Oscar Franchisee: Emma and Carl Shepherd
How many years have you been an OSCAR franchisee?
1 year today!
Which area does your OSCAR business cover?
What made you decide on a career change to run your own OSCAR business?
I was working away from home most weekdays and seeing less and less of my family – I thought working from home would give me the work life balance I have been craving.
What was your career before OSCARS?
I (Emma) was a Business Development Manager in the Construction industry. Carl manages a local shop part time.
What has been your favourite moment with OSCARS?
Seeing the results when we have been to see dogs with conditions that can be helped with our food.
What pets do you have?
Archie, 2 years old, Hungarian Vizsla. (pictured above)
Which OSCAR food do you feed your pet?
What is your pet's favourite game to play and why?
He loves to swim, and we are lucky that we live near a reservoir. He loves us to throw his Oscar training dummy into the water for him to fetch.
Tell us a funny tale about your pet.
He always looks surprised when he trumps (probably because it's not very often) and has that ‘it certainly wasn’t me’ look on his face!
If you could be any pet, what would it be and why?
Ooh! That’s hard! Well, looking at how our dog gets treated and fussed and spoilt, it has to be a dog! I have always been partial to a tickle behind my ears ;0)
