Lots of excellent support and training given. The staff are really friendly and always happy to help.

Personally, I have become a happier, healthier person who feels very proud to say I own Leading The Way Pet Care Chorley.

Yes in pet related businesses and on Facebook.

Are there any downsides to the role?
Winter days can be long, cold and wet. Suitable clothing helps combat this, as does a flask of tea to warm those toes !
