Runner News – Important Announcements

Thanks for logging in, and Happy day to you!

 

SHARE THE LOVE!

By hiring us, our customers are taking such good care of their dogs!  It’s not a cheap service, but they love their pups, and they spend their money on us to make their pups Happy!  Show your customers how much their dog is enjoying their time with us by sending them pictures or videos of their pup having fun with you!  Share your run data and let them see for themselves how well their money is being spent! You don’t need to do it too often, just once a week or so.  Your customers will love it!

 

YOU ARE SAVING LIVES!

Recently during a conversation with an Animal Control Officer, I was told “You do know that you saved that dogs life? Right?”  They were talking about a particular dog in our group, that we have been exercising for a few months.  She told me that if it wasn’t for the exercise, she thinks the dog would have been euthanized by now.  I don’t know about you, but that made the hair on the back of my neck stand up.  It made me think about just how many dogs we may have already saved from shelters, and euthanasia.

People hire us for all kinds of reasons. Some just want to give their dogs a weekly exercise treat, and that’s great.  Some hire us for weight control, and that’s great too.  But, some people hire us because they, or their dog are at the end of their rope.  They just cannot provide what the dog desperately needs.  These are the dogs that I love the most, the ones that really need us.

I can’t, and don’t accept credit for saving these dogs.  That credit belongs to you.  I’m proud that I provide an environment where this magic happens, but I’m even more proud of all of you.  Thank you.

 

TAKE A FRESH LOOK AT THE AVAILABLE RUNS!

Some of the available dogs on the HDRC Calendar have very flexible schedules.  I place them on a day that works for my schedule, as well as the owners, but they are not limited to those days!  Check the post title, and the notes section for details about their availability

Just so the new runners understand, every dog that you see on my “Map My Run” app feed is available to you!  The runs that I do are all available to the group, and they are on our calendar.  I keep them until the right runner comes along, who wants to take over.  Then, I take on the new arrivals all over again!

The runs on my schedule are also available for you to just try a dog out, meet them and see how they run!  Just ask!

Please take advantage of our group calendar!  It’s the best location where we can all see what’s going on!  Need a run covered? Add it to the calendar.  Need a run? Check the calendar!  Set YOUR calendar up to notify you when new dogs are added, or changes are made!

 

WE’RE HIRING!!!

As usual, we have more demand for service than we can keep up with!  My schedule is just about maxed out, so we’ll have to get the new dogs in a waiting list until we get some new faces in the group.  Know anyone? Know anyone who knows anyone?!!  I can get cards to you to pass out to any potential runners you may know, or you can just send them to the site to apply!  Make sure you tell them to mention your name so you get your incentives!!! (see below)

 

$$ FOR RUNNER REFERRALS

Here’s a way to offset the cost of your running insurance, or more! (Another offer that I’ll extend as long as I can make it work!)

If you recruit a new runner, when they complete 10 paid runs, we will cover the cost of your next insurance premium payment.

When your new recruit completes 50 paid runs, you will receive $100 bonus.

So far, 3 runners have earned their yearly insurance premium, and 1 of them has earned their $100 bonus!!  Get in on this, it’s a win for everyone!

 

A NOTE ABOUT THE LEADERBOARD

  I want to emphasize that this is not a competition.  Every one of us runs with dogs for a reason.  Some do it for the extra miles, some do it for the extra cash, and some do it just because it’s a fun hobby.  The miles are the miles.  It’s just a fun way to see your, and everyone else’s progress throughout the year.

LEADERBOARD

Here’s the first results of the new year! I’m doing my best to get out of the way!! Steph, Alan Tamara and Sarah Fowler are with me in the top 5, and Michele, Angela, Carla and Jessica are right on our heels!  Look at the size of our group!!  I can’t believe it!!
