?

Alfie, my old man, has Pinnacle + now. Freddie has tried a few but his firm favourite is Gluten Free Lamb and Rice. Any Oscar Treats also go down a storm too, they are very good!

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

Alfie still likes to mouth and squeak a good quality rubber or fluffy animal toy and, when playful, throws them round the garden like a puppy.

Freddie is more destructive being a terrier and loves to chew our socks (mainly ripping them to shreds) or any toys that come his way. They both love and still have a nylon big bone.

Tell us a funny tale about your pet

My dogs make me smile every day, happy to meet you every time you come in the room with waggy tails and smiles on their faces I am sure. Freddie talks a lot, and when you stroke him he really does grunt with pleasure, and grunts every time he lies down, usually after racking his bed up as he goes round and round making a perfect bed. Then gets up to sleep on me anyway – must be the poodle in him as he can lie for hours like a baby in your arms. However, with fox or deer smells on a walk, his hearing goes and he generally comes back in his own time – training is not his best feature.

Alfie, on the other hand, is the ideal dog to walk with, never really letting you out of sight and would protect me and my son. My son is 12, so they grew up together. Sometimes Alfie sucking my son’s dummy he had found, sitting next to Jack also sucking away on a dummy in those early years. He also loves a trampoline and even now can leap up whenever we get on and likes to bounce, a bit more gently.

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

Probably a cat - I love the sun, so to be able to lie in the garden all day in the summer would be bliss!
