Michael and Buster

New OSCAR Franchisee in the Spotlight

Oscar Franchisee: Michael Townsend

Which area does your OSCAR business cover?

Blackpool and Fleetwood.

What was your career before OSCAR?

A plumbing and heating engineer for 6 years. I worked in Contracts Engineer Mechanical Services for 4 years. I was a Sales Rep for Hotel Computer Management Systems for 2 years and for the last 20 years I have been a Local Authority Child Care Worker.

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

Loved my job for 10 years, tolerated it for 5 years, hated it for 5 years. Considered a number of self employed options; Oscar can provide me with the opportunity I want, with support.

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

We used the free helpline for dietary and behavioural advice and were impressed with product, company and support. I wanted to be a part of it and did not consider any other companies.

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

Going out meeting the customers and their pets for the first time (all part of the training) as we were putting into practice every element of the modules covered.

What pets do you have?

Buster, a Cockapoo, 16 months.

Which OSCAR food do you feed your pet?

Adult Complete Universal Chicken and Rice.

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

Chasing Seagulls – the only way to tire him out!

Tell us a funny tale about your pet

Buster was house trained within 1 month, then started squatting for a poo in the house at 3 months. It took us a while to associate we were saying 'Good Boy' when he did it in the garden, so had started in the house when we were saying the same words!

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

Any pet that belongs to my wife: totally ruined!
